Was it really Winonaís frac sand protest? (05/05/2013)
From: James R. Puz

When I saw the news regarding the 35 arrested frac sand protesters, I had assumed that the majority of those involved were from Winona. Not so, my wife corrected, citing the police blotter. I proceeded to break down the blotterís tally by region and came up with some startling results: 9 came from outlying MN; 7 from IA; 7 from WI; 2 each from MI and MO; 1 each from IL,NC,MS and AZ. Of the 9 from outlying areas in Minnesota, 5 came from Minneapolis. That left a whopping 4 protesters from Winona proper. While I understand the protest was in response to the frac sand industry in general, the protest found its way to a particular property that is engaged in the industry and is located in Winona. Four? Thatís sort of like protesting the open pit coal mines in Wyoming but with the vast majority of those opposing such devastation coming from Florida. Kind of takes the edge off the protestersí issues, donít you think?
