The Valley Players is very pleased to be collaborating once again with the Vermont Playwrights Circle’s 7th annual presentation of ten 10-minute plays by local playwrights.
Williston residents’ plays at the event are:
“At Death’s Door” by Ethan Reid — What happens when a girl comes to deliver a package, literally “At Death’s Door?”
“The Joke About the Small Bird” by Luc Reid — Two leaders work loyally to keep their republic alive, but at what price? And where in all of their struggles does a lively humor come into the world?

Show dates are Aug. 14-17 and tickets are $10, $8 for students/seniors. For more information, call 583-1674 or email valleyplayers@madriver.com.

    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.
