    Tom, I'll take your word on the $24k -- but it seems a bit high for a JRC paper, IMO.

    Damn you WHA for stealing my schtick during my sabbatical!!! :D

    This job is for someone who loves to write about local sports (working here will turn that love to hate in no time flat), thrives under pressure (pressure = getting Jelenic's kid in the paper) and is looking for a great place to live (you won't be able to afford it). We're a daily a.m. (duh) in a highly competitive newspaper market (where we get killed but make boatloads of money). We concentrate on local sports (because we're small time and we like to suck the spirit out of you), which in Saratoga runs the gamut from little league (lots and lots of Little League) to world-class thoroughbred racing (but mostly Little League). Position is primarily writing, with some (re: a lot of) editing and (re: a lot of) pagination. We're at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains (JRC rule no. 1: describe the surrounding area in picturesque language to sucker people in), midway between New York City and Montreal (you will not cover anything remotely close to these great cities). Surface mail (because we have dial up and it takes forever to download attachments) cover letter, resume (don't bother lying, it's not worth it), references and samples of layout and writing (our dirty secret: these, too, are optional) to Sports Editor Morgan Ryan, The Saratogian, 20 Lake Ave., Saratoga Springs 12866 or e-mail the material to mryan@saratogian.com (no phone number, damn, I guess Jelenic did get rid of the phones).
