Nuclear Energy: Is it worth it?

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 5:45PM

In an era of depleting natural resources and energy supplies, the world has finally begun to look to other sources to provide our booming population with its power needs. Candidates for the next main power source are mostly environmentally based, such as tidal, solar and wind power. Another prospective source comes from nuclear energy; strong and mighty. Nuclear energy, aside from being able to provide a large quantity of power for our disposal, is too unstable and harmful to be used with minimal damage to the environment and to the human race.

This week in history from The Arlington Times archives

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:52PM

• Lakewood School District Superintendent Kristine McDuffy officially began her new job July 2, but she started it without a desk. "I think they're going to put me back there," she said, pointing to the back of the district administrative building. At the top of McDuffy's list of ideas is the formation of a district advisory council, something that she had been discussing for several years with outgoing superintendent Wayne Robertson. The district council would "help construct a diverse perspective and inform people about how the district operates," said McDuffy. She hopes the district advisory council will include parents, students, staff, members of the community. "If a business person asks, 'Why are we spending this?' these questions and different perspectives can add value. That's what I'm looking to do add value at the district level."
