Home tests await boys hockey squad (12/17/09)

Dec. 17, 2009

They bagged a big victory Saturday at their home Cairns Arena over Spaulding High of Barre, and hit the road Wednesday for St. Albans and a 1-1 Bellows Free Academy outfit. Next up for the Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team are home games at 2 p.m. Saturday against 2-0-1 Rutland High and at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday when Hartford High comes calling.

Wednesday’s game was scheduled for after press deadline.

The victory over Spaulding came partly as a result of the lethal hookup (at least to the Crimson Tide) of forwards Nate LaCroix and Robbie Dobrowski.

LaCroix fired home two goals, including the game winner that snapped a 2-2 knot as the third period was down to the 4:30 mark.

Dobrowski assisted on the winner and the previous LaCroix marker and also knocked in a tally of his own.

Spaulding outshot the Redhawks 32-20. Senior net minder Mark Albertson came up with a big effort, stopping 30 Crimson Tide shots.

The game was originally scheduled for last Wednesday but was switched to Saturday, which both teams had as an open date.

    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.
