Companies and organizations continue to promote the switch from print to digital forms of communication but is this cost-cutting in the best interests of the customer? Based on a June 2017 U.S. survey¹, 90% of respondents felt they should have the right to choose how they receive communications (printed or electronic) from financial organizations and service providers, and 83% thought consumers should not be charged more for choosing a paper bill or statement. However, corporations are increasingly charging their customers for paper statements.
A fire that erupted late Tuesday at the Verso Paper Mill in Wisconsin Rapids is being blamed on lightning, during a storm that passed through the area.
The Verso Corporation issued a statement Wednesday saying that the lightning strike caused a fire at the scrubber stack. Witnesses saw heavy smoke and flames shooting from the building after the fire broke out.
The Wisconsin Rapids Fire Department brought the blaze under control at about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday.
