    Perhaps a nice escape hatch for someone who can't stand the thought of another season of high school football.

    I seem to recall hearing stories about these kinds of gigs not being the heaven that they sound like? What do people know?

    No more high school football? Check.
    Tropical climate? Check.
    Covering an island full of Tim Tebows? Not so fast!

    It would probably be like living on Hawaii. Ok to do for a year or two, but not a long term idea.

    And I'm sure the cost of living is pretty high too.
  5. I don't think relocation assistance is part of the package with this one.

    My brother, who's in construction, worked a job helping build a casino in St. Croix once. Said they had a giant mural of Tim Duncan painted on the runway.

    That's all I got ...

    Owned by Times-Shamrock out of Scranton, which bought it from the local cable/telephone/Internet company in 2008 when the latter was in bankruptcy with half a billion in debts. Won an APME awards for public service in 2007, 2008 and 2009, continuing the tradition established with the 1995 Pulitzer (when it was a Gannett property) and 2003 SPJ public service awards.

    Update: Article from the next issue of American Journalism Review is here. Also, I stand corrected on the awards.

    Probably a lot of nice babes live there, the major fringe benefit.
