Column: I'll give you an oil spill

Email News Alerts

In compiling this week's Time Capsule, I ran into a story about Lund Boats being used to aid the clean up of the Exxon Valdez oil spill, at that time, in 1989, the worst oil catastrophe in the country's history.


It was also in this week, 21 years ago, that Exxon pulled clean up crews from the Alaskan area due to potential danger, mainly rough seas and weather.

What a mess.
