A "never heard of" agency gets BP Millions

     Governor Bentley tells al.com's George Talbot that he has never heard of the non-profit environmental group that will decide how to use the BP Criminal penalty imposed because of the massive oil spill of two years ago.
     There is nobody from Alabama on the group's board of directors. But the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation has been working in the Gulf for two decades.
     Alabama will receive about 1/10 of the almost $2.4-Billion penalty. About $335-Million. But the money will be spent as the NFWF decides.
     There are longtime Alabama Gulf Environmental groups that need to be sharpening their grant-writing skills this second.
     This will be a food fight of majestic proportions.
