Fromt the Publisher's Desk: We’ve all got the same mother

She chose the best possible weather for this year’s celebration. Mother Earth was overflowing with sunshine and blossoms to commemorate her 42nd Earth Day. In 1970, the same year president Richard Nixon established the Environmental Protection Agency “in order to protect human health and safeguard the natural environment — air, water and land,” U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelsen of Wisconsin, reacting to a devastating oil spill off Santa Barbara, jump-started setting aside one day a year to honor Mother.

Rick and I spent Earth Day weekend in Eugene, Ore., where special events were under way all over the city.

“Listen to Our Children” was sponsored by numerous organizations including Eugene Water and Electric Board, Lane County’s Waste Management, the Transit District, Schnitzer Steel and various Eugene media including newspapers and radio stations.
