The Kansas City Star will drop two pages from their Sunday comic section to cut expenses.
Several changes in FYI and the Sunday comics take effect Sunday and Monday. We like some, and hope you do, too, and regret others.
Beginning Sunday, the comics section will lose two pages. Paper is a major cost at any newspaper, and The Star has been offsetting rising newsprint prices by cutting some pages. A page of Sunday comics is one of our most expensive because the full-color section is printed by an outside company at a premium price.

I could not find an email or phone number for the publisher, but his name is Mac Tully.
If you call or write in to protest, please remember to be kind and friendly.
