The Hays Daily News — Kansas' best mid-sized daily three of the past four years — is looking to fill two openings in our newsroom.

• Special sections editor: Successful candidates will be adept at InDesign, exceptionally organized, and creative with both design and story ideas. The special sections editor compiles and creates three regular magazines and an ample collection of special sections, as well as lends a hand on the daily when called upon. Experience with magazine-style formats preferred, but not required.

• An enterprising reporter with a nose for features, investigative reporting and spot news. We are looking for someone who considers "office hours" whenever the story occurs and the workplace wherever that story leads them. We are looking for someone handy with a camera or videocamera and with the ability to pick the enterprise story idea out of a meeting agenda or a feature out of a tweet. We are looking for someone who has never missed a deadline and never will. It's a tough job — but in the best place to work. Health reporting and InDesign experience helpful, but not required.

Hays, America, is a special place, boasting a strong local economy, a bustling cultural center, low crime, the best schools and the best Oktoberfest. The HDN is part of Harris Enterprises, a six-paper newspaper group with a Pulitzer to its credit. We offer exceptional benefits including top-notch health insurance, profit sharing and a generous 401(k) match. The HDN staff produces three regular glossy magazines — focusing on health, lifestyle and sports — that allow our reporters and photographers to shine, as well as a bevy of other niche products in both print and digital form.

To see if this is the opportunity for you, send a cover letter and resume to managing editor Ron Fields at no later than OCT. 1. A sampling of what we do every day is accessible at
