Wayne Mattress Business Won’t Reopen After Tornado

October’s deadly tornado is permanently killing jobs in Wayne.  Mattress-maker Pacific Coast Feather Company said yesterday it won’t be reopening after it was damaged by the October 4th storm that registered an EF-4.  That means about 150 people will not be getting their jobs back.
