The Champlain Valley Union High field hockey team racked up some points with a 3-0 win over Colchester on Friday, bringing the team’s record up to 4-3-1.

The Redhawks traveled to Mount Mansfield Union High School on Wednesday, after the Observer’s press time, a team they narrowly lost to on Sept. 11.

On Saturday, the Redhawks head to South Burlington at 1:30 p.m. The last game against the Rebels finished in a scoreless deadlock.

The Redhawks took on the Lakers—a team they beat 2-0 the first game of the season—on Friday, under a cold, threatening sky. Molly Dunphy sent the first goal into the net during the first half, on an assist by Kathryn Loucks. The second goal came just 40 second later, scored by Katie Arms with an assist by Molly Dunphy. The final tally came from Mackenzie Roberts, assisted by Emily O’Brien.

Keeper Evangeline Dunphy had four saves for the shutout, including a save on a penalty stroke.

    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.
