The Northern Virginia Daily in Strasburg, Va. (Northern Shenandoah Valley), which is down to 4 reporters and 1 photographer, now finds itself needing to line up four people to shoot local high school graduations on Saturday since they are all at the same time. An editor posted it on her own Facebook page. …

Ogden took over the paper last March [2012]; it was a family owned shop for nearly 80 years. They let one photographer go and did not replace the first two reporters that left shortly after the takeover.
