    Wow, my old stomping grounds ... and my first full-time journalism gig, back at Suburban Life before it went through about three or four mergers with other suburban weekly/bi-weekly papers.

    Don't know anything about Shaw media, but there are still plenty of good stories to be told in the western 'burbs.

    Probably a good gig for a recent college grad.

    "I like to shop in downtown Downers Grove ..." :D
