    ... from JJ.com/$20,000-$25,000 year.

    FWIW, this was my first paper many moons ago. Im sure it's changed quite a bit, but it's 35 miles north of the Texas border on I-35. Dallas two hours away for civilization.

    And it's not just the salary. I vowed never to visit Ardmore again after an infuriating experience kept me at the McDonald's for an hour. Not the quick bite I was anticipating.

    Luckily, I reneged and years later made several trips to the Two Frogs Grill. Great little spot, and very surreal watching some of the best blues musicians going play a city of 25,000 just after playing sold-out European tours. Not sure if they're still booking the same types of acts they were, but they used to get some names coming through there.

    Salary is not good but that's a cool name for a newspaper.
