    Company: Sidney Sun-Telegraph
    Energetic Sports Writer/Editor
    Sidney, Nebraska
    Job Status: Full-time
    Salary: Not Specified


    Immediate need for a motivated, talented Sports Writer/Editor for a community that craves local sports coverage.
    We ask a lot at this five-day daily located in a rapidly growing and active city in the Nebraska panhandle. We cover five high schools, all the way from regular season to state. In addition, we follow Legion baseball, rodeo, community soccer leagues--even the local cricket team. Sidney is the corporate headquarters of Cabela's, so there are opportunities to feature outdoors sports, as well.
    The ideal candidate will be equally adept at game stories and features. Photography skills are a big plus. InDesign skills are welcome, though not required.
    The Sidney Sun-Telegraph is the oldest paper in Nebraska's panhandle. We publish Mon.-Fri. in the afternoon. The community features nightlife, a running/biking trail and many community activities. It is located near historic sites (Oregon Trail, Pony Express). Cheyenne and Denver are in easy driving distance.
    Send cover letter, resume, references and 3-5 clips to publisher@suntelegraph.com

    Seems more of a nub than panhandle.

    ° named for Sidney Dillon, a railroad attorney

    ° as of 2010, there were 6,757 people, 2,893 households, and 1,764 families


    ° Harry Northup, actor and poet
    ° Ken Ramos, baseball player
    ° Luke Short, gunfighter

    Wiki on Ramos: Kenneth Cecil Ramos (born June 6, 1967 in Sidney, Nebraska) is a former Major League Baseball player and all-star minor league player. He played in 14 games for the Houston Astros in 1997. Ramos' minor league career spanned ten seasons, from 1989 until 1998, including time with the farm systems of the Cleveland Indians, Houston Astros, and Minnesota Twins. While with the Kinston Indians, Ramos earned a spot on the 1990 Carolina League all-star squad. He made the majors in 1997 with Houston. He saw action in fourteen games, primarily as a pinch hitter, although he did play two games in the outfield. He compiled two walks, an RBI and a .000 batting average in fourteen plate appearances.

    Tell you what, he can go to bed knowing he drove in 1 run in the majors. .000 average but hey, an RBI. Probably a cute little story to be told there.


    Gotta see what the store of the gunslinger's all about ...

    Wiki: Short was born in Mississippi; his family having moved to Texas when he was two years of age. As a teenager he left home after it was rumored that he had killed another youth with a pair of scissors. He became a cowboy, working herds north to the Kansas railheads. He traveled to Abilene, Kansas, in 1870, and attempted to make a living as a professional gambler.


    And yo ...

    Get a steak at Dude's and a BJ at the bar.
