CVU boys hockey gain top Metro playoff seeding

The second season for the Metro Division’s top-seeded 17-1-2 Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team began Wednesday night (after the Observer’s press deadline) with a home Cairns Arena quarterfinal contest against 4-13-4 Spaulding High of Barre.

A victory over the Crimson Tide would put coach Mike Murray’s skaters into the semifinals against either fifth-seeded South Burlington High (12-8) or fourth-seeded Colchester High (13-7) who also played Wednesday night.

The CVU semifinals would be played Monday at 5 p.m. at the University of Vermont’s Gutterson Field House, according to CVU athletic director Kevin Riell.

In the regular season finale a week ago Wednesday, the Redhawks played to a scoreless draw at Essex High, which is the Metro Division’s second seed.

Goalie Greg Talbert made 19 stops for CVU, which fired 26 shots on the Hornets’ net.

    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.
