FILE - In this Saturday, Feb. 24, 2007 file photo, tourists walk the south beach of Jekyll Island, Ga. A decades-old state law passed to protect Jekyll Island's unspoiled beaches, salt marshes and maritime forests seems simple enough, limiting development of hotels, golf courses and other amenities to just 35 percent of the island's land area. But a task force assigned to make recommendations about the coastal state park's future has raised questions that the 1971 law fails to answer clearly: Exactly how large is the island? And what should be counted as land? (AP Photo/Stephen Morton, File)
