We are also home to the internationally-known Tour of the Gila, an annual bicycle race that brought Lance Armstrong to our tiny town two years in a row, an annual blues fest that draws more than 5,000 visitors from across the region, and a host of other arts-related events. You’ll work hard, but you’ll have fun doing it.

Journalism or related degree required. Send your resume and a cover letter telling us why you think you’d be a good fit for our paper and why you want to make Silver City your home. Put Reporter position in the subject line. Email:  Twitter (@SCSunNews)
