    This is interesting. The position was posted on Oct. 14 on Journalism Jobs, but the "farewell column" from the last sports editor, dated Oct. 12, contradicts the posting. Looks like they posted it, along with a news editor position, after they hired someone? Anyone know anything on this?

    The Herald-Zeitung in New Braunfels, a six-day daily, is looking for a news editor and a sports editor

    News editor candidates should be highly organized with a flair for page design and excellent copy editing skills and news judgment. The news editor is in charge of the newsroom at night and thus has some assigning editor duties.

    Sports editor candidates should be highly organized, skilled in page design and possess excellent copy editing and deadline writing skills. The sports editor supervises one sports writer and coordinates correspondent writers and photographers.

    A BA in journalism, mass communications, English or related field and daily newspaper copydesk design experience is preferred. A thorough knowledge of either QuarkXPress or Adobe InDesign is a must. Send a resume to vshields@herald-zeitung.com.

    Excerpt from farewell column by Will Wright at: http://herald-zeitung.com/story.lasso?ewcd=1d205b7507ab0227

    "I’ve had plenty of help during my time here. A special thanks to reporters Jason Chlapek, Rick Breland, Kevin Washburn and Justin Coons, who will continue to chronicle the sports along with Jim East, who will be your new sports editor."

    As San Antonio grows north toward Austin, this has become even less its own market. Of course, there might not be a job open here anyway.

    Gosh, I wonder if that's the same Will Wright I used to work with back in the day (late 80s). Hey,the guy had ties to the area, so it's not out of the realmof possibility. Small world.

    That's a good part of Texas. Two large cities nearby, the Hill Country in your backyard and the coast a short drive (by local standards) away. And, of course, the Schlitterbahn and tubing.

    If it helps, this Will is black. He's been around the biz for a while, and from people that have worked under him, he's a First Class a-hole.

    There is no greater joy than that of Schlitterbahn. This could be the worst job in the world and it'd still be worth it just for that place!

    Outstanding water park. Becareful. You may gravitate to Kerrville and cover Tivy High on a full time basis.

    Schlitterbahn is a definite mark in this job's favor.
  12. Joe Schmoe knows of what he writes. A-hole is an understatement.
