SEE FULL REPORT HEREOperational Earnings Highlights for Fourth Quarter 2010â ¢ Utility results were lower due to an increase in non-fuel operation and maintenance expense.â ¢ Entergy Wholesale Commodities earnings decreased as a result of lower net revenue and a higher effective income tax rate, partially offset by a gain on sale of an investment.â ¢ Parent & Other results declined due to several individually insignificant items including higher interest expense.‘Once again our businesses delivered strong operational performance and for the sixth year in a row we achieved record operational earnings per share,’ said J. Wayne Leonard, Entergy’s chairman and chief executive officer. ‘Our efforts in 2010 have positioned us for future success. The Utility’s regulatory progress, including rate case settlements in Arkansas and Texas, and future opportunities for productive investments provide one of the best growth stories in the industry. The execution of the reorganization to establish Entergy Wholesale Commodities further enhances our focus on license renewal efforts. And as EWC faces challenging power markets, we are largely hedged in the upcoming years to provide certainty in a bearish environment.’Entergy’s business highlights include the following:â ¢ The Staff of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued its final supplemental environmental impact statement for Indian Point’s proposed 20-year license renewal, concluding that there are no environmental impacts that would preclude license renewal for an additional 20 years of operation.â ¢ The Public Utility Commission of Texas unanimously approved the Entergy Texas rate case settlement.â ¢ In January, Entergy Louisiana received the remaining regulatory approval from the Louisiana Public Service Commission for its proposed acquisition of the Acadia Unit 2 power plant paving the way for a first quarter 2011 closing.

We’ve got depth. We’ve got shooters. We’ve got size. This is the best team we’ve had in a long time.”Six months later, after Syracuse’s (19-15, 10-8 Atlantic Coast) season ended with a loss to Ole Miss (22-13, 10-8 Southeastern) in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament, Boeheim looks foolish for making such proclamations. He knows it, too, and once again backtracked on the words he prematurely let slip out.“I made a mistake,” Boeheim said. “I tried to be optimistic, which you cannot do in this town because people like you and other people go back. I already corrected it 10 times.“On paper, looking at what we had coming in, we looked like we had more talent than we’ve had in a while. That’s exactly what I said. Not in Syracuse basketball history. In a while. After we started playing, I saw right away that we don’t have that kind of a team.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThirty-four games later, SU’s season is over. Five non-conference losses was the most in program history, and SU hadn’t lost 15 games since Roy Danforth finished his first year as head coach in 1968-69. Road struggles plagued the Orange all year as it went 2-11 away from the Carrier Dome, nullifying home wins over then-Top 10 opponents Florida State, Virginia and Duke. Syracuse blew its final chance to leave an impression on the NCAA Tournament selection committee, falling to Miami in the first round of the ACC tournament, essentially sealing its NIT fate.MORE COVERAGE:Tyler Lydon has “no idea” if he’ll be back with Syracuse next seasonSyracuse’s season came to a crashing end on SaturdayGallery: The best sights from SU’s five-point loss to Ole Miss Injuries and unexpected hiccups for fifth-year seniors John Gillon and Andrew White hamstrung SU, but the Orange never seemed like it would approach the initial expectation of its coach.“I should’ve learned 40 years ago but I got old and I forgot,” Boeheim said, “that I tried to be a little optimistic and that’s all anybody said the whole year. That’s why coaches never say anything optimistic. Ever.“I made a mistake. That’s it.”Even a month after ESPN published the video in September, Boeheim tried stepping back carefully on his words. When the head coach was asked about his statement at media day in October, Boeheim clarified that he said it “could be” one of his best team in a while.“I said that one year and we only won about 18 games,” Boeheim said at media day. “So, I mean, could.”The irony in Boeheim’s words couldn’t be any clearer with Syracuse’s 19-win year officially over. As it stands now, next season will be Boeheim’s last as head coach of the Orange. He said he’d like to bring in another recruit to complement the trio of commits he already has, but the learning curve for first-year players in his program was painfully evident all year.Only one thing is for certain: Boeheim will never make a similar statement about his team again.Said Boeheim: “I could have the Golden State Warriors next year here and I’d say I don’t how we’re gonna be. You can’t say something like (I did).” Comments
