Off topic, but in doing a bit of research on the viability of Nippon continuing as a paper making mill, I found out the industry is in virtual freefall:
"More than 60 pulp and paper mills were closed and 33 idled production from 2013-2014"
Verso Announces Closure of Wickliffe, Kentucky Paper Mill
Apr 5, 2016 - The decision to close the Wickliffe Mill is aligned with Verso's long-held ... although it was unable to sell the facility as an operating paper mill...

Mar 14, 2016 - Senator King: Paper mills closing is economic "hurricane"...
But what are our local leaders doing about Nippon's announcement?
Doing ANYTHING to head off the probable closure of the Nippon Mill? Looking ahead?
Does anyone really believe that Pat Downie, Cherie Kidd, Brad Collins and/or Dan Gase are looking toward the future? Are any of them even capable of doing so? I highly doubt it. They're not suited to it intellectually, temperamentally or otherwise.
In fact, the former Fluoride Four could also be summed up with a different, though equally alliterative name. Trigger warning, Cherie! It's a four-letter word. Yes indeed, these queasy, quaking cowards could, and should, be known as the Four Who Fear.
F is for the many things they're 'fraid of
E is for their egos on parade
A is for atrophy in brains so dead
R is for the ruin that lies ahead
Put them all together and you've got FEAR...
Which infects every word yet to be said.
