    This one's been up before recently. Small paper, small town in the middle of nowhere. Terrible Web site.

    I know people who have had this gig before. You work like a dog, make nothing, live in the middle of nowhere and move on. It's a revolving door.

    Holy terrible website Batman!

    If it is a revolving door, would it be a good fit for a recent grad?

    Wonder if they filled the position a couple months and its open again or if they just never filled then?

    The position was filled, but that person left. They are also advertising for a reporter/paginator.

    If you need info on what you'll be doing, what the paper is like, what you can expect in pay, work environment, etc., then PM me.

    Probably not a bad job for a recent grad.
