PACK RIVER OPENS DOVER BUILDING
Pack River Lumber Co. has concentrated most of its office operations for the Dover Tenex plant and the Colburn lumber mill in a new office building at the Dover plant. The division’s logging operations are headquartered there also.
The 80 by 30-foot building was constructed last winter by Pack River employees under direction of Don Becker, and was occupied for the first time in February. The entire building is cooled by refrigerated air conditioning.
Some of Pack River’s offices remain in the company structure on Cedar Street in Sandpoint.

HIGHWAY COMMISSIONER COMING
State bureau of highways commissioner Wm. Hall will be here next week to take up work upon the “north and south” highway, for which the legislature voted $28,000 to Bonner county providing that a similar amount be spent by the county and which amount was provided for in the county bond issue. This county’s “north and south” highway is designated by the state as that from the south county line between Athol and Granite directly north and connecting with the Bonners Ferry road.
