The Journal Times laid off members of its financial services department, according to sources.
Lee Enterprises, the JT's parent company, has consolidated its billing department in La Crosse. That allowed Racine's newspaper to eliminate accounting positions. It also means bills for ads in the JT will be sent from La Crosse.
The somewhat good news is Lee seems to be trying to protect newsroom jobs throughout the state by consolidating its accounting departments. The bad news is they cut a few more jobs in the heart of a tough economy.
It'll be interesting to see if the paper writes anything about the changes.
