Page 172 - King Estate Vineyard and Winery

"Those of us who subscribe to The Register-Guard have read some
articles on King Estate and the business analyses of its projected
success or failure. These articles were mainly analytical and did not
touch upon the very human element involved in the huge undertaking
of the King family. They did not mention the possible ramifications to
Lorane of a new mega-business in its midst. Since the gradual decline
of the timber industry has had a negative impact on its lumber mills and
logging companies, Lorane has increasingly become what is referred
to as a ‘bedroom community' where people make their homes while
working elsewhere. If the King family realizes the success it envisions,
what influence will it have on the Lorane community?"
