Ed Gamble, a widely-syndicated editorial cartoonist who was in the middle of his 25th year as the staff cartoonist for the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville, was let go by the paper in a staff-cutting measure. Gamble, who had already been working part-time for the paper in addition to his syndication through King Features, was one of 22 staffers let go. Gamble comes from a newspaper family and is one of the few cartoonists of whom I'm aware with a degree in political science. As part of his severance package, Gamble was to receive a week's pay for each year worked at the publication. The Times-Union is owned by Morris Publishing Group. A series of Gamble's cartoons can be accessed here.
