A lumber mill that has been in business for 70 years in Snohomish is closing in March, putting 50 people out of work.

Seattle-Snohomish Mill owner Megan McMurray said the slow housing and construction industry was a major factor in the decision.

The Daily Herald reports (http://is.gd/rWr3zz) the mill had cut back from a workforce of 160 in 2009.
