Seems to me that whoever is there first has 'emminent domain'- was it the paper plant?

Or was it the neighborhood?

Same issue with airports (Camarillo, Oxnard, Van Nuys, Burbank, LAX - the list goes on). Lots of people complaining about the noise from living under the flight path of an airport that had been there since the 1930's. Guaranteed most (a HUGE most) of those residents weren't!

George Carlin said it best -'If you don't like the weather - MOVE!'

In this instance, the 'weather' is the paper plant. And it was there first.

Don't like it? You know what you can do about it.
