MORRIS COMBINES OPERATIONS IN MICHIGAN.

The owners of a daily newspaper and a commercial printing company in Michigan have announced that they plan to combine the operations of the two companies.

Morris Communications of Augusta, Ga., said the Holland Sentinel and Flashes Publishers had begun to merge their companies last week.

The 19,020-circulation daily and the publisher of the Flashes Shopping Guide will combine a variety of departments immediately and that eventually the business will have a common composing facility and classified call center.

The combined companies will be run by Sentinel Publisher Michael Hengel, who became publisher of the Sentinel in 2001. Stephen Kenemer, the Sentinel's operations manager, has been named operations manager for the combined businesses.

I can't predict where the culture shock will occur, but there will be culture shock as these two businesses become one. Nonetheless, this combination shows Morris' long-standing savviness about this business.
