    That sucks if true. I always enjoyed reading her articles. She seems like she has quite a career ahead of her.

    42-53 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Well, I guess we at least know she's headed. Didn't she used to rip Lubbock as the worst/one of the worst Big 12 towns????

    Maybe, but she's probably getting paid way better down there.

    That is sad news to hear. I wish it was Bobby La Gesse leaving town.

    That stinks, I thought she did a great job. The Lubbock Avalanche Journal has a circulation of about 60k, while The Ames Tribune must be around 10k. More $$$ and one step closer to a job in Chicago.

    Re: Courtney Linehan leaving Ames Tribune?

    I did not enjoy reading her articles at all. It seemed like each one started with some cliche lead in about "the avereage so and so". It sounded like she got hired and just hired people she knew from IL and got rid of the already established people like Jeff Stell. Losing Stell as a very knowledgeable writer about AHS athletics, right in the middle of the boys state championship season was a huge mistake, but then again part of a shrinking industry.
