Staff report

We have received a number of comments from readers about some one-section weekday papers and two-section Sunday papers. They didn't like them, and we didn't either. Many have asked if we are doing things this way to cut costs. Fair question, and the answer is no.

Some readers will recall a day late last year when we produced a very strangely configured newspaper just to get it out the door amid mechanical problems. The problem, as we reported at that time, was with a device on our press known as an upper former board. We have continued to work on that problem, replacing a gearbox, rollers and related items, and re-setting the board to factory specifications. But we are still having problems and that led us to produce the aforementioned offending newspaper configurations.

We hope we are done with that. We believe we have workarounds, which while complicated and a little more costly to run, should allow us to avoid the less-desirable formats going forward. We continue to work with outside experts on a permanent solution, and appreciate your patience.
