    The Adirondack Daily Enterprise and Lake Placid News have an immediate opening for a sports/features editor.

    A UNIQUE SPORTS ENVIRONMENT: In addition to six high schools and two colleges, we make a priority of the world-class winter sports in Lake Placid, host of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics. Other characteristic local sports include triathlons, rugby, lacrosse, horse shows, canoe/kayak racing, skiing, ice skating and lumberjack games, plus a wide array of outdoor activities.

    SPORTS DUTIES: This editor is responsible for making sure local sports get excellent coverage in print and online. This includes managing and editing the work of a senior sports reporter and a sports/outdoors reporter, laying out all sports pages, updating our Web sites and covering local sports passionately with writing and photography.

    FEATURES DUTIES: This editor is responsible for laying out an outdoor recreation magazine every other month, laying out special sections (about one a month) and laying out three pages of the weekly lifestyles section.

    PREREQUISITES: Applicants should be community minded and demonstrate skill — earned through experience — in page design, editing, writing and photography.

    TO APPLY: The deadline is Aug. 23. E-mail a resume, references and samples to Managing Editor Peter Crowley at pcrowley@adirondackdailyenterprise.com.

    I have to echo the above. I was just there two weeks ago for a rugby tournament. Absolutely beautiful area and seems very big on sports. Every other shop was a sporting goods retailer and word around town was they host some kind of tournament (mostly hockey) something like 45 weeks out of the year.

    Night life was pretty good as well for being sort of out of the way. Lake Placid in particular had a few nice bars worth the price of admission.
