Wausau Paper will bring on two new board membersSubmitted: 03/06/2013
Story By Lane Kimble


WAUSAU - It seems Wausau Paper's largest shareholder will get what it wanted... Two new, non-affiliated Board Members. Wausau Paper announced the decision Wednesday.

New York-based Starboard Value LP holds about 15 percent of Wausau Paper's stock.

It had demanded the paper company sell underperforming mills and make changes to its Board of Directors earlier this year.

The two new board members were suggested by Starboard Value LP, but do not have any connection to either Starboard Oor Wausau Paper.

They'll be up for approval at the 2013 Annual Meeting.

This is the third big change of the year for Wausau Paper. In January, the company announced the sale of three midwest mills, including Rhinelander's.

Then, last month, they announced the Brainerd, Minn. mill would close.

RHINELANDER - The earthquake in Nepal devastated the country and people who live there. Golden Harvest in Rhinelander is now raising money to help those people in need.

They've only raised a couple hundred dollars since they started collecting donations on Thursday. Workers hope people will think about how much some people in Nepal lost.

"My heart goes out to those people because if you were to lose part of your family, and where you live, and where you work, and where you've grown up, I'm sure you'd want to be supported," said employee Mitchell Marshall.

Golden Harvest is fundraising through Samaritan's Purse. Workers encourage people to donate, even if it's a small amount.
