Cleanup of Gulf Coast nears end, but buried oil in sands may linger for a long time, Associated Press, December 30, 2010:
Sheryl Lindsay['s]... beach wedding business in Orange Beach has tanked.
"It's just not happening. We have seven weddings booked. Normally at this time of year I would have at least 30 on the books," Lindsay said. "March, April, May and June should be booked solid right now."
Lindsay said her business is doomed, and she is trying to sell it.
"I'm done. It's just too much. I'm about ready for counseling," she said. "They destroyed our lives. Can you imagine not having a paycheck? I never thought I'd be in this situation. It's just sad."
