The LuLac Edition #308, Sept. 21rst, 2007
PHOTO INDEX: ALICE COOPER AND THE REMAINS OF THE STANDARD BRANDS BUILDING.
Mrs. LuLac and I had the opportunity to see Alice Cooper Tuesday night at the Kirby. Although I was never a die hard fan, I always respected him as a performer and the way he energizes an arena or a theatre. When the tickets became available, we went even though I was the only guy there most likely wearing Polo loafers and a Donna Karan blazer. Mrs. LuLac was enthralled with some of the lyrics and we had a wonderful time. However, I'll leave it to my fellow blogger from Wilkes Barre On Line to review the show. http://wilkes-barre.tripod.com/
MR. PEANUT RETURNS
A century and 12 months after Planters Peanuts was established a historical marker honoring the company and its founders will be unveiled during a noon ceremony Saturday on South Main Street.
The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission marker is the result of a request by Michael Chmiola of Hanover Township. Chmiola petitioned the commission for the marker because he felt the internationally known company with roots in Wilkes-Barre should be recognized. Kraft Foods is sending its corporate face – Mr. Peanut – to witness the event.
The marker will be installed at the site of the former Planters Peanut headquarters at 632 S. Main St.
The building is gone and only a smaller building that once housed some offices for Standard Brands still stands.
