    Publishing three days a week? Sports editor doing sports and general news? Things sure have changed since I was last in The Big, when the paper was six days a week and the sports writers only did sports.

    La Grande is a nice enough town, even though it's not really near much of anything. You're closer to Boise than Portland. Still, the cost of living is affordable, you should be able to find decent housing for not a lot of money, and the Blue Mountains make for a nice view.
