"I sat outside Andre Beguinís office and tallied the production. There were no PCís in those days and everything was entered by hand in a ledger. Trying to balance the input with the output of AAA, AA, A and lower fibers was a real challenge. We installed the Wheelabrator system that winter which helped to keep the dust level down. Itís a wonder any of us survived the dust in our lungs! Some didnít and the rest of us are lucky."
