    Anyone know anything about this? If so, what is the place, people, etc. like?

    The Lincoln Journal Star, a 78,000-circulation daily located in the hub of Huskerland, is looking for a versatile staffer who will be able to design pages, edit stories and write. Yes, write. We're looking for design talent first and foremost – and most of the duties will be on the night sports desk – but if you can't shake the writing bug, you are welcome here. An interest in college football would be nice, but all sports enthusiasts with solid newspaper experience are welcome to apply. Please come prepared to talk about the Web. HuskerExtra.com is a huge part of what we do.
    Lincoln is the capital of Nebraska and is home to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Go Huskers!). The Journal Star is a morning paper with a circulation of 78,000 daily and 84,000 Sunday. The paper is printed on a new state-of-the-art flexo press that has outstanding photographic reproduction. We emphasize local news with strong coverage of schools, sports and news in the 17-county region of Southeast Nebraska.
    To learn more about our company and benefits and to apply, please log onto:

    And click on employment.

    Should we assume that any newspaper that would insert "Go Huskers" into a job listing would be a paper full of homers?

    You could think that, but you'd be half right, at best. Most of the coverage there is pretty even-handed.

    If that's true, then that's unfortunate. If I worked there, I wouldn't be happy that "Go Huskers" is inserted into that listing.

    Lincoln isn't the greatest place to live, but there's worse. Steve Sipple is a great reporter there, but there are indeed some homers (like almost everywhere).

    Design listed first = not a copy editor/reporter position.

    I'm embarrassed for Journal Star staff members after reading that ad.

    Lee paper. Undoubtedly written by someone in HR, not sports. And yes, it's embarrassing.

    I'm pretty sure that's done by someone elsewhere at the paper, certainly not in sports. The guys I know from the Journal-Star are nothing but objective.

    I know a couple, and yes, they're pretty objective. Lincoln's a nice town, definitely not the worst place to live. And from the people I know there, I don't hear any complaints about the job or the people there.
