CENTRALIA, Wash. (AP) — The Northwest Hardwoods lumber mill in Centralia is cutting production because the slowdown at West Coast ports has crippled its ability to export products.

Vice President Brian Narramore told The Chronicle production will be cut as much as half, starting Monday, impacting 100 employees one way or another.

Narramore says Northwest Hardwoods also is curtailing production at its mills in Longview and Garibaldi, Oregon, which represent half of the company’s capacity in the West.

    I know this is difficult to believe, but closing the ports by whoever is going to speed the process up. If the workers continue to the work slow but still get paid, that can go on forever.
