Publicker Distillery At The Beginning

Many still remember the view of the  Publicker Distillery while crossing the Walt Whitman Bridge and its billboards for Old Hickory Bourbon and other products.

Others remember how the 40-acre site on Delaware Avenue in Philadelphia became a polluted Superfund scandal after it closed in 1982.

In its heyday in the 1950s, it was one of the giants of the liquor industry with a plant in Scotland producing Inver House Scotch, named for owner Simon Neuman’s Radnor home, and was the world’s biggest buyer of Cuban molasses.

The company got into the booze business in 1933 with the end of Prohibition.

Fortune magazine ran a optimistic story at the time about how Harry Publicker — founder and Neuman’s father-in-law — was going to shake up the booze business by making drinkable whiskey without aging it. One supposes they were right. Here is the link.

Help Samantha With Walkathon

Hello! I am excited to tell you that this year, my school, the Springfield Literacy Center, is holding a walk-a-thon fundraiser! On Friday, October 3rd, every child at my school will walk one lap around the field. Each child has been asked to raise money from family and friends to contribute to this fundraiser.  In the past, money gained through fundraising has been used for assemblies by Makin’ Music and The Franklin Institute, after school clubs, playground equipment and necessary supplies for our school.

Donating is simple and your contribution will help me be entered into raffles to earn great prizes! To donate online via Pay Pal simply go to www.ssdcougars.org/webpages/slchs/walkathon.cfm and follow the steps to donate.  You do not need a PayPal account to donate online.  If you prefer to send a check, please make the check payable to SLC Home & School and send it to the Springfield Literacy Center H & S at 210 W. Woodland Avenue, Springfield, PA  19064.  Please include my name on the memo line!

Thank you so much for your time and support.

Love,
Samantha Mazurick

Jet Pack Soldiers

If one was born in say, 1929, one could not be blamed for thinking that the Flash Gordon era has arrived.

Even Dick Tracy would even the new Apple Watch.

And then there is the new jet-powered backpacks cooked up at Arizona State University to help soldiers run faster. The goal is everyone to be able to do a four minute mile.
