Korbel Mill Reopening: Hooray!

Some good news in the Times- Standard for a change, the Korbel sawmill having been bought by a Trinity County company. We can't blame the closure of the mill on hysterical environmentalism, it having closed down before because of low profits. I do wonder if the local environmentalists won't try and stop the mill's reopening? After all, the dislike of natural resource extraction industries is strong in, not just the state, but the county, with even candidates for Board of Supervisors seeming leery of such type of businesses.

Good thing the mill was bought by a company experienced in operations in California. It would likely lay idle for a long time if someone with no experience, or an inexperienced company, tried to open it.

HOJ is open to the idea of fishing, logging, ag interests, etc.... natural resource extraction is manageable if properly regulated, but with regulatory over reaches, corners get cut on all political processes as a means of self imposed denial.
