With the Thetford Invitational in their rear view mirrors, the Champlain Valley Union High girls and boys cross country teams are looking forward to taming New York City’s regional competition Saturday.

Also on the schedule for some runners is a Friday jaunt at Mount Mansfield Union High and Mill River Park.

CVU’s girls finished second and the boys seventh in Saturday’s event, which drew some 1,000 competitors to Thetford’s 23rd running of the annual Woods Trail Run.

Once again it was the Redhawks’ Autumn Eastman blazing the way to the girls finish line with a record time that was more than a minute better than the runner-up.

Coe-Brown Northwood Academy won the girls competition with 50 points to runner-up CVU’s 60.

South Burlington High was the boys’ titleholder with 60 points, The Redhawks had 330.

    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.
