More Oil Washes Up In Gulf Shores
Pat Peterson Reporter
Pat Peterson
GULF SHORES, Alabama -

For the first time in more than five weeks, oil has impacted Gulf Shores. On Wednesday, massive amounts of oil and tar washed up near the pier at Gulf State Park, turning the sugar-white beaches an ugly brown. But what's even more disturbing....not one single BP clean-up or piece of beach-cleaning equipment could be found at the state park.


BP has drastically reduced its beach clean-up force because the company says they're not needed since oil has impacted local beaches in weeks. But the tropical disturbance in the Gulf churned up oil and pushed it onshore. Not one person assigned to clean-up the beach could be found for miles.

4. But I thought Baby Jesus called the oil up into the heavens on golden sunbeams.
That's what I've been reading here, anyway.
