So as a compromise I am thinking about going the route of posting a half-time position in a higher classification so that the salary would be at least competitive. It will get full-time benefits on a pro-rated basis. But I am wondering if this strategy would be viable or not.

I definitely think it could work. But then, I just sent you my resume
off-list, so I might be biased. :)
