Girls soccer team moves into second half of campaign 9/25/08

Sept. 25, 2008

Almost a week removed from its last outing, Champlain Valley Union High’s youthful girls soccer team rolled into the second half of its 14-game schedule on Wednesday with a home game against Colchester High.

Then the slate gets busy with a trip to South Burlington High on Friday for a 4:30 p.m. game, followed by a 4 p.m. home contest with Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans on Tuesday.

In getting through the first half of the season with a 5-2 record, the Redhawks scored 13 goals while giving up but five.

The losses were 1-0 battles against the powerhouses — Essex High on Sept. 10, and last Thursday at unbeaten Burlington High. The Seahorses kicked nine shots at CVU goalie Emily Sackett, who knocked out eight of them. Burlington’s defense limited the Redhawks to just a pair of shots on goal.

    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.
