Beaver Fever

You'd think they would enjoy a sexy beaver in SchodackSchodack residents are going nuts over a proposal to open a Betty Beaver truck stop on Route 9. You may be familiar with Ms. Beaver from their outposts at Northway Exit 17 and in Fultonville. The property in question already serves truckers, but neighbors don't like what they see at other Betty Beaver locations:
Elizabeth Gable, a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals, said she drove by the Fultonville truck stop and that the character of the sign was "everyone's worst nightmare." The sign depicts a heavily made-up female beaver dressed in Wonder Woman type garb with a large bosom popping out beyond the sign.
A strangely alluring dream? Absolutely. My worst nightmare? Not by a long shot.
