The frustration continues.
Dauphin Island Mayor Jeff Collier said we have to manage whatwe've got.

Collier said he continues to see boom coming in and he is hopingthat will continue.
"Our plan is to supplement any crews that are here in place.These people are trained and schooled to clean this up and we areat the mercy that they are going to do their jobs," saidCollier.
