For the towns and cities that could be hit by the proposed new rounds of military base closings, Aroostook County in northernmost Maine has some advice: Don't panic.

With a population of 10,000, including dependents, it was, in effect, the biggest "city" in Aroostook.

Radiation that contaminated a dozen workers at a U.S. air base came from radon gas that accumulated naturally and not from the improper disposal of nuclear weapons, the Air Force said Sunday. The discovery means the workers, who were contaminated at Loring Air Force Base near the Canadian border, are less likely to suffer long-term health problems, Air Force officials said.
