    Are you looking for that sports writing job that lets you write a bit of everything, design some pages, maybe shoot a few photos and learn a heck of a lot? If so, we're looking for you. The Rawlins Daily Times has an opening for a sports writer. You'll cover local high schools, outdoor sports activities and maybe jaunt to nearby Laramie for a D1 University of Wyoming game from time to time. We're a growing, 5-day-a-week, morning paper. The newsroom is changing and expanding. There are few better opportunities to learn the news business than we offer. We're within an hour's drive of a national forest, several mountain ranges, a desert and great fishing. Full medical benefits, a 401k plan and profit sharing are part of our employee package. To apply, send a cover letter that tells us why you're the person to join our staff, a resume and clips to Shelley Ridenour, publisher, The Rawlins Daily Times, P.O. Box 370, Rawlins, WY 82301. No e-mail applications, please.

    Anyone work in Rawlins? I have passed through it and seems nice enough despite being 4 hours from SLC and about 3 from Denver. Cost of living is low.

    I'll speak up for this paper. I've worked with Shelley (in fact, she's coming to my wedding) and she knows what it takes to run a small community paper. And she'll be open to pretty much any idea for stories you pitch her way. It's the type of job where you can get good stories if you dig hard enough.

    Unfortunately, Rawlins itself isn't much of a town.
  4. As a town, Rawlins is awful. Absolutely awful. And it's the biggest town for 100 miles in any direction.

    That having been said, the paper isn't that bad, or at least it wasn't under former publisher Dave Perry (who is no longer there). There's an opportunity here for someone to come in, work hard, and move on to a bigger paper in a year or two.

    Best thing about the town of Rawlins -- I-80 lead you away from it.
