Job Postings

Hey Guys,

I've got a bunch of important stuff to share, but first, let me get these
out there-- a bunch of jobs just opened up, so spread the word so we can get
'em filled quickly and take the strain off the rest of us. If you know of
good people to fill these various spots, the paper definitely needs their
help-- if they have any questions about what it's like here and what the
contract holds, feel free to give them my email. The window is short on
these (there was a screw-up getting them to me, then I've been tied up and
unable to pass them along, but hopefully, these will find their way to
deserving candidates)

Thanks,
Brent
