    Ugh. Hagadone.

    Although I think the old man sold his gigantic damn yacht, and I haven’t seen the Travel Channel show featuring said fancy-ass yacht for years.

    Although the ad in the OP says "this job doesn't come around every day," it's come around again.

    They're looking for a new sports editor at the Bonner County Daily Bee in Sandpoint, Idaho. They haven't posted the job yet on J-Jobs, but will any day now. I'm sure the job description/duties are the same as above.

    Once again ... if you're interested and want more details, PM me.

    They've posted this on J-Jobs ... salary range listed at $30-35K. You can actually live decently on that in Sandpoint, IMHO.

    The ad is the same as the OP in this thread (just one year later):
