The TS story by John Driscoll says the Pulp mill won't start until at least August! This is not good news. I have heard that quite a few workers have already left the area, or have found local work and are not planning on coming back. And that is besides the workers in the re-training programs. Just doing a head count in Maintenance, I see less than 25% returning. I will guess that we will down nearly 40% in Operations. This will be a long, ugly start-up in August.
And I do not know of anytime in my life that all the local sawmills have taken this many lay-offs. This is affecting truck drivers and other vendors locally. We can't afford many more hits in Humboldt County.
