CVU baseball, softball at home Thursday

By Mal BorightObserver Correspondent

Getting those 2014 season home openers underway has been tricky at Champlain Valley Union High this spring.
The baseball and softball teams had their scheduled Tuesday contests with Mount Mansfield Union postponed a day by rain and Wednesday appeared questionable.
The forecast looked much better for Thursday when the two teams are slated to play host to Route 116 neighbor Mount Abraham Union (4:30 p.m.)
The two teams bowed in their season openers at South Burlington High last week, the defending Division 1 champion baseball guys falling 11-4 while the softball team got bopped 29-9.
The Redhawks were limited to three hits in the baseball encounter, Sam Mikell, Hayden Smith and Deagan Poland the bashers.

    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.
