    Sports writer wanted The Nevada Daily Mail and Sunday Herald-Tribune in Nevada, Mo., has an immediate opening for a full- time sports writer to cover high school sports throughout Vernon County, the Nevada Griffons college-league baseball team and other sports-related activity, including occasional coverage of professional sports as time permits.

    It's easy to pronounce poorly paid.
  3. I hope you get an application for food stamps when you apply for that job.

    Something's wrong there. I recall the pay being higher when the job was posted previously. I hope that's not right because the high end of that scale is waaaaaaay less than what I make in the same position for the same company 20 miles away.

    One thing's for sure: For whatever reason, even though there have been applicants (I know for sure there have been at least three), they're taking their sweet time looking around this time. I think they're shy after the six-week and three-week terms of their previous SEs.

    but i thought you kicked enough ass 20 miles away to make up for any shortcomings at this place. i mean for the love of god, isn't your paper the paper folks in the region are clamoring to read?

    Took waaaaaay too long and now I'm happy to say I'm taken.

    But yes, the previous ad was for "sports editor" and the pay was $20,000 to $25,000.

    If they couldn't fill it before, what makes them think they're going to fill it now? Or in other words, can I have some of what they're smoking?

    Pay is shitty, yes, but I want to point out this one's for a sportswriter, not editor.

    Last I heard, it was a one-man sports staff.

    The person who gets this position will probably have to wear many hats.

    Maybe they just changed the title and knocked down the pay 5k.
