Toxic Topics 

The Kansas City Plant, where non-nuclear components for nuclear bombs are made, is scaling back production and moving all the assembly from Bannister and Troost to a site near the former Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base. Members of an organization called PeaceWorks KC are concerned that workers vacating the old site will leave behind beryllium dust, PCBs, acidic and alkaline liquids, solvents, oils, coolants, and low-level radioactive waste.Distressing? Come to PeaceWorks KC's public hearing tonight at 7 at the All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church (4501 Walnut). Contact Donna Constantineau at 913-281-5499 for more information. Peaceworks KC
