    Westchester just had major cuts a few months ago throughout the entire paper, and they're now moving their printing to NJ.

    Rumor has it that more cuts are looming.

    The apprehension with Gannett is understandable.

    But if you can get past that - or are looking, anyway - Joe McDonald is a top-notch man. Highly recommended.
