The Champlain Valley Union High softball team will tangle with the Rice Memorial High Green Knights nine Thursday (4:30 p.m.) at the Hawks’ Hinesburg nest.
CVU is 1-6 in the wake of Tuesday’s 22-12 loss to visiting St. Johnsbury Academy.
The ouch of defeat came after the Redhawks snapped a five-game losing string last Friday with a 17-15 triumph over visiting South Burlington High.
Winning pitcher was Natalie Gagnon, who chipped in at the plate with a double and single. Also swinging big bats were Elizabeth Boutin and Bronwen Hopwood, with three hits each. Mikala Clark doubled and singled.
Gagnon laced a two-run single in the St. Johnsbury game.

    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.
