    Here it is again.
    The Herald-Zeitung, a 9,000-daily newspaper in New Braunfels, Texas, (in the Hill Country between Austin and San Antonio) is seeking an experienced local sports editor who can ensure that coverage within our circulation area is second to none. Candidates should be highly organized, knowledgeable in page design and possess excellent editing and deadline writing skills. The sports editor supervises one sports writer and coordinates correspondent writers and photographers. A bachelor's degree in journalism, mass communications, English or related field and daily newspaper experience is preferred. Resumes should be sent to Sean McCrory, managing editor, at smccrory@herald-zeitung.com.

    How did the name Herald-Zeitung come about?

    From the same dictionary that gave us Schlitterbahn.

    Gosh, how long would it take me to learn how to spell that, anyway? Seriously, some shoes are simply too big to fill.

    The Herald, the community's English language paper, and the Zeitung, the German paper, merged in 1957.

    Good news: New Braunfels is in a fun, pretty area of Texas.
    Bad news: You are about 20 minutes from San Antonio and 40 minutes from Austin, meaning the bulk of your potential readers will likely be picking up an American-Statesman or an Express-News (are those both hyphenated?). Also means all the cool things in either city will be conceded to those papers and you'll likely be doing mostly preps and community (confession: I am assuming that, I don't KNOW that. But that's what suburban papers generally do).

    But Robert Earl Keen is playing Gruene Hall on New Year's Eve, so you got that going for you.

    If I could "meet" Leigh Nash I'd work for Coke Zero and vending machine pretzels.
