Nuclear dinosaur
To the editor: Big business has dominated this country and its politics too long. The Benton-Carroll-Salem School District didn’t complain when Republicans gave big tax cuts to corporations and schools lost millions.
Now we are supposed to subsidize two dinosaur nuclear power plants because FirstEnergy didn’t invest in clean energy.
A guest editorial in the April 22 issue of The Press criticized the subsidies offered through tax breaks to purchase electric vehicles but there is zero pollution from electric cars. Carbon dioxide from cars burning gas and coal-burning power plants are killing the planet.
Nuclear energy produces nuclear waste which nobody wants in their back yard.
A final gripe. Who is paying off our members of council in the City of Oregon? We have a proposal to pay $3 million rent with an option to buy the former Kmart property on Navarre Avenue for possible future development. Every community in the U.S. wants development but with no commitments all we are doing is wasting tax dollars.

Help for stuttering
To the editor: I’d like to ask your readers: Do you stutter? Do you know someone who does? Most people do. More than three million Americans and 70 million people across the globe stutter, but sadly it is still quite misunderstood. Help us change that.
May 13-19 is National Stuttering Awareness Week. To support the stuttering community, the nonprofit Stuttering Foundation launched a new website with easy-to-find information like articles, brochures, magazines, videos, research reports and counselor referrals, with a new laptop- and mobile-friendly interface.
The Stuttering Foundation has accurate, trusted information about stuttering and free help on its new website-- StutteringHelp.org.
Please take a look and tell a friend.
Jane Fraser
President, Stuttering Foundation
