Oil cleanup workers hired by BP make an effort to clean the shore in Orange Beach, Ala., on Saturday. Large amounts of the oil battered the Alabama coast, leaving deposits of the slick mess some 4-inches thick on the beach in some parts.

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) - After looking good in the morning, the
shoreline at Orange Beach has been fouled again by a long strand of
tar balls.

The crude from the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was washing ashore Wedneday while an executive for BP was telling Orange Beach residents that little more than a bit of weathered oil and sheen was visible in Alabama waters.

While the oil continues to plaque coastal Alabama, Gov. Bob Riley is making a point to have his family at Orange Beach for a long Father's Day weekend. The Rileys, along with two daughters and four grandchildren, plan to spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Orange Beach, enjoying the Gulf and eating seafood in local restaurants.
