The Keith County News, Ogallala, Nebraska, is seeking a full-time reporter or editor to cover a variety of topics in the area.

Job involves writing, page design, news and feature writing, and photography. This is a key position that will require skill, commitment and dedication.

We are a family owned newspaper so if you tired of all the corporate edicts, we may be right for you. Although a position that must be filled, we will wait for the right person to hire.

We publish twice a week, Mondays and Wednesdays, and while all at the News work hard, we don’t expect you to work all the time.

When you’re done, there are two 18-hole golf courses, wide-open spaces and welcoming residents. Just 10 miles north of Ogallala is Lake McConaughy, the largest lake in Nebraska. Lake Mac is Rocky Mountain runoff fed, providing clear blue waters to fishermen, boaters and beach enthusiasts. The lake has 105 miles of white sandy beaches, and walleye and trout fisheries that are the best in the High Plains. Last year, Lake Mac hosted almost 2 million visitors and is one of the leading tourist attractions in Nebraska.

The community recently completed a new elementary and middle school and a ribbon cutting for a new library is just months away. The community also features and outdoor pool and an indoor pool, which is part of a recreation center that rivals cities of much larger size.

While rural living will save you large sums of money on living expenses, big city offerings aren’t far away. Denver, Colorado, is three hours to the west, while North Platte is an hour to the east and Lincoln and Omaha are just four hours away.

Take a look at the amenities and this community may be the place for you.
