Why Casper, Wyo.? Three main reasons: - We encourage terrific work.

    I know the person who had this job pretty well. I also worked here for awhile. Solid gig for a designer looking to break in or move up.

    I work here (and on the desk, to boot). PM me with questions or just post them here.

    Decent paper. Decent town. But a zillion mile from anywhere else. No such thing as a "quick trip".

    What's the pay? Last time I applied for a similar job at a similarly sized Lee paper, they were paying $20k-$22k or something ridiculous.

    If it matters, no state income tax in Wyoming.

    Made considerably more than that at a Lee paper that was smaller. Look, ain't no one getting rich in newspapers, but this looks like a key position and I'm guessing they'll go 30k or higher for the right person. Doesn't strike me as an entry-level gig.

    Casper recently lost its Pioneer League team. That's all I got.

    That's actually kind of depressing.
