The Redhawks’ home opener is set for Monday at 4:30 p.m. against Rice Memorial High, which nipped Burlington 3-2 Tuesday.

Coach Stan Williams’ debut as soccer mentor was highlighted by Haliana Burhans, who notched a pair of goals plus an assist in the victory Tuesday. Mackenzie Kingston and Hannah Pease also tallied for CVU.

Goalie Maddie Turneau had three stops as CVU put up the big zero in the goals against column.

    I would like to explain the charges of unlawful restraint because it sounds really awful. No we didn’t hold anyone hostage. We were simply standing in front of some VT Gas/Michel’s trucks. They were in no way restrained. When the men decided to leave, they simply backed up and took off. The police have been hired by VT Gas and they sure do have a way of turning a phrase.

    Mr. Recchia refers to this action as a “last-ditch” attempt to scuttle the pipeline. Wrong again! This was far from our last attempt to bring sanity and reason to our state officials who refuse to listen or help.

    Nate Palmer and Kari Cuneo and their families are not the only land owners who have fought this immoral taking of their land. So many folks have lost that fight for lack of time and money. It’s quite intimidating to go before the Public Service Board and their team of lawyers, to sit down at a table filled with VT Gas attorneys and not have anyone to watch your back and advise you.

    When people are up against the wall, they fight back any way they can. Peaceful protests not only express our frustration but they help bring attention to what is happening to our friends and neighbors..

    So Mr. Recchia, we are not done!
