Bad News for Linn County. Paper Plant to Close. 230 good jobs gone.

Click post title to go to story about the sudden announcement that the Millersburg paper plant will close, leaving 230 people without work. They were family wage to really good family wage jobs.

The paper plant, the article states, was the biggest property taxpayer in Linn County. Of course, I guess since the company will still own the property, until they find a buyer, they'll still have to pay those property taxes. At least there's that.

In the meantime, that's a lot of high wage jobs to lose. Linn County already has higher than average unemployment. Very sad.
