Napa Valley Register lays off 2 journalists

The Napa Valley Register, a newspaper owned by Lee Enterprises, is cutting costs and laid off two people in its newsroom — photographer lianne Milton and copy editor Juan Curiel.

Lee, whose stock (LEE) was selling at 11.24 a year ago, is now a penny stock and has been laying off employees at its other papers. Lee’s Billings Gazette in Montana, for instance, announced Tuesday it dismissed four full-time and four part-timers.
