May 23, 2013 - The Associated PressWORLAND -- A project to erect new silos at the Wyoming Sugar Factory in Worland is drawing praise from Gov. Matt Mead.
Mead was on hand this past week to congratulate all involved in the project by a plant that was on the brink of becoming a thing of the past several years ago.
The governor says the project shows how a Wyoming issue can be addressed in the Wyoming way with Wyoming people.
Officials say lack of storage at the Worland facility has forced the plant to slow down production at times.
The plant nearly closed about six years ago but growers in the region raised the money to buy it and keep it going.
