Authorities battled the Gulf of Mexico's massive oil spill with sweat, steel and fire

Authorities battled the Gulf of Mexico's massive oil spill with sweat, steel and fire Wednesday as patches of oil crept to within two miles of the Louisiana bayous.

An oyster fisherman spotted a large patch of oil sheen near the border between St. Bernard and Plaquemines parishes, about 40 miles southeast of New Orleans, Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser said.

Two Arizona cities to sue over immigration law

CNN Wire Staff

The city councils in two of Arizona's largest cities have voted to file suit over the state's controversial new immigration law, which allows police to ask anyone for proof of legal U.S. residency.

The Tucson City Council voted 5-1 to file suit, and the city council in Flagstaff approved a similar measure 7-0. Both votes occurred Tuesday.

Members of the Phoenix Suns basketball team, meanwhile, plan to wear jerseys that say "Los Suns" in a playoff game Wednesday as "a way for our team and our organization to honor our Latino community," managing partner Robert Sarver said in a statement.

Opposition to the law continued Wednesday, with some civil rights and labor organizations saying they will announce a boycott Thursday.

Oil spill puts Gulf Coast tourism in limbo

Marnie Hunter
CNN

"Wait and see" seems to be the mantra for travelers and businesses getting ready for high season on the Gulf Shore's popular beaches.

Tammy Messmer and her family have made a tradition of traveling from Missouri to enjoy the pristine white sand and emerald waters of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, but an amorphous mass of oil looming offshore has the family worried.

"We're still on the fence," said Messmer, 38. "We're praying and hoping that they get this under control."

If the oil comes ashore, the family may have to cancel a June visit and head to the beach on the other side of Florida, Messmer said.

"If it does hit the beach, we can't take the kids there. It would be kind of a wasted trip because that's what they like to do is play on the beach."

Does the oil spill put seafood restaurants at risk?

About 40 percent of the U.S. seafood is harvested from the Gulf Coast

About 40 percent of the U.S. seafood is harvested from the Gulf Coast

The "single best bite of food" in Louisiana, according to Tommy Cvitanovich, is the charbroiled oyster soaked in butter, garlic and cheese. Then the tough little mollusk is grilled to a smoky perfection.

His two restaurants, both named Drago's, served 3 million of these delectable oysters last year.

Cvitanovich continues to serve the popular oysters to his customers. But with the oil spill disaster looming toward the Gulf Coast waters abundant with seafood, he and other restaurant owners are bracing for the worst possibilities: a shortage of seafood, price hikes and a public misperception that Louisiana seafood is dangerous.
