Tar balls arrive at Alabama beach resort
[link to www.knoxnews.com]

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. - Beaches were virtually oil-free until today in Orange Beach, Ala. But dawn brought lines of small, rust-colored tar balls stretching as far as the eye could see along the water line.

Walking on the beach with her husband, Cheryl Trotter wondered if sea life knew the oil was coming somehow.

"I've seen dolphins everyday, at least four, on my morning walks. Today, there are none," said Trotter, of Knoxville, Tenn. She rubbed sand on her feet trying to remove oil as she spoke.

Jim Trotter said their children wouldn't get in the Gulf, even though waters at Orange Beach had been clear. "It's been beautiful until now," he said. "This is going to be a shock."

Tricia Washington of Tupelo, Miss., stood at water's edge and watched small tar balls roll in. The small globs looked like a solid, reddish-brown streak in just a few minutes.

Washington is with her daughter, granddaughter, two nieces and one of their friends. Her husband, a farmer, had to stay home and work.

"It wasn't bad yesterday, but we still stayed at the pool. There's a lot more today," she said. "We came down Monday and are leaving tomorrow. I guess we hit it right."

In the distance, a big rig just off the beach was laying boom near the entrance to Perdido Bay, where strands of orange and yellow boom protect inlets, small islands and grassy areas.

Re: Tar balls arrive at Alabama beach resort
Can anyone give a good straight answer as to what this is really going to mean for the Gulf? Even if the oil was completely capped off today? Please no drama answers, like "the Gulf is dead"...unless that is in fact true. I'm young and stupid and can't really wrap my mind around this. Do we even know what the long term out come will be? I've been following this from day one and it has me so bummed out. Its like someone in my family has cancer and it may be terminal, but there is a small chance its not...the not knowing is eating me alive.

you're young but you're seeking knowledge... you're already increasing you're survival rate... keep asking questions AC.
...when all is said and done, IMO, the Gulf will be dead for a while.... problem is, we are in hurricane season..... more oil can/will be pushed inland, stronger currents in the ocean can/will carry the oil to the Gulf Stream along the east coast to the North Atlantic waters of Europe,...etc, etc, etc, .... keep educating yourself AC... i sure am....

Goodness gracious great balls of tar!
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

ORANGE BEACH, Alabama - A lot of activity was buzzing around Boggy Point at the end of Marina Road Wednesday morning due to a large amount of oil washing ashore and flowing into Perdido Bay and then Perdido Pass. Oil had already hit Perdido Bay earlier in the week, but the boom that was supposed to protect the Perdido Pass appears to be funneling the oil into Perdido Bay. Robinson Island and Perdido Island are still protected, but there are large amounts of oil coming into the bay Cotton Bayou and Terry Cove.

Thanks, but don't worry about me. It's my favorite place to vacation, and a lot of money in real estate, but not my livelihood. Think about, and pray for, all those people who are going to lose their jobs and maybe their homes, and all the helpless animals that are going to die.
