1st Earth Day was in 1970
The first Earth Day took place in 1970, giving a voice to a growing movement that espoused the importance of addressing environmental issues and adopting eco-friendly lifestyles. This year, Earth Day takes place on April 22. The late Wisconsin senator Gaylord Nelson is credited with coming up with the idea for a day devoted to focusing on environmental issues affecting the entire planet. Nelson was reportedly inspired by the vehement student anti-Vietnam War movement that took root in the United States in the late 1960s and continued into the 1970s. Senator Nelson felt that if he could inspire similar passion among the masses about environmental issues, then those issues would force their way into the national agenda. Senator Nelson's intuition proved correct, and on April 22, 1970, 20 million Ameri-cans gathered to demonstrate against policies and practices that contributed to the deterioration of the environment.

Meet the Jennings County torchbearers
Jeff O'Connor admits he was truly honored to learn that the selection committee for the Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay committee had voted to honor his late father, Pat O'Connor.
Although he was just under two years old when his father was killed in the opening lap of the 1958 Indianapolis 500, Jeff says his memories of his father are what other people have told him through the years.
"What really stuck out for me was how prestigious of a position he held in the racing world as an Indy race car driver," Jeff revealed. "Growing up when you hear about the 500, you think wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to participate in it or know someone who had and, fortunately, I was related to one that did."
