The note to the staff from Daily News editor Carolina Garcia doesn't make clear if this is downsizing, but it's being taken that way.

I'm saddened to report that we are losing two long-time dedicated journalists, Features Editor Sharyn Betz and Food Editor Natalie Haughton. Through the decades they have done an outstanding job. They're pros in every way and we thank them for their hard work and contributions to the Daily News. We will miss them. Sharyn's last day is Friday and Natalie leaves today.
