    The editors of the Palm Beach Post are seeking a sports copy editor.

    We want an editor who is eager to work with writers to improve stories and can write graceful and direct display type. We value energetic editors who can add to a collegial atmosphere.

    The best candidates will have at least three years of experience on the copy desk of a daily newspaper. Page-design skills are helpful but not required. Enthusiasm for working with our Web-site editors is vital, and we will offer instruction in online editing.

    The Palm Beach Post is one of the most-honored newspapers each year in judging by Associated Press Sports Editors. We have a sizable staff and lots of space. We cover four pro teams, four major colleges, the PGA and LPGA tours, Grand Slam tennis events and the Winter and Summer Olympics. We compete tenaciously on the biggest stories in South Florida and beyond.

    To apply, send a resume, cover letter and any appropriate work samples to Dave Tepps (dtepps@pbpost.com). The mailing address is 2751 South Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach, Fla. 33405.

    Having spent some time in the area, though, not exactly a great place to live.

    Everything is a matter of taste, but West Palm Beach is undesirable? Some people might love it compared to, say, L.A. Or the location of other jobs on the board --- McAllen, Texas; Decatur, Ill., Mason, Iowa......

    This might run second to earlier obvious statement. Yet it is, truly, a matter of taste.

    Exactly. Palm Beach is at .... the beach. How can that be bad?

    I'm just saying, having lived there, it wasn't quite what I was expecting, especially if you have a family. It is a great paper though and should be a great job, but it costs a TON to live there, the crime is terrible (and I know everywhere has crime, but it's really bad there), the people aren't terribly friendly and traffic and construction will only get worse. If you're single it's probably less of a chore to live there, but don't expect it to be anything close to paradise.

    Having lived in SoCal for many, many years and then in South Florida, that's the truth.

    Palm Beach is a fabulous place to live. You just have to pick the right areas.

    It's got everything and more (the threat of hurricanes).

    Bottom line: South Florida is not as interesting as SoCal, but living in Palm Beach County is hassle-free compared to L.A. and vicinity.

    Plus, from all reports, the Post is a very good place to work.
