In response to last week's tanker spill, Paul Labovitz, superintendent of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, wrote an opinion piece that was published in Sunday's Star Tribune. If there was a bright side to the disaster, it was that it hopefully raised public awareness about the fact that everything that goes down the storm drains empties directly into the river. Paul not only drove this point home, but also emphasized our responsibility to care for this precious resource in our community every day - not just when disaster strikes.
