"Textbook response" -- it sure seems that way. Kudos all around!

As a relatively new G-Town resident I also noted the locals don't seem very upset. I guess dozens of hurricanes and tropical storms tend to put things in perspective.

I do hope as much effort is put into cleaning the beachfront rock groins, the jetties, and the rocks at Seawolf as is put into cleaning sandy beaches and grassy estuaries. Maybe this is already happening, but since some of those areas are still closed to the public, I can't tell what is being done.

Hopefully the most modern and effective biological techniques are being used, as opposed to volunteers with wire brushes...

It is my guess that local (Island) contractors like T&T and local MSRP vessel played key roles down in the nitty-gritty of the spill response.

If that is correct, a profile of their work would be an excellent subject of a newspaper article.

It was no doubt greatly helpful that the representatives of government who showed up on scene evidently had their heads screwed on straight, and came to do a job, not make politics, thus freeing up actual spill response to respond to the spill, not respond to a litany of accusations, showboating, unnecessary foot dragging and mud slinging.
It's always a pleasure to work with a team that knows what a team is, and acts accordingly...
These guys did a good job all around.
