    You know it'd be really swell to know what state Lewiston is in, you know, that silly basic kind of information.

    How do I know if I'm interested enough to bother the SE if I don't know where it is?

    Google Maps says it's 43 minutes to State College, 1:24 to Hershey.

    Well, you could take the back roads or you could stick to the highway. ...

    The Hershey Highway.

    I know Dan from college. He really is a great guy, a young guy, too -- 25 or so. He knows his stuff. I've met few better people in the business, and I really mean that. Most people are assholes 24/7, and I've never seen Graybill look down on someone.

    The challenge here is that you'll be working for an Ogden paper, and your salary probably starts at about $20k, based on what I know about the chain. And Lewistown is a hole. As someone in a previous Lewistown thread said, Sheetz is considered haute cuisine in this neck (pun intended) of the woods.

    The good thing about this is that you'll have forgiving deadlines; work with a really good boss; have State College 40 minutes away and Harrisburg an hour away if you floor it; and be in a really neat part of the country. And once the Narrows gets done, within the next year or two, there'll be no more Penn State football traffic delays!

    Sorry about that, yes Lewistown is in Pennsylvania. Was looking at an old thread when I did this.

    I second Wicked.

    Dan's a great person to be around. And, I imagine, work for.

    He does things the right way, too.

    At the risk of seeming like Korman's lackey again, I second Korman's words and third Wicked's. I can't imagine anyone having a bad word to say about Graybill, and you certainly won't here anything bad about him from anybody who worked with him at Penn State.
