    Here's the post from JournalismJobs.com. If anyone wants any information, PM or email me. I'm leaving the Leader-Telegram after nearly five years as sports editor. Joe Ziemer will be replacing me as the editor, so this is an entry level type position.

    There will be layout involved but plenty of opportunities to write. The staff is as dedicated as you will find anywhere.
