    The fact that you're sending your resume and clips to the editor of a different paper in the chain should be a warning sign.

    Ding, ding, ding.

    They've got some capable people on their sports desk, too, so I'm curious as to why they're not promoting from within.

    I'm an alum of a paper in the chain. PM me if you need a bit of info, although I'm a bit removed from Columbus, do know a bit about some of the people involved.

    Just discovered that Jay Heater took this job. He was the former SE in Pocatello, ID and before that the ME in Crawfordsville, IN (and some moons ago...The Contra Costa Times). He must have missed all that corn and flatness.
    Welcome back to the Heartland Jay.

    Holding my tongue, but I will just say that this isn't a paper that does a very good job of valuing/retaining sports talent.
