    Hopefully you lack the sense of smell, otherwise you won't enjoy living in Everett.

    What, from Boeing?

    Is this a full traveling beat, considering it's only a 50K? Do they travel with the Seattle pro teams, too?

    You're right, I was thinking of Tacoma.

    I never liked Everett, but then again I tried not to go north of Seattle whenever possible.

    Salary requirements? I'm not applying for this gig, but how would you go about addressing that?

    FWIW, it's owned by WaPo. You could do far worse.

    I'd be curious if the Herald will move more into the Seattle area with the King County Urinal closing and the Seattle PI to follow suit this summer.
    Suburban papers will have to fill the void left by the PI closing, won't they?

    Yeah, does anyone out there know if they travel...at all? And what's up with the auto racing? UW and auto racing as the main focus — kind of odd. Stated pay issue is also weird. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. ;)

    Travel in football, no other college sports. Go to spring training with Mariners, travel with Seahawks.

    I'm not so sure the P-I is going to close anytime soon. Plus the Herald would be well served focusing on its core in Snohomish County, which is a major target of The Seattle Times. If they were to look elsewhere it would be the northern east side of Lake Washington (Kirkland, Woodinville, etc.)

    The auto racing is likely to fill time in the spring and summer. The Evergreen Speedway is in Monroe. It's minor league racing (whatever is taking the place of the NASCAR Northwest Tour, NASCAR weekly series, etc.).

    Perhaps not, but my sources that work there said they were told to start looking for jobs this summer. I hope it never closes, but I doubt that will happen.
