Catherine Martell runs the Packard saw mill…
… though Josie is the legal owner. Catherine Martell is the sister of Andrew Packard, the owner of the Packard Mill. After her brother Andrew’s death in a boating accident, Catherine runs the Packard Mill although Andrew’s widow Josie is the legal owner.
This awkward situation often leads to managerial conflicts, like when Josie decides, much against Catherine Martell’s will, to shut down the mill after Laura’s death and the disappearance of another high school girl.
