Lee Enterprises Inc., a Davenport-based media company that owns five Iowa newspapers among its 50 operations, reported net earnings of $1.4 million, or 3 cents per share, for the first quarter of 2014, compared with a loss of nearly $6 million, or 12 cents per share, for the year-ago quarter. Mary Junck, chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement that the company continues to reduce its cash costs and benefited from refinancing its debt earlier this year with a lower interest rates and longer time to pay off the debt.
