Home stand approaches for CVU girls hockey team12/24/08

Dec. 24, 2008

With a 2-1-1 mark in their last four games, the Champlain Valley Union High girls hockey team will return to the ice after a week off on Tuesday, when it plays host to visiting Stowe High at Cairns 1 Arena in South Burlington.

Last Saturday, the Redhawks turned it up a notch, skating to a 3-3 tie against 4-2-1 Bellows Free Academy on the road at Perley-Collins Field House in St. Albans.

Amanda Armell fired in a pair of goals for the Redhawks and Alyx Rivard notched a singleton for CVU. Goalie Nicole Bonneau stopped 31 BFA shots in the CVU cage.

The deadlock came on the heels of Wednesday’s 5-4 win over Burlington High, in which Molly Howard had her third two-goal game of the campaign. Rivard, Maggie Ryan and Sasha Gunther also slammed home scores for the winners, while Bonneau kicked out 36 Seahorse shots from the CVU nets.

    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.
