FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh Zoning Board of Adjustment has issued a conditional approval of a Champlain Oil Co. plan for a gas station, convenience store and fast-food restaurant on Route 7. But the approval came without elements of the proposal that COCO officials said were critical to their business plan: diesel fuel pumps and a drive-through window for the restaurant.

The board (ZBA) took that action on Sept. 16 and publicized it last week once COCO acknowledged it had received the ruling in the mail.

An associate dean and a professor of art history at the college, Smith Abbott specializes in Italian Renaissance art. She knew that the college museum didn’t own any work from the Italian Renaissance, and she urged the museum’s director to consider the purchase, both because of its condition and the void it filled in the college collection.

ADDISON COUNTY — Cool temperatures and plenty of sunshine herald good news for apple growers in Addison County.

Those conditions are paving the way for good color on this year’s crop of apples, as well as thick crowds at pick-your-own orchards in the region.

“It’s a very good crop,” said Bill Suhr, the owner of Champlain Orchards in Shoreham, and many orchardists in the region are reporting similar news. Pickers took to the field last month and will be busy harvesting the county’s apple crop well into October.
