? NewPage Corp. will lay off 300 people as part of a companywide reduction, a local spokesman for the Ohio-based papermaker said Tuesday. The firm, which is one of central Wisconsin's largest employers, operates eight paper mills, including three in central Wisconsin, where it employs about 1,700 people. Job reductions will be spread across all NewPage locations.

? A Weston manufacturing firm has started construction on a $2 million expansion that could add up to 15 jobs when work is complete this summer. L&S Electric repairs and overhauls motors for locomotives and machinery for mining and utilities. The project will nearly double the space for employees to rebuild traction motors for locomotives and repair motors for mining equipment that makes iron ore pellets.

? The future for jobs at Wausau Paper mills in Mosinee and Rhinelander remains uncertain, as the company announced it will close its mill in Brainerd, Minn., leaving 130 people without jobs. The firm in January placed all three mills up for sale.

? Mercury Marine will add 80 jobs in Fond du Lac within the coming months, the company announced. The manufacturing company added 1,000 new jobs last year.

? Madison-based Dean Health Plan will add between 30 and 50 jobs after getting a new contract, the company announced.
