    We're looking for a deadline-driven writer to cover high school sports for The Manhattan Mercury in Manhattan, Kan.

    The Mercury covers the 6A Manhattan High Indians as well as five smaller area schools, so we need someone who can juggle the schedules of numerous sports teams for the greatest coverage and best stories possible. The person also will assist with K-State sports coverage. Night and weekend hours are required.

    Manhattan is a young, vibrant city of 56,000 in the scenic Flint Hills. It's home to Kansas State University and adjacent to Fort Riley. It has a small-town atmosphere with big-city amenities. Nearby, Tuttle Creek Lake and Konza Prairie wildlife preserve provide lots of opportunities for outdoor recreation.

    The Mercury offers a fair salary with a benefits package that includes medical, vision, dental, three weeks vacation after the first year and profit-sharing plan. Bachelor's degree and reporting experience a plus, but most of all, we want someone who is intelligent, hungry and willing to work as part of a team.

    To apply, please send a cover letter, resume and three to five writing clips to Megan Moser at mmoser@themercury.com. No phone calls, please.
