    From JJobs: http://www.journalismjobs.com/Job_Listing.cfm?JobID=949029

    The Lodi News-Sentinel seeks a writer to handle game coverage, features and enterprisers. This job is ideal for someone who has a passion for sportswriting but the versatility to lay out a page, shoot a passable photo and intermittently cover general assignment news. We nurture fine writing skills and embrace in-depth reporting. The News-Sentinel is a family owned 16k daily located in a wine region 25 minutes south of Sacramento, near the Bay Area and Sierra. Competitive pay and benefits. Candidates should e-mail a resume and cover letter to Rich Hanner, editor, at richardh@lodinews.com.

    Circulation is 18,000, I think, based on a quick Google search.

    I just applied. It is only about 30 minutes from me. Hope I get it.

    Good luck, JD. I found that papers really stick to hiring local people, which was frustrating when I was applying to smaller papers all over the country in my job search not long ago.

    Thank you for the wishes. I was let go from the Woodland Daily Democrat last January due to budget cuts, which really changed my look on journalism. I am only 20, and that hit me hard. I love sportswriting, and really, REALLY want this gig.

    I wonder how many sports stories you get to do from the Playboy Mansion? ;)

    Plenty of foreclosed houses available, although you might have to provide your own floors and sinks.
