    The Sun News (McClatchy Newspapers) has an opening for a designer who isn't afraid to tackle sports and news pages.
    The work schedule isn't set in stone, but it will be either three or four days of sports (fronts two or three times) and news the other day or two. Yes, just five days a week.
    The job will be posted on snd.org and journalism jobs in the next few days. And we're looking to hire ASAP.
    If interested, drop sports editor Shane Bowen an e-mail at sbowen@thesunnews.com with a link to a newspagedesigner web page if you have one. If you don't have one, let him know you're interested and put your materials in the mail:
    Shane Bowen
    Sports Editor
    The Sun News
    914 Frontage Road E.
    Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

    I'm working all weekend so send me an e-mail (kknapek@thesunnews.com) and I'll try to any questions as best I can.

    Oh, and if it matters, the temperature is supposed to be in the 60s all week!

    Not the same one. The paper got another designer opening when the SE was officially promoted. It was never filled.

    What's the quality of trim in the newsroom?

    Not sure. There's some tail down at the Boathouse, which isn't far from the Sun-News office.

    I don't know about the quality of the, uh, trim or, uh, tail, but the women to men ratio in the newsroom is like 5:1, FWIW. I visited there a few years ago and met two men. And one was in features, not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Nothing yet -- although they might have a couple people in mind after a first candidate (who interviewed in person) turned them down in lieu of an offer from a bigger paper.

    I'm not completely in the loop, but I know the design editor has been, or is about to, starting calling a few potential candidates.
    I'll update as more information becomes available.
