McClatchy Ad Revenues / Hiking Sacramento / Trombone Shorty

McClatchy Ad Revenues  There's more bad financial news today at one of Sacramento's biggest companies. The McClatchy Co. reported advertising revenues down nearly 15 percent last month compared to April 2007. Company finances have been heading south for a couple of years now with falling readership and ad revenues at most McClatchy newspapers, including the flagship Sacramento Bee. How long can the company keep losing revenue and what impact will this have on the way the company's readers get their news.
