    Interviewed with Dale Brendel when he was in Independence, Mo. Didn't get the job, but liked him. I think he's been in Leavenworth for three or four years now. All I got.

    I know a person quite well who had this job fairly recently. The more cutbacks the company made, the more work they piled on this sports editor and most of it was not in the job description. The SE had to shoot photos for all kinds of non sports stories, then was charged with selling copies of those photos. I think they even tried to push work that should have been on the ad and business side on the SE.

    Another with "degree required."
  5. How will a paper ever find an SE without a degree in this job climate willing to work for poverty wages?

    A one-person staff with the size of town Leavenworth is, coupled with $20-25,000 a year?

    Jesus, has the business gone that far down into the toilet?
