Champlain Valley Union High tennis teams will be on the courts Friday and Monday.
The boys play at home at Shelburne’s Davis Park against Stowe High Friday and then at St. Johnsbury Academy Monday. The girls team will travel to Stowe and then be home to the Hilltoppers on the same days.
Both teams were winners against Essex High Monday on their returns from vacation week.
Coach Frank Babbott’s boys took a 4-3 triumph over the Hornets at Essex highlighted by the Redhawks’ George Lomas’ 7-5, 1-6, 10-7 victory over Daniel Ro of Williston in a duel of number-one aces.
Other CVU victors included Joey O’Brien in singles and the doubles combinations of David Huber-Stephen Asch and Ryan Schneiderman-Justin Hamline.
The defending Division 1 champion girls, 6-1 winners, got singles triumphs from Kathy Joseph, Leah Epstein, MacKenzie Buckman, Isabelle Angstman and Maia Bertrand and a doubles win from MacKenzie Kingston-Visa Nguyen.

    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.
