South Burlington High and Burlington High tennis teams are up next for the Champlain Valley Union High girls and boys combines, who have kicked off their seasons with victories over Mount Mansfield Union (Monday) and St. Johnsbury Academy (Saturday).

The defending Division 1 champion girls will play host to South Burlington Thursday (3:30 p.m.) and Burlington Monday at Davis Park in Shelburne. The boys will be visiting both schools on the same afternoons.

Coach Amy deGroot’s girls rolled up a 7-0 home win over Mount Mansfield as Kathy Joseph, Leah Epstein, MacKenzie Buckman, Elyse Killkelley and Isabelle Angstman prevailed in singles.

The doubles duos of Maia Bertrand-MacKenzie Kingston and Erika Barth-Sara Erikson were also winners.

The boys, led by coach Frank Babbott, won 5-2 with singles triumphs going to George Lomas, Joey O’Brien, Skylar Golann and Will Hodgson-Walker while the team of Nathan Comai and Matthew Killkelley won in doubles.
At St. Johnsbury’s indoor facility Saturday, the Redhawk girls won 5-2 while the boys captured a 4-3 decision.

    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.
