Columbus, Ga., newspaper to eliminate 20 positions

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer in Georgia says it is eliminating 20 positions.

It's the third time in less than a year the newspaper has cut its work force.

Publisher Valerie Canepa says 13 of the 20 cut positions are already vacant. She says there will be seven layoffs.

The cuts are part of restructuring by parent company, McClatchy Co., which announced earlier this month it is slashing its work force by 1,600, or 15 percent.
