    But it's pretty close to Tahoe, at least that's what I've heard.
  7. But it's a "dry heat" as they say. And it doesn't make a single bit of difference. Effin' hot is effin' hot.

    down here in the deep south, 95 in the summer feels like 120.

    My brother played for the Scorpians (Golden League ball club) there in Yuma a couple of years ago. I flew into San Diego and drove over there. Weather in July in SD? 75. As I climbed the mountains, the thermostat in the car started climbing as well. When I got to the other side, it was triple digits. Then when I got to the ball park that night, still over 100. At midnight, over 100. The next day, over 100. It's hot. Real hot.

    Nothing much around there. There's a casino on the Cali/Ariz border and Mexico is right there as well. I guess that means you can get cheaper gas there.

    Occasional sick criminals aside, Yuma can be a neat place to make a 2-3 year pit stop, especially if you're young, open for some adventure and, yes, looking to build some clips. Definitely a stepping stone paper. Randy Hoeft (the ME listed in the ad) has been there a good long time, and some of the people that have worked for him have gone on to much bigger and better things. By the time your days in Yuma are done, you'll definitely know if the newspaper business is for you.
