    ****We have another opening on our sports staff. One of our writers took a promotion to be the general manager/editor at the nearby Pierce County Tribune, which is also owned by Ogden Newspapers. Housing in the area seems to be getting a little better. All of our hires have found places with decent rents.

    Anyway, here's the posting:

    The Minot Daily News, a 19,000-circulation, seven-day newspaper in northwest North Dakota, immediately seeks a full-time sportswriter to complete our four-person staff.

    The region features competitive prep athletics along with two junior colleges and Minot State University, an NCAA Division II school in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. We also cover the Minot Minotauros, a junior hockey team in the North American Hockey League.

    The new hire will primarily cover preps. There are about 40 high schools in our coverage area (for the three in-town schools, we cover games regularly; the others we touch on in features and notebook items, with some travel to regional games between ranked teams). Occasional opportunities to cover Minot State and the Minotauros will also be available.

    We focus on writing clean, concise copy and also take our own photos. Photography experience is helpful, but we're willing to train the right applicant to use a camera. Layout duties for our sports department are simply formatting scores on our scoreboard page once or twice a week.

    To apply, send your resume and five clips to sports editor Daniel Allar at dallar@minotdailynews.com.

    What's the third in-town school besides Minot High and Ryan? Some Christian private school, I presume? Where is it located?

    You are correct. It's called Our Redeemer's Christian School. If you're familiar with Minot it's on 16th Ave SE, a few blocks East of Broadway/Hwy 83. The school is also directly across the street from South Hill Complex, where all the high schools and Minot State play softball.

    Thanks. Unlike former Ramstad Jr. High, you're definitely safe from the Souris up there.
