    From J-Jobs ... here's the link: http://www.journalismjobs.com/Job_Listing.cfm?JobID=1304972

    I can tell you that this is a solid paper in southeast Idaho, an area where -- for better or worse -- there is a heavy LDS presence.

    Something tells me some other SportsJournalists.com folks might weigh in on this one ...

    EDIT: Note ZagsFan's comments below. Apparently there's been quite a few changes here in the past couple years.

    Gorgeous part of the country if you love outdoors activities. I know nothing of the paper or its management, however.

    Three years ago this rag was pretty solid. Not so much anymore.

    Am I confusing this one with another Idaho paper, or has there been some Farmington-like turnover here of late?

    I used to work with the ASE, but I do not believe he is there anymore. But I heard he wasn't thrilled with it when he was there.

    Former stomping grounds of Jay Heater and poster NightHawk11200 IIRC.

    Idaho is a former SE there as well.
  8. We had an assistant sports editor? This must have been a while back. We didn't have one while I was there.

    Well maybe he was AME? Not sure...Jay Heater, who was mentioned by others. Everything I have heard is 2nd hand though.
  10. Jay was sports editor while I was there and for a couple more months after I left. Great guy and a great person to learn from.

    Since he departed, the Journal has been working with two people. I hope getting back to a close-to-full staff will help them get back to what we used to do. I really feel bad for the current staff that they've been trying to do a job that four people once did with two.
