    VERNON — The owner of the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant says about 30 jobs will be cut by the end of the year.

    Entergy Corp. spokesman Terry Young said that the cuts represent about a 4 percent reduction from the Vernon plant’s workforce and are part of about 800 layoffs throughout the company.

    Young said the company knows how many people will be laid off but hasn’t yet determined which ones. He said the cuts won’t be focused on any one area and that the company will make sure the reductions don’t pose any hazards to the plant’s operation.
