    So I see Millinocket (Great Northern Paper) mill made national headlines recently, with the reopening of the East Millinocket plant. It was purchased by an outfit based in Portsmouth, NH. Perhaps a indicator of better days ahead. :smile:

    Excerpt above reference:
    "Clouds that shrouded mighty Mount Katahdin on a still November morning gradually lifted above its mile-high summit as the day wore on, just as a pale of gloom is giving way to a glow of optimism in two Maine towns below.

    Paper-making, for generations the lifeblood and soul of Millinocket and East Millinocket, is back, and a closely related new industry knocks on the door. And mill workers and those who draw a living from one of Maine’s traditional industries say they finally have something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
    "

    For those who are geographically curious: Millinocket is in central Maine, 24mi SE of Katahdin and about the same latitude as Moncton, New Brunswick.

    I hope it works out for them. The price of oil has kicked everyone in the gut. The cost of paper has been rising for years.
