YAKIMA, Wash. —

The state has started shutting down the Ahtanum View Corrections Center near Yakima, one of several prisons being closed to save money.

The Department of Corrections started moving prisoners this week, and the population of 125 is down to 75.

KAPP-TV reports about 80 employees will lose their jobs when the prison is closed this spring.

The minimum-security prison opened 25 years ago to house elderly and disabled offenders.
