Four times since mid-June, monitors have recorded “spurious spikes” in radiation levels inside the Vermont Yankee.

Kudos to Vermont Yankee for replacing the monitors so quickly and for their transparency!

As far as Shumlin is concerned, I am sure he believes that this is the worst disaster Vermont has ever had.

"Williams said the manufacturer had experienced problems with that particular “lot” of monitor devices. He declined to give the name of the manufacturer."
-why not tell us the maker? Maybe cuz they'd deny their monitors have had such problems with 'spurious spikes'
Maybe its General Electric- the same maker of the faulty Mark I reactor itself?

N.Y. nuclear power plant worker arrested over records
An employee at the Indian Point nuclear power plant in New York state was arrested this week for allegedly falsifying safety reports.
This is of interest to those following the future of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant because the plants are both owned by Entergy Corp., are of a similar 1970s era and have a legion of critics who want them shut down.
VY critic Arnie Gundersen sought to link Entergy to the crime.“Entergy employees feel pressure to lie???” Gundersen titled an email on the matter.
He noted that the criminal complaint says the former plant chemist admitted he had made up the test results to keep the plant from shutting down.
