GOVERNMENT: 4 1/2 months after break-in, there’s still a hole in Y-12′s fence. “Four and a half months after Plowshares protesters broke into the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant, it appears that government contractors have yet to repair the fence where the initial entry took place. Earlier today, the News Sentinel visited the plant’s perimeter fence line on Pine Ridge and photographed a section where the chain-link fence apparently had been cut — about 4 1/2 feet vertically. There also was what may be telltale evidence — a white plastic tie and a piece of string — of the protesters’ handiwork.”
