    but no layoffs *** why am I tempted to add "yet?"

    " The Oregonian newspaper is closing three metro bureaus and merging the staffs into three other bureaus.

    Fred Stickel, publisher of Oregon's largest daily newspaper, said the staff of the bureaus in Gresham, Tigard and Vancouver, Wash., will move to the south bureau in Oregon City, the west bureau in Southwest Portland and the Multnomah County bureau in Portland.

    Stickel on Monday confirmed the Gresham bureau staff will move to the Multnomah County bureau, but said details for the other bureaus are still being worked out.

    Stickel said there would be no layoffs of staff as a result of the consolidation of the bureaus and that coverage of Gresham, Tigard and Vancouver, Wash., will not be affected.

    He also said the weekly Thursday newspapers for the cities losing the bureaus will still be published."

    These guys are already losing readership in the suburbs ... can't see this as being too helpful in at least holding on to the ones they've still got.

    Of course these guys can probably afford to lose a few readers, in the eyes of the glass office types. They are the biggest around, after all.

    A great paper, though. One hopes they don't cut too deep.
