    The Cullman Times is looking for a well-rounded sports writer to fill an entry-level position. The Times, a six-day daily located in Cullman, Ala., covers 12 high schools in two counties and one junior college. We’re looking for an energetic reporter who’s able to juggle several different duties. Experience with Quark is preferred since some desk work is required. Applicants should send a resume, cover letter and their best clips to dpalmer@cullmantimes.com. No phone calls please.

    I believe this is an eight-man shop with two guys in sports. Cullman HS is pretty good in Class 5A, having just won baseball and tennis titles. The town was hit pretty hard in the recent tornadoes in the area.

    Cullman County is about 98 percent white, so if you get this job, get ready for a steady stream of coaches complaining that they "don't have the ath-a-letes" to compete with out-of-area teams.

    Oh, and Cullman County's dry.

    Other than that, it's not the worst place in the world, an hour from Birmingham and Huntsville and a little over two hours from Nashville ... assuming you ever get a day off.

    Actually, Cullman is wet now, so the alcohol is flowing.

    As for the sports, Cullman High is usually strong in football and the baseball program is one of the best in the state. The area also has has some strong girls basketball programs and Addison, in Winston County, has a strong football and volleyball programs in Class 1A.

    Wallace State-Hanceville is a top-tier junior college with athletic facilities that would put most small four-year schools to shame.

    Just to clarify, is this one of those deals where the city is now wet, but the county is still dry?

    Albert we can roll through town and make it wet, no matter what they say.

    You know, for grins.

    And juco athletics are no more statewide, on account of being broke.

    Unfortunately, the beloved Stockyard Steakhouse is no more. I remember stopping there when I was in college on my way to Nashville. Good times.

    Not entirely true... Wallace State hasn't cut any and has enough of on-going campus expansion that down the road, they want to try for four-year status.
    Oh, and Stan Veitch, formerly of several papers in north Alabama was named the SE.

    Stan, the SE, called me just to say he had gotten my application and would be reviewing it. Class.
