    The Warwick Beacon is seeking a full-time sports reporter to help cover the most exciting high-school sports scene in the state. The Beacon is published twice a week and is responsible for covering six area high schools. In the last year, we've covered seven state championship teams. We are looking for a reporter with a love for sports and strong writing skills. Knowledge of pagination and digital photography is a plus. Night and some weekend work is required. Those interested should send resumes and clips to sports editor William Geoghegan at The Warwick Beacon, 1944 Warwick Ave., Warwick, RI 02889 or e-mail williamg@warwickonline.com.

    This is my hometown, so if anyone is crazy enough to NOT run from $15-20k, PM me and I can tell you about Warwick.

    $15,000 a year for a full-time position? That's insane.

    William's good people and a great writer. Beat me for columnist two years back, preventing a sweep and my ego from growing.
    I wouldn't call the area the most exciting on the high school sports scene in RI (southern half of the state bias there), but it's pretty good.
    The guys have done a good job putting out a great product despite being handcuffed by a lot of stupidity they have no say over.

    Despite an absolutely ATROCIOUS layout template (the bottom HALF of their front page is an ad in addition to what appears to be a mandated weekly two column-wide sponsored 'Athlete of the Week' section that leaves them with all of four columns of room to work with), this is, by far, the best sports section in the state that I don't currently work for. :)

    Every week my coworker and I compare our section to the rest of the local rags and, sure, we have a huge ego but even we admit that if these guys had the freedom to do their own thing, they'd be lethal.

    It's a great opportunity for someone. Too bad the pay is shit or I'd consider hopping over there in a heartbeat.

    Oh, and by the way, the person who "wins" this job will cover a ton of strong teams but be prepared to also have to shoot with rinky dink digital cameras.

    I made $14.5 at my first post-collegiate job.

    Of course, a nice apartment as $250 per month, gas was 85 cents per gallon and a car costs less than $10,000. Ah, the good ole days!

    It's not that great of an opportunity if the bottom end of the pay range is less than minimum wage.
