Tip: Mountain Home printing shifts; 18 jobs cut

Effective Nov. 10, a reader tells me, The Baxter Bulletin in Mountain Home, Ark., is moving its printing 116 miles northwest, to Springfield, Mo., home of the News-Leader. The 18 jobs disappear when the press shuts down in Mountain Home.

In cases like this, I always wonder about the impact on final deadlines for the newsroom, advertising, and everyone else down the line. Springfield is one of two cities (Indianapolis is the other) that are now growing regional hubs for consolidating jobs in finance, production and other key areas.
