    Honestly, a bump.

    I can answer any question you may have about the job or city.

    Did they ever do something about stinky Staley's? I hated driving by that as a kid.

    Decatur's got a long tradition of being a good group of folks.

    Well, it's got a new name -- Tate & Lyle. Same smell. Windows up, heating and cooling off while driving by.

    Having worked in Decatur before my current gig, I can tell you a few things. Yes, ADM and Staley still smell. Can't nothing be done about that.

    JBK (and the rest of the sports staff) are good people. Like most other staffs around the country, they've mastered the art of doing more with less. The coverage area is large, which can stink. The upside is that there's a fairly dynamic high school sports scene, including one of the best small-school football and boys basketball conferences in the state.

    There's plenty of opportunity for designers to flex their creative chops there. Lack of space is hardly ever an issue.

    Decatur has good people who do good work.
