Since ownership of Kansas.com passed from Knight Ridder to McClatchy Co. last summer, much control of the Web site has been returned to us here in Wichita. That’s mostly a good thing, and it will allow us to better customize the site for you. However, among the drawbacks of this shift in control is a shift in costs. One big cost we were facing was the bill for all the comics and games we have carried. Given the relatively low usage of those features, it just didn’t make sense for us to pay to keep everything. We chose to maintain the two most popular features â€” the crossword and sudoku â€” and let the others lapse.
I apologize to those of you who’d developed a habit of using some of those features, but I hope you understand the situation we found ourselves in.
