Orange Beach, Alabama – It will soon be six months since the BP oil spill occurred in the Gulf of Mexico. There's been a lot of news coverage about the nation's worst environmental disaster. But, you have to live there to really know what it's like. Alabama Public Radio invited Orange Beach resident Eloise Thomley to offer some thoughts. In the first in a series of commentaries, Thomley talks about what Gulf coast residents call the "lost summer."
