Letter to the Editor: Nuclear waste remains active concern in McKinley County

E-mail Print PDF

If Holtec International has its way, high-level radioactive waste (“spent fuel”) from Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant in New York and almost 100 other reactor sites in the U.S. would be transported on America’s highways and brought to southern New Mexico for “interim storage” although in my own view, this is a false narrative that is countered by the example of the Yucca Mountain repository and the site(s) will be permanent.

Permanent because the spent fuel will have to be moved again if another repository site is found. The Yucca Mountain project began in 1982 after the passage of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act that requires “the establishment of a deep geologic...

This week, take a moment to walk outside and experience the freshness of summer. This season is special and requires your attention. When life gets you down take in the benefits of nature and explore the world around you. Madame G recommends you take time to enjoy your life.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Sometimes, it feels as if life is pushing you forward and jerking you around like a washing machine. Anyone can easily become overwhelmed and tired of this constant back-and-forth. You’re not the only one. Instead of forcing yourself away from a certain subject, take a moment to evaluate your thoughts. Care for your feelings, and then you can let them go. Peace.
