ADDISON COUNTY — Local orchards are reporting mixed results for this year’s apple crop: Growers say it’s not as good as last year’s larger-than-average harvest, but is still considered at least close to typical.

“We are picking less fruit than we originally thought we would,” said Bill Suhr of Champlain Orchards. “But we’re grateful that we’ve done a lot of planting lately. A lot of young trees are maturing.”

BRISTOL — A spirited debate about a new playground on the town green has sprung up between residents in the past several weeks. Some described the not-yet-completed playground as an eyesore, while others chimed in to defend the months of hard work of playground organizers.
