    The Free Lance-Star is looking for a reporter who will focus on the 'Skins (but yes, this person will help with high schools during the offseason).

    Some a-hole took the last guy to hold this job.

    Good gig, good paper, good people. Go for it.

    Yeah, I hate that guy.

    Rich Campbell did a very, very good job for us. The person we hire has big shoes to fill.
  4. My hat's tossed in. Any guess on what the salary range will be? My guess would be $33-$38K.

    Rich did a great job. A byproduct of being a great guy. I wish him all the best at the revamped Times.

    If I were only in a different place, I'd be all over it.

    Justin, did you guys stop publishing on Mondays for a while? Or am I getting my papers mixed up?

    (Also: A helluva trip to Ashburn, if you're making that drive every day.)

    Not us.

    We will encourage the person hired to live north of Fredericksburg.

    Some A-hole. That was hilarious. :)

    I always liked the Free-Lance Star when I worked back in the area in the 90s. Home sweet home. Sweet gig, even if I am a Cowboys fan. Now I have to wonder if I can convince the wife to move back east so I can apply for this.

    Rich Campbell, that name sounds familiar.

    Anyway, I'm feeling very old as I type that I can remember working with Justin when he broke into the business. Also worked with him at another stop a few years later (and I should thank him for his role in making that happen). Even though he ignored my last pm, I feel confident in saying he's a good guy.

    All in all, sounds like a great gig, assuming there's an NFL season. :)

    Does the Free-Lance Star have Full-Time Employees?

    Never heard a bad word about Justin. And his poker tournament is the highlight of any soul's year.

    Looks like a good gig, but with 49,000 circ., couldn't pay more than $40k, still not bad in these times.
