It's a rare thing when a timber mill adds another shift. 

It's far rarer that an environmental group applauds the addition. 

But Malheur Lumber is adding a shift at its mill in the eastern Oregon town of John Day, and an agreement with environmental groups played a part in the move.

The Western Environmental Law Center is one of them; WELC's Susan Jane Brown joins us.
