    I'd guess a typo. Probably meant EOE or Equal Opportunity Employer

    I have seen it listed as EEO in other ads.

    That's the way CNC/Gatehouse always has listed its Mass. ads., with the entry level position listed first.

    I doubt the Ledger job ever will be filled, at this rate.

    Love the "if you live in or around Massachusetts, please apply" schtick. Nice code for "If you can't drive here, don't apply here."

    Once again, we present to you the path-of-least-resistance hiring practice, the bane of those trying to relocate.

    That was once a great Sports section.... sad.

    Should have gone after some of the talent that worked there years ago to restore it SOMEWHAT to what it once was.

    So when are they going to take Earl LaChance's name off the contact list on the Web site?
