    I recommend living in Hugo so you have the opportunity to eat at the Busy Bee every day. Yum.

    What a variation between wanting a recent grad and a proven writer? I'm guessing the pay is the same no matter the experience.

    IT majors with sports background?

    As in Information Technology?

    I'm guessing they may want you to either start up or maintain a web site.

    You better be getting $40K for IT work.

    -_- The Website pains my eyes.

    But I imagine this is a very good place for someone coming out of school or working at a weekly or twice-weekly to make a jump to a daily.

    It also looks like a window for someone wanting to jump from news to sports or sports to news, which you don't see too often.

    It's common for reporters to make the jump from sports to news, or vice-versa.
