Dunphy is field hockey Metro player of the year

Field hockey coaches named Champlain Valley Union High senior goalie Evangeline Dunphy the Metro Division Player of the Year in announcing their all-state teams and senior squad for next summer’s Twin State contest with New Hampshire.

Dunphy, the Redhawk’s aggressive netminder, chalked up 10 shutouts during the season to lead CVU into the postseason playoffs. She was also named to the all-senior team.

Joining Dunphy on the all-Metro squad are teammates Amanda Whitbeck, a forward, and midfielder Emily O’Brien.

Midfielder Sami Harvey and defender Kathryn Asch were named to the second team. Midfielder Katherine King and forward Lily Schmoker are honorable mentions.

The Burlington Free Press named Dunphy to its all-state team. Whitbeck made the newspaper’s second team and O’Brien drew an honorable mention.

    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.
