Jul 21, 2006 — A plan to re-open the paper mill in Newton Falls took a very small step forward this week. A board voted unanimously to support the site's inclusion in Potsdam's Empire Zone. That would make it eligible for tax breaks and low-cost power. A group led by Dennis Bunnell wants to re-open the paper mill as Newton Falls Fine Paper Company. The company wants to invest $20 million in the plant and hire 97 people. But after a year and a half of work, the plan is still preliminary. David Sommerstein has more.
