On to Thetford for CVU runners

It will be a return to the ups and downs of their home state Saturday when Champlain Valley Union High harriers leg it out on the hilly course of the annual Thetford Invitational meet.

Coach Scott Bliss’ girls captured second place in the Elite Division of the Manchester, N.H. Invitational Saturday as the Redhawks’ Autumn Eastman scored her second regional triumph in three weeks.

Having bested the Empire State opposition in Albany, N.Y., Eastman triumphed in Manchester, touring the course in 17 minutes and 40 seconds.

CVU’s Sophia Gorman came in 12th in 19:54, just one mere second ahead of teammate Abby Keim in 14th place.

The boys team took fourth place in the Large School Division.

    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.
