    I had no idea that there were weeklies in NW Montana other than the Hungry Horse News.

    I've always tried to imagine myself in Montana. That would be something.

    Yep.
    As for the area....
    Cost of living isn't exactly cheap but Polson's an awesome place to be. Especially during the annual cherry harvests on Flathead. Mmmm. Gorgeous country.

    First of all, how great can it be if they want you to take pictures!
    Plus, it's Montana.

    Montana rocks, you foof.

    Hagadone is the devil, no dental, shitty health insurance, a confusing, evil vacation policy that I'm not sure anybody really understands. The company runs its weeklies out of Idaho, cause that's where it's headquartered (or so say people in the know).

    Polson's on the reservation, and the Leader's the paper where the entire staff quit to form a competing paper a few years back. Not sure if that rag's still around though.
