    The Daily Dispatch, a 7,500-circulation, six-day a.m. on Interstate 85 near Raleigh and Durham, is seeking applications for a potential position in its editorial department.

    The ideal candidate will be able to readily and skillfully transition between sports and news as needed. During the school year, the position's focus would weigh more heavily on sports, as the publication covers eight high schools in three counties. In the summer, more time would likely be devoted to news. Page-design skills -- or at least the ability to learn them (in InDesign) -- are required.

    Applications accepted both from full-time candidates and from candidates who would be interested in working on a part-time basis in sports only.

    Send resume, cover letter, references and clips (plus design samples, if any) to:

    Glenn Craven, editor
    The Daily Dispatch
    P.O. Box 908
    Henderson, NC, 27536

    E-mailed applications will be accepted at gcraven@hendersondispatch.com. Candidates may also apply via Journalismjobs.com.

    Yes, it is a Paxton shop. Beware ...

    Positive: Glenn Craven ... if I were important enough, he would get a seal of approval. Good guy, understands his market and walks the line well on ambition and reality.

    Negative: Paxton. Reason enough to make sure one's head is on a swivel. That's not Glenn's fault, but anyone who knows what they've done to the paper in Durham as well as their other properties should not take this thumbs-down part of the equation lightly.

    Not too far from the Triangle when one wants to do something on a day off. Could be a lot worse ...
