News Press restructures, cuts staff

News-Press & Gazette Co. of St. Joseph is implementing a new strategic plan that has resulted in cutting staff at the News-Press and the community newspapers it publishes in Kansas and Missouri.
Among the positions eliminated was that of longtime reporter and opinion page editor Mark Sheehan. His last day with the paper was March 21.
The company offered severance packages to those who lost their jobs.
Executive editor Dennis Ellsworth has the added title editorial page editor.
Publisher David Bradley said the changes being made are an effort to reduce costs during a period of economic slowdown, declining advertising revenue and increased costs for newsprint and fuel.
