Feb. 19, 2009

With state meets coming up the first week in March, the Champlain Valley Union High ski teams posted second (boys) and third (girls) last Friday in competition among eight schools at Bolton Valley Resort.

John Dixon was the prime mover for the Redhawks, posting a 14-second victory over Burlington High’s Ben Lustgarten in the boys division. Tabor deGroot took 10th, giving CVU its second finisher among the leaders.

In team scorers, CVU boys were runners-up to U-32 of East Montpelier.

The girls came in third among their division’s teams, with Burlington High and Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans taking the top two slots.

CVU’s Annie Jackson was fifth, Anya Rose seventh and Laura Jackson eighth.

    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.
