Those options include finding another operator for Station Two, purchasing wholesale power from the market, or retiring the plant next spring.Keach said all of Big Rivers’ existing coal supply deals will expire before May 31, 2019 but will continue to own and operate the Wilson coal plants located in western Kentucky.
May 15, 2006 Regular News Bar launches survey of lawyers with disabilities Bar la unches survey of lawyers with disabilities Florida Bar members with disabilities are being asked to participate in the first statewide survey designed to identify the nature and impact of disabilities on the practice of law. The survey will also gather information on accommodations and technical assistance that would enhance the participation of attorneys with disabilities in Florida’s legal community.The goal of the survey is to identify ways to provide full and equal opportunities for lawyers with disabilities in Florida. Bar members must have a registered password to conduct transactional services on the Bar’s Web site to access the survey.The survey is a collaboration of The Florida Bar and the Disability Independence Group (DIG). It was created as a result of the Disability-Diversity Initiative, a statewide study project of 44 lawyers with disabilities conducted by the DIG during 2005. The initiative was designed to enable attorneys with disabilities to identify and discuss disability issues and barriers to participation in professional and Bar activities. One recommendation from that project was to conduct a more comprehensive survey of lawyers with disabilities throughout the State of Florida.The survey is available to Florida Bar members with disabilities online at www.floridabar.org and in print format by contacting the Bar’s Research, Planning and Evaluation Department at (850) 561-5649.Confidential responses will be collated by The Florida Bar. The DIG will analyze the data and develop the final report which will reflect the experiences of all participants and include anecdotal information.Respondents are being asked to answer all relevant questions based on their own experience during the past 10 years. Information from events that occurred earlier can be reported by answering open-ended responses to some questions and, in particular, the last open-ended question which calls for any additional commentary, suggestions or recommendations regarding legal professionals with disabilities.The deadline to submit survey responses is Friday, June 16, 2006, at midnight. Those completing a printed version with return by U.S. mail should allow at least 3-5 days for receipt by the deadline. For more information, lawyers with disabilities should contact Maria Johnson, Member Outreach Coordinator, at (850) 561-5648 or by e-mail [email protected] flabar.org.
