    Just for full disclosure, this is a contract position --not full time. I contacted Mr. Wilson about the job, and he seems like a great guy, but I know this information would have been helpful up front.

    and in one corner of the Glasgow general store, a stock boy refilling the tampon aisle sees this as his big break.

    Knowing nothing about Glasgow beyond what I just read in 30 seconds on Wikipedia -- and, honestly, having never heard about it before -- is it the type of place that can afford to be picky?
    It's obviously an entry level position at a small paper in rural Kentucky. Anyone who has ever seen the types of resumes a place like that would attract can understand why they're looking for anyone who can form a sentence. Hell, I work at an established paper with a fairly good reputation. The last time we had a sports writer opening several years ago, the vast majority of the applications made me cringe.

    Seeing as it's a contract job, I'm guessing one might not be able to afford to be picky.

    Scott Wilson is a good guy, at least as far as I can tell from my limited dealings with him. And Glasgow is a nice little town, about 20 minutes from Bowling Green and another 45 or so minutes from Nashville.

    I'm guessing you can't get to Tahoe in 20 minutes.
