    From Journalismjobs.com and this has been around before.

    The Times-Herald, a daily in the San Francisco Bay Area community of Vallejo, is seeking a sports writer/paginator who will be an integral part of our quasi universal desk. Candidates would be involved in prep coverage in Solano and Napa counties and some pro coverage (A’s, Giants, 49ers, Raiders), as well as the opportunity to write a weekly column. This position’s focus will be as a member of a sports and production team additionally helping the copy desk with wire or feature pages. Experience with Baseview, Quark and the web is a plus, but not a requirement. Please submit a resume, a brief cover letter of why you would be interested in this position, your best writing samples and any salary requirements to: Ted Vollmer, Editor, Times-Herald, 440 Curtola Parkway, Vallejo, CA 94590, or e-mail tscjnews@thnewsnet.com

    DO NOT take this job. That applies to any and everyone. This is a MediaNews rag, and the whole Northern California stretch of papers they have, are having continuous cutbacks and layoffs.....I was laid off by two MNG papers within one year. DO NOT take this job!

    So, you're saying it would be a great idea for someone to move cross country for this? Maybe even buy a house and invest in the local infrastructure?

    That probably has a lot more to do with the people than the fact that they spent some time in Vallejo

    That job description reads like an invitation for a bait and switch.
