Goodbye to one, one more open job.

Hey Everyone,

I'm about to run out the door for a quick little vacation, but I wanted to leave a few things with you before I do...

First of all, we should all bid a fond farewell and good luck to Les Jacobs of the Sports Department. Today's his last day before heading off to beautiful Brooklyn, where he'll take a job working in graphic design. He's been a good guy to know and a strong supporter of our little club, so while we'll miss him, it's good to hear he's on to bigger and better things. Best of luck, dude-- make sure you try the Gray's Papaya juice and watch out for those New Yorkers. They're tough customers, but hey, after the Daily News, you're ready for just about anything.

Secondly, there's another job posting to pass along (and thanks for the responses regarding the 10-day hold, I'm still exploring things, so more input is welcome). Sports has an opening for a copy and layout editor, who'll edit, write headlines, layout and pagination. 40 hours a week, including nights & weekends. College degree required, preferably in journalism, plus 1 year of editing with strong performance. Apply in writing to Jon Clifford by 5 p.m., October 10. No phone calls. Supply resume, samples of editing work, names, addresses and phone numbers of 3 most recent immediate supervisors.

This leaves three open jobs in sports-- they're recruiting for them, so if you know of someone looking for a gig, pass the word. Those folks are getting hammered back there 'til those slots get filled, so if anyone knows of a qualified candidate (or wants it themselves), go for it.

That's about it for now. To all of you who paid dues for Sept., I put them in the mail today. The rest of you, if you haven't mailed them already, I'll try and get some envelopes to you when I'm back in town, but feel free to send them in the meantime. Thanks for your help on that.

Ok, gotta hit the road-- if you need anything, I'll be in sporadic email contact by e-mail until Wednesday morning, then back in the city and available by phone (310)562-4315 for the rest of the week. Other than that, ask Kerry Kandel in metro or Vicki DiPaolo down at the union office (562)259-9430.
