Historic Preservation Division Vacancy - HPD Offices, Stockbridge, Georgia
R. Joe Brandon
Note from R. Joe: When I first thought up ShovelBums I was avoiding writing a paper for Environmental Archaeology and around 4AM and I sent the announcement about my new jobs list out to my peers at Uark on a loosely organized mailing list called Pocket_Gophers asking them to help spread the word. At some point a few hours later the first non "Pocket_Gopher" joined the list, Rick Blatchley, who had heard about ShovelBums from my good friend, the exceptional Dr. Rachel Black. It is nice to see after decades, that ShovelBums is still able to provide a small service to one of the very first members like Rachel (she was the 1st, 2nd or 3rd to join). ShovelBums only ever grew, and continues to grow, because of the word of mouth between peers. So to Rachel, and all of you, thank you for helping ShovelBums grow and be useful to our community.
PS In lieu of buying me a drink if you ever got a job through ShovelBums and you know Dr. Black, you can buy her a drink and that counts as our agreement being honored. ;-)
