It's still Frank's, thanks. But because of the quiet sale of the 95-year- old local institution to an Elizabeth, N.J., bottler, Frank's Beverages are no longer made in Philadelphia. Frank's sodas, including cream, birch beer and the legendary Black Cherry Wishniak, are being manufactured and bottled these days in North Jersey, at the plant of C&C Cola. The grandson and great-grandson of founder Jacob Frank sold the business in August to C&C, owned by a fellow independent bottler who'd been wooing them for some time.

STANDING IN line in the post office the other day, I was delighted at the response when two customers at the window were short of cash. Each time someone quickly supplied the 10 cents and 48 cents needed. And a lady asked an elderly woman (me) to go ahead of her in line! Did you know that on Nov. 26, Mayor Nutter participated in a reading from scripture in City Hall at the invitation of the American Bible Society? Indeed, the mayor read from Psalms and was followed by the president of the Westminster Theological Seminary and then by many others.

Friday's front page brought news about two of Philadelphia's genial, if quite different, old gentlemen - G. Stockton Strawbridge and Peter Camiel. Mr. Strawbidge, 77, the Grand Old Man of Market Street East, was receiving the Powell Award for his civic accomplishments; Mr. Camiel, the one-time boss of the city's Democratic Party (but who is somewhat more famous as the man who proved Frank Rizzo a liar), had died at 81. The easy thing is to talk about Mr. Strawbridge's grand and glorious achievements and contrast them with Mr. Camiel's amusing if venal activities in trying to make the world a better place for, among others, the state's beer distributors in whose behalf he labored ceaselessly while a state senator.

Over lunch the other day, the head of a high-profile Philadelphia company confided that he recently almost moved his headquarters from Center City to Bala Cynwyd. His company needs more space, he said - and if it's going to move, why not move across City Line, where taxes are lower, traffic is lighter, potholes are fewer and you can go for months on end without confronting a vagrant, hooker, a drug dealer or a mugger? My executive friend ultimately decided against such a move - but only because of its potential negative effects on his company's image.

REP. MARK Cohen has called for a "state-system college" for Philadelphia. In fact, Cheyney University, part of the state university system, has had an urban campus in Philadelphia for years, offering graduate degrees and certification programs in education. My understanding is that Cheyney would be happy to expand their course offerings in Philadelphia, perhaps even extending them to undergraduates. So there is a strong base on which to build. And, since Cheyney has an agreement with Community College of Philadelphia about accepting CCP students, there could be a smooth transition.

Four Israeli companies plan to open offices in Philadelphia, Mayor Nutter said Tuesday, following his return from a three-day business visit to Tel Aviv. The trip was a continuation of a trade mission in November 2013 and this time included a stop in Frankfurt, Germany. Nutter signed a sister-city agreement with Frankfurt - Philadelphia's first in 23 years - before traveling to Tel Aviv, which has been a sister city to Philadelphia since 1967 and is also a sister city to Frankfurt.

She was arrested and jailed, police say, after she assaulted an officer during a traffic stop.

The eyes told the story of this complex man. During televised ceremonies at St. Andrews last week marking his induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame, the photo of a Victorian gentleman flashed on the screen. His thick mustache, proper waistcoat, and stiffly cocked head couldn't obscure the rebel A.W. Tillinghast's eyes revealed. Albert Warren Tillinghast, a name so redolent of social status, was born in Philadelphia in 1876 as America's centennial was being celebrated in Fairmount Park.
