But beneath the grass lies a more insidious legacy of the park’s industrial past: toxic waste.

“Just offshore, the sediments are contaminated by oily substances that have oozed from the land into the lake,” says Ching-Pi Wang, with the Department of Ecology. And that’s not all: Benzene, arsenic, lead, and other substances pollute the soil, groundwater, and lake sediment.

And then, Joglar decided he was done. "I was starting to feel comfortable," he t…

Now the husband-and-wife economists say they have a better understanding of what's causing these "deaths of despair" by suicide, drugs and alcohol. In a follow-up to their groundbreaking 2015 work , they say that a lack of steady, well-paying…
