Last game for CVU field hockey

The Champlain Valley Union High School field hockey team is headed to Burlington for its final regular season game Thursday afternoon.

Burlington edged out the 6-5-2 Redhawks 1-0 in the teams’ last match, a close overtime game.

Last Thursday, CVU beat the Mount Mansfield Union Cougars 2-1, making up a rained out Oct. 3 game.

The next day, though, the Redhawks took a tough loss at Essex High School. The Hornets defeated the Redhawks 3-0.

On Monday, the Redhawks played Middlebury at home, tying 1-1.

    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.
