    Does sending back corrections to the ad help your case when you apply?

    i know this is probably not relevant to this posting, but did sports editor George Geise retire?

    Yes, Geise retired recently. Mansch, a good guy, had been ASE for a long period of time.

    George Geise retired after 33 years as sports editor. Scott Mansch was promoted from assistant sports editor, a position he held for 20 years.

    I love how they talk about grammar and typos in the ad, but yet the ad is not perfect either...

    Great Falls has long been known as being one of the best, if not the best, and biggest (all-encompassing) preps section in the state. They do a great job up there and are very nice, personable guys. The biggest thing I'd say they have not looked into is a full-fledged multi-media and social media presence.
