We’re hearing rumors that The Register-Guard will be announcing another round of layoffs in Tuesday morning’s paper (June 9). None of our sources would go on the record, but it’s clear that today (Monday) was a bad day at the daily.

We hope the cuts, if they happen, are not deep. Eugene needs a strong daily paper.

The Register-Guard cut the equivalent of 35 full-time positions Monday in what Publisher Tony Baker said was a painful step necessitated by the continuing recession. It is a scenario, he said, that is playing out at newspapers across the country.

Some of the cuts were of positions that are currently unfilled, or came from trimming hours, not positions.

All told, 21 people, including 13 full-time workers and eight part-time employees, were laid off — which amounts to about 7 percent of the company’s actual work force. The elimination of positions, including those that were currently open, occurred in all operating departments, Chief Operating Officer David Pero said.

I bet it will not be news.......................

Prediction: EW will ignore the City Club discussion this Friday because EW does not support the proposal that will be discussed. If it were a "climate crisis" related program I am sure you would examine it in great detail. This is not meant as a insult....just as a prediction about the murky politics of what is and is not considered "news".

Goodbye R.G. (Regular Garbage)

For the second time in a month the RG is ordering us what to do about the ORI development situation. Oversimplification, inaction and editorial activism will continue to shrink the dying RG.
