Boys lax team at Burlington Friday

With Saturday’s home game against Mount Mansfield Union postponed until May 6 due to a wet and unplayable field, coach Dave Trevithick and his Champlain Valley Union High boys lacrosse team were on the road against Middlebury High Tuesday.

On Friday at 4 p.m. the Redhawks will be at Burlington High to test the Seahorses prior to school vacation week.

CVU took a 1-1 record to Middlebury, following last Wednesday’s 11-4 triumph at Spaulding High in Barre.

Sophomore Elliot Mitchell led the offensive explosion with four scores while junior Steele DuBrul tallied three times and senior Jack Gingras notched a pair of goals.

Sophomore Cam Rivard and junior Nevin DeParlo had single net finders.

Junior goalie Owen Hudson made 10 saves while the Redhawks took 24 shots at the Crimson Tide cage.

    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.
