I love this blog and trust and read all the posts, but was the article for Evergreen International Aviation checked out? It seems it is not closing as the post states.
For Immediate Release November 8, 2013
Contact: Evergreen International Aviation (503) 472-9361 firstname.lastname@example.org McMinnville, Oregon — November 8, 2013
As has been previously reported in the press, Evergreen’s business has been adversely impacted over the past several years by decreased demand in military spending and weakness in global economic markets. Management has moved to aggressively address these challenges, including through the divestiture of businesses and assets and the significant reduction of secured debt. Evergreen is in discussions with its significant constituencies and is exploring available strategic alternatives with those constituencies. While Evergreen generally does not comment on market rumor or conjecture, rumors that a decision has been made to cease operations at this time are false. Evergreen remains committed to continuing to address the current business environment with its customers.
