    The Courier, the Littleton area’s weekly source for community news, seeks an eager self-starter to cover sports in the North Country. Candidates should be self-motivated, able to work individually and as part of a team, have keen attention to detail, exhibit good communication skills in person and on the telephone and have strong writing ability. The ideal candidate will also have a flexible schedule for covering events and be able to set and achieve goals for short-term and long-term stories. The candidate should also be ready to help out with some general news writing assignments on an as-needed basis. Computer and typing skills are also necessary and photography experience is a plus.

    I interviewed here about a year ago. I don't know what the pay will be now, but when I applied it was somewhere between $10-$12/hr.

    Krystin St. George is good people, too. If I remember correctly, she is the former sports editor there. It is a very nice office and a very nice town.

    You're a bit far up in New Hampshire, but if you don't mind the mountains, lakes and the hiking-type of atmosphere, it's the perfect spot for you.

    It's about 2 1/2 hours from Concord, so take that into consideration.

    You won't need to worry about doing your own pages because again, if I remember correctly, The Courier and some of the other papers under the Salmon Press send out their stuff and they lay everything out.

    The COL isn't too bad, you could find a cheap apartment up there.

    Expect most of your stories to be prep work with a considerable amount to be public interest stories considering you're in the lakes and mountains.

    Plus there are some pretty good little sports schools to cover.

    You'd think people at the Claremont paper might take a hard look at this in light of today's announcement about shutting down.
