Lee closes 3 more Idaho papers

Three Idaho papers -- the North Side News in Jerome, the Gooding County Leader in Gooding and the Southern Idaho Press in Burley -- will stop publishing in two weeks, laying off 14 employees. Readers of those three papers can get zoned editions of the Times-News instead. (The Times-News is not adding to its staff.)

The last day for the Southern Idaho Press is Aug. 16. The last day for the North Side News and Gooding County Leader, both weeklies, will be Aug. 14.

In April, Lee sold the Wood River Journal in Hailey and closed two weeklies, the Lincoln County Journal in Shoshone and the Minidoka County News in Rupert.
