McClatchy's Island Packet looking for a business writer

Via Romenesko:
The Island Packet, a McClatchy Co. newspaper, is seeking a business writer.

The Packet serves Hilton Head Island, S.C., the mainland own of Bluffton and the surrounding community. Our market is a high-growth area in South Carolina's Lowcountry, a region that's rich both culturally and environmentally. Our circulation is about 20,000 and growing.

The Packet's business coverage focuses on tourism, real estate development, resort businesses, as well as employment and immigration issues. Like other McClatchy newspapers, The Packet has high reporting, writing and editing standards.

We consistently win awards in state and regional — and sometimes national — newspaper competitions. We were named by Editor & Publisher as one of 10 newspapers in the country that "Do it Right" in 2004. We have a well-deserved reputation for producing significant
investigative and enterprise reporting that brings about change.

Salary not listed. (Couldn't help but note the claim in paragraph 2 -- our circulation is 20,000 strong "and growing." Can anybody verify that claim??)
