Unit 2 at the Nine Mile Point Nuclear Power Plant shut down on Monday after pumps that circulate water through the reactor shut off while being shifted to a lower speed. Plant officials would not say when the reactor would return to operation. The adjacent Unit 1 reactor was not affected and remains at 100% power. Nine Mile 2 had been operating at about 78% power since last week as crews made repairs to the feedwater heating system. Operators reduced power further on Tuesday to facilitate the repairs. As the unit was powered down, the recirculation pumps were shifted to a lower speed. During the shift, both pumps shut down, which requires an immediate manual shutdown of the reactor. The pumps were then restarted and are operating, but plant officials are still investigating what caused them to fail and what repairs are needed. Once repairs to the equipment are complete, the unit will begin a return to service.
An annual simulated military mission to track Santa Claus and his sleigh on Christmas Eve is drawing criticism from some child advocates because of website images showing a fighter jet escort. A website called NORAD Tracks Santa at www.noradsanta.org has added a view of an animated fighter escort for Santa and his reindeer-powered sleigh. Media reports including the Boston Globe and Fox News are noting opposition from a psychologist and the Boston-based Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood, which says that associating Santa with the military is completely out of line for children. A spokesperson for EADS, the Griffisspark-based Air National Guard facility that monitors air traffic over the eastern U.S. stated that the facility has been taking part in Santa-tracking exercises for over 25 years & adding the fighter escort was part of theireffort to give the program more of an operational feel.
