    It was a difficult decision to leave the Antelope Valley, but I have been fortunate to be considered for some opportunities in the Midwest and will be relocating.

    I will answer questions about the position via PM. Interested parties can feel free to let me know, and I can also forward information on to the hiring editors. I think the section is in a good position, and I would like to see someone come in who can maintain things and take it to the next level. For a paper of its size, the resources are very good (an assistant SE, an associate SE, three full-time prep writers, a juco beat writer, an outdoors/prep writer and columnist Brian Golden) and space is plentiful for the goal of producing a comprehensive sports report of local, L.A. and national news.

    I liked the people in the newsroom, loved the challenge and liked what we accomplished.

    Always had a lot of respect for Toby and I'm sure he'll do well. California is just getting too expensive to live in on a journalist's salary.
