We didn't have enough to do, so we decided to launch a new site on the same day the trial of Victoria's police chief started.

Just kidding about not having enough to do. We scheduled this launch many months ago after we launched our former content management system was going out of business. We searched for the best system available, which was built by the award-winning Lawrence (Kan.) Journal-World on the Django platform. If you ask me more about the technical aspects of the system, I'll get in over my head quickly, but our Web gurus are excited about all the capabilities of our new system.

They even surprised us by managing to transfer article comments from to the two different systems that we had used. Originally, they didn't think this was technically possible.

Most of the comments so far seem to be about people having a hard time finding what they're looking for. We'll keep pointing you in the right direction until this site becomes second nature to you. For those new to the site, we think finding what you're looking for will be easier. For starters, our search is much more robust than before. When in doubt, try a search.
