I used to hear complaints about papermill smell, but that's one of the things I enjoyed about paddling trips in the mountains. Might get old after awhile, but it could be worse. Good to see some kind of increase in American industry.

the women that owns nine dragons is said to be the richest women in china. her son is running the rumford mill. he had his fancy sports cars brought up and also has a helicopter to ride around in. my guess would be that some of the pulp goes to china. if so dose it ship out of searsport or eastport? searsport is a lot closer but it may depend on the size of the ship
