Letter to the Editor: Ban frac sand mining in Winneshiek County

Posted: Thu, Mar 21, 2013 9:04 AM

Mike Rothwell e-mails the following Letter to the Editor on frac sand mining..
Real simple.  Forget a 'moratorium' on frac sand mining in Winneshiek or Allamakee Counties.
What we need is simply a BAN.  Just say NO.  No matter what the 'under story' is regarding these boom 'n bust companies wanting to rape our resources for their bottom line - it's a simple no-brainer.  NO!  End of story.  The companies will get that message a lot more clearly than baiting them with a timeline moratorium.  They will think they have it in the bag - but just have to wait a little longer.  Again.  NO.  No means NO means no.
