News and quick-hit commentary from around mid-Michigan ... from the Morning Sun.

Where's my paper?

Wednesday night's intense lightning storm that crossed mid-Michigan knocked out electric service to nearly 13,000 Consumers Energy customers in central Michigan, including the Morning Sun.
The Sun's presses are powered by electricity, so they didn't work. The newspaper still had to be published.
Backup generators provided enough power to allow the newspaper's composing crew to send electronic files of all the pages to our sister newspaper, The Oakland Press in Pontiac, to be printed. The entire press run was trucked back to central Michigan early Thursday, and distribution began at mid-morning.
The staff and management of the Morning Sun thanks all the customers for their understanding.
It was a heck of a storm, wasn't it?
