KETCHIKAN - The manager of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough is resigning, reluctantly.
A shuttered veneer plant in Ketchikan could reopen soon if the U.S. Forest Service, Sealaska Corp. and the state can provide enough wood to keep the operation running. Representatives of the three parties, the state development agency and Oregon-based Timber Products Co. met in Juneau last week to discuss the possibility of reopening the plant, which closed in February 2001, one month after it opened.
