RADIOACTIVE TUMBLEWEEDS

ADVANCE FOR WEEKEND OF FEB. 10-11 Todd Ponczoch uses a Geiger counter to check tumbleweeds on the Hanford nuclear reservation near Richland, Wash., Monday, March 5, 2001, for radiation. Sometimes the long roots of tumbleweeds at Hanford will absorb radioactive material from underground nuclear waste thus contaminating the plants which may eventually pose a containment problem when they tumble away.
