    In the News
    Exxon Valdez sold, likely destined for scrap heap
    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The ship formerly known as the Exxon Valdez appears destined to become a scrap heap in a shipyard along India's Gulf of Cambay.

    Just days before the 23-year anniversary of the ship's oil spill that devastated the fishing industry and environment of Prince William Sound, Alaska, Hong Kong-based Best Oasis Ltd. confirmed Friday that it bought the ship for an undisclosed amount.

    Stan Jones, spokesman for Prince William Sound Regional Citizens' Advisory Council, says two words sum up his and most residents' feeling about the news: good riddance.

    Scott Pegau was a student in Fairbanks in 1989, but he now operates research programs for the Oil Spill Recovery Institute in Cordova. He says herring, otters, sea ducks and a killer whale pod are still impacted by the spill.

    ******************************
    Poor ship - It wasn't her fault.
