    Good to see Dodge is expanding out to a 2-person sports staff back (and maybe they have for some time).

    Not mentioned in this post is the new casino they've built in Dodge City, making it a destination stop for those with gambling issues living in Central Kansas. It's something that really no other small town in Kansas could offer, so if you consider that kind of thing a perk, there are several worse places in Kansas to work as a sports writer.

    When will people be contacted for interviews and when is a decision expected to be made?

    We should be making calls for interviews within the next couple of weeks. We could start inquiring for interviews as early as right after Christmas. We will be looking to fill the position as soon as possible.

    Almost tempting enough to make me pack up and move. Almost.

    Any idea of the pay scale?

    If I had to take a stab at it, I'd guess $25K or less. Most likely less.
