    Seeking Sportswriter of the Future

    Innovative, high-performance media group seeks Internet-oriented journalist who wants to have fun in fast-paced newsroom. We want lively and engaging sports features including outdoor recreation, trend stories and people profiles – not a play-by-play recap of a game that readers already know the winner of. Successful candidate will help us envision and plan multimedia storytelling including audio slideshows, video and photo galleries. Must also be attuned to opportunities to engage readers through poll questions and other interactive online features. Be prepared for rapid change and lots of chances to learn new things. Knowledge of Adobe InDesign helpful. Work schedule will include some nights, weekends and holidays. E-mail letter, writing samples and resume to Sports Editor Tom DeSchriver, tdeschriver@poconorecord.com. Deadline: Wednesday, Jan. 15.

    Man, how do they hold the crowds at the Pocono Mountain East games when everybody is there to see the final score?

    I've only been a visitor there, but it seemed to me that there are worse small towns. The downtown has some life and there's a D-II university. Some people actually commute from there to NYC, and I imagine that's a real bitch.

    It's been a few years since I saw the paper. Note that it's owned by Ottaway, and Rupert Murdoch is expected to sell the Ottaway papers.

    Spent summers there for many years. Not a bad paper at all. Great place to live, really.

    Thought the same thing, shottie ... Well, not the part about Pocono Mountain East, but I laughed at the notion that "readers already know the winner of" high school sporting events.

    Is there a town in Pennsylvania that you know NOTHING about?

    Maybe you should run for governor in 2010!

    I know nothing about Peckville.

    This guy knows Peckville, but he's kind of at a loss on all of District 5 and 9.

    Never been there myself.

    Now, Pecksburg, I've been there.

    Peckville is in the Scranton area. A small, NEPA town. I think they have a few good watering holes or so I've heard. There's a bit of info about grand ol' Peckville.

    Bet they occasionally write game stories in Peckville. ;)

    Interesting. Somehow the author of this advertisement forgot to delete the word "some" ... honest mistake, I suppose.

    At least the (un)lucky winner of the Pocono sweepstakes will have the pleasure of working alongside Mike Kuhns, one of the nicest guys in the biz.
