    I've heard this place is a good springboard to Topeka and Santa Fe.

    I would avoid this one at all costs. I used to work in the region and the sports editor was expected to work a 60-hour per-week minimum.

    Beardown has no clue on this one. I was the SE (now the ME) and this job can be done in 40 hours per week. There are occasional longer weeks (as with any job like this), but never 60 hours.

    My wife is a New York Mets/Carlos Beltran fan. Would that help? ;)
