Ready to shred

Anyone looking to dispose of confidential documents is in luck: two credit unions in Williston are hosting free paper shredding days in the near future.

New England Federal Credit Union is partnering with SecurShred, a professional document shredding company, to host its May 2010 Shred Fest on Saturday. The Shred Fest will take place at NEFCU’s main branch at 141 Harvest Lane in Williston from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 15. The public is encouraged to bring documents containing personal information, including cancelled checks and old bank and credit card statements. NEFCU and SecurShred request that participants bring no more than five boxes of documents. Shred Fest will not accept documents from businesses.

The second shredding day is offered by VSECU on June 5. Shred Saturday is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at VSECU’s Williston Branch, located at 1755 Essex Road. VSECU’s Berlin Branch at 365 Paine Turnpike North will also have shredding services available. VSECU will accept up to 10 12-by-10-by-15-inch boxes of paper.

    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.
