PRINEVILLE, OR -- The Prineville area is dealing with a big blow, now that the Woodgrain Mill is laying off 200 some employees.  Casey Kaiser took over as the head of the Crook County Chamber of Commerce a few days ago.  He grew up in the area, and says massive layoffs hit the community hard.  "A lot going on right now is figuring out what this means for the community, the net loss of jobs. Those conversations are just starting.  I'm extremely impressed by the cooperation among a variety of organizations, EDCO, the county, the city, chamber, local non profits and events outside the area all coming together."

 

A job fair was held Thursday to help thse dispalced workers.  The Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council is also pursing a national emergency grant to help the affected workers.
