Fort Nelson Mayor responds

first_img Canfor posted profits in the second quarter of this year after of multimillion dollar losses in the first quarter of 2008 and the fourth quarter of 2007. Fort Nelson mayor Chris Morey says she’s worried about the impact of the Tackama Plywood plant closure on Fort Nelson families. Canfor announced today that it would close its Tackama operations indefinitely at the end of October, resulting in a loss of 290 jobs in the small community. The closure will also result in an indirect loss of employment. Earlier this year, that number was estimated to be about 250.- Advertisement – Mayor Morey says only time will tell how dire the effects of the closure will be for the community, but she hopes that new shale gas developments in the area will provide jobs to ease some of the job losses ahead. The announcement comes on the heels of Morey’s confirmation that she will not be seeking re-election this November. However, she says that fact won’t stop her from using her remaining time in office to find jobs for laid off workers in the community.

Veracruz on to InterLiga finals

first_img Roethlisberger wasn’t winking when he made the comment, but no doubt was accentuating the theme of the day inside the Steelers’ locker room. Namely, that the whole country is picking against them, and they might as well start packing for their six-month vacation before training camp starts. “I don’t think anybody is picking us to win,” Roethlisberger said. “Obviously, they’re the best football team in the NFL and we’re just the Pittsburgh Steelers. We’re going to go in and obviously try to find a way to just put a few points on the board and compete.” Ben Roethlisberger made a candid admission for the quarterback of a team that has won 28 of its last 35 games and considers itself to be among the NFL’s elite. Even if his Pittsburgh Steelers play as well as possible in Sunday’s AFC divisional playoff game, Roethlisberger suggested Wednesday, they won’t win if the Indianapolis Colts play equally as well. “This team is an unbelievable football team,” Roethlisberger said of the Colts, who won their first 13 games before dropping two of their final three. “They’re as good as it gets in the NFL. It’s going to take our A-plus game to go out and beat their B-minus game.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita The Steelers, accustomed to being a favorite and owning homefield advantage only to falter in the AFC title game, clearly seem to be reveling in this new they-can’t-win mode. “I think it’s a really good assessment,” All-Pro guard Alan Faneca said of Roethlisberger’s remarks. “They’ve shown all season what they can do offensively and defensively and how well they can do it on both sides of the ball, that it takes a great effort just to play on their level.” No player would say he’s glad to be returning to the noisy din of the RCA Dome, where the Steelers were visibly rattled and unnerved during a 26-7 Monday night loss on Nov. 28. But returning to the road, where the Steelers are 14-3 the last two seasons, hasn’t created any ominous air of defeat. HOF finalists center_img Troy Aikman and the late Reggie White were among the 15 finalists announced Wednesday for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. They joined Thurman Thomas and Warren Moon as finalists in their first year of eligibility. Results of the vote will be announced Feb. 4. Aikman quarterbacked Dallas to three Super Bowl titles between the 1992-1995 seasons. “If I were to be selected for induction, it would be the most meaningful individual achievement of my athletic career,” Aikman said. “It’s not something that I choose to spend a lot of time talking about, because I think that kind of talk is unfair to those men who have already earned their place in the Hall of Fame.” White, who died on Dec. 26, 2004, was one of the NFL’s dominant defensive linemen through the 1980s and ’90s. Thomas was a star running back on the Buffalo team that won four consecutive AFC titles from 1990-93. Moon threw for nearly 50,000 yards in the NFL after starting his career in the Canadian Football League. Brees to stay Drew Brees let the secret slip the San Diego Chargers would like to sign him to a long-term deal. Brees was discussing his shoulder surgery and rehab during a conference call with San Diego reporters when he was asked if the team had told him anything about his future. “They want to pursue me long-term,” Brees said from Birmingham, Ala. “I know that’s something that for the next few months everybody’s going to be working on. I know they want me long-term and I want to be here long-term.” “We are going to try to long-term him,” GM A.J. Smith said. Saints in Superdome NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue expects the New Orleans Saints to play all of their home games at the Superdome next season. Tagliabue also sought to reassure the community during a visit to the city Wednesday that the NFL is not moving the Saints back for a single season to make the league appear sympathetic to victims of Hurricane Katrina. The commissioner said it was clear to him that Saints owner Tom Benson plans to remain in New Orleans beyond 2006. He added that the NFL was even beginning discussions with local leaders about when New Orleans might be ready to host its next Super Bowl, which would be the city’s 10th. Palmer on mend Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer had surgery on knee ligaments torn during last weekend’s playoff loss to Pittsburgh and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2006 season. The operation was Tuesday in Houston, and he will begin rehabilitation this week in California, the team said Wednesday. Coaching updates The Green Bay Packers and 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McCarthy were nearing a deal to make him their next coach late Wednesday, a person involved in the negotiations said. The deal to hire McCarthy, the Packers’ quarterbacks coach in 1999, should be announced today. Oakland will interview its first candidate to replace fired coach Norv Turner when it meets with Chiefs offensive coordinator Al Saunders today. Cleveland offensive coordinator Maurice Carthon wrapped up formal interviews with New Orleans. He also has been mentioned as a candidate for the head coaching jobs at Detroit and Green Bay. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
