Officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency briefed people at a meeting last night in Battle Creek about the continuing clean-up of the Kalamazoo River oil spill.  EPA officials say they've finished cleaning up 50 sites in the river. 

Last July, an oil pipeline leaked more than 800,000 gallons of oil into the river near Marshall, MI.  The pipeline, which is owned by Enbridge Energy, has since been restarted and oil is again running.
