    I just posted this today on APSE, so I thought I’d drop it here as well.

    We had one of our guys move on and now we are looking to replace him by mid-August.

    If anyone wants more info (listing is below), feel free to contact me.

    Phil is good people and this is a good place for a younger person looking to get their break into the business.

    Pay isn't awful, or at least it wasn't. Plus, unlike the paper in Boise, they aren't cutting and are actually growing, so that is a plus.

    I liked living in Nampa, but if you are younger you will want to live in Boise and commute to work.

    The Boise paper must be really hurting. I offered them a nice little local feature that the outdoors editor wanted. He said he'd get back to me if the powers that be OKed it, but I never heard another word. Times they be tough all over. Makes a person consider getting an honest job.
