While the ink dries on the deal, the new owners of Manistique Papers, Inc. took one last look at their new asset before heading out of town Friday. Taking time to pose for a picture during a tour of the mill are, front row, from left to right, FurtureMark president Steve Silver, Ben Procter (Watermill), Dale Okonow (Watermill), Linda Benedetto (MPI), Jon Johnson (MPI), Bob Ackerman (Watermill), Dave Peterson (mayor), Julia Karol (Watermill). In back, from left to right, are MPI employees John Erickson and Larry Koski, and Matt Bergin (Watermill). In the background, a roll of Kraft Brown Paper, one of the new product lines introduced last July is shown. The mill currently produces brown paper every two weeks in order to keep up with demand. 5p1.jpg
