CVU harriers in districts this weekend

October 17th, 2013

The interscholastic cross country season gets down to the big ones this weekend with the Champlain Valley Union High boys and girls teams heading for the Northern District Meet Saturday at Missisquoi Valley Union High in Swanton.

CVU’s top runners were in New York City Saturday where autumn in New York was not the pop-jazz standard song or the 2000 film starring Richard Gere, but rather CVU’s and Division 1 premier girls runner Autumn Eastman taking second place in the highly regarded Manhattan Invitational.

Eastman ran the 2.5-mile course in 14 minutes and 23.1 seconds.

The CVU girls finished eighth in team standings. Top Vermont boys team was South Burlington High in 10th.

    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.
