Former CVU soccer stars make marks in college (11/12/09)

Nov. 12, 2009

Members of the 2007 Champlain Valley Union High boys soccer team, Division 1 champions, have helped two Division III college teams close in on NCAA tournament berths.

Micah Rose, a sophomore midfielder for the Swarthmore Garnets, has been chosen first team All-Centennial Conference. Among his season highlights was scoring the winning goal in an Oct. 9 victory over Ursinus.

Rose has also been placed on the 2009 Conference Academic Honor Roll.

The 14-2-2 Garnets earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Division III tournament and will be hosts for first and second round matches.

Tyler Macnee, who along with former CVU teammate Carson Cornbrooks is helping fuel Middlebury College’s race to the NCAAs, scored one of the goals Saturday in the Panthers 2-0 victory over Wesleyan in the NESCAC tournament.

Middlebury lost 2-1 to Williams on Sunday in the final, but with a 9-5-2 record, is hopeful of getting an at-large tournament bid.

    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.
