Reichert, Soll gain lacrosse honors

Seniors Tim Reichert and Ben Soll have earned High School Lacrosse Coaches Association awards for the past season.

Reichert was named a U.S. Lacrosse All-American, one of five players in the state so honored. He was also selected for the National Senior All-Star game.

Soll was one of five Vermonters named a Green and Gold Outstanding Player of the Year. He was also chosen for the Division 1 All-State First team, along with Reichert.

CVU hockey player in national team tryouts

It may be the middle of the summer, but last week Eric Robinson, a defensive stalwart on the Division 1 champion Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team, was lacing up the skates in Rochester, N.Y. as one of 145 players on eight teams trying for positions on the U-17 national team.

Robinson was the only Vermonter and one of three players from northern New England named to the 10-member New England team taking part in the summer camp. Last winter he was an All-State first team member.

Stars of summer

Williston’s 9- and 10-year-old Little League All-Star Team jumped out to a fast start in the District 1 Little League All-Star Tournament. The team went undefeated through its first four games, guaranteeing a top seed going into the upcoming double elimination tournament. Williston defeated North Burlington 10-0, Center City 11-1, South Burlington 11-8 and Burlington American 5-4 in extra innings.

    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.
