    They've been struggling lately with their staff and they really need another person in there. Great paper, decent area in the PNW. A little bit of a false advertisement to call it a sports writer gig when it's mostly desk work...

    PM me for more info.

    Come on now, it's not the shittiest part of the NW, that would belong to Burns, Ore. Seriously, though, the Tri Cities are located in a decent area if you can handle some road trips. It is central to Boise, Spokane, Portland and Seattle.
