In January 1969, the blowout on an offshore oil platform off the coast of Santa Barbara, California, and the resulting oil spill proved to be a transformative event in pollution control and the nascent environmental activism movement. It accelerated the advancement of federal government policies and would change the way the federal government managed environmental pollution. Over the next three years, Congress worked to pass laws such as the National Environmental Policy Act and the Clean Water Act, and revolutionized the way that the United States dealt with environmental pollution. At the same time, scientists developed methods to detect chemical pollution that had been discharged into rivers and streams by industrial facilities. Slick Policy presents an original and in-depth history of the 1969 Santa Barbara spill. Teresa Sabol Spezio provides a background of water pollution control, government oversight of federally-funded projects, and chemical detection methods in place prior to the spill. She then shows how scientists and politicians used public outrage over the spill to implement wide-ranging changes to federal environmental and science policy, and demonstrates the advancements to offshore oil drilling, pollution technology, and water protection law that resulted from these actions.

Slick Watts arrived in Seattle with nothing but his name, shiny head, headband, and his personality. He remains there to this day--one of the most memorable and likable icons of Seattle sports history. Not only did he win over the his first coach--Bill Russell--he won over an entire city that seemed desperate to embrace a role model with whom it could relate. Watts's sense of style, his humble beginnings, his down-to-earth personality and his determined hustle on the court made him more than a sports hero; he became larger than life. Some say if Watts ran for governor of Washington in the '70s, he would have won. He achieved the impossible: he became bigger than Russell. Watts details how his relationship with Russell deteriorated at the same time that relationships blossomed with Wilt Chamberlain, Walt Frazier, Bill Walton, Bob Lanier, Reggie Jackson, Jessie Jackson, "Pistol" Pete Maravich, and many others. He also reveals how a promising career abruptly ended at the hands of Hall of Fame coach and player Lenny Wilkens. Watts gives an insider's view of how Seattle's first professional sports team evolved through growing pains and into a world champion. In his unique Mississippi dialect, Watts spins tales about teammates, coaches, opponents, and some of the most memorable games in which he participated. He also outlines his journey from an unknown entity to an overnight celebrity--forced to move twice because people were camping outside his house. Much like the way he played the game, Watts combines boundless energy and unexpected entertainment as he spins, jumps, and shoots his way through this collection of tales from Seattle's original hardwood.

A legend among oilmen, Tom Slick was an independent operator in the truest sense. His office was his buggy during his early days of wildcatting the Mid-Continent oil field around 1910. And even after great success brought him to posher surroundings in an Oklahoma City office suite, his style remained hands-on. His impromptu deals were often brokered on street corners and over the telephone in his typical laconic style. Well into the 1920s he was the last of a breed who had no stock holders or board members to answer to, and instead "worked out of his hip pocket." Slick's extraordinary rise paralleled that of the modern petroleum industry. He began his career in the oil fields of western Pennsylvania, the birthplace of the American oil business. Before 1910, he headed west, traveling with his father and brother to the fields of Kansas to work as contract drillers. Slick met with failure in these early years, as he moved on to Oklahoma in an attempt to locate oil. In 1912 he received the financial backing to drill one more well, which turned out to be the discovery well for the vast Cushing Field. This amazing success was followed by more discoveries of fields - a frenzy of acquiring, drilling, then selling that in 1929 culminated with Slick's sale of his Oklahoma holdings in the Prairie Oil and Gas Company - up until that time, the largest sale of oil properties by an individual. In this first biography of Tom Slick, Ray Miles fleshes out the man who, despite his legendary drive - and the high-profile nature of the oil business - was exceedingly private and withdrawn. Miles relies on newspaper accounts, court and business records, correspondence, and personal interviews with family, friends, and associates to render a portrait of one of the most successful and colorful, yet elusive, businessmen of his day.
