Having turned the heat way up after a disappointing, 42-39, home defeat at the hands of Rice Memorial High on Jan. 5, coach Stan Williams and his Champlain Valley Union High girls hoop combine will take a three-game winning streak into Friday night’s meeting with North Country Union High.

The game is set tip off at 6:30 p.m. on the home court at Bremner Gymnasium. CVU popped the Falcons 49-27 early in the season in Newport.

The red-hot Redhawks are averaging 67 points during their recent string of victories.

Senior center Allison Gannon uncorked a season-high, 31-point barrage to lead the Redhawks to their latest triumph, a 67-45 bopping of 4-9 Vergennes Union High Monday at the Commodores’ port.

In hiking its season mark to 11-2, CVU took control in the second half, breaking out from a halftime, five-point edge.

Last Thursday night in Hinesburg, it was perennial Division 1 final four participant Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans that got run over by the CVU hoop-a-lanche.

Gannon again led the swish-making with 22 points. She was busy in other areas as well, grabbing 11 rebounds, passing off for three assists and picking BFA pockets for six steals.

Frontcourt mate Kendal Kohlasch was also busy with 10 points, seven assists, five steals and three rebounds. Guard Amanda Kinneston fired in nine points and joined the Klepto Gang with four steals, making it 15 thefts for the trio — of which Jesse James would have been in awe.

All 11 Redhawks played, and nine scored.

    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.
