Stimson Lumber Company announced that its 85-year-old mill in Forest Grove is cutting 60 jobs, about 40% of its workforce. CEO Andrew Miller attributes the cuts to a changing business environment in Oregon and rising costs of operation. Those costs include environmental permit fees, Oregon’s Clean Fuels Tax and pending cap-and-trade legislation that he believes hurt rural communities and businesses disproportionately.
