We are located on the Washington/Idaho border, about two hours south of Spokane. Our region offers immediate access to a multitude of outdoor experiences including hiking, camping, white water sports, fishing and hunting. Housing prices are reasonable, the weather is mild and the crime rate low. We offer an employee stock ownership program and a solid benefits package.

    Emerson, the ME, was the paper's SE a long time ago. I've had two dealings with him, as a candidate for the city editor job in the early 1990s and again about 10 years later when I sought his insights regarding a job I was interviewing for elsewhere. I found him to be unusually and refreshingly candid both times. One of the straightest shooters I've encountered in the business. The paper was exceptionally good for its size in the 1990s, but I haven't seen it since.

    Covering Wazzu and Idaho can't be that bad. I'm sure since it is in Lewiston it's probably just covering home games. I lived just north in Moscow when I was younger. I remember Lewiston being by the river, and it smelled like crap from the paper factory or whatever was there.

    I applied and have heard nothing. Guess that means I wasn't a finalist.

    Been through there a couple of times. Decent place, if you're not a big city person.
