How great - hats off to the supervisors for landing this. The timber industry should see some improvements for sure.

I hope this is just the beginning of the active and aggressive industry chasing for George County. Does anybody know how well these jobs are going to pay? Hope this helps a lot of George Countians.

In the article it says 75 full time jobs 15.70 an hour average and about 10 that will pay approx. 80M per year - guess the other jobs will be part time. It will be interesting to see where all this timber comes from - I wonder if they can use pine. I may need to get a pellet stove.
