There is plenty of time for play, as we are surrounded by five world-class ski resorts, and 70 percent of our coverage area is National Forest land.


Guess there's no news in the forest, so the editor can play hooky whenever.

Here's what they want the editor to do if there's work to be done:
Quote:
The Summit Daily News, a 12,0000 circulation daily in beautiful Frisco, Colorado, is looking for an editor to lead a group of award-winning reporters and photographers. Our news editor works directly with the managing editor, handles most story assignments, and directs 6 reporters, 2 photographers, and a handful of freelancers. Our news editor gives first reads to news stories, and works closely with our talented copy desk chief to create a fair and dynamic daily news section. Quark and Photoshop skills are a must, as is an eye for what makes a great story. Our News Editor is also expected to keep our daily website updated and timely, as our online audience is a large part of our daily readership.

Maybe it's the European comma-cum-decimal-point and they're sticklers for precision.

Love to get outdoors during the day and work at night? Then this is the job for you. The Summit Daily News in Frisco, Colorado, is looking for a deadline-oriented copy editor to join our daily newsroom team. Quark and Photoshop skills are a must, as is knowledge of AP style. Our copy editors also design our pages, so a little creativity can go a long way. This is a fast-moving job, and multi-tasking is a must.


Not to pile on to the Summit Daily News ... but do plate tectonics work differently there?
