Catching up here

There's a lot of things going on and we're trying to filter some of the info we're getting. Info relevant to this blog seem to rehash news we've posted, linked or commented on, but here's a couple of catch-up items:

-- Tribune's sale of Stamford Advocate and Greenwich Time in Connecticut to MediaNews Group will include recognition of union contracts but all employees will be required to re-apply for their jobs. MediaNews also said it will eliminate by years' end the print and packaging departments which will leave 55 workers without jobs. MN's MO is to cluster, consolidate and cut.

-- We attended the California First Amendment Coalition's Free Speech & Open Government Coalition at USC last week, mainly because former, current (and perhaps future) Guild members were among the panelists. Though the conference was the Coalition's 12th annual, it was the first we have attended. It certainly won't be the last.
