    The Villages Daily Sun, a fast-growing daily paper serving Central Florida, is looking for a sports-minded paginator who can edit and design reader-friendly sports pages as well as local, feature and special sections pages.

    The successful candidate must be attentive to detail, able to work well under deadline pressure, and be able to write snappy headlines and captions. Those applying for the position must have a working knowledge of grammar, spelling and Associated Press style.

    Minimum requirements: A bachelor's degree in Journalism or English or a comparable degree with a heavy journalism background. At least two years of experience as a copy editor, paginator or page designer for a weekly or daily newspaper. One year of experience working with Quark Xpress or Indesign. Applicants must be willing to work night and weekend shifts. The award-winning Villages Daily Sun is defying national trends of declining circulation numbers and downsizing of staff. The newspaper is rated as one of the country's top seven-day newspapers, according to recent figures released by the Audit Bureau of Circulations. We offer competitive pay, excellent benefits and access to a highly regarded school system.

    The Villages caters to a senior population, but also covers several surrounding counties. It is centrally located, with Orlando, Tampa, Daytona Beach and Gainesville all within 90 minutes. Please log onto careersinthevillages.com to print and complete an application,

    They may call themselves one of the country's top seven-day newspapers (cough, hack, cough), but if someone gets robbed in The Villages, the last place you'll hear about it is in the Villages Daily Sun.
  3. For anyone interested, there is a wealth of information on this place and similar positions there if you do a search on this site.
  4. I think that line in the description was referencing their growing circulation. And with them developing more tracts of nearby land, it looks like it'll keep going that way.

    Protip. If somebody wants a story about their grandchild eight states away, don't dismiss it out of hand.

    Fair enough. Lots of old people = lots of newspaper readers. And lots of voters, hence it's a regular stop on many campaign trails.
