A quartet of players from the Division 1 champion Champlain Valley Union High boys lacrosse team were named to the Vermont squad of recently graduated senior stars that took on their New Hampshire counterparts last Saturday at Hanover, N.H.
Despite the presence of forward Nevin DiParlo, midfielders Alex Bulla and Steele DuBrul and defense man Cameron Harris, the Granite Staters rapped the Vermonters 10-3.
New Hampshire increased its advantage in the boys series to 20 wins and just three losses.
The girls’ contest also went to New Hampshire by a 25-9 margin. Vermont trails 16-3 in the series.

    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.
