Arizona Daily Star reader representative Debbie Kornmiller wrote in Sunday’s paper about the changes to the paper’s business section that includes cutting its stock listings.

Kornmiller wrote, “Here’s what readers can expect:

â—? The daily market report will be consolidated into one page Tuesdays through Fridays. It will include a summary of the previous day’s activity, a preview of the day’s events and a combined stock table featuring hundreds of stocks tracked by readers.

 â—? The Saturday report will be the same as weekdays, but with a full-page list of readers’ mutual funds.

â—? The columnist lineup will change. Chuck Jaffe’s mutual-fund column moves from Saturdays to Fridays. Kenneth Harney’s real-estate column switches from Sundays in At Home to Saturdays in Business. Figuratively Speaking, Fridays in Business, has been discontinued.

â—? The Business front page will include two new indicators: the futures price of oil and copper. Oil because it underlies so much of our economy and everyday life, and copper because it is a regionally important commodity, mined around Tucson, Southern Arizona and northern Sonora.

â—? Business’ Web site, (www.azstarnet.com/business) will be updated throughout the day. Its Clocking In blog will be updated daily, and a daily e-newsletter is planned.

â—? A half-page feature on autos, called Wheels, will run every Saturday.”
