Gannett cuts jobs, but won’t say how many

Gannett (the company that owns the Courier-Post in Cherry Hill) said Friday that it is eliminating an unspecified number of jobs in its newspaper division.

Jeremy Gaines, a spokesman for the McLean, Va.-based company declined to say where the cuts are taking place.

[Among the newspapers making the most cuts is the Asbury Park Press.]


From Associated Press:


An operator of TGI Fridays restaurants in New Jersey has agreed to pay a $500,000 fine for serving customers cheap booze when they paid for top shelf.

Acting Attorney General John Hoffman said last week that the fine levied against Livingston-based Briad Group, as a result of an investigation dubbed Operation Swill, should send a message to every bar and restaurant in the state that customers should always get what they pay for.

New Jersey is a state of contrasts, with pockets of poverty and areas of wealth. Save for one very small municipality in Camden County, which is the wealthiest, all of the other communities with the highest estimated median household incomes averaged for the period 2007-2011 were in the north, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Eleanor Kelly and Patty Tartaglia-Passio knew in advance that Democratic gubernatorial candidate Barbara Buono would stop by the Phily Diner in Runnemede Sunday morning.

That’s why the two Borough Council members adorned the wall of their booth with two “Buono for Governor” posters.
