Legislation is being proposed to prohibit frac-sand mining within 2,500 feet of a residential area. Growth of the frac-sand mining industry leads Wisconsin state Senator Kathleen Vinehout to introduce legislation with some controls. Five bills being proposed would give property owners and local government more power to control where the mines and processing plants can be located. Vinehout's district in the western part of the state is home to several frac-sand operations. Statewide there are up to 50 mining plants going now, with dozens more proposed.
New Jersey authorities report they have arrested a man who was found with 21 tons of stolen Wisconsin cheese in his possession. The 34 year old from Plainfield, Illinois, was picked up March 26 driving a refrigerated truck carrying 42,000 pounds of Muenster cheese. K&K Cheese of Cashton valued the cargo at an estimated $200,000. Authorities say the suspect submitted false paperwork to take the cheese. K&K can't guarantee the truckload wasn't compromised, so it's not asking to have the cheese returned. If the cheese passes health inspections, it will be donated to a New Jersey charity.
