While the Mount Anthony Union High wrestling team captured a second straight New England Interscholastic wrestling crown last Friday and Saturday at Providence, R. I., Champlain Valley Union High came away with an historical high in the event.

Senior Grant Poston took third place in the 170–pound class, the best ever showing by a CVU wrestler.

Previous CVU highs had been fifth place individual finishes in 2002 and 2013.

The Redhawks’ Kienan Kittredge won preliminary rounds in the 195–pound division before being eliminated.

Mount Anthony, the Vermont champions, had three finalists, two of them winners, in taking the team triumph by 13 points over runner–up Danbury, Conn. There were 160 wrestlers in the competition.

    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.
