Boys hoops team to entertain St. Albans (12/23/09)

Dec. 23, 2009

Off to a glittering 5-0 start to the season, the Champlain Valley Union High boys basketball team has a bunch of Bobwhites and then some Seahorses to contend with over the holiday break.

First up, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, is a visit from Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans. The BFA Bobwhites are no doubt smarting from a 93-57 licking last Thursday at Essex High, where the Hornets are 4-1.

Next Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., Coach Scott Bliss and his cagers travel to Burlington High for a crack at the Division 1 runners-up, who took a 5-0 record into this week.

Last Thursday, CVU made it two-for-two against Missisquoi Union, bopping the Thunderbirds 62-51 in their Swanton cage.

Robert Russ, who had some fine moments (14 points and 10 rebounds) in the Dec. 14 victory over Vergennes Union, fired up 23 points in the latest triumph. Jake Donnelly notched 16 and Mike Clayton chipped in 10.

    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.
