In this April 3, 2008 file photo, a sign warns of radiation on the Hanford nuclear reservation near Richland, Wash. In a remote pocket of the Northwest, World War II weapons production and storage built a booming economy that continued through the Cold War and into cleanup and disposal of nerve gas, plutonium and radioactive waste. Those activities are wrapping up at northeast Oregon's Umatilla Chemical Depot and southeast Washington's Hanford nuclear reservation, meaning a change for a region whose economy has long been fueled by federal dollars.
