Printing was outsourced to the Florida Times-Union. At the time, Publisher Derek May said jobs would be lost, but did not say how many. “This will create a few jobs, and there are a few people the Times-Union is going to need,” May said in a story on the Record’s website. “There will be a net job reduction, but because of various factors I can’t say exactly how many. Decisions to eliminate jobs are extremely difficult to make.” Do you know more? Leave a comment or send me an email: newspaperlayoffs@gmail.com. Emailed tips are anonymous.

High Springs, Fla.
Owner: Ronald Dupont Jr.
Effective: Oct. 27, 2011

The weekly paper has closed; it had three employees. “We need $120,000 to survive until December of 2012,” editor and publisher Ronald Dupont Jr. wrote in the paper’s last edition. “If we could survive to then, we would have published through the very profitable months of election advertising. Even better, maybe the economy will have started changing by then and we would be back on our feet. That is my hope.” Dupont told The Gainesville Sun he expects to lose his home, which was tied to his purchase of the Herald in 2009.
