• In other news, both the BANGOR DAILY NEWS and the PORTLAND PRESS HERALD announced SIGNIFICANT STAFF REDUCTIONS in the past week; 61 at the PPH (23 buyouts and 38 layoffs, nearly all among news-related staff) and unclear numbers at the BDN so far, though the paper itself reported management was looking for as many as 30 people to accept the carrot of voluntary buyout offers, with the stick of possible layoffs to follow. Departures have already begun. Best wishes to those leaving — and to the ones staying, who will continue the increasingly difficult struggle of keeping their papers interesting.
