    The link says the job is no longer available. What's up with that?

    EDIT: If you go to the Lee website, you can find it. Bound, the link you gave is the correct one, but for some reason it's not working right.

    Looks like a link to an internal Lee site. What say thou, fellow Lee types?

    Where did Cameron go?

    Not sure if this is Cameron. Mike Elder, who was a longtime editor in the St. Louis area, died recently at 52.


    I am not sure if you would be filling this position (BIG shoes to fill) or if another position is being created.

    Cameron didn't go anywhere and Mike was laid off last November. This isn't exactly a high school editor, more like a night copy editor to replace the night editor who is moving to the P-D copy desk.

    So not much writing involved?

    Probably none.

    Damn, I just read this and saw where Mike Elder died. That's two Journal longtimers in the past 18 months ... Dennis Barnidge and now Elder. Both very good dudes.
