    Was the paper down the road from me in my last stop. There has been some turnover since I left, so I don't know the situation there now, but 3 years ago, it was going downhill from what I remember.
    Small shop, probably a step up for someone wanting to leave a weekly....but Greencastle is kind of in the middle of nowhere. Indy is only an hour or so away though and Purdue is an hour away as well, IU about 90 minutes.
    One pretty cool aspect of the job is covering the Monon Bell football game against rival Wabash. Lots of history and a pretty cool game, probably one of the biggest D-3 football games in the country. 10K+, plus it's on national TV (usually something like HDNet, or whatever the channel is called now).
