Your story on the "downwinders" who were exposed to large amounts of radiation from the Hanford Nuclear plant in Washington was alarming ("How Dare They! Atom Critics Cry," Part A, July 14). Not because of the government information recently released, but because of the prevailing sheep-like attitude that the residents have toward the facility and its effects. For years, environmental and nuclear experts have warned the local residents of the impending problems caused by the Hanford plant, including the radioactive debris released into the air and waste water dumped into the river.

BUSINESS

Pax Publishing, a tiny newsletter production company, is a rare animal indeed--a business that gives its profits away. Some might say it's not really a business at all. The 2-year-old organization is chartered as a nonprofit public benefit corporation, though it does not have tax-exempt status. And the company works only for other nonprofit organizations, charging them bargain-basement rates for producing newsletters, brochures and direct-mail pieces.

Both staff members--Richard Hamel, 26, of Santa Ana and Jacqueline Robinson, 68, of Brea--were released on their own recognizance.

The front page read "Wilson to Give 15% Tax Cut," (Jan. 10). Is he out of his gubernatorial mind? The recession has not left the majority of Californians, the state treasury is broke, essential services are being cut or eliminated, and Pete Wilson wants to undermine the financial health of California by giving us a post-election placebo? This is the wrong time for a tax cut. I know that this may not be the most popular view but, if anything, taxes need be raised, not lowered. A hundred dollars or so a year per person won't make that much difference to an individual, but it will go a long way toward educating our children and funding our cities.
OPINION
December 13, 1987
For the right-wing fringes of this country, this agreement will not benefit their interest in excessive firepower and defense industry profits, but for moderates, liberals and the average person on the street, this treaty will serve as the beginning of a whole new future. Just think of it. Young people will be less likely to fear the possibility of extinction from the effects of thermonuclear war. For over 10 years now, the movement to eliminate the nuclear arms race could only hope to freeze the size of the world nuclear arsenals, let alone see significant reductions.

When a cadre of aerospace engineers and Defense Department officials gather at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station for three days of classified meetings starting Tuesday, an estimated 2,000 protesters will be ready for them.

Three anti-nuclear activists have been charged with malicious mischief and vandalism for painting silhouettes on a Seal Beach street more than four months ago to dramatize the effects of a nuclear holocaust, one of the defendants said Tuesday. Elizabeth Crawford of Santa Ana, Richard Hamel of Santa Ana and Marion Pack of Corona, president of the Orange County chapter of Alliance for Survival, were summoned to appear before an Orange County Harbor Municipal Court judge on Jan. 10, Crawford said.
