Not to be outdone

In a announcement curiously timed with similar bad news coming from the Macon Telegraph, Community Newspaper Holdings Inc. announced today that all employees will be furloughed for five days between April 1 and June 30.
Union-Recorder Publisher Keith Barlow told employees that furloughs were being enacted to keep from having to lay employees off.
While not a disclosure of financial insolvency about the paper itself, Barlow stressed that the furloughs are a sign of times in an economy that has battered the City of Milledgeville.
Milledgeville has seen the closing of two major manufacturers in the last three months resulting in about 850 layoffs.
