    Here is our ad from journalism jobs. It will be on APSE ASAP.
    This is a position that I was allowed to create to complement our staff of four full-timers and a couple part-timers. We cover about 20 high schools and we are serious about being good.
    I've been here for almost six months after spending around nine years at The Times of Northwest Indiana.
    I'm a  longtime lurker on these boards - back to the sportspages days. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an e-mail or a PM.
