Oil on Alabama beaches worst since spill By JAy rEEVES AnD rAy HEnry Associated Press

Dave Martin/Associated Press

Crude oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill washes ashore Saturday in Orange Beach.

ORANGE BEACH — Alabama’s beaches took their worst hit yet from an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday as globs of crude and gooey tar — some the size of pancakes — lined the white sands and crews worked to try to keep a giant oil sheen just a few miles away from reaching the shore. Scientists have estimated that anywhere

between about 40 million gallons to 109 million gallons of oil have gushed into the Gulf since a drilling rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers and triggering the worst oil spill in U.S. history. The oil washing up on Alabama’s shores was the heaviest since the rig explosion and came just as the summer beach season was picking up. During a flight over the Gulf, Sean Brumley, an aerial spotter, said he saw an oily

sheen and brown patches of oil floating for miles off the Alabama coast. Boats trying to remove the oil before it hit the coast worked about three miles out. “The Gulf looks like it has chicken pox,” Brumley said. The oily sheen covered the pass leading into Perdido Bay near the Alabama-Florida state lines. Globs of brown oil floated in Please see OiL ❙ Page 11A

New director fills hole in local charity Sister Jane O’Connor assumes leadership of Center of Concern By DAniEL gADDy Star Staff Writer

wEATHEr, 12A

From top left: Councilman Ben Little, Mayor Gene Robinson, ViceMayor John Spain, Councilman Herbert Palmore and Councilman David Dawson during last Tuesday’s City Council meeting.

Sister Jane O’Connor, the new director of a long-standing charitable organization in Anniston, fires a quick response when asked about her predecessor. “I’m taking her position, but I could never fill her shoes,” she said. O’Connor recently took over Sister Mary Roy’s duties at the All Saints Interfaith Center of Concern. The organization helps Anniston residents in need of food, clothing and financial assistance. Roy served as director of the center for 27 years, earning in that time not just accolades from other civic leaders but also a ceremonial “Key to the City” and The Anniston Star’s 2009 Citizen of the Year Award. “She [Roy] is the nearest thing to a saint we’re going to find in this lifetime,” said Charles Doster, advisory board member of the Center of Concern. “She is the Mother Teresa of Anniston, but saying that brings out the worst in her.”

Stephen Gross/The Anniston Star

Sister Jane O’Connor took over Sister Mary Roy’s responsibilities at the All Saints Interfaith Center of Concern in Anniston. Roy left the center after breaking her hip in March. She relocated to the Connecticut headquarters of her order, the Daughters of the Holy Spirit, where she receives medical care. O’Connor said she hopes to meet the needs of her clients with the same compassion and love Roy displayed. “I feel like I’m treading in the joys

and sorrows of all she experienced here,” she said. Robin Gladd, office manager of the center, said O’Connor eased into her new job as if it was second nature. “She just took it and started running with it,” she said. “She’s given them hope and spiritual guidance. I think they’re walking out of here better than when they came in.” O’Connor said her success is due directly to the work of staff members like Gladd and Sandra Hall, the assistant director of the center. “They’ve been very helpful and very friendly; I couldn’t do it without them,” O’Connor said. In addition to food and clothing, the nonprofit Center of Concern also provides financial assistance with medical bills, prescriptions, utilities and transportation for those in need. O’Connor transferred to the center from St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Prattville, where she served as a pastoral assistant. However, she was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and reared in Washington, D.C. and Maryland. She has a master’s degree in religious education and has worked in Catholic social services in Philadelphia as well as parishes in Virginia and Mississippi. Please see DirECTOr ❙ Page 11A

Oil on Alabama beaches worst since spill By JAy rEEVES AnD rAy HEnry Associated Press

Dave Martin/Associated Press

Crude oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill washes ashore Saturday in Orange Beach.

ORANGE BEACH — Alabama’s beaches took their worst hit yet from an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday as globs of crude and gooey tar — some the size of pancakes — lined the white sands and crews worked to try to keep a giant oil sheen just a few miles away from reaching the shore. Scientists have estimated that anywhere

between about 40 million gallons to 109 million gallons of oil have gushed into the Gulf since a drilling rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers and triggering the worst oil spill in U.S. history. The oil washing up on Alabama’s shores was the heaviest since the rig explosion and came just as the summer beach season was picking up. During a flight over the Gulf, Sean Brumley, an aerial spotter, said he saw an oily

sheen and brown patches of oil floating for miles off the Alabama coast. Boats trying to remove the oil before it hit the coast worked about three miles out. “The Gulf looks like it has chicken pox,” Brumley said. The oily sheen covered the pass leading into Perdido Bay near the Alabama-Florida state lines. Globs of brown oil floated in Please see OiL ❙ Page 11A

New director fills hole in local charity Sister Jane O’Connor assumes leadership of Center of Concern By DAniEL gADDy Star Staff Writer

wEATHEr, 12A

From top left: Councilman Ben Little, Mayor Gene Robinson, ViceMayor John Spain, Councilman Herbert Palmore and Councilman David Dawson during last Tuesday’s City Council meeting.

Sister Jane O’Connor, the new director of a long-standing charitable organization in Anniston, fires a quick response when asked about her predecessor. “I’m taking her position, but I could never fill her shoes,” she said. O’Connor recently took over Sister Mary Roy’s duties at the All Saints Interfaith Center of Concern. The organization helps Anniston residents in need of food, clothing and financial assistance. Roy served as director of the center for 27 years, earning in that time not just accolades from other civic leaders but also a ceremonial “Key to the City” and The Anniston Star’s 2009 Citizen of the Year Award. “She [Roy] is the nearest thing to a saint we’re going to find in this lifetime,” said Charles Doster, advisory board member of the Center of Concern. “She is the Mother Teresa of Anniston, but saying that brings out the worst in her.”

Stephen Gross/The Anniston Star

Sister Jane O’Connor took over Sister Mary Roy’s responsibilities at the All Saints Interfaith Center of Concern in Anniston. Roy left the center after breaking her hip in March. She relocated to the Connecticut headquarters of her order, the Daughters of the Holy Spirit, where she receives medical care. O’Connor said she hopes to meet the needs of her clients with the same compassion and love Roy displayed. “I feel like I’m treading in the joys

and sorrows of all she experienced here,” she said. Robin Gladd, office manager of the center, said O’Connor eased into her new job as if it was second nature. “She just took it and started running with it,” she said. “She’s given them hope and spiritual guidance. I think they’re walking out of here better than when they came in.” O’Connor said her success is due directly to the work of staff members like Gladd and Sandra Hall, the assistant director of the center. “They’ve been very helpful and very friendly; I couldn’t do it without them,” O’Connor said. In addition to food and clothing, the nonprofit Center of Concern also provides financial assistance with medical bills, prescriptions, utilities and transportation for those in need. O’Connor transferred to the center from St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Prattville, where she served as a pastoral assistant. However, she was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and reared in Washington, D.C. and Maryland. She has a master’s degree in religious education and has worked in Catholic social services in Philadelphia as well as parishes in Virginia and Mississippi. Please see DirECTOr ❙ Page 11A
