Newsroom staffers offered valet work

Employees in the newsroom will be getting an opportunity to work outside, but only if they choose to take up the offer of Ed Lehman, the publisher of the Longmont, Colorado Times-Call to be valets at a private Christmas party for Lehman's family.

Ed Lehman and his wife, as well as Ed Lehman's son, Dean Lehman, who is the paper's editor and president, say "valets are needed because many of the guests are elderly and may need a little extra help." Staffers will receive the same rate of pay for their valet work as they do at their day jobs.

So far "at least two employees" have taken Lehman up on his offer.

With thanks to Romenesko.
