All the executives associated with the paper mill and the development organizations are deluded and blowing smoke up each others. This paper mill is antiquated and the infrastructure is non existent or crumbling. I knew and worked for Henry Parnas and saw the handwriting on the wall in the 70's. Small paper mills are not economically viable. Even the large mills are shutting down. With every kindle or Ipad sold the paper media is prosaic. Digital media is the future. Paper is a thing of the past. This mill is not served by any viable rail line and will go the way of Benson Mines. Wake up people it is not the 1960's any more. No one is sadder than I. I interned at Newton Falls and Benson Mines in the 1970's. Small operations such as these in dying industries are doomed. It is NOT the same America we grew up in. The town of Newton Falls and the Newton Falls Hotel belong to the past. So do I. Sadly. Many great summers swimming in the Oswagochi and Black Rivers. I will take my fond memories with me. God Bless the survivors of Newton Falls. They are a hardy breed.
