TVA’s chief operating officer and No. 2 man, 60-year-old William R. “Bill” McCollum Jr., announced he will retire on June 30.

McCollum’s retirement comes on the heels of a number of nuclear problems coming to light at all three of the utility’s operating nuclear plants.

But during a conference call today, McCollum, noting the utility’s nuclear performance “continues to improve every day,” danced around a question of whether the problems prompted him to retire sooner than he might have.

“I’m making the decision for me as far as my retirement is concerned,” he said.

McCollum, an electrical and nuclear engineer, joined the Tennessee Valley Authority in April 2007.

Why don't you use quotes for him "dancing around questions", 'cause I don't see how you can say that with, “I’m making the decision for me as far as my retirement is concerned”. Another piece from Pam Sohn, with nothing but negative ASSumptions directed towards TVA with absolutely no basis. If that's what this paper is looking sensationalize ordinary news...well, you got a real winner here, in Pam Sohn. Personally, I think its a real shame.
