April 23, 2009

Coach Julie Sloan and her Champlain Valley Union High girls lacrosse team will be eying their first victory of the campaign Saturday when they entertain the Rutland High Red Raiders at 11 a.m.

The youthful Redhawks are off to an 0-2 start following a 15-6 loss last Wednesday to defending state champion Middlebury Union and an 11-6 defeat Friday at Burlington High.

Junior Erika Gobeille and sophomore Lizzy Betz each knocked in a pair of goals in the Burlington game while sophomore Amanda Kinneston and junior Hillary Reichert added singletons.

Goalie Micheala Gobeille had eight saves.

In the Middlebury contest, Gillian Shelley, Michaela Cornbrooks, Erika Gobeille and Kinneston had the CVU scores.

    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.
