Rocky Mountain News environment writer Jerd Smith turns in her laptop to editor Phill Casaus on their last day of work on February 27, 2009 in Denver, Colorado. Today's edition was the last for the nearly 150-year-old daily, Colorado's oldest newspaper. Parent company E.W. Scripps Co. announced yesterday that the paper would close after efforts to find a buyer failed. Smith was one of some 200 staffers to lose their jobs.
