    Good luck with that. Probably will have to get someone to relocate. Move to the desert, so I can sit in an office all day? No thanks.

    Bill Speltz, who did a really good job covering the University of Montana at the Missoulian, got this gig.

    Quality sports department, plus I would have moved closer to the girls.

    This appears to be the job that just can't be filled. I feel for the staffers working shorthanded at that shop.

    I was just coming here to post that Speltz was gone. What the hell happened?
