CASTLETON — In Saturday night’s Division II final at Castleton State College, the top-seeded Middlebury Union High School football ran into what Coach Dennis Smith afterward called a buzzsaw.
With senior quarterback Christian McCormick (303 yards and four touchdowns passing) leading the way, the No. 3 Knights (10-1) scored 22 straight second-half points to break open a 16-14 game and win, 38-20.
David Stockman, the boy-wonder budget director in the first Reagan administration and the brains behind the supply-side economics in 1981, is making waves within the Republican Party by adamantly proclaiming that the Bush tax cuts should not be extended — not for the rich and not for the middle class. He’s also suggesting cuts in the military. Those two recommendations are direct opposites of the policies he championed during Reagan’s first term.
