Adams Apple Orchard & Farm Market held its first annual Summer Festival Aug. 21-22. The Adams decided to hold a Summer Festival this year in place of their traditional fall event due to damage to their apple crop from a late spring frost.

The festival featured a peach pie contest, with Forrest White of Williston winning the grand prize for his Peach ‘n’ Bacon Pizza.

    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.
