CVU harriers at Essex Invitational Saturday

Following their run at South Burlington’s Red Rock Wednesday (Observer press time), the Champlain valley Union High cross country teams will next put on their track shoes Saturday (10:30 a.m.) for the annual Essex Invitational at the Tree Farm.
The Redhawks opened the season last Saturday morning with both boys and girls taking team runner-up slots in the informal CVU relays. The event featured two-person relay teams covering about 3,000 meters.
Essex runners took both boys and girls divisions. In the girls competition, the Hornets won the first two position to win the team totals by 12 to 15. CVU took positions 4,5, 6 and 7.
Essex boys captured positions 1 and 3 while Redhawks were in positions 2, 4, and 9. The Hornets’ winning team margin was 9 to 15.

    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.
