Allentown Call gets reorganized

We'd like it to get "organized" if you know what we mean, but the reorganizeation plan as outlined here will (surprise, surprise) reduce editorial costs. Included in the plan is the elimination of 10 positions: news editor, asst. copy chief/features, sports CE, features CE, special projects editor, librarian, page designer, sports reporter, opinion writer and a business editor.

Plans are to create 3 new ones "to help build the print and on-line audience" — a watchdog reporter, a lab tech and an on-line sports producer. (Sounds like night work for all and we'll bet at lower wage and benefits than the 10 eliminated.)

What happens to the work left behind by departing employees? Did it disappear?
