Busy week of competition for boys tennis team (4/22/10)

April 22, 2010

Seeking to end a two-match losing skein, the Champlain Valley Union High boys tennis team faced undefeated Essex High on Wednesday at Shelburne in a match rained out earlier in the season.

The match was scheduled for after press deadline.

Then the original schedule called for a visit from Rice Memorial High on Thursday. The Green Knights had nipped the Redhawks 4-3 in the season opener.

Essex had also posed a problem for the Hawks, having scored a 6-1 triumph in Essex last Thursday.

The Hornets were led by Williston’s David Ro, who scored 6-0, 6-0 wins over Tabor deGroot, CVU’s top player. Will Hall earned CVU’s lone point with a singles win.

Despite singles victories by Hall, Brice Guerriere and Liam Kelley, the Redhawks on Monday bowed 4-3 to South Burlington High (2-0).

    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.
