Gathering to push - once again - for greenway in Memphis
You don't have to look far to find examples of U.S. cities that are going green.
The health care climate in Memphis is rapidly changing. Almost every day, new technologies, research or procedures are announced.
Larry E. Potter, presiding judge of the Memphis/Shelby County Environmental Court, has received Keep America Beautiful's (KAB) Iron Eyes Cody Award. The award was named in honor of KAB's landmark public awareness campaign of the 1970s, "People Start Pollution. People Can Stop It," which featured the iconic face and tear of Iron Eyes Cody and is credited with awakening the environmental consciousness of an entire generation. Potter became the first Environmental Court judge in Memphis and Tennessee in 1983. During that year, he helped create the court.
