    My wife grew up here.

    The only thing I know about the paper, when we were on welfare and they set me up for an internship paid for by welfare (we were the only ones in the group sessions that wasn't hungover or stoned), they sent me to the publisher.

    He could have had a free intern, off the government's titty. He said he didn't have a desk for me.

    Used to be a prototypical mill town. Trying to diversify, and it's within driving distance of the coast, mountains and Eugene, but it's a mite isolated. High school is big and plays big-time sports (on a relative Oregon scale).

    I grew up reading this paper and I know that Roseburg is a big Oregon State town. Judging by their site it looks like they do write some original Pac-10 stuff.

    As someone said, typical mill town atmosphere. I stopped in and had lunch at the Denny's on my way to Crater Lake. I wasn't very impressed with the town. Beautiful driving in that part of the country, and there's probaby some pretty good outdoors fun to be had and written.

    That's the Denny's I worked at right out of my big layoff in 1994.

    Went from $25g a year to sweeping up cigarette butts off the parking lot at 6 a.m.
