A Times story in today's paper reports that, in addition to the 62 editorial jobs lost through buyout and layoff, about 100 people have left on the business side. Another 30 jobs were eliminated at Times affiliates such as the Recycler and Times Community News, where the two Inland Empire newspapers were closed yesterday. The Times staff had stood at 3,420, including 1,110 in editorial, at the start of the year.
