AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Pixelle Specialty Solutions’ Androscoggin Mill is back in operation after a dramatic explosion but the loss of its pulp operation is going to hurt loggers and truckers.

Two of the mill’s three paper machines restarted last week but pulp is being provided from other mills for the time being, hurting the loggers and truckers who provided the raw material that’s transformed into paper.
