    You'll put in an honest day's work every shift.

    I was there for a week recently, and each edition had a huge amount of space (especially for that market) for sports. Two inside pages devoted to NFL copy on some weekdays.

    I thought it was the better of the two papers there.

    Didn't this paper have an opening for the same job within the last year?

    I wonder what the number of people is that look at this ad, think for a minute, and say, "if I had any balls, I'd apply," finances/logic be damned.

    Friend of mine found her "balls" and applied for the Maui spot. She's been there several months and loves it.

    Maui is a union paper, but I have no idea about Honolulu. If Honolulu is like Maui, however, it doesn't pay to move anything over, so you would be expected to pay for it yourself or sell everything and buy new when you got there.
    For a variety of reasons, I turned down the Maui job in February. Regrets, I have a few, but then again, too few to mention.
    Anyway, expect to interview over the phone. And know that it's gonna take at least 36 hours to get home to the mainland if there's a family emergency. In many respects, it's a job for a young person with few ties. Good luck.
