Wood products industry
doing great things here

The month we are about to leave behind has special meaning to loggers, millworkers, papermakers, foresters and others who work with timber resources — as Wisconsin just celebrated Forestry and Paper Products Month.

 

That legislative proclamation is an annual reminder of the significance of timber products in terms of economic opportunity, job creation and the health of our forests, both public and private.

Believes Pines plan would close schools

Letter to the Editor:

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has been pushing for motor trolling for many years, and, as several of our friends and neighbors have stated, “This proposal was going to be passed this time around for sure,” no matter how the people voted.
