    Seems like the only time I'm on this site is to post job openings or when positions have been frozen.

    I think I have good news. It appears that our previously frozen sports writing position has thawed out in time for high school football season. Position was originally for our college beat but I have strong feeling that it will become a general assignment position for now that could morph into the high school or college beat later down the road.

    This isn't official but from what I understand, the position will be a No. 2 high school writer and will help with colleges -- Div. I Cal State Bakersfield and our two JCs Bakersfield College and Taft College.

    Once HR clears us to run a job posting on journalismjobs.com, I'll then post the position on here. I'm just giving everyone a heads up. If you previously sent in your resume and portfolio, and are still interested in the job, I'd advise you to update us on your whereabouts.

    We'd like to have someone in here by the end of August, and I don't know anything about pay at the moment. It's not officially opened until HR finishes paperwork.

    Does this job replace a certain columnist who left the paper recently? I knew him and hope that he's doing well in his new situation.

    Yes in body. No in position. We will no longer have a columnist. He sent an e-mail last week, saying he's arrived in Hershey, and getting everything set up.

    Quite a transition Andy Kehe is making, from writing about roller derby in Bakersfield to helping disadvantaged kids in Hershey. Good luck with what sounds like a noble life choice.

    Andy and his family were always first class when it came to things like that. I believe they had foster kids more than once. I really do wish him the best in Hershey.

    Off the topic, but I lived in Hershey during high school so I thought I'd throw in a response. Nice place, especially to raise a family and quite especially if you like chocolate. Yes, the odor is pervasive. Reese's factory is in town, as well, so you get the roasted peanut smell on that side of town. Not the place to go if you're looking to lose weight.

    And a hell of a writer as well. I was fortunate enough to cover a few things with Andy.

    Good writer. Good person, pure and simple.
