    MONTPELIER – On close to a 2-1 margin, dozens of Vermonters from all over the state told the Vermont Public Service Board Monday night that Entergy Nuclear didn't deserve a state permit to keep operating the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant.

    More than 80 people had signed up at 13 different video locations all over the state for the hearing, and while most people spoke against Entergy and Yankee, the Vernon nuclear plant definitely had its supporters from Brattleboro to St. Albans.

    One woman in Montpelier actually sang a song she composed, urging the three-member board to deny Entergy a permit.

    The Public Service Board needs to decide whether to grant Entergy a certificate of public good to operate another 20 years. Vermont Yankee's original certificate expired in March.
