Nuclear reactor active in Sacramento County

SACRAMENTO - A small reactor, once used to check corrosion in the wings of F-111 fighter jets, is now being used for everything from making medical isotopes to training future nuclear technicians. SLIDESHOW: Inside the reactor

"We make iodine-125, which is used to treat prostate cancer," said McClellan Nuclear Research Center Director Barry Klein, Ph.D, as he sat in the control room of the TRIGA training reactor.

First operational in 1990, the former Air Force reactor was used the first 10 years for focused neutron beams to check for wing damage.

In 2000, after McClellan Air Force Base closed, the reactor was taken over by UC Davis at what had become the McClellan Business Park.

Citrus Heights teen in critical condition after hit and run

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA - The family of a Del Campo High School senior calls it a miracle that he was even found after being hit by a vehicle walking home early Sunday morning.

"We ask everyone for prayers, because Allen really needs them right now," Wright's God-aunt, Debbie Lee, said. "To see him lying in a hospital bed, with a respirator, in a coma, it's just wrong."

Josh Hart, who is the brother-in-law of 18-year-old Allen Wright, said the teen had left a friend's house a little after midnight to walk home. His cousin was to meet him halfway.

Allen was talking on his cell phone to Nick, the friend, when Nick said he heard Allen say "Oh, s___!" and then the sound of cars going by. Nick said he stayed on the phone about four minutes not hearing anything else from Allen, just the sounds of traffic.
