Question:

Why was the change to the tab size made?

Elvyn Jones:

There were some financial considerations, but surveys have shown readers like the small size, which is easier to hold and navigate.

Question: Will there be content changes with the new format?

Elvyn J. Jones:
The format affords the staff to continue the same coverage. In addition, several features have been added. Those include a 5 questions feature in which we quiz a newsmaker in the community about a current topic, a Neighbors feature that introduces readers to a community member, Points of view on the editorial page in which resident respond to questions of community interest and Our Town, a weekly picture photo package.
