    From journalismjobs.com. Who wouldn't want to work at a paper named "Boomerang"?

    Great opportunity for an energetic, talented photographer who wants to grow. Entry-level or experienced applicants considered. The coverage includes general assignment, features, enterprise and sports including the University of Wyoming, high schools and a vast range of outdoors subjects. The Laramie Boomerang publishes Tuesday through Sunday. The photo operation is entirely digital. Laramie is the home of Wyoming’s only four-year college and offers all of the attributes of a college town. Great access to fishing, hunting, skiing, hiking and other outdoor activities. The Denver metropolitan area is just a couple of hours away for those wanting a little more. This is a benefited position.

    Must be a tough paper to deliver.
  3. The boomerang got its name in the 19th century, from a founder who thought it would be fun to name it after his mule. They had a different definition of comedy back then than we currently do.

    For a moment I thought Bob Hammond had bought the farm. He's a Laramie institution, glad to hear his demise isn't the reason for this opening. Their main sports staffers (Richard Anderson is the ASE, I think) have been there a long time considering how small the paper is and they churn out a ton of local copy.

    I think one of their former photogs (Tim Chesnut?) was elected to the Laramie City Council.

    The Boomerang no longer has that funky web width, and does run lots of local photos, be it UW, LHS, the summer league baseball team or the Jubilee Days Rodeo. It's a small paper (6500 or so) but does a ton of Pokes' coverage, as might be expected.

    Laramie's surprisingly expensive for Wyoming, but a real college town. Not sure you could afford housing in Laramie on one income if that income is the Boomerang. You sure couldn't live in the Trees, near campus..

    But the gist here is, you could do a lot worse. Like Rawlins or Rock Springs.

    Agreed. Laramie wouldn't be too bad in a lot of ways.

    Rawlins or the Springs would be too bad in a lot of ways.
