LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas City Star is taking over printing the Lawrence Journal-World.

The Lawrence newspaper (http://is.gd/JuGLTc ) reports that its parent company, The World Company, announced Thursday that the current production plant will close in January, eliminating 33 jobs.

The World Company co-presidents, Dan Simons and Dolph C. Simons III, said several factors led to the change. One is that The Gannett Company has notified The World Company it will end its 30-year USA Today printing relationship with the Journal-World in January.

The statement says the changes aren't expected to affect the newspaper's delivery.

The World Company's four weekly newspapers _ The Shawnee Dispatch, Tonganoxie Mirror, Baldwin City Signal and the Chieftain of Basehor and Bonner Springs _ will be printed at The Examiner printing facility in Independence, Mo.
