    Note: Bemidji is a town in north-central Minnesota of about 13,000, according to Wikipedia. It connects three Native American reservations.

    Did the old SE finally retire?

    Good hockey town if you're into that.

    The guy who covers BSU hockey (Division I - WCHA) et al. said he's going to St. Cloud. I'd figure he and this position are one and the same.

    When did Jim Carrington retire? He was there 52 years. I don't think he went to St. Cloud.

    Yep. If I had the flexibility to move right now, I'd put my hat in the ring.

    How big is the sports department and what is the pay?

    Three writers for some reason for a two or three page section. The pay probably starts in low 30s.

    That... that hardly sounds awful.

    It's Bemidji, so a lot of people can't hack the climate. There is a lot of crime for a small town, likely not helped by the poverty associated with the nearby reservations.

    The editor is fairly new in the job, having started in November. I've met him and seems nice enough. He's a marathon runner, if that helps in any way.
