The foes of frac sand mining in southeast Minnesota have plenty of questions about the business...which they would like answered while local governments impose moratoriums on the mining.
Residents of Houston County may get some of those answers at a hearing Monday night, held at La Crescent High School. Kelly Stanage, a member of the 'Houston County Protectors' opposition group, says property values near a frac sand mine are just one concern of her organization. Stanage says frac sand mining also could cause local taxes to rise, because truck traffic associated with the mines might cause road damage that would have to be fixed. The hearing begins at 6:30.

(AP) Minority Democrats in the state Assembly won't let one of the roughest legislative sessions in Wisconsin history end. Thursday was the last scheduled day for floor debate in the Senate and Assembly before lawmakers leave Madison for the campaign trail. The Senate finished its work in less than an hour Thursday afternoon. The Assembly came to the floor Thursday morning and worked until 11 p.m. or so before the Democrats broke for strategy meetings. They returned to the floor around 3 a.m. Friday and started trying to pull their favorite bills up for votes, forcing majority Republicans to vote the attempts down one by one and prolonging the session. The body still had more than 30 bills on its regular calendar as dawn approached.
(AP) A sneezing driver is to blame for a power outage in Winona. Police say Travers DeWitte inadvertently stepped on the gas when a sneeze erupted, sending his vehicle across an intersection, up a curb and into a guy wire attached to a power pole. The crash snapped the cable, which flew up and severed a power line, cutting service to about 1,300 Xcel Energy customers Wednesday. Police say that sparks from the broken line ignited a small grass fire which quickly burned itself out. Power was later restored.
