Letters received in past week: 152

Letters published: 60

What's on readers' minds: The Yucca Mountain nuclear waste project dominated the past week's Mailbag. We received 22 letters on the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste project, the majority of them from students at Jefferson Middle School who are studying the issue. We received 12 letters on the Lane County Budget Committee's vote to raise the pay of commissioners by 31 percent; eight on the Bush administration's recent report on global warming and the president's subsequent dismissal of it, six on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' drawdown of Cougar Reservoir and its impact on the McKenzie River and six responses to a June 5 letter by Mark F. Oldham calling for a campaign against hate radio. We also got five letters each on the West Eugene Parkway, Palestinian-Israeli violence in the Middle East, the proposed "Health Care for All - Oregon" ballot measure and the $8.5 billion shortfall in the Oregon Public Employees Retirement System.
