Our economy is ailing. The holiday is coming, and possibly backlash from the recent oil spill. By all means, head to our beaches this weekend. Take advantage of them while they're still untarnished. You'd also be doing your part to improve this state's financial situation ... and in a way that's thoroughly rewarding for the individual.

...With the oil spill out in the gulf coast, it is only natural that people will be looking for other vacation outlets and it is nice to hear about how many people are finding all of the hidden riches we have here in Alabama at our state parks, lakes etc...

We were planning a trip to Florida next weekend, and after the editorial comment thought about it. Why not stay in Alabama and go to our own beaches here down by Gulf Shores,our beaches are just as good as Florida's probably better.
