    I was just going to post this. Good people down there, and living on the Gulf Coast doesn't suck.

    Beautiful area. Just a hop, skip and a jump from Tampa.

    Did they ever clean up all the oil from the spill last year?

    Was the Tampa area even affected by the spill? I didn't hear of anything.

    To get this thread back on track, the relatively new sports editor (who's been at the paper awhile) is a good guy, very easy to work with.
  7. It was. But a recent USF study showed it's cleaned up pretty well around there already with some trace gunk left under the sand.

    Don't know much about the paper, but it's a great area to live and work.

    I live in Tampa. The beaches around here were not affected by the oil disaster in any serious way. A tar ball or two, but that's it ... the actual damage took place hundreds of miles to the north and west.

    I spent a brief tenure as SE at the Herald, and there are a lot of worse places you can find yourself. It wasn't a good fit for me, personally, but anyone looking to step up from a weekly or a small daily can thrive. This is a community that actually cares about its local newspaper, and vice versa.

    Second that. As a designer you'd have a hand in some excellent h.s. football coverage. Bradenton is also home to the IMG Academies, where many a prodigy has gone to hone golf and tennis skills.

    Good luck getting anything worthwhile out of IMG. But I will second the notion on the greatness of the prep football. It's also enjoyable to be able to hop on the Sunshine Skyway on a day off to take in some baseball at the Trop or an occasional Bucs game.
