Township Officials Comment On Incident At Buckeye Terminal

From the Pennsauken Township web site:

Last night at 10:00 p.m., Pennsauken’s Fire Department responded to a call that a fuel barge had crashed into the Buckeye Terminal at 123 Derouse Ave. in Pennsauken. The U.S. Coast Guard was also on site.

As a result of the accident, a minor gasoline leak, under 50 gallons, spilled into the Delaware River. The cleanup of the spill was quickly conducted by a contractor hired by Buckeye.

There are no environmental issues stemming from the accident and at no time was public safety compromised.

A Historic Wedding With A Twist

BobFisher-HughesBy Robert Fisher-Hughes, AAP Columnist and Amateur Historian

Half a century ago in April 1964, a young couple was married at Temple Lutheran Church in Pennsauken. The ceremony, performed by Pastor George L. Garver, was not in itself unusual, drawing as it did from the Lutheran prayer book and time-honored tradition. There were the family and friends of the betrothed, the groom in his classic tuxedo, the bridesmaids in blue and the bride in white with a long veil. However, there were also approximately 20 police officers keeping watch on a crowd of about 500 onlookers, and the guests included members of the national press.
