With three wins in their first three encounters, the Champlain Valley Union High boys and girls tennis teams will go up against an old rival Thursday when they take on South Burlington High.

The boys will meet their 2-1 counterparts at South Burlington, while the girls will host the 1-2 Rebels at Davis Park in Shelburne. Both sets of matches start at 3:30 p.m.

On Monday, both teams had little trouble in dispatching Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans, sweeping to 7-0 triumphs.

Playing at home, the boys got singles wins from Marc Vecchio, Tabor deGroot, Corey Dawson, Liam Kelley and Lucas Auger.

The doubles teams of Brad Barth-Tim Averill and Trevor Ogden-Asa Cloutier also scored wins.

On the road in St. Albans, the girls singles winners were Anna Clare Smith, Abby Stoner, Colleen McCarthy, Kate Farley and Jessica Novak. Victorious doubles tandems were Megan Henson-Wells Griffin and Laura Andrews-Samone Schneider.

    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.
