Unions representing Bucksport paper makers have filed an injunction against the Verso paper company.
They're trying to force Verso to give the workers severance pay soon after the mill closes this month and not wait 3 months as it plans. The state says Maine law requires the company to pay the money within the first pay cycle after they're laid off. Verso claims that's not the case and they have a contract that indicates they can pay them this spring. The injunction filed today seeks to place attachments on the company's real estate in Bucksport or on any proceeds that come from the mills sale.

Police eventually found him near the Back River where Colby tried elude arrest by swimming away. After refusing to come back to shore a boat was launched with police and rescuers on board. They tried to talk him into coming aboard, but he declined and also refused putting on a life jacket.Police say Colby gave up when he was pepper sprayed and towed back to shore. He's now charged with eluding arrest and police also discovered that he had three active warrants for his arrest. Those warrants for unpaid fines, cultivation of marijuana and refusing to submit to arrest.
