PORTLAND As part of the Portland lumber company’s bankruptcy proceedings, Indonesian conglomerate Sinar Mas Group will buy four of Pope & Talbot’s pulp mills, including its sole Oregon mill in Halsey, for approximately $231 million. A judge is expected to approve Sin Mar Group’s bid on the mills, three of which are in British Columbia; Montana-based Fox Lumber Sales has bid $750,000 for another Canadian mill. Sin Mar Group has not announced plans for the Halsey mill, which employees about 180. Pope & Talbot put itself up for sale and then sought bankruptcy protection after it took huge losses in 2007 because of the slowing housing market, the weak dollar and labor issues at its Canadian mills.

The media coverage about Pope Francis must have put me in a Biblical frame of mind. Because after touring the latest phase of the South Waterfront development, a mind boggling 1.5 million square feet of office and retail space that will spring up north of the aerial tram over the next few years, I couldn’t stop thinking about the massive project as a modern day creation story.

Striving for social equity is the mission of many nonprofits, and this year’s 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon survey shows employees are most satisfied with their organizations’ fair treatment of differing racial, gender, disability, age and economic groups. But as a national discourse about racial discrimination and equity for low-income groups takes center stage, data show Oregon’s 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For still need to make progress on addressing these issues within their own organizations.
