CVU cross-country sweeps Hardack Festival

The Champlain Valley Union High School cross-country teams won the top spots at the Hardack Festival event on Saturday.

CVU girls took the second through fifth spots, following powerhouse Elle Purrier of Richford. Taylor Spillane was second with a time of 18:07—just seven seconds behind Purrier—followed by Autumn Eastman, Julienne Devita and Abby Keim.

The boys also took first, and CVU runner Nicholas Bouton won the race with a time of 17:23. Jared Keyes came in sixth, and Chase Weaver seventh.

On Saturday, the harriers head to the Thetford Invitational, then to the Fairfax Relays on Thursday.

    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.
