Tar balls are NOT from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

There have been 3 suspected tar balls found on Panama City Beach over the last few days--its been determined they were actually pieces of asphalt! 

So, as I've said over and over..........NO TAR BALLS, NO OIL SHEEN, NO OIL IN MEXICO BEACH!!!


The big news splash of the last day or so has been the tar balls found in Key West.  Below is the response from DEP. 

Florida Keys tar balls not linked to Deepwater Horizon oil spill



KEY WEST, Fla. - The Coast Guard Marine Safety Laboratory in New London,


Conn. analyzed a sampling of tar balls discovered on Florida Keys shoreline


Tuesday and determined that none of the collected samples are from the


Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

A sampling of tar balls discovered on beaches at Fort Zachary Taylor State


Park, Fla., Smathers Beach in Key West, Big Pine Key, Fla., and Loggerhead


Key in the Dry Tortugas National Park, Fla. were flown by a Coast Guard


HU-25 Falcon jet based in Miami, Fla., to New London, Conn. Tuesday for


testing and analysis.


The results of those tests conclusively show that the tar balls collected


from Florida Keys beaches do not match the type of oil from the Deepwater


Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The source of the tar balls remains


unknown at this time.

Let me repeat............NO TAR BALLS, NO OIL SHEEN, NO OIL, NOTHING, NADA, ZIL, ZIP, ZILCH!

Our waters in Panama City to Mexico Beach are beautiful as ever, our sand is blinding its so white!!!
