DRAYTON, N.D.: Main Street locked out by lockout
Published 10/15/2011, Grand Forks Herald
As smallest Red River Valley community with American Crystal Sugar plant, Drayton feels pinch of lockout even more
Drayton likely is the hardest hit community proportionally of the five Red River Valley plant sites because its population of 800 is the smallest, about half of Hillsboro’s. But some see a greater harm than lost wages and lower beet payments to growers, not the least in community relationships -- some which may never be mended.
