    The Star-Banner, a 55,000 circulation daily newspaper in north central Florida, is looking for an editor who has a passion for local sports. We publish a smart, full-service sports section, but our reporters don't cover the Buccaneers, the Magic or the Devil Rays. Sure, we sometimes staff Gators or Seminoles games, and we follow the elite athletes from our area who make it big in college and professional sports -- pro football players, golfers, bowlers, anglers, jockeys, baseball players and boxers, among others. But we devote most of our time to doing what no one else can -- covering local sports like nobody's business. High school sports. Golf tournaments. Outdoors sports. Even rec leagues and youth sports. We cover the sports played by people in our own community. So applicants should have passion for local sports, at least two years of supervisory experience in a newsroom, demonstrated leadership ability and some page design skills. The Star-Banner is a New York Times Company newspaper nestled in the rolling hills of Florida's horse country, about an hour north of Orlando, an hour west of Daytona and 40 minutes south of the University of Florida. We offer competitive pay and terrific benefits. Send resume, cover letter and samples of your work to Tom McNiff, managing editor, Ocala Star-Banner, 2121 SW 19th Avenue Road, Ocala FL 34474. Or e- mail your interest to tom.mcniff@starbanner.com
  2. Anybody know where the former SE went? We can sorta figure out why ...

    Ocala is a pretty good product from what I know of it. yeah, it doesn't do a lot of high-profile stuff, but it's still pretty solid.
    NYT is a pretty good chain overall, but like everyone else, times are tough and their stock has plummeted in the past two or three years.
