    It would seem they also need some copy editors, as well. Not that I'm questioning the tallent of the sports staff itself.

    They had an ad a couple months ago for another opening and there was a typo in there. Must be a trend.

    On another note, I wonder where Tim, the current SE, is off to. He's always seemed like a nice guy when I've talked to him.

    This paper is one of the few smaller ones not on a bare-bones staff, although VV isn't the best of places.

    It's actually closer to Vegas than Tahoe. My sister-in-law lives out there.
    If your system can't handle High Desert heat, avoid.

    Half hour from Tahoe? It's a half hour from Barstow. Not quite Tahoe.

    Of course. Half hour to Barstow, but 15 minutes to Tahoe. :D

    Exactly. And as for the heat, I read it's supposed to be 110-115 there this week.

    Set your clocks by the warm wind stirring things up each afternoon about 1 or so.

    101 degrees at 12 noon according to the weather service. Not the place to be in California.

    is that any worse than 95 degrees and 80 percent humidity in the deep south?
