The Living Green Expo was this weekend, and I had a booth, first time they’ve had a lawyer there!

An excited energy enthusiast locked the keys in one of the hybrids. They had one per year that they’ve been manufactured, and had the hybrid bus with the bike rack on front (I didn’t see evidence of the Solar Bike Tour but I might have missed it).

The only disaster of the day was that the Resource Center of the Americas’ coffee pot lost its power at a crucial point mid-morning. A minor revolution ensued…

My booth was in the far row, just to the left of the center column in the photo.


Many of the people who stopped by were concerned about Mesaba, Arrowhead Transmission Line too, although I think the sample was skewed by a large percentage of people from up north.

I wasn’t really ready for this, didn’t have my stuff copied, so it could have been a lot better, but given the hours this week on the Blooming Grove utiity personal property tax exemption, just showing up was a feat. Check the front page of the Mankato Free Press for the full scoop on the tax exemption, 7 billion cubic feet of gas storage, and the resolution before the Waseca County Board on Tuesday — we’ve got a small army down there. I’ll post the link when I get it.
