FROM THE EDITOR: Journal Features New Comics, Puzzles, Columns | Local

The Rapid City Journal has been the community leader for local news for 144 years, and it’s our responsibility to provide strong, compelling, diverse and trusted local journalism to you, our loyal readers and subscribers. Whether it’s news, sports, business, lifestyle or weather coverage, we take our role in the community extremely seriously when it comes to accurately reporting the news that matters to you. interest the most, because the Rapid City Journal is where your story lives.

As we continue to evolve as a digitally-focused, community-driven local news organization, we – like all of you – must constantly evaluate how we are investing our resources. More than ever, our investments must be firmly focused on pursuing the best possible local news coverage, every hour of every day.

With that in mind, you’ll notice that in today’s print edition, we bring you a new slate of comics, puzzles, advice content, and other features. The good news: you get access to legendary comics like Peanuts and Garfield, a crossword challenge from the Los Angeles Times, a thoughtful advice column in Amy Dickenson’s “Ask Amy,” and, of course, a daily horoscope. Plus, you’ll now find additional “funny page” comics exclusively on our E-edition platform, and you’ll also have access to nearly 500 comics, dozens of puzzles, and several new syndicated columnists on our website.

The new E-edition only comic pages are available starting today. And the rest of the hundreds of available digital-only comics, puzzles, and chronicles will soon be available on our website.

The Journal also makes some changes to page two that you’ll notice in today’s print edition. We’re keeping our popular “Your Two Cents” features and lottery number draws. The “Today in History” feature has been moved to our new tips and lifestyles page. One item you’ll notice is the removal of the “reader photo of the day”. Instead, you’ll see additional news and content in this space to better serve all of our readers.

We’re excited about the new range of feature content and hope you enjoy it. But we also recognize that many of you might no longer see a particular comic, puzzle, or advice columnist that you enjoyed.

We invite you to explore the comics, puzzles, and extra columns in our e-edition and on our website, and we know you’ll find some new gems there. We sincerely thank you, our readers, for supporting us in our continued commitment to investing in the people and tools that help bring you the best local journalism available today.
