Residents living near the Rosenberger Dairies property in East Bradford have appeared before the Planning Commission to oppose plans to develop the site as a retail commercial center. Developer William Freas asked the commission on Tuesday to comment on revised plans for development of the property. The original plans showed the construction of a commercial center and townhouses, but the new proposal is for a commercial complex only. Freas plans to appear before the Zoning Board to request a zoning change for the portion of the site that is zoned for residential use. But residents living near the dairy, at Neal Street and Route 52, are concerned about the increased traffic that a retail center would produce.

Beauchamp said that tomorrow he would ask for an emergency hearing on the restraining order and seek to have it lifted.

Question: I've heard that calcium can interfere with the absorption of certain prescription medications. Does that include almond milk, yogurt, and cheese, too? Answer: Dairy products and calcium can bind up certain medications in the stomach, reducing their absorption and efficacy. Almond "milk" is not actually a dairy product, however, so it does not have this effect. Medications whose absorption can potentially be reduced by the dairy products or calcium supplements include: Levaquin and Cipro antibiotics; iron supplements; osteoporosis drugs like Fosamax and Actonel; Synthroid (levothyroxine)

The company chairman, Harry Goldberg, is 87. His son, Raymond, the president and chief executive, is 62. Then there's Ray's son Rick, the executive vice president. And Ray's daughter, Robin Goldberg Batoff, who's director of marketing. If you've surmised that this is a family business of some duration, you are correct. And what a business this Penn Maid is. In contrast to the many regional dairy companies that have long since folded to giants like Sealtest and Kraft, Penn Maid Foods Inc. still flies proudly the independent family colors of the smiling cow, Queenie.

If you are a coffee drinker who reaches eagerly for powdered, non-dairy creamers for your brew, thinking they are somehow better for you than milk, half-and-half or real cream, two Nebraska researchers suggest that you think again. In fact, say the two researchers at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, the two chief ingredients in 22 of the 25 non-dairy coffee whiteners on the market have a pronounced ability to increase the concentrations of potentially harmful fat levels in the blood.

Wawa Inc. does not want to leave its home town, but its dairy definitely is facing growing pains, company officials say. In 1929, when the dairy was built, it produced milk primarily for home delivery. All that changed in 1964, when Wawa opened its first convenience store. Wawa now has 516 stores, and expects that number to double by the turn of the century, said Vincent Anderson, Wawa vice president and general counsel. To meet its stores' growing demand for milk and juice, Wawa must expand its dairy and warehouse operations, he said.

Search the term milkman on Google, and a San Diego mash-up artist appears as the first hit. ("Milkman" plays "electro-hip/hop fusion" music and operates his own lasers.) Kevin Decker, 20, of Voorhees, is the right age to be a Milkman fan, but he's never heard of him. Decker is instead the real thing, something few of the electro-hip/hop generation have ever seen. He is a door-to-door milkman. "I always wear the white shirt," he said last week as he started his afternoon delivery run through Mount Laurel and Marlton.

WATER ICE IS A cherished summer institution in Philly, and those of us who skip dairy, whether for ethical, health or other concerns, can appreciate this cool vegan treat. Sorbet, Popsicles, frozen fruit bars and the like are also delish. But let's face it: "You can always have water ice [or sorbet]" is the cool-treat equivalent of "you can always have a salad. " Nothing against salad or water ice, but we sometimes want that singular richness and flavor associated with ice cream.
