Central Wisconsin not open for business

Jim Rowen repoirts in his blog, The Political Environment:

More bad news for Marathon County:

Wausau Paper Corp. devasted the tiny Village of Brokaw this week with news that the paper mill there will shut down - - and the Wausau Daily Herald is pegging the job loss at 1,100 - - 450 jobs at the plant and another 650 as collateral damage elsewhere.

Unbelievably, a business making doors and windows said today it is closing in Mosinee - - where Wausau Paper is headquartered - - and the job impact, without the indirect effect, is put at 566.

Is Central Wisconsin open for business?

Nope: businesses are closing.
