The paper will resume a standalone business section four days a week, beginning Thursday - and it'll be renamed "Business" from the current "Marketplace."

Some production changes will allow Business to be its own section Thursday through Sunday (those are the paper's biggest advertising days). Business sections around the nation have been decimated in the last year or two because of the economic downturn - as well as the decision to eliminate most stock tables - so this move, as one staffer puts it, represents a small victory. Here's the item announcing the change.
