Rematches next for boys hockey

The 7-2-1 Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team heads into the second half and rematch part of the season this week by traveling to Middlebury Union on Saturday, then retuning to home Cairns Arena on Wednesday to tangle once more with tough 6-2-1 Essex High.

The Redhawks topped Middlebury 3-1 earlier this season at Cairns. They got nipped 2-1 by the Hornets at Essex two weeks ago, but have won all three outings since.

Coach Mike Murray’s Hawks are coming off Saturday’s 7-0 win over Rice Memorial, which featured offensive contributions from a solid number of skaters.

Twice lighting the red lamp in the contest were Ryan Keelan and Elliott Mitchell. Cam Rivard, Kirk Fontana and Jake Garrett each notched single goals.

Alex Bulla paced the scoring helpers with three assists. Will Bernicke and Rivard each garnered two assists and Keelan had one.

Goalie Greg Talbert picked up the goose egg by making nine saves.

    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.
