Dayton-based Standard Register is purchasing another Dayton company, WorkflowOne, in a deal worth $218 million.

Standard Register says it expects to achieve $1 billion in annual revenue and $40 million in annual savings thanks to the deal. A release says WorkFlowOne will initially operate as a subsidiary with its CEO staying on in an advisory role.

The combined company has 4000 employees, including more than 900 in Dayton.


One of Dayton's biggest arts organizations is canceling its upcoming season. Cityfolk says several years of financial challenges led to the decision to forgo the 2013-2014 season and the 2014 festival.

The organization says low attendance at this year's festival, and declining ticket sales and sponsorships were also factors. Cityfolk is pulling out of a partnership deal with the Dayton Art Institute as well.

Three Dayton-area newspapers are ceasing publication.

North Carolina-based Civitas Media says it is shutting down the Springboro Sun, the Kettering-Oakwood Times, and the Centerville-Washington Township Times.

The company's CEO Michael Bush says Civitas is focused on serving rural communities and these three papers don't fit that business model. It's also shutting down five papers in North Carolina.

A news release says affected employees are being offered positions elsewhere in the company.

Federal officials investigating Saturday’s plane crash at the Dayton Air Show say it may take up to a year before the cause of the crash can be determined.

An initial coroner’s report say that 44-year-old wing-walker Jane Wicker and the plane’s pilot, 64-year-old Charlie Schwenker, died of blunt force trauma.

The National Transportation Safety Board expects to release an initial report later this week. The NTSB is also requesting anyone with video or pictures of the crash to submit them to air show officials to help with the investigation.
