    Re: Ax falling at Advertiser

    Heard a rumor that as many as 100 jobs may be cut at the tiser. Is it really that bad?

            Oh no... what will Jimmy Borges do for publicity?!
            Honestly. Something like 90% of Wayne Harada's columns mention Jimmy Borges. Maybe there's a man-crush there. Dunno.
            Seriously, it'd be a shame to lose Harada's column. Would they replace him with some rookie, or... ?

                With all due respect, I hope you aren't crossing your fingers and hoping that someone will lose their job and livelihood simply for your benefit.

                The image of a vulture circling a dying creature comes to mind. I know not why.

                  we advertise with both papers and midweek. MOst our dollars go to Hon Ad. It is like pulling teeth to get our rep there at Hon Ad to call me or answer my emails. Has been for over a year. You think they'd coddle a relationship.

                  I wish the Star had the pull the Hon Ad did as I'd funnel our dollars over there in a heartbeat.

                        I had heard that despite the flailing economy the amount of political ads out there were keeping both papers afloat. Then after the election the holidays kick in so the real pain shouldn't start until after the new year. If that's the case then I guess the Tiser is getting a head start on some projected cuts no?

                          I hear that investigative reporter Jim Dooley is taking the buyout.

                            I believe that is Leslie Wilcox ex-husband.

                              It's been quite some time since then, and other relationships. If we got into whose exes are whose, we'd have to start a whole new thread.

                                Wonder if Jim will work part time at the Bulletin like Ken K. does now.
