Dan Petersen works on improving his sun tan, as about 75 people gather in "Hands Across the Sand" at Lake Michigan, to "comment, not protest" about the BP oil spill Saturday June 26, 2010 at North Beach in Racine, Wis. They called for clean energy, and heard Mayor John Dickert tell them that he and other mayors insisted last week that the Environmental Protection Agency come up with a proactive clean-up plan to deal with any break-up of an oil tanker on Lake Michigan because such an accident could affect Racine's only natural supply of drinking water.
