Biting Comments on Layoffs From Scotia/Rio Dell

Barbara Griffith, who grew up in Scotia, said, “I’m astounded at the lack of care for the workers that have laid their lives out for (PALCO).”

“Everything over there has gone from bad to worse. It’s like a death in the community.”

Terry Matthews, longtime PALCO employee, said, “It’s sad to see a way of life go by the wayside.”

Doug Hartley, truck driver for Redwood Coast Trucking, put it more bluntly. “They’re bailing out,” he said. “I predict they’ll be belly-up in two years.”

“Maybe a decent company will come in and run the company like it ought to be run.”

Nobody talked to me, of course. If they had, they would have been asked "Why the hell aren't you supporting the Heartlands Project and get rid of Maxxam's ownership once and for all?"

If enviros want to do something more than just flap their gums or make more media circus protest noise that hasn't done zip to stop Maxxam, they need to work with our Heartlands Project instead of against it. We have the only financial mechanism that can change the Texas corporate ownership and control of Palco and bring it back to the community. We need funding help. Why not help us and stop Palco from becoming subdivided.
