New Englands a tough run for CVU harriers (11/19/09)

Nov. 19, 2009

The state champion Champlain Valley Union High girls cross country team led Vermont teams Saturday at the 75th Annual New England Championships at Wickham Park, Conn., but finished 11th place in the overall team standings.

Summer Spillane led her CVU teammates in 56th place, while Adrienne Devita came in 77th, 23 seconds behind Spillane’s time of 20:23.

In the boys event, CVU’s Zach Pete, individual Vermont titleholder, took 87th, and was fifth among Vermonters.

    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.
