CVU to host family formal

Champlain Valley Union High School business ethics class’s fourth annual family formal is set for Jan. 26 in the school cafeteria from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade—though older and younger students are welcome—can bring an adult or their families to the dance.

Tickets are $15 per adult, $5 per child or a maximum of $40 for a family of four or more. The class’s goal is to raise $7,500, which will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

For more information or to order tickets, email tamie-jo@cvuhs.org.

    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.
