RHINELANDER, WI (WSAU) -  Friday’s announcement by Wausau Paper that three mills are for sale has the communities of Mosinee, Rhinelander, and Brainerd Minnesota concerned.

Rhinelander’s Mayor Dick Johns is optimistic a new buyer will be found for the Rhinelander mill. Johns worked for the Rhinelander mill for more than 40 years.  He's hopeful the outcome of a potential sale will be positive.

Reports indicate the company will move from packaging, the food industry, linings and masking tape made at the three mills for sale and focus on tissue production at a plant in Kentucky.
