Uneventful Lee meeting

Sorry I wasn’t able to attend: Only one shareholder asked a question during the 25-minute Lee Enterprises annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday.

Ed Reelfs of Davenport asked [CEO Mary] Junck when the companylee expected to pay off the $1 billion debt it incurred as part of its 2005 acquisition of the Pulitzer Inc. newspaper chain.

Junck said while she could not publicly disclose when the company expected that debt to be paid, the company is making progress.
