A flood of compassion

I retired from a 40-year career in ministry and moved from Middle Tennessee to Canton, North Carolina, on a whim. Also known as “Papertown,” Canton is a quaint mountain town on the headwaters of the Pigeon River. Its bustling industrial center is the Evergreen Paper Mill, which has been in operation for over 100 years. The mill has faced down chestnut blights, wrestled with forest management and water regulations since its inception, and defied a hostile buyout in the 1990s when nearly 2,000 employees paid $200 million to purchase it themselves.
