After a trio of triumphs at St. Johnsbury Academy’s prestigious Sandy Murray Early Bird Tournament Saturday, the Champlain Valley Union High wrestling team was host to four teams Wednesday, after the Observer’s press deadline, before taking time off until after Christmas.

On Dec. 27 and 28, the Redhawks will be in the annual two-day Hubie Wagner Tournament at Middlebury Union High.

CVU’s winners in St. Johnsbury were Alex Legg, Grant Poston and Troy Bergeron.

Kienan Kittredge grabbed a second place while Connor Gobeille and Jarett Legg had thirds.

The Redhawks captured third place among the 17 teams competing.

    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.
