They will be filing for bankruptcy very soon, if not sooner. Did you know that their reporters have not seen pay raises in over three plus years?

Donna Donovan needs to go to.

The Utica OD reporters and their so called EDITOR should be happy that they get any pay for the crap that they report. Act like REAL reporters and earn what you do get!!

THE OD is a disgrace!

The OD is not affiliated with Gannet News Service, It was sold to GateHouse Media, Inc. a year or more ago.

William Newell,

You are correct, however, there is trouble on the horizon with the Utica O.D. There will be more lay-offs and the newspaper will go down in flames only to be replaced by a wider type of news reporting.

It is to, to , bad that the O.D. never ramped up their reporting like the good-old days?

The OD needs to go back to what they use to be very good at - many years ago -i.e. Investigative Reporting. God only knows this City has enough corruption going on that could give a GOOD reporter enough material to keep them busy for the next 10 years.

The OD currently is a waste - made up of fillers and advertisements! No real news at all.

The parent company, Gatehouse, has been in financial difficulties for a couple of years now. Thus far, that has had a minor impact on the OD.However, that cannot last forever.

The OD has let so many quality employees go over the years. You think they would have wanted to keep those key employees. Let's chalk some of that up to pride and pride goes before a fall unfortunately. Bring back those key employees like Tom Stubley and company and get rid of al the current executives. I guarantee you the paper would turn around in an instant.

The paper already shot itself in the foot with one of its pretty recent layoffs and the higherups regret it. Trust me I've heard them. I won't say a name bc I don't want to start anything but letting this person go has and will continue to bite the paper in the butt and the wallet-even more in the future.

if you did not get fired and were making good money then they would just lay you off. the od has no respect for their employees.
