TIMBER COUNTRY TROUBLE
In this April 24, 2013 photo, Retired logger Jim Ford stands in his shop in Grants Pass, Ore. While Ford thinks logging can still be a major part of the economy in the rural West, jobs are half what they were 20 years ago, and mills continue to close. The region continues to look for new sources of jobs and government revenues. (AP Photo/Jeff Barnard)
