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 would like to explain the charges of unlawful restraint because it sounds really awful. No we didn’t hold anyone hostage. We were simply standing in front of some VT Gas/Michel’s trucks. They were in no way restrained. When the men decided to leave, they simply backed up and took off. The police have been hired by VT Gas and they sure do have a way of turning a phrase.

    Mr. Recchia refers to this action as a “last-ditch” attempt to scuttle the pipeline. Wrong again! This was far from our last attempt to bring sanity and reason to our state officials who refuse to listen or help.

    Nate Palmer and Kari Cuneo and their families are not the only land owners who have fought this immoral taking of their land. So many folks have lost that fight for lack of time and money. It’s quite intimidating to go before the Public Service Board and their team of lawyers, to sit down at a table filled with VT Gas attorneys and not have anyone to watch your back and advise you.

    When people are up against the wall, they fight back any way they can. Peaceful protests not only express our frustration but they help bring attention to what is happening to our friends and neighbors..

    So Mr. Recchia, we are not done!
