    Great place to start, nice part of the country and Carlina is great people. Tivy is usually a great football team, too, so you're not ever watching bad football on Fridays.

    Anyone know anything about this place? Is it 50/50 writing and design?

    Pretty much. If you're not a slow designer. When I was there, you seldom had more than two pages a day in sports, so pretty easy to write and design the whole section. Usually news side helped out on Friday nights, too.
