Escambia County Commissioner Gene Valentino: "There was never any nearshore sampling."

BP supervisor: "We're the wrong people."

Commissioner Valentino: "Alright your just the beach."

BP supervisor: "We are and we're not, I'm looking after tarmat at NAS right now."

WEAR-TV: Wells says that incident command located in New Orleans tells him when an underwater tar mat located. His only job is to get this excavator out to clean it up. According to Wells, no one in the local beach cleanup is actually surveying for submerged oil.
