    Thomasville as long been a hotbed for athletic talent. If you look at many professional rosters, finding a root in a South Georgia community isn't uncommon.

    Really an excellent place to cover high school football. Thomas County Central and Thomasville are big-time programs that are almost always in state contention. It's a community that really supports the teams too. While the city may be off the beaten path (it's a good, long way from I-75), it's just down the road from Tallahassee, even if it's a bit of a backroad highway. You can be there in 45-60 minutes, from what I'm told. And, from what I understand, the paper does a pretty good job. Not a bad job at all for somebody young, I don't think.

    Standard CNHI warnings apply.

    And you're not too far from Tallahassee. The Florida State football team usually stays in T-ville prioir to home games. (At least they used to.)

    That's pretty much why I say for someone young. Other than that, it's a good gig.

    CNHI is not the same thing as a good gig.

    Right now 2much, they're handling people a helluva lot better than many other chains.
  12. Who's leaving-Clint or Jamie-anyone know? CNHI has cut a ton of people recently. Both Clint and Jamie are good to work with.
