Morris Park Community Association Meeting

Wednesday Night the Morris Park Community Association held its bi-monthly meeting. This meeting was to give the Columbus Day Parade committee a pat on the back for doing what turned out to be a very good job considering all the obstacles that had to be overcome, including the rain that turned heavy during the parade. Mayor Bill de Blasio marched in the parade, and Al D’Angelo president of the MPCA said he kept smiling even as the few detractors booed or hurled other comments at him. Al also said that the mayor assured him that work would restart on the revamping of the baseball/softball field.

What a local hero did for water protection

Curt Sparks began his career at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency in 1972, the same year that congress established the Federal Clean Water Act. In the decades preceding, water pollution in the United States had become so problematic that urban rivers caught on fire and biologists were unable to find more than two living fish in the entire Mississippi River from Minneapolis to St. Paul. After joining the newly created MPCA, Sparks and his colleagues worked to regulate “point-source” discharges from factories and wastewater treatment plants to help clean up Minnesota’s lakes and rivers.
