More Sand Shipped From Winona This Year

“There is a process of local demand really trumping what the river could pay for [corn],” Brauch said, referring to ethanol plants outbidding the terminal last year. Whether that trend continues in the future remains to be seen, he added. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) released its first-ever Ports and Waterways Plan, a statewide strategy for boosting waterborne transit and repairing and upgrading shipping infrastructure. The plan calls for Mn/DOT to devote funding to port repair projects and support new intermodal terminals, for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to increase investment in dredging and lock and dam upkeep, and for local governments to be careful not to allow recreational, residential, and commercial riverfront use to encroach on prime dock space. The plan also addresses the future of waterborne commodities, stating that Minnesota ports should focus on new commodities like petroleum products and shipping containers to offset the declining shipments of traditional commodities like coal, taconite, and grain.

Well I seen one full of clothes and thats my daughters Christmas wish, so thats the main reason why I bought them I thought that it would be better to give it away to the people that are less fortunate and really need it and dont have it, Robinson said. The family set up a block away from the Ogden Road Home shelter so theyd be closeto those who need the items most. Theyre all happy. They can get what they need without paying for it and they can stay warm this winter and their babies can stay warm, Robinson said.
