BHS has returned many of the players who last October knocked the Redhawks out of the Division I playoffs. Meanwhile, the young CVU team is working its way toward the division’s elite, having thus far scored 13 goals while allowing just four.

On Tuesday, the Redhawks whipped Mount Mansfield Union, 3-0, as captain and midfielder Asia Sienko scored once and assisted on the other goals. Juniors Haleigh Smith and Johanna Fehrs had the other net finders.

Sienko also scored in Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Stowe. Two juniors, Erika Gobeille and Nicole Utter, also scored.

Sophomore goalie Emily Sackett had two stops in picking up the shutout of Stowe. Tuesday, Sackett shared time with junior Ashley Trayah, and the two combined for seven saves.

    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.
