"'You're a traitor to this town, Turner! If that nuclear plant closes, we'll all be out of jobs.' Ned listened to the angry voices shouting at his dad. Why couldn't they understand? His dad, a State Representative, was still for nuclear energy, but he wanted to make sure there wouldn't be another near nuclear disaster. How could the people here in Wilkenton forget so soon, so easily? The siren tests had been only a minor annoyance - like a fire drill - until that night when the sirens screamed at 2:oo a.m. Ned knew when he heard them that it was the real thing - an accident at the plant!"
