Island Packet/Beaufort Gazette to cut staff 11 percent
Well, there you have it. People are in reasonably good spirits all things considered, but everyone who was let go will continue on for another three weeks, so it doesn't feel like anything has changed yet. Except for me that is - the Ad Designer manager gave her notice last week, so they've put me in charge of those folks in addition to my Pre-Press/IT responsibilities. My first task was to hire a part-time Ad Designer, who started today - he himself was laid off from Bluffton Today last month, so here's hoping their loss will be our incredible gain.
