Cleaning Up Hanford
Aubrey Callahan, 17, avoids balls thrown from competitors on Friday, Feb. 24, 2012 during a dodge ball tournament at Richland High School in Richland, Wash. Near the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, the high school adopted a mushroom cloud as its mascot and students are known as the "Bombers." The communities closest to the Hanford site comprise a science and technology hub that is among the fastest-growing regions in the country, where Hanford cleanup and a national laboratory drive the economy.
