Around Town

Kindred Connections, an organization that provides peer support for those affected by cancer, is coming to Chittenden County and looking for cancer survivors who want to give back.

Anyone who wants to help needs to undergo training to learn high-level communication skills. There was a three-part training at the American Cancer Society in Williston in September and early October, and there will be more in the future.

If you are a cancer survivor and would like to give back to your community, call (800) 652-5064 or e-mail info@vcsn.net. Visit www.vcsn.net for more information

Kindred Connections began in Franklin, Orange and Washington counties.

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
