    Nice paper, beautiful area, cost of living through the roof (resort town).

    Anyone know of the pay scale?

    10-person staff at a 30K paper? That's impressive, especially with no pros or major colleges. Area is pretty and pretty expensive these days.

    Probably near-impossible to find a house costing less than $250-$275K in Bend, and I seriously might be underestimating since the last time I checked.

    Preps are big. They've bumped up their coverage of the state's Pac-10 schools the past couple years but the trip over the mountain to cover games in Eugene or Corvallis is a bitch and can be pretty dicey in the winter.
  6. Great town, but unless you have a sugar mama (or sugar daddy), buying a house in Bend on this salary is probably out of your wheelhouse. Still, I'm hoping this gig comes open again in about a year. Would love to move there if a job came open in the sports department.
  7. The housing in Bend is a little weird because they didn't have the downturn that the rest of the country has gone through the last couple years. It might be coming soon, though. Bend seems to buck a lot of trends. Heck, the paper has a growing circulation and a growing staff. And they charge for access to their Web site.
    This is the second job they are filling in short order. They just made another hire recently.

    I believe the word coordinator does not mean you'll be in the office calling the shots. I'd bank on doing plenty of writing. pretty solid paper, though.

    Out of curiosity, when did this become a solid paper according to SportsJournalists.com? If you read the threads from the last 2 years, this paper has been shredded on here.

    The town, however, is awesome. It has everything, hippies and members of the GOP. Outdoor activities out the wazoo and a great nightlife. Just a fantastic small city to live in, if you can afford it.

    you have to accept it for what it is. i think they have too much outdoors and over reach, but i actually read it, which i can't say for many sports sections.
