WHEN WILDFIRES GET



OUT OF CONTROL

Fire crews plow their way through the thick Osceola National Forest in order to create and strengthen firelines during the
Bugaboo fire.

Dry conditions lead Division of Forestry to issue caution


By TONY BRITT
tbrtt@tiakecityrepor rer.comr
The mere mention of
the Bugaboo Fire to
Columbia and Baker
County residents con-
jures up memories of
where they were on that spring day
in 2007when 'night' came to Lake
City in the middle of the afternoon.
Forestry officials said conditions
are worse now than back in 2007,
when wildfire smoke and ash dark-
ened the sky. Officials are warning
area residents to be cautious with
prescribed and yard debris burns
because the potential for a fire to get
away has increased due to weather
conditions.
Kurt Wisner, Florida Division of
Forestry wildfire mitigation spe-
cialist with the Suwannee Forestry
Center, said the fire danger level is
critical.
"The risk of wildfire in our area cur-
rently is very high, and it likely will
get worse," he said. "In Florida, we
no longer talk about a 'Fire Season.'
We have wildfires throughout year,
but generally in our area springtime
brings the greatest threat."
Wildfires have burned hundreds
of thousands of acres of property in
Florida and Georgia during the past
few weeks.
In fact, a crew of four local Florida
Division of Forest rangers were dis-
patched to South Georgia last week
to help in an effort to contain some
of the numerous wildfires in the

area..
Wisner said weather conditions
are the reason the fire situation is as
bad as it is.
"During the winter months, we
had a record number of hard freezes,
which cured surface fuels such as
grasses," he said. "Now we are in
a severe drought, which keeps the
vegetation tinder dry. On top of that,
humidity.has been moderate-to-very
low, which is not a good sign when
watching fire conditions. Low humid-
ity coupled with high wind creates a
perfect environment for wildfire."
According to Florida Division
of Forestry records, from Jan. 1


- March 25 forest rangers from the
Suwannee .Forestry Center in Lake
City responded to 189 fires in their
area of responsibility. Those fires
burned a total 679 acres, an average
of 3.6 acres per fire. There were only
95 fires about half as many in
the same period of 2010.
Wisner said district personnel are
proud of the low acres-per-fire rate
because it's the best in the state,
thanks in part to their aggressive.

"Be a Diva for a day"...
While it's a catchy
phrase, this weekend
women will have the oppor-
tunity to shop, get health
screenings, eat chocolate
and be pampered through
the Altrusa .Club of Lake
City fundraiser.
Diva Day is the Altrusa
Club of Lake City's annual
fundraiser and during .this
year's event there will be
38 vendors who will have
displays containing various
items, including jewelry,
candles, handbags, wom-
en's& apparel, soaps, foods,
and more for sale.
"It's geared towards
women," said Jan Smithey,
Altrusa Club of Lake City
president ."It's just a day
for the girls."
Diva Day will take place
from 10 a.m. 2 p.m.

the event are $5 and can be
purchased from the Lake

Altrusa member or at the
door.
Purchasing admittance
tickets will enter attendees
into a drawing where the
first place prize is choice of
a Mariana bracelet or two
Silver VIP tickets to the
Suwannee River Jam.
"All the proceeds go to
local charities in the com-
munity," Smithey said. "At
the end of our fundraiser
we determine what our
funds are and then non-
profit organizations can
submit applications to apply
for the funds."
Last year was the first
time the Altrusa Club of
Lake City held a Spring
Expo where community
vendors were featured.

Organizers are working
hard to bring the communi-
ty out to a beautiful section
of Columbia County for the
second annual Alligator
Lake Spring Festival, said
Loye Barnard, publicity
coordinator.
An early-bird walk starts
the festival from 8-10 a.m.
April 9 at Alligator Lake
Park. The festival is 10 a.m.
to 4 p.m. and sponsored by
Four Rivers Audubon and
Gateway Wildlife Habitat
Organization.
Alligator Lake is the head-
waters for the Ichetucknee
River and the park is a des-
ignated site on the Great
Florida Birding Trail and
a Certified Wildlife Habitat
with the National Wildlife
Federation.
The lake is right in the
middle of. the community
and is being protected by
the state so that certain
pollutants don't go into the
water, Barnard said. Also,


the area is incredibly beau-
tiful with native plants and
wildlife.
"North Florida is blessed
with beautiful landscape
most people don't even
know exists," she said.
Several special guests
will speak on a variety of
topics throughout the festi-
val, Barnard said.
Carol Buie-Jackson is a
habitat steward with the
North Carolina Wildlife
Federation and is National
Wildlife Federation vice
president and co-founder
of the Habitat and Wildlife
Keepers Chapter of the
NCWF. She'll speak from
noon-12:30 p.m. on build-
ing a wildlife habitat in the
backyard.
Ondine Wells,
Ichetucknee Springs Basin
Working Group coordi-
nator for Normandeau
Associations, will speak
from 12:30-1 p.m. about
working with the Lake City
community in taking resto-
ration of the Ichetucknee
Springs from vision to real-
ization. She will also talk
about the importance of

Nickelodeon launches anti-bullying campaign


NEW YORK
he popular children's
television network
Nickelodeon is the latest
voice to raise awareness
of digital bullying.
Nick, the most-watched TV
network among kids ages 2 to 14,
will begin an onr-air public service
campaign Monday featuring some
of its stars offering advice on what
young people should do when con-
fronted with hostile texts, e-mails or
Facebook posts.
The advice offered in one ad
featuring Ashley Argota of 'True
Jackson, VP" and Gage Golighfly of
"The Troop": Sign off the computer;
don't reply to a hostile messenger;
block bullies from access; make a
copy of the message to show to an
adult you trust.
"It's not tattle-telling," Golightly
said. "It's standing up for yourself."
The issue has received national
attention after the suicides of teen-
agers who were cyberbullying
victims. President Barack Obama
held a White House conference on
bullying earlier this month. Nick
is collaborating with the advocacy
group Common Sense Media, which
has also worked with MTV and the
Disney Channel on spreading the
word about the issue.
Miranda Cosgrove and Nathan
Kress of Nick's "ICarly" are also
participating in the campaign, which
will last for two years, said Marva
Smalls, Nick's executive vice presi-
dent for public affairs.

Disney monorail
suit dismissed
ORLANDO A lawsuit
that was brought by the
mother of a Disney World
worker killed during an
accident in 2009 has been
voluntarily dismissed.
Orange County court
records show the suit was
dismissed on March 24,,
but the reason of the dis-
missal was not stated.
Austin Wuennenberg
was killed in July 2009
when the monorail he
was piloting was struck
by a second train that was
driving in reverse due to a

suit claiming that her son's
former boss at Disney
"flippantly" vacated his
duties and created a dan-

i Prosecutors to seek death penalty


ASSOCIATED PRESS
Jorge Barahona sits handcuffed and wearing chains on his
ankles in a Miami-Dade Courtroom Monday.


KELLI KENNEDY
Associated Press

MIAMI Prosecutors
said Monday they would
seek the death penalty for
a Miami couple accused in
the slaying of their 10-year-
old adopted daughter, who
was found dead in the back
of her father's pickup truck
while her brother sat in the
front seat badly burned by
chemicals.
Jorge Barahona, dressed
in a green suicide watch
vest exposing his bare
arms, wept as he was
led handcuffed into the
courtroom. He sat several
seats away from his wife,
Carmen, who looked com-
posed but frail.
"He's extremely emotion-
ally unstable right now,"
his attorney Edith Georgie
said. "He's. been crying the
whole time."


Both have pleaded not
guilty to 18 charges includ-
ing first-degree murder for
the death of their adopted
daughter Nubia and several
aggravated child abuse and
neglect charges related to
her and her twin brother,
Victor.
Authorities said the
couple, who became the
twins' foster parents in
2004, beat the twins with
a shoe, whip or broom,
bound their hands and
feet, and locked them in a
bathroom, sometimes for
days. Police believe Nubia
was beaten to death Feb.
11. On Valentine's Day, her
body was found stuffed in
plastic bags and doused
in a toxic chemical in the
back of Jorge Barahona's
truck along the side of a
busy highway. He is also
charged with mutilating

sit in a corner of a room
for hours, according to an
indictment handed down
last week. Jorge Barahona
was charged with punching
Victor in the lip, causing
permanent disfigurement.
The judge on Monday
set a tentative trial date for
July.
The Department of


Children and Families
has also -been scrutinized
because workers ignored
warnings from school offi-
cials that the girl was being
abused. The couple were
the subject of several abuse
allegations before Nubia
was killed.
A principal and teacher
warned in 2007 that Nubia
was stealing food, appeared
very thin and was afraid of
her mother. School officials
also said Nubia told them
Carmen Barahona hit her.
But that information never
made it to a child welfare
psychologist who told the
judge the Barahonas were
wonderful foster parents
and recommended they be
allowed to adopt the twins.

small," he said. "There are
exceptions, but our num-
bers tell a solid story."
He said the part of the
story they want to change
is that 34 percent of their
fires this year have been
started by people not being
careful when burning yard
trash.
'"That's folks 'thinking'
the fire was out when it
wasn't, or stepping inside
'for just a second' to get a
cool drink," Wisner said.
"One moment of careless-


ness is all it takes to start a
wildfire."
Forestry officials are tak-
ing a proactive role to be
vigilant against wildfire in
the area.
'"The Division of Forestry
is always vigilant, but with
conditions as they are, we'
have to be 'spring-loaded' to
respond to any brush fire,"
Wisner said. "Our Center
stays in contact with our
fire suppression partners
and forest industry coop-
erators to keep everyone

Alligator Lake Park is
located at 420 SE Alligator
Glen.
"You can learn how to
properly fertilize garden
plants," Barnard said. "If
you're not interested in
native plants, you can learn
how to take care of other
plants so they don't leak
fertilizers into the aqui-
fer. You can enjoy being


abreast of fire situations
and current conditions."
In addition, he said they
monitor emergency radios
for any report of brush fire
even if they aren't initially
called. They get underway
before forestry assistance
is requested, which allows
them to start suppression
efforts while the fire is
small and maintain a great-
er chance of containing the
fire.
"Vigilance also means


keeping our firefighters
safe, and our equipment
in peak condition," Wisner
said. "The third leg of vigi-
lance is getting the word
out to our citizens to make
sure they understand just
how dangerous the con-
ditions are. People who
have been in our area for
any length of time are well
aware just how fast fire
conditions can go downhill
and how fast wildfire can
spread."

Bracket-busting
wonders headed
for Houston.
By EDDIE PELLS
Associated Press
All the top seeds have
gone home, all the "smart
money" is down the tubes
and millions of brackets are
in the trash.
Even in the unpredictable
world of March Madness,
this is a Final Four nobody
could have imagined. .
Kentucky, Connecticut,
Butler and Virginia
Commonwealth fill out a
Final Four that, by most
ways of looking at it, is the
most unimaginable in the
history of an NCAA tourna-
ment that has never lacked
surprises.
In one game in Houston
on Saturday, No. 4 seed
Kentucky will play No. 3
Connecticut. In the other,
it will be No. 11 Virginia
Commonwealth against No.
8 Butler.
Kentucky emerged from

NEW YORK All four
coaches in the NIT semi-
finals gathered for pho-
tos Monday, three wear-
ing snappy suits and ties.
Anthony Grant sported a
red Alabama pullover.
If the Crimson Tide
coach wanted to remind
everyone which team was
his, there was good rea-
son. Grant took as many
questions if not more
- about his former squad
at Virginia Commonwealth
than his current one from
Tuscaloosa.
"I'm the coach at
Alabama," he patiently
reminded reporters.
He spent three seasons
on the Rams' sideline,
guiding them to a pair of
NCAA tournaments and a
first-round upset of Duke
in 2007 before bolting for a
bigger job at Alabama two
years ago.
His new team is at
Madison Square Garden,
where it plays Colorado
today in the semifinal.
Wichita State faces


Washington State in the

*Alabama (24-11) goes for
its initial NIT title in its
sixth trip to the semifinals.
A national power in foot-
ball, the Tide is trying to
build some basketball suc-
cess behind freshman point
guard Trevor Releford,
sophomore forward Tony
Mitchell and 6-foot-8 junior
JaMychal Green.
Alabama has won 19 of
its last 24 games includ-
ing a victory over Final
Four participant Kentucky.

through big chunks of the
season, suffering from the
predictable hangover after
what was supposed to be a
once-in-a-lifetime trip to the
Final Four last year.
That one was played in
downtown Indianapolis, a
scant six miles from their
campus.
.This one will be 1,036
miles away in Reliant
Stadium. But the message
is the same. The Bulldogs


are once again proving that
all it takes is good play-
ers and coaching not a
conference, a big school or
a massive arena to com-
pete on the biggest stage in
college sports.
Though UConn and
Kentucky each struggled at
times this season, they've
had Final Four pedigrees
for years (decades when it
comes to the Wildcats) and
they lived up to them this
month.

On All-American
first team, only
Walker remains.
By JIM O'CONNELL
Associated Press
Seniors dominated The
Associated Press All-America
team for the first time in five
years.
Jimmer Fredette of BYU,
Nolan Smith of Duke and
JaJuan Johnson of Purdue,
all seniors, were joined
on the team Monday by
junior Kemba Walker of
Connecticut and freshman
Jared Sullinger of Ohio
State.
It's the most seniors since
four made the 2006 team.
Fredette led the nation in
scoring at 28.5 points per
game while shooting 40.4
percent from 3-point range,
a number more impressive
because of the shots he lets
fly from well behind the
line.
He received all but one
vote from the 65-member
national media panel that
selects the weekly Top 25.
The voting was done before
the NCAA tournament.
He is BYU's first All-
America since Danny Ainge
in 1981.
"If you go out and play
your game and have confi-
dence in yourself, you can
accomplish great things,"
Fredette said. '"That's what-
I've always said iri miy head,
and its-worked out:".
Smith, who received 61
votes, averaged 21.3 points,
4.6 rebounds and 5.2 assists
in leading the Blue Devils
to the top of the polls for 10
weeks this season.
"It's been a long process
for me, just getting better
each year and improving,"
Smith said.
Smith is the fifth
Duke player to be an All-
America since 2000, join-
ing Jason Williams and

Sullinger burst onto to
the national scene by aver-

rebounds while shooting
53.6 percent. The 6-foot-

Walker, Connecticut's first
All-America since Emeka
Okafor in 2004, was "with-
out a doubt the most impor-
tant player to his team this
season. I can't imagine
where we would be without
him."
"It feels good, especial-
ly because I wasn't a pre-
season All-American," said
Walker.
The 6-10 Johnson was
Purdue's inside presence,
averaging 20.5 points, 8.2
rebounds and 2.3 blocks. He
was the first Boilermaker
chosen to the first team
since Glenn Robinson in
1994. Johnson returned to

dered what could be done
about an older co-worker,
"Anita," who she said was
showing "signs of demen-
tia." I would caution her
about making judgments
based on stereotypes of old-
er workers and their health
problems.
Like Anita, I am in my
late 60s. I am also underwa-
ter in my mortgage, which
means I have no nest egg.
Because my husband is un-
employed, my savings have
been depleted. My short-
term memory is poor, and
the meds I am on to help
me function do not improve
my memory.
Anita may not have de-
mentia. She may be suffer-
ing from unbearable worry
and stress. I suggest put-
ting out a hand in friendship
to Anita instead of trying to
diagnose her. FEELING
IT TOO IN RICHMOND,
VA.
DEAR FEELING IT:
Many of my readers felt
this one, and wrote to offer
compassion to Anita as well
as possible explanations for
her slip in job performance.
Read on:
DEAR ABBY: Any-
one experiencing marked
and/or prolonged changes
in mood, function and be-
havior should undergo


have heard the request.
(How can you remember
something if you have nev-
er heard it?)
I encourage "Stumped"
to talk to Anita about hav-
ing her hearing tested. A
hearing aid may be what
she needs to help her per-
form better on the job.
- KNOWS FROM EX-
PERIENCE
DEAR ABBY: As a
manager in the federal gov-
ernment, I had an employ-
ee who worked hard the
majority of her life and did
a great job. Suddenly, her
performance began suffer-
ing. It didn't make sense
to me how she could be so
valuable at one point in her
career, and then couldn't do
the simplest task without
goofing it up.
I sent her to a doctor
for an examination, and we
discovered that this "older
woman" was having mini-
strokes all day long! I was
relieved to be able to retire
her on disability, rather
than destroying her life's
hard work by firing her.
And she was able to get help
for a medical condition she
wasn't aware of. RUTH

HOROSCOPES


SNUFFY SMITH


ZITS


GARFIELD


B.C.


FRANK & ERNEST


ARIES (March 21-
April 19): You can make
moves, contact influential
people and drum up the
support you need to move
forward with your plans. A
positive attitude, coupled
with discipline and hard
work will be difficult for
any competition to beat.

TAURUS (April 20-
May 20): Don't be fooled
by what's not being said.
You have to read between
the lines if you expect to
make the right choice. Don't
let your emotions take over,
especially where, personal
or professional matters are
concerned. **
GEMINI (May21-June
20): Refuse to let your per-
sonal opinion interfere with
a job that requires you to be
totally objective. A personal
relationship has the poten-
tial to cost you profession-
ally if you give in to the de-
mands being made. Focus
on how you can get ahead
financially. *****
CANCER (June 21-
July 22): You can expect
to face opposition and
competition professionally.
However, if you are swift to
develop your special skills
in some small way, it will be
difficult for the competition
to surpass you. Simplic-
ity and moderation are the
keys. ***
LEO (July 23-Aug.


THE LAST WORD
Eugenia Last

22): Your charming, out-
going presentation will
grab the attention of some-
one who can make your life
easier and your pocketbook
grow. Make sure to get ev-
erything in writing. Plan
a little celebration for the
evening hours. ***
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): Put greater emphasis
on your relationships and
your future. Take care of
personal changes that will
give you greater appeal.
Don't spend money impul-
sively in order to win some-
one's favor. Incorporate a
creative idea into a project
and excel. ***
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
22): Rethink your current
personal position and weed
through your emotions.
Once you have deciphered
what's actually going on
between you and a friend,
lover or a family member,
you will be able to put any
obstacles you face behind
you. *****
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-
Nov. .21): Look at every-
thing on your to-do list and
prioritize. Knowing what to
focus on will lead to your
success. Your energy is
high and mustn't be wasted
on trivial pastimes. Love is
in the stars. **


SAGrITARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21): Keep busy
and you'll avoid a clash
.with someone who can
make your life miserable.
You have to remain cutting-
edge if you want to stay
in the game. Ask for help
or attend a seminar that
will keep you up to speed.

CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19): Don't take on
responsibilities that don't
belong to you. It's vital
that you have time for the
projects that will bring you
the highest return. Love is
looking favorable, so social-
ize if you are single or have
a romantic evening with
your current partner. ***
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18): You've got a lot
more going for you than
you realize. Good fortune
awaits -fi all you have to do
is forge ahead in the direc-
tion that beckons you the
most. Turn something you
enjoy doing into a sideline
business. ***
PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20): Don't be afraid
to put a little aggression
behind your feelings, espe-
cially when dealing with a
project you want to pursue.
You can convince whoever
is in charge to give you a
chance. A love interest may
throw you off your game.
Don't let business and plea-
sure cause a conflict. ***

LAKE CITY REPORTER WORLD & STATE TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011


PSC commissioners approved for reappointment


Replace ones rejected
because they voted
against rate increases.

JAMES L ROSICA
Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE A Florida
Senate committee has approved
the state's four public service
commissioners who are up for
reappointment.
The Communications, Energy,
and Public Utilities committee
unanimously recommended
Eduardo Balbis, Ronald Brise and
Julie Imanuel Brown to keep their
seats on Florida's utility-regulat-
ing Public Service Commission


after a Monday confirmation
hearing.
Commission Chairman Art
Graham also was approved, with
state Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New
Port Richey, casting the only "no"
vote.
A Senate ethics subcommittee
next will consider the nominees
before the full Senate can vote to
confirm.
The present commissioners
replaced others rejected by the
Senate or a nominating panel after
they voted against rate increases
sought by two power companies.
The commission regulates
electric, natural gas and water
and sewer utilities, and reviews
and approves proposed rate


increases.
During the hearing, Fasano
criticized Graham over reports
that Graham socialized with exec-
utives of the Aqua America water
utility, which., has a rate increase
pending before the commission.
Graham told the committee
he was attending a conference
in Washington, D.C., last month
and was waiting in a hotel lobby
for a dinner companion. He said
he ran into the executives and
had a half-hour conversation with
them.
"Do you think people have
trust in you, knowing that you're
having drinks or speaking with an
Aqua representative?" he asked
Graham.


The chairman said just because
a utility asks for a rate increase
doesn't mean ift's going to get
one.
"I'm never going to do any-
thing to put this commission in
a bad light," he said. "It's truly
unfortunate it has become an
issue like this."
"Ift's gotten to this point because
you decided (to talk with) a rep-
resentative from a company that
has a rate case pending before
the commission," Fasano shot
back.
He then asked Graham to
recuse himself from the rate
case.
"Perception is everything,"
Fasano said. "People are going to


look at this and say, it's the same
game in Tallahassee."
State Sen. Evelyn Lynn, R-
Daytona Beach, said she was
voting for Graham, but called it
"poor judgment" for him to have
gotten into any conversation with
the company representatives.
"You remained there knowing
it was highly unacceptable," she
said. "You have to take responsi-
bility, and I have not heard that
yet."
The four commissioners at
Monday's hearing were appoint-
ed by.then-Gov. Charlie Crist and
reappointed by Gov. Rick Scott
A fifth commissioner, Lisa Polak
Edgar, is not up for reappoint-
ment until next year.


More radioactive water spills at Japan nuclear plant


SHINO YUASA
Associated Press

TOKYO Workers
discovered new pools of
radioactive water leak-
ing from Japan's crippled
nuclear complex, officials
said Monday, as emer-
gency crews struggled to
pump out hundreds of tons
of contaminated water and
bring the plant back under
control.
Officials believe the con-
taminated water has sent
radioactivity levels soaring
at the coastal complex and
caused more radiation to
seep into soil and seawater.
Crews also found traces
of plutonium in the soil
outside of the complex on
Monday, but officials insist-
ed there was no threat to
public health.
Plutonium a key
ingredient in nuclear weap-
ons is present in the fuel
at the complex, which has
been leaking radiation for
over two weeks, so experts
had expected some to be
found once crews began
searching for evidence of it
this week.
Tokyo Electric Power
Co. official Jun Tsftruoka
said only two of the plutoni-
um samples taken Monday
were from the leaking reac-
tors. The other three were
from earlier nuclear tests.
Years of weapons testing in
the atmosphere left trace
amounts of plutonium in
many places around the
world.
The Fukushima Dai-ichi
power plant, 140 miles
(220 kilometers) north-
east of Tokyo, was crippled
March 11 when a tsunami
spawned by a powerful
earthquake slammed into
Japan's northeastern coast.
The huge wave engulfed

much of the complex,
and destroyed the crucial
power systems needed to
cool the complex's nuclear
fuel rods.
Since then, three of the
complex's six units are
believed to have partially
melted down, and emer-
gency crews have strug-
gled with everything from
malfunctioning pumps to
dangerous spikes in radia-
tion that have forced tem-
porary evacuations.
Confusion at the plant
has intensified fears that
the nuclear crisis will last
weeks, months or years
amid alarms over radiation
making its way into pro-
duce, raw milk and even
tap water as far away as
Tokyo.
The troubles at the-
Fukushima complex have
eclipsed Pennsylvania's
1979 crisis at Three Mile
Island, when a partial melt-
down raised fears of wide-
spread radiation release,
but is still well short of
the 1986 Chernobyl disas-
ter, which killed at least
31 people with radiation


sickness, raised long-term
cancer rates, and spewed
radiation across much of
the northern hemisphere.
While parts of the
Japanese plant has been
reconnected to the power
grid, the contaminated
water which has now
been found in numerous
places around the complex,
including the basements of
several buildings must
be pumped out before elec-
tricity can be restored to
the cooling system.
That has left officials
struggling .with two some-
times-contradictory efforts:
pumping in water to keep
the fuel rods cool and
pumping out and then
safely storing contami-
nated water.,
Hidehiko Nishiyama,
a spokesman for Japan's
Nuclear and Industrial
Safety Agency, called that
balance "very delicate
work."
He also said workers
were still looking, for safe
ways to store the radioac-
tive water.
"We are exploring all


means," he said.
The buildup of radioac-
tive water first became a
problem last week, when it
splashed over the boots of
two workers, burning them
and prompting a temporary
suspension of work.
Then on Monday, officials
with Tokyo Electric Power
Co., which owns and runs
the complex, said that work-
ers had found more radioac-
tive water in deep trenches
used for pipes and electrical
wiring outside three units.
The contaminated water
has been emitting radiation
exposures more than four
times the amount that the
government considers safe
for workers.
The five workers in the
area at the time were not
hurt, said TEPCO spokes-
man Takashi Kurita.
Exactly where the water
is coming from remains
unclear, though many sus-
pect it is cooling water that
has leaked from one of the
disabled reactors.
It could take weeks to
pump out the radioactive
water, said Gary Was, a
nuclear engineering pro-
fessor at the University of
Michigan.
"Battling the contamina-
tion so workers can work
there is going to be an
ongoing problem," he
said.
Meanwhile, new read-
ings showed ocean con-
tamination had spread
about a mile (1.6 kilome-
ters) farther north of the
nuclear site than before
but is still within the 12-
mile (20-kilometer) radius
of the evacuation zone.

discovered offshore at a
level 1,150 times higher
than normal, Nishiyama, a,

Nuclear industry

touts safety of

new reactors


MATTI HUUHTANEN
Associated Press

OLKILUOTO, Finland -
Halfway around the globe
from Japan's atomic emer-
gency, engineers building a
cutting-edge nuclear reactor
along Finland's icy shores
insist the same crisis could
never happen here.
And that's not only
because Finland is seismi-
cally stable.
The 1,600-megawatt
European Pressurized
Reactor projected to come
online in 2013 in Olkiluoto,
195 miles (315 kilometers)
northwest of Helsinki, is the
first of its kind expected to
begin operating after the
Japanese disaster.
It has walls thick
enough to withstand an air-
plane crash, components
designed to tolerate the
extreme cold of the Nordic
winter, and decades worth
of new safety systems.
"(We have) so many
backup systems that the
kind of accident like in
Japan could not happen,"
said project manager Jouni
Silvennoinen.
With the renaissance
of nuclear power at stake,


,the atomic industry faces
the challenge of persuad-
ing an increasingly skepti-
cal public that new reactors
like the EPR units being
built by. French company
Areva in Finland, France
and China are not just safer
than the old ones but are
virtually disaster-proof.
The state-controlled
company has marketed its
expensive' new-generation
reactor technology to the
United States and develop-
ing countries from India
to Saudi Arabia and Brazil.
Since news of Japan's catas-
trophe, Areva's shares have
fallen 12.4 percent, trading
at 31.49 midday Friday.
Areva CEO Anne
Lauvergeon has said an
EPR plant would have sur-
vived the earthquake and
tsunami without radiation
leaks. And French Energy
Minister Eric Besson,
whose country gets up to
80 percent of its electric-
ity from nuclear power,
insisted last week it was his
"profound conviction that
nuclear energy will stay in
Europe and the world and
be one of the core energies
in the 21st century."
But that's a tough mes-

sage to sell, with explosions
and radiation leaks at the
Fukushima Dai-ichi plant in
Japan eroding confidence
in nuclear power. That
confidence took decades
to rebuild following the
Soviet Chernobyl disaster
in 1986 and the 1979 Three
Mile Island accident in
Pennsylvania.
Shocked by the Japanese
crisis, the European Union
has called for "stress
tests" for its 143 reactors.
Germany the EU's big-
gest economy has tem-


porarily suspended plans to
prolong the life of its aging
nuclear plants and had
already planned to abandon
nuclear power altogether
over the next 25 years.
President Barack Obama,
while expressing support
for nuclear power, request-
ed a comprehensive review
of the safety of U.S. plants.
Even China, which plans a
massive expansion of nucle-
ar energy, has said it will
hold off on approving new
nuclear plants to allow for a
revision in safety standards.
