    Newsroom of 11?

    I guess technically they're ahead of the old 1 x 1,000 rule of thumb of newsroom worker per thousand circulation. But I remember when they were scraping 20K on Sunday and that wasn't that long ago.

    I got offered this job back in '08 after I was laid off as an ASE at a larger paper. Ended up turning it down at 35K per year. It's a do-it-yourself sort of thing. Like the ad said, it could be a solid gig for a young journalist looking to jump into an editor's role.

    Just be sure and keep the suicidal thoughts out while you live in one of the most boring areas in the country. Ardmore is a good-sized town, but absolutely nothing to do there. You're about 75 minutes from Norman and 90 from OKC, and another 90 from Texas.

    Chances are you'll lose your entire salary at the casinos in attempt to cure the boredom.
