The sale of a closed paper mill in Duluth, Minnesota will bring back at least 80 jobs to the region. It's the latest move affecting Wisconsin workers in a roiling paper industry.

Verso Corp. announced Monday that it would sell its Duluth mill, which employed more than 200 people in the Duluth-Superior area before it closed last year, to the Virginia-based ST Paper and Tissue.
