    Sun, sand, surf and one of the best sports departments of its size in the nation -- the Santa Cruz Sentinel has almost everything. All that is missing is a copy editor and designer who can make its stories, pages and even website as captivating as its vistas.
    The ideal candidate for this part-time position has two or more years of newspaper design experience, preferably using InDesign, and is able to edit for content and grammar. The position will also entail some writing, mostly of capsules from coaches' and community members’ calls and emails.
    The Sentinel is a 23,000-circulation daily paper with a four-person sports staff that has consistently placed in the APSE top 10 for writing and design. We cover 13 high schools, two colleges and a myriad of other pro and recreational sports in and around the Monterey Bay and greater San Francisco Bay Area. Weekend and night shifts are required. Web, video and social media skills are a plus. Interpersonal skills and drive are imperative.
    To apply, send resume, writing and layout clips and references by Dec. 9 to: Sports Department, Santa Cruz Sentinel, 1800 Green Hills Road, Suite 210, Scotts Valley, CA 95066 or email sports@santacruzsentinel.com.

    Any paper that needs to go national for a part-time opening has problems.

    Not necessarily. One never knows who might read these boards. Might be someone right in their own backyard.

    They don't have a spot in the paper then to promote this opening? If it's someone in their backyard, they should be reading said paper if they are looking for a job. Just sayin'
