There may be more layoffs in other departments and at other papers. I'll update when and if I get more information.
*Update: The layoffs include photo editor Bernardo Alps and designer Mary Roy. An unfilled editorial position at the Pasadena Star-News was also eliminated.
**Update II: Here's the goodbye email from Bernardo Alps to his former colleagues (I deleted his contact information):
...wasn't planning it this way, but I am off in search of new adventures.
I want to thank all of you for the time we had together. You are a great group of people doing great work under difficult conditions. I enjoyed working with all of you and I learned from each of you. I hope you realize that I had to be a hardass to make things work smoothly. If I was hard on you sometimes, it in no way reflects how I feel about you personally.
Please stay in touch (and send any leads my way).
Now I'm off to make some lemonade...
