Dr. Carl J. Johnson, an early and outspoken critic of the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant, has died of complications from heart surgery. He was 59. Johnson died Thursday at the Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge, said his son, Frederick. Johnson was forced to resign as Jefferson County health director in May, 1981, after his publication of studies showing a higher incidence of cancer in areas of Jefferson and Denver counties close to the Rocky Flats plant 16 miles northwest of Denver.

In Nebraska, promoters of that state's planned radioactive dump were greeted by ranchers toting buckets of feathers and hot tar.
