Today’s rollout comes a-ter months o buildup in whichthe marketplaces, also knownas exchanges, have been bothpraised and vilifed.Illustrating the heated po-litical disagreements over thelaw, the opening o the exchang-es comes the same day as theshutdown o the ederal govern-ment, led by congressional Re-publicans who want to block thehealth insurance reorms romtaking eect. The shutdown will have noimmediate eect on the insur-ance marketplaces that are thebackbone o the law, becausethey operate with money that isn’t subject to the annual bud-get wrangling in Washington. The marketplaces opening inall 50 states represent a turningpoint in the nation’s approach tohealth care, the biggest expan-sion in coverage in nearly 50 years. The Obama administration

NEW YORK — Be-loved authors Judy Blumeand Eric Carle helped theNew York Public Library celebrate children’s litera-ture Monday as the library released a list o 100 great books rom the last 100 years. The list includes picturebooks or preschoolersas well as books or older readers like “The Hobbit”and “Harry Potter and theSorcerer’s Stone.”“The Cat in the Hat,”“Pippi Longstocking” and“Where the Wild Things Areall made the list, whichaccompanies an exhibit onchildren’s literature at thelibrary’s main building inmidtown Manhattan.Blume and Carle joinedlibrarians or a reading andpanel discussion.“Viewed over time,children’s books are thecollected memory o our hopes and dreams,” saidmoderator Leonard Mar-cus, a book critic and thecurator o the exhibit.“They are the message ina bottle that each genera-tion tosses out to the next generation in the hope that it may wash ashore and beread and be taken to heart.”Blume, whose “Tales o a Fourth Grade Nothing” ison the list, said that whenshe was in the ourth gradehersel she always had sto-ries in her head.“But I never told any-body about them because Ithought i I did they wouldthink I was weird,” she said.Since Blume beganpublishing in the 1970s,many o her books dealing with subjects like racism,divorce and sexuality havebeen banned by authorities who considered the topicsinappropriate or children.“Books that are lovedby children are oten thebooks that scare adults,”Blume said.Carle made the library’slist with “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” his 1969 pic-ture book about a voraciousbug that becomes a butter-fy. He said he created thecaterpillar by olding andmanipulating paper; he rst thought o the character as a bookworm, Willie the Worm.

 ALBUQUERQUE,N.M. — Insultsdished out by oodcritic Anthony Bour-dain on an episodeo CNN’s “Parts Un-known” have stirredup outrage in New Mexico — and now he acknowledgesthat he was wrong. The sharp-tongued che and writer lashed into the “World Fa-mous” Frito pies sold at Santa Fe’sFive & Dime General Store’s snackbar. The store is a tourist attractionand a mainstay in the city’s historicplaza. The dish, according to Bour-dain, was made with canned Hor-mel Chili and a “day-glow orangecheese-like substance.”But Bourdain spokeswomanKaren Reynolds told The Associat-ed Press on Monday that the writer  was incorrect in his description o the chile used by Santa Fe’s Five &Dime General Store’s snack bar tomake the Frito pies.“He admits that ‘we got it wrong’about the chile,” Reynolds said inan email. “And we’ll try to correct it or uture airings.”In his critique, Bourdain alsosaid that the local avorite isn’t evena New Mexico meal, but rather a  Texas creation. He said New Mexi-cans should leave the recipe to the Texans.“New Mexico, you have many  wonderul things,” Bourdain said.“I think, let Texas have this one.”Mike Collins, store manager o the Five & Dime, says Bour-dain was “completely wrong” onthe store’s Frito pie. He said their  version is homemade rom chiliesgrown in New Mexico and remainspopular.“I don’t have any idea where hegot that rom,” Collins said. “I mean,i we’re using canned Hormel Chilithen I’d like to buy stock in that be-cause what we have is good.”Still, Collins said he and the sta don’t have any ill eelings towardBourdain. He said during the tap-ing o the visit, Bourdain was niceand a pleasure to be around.Reynolds also said Bourdainenjoyed the pie, something that  wasn’t clear rom the show.“Contrary to the impression let by some reports o the show, I, inact, very much enjoyed my Fritopie in spite o its disturbing weight in the hand. It may have elt like(expletive) but was shockingly tasty,” Bourdain said in a statement. The ood critic wasn’t all nega-tive toward New Mexico on the ep-isode. Bourdain is seen driving onRoute 66 through New Mexico andspeaks o the amous highway’sdierent cultures and cornucopia o ood. He also is shown enjoyingsome “level 3” green chile and hav-ing to “wait it out” while the spicy eects wear o.

 JACKSON I MississippiPower Co. misses a May dead-line to complete construction o a $4.3 billion power plant in Kem-per County, it will be orced torepay $133 million in ederal taxcredits.However, the company saysthat because o accounting rules,it wouldn’t write the amount o rom proft and wouldn’t add it tothe $990 million in overruns it’salready written o.Company spokeswomanAmoi Geter said that decisioncould come this week.Mississippi Power President Ed Holland told The Associat-ed Press recently that ofcials were reviewing the schedule andcould push it back.“We still think that May dateis achievable,” Holland said. “It’sa challenge, and we’re in the pro-cess o evaluating how achiev-able it is.”Geter says Mississippi Power received tax credits in 2009 to en-courage it to build a coal-ueledpower plant emitting less carbondioxide, with a fve-year deadlineto complete construction.Rainy weather and addition-al work have pushed back theschedule, Holland said. Morethan 6,000 workers are on thesite, a work-orce that’s beenramped up as Mis-sissippi Power hastried to stay onschedule. But Hol-land says thereare now so many  workers on sitethat it can be hardto squeeze them into the samespaces, creating congestion that limits productivity.Monitors employed by thePublic Service Commission have warned that some work remainssignifcantly behind, particular-ly certain kinds o cabling. URSCorp., one o the two monitors, wrote in its August report that internal worst-case scenarioscould call or months o delays incompleting the plant and startingit up. The company hopes to start the gasifer, a key part o startingthe whole plant, by December.“The startup schedule is com-pressed, there’s no doubt about that,” Holland said. “But we thinkit’s doable.”Lower labor productivity isone o the actors that could driveup costs even more. SouthernCo. shareholders are already ab-sorbing $990 million in overruns,and the company has warnedcosts could go up again. But Chie Financial Ofcer MosesFeagin said the $133 million intax credits, which would be re-paid rom cash or by reducing u-ture tax credits, would be only anindirect drag on uture proft. Healso said adding the $133 millionto the $990 million in overruns would be adding “apples and or-anges.”Under a settlement approvedin January, Mississippi rate-payers will have to pay or $2.4billion o the plant’s price, pluspay or up to another $1 billionin bonds that Mississippi Power  won’t make a proft on. That’snot counting the additional hun-dreds o millions or costs o themine and pipeline. The PSC voted 2-1 to approvea 15 percent rate increase to start paying o the plant’s debt evenbeore it begins operations, ol-lowed by an additional 3 percent increase in 2014. MississippiPower has said it’s likely in 2014to seek an additional increase o at least 4 percent over 20 years topay o the bonds. The ederal government o-ered the tax credits to Kemper because the new plant is de-signed to limit carbon dioxideemissions.
