    One dull site...at a time where everything is supposed to be moving to the Web, couldn't people get a little more creative/colorful at the least...and I guess I'll save anyone else from pointing out that it says "a experienced" instead of "an"

    Can't say I've ever seen a web front without a photo ... and the lead story is about the "In the Know" column returning?


    Regardless, to answer the inevitable question, the circulation seems to be around 9,700 --- at least from two years ago (couldn't find updated numbers).

    So the wording for this makes it appear as if the Globe is finally hiring an assistant sports guy. Good thing but it should have occured to these nitwits a long time ago that you can't cover 20 high schools by yourself.

    Heard it's hell to work there. Apply at your own risk.

    I have info if anybody wants it. PM me.

    Also, the circ is down to about 6K now.

    If Garden City is the gateway to hell, this place is the red carpet.

    Let me get this straight. You critique this paper's Web site by saying it had no photos on the front page and the triumphant return of the "In The Know" column. Yet I have to find for myself the comedy gold that is the Tomorrow-in-the-Globe videos?

    Come on man, help a sister out.

    Dodge City. A hoot 'n' holler of a place to be stranded for 5 days.
