After 32 years, Gary Nixon, accompanied by his wife, Diana, exited one of the rear entrances at Resolute Forest Products last Thursday after his final shift there. A small group of family and friends awaited Nixon, who was the last hourly worker at the local mill that was closed permanently back in May, 2014. While two salary employees remain, some surmised Nixon’s departure is just one step closer to the mill being levelled and the community truly saying good-bye to an industry that supported and influenced the town for almost 100 years.
