Fall means apples and so much more

Posted on October 2, 2017 |
By Faith Gong



n Fall means apples FaithGong2773.jpg

My husband arrived home one evening during the first week in September after a stop at the Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op. He raised his arm in triumph, clutching the handle of a small brown paper bag filled with Macintosh apples and bearing the stamp of Shoreham’s Champlain Orchards.

“Vermont apples are back!” he announced joyfully.

This is one of the hallmarks of the changing seasons: We know summer is giving way to fall when we no longer have to purchase plastic bags of apples shipped in from the West Coast.

Cocktail-culture is back. But you already know that.

We’ve seen craft cideries, breweries, wineries, distilleries and specialty cocktail bars pop up and grow all around our county and state in the last five to 10 years. But have you ever wondered why these specialty libations have become so popular?

Brad Koehler, owner of Windfall Orchard, has a few theories.

Koehler’s in the craft alcohol biz. He uses the fruit he grows in Cornwall to make high-quality hard cider, ice wine and perry (similar to hard cider, but made from pears).

Bristol selectboard eyeing trees; wants to balance safe sidewalks with tree health & beauty

BRISTOL — The Bristol selectboard is trying to figure out what to do about those trees between the street and the sidewalk in the village that are busting up sidewalks.

Cutting back the roots so the sidewalk can be repaired could end up killing the tree; removing the tree takes out an important Bristol asset.

“Sidewalk trees are a big part of the beauty of Bristol village, as is its walkability” said Bristol selectboard Chair Peter Coffey. “Trees are important. Safe sidewalks are important.”

BRANDON — Chris Waddell knows all about challenges. He thrives on them. In fact, when life didn’t hand him enough of a challenge, he created his own.

Waddell was paralyzed from the waist down after a skiing accident on the first day on Christmas break from Middlebury College in 1988. He had been a promising member of the Middlebury College Ski Team, but all of that changed when his ski popped off and he fell, broke two vertebrae and damaged his spinal cord. He was 20 years old.
