NewPage Corp.'s paper mill, one of Allegany County's largest employers, will lose 130 jobs as part of the Dayton, Ohio-based company's efforts to cut costs and match production with market demand. The job cuts are the result of the permanent shutdown of the plant's No. 7 paper machine, which the company said last week would end production by March 31. NewPage said it will offer early retirement to hourly employees who are 62 or older next year, while some might be moved to other positions.

Environmental Elements Corp., the Baltimore-based maker of air pollution-control devices, said it has won its second contract as a result of new federal regulations tightening hazardous-emissions standards in the paper industry. The company said it won a $15 million contract from a North American pulp and paper company to do environmental cleanup work at four paper mills in the Southeast. Environment Elements officials didn't identify the client. It is the second contract the company has secured as a result of companies' needing to meet tougher standards for reducing hazardous air pollutant emissions.

MeadWestvaco Corp. said yesterday that it is selling its papermaking business, including a Western Maryland mill that is the second-largest private employer in Allegany County. State and local officials believe the $2.3 billion sale to Cerberus Capital Management LP, a private investment firm in New York, will have little impact on the county. The business might be better off separated from MeadWestvaco's packaging operation, they said. "I was concerned when I heard the news, but after talking to the management team, I'm very comfortable that we will continue to have stability in this facility," said Aris Melissaratos, the state's secretary of business and economic development.

This newspaper is grayish. Grocery bags are brown. Copy paper is white. Ditto paper towels. Ditto toilet paper, typing paper, note pads, stationery, food packaging and office paper. Snowy white and pure.Well, not so pure. You see, the reason most paper is so dazzling white is that it is bleached with chlorine at the pulp and paper mill. And among the byproducts of the chlorine bleaching process are hundreds of synthetic compounds called organochlorines. One group of these compounds is a family called dioxins, which includes the most toxic substances ever made.

Four years after acknowledging doubts about the dangers of dioxin, the Environmental Protection Agency is poised to confirm its original finding that the chemical compound is a potent poison, one that may cause cancer and other serious health problems even at the extremely low levels to which people are now exposed.In a 2,000-page draft report to be released today in Washington, the EPA is expected to conclude, after reviewing both animal and human studies, that dioxin is a probable cause of cancer.
