Sand Gold Rush


  1. Vera Hemminger says:

    I live about one half mile from the center of the new sand plant in Chippewa Falls.
    The sand mine is not even operating yet and I have sand on my deck, my window sills, in my rain guage, and on the house siding. Before EOG I never found this kind of dirt in these places. I know it’s probably the dust from building and digging to place the buildings and I can only hope that the dust will be gone once the building is in place. I can no longer hang my clothes outside. I remember the ‘good old days’ when things were clean, noise from trucks were almost absent, the birds were more prevelent, deer used to come through here and turkeys. I made a mistake to move to what I thought was a piece of paradise.

  2. This video is on Coal Dust, but their problems are similar.

  3. Here’s a video interview with the Red Wing woman who lost her husband to silicosis. She heard about the Windsor Permian silica mine project and wrote a letter to the Red Wing newspaper. I brought a camera over to her
    house, and she told me her story. There are more videos on the right of the page.

Courteous, concise comments relevant to the topic are welcome, whether or not they agree with the views that predominate here. Long rants proclaiming the infallibility of your own views or favorite ideology will not be posted, neither will repeated attempts to hammer on a point already addressed, nor will comments containing profanity, abusive language, flame-baiting and name calling. Please indicate precisely what you are blogging about. I just got a post from ? E-Mail ? which said: "Is this going to be OUR furture??. I have no idea what they were referring to and no way to contact them. This is why we prefer comments that are signed by actual persons who leave their E-Mail address (it won't be published) so they can be contacted if questions arise.
