    They don’t have to worry. There are lots of dead sawmills they can buy real cheap.

      @J Twedell
      I guess you are lucky enough to have a job that provides for you and your family, good for you. Not everyone is so ‘lucky.’ No reason to be mean. Oh, “just sayin’”.

    So sorry to hear this. I know the Post Master personally, and this is such a sad sad story for all of the employees as well.
