“My family is driving up these roads every day. To me, it is a danger to the entire area,” says Rose Gardner of Eunice about plans to bring spent nuclear fuel waste to a proposed Lea County storage site. Gardner was among those attending a meeting in Roswell Saturday morning to plan their efforts to oppose the Holtec facility, considered by its proponents to be a benefit to the nation and an economic boon for the region.
