    "Candidates should be from North Central West Virginia or willing to relocate."

    I'm sure there's a story behind that sneaking in there.

    Bonus points if you're from southern North Central West Virginia.

    Spent a little time in Fairmont a few years ago because my employers at the time had an office there. Can't say that I'd break my neck to go back there, but there's good Italian to be had.
