The Champlain Valley Union High track and field teams have some 10 days before their next meet, set for May 3 at South Burlington High. The Redhawks have an accomplished three wins in four competitions in the early season.

On Tuesday, the girls scored a victory in a six-team meet at Colchester High, beating out the runner-up host team by 153 points to 137.

The Redhawks swept the relays while Haleigh Smith scored wins in the long and triple jumps plus a second in the high jump.

In addition, Marion Albers and Emma Riesner finished one-two in the 100-yard dash, Albers posting a winning time of 13.4 seconds.

The boys finished second to St. Johnsbury Academy, which racked up 197 points to 117 for CVU.

Sam Chevalier scored a victory in the pole vault and the relay teams prevailed in the 400 and 800 runs.

Last Wednesday, both boys and girls teams were victorious in a season-opening, home meet against Harwood Union and Spaulding High.

    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.
