    PM me if you want any details. I don't work here but I interviewed for the SE position last year. Emily Horos, the current SE, is on our board (infrequently) so she may see this too. :)

    Ice9, go to the paper's website. I believe it's Northern State in the NSIC is about the extent of the college coverage and Presentation College. Not the Jackrabbits. But Northern State has some nice sports teams.
