    The Sterling Journal-Advocate, in Sterling, Colorado, is seeking a full time sports reporter to cover high school and junior college sports in Logan County as well as active city and summer recreation programs. The newspaper prints six days a week and maintains a website and social media presence.

    The primary responsibility will be writing articles for the daily print edition and website, but the position also includes photography and some video and page design.

    The editorial staff is small and works hard to provide news from throughout our rural, agricultural community. We are looking for someone who takes initiative, learns quickly and is comfortable with the evolving world of digital news. A Bachelor’s degree in Journalism or related field is preferred; previous experience in the field is a plus.

    Sterling is the largest city in the northeastern part of the state, with a population of just under 15,000. It is less than two hours from both Denver and Fort Collins.

    We offer a competitive wage and benefits package including medical, dental and vision insurance, short- and long-term disability insurance, Company-paid life insurance, a 401(k) retirement savings plan, and immediate eligibility for paid time off.

    Interested individuals should send resume, with salary requirements, to jobs@dailycamera.com. Please enter “Sports Reporter” in the subject line of your email.

    15K, based on 40-hr work week, is $7.21 an hour. Colorado minimum wage is $8.23.

    This was a "featured job" in the right gutter on JJ.com?

    They figure you can't get high on a supply at that rate.

    The sad part is we all know if you are doing a good job it's closer to 50 hours than 40. So, more like $6 an hour

    And you're nowhere near Denver or the mountains -- this is in the middle of the northeast Plains. It's more of a Nebraska job than Colorado.

    It's going to be a lot more difficult to forage for food on the plains of eastern Colorado than it would be in the more temperate lush forested regions.

    I applied. They said I could run free classified ads for handjobs to supplement my income.
