    The Roswell Daily Record, an award-winning, independent daily newspaper in southeastern New Mexico with a circulation of about 11,000, is seeking a sports editor. Candidates for the sports position should possess strong writing skills, be familiar with sports terminology, be computer literate and able to meet deadlines. Experience in covering high school sports is a big plus. We’re looking for an aggressive editor who can provide play-by-play information, place games in the larger context and break down the statistics. Experience with photography and page layout (Quark) is preferred as they are daily duties for this position. The sports editor supervises our sports reporter, so management experience is helpful. Applicants should contact Andrew Poertner, editor, Roswell Daily Record, at andrewpoertner@yahoo.com, fax at (575) 625-0421 or send mail to Andrew Poertner, Roswell Daily Record, P.O. Box 1897, Roswell, NM 88202. Email is preferred. No phone calls, please.

    Oh Drippy, why would we release the hounds?

    Why would you post something like that before an ad? You're trying to incite something here. It's the same old act with you. It's old and it's tiresome. If you don't have anything positive to contribute, please take it to PMs.

    You are right, I shouldn't have put release the hounds before the post. For that I apologize to any one who may have been offended.
    As for you Hank, I'm so glad that sj's favorite troll is still getting his jollies off of trailing my posts. Do keep up the good work. I am proud of you.

    So is this an actual opening or an inside joke?

    Says the man (and I use the term very loosely) who posted ELEVEN MINUTES after mine (and for your simple brain, that's less than the half hour and three hours I posted after your pointless posts).

    And wouldn't that post directed at me been better kept to PMs, droopy drippy? Why can't you stay on topic, dawg?
