Foes of the Division 1 champion Champlain Valley Union High boys’ soccer team last fall (last three autumns, actually) stacked their defenses against the Redhawks’ striker Shane Haley, usually to no avail.

The now-graduated senior just scored and scored including the winning goal in the overtime title match.

The New Hampshire Lions Twin State All-Star team got a taste of Haley Saturday when it met Vermont in the annual contest at Franklin Pierce College in Rindge, N.H. For the Granite State, it was a bitter pill, as the swift Haley booted home three goals to lead his teammates—including CVU’s Noah Lieberman—to a 5-2 triumph.

The victory pulled Vermont to within 17-14-8 of New Hampshire in the overall series.

The host state did win the girls contest 1-0 for a 17-10-4 edge in their series.

CVU’s Taylor Goldsborough and Kate Raszka were among Vermont midfielders, while Lily Harris was in goal.

    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.
