    The Havre Daily News in Havre, Montana, is seeking a highly-motivated, full-time sports writer to cover a variety of sports. The Havre Daily News sports department covers a wide range of athletics, including Montana State University-Northern, an NAIA Division school, as well as 13 local high schools. Several of our teams have made it to the state championships, and Northern teams frequently play in post-season tournaments. Aside from major college and high school sports, like football, basketball, volleyball and wrestling, we also cover everything from youth baseball to hockey to rodeo and all sports in between. Our sports section is hyper-local, meaning we concentrate fully on local and regional sports. Applicants must be willing to work nights and weekends, and whenever and wherever the sports action takes them. Sports photography skills are a huge plus. A journalism degree, as well as a background in sports writing and reporting are also a big plus, but not required. Respond with a cover letter and resume to George Fergusion, sports editor, at gferguson@havredailynews.com.

    A background in writing must not be required to come up with the ad.

    Montana State Northern's teams are known as the Lights. As in Northern Lights. Which prompts wonderful headlines like "Lights Out". (Damn, I should have gotten that copyrighted.)

    And, yes, Havre really is in the middle of nowhere. But there are plenty of elk to hang out with.

    Is Havre pronounced Harve like Favre is Farve?

    Maybe it's like have. Except this sounds like a have-not.

    Heard it both ways. As long as I could spell it, it was all good.

    Havre High School Blue Ponies. Great nickname.

    I spent a year at MSU-Northern playing football in the early 2000s. Very cold. Very isolated. Think Minot, ND -- but a lot smaller.

    One could do worse for a first-time gig, though. There's a grip of high schools to cover and the NAIA Northern Lights are at least decent in every sport.

    Oh, and this is where Seattle Times Mariners beat writer Ryan Divish started out a decade ago.

    Great. Way to answer the question by providing the correct pronunciation.

    And no period at the end was a great way to close it out.
