    The Hutchinson News needs an energetic and articulate writer with a passion for sports. The News, the flagship paper of the Harris Group, has a three-member sports staff.

    The successful candidate occasionally will have the opportunity to cover professional and Division I sports, but our primary focus is on high school sports in our 34-county readership.

    The ideal candidate should have a college degree in journalism and have some knowledge of Quark and PhotoShop.

    The News offers a generous salary and benefits package.

    Interested writers should send a cover letter, resume and three samples of their writing to: Mary Rintoul, managing editor, The Hutchinson News, P.O. Box 190, Hutchinson, Ks, 67501-0190 or email materials to mrintoul@hutchnews.com

    They cover 34 counties? Wouldn't that be nearly the entire state?

    No, there are 105 counties in Kansas. The coverage area is pretty much everything from Hutch to the Southwestern corner of the state, but they aren't covering games that far away on a regular basis. Lots of call-ins and what not. Unless thigns have changed, the focus is on the schools in Reno County and immediate surrounding counties.

    Pat Sangimino is good peeps. That's all I got other than the paper does a great job covering the men's NJCAA National Tournament each year.

    I actually thought that might have been a typo.

    You might think Wichita or Topeka or the KC Star might function as state-wide papers in Kansas, but they really don't. The Salina Journal circulates from Salina to Colorado in the northern half of the state and Hutch does the same in the bottom half. But while you are running their boxscores or whatever, you likely aren't driving six hours round trip to Meade or Jetmore for too many regular season games.

    Looking at the website, right now all the high school headlines are for Hutch High (a football powerhouse) Buhler and Trinity Catholic, local schools in or just outside of town.

    34 counties? Crap, most European countries aren't that large. That would have to be one hell of a prep roundup.

    The Hutchinson News, Hutchinson, KS., seeks a sports writer to cover prep sports and the NJCAA in our 36-county coverage area.

    The News is the flagship paper for the six Harris family-owned newspapers. It is known for its coverage of high school sports. The successful applicant also will design the sports section once a week, which means a working knowledge of In-Design or Quark is useful. Additionally, a journalism degree is preferable.

    The News needs a self-starter and rewards the writer with a competitive salary and benefits package.

    Please submit a cover letter, three references and three examples of your work by Dec. 30 to Mary Rintoul, managing editor, The Hutchinson News, Hutchinson, KS 67501-0190 or email required materials to mrintoul@hutchnews.com.

    Pat Sangimino left as Sports Editor, and Brad Hallier was promoted. He's covered the juco beat in and around Hutch for quite a while, but it's doubtful he will continue to do that and be the editor.

    Looks like they've added two more counties to cover since the original post.

    Anybody got a guess what this would pay at the top end?
