Press Herald Watch - Sister paper in Washington cuts back

Beyond the deep cuts the Seattle Times will have to make (as I discussed in this post earlier in the week), it appears the trickling down has begun: the Yakima Herald Republic, another Seattle Times-owned company (like the Press Herald, Morning Sentinel, and Kennebec Journal), is laying off five support workers people and leaving a reporter's job unfilled, according to its own report (with a hat-tip to Romenesko).

Any effects of the massive spending cuts on the Maine newspapers remain to be seen, but this is a sign that the entire Blethen portfolio may be taking a large budget hit, rather than just the Seattle Times itself.
