Stellar play in September resulted in Athlete of the Month nominations for Champlain Valley Union High’s KK Logan in field hockey and Konnor Fleming for football.

Logan, a senior, scored eight goals and assisted on three others as the defending Division 1 champions rolled undefeated through the month. Logan also scored winning goals in overtime victories over Essex High and South Burlington High, both games on the road.

Fleming, a junior, helped the football Redhawks to a 4-0 mark by rushing for nine touchdowns and passing for four more. On defense, Fleming snared two pass interceptions to help preserve a 7-0 triumph over Middlebury Union High.

Logan is one of five nominees in the girls division of the Vermont Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association program.

Others are Brittany Pfaff of Rice Memorial High soccer, Jenna Griffith of Colchester High cross country, Jessica Edwards of St. Michael’s College cross country and Courtney Chadburn of Castleton State College soccer.

Joining Fleming as boys nominees are Max Librizzi of Essex High football, Jason Burnett of St. Michael’s College soccer, Gavin Callahan of Windsor High football, Jeff Sutherland of Mount Mansfield Union football, Evan Cassidy of Castleton State football, Dummerston road runner Justin Fyffe, Richie Hackett of Lake Region Union High soccer and Scooter Hayford of Twin Valley Union soccer.

September winners are expected to be announced within a week. All monthly winners are honored each summer at an awards luncheon.

    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.
