    Two hours in Iowa (or anywhere in the Midwest) isn't that bad. Come to think of it, pretty much everything in the midwest is two hours from everything else.

    Your weight in semicolons.

    Seriously, I would guess low-30s. With a staff that size, I'd be shocked if it were more.

    I bet you could get them close to 40K. Lee pays fairly well for management.

    Depends on what time of year it is......... I sure wouldn't test I-35 a lot of winter days up there.

    What you'll most be testing in Mason City is your patience ... not that you're expecting New York City or anything, but you shan't be finding much for entertainment.

    Well, guess we know where this comes from after looking at the Des Moines job thread... At least you know you can move up from here.
