NEAH BAY — The Makah Tribe and the Composite Recycling Technology Center of Port Angeles will celebrate the opening of a new sawmill in Neah Bay today, a joint project between the company and the tribe. A ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. will celebrate the completion of the mill, which was paid for through grant money obtained in partnership with CRTC and the tribe.
