    Who is the new sports editor at the Index-Tribune, or is there one? Steven Serafini, supposedly retiring after 25 years or so, is still listed as the SE on the paper's site. Also, there has been no article or notice announcing a new SE. What's going on there?

    I don't know any of that, but this is one of the very few job listings I've seen that'd tempt me to consider abandoning a comfortable retirement. Living in Sonoma? Good luck with that drug and alcohol-free workplace thing.
