More than 100 people have been arrested since October at the sight of a proposed expansion of liquid propane gas storage (LPG) near Seneca Lake. Many of the recent arrests are prominent business owners. The owners of a new high-wattage wine project -- one from California, one from Germany -- now say that if they had known this LPG project was going forward, they probably would have skipped coming to the Finger Lakes. So why has it gotten so heated? What's the latest development?

Guests include:

Will Ouweleen - owner of O-Neh-Da Vineyards

Joseph Campbell - Gas Free Seneca

Phil Davis and Lou Damiani - Co-owners of Damiani Vineyards
