    This paper is located in Southern California. Magic Mountain is here as well as good high school football, JC (College of the Canyons), The Master's College and it is close to Los Angeles.

    Just curious, what colleges does this paper cover?

    Also, any idea about circ size, etc?

    It's a small paper, likely in the 10,000 range. I should have put that with my other comments. This is likely an entry-level position. I don't work there, I just know about the paper. Of course, if someone asks former Dodgers outfielder Shawn Green about The Signal, he might have something to say about the SIZE of the paper.

    I may be biased as a California native, but Magic Mountain is the best amusement park in the country and was also where they filmed the first National Lampoon's Vacation...

    Stay away from this place. You're 40 miles from the Daily News, 60 miles from the LA Times and no one will notice you unless you write a story about Shawn Green's weiner.

    Lived in Santa Clarita for three years, but didnt work for the Signal. Not too bad of a place to live as far as suburbs go. Gets crazy hot in the summer, many 95 plus days, but it is great at night. Edge of the desert, mountain ranges, beautiful sunsets. Not much in the way of entertainment beyond MM. But you can get to downtown, hollywood or the beaches in 35-45 minutes when it is not rush hour.

    And yes I work for the SC chamber of commerce.

    Magic Mountain attracts a questionable element and is doing so well that it is on the market to become a housing development. Traffic is bad in rush hour, and it's true that your stuff at the Signal would not be read by anyone more than five miles from Revolution.

    Does this mean Marty Moose likes the Signal newspaper?

    Good question. That was one of the most bizarre things I have ever read.
