Now that the easy part is done,the real challenge is yet to come--Marketing the pulp above the production costs.

The Surfriders were and are right about the water problems. In addition, again, I hope we don't have to go back to the days when, because of Louisiana Pacific, and Crown Simpson made Eureka stink.

Hats off to the people who made this possible! Let's get back to work?

A litte note about lousy-ana pacific, they would pimp their own mom for a buck! They are one of the original rape-n-run companies in this county.

If you look at the home of the purchaser, one would wonder if a tribe wasn't behind the money. If thats the case, they would have deeeeeep pockets as you gringos like throwing your money away at the casinos.

The only important opinion posted. High American wages equals the business will fail. We (Americans) have been spoiled for too long. Its all over. Our easy, excessive lifestyle is over. We have destroyed ourselves. The worst is yet to come. It would be great if somehow this business can survive (although doubtful)

peanut butter, why don't you take yourself and your liberal like-minded doomsdayers and do all of us a favor and run off a cliff at Patrick's Point or Trinidad Head? Actually the pulp mill is very efficient and produces a high quality, high value product that is environmentally friendly: Chlorine free pulp.

The only people I've observed wih the "easy, excessive lifestyles" are the government workers who waste the taxpayer's resources. Look at the two day a month furloughs. Just more vacation time for already over-paid State employees.

Why is it that it's always the worker who gets the blame for everything that goes wrong with our economy? Joe-six-pack didn't cause the recession this country is now in, it was caused by decisions made by the guys at the top. The people who make 20-40-200 million a year, not the guy pulling green-chain or working at the hamburger stand.

Sooooo, P.G.& E. should be able to dump their spent fuel in your backyard as long as they are making a profit and employing people?

You sir are an idiot!

Middle-o-the-roa d, please explain to us where you get your facts about PG&E "dumping" their spent fuel. The spent fuel is in dray cask storage vaults. PG&E is a power generating company regulated by the State of California's Public Utilities Commission, and their handling and storage of their spent nuclear fuel is overseen by the Federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

You sir project your own self when you state someone else is an idiot.

I had no intentions of taking a shot at the mill. I would love to see it succeed. I am aware of the positive environmental changes that have occurred there. I am also aware of the living wages that are paid there. Both good things. My point is other countries can produce things just as good as America but way cheaper. To stay competitive in the world market many companies have been forced to outsource or they would be out of business completely. Look around your house. Practically nothing is made in America. That is REALLY bad for us. Even Budweiser is foreign owned. GREED has killed America. All across the board, especially the CEO's.

The second half of post # 16 was directed at Water Control Board Nazis.

Did you read what he wrote in post # 13? To paraphrase him; "It's o.k. to pollute as long as it keeps people working and people are making money at it"

The nazi thinks it's o.k. to destroy our planet for a buck and allI was doing was pointing out that this guy wonldn't like nuclear trash dumped in his back yard!
