    I'm extremely surprised this wasn't filled when it was posted earlier.

    It pays just $11 an hour. Scribes get just one day off at a time, not two days in a row. No AP wire and the circulation is above 15, which is odd.

    Better than no job at all, but I can see why folks aren't staying around.

    I have accepted the open sports position with the paper.

    Wasn't I.C. Murrell at OKC not too far back?

    Murrell replaced Robert Tuberville, who is now working at the Arkansas 24/7 affiliate.

    I believe Murrell was also in Mississippi at one point during his career.
