But in a compromise move in the Senate bill, there is a 17.4% tax deduction on pass through income from the coop to the farmers. That means farmers would receive the full benefit of the tax deduction under patronage refunds since there would be no provision that would let the cooperatives benefit from retaining some or all of the deduction.

The reason that CBS lost football in the first place had nothing to do how they treated the game,” said Greg Gumbel, the lead play by play voice this fall and a former host of “The NFL Today.””The NFL left because there was $100 million a year on the table. You know, there’s nothing wrong with doing it for the money. We all do what we do for the money and if they had left $100 million a year on the table, we all would have said, ‘What? Are you nuts?’ “As a result, most of CBS Sports’ big name announcers and its prime production talent left the network, and the loss of football, directly or indirectly, depending on whom you talk to, led to the departure of two division presidents.But behind Sean McManus, who took over the helm of CBS Sports in November 1996, the sports division began a slow but steady comeback, culminating with the wresting away of AFC rights from NBC.Many of CBS’ former NFL on air and behind the scenes talent including announcers Pat Summerall, John Madden and Dick Stockton, producer Robert Stenner and director Sandy Grossman went to Fox and are staying.But a good number of people like Gumbel, Wolff, Cavolina and announcers Verne Lundquist, Randy Cross and Don Criqui came back to CBS and are the core of the new effort, along with relative newcomers like announcers Gus Johnson and Kevin Harlan, analyst Steve Tasker and reporters Armen Keteyian and Bonnie Bernstein.Beyond a new package of 3 D graphics, the network promises not to try to reinvent the wheel in its production.
