Rough and Ready Lumber closed its doors near Cave Junction several months ago, shutting the last operating sawmill in Josephine County. 

The owners of the mill said it was nearly impossible to get the logs the mill needs to stay in business. 

Then Oregon's governor announced a deal to help the mill re-tool to handle smaller logs, Rough and Ready will reopen later this year.
