    CNI was my first newspaper company. Dink NeSmith is good people, who gives a damn about good newspapers. Not to say he doesn't run things to a budget, but if you're gonna work for a weekly (or twice-weekly, in this case), there are far worse chains to be in. When I was with the company, one of its other properties had a 20-something as publisher, a guy Dink had spotted had talent and given an opportunity to.

    Otherwise, the high school football team just snapped another team's 53-game losing streak, so don't expect the sports to be good. They're in a mostly Gwinnett County region, so you're either not going on the road or going a fair ways a lot.
