ADVANCE FOR USE TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 2011 AND THEREAFTER - In this photo taken Tuesday, Dec. 14, 2010 retiree Bob Scamen points over his frozen pond in Braidwood, Ill. to the Braidwood Nuclear Power Station in Braceville, Ill. about 50 miles southwest of Chicago. Scamen has worked there and other plants as a pipefitter and welder, sometimes fixing corroded pipes. An outlet from Braidwood's leaky discharge pipe 300 feet from his property poured out three million gallons of water in 1998, according to an NRC inspection report. Scamen didn't realize the discharge was radioactive. He and his wife no longer intend to pass the property on to their grandchildren for fear of hurting their health. The couple just wants out. But the only offer so far is from a buyer who left a note on the front door saying he'd pay the fire-sale price of $10,000. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast) less
