Milltown, along with adjacent Bonner and both in the heart of the timber wars since the Sagebrush Rebellion, was until recently the company town completely dependant on a lumber mill. After the timber companies left for the pulp forests of the Southeast, the mill building became a bitcoin (or equivalent) server farm. No shit! Hydroenergy provided in part by a nearby dam (now decommissioned as part of a SuperFund cleanup) was damn cheap. Faraway capitalists have forever hollowed out and will forever hollow out this town.

What we witness may not be "newsworthy" but that doesn't mean we shouldn't attract attention.
