The 9-0 Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team reached the halfway point of the regular season Wednesday night with a trip to St. Albans for a session with Bellows Free Academy. The game was after the Observer’s press deadline.

More time on the state’s asphalt slabs comes up Saturday with a trip down Route 7 to 5-2-1 Rutland High at 6 p.m.

Then the Redhawks have a week off until Jan. 18, when they are home to rival Essex High, 6-2 going into Wednesday’s action.

CVU’s latest win was a 7-0 bopping of visiting North Country Union last Saturday at Cairns Arena.

Freshman Thomas Samuelsen led the potent Redhawk attack—17 goals in the last three games—with a pair of scores.

Elliott Mitchell, Ryan Keelan, Hoyt McCuin, Will Bernicke and Cam Rivard also lit the lamp for CVU.

It was the third shutout of the season for coach Mike Murray’s combine.

    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.
