LP&T intellectual property sold to Gordon Brothers

March 25 - A bankruptcy judge has cleared the sale of Lincoln Paper & Tissue's trademarks, patents and other intellectual property for $75,000 to the consortium of liquidators that recently purchased the company's equipment.

A group of former employees had hoped to delay the sale of the intellectual property to keep papermaking capacity at the mill until someone could be found to purchase and operate the mill. 

Now that Gordon Brothers has purchased the patented methods, product recipes and software, they will be able to sell off equipment that uses those assetts.

March 3 - Penobscot Valley Hospital in Lincoln will lay off 10 full-time employees and implement a number of other cost-cutting measures to offset losses from decreasing revenues over the past few years.
