Jackson, Wyoming was typical small town America. You couldn't spit without hitting a building or several. Yet, unlike most small towns, Jackson was a thriving tourist destination as it served as a gateway to the Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and National Elk Refuge. Though the town itself only hosted close to ten thousand souls. Compared to Miami, Jackson was quaint and serene, his own personal refuge. As sheriff his worst fear was the occasional drunk tourist or rowdy local, as opposed to a barrage of lead. He may still wear his vest, but at least he didn’t have to pop anxiety pills anymore. Well, at least now when he took them it wasn’t because of having lived in Miami.

Woodside was a rural neighborhood filled with farms in the 18th and 19th century. Residential development did not begin until the 1860’s by Benjamin W. Hitchcock. It was the perfect place to develop a suburban neighborhood by being near the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR). Transportation had once benefited farmers to transport their goods, but slowly that dissipated. Transportation became more centered towards residential use. Because maneuvering throughout the boroughs became less of a hassle, it attracted more residence and as a result the land value increased. The value increase forced farmers to sell their property to the country and move elsewhere.

Early 19th century United States was when alcohol began to become a complication. The Prohibition began January 17, 1920, which is when the Eighteenth Amendment went into effect. Women in the 19th century blamed many of society’s problems on alcohol. The women of this time took direct action into getting rid of saloons and all liquor. “The crusade sought to persuade saloon-keepers to destroy their beverages, close their doors, and enter some other line of business.” (http://prohibition.osu.edu/womans-crusade-1873-74). One powerful woman, Eliza Daniel Stewart, spoke out against liquor. She gave a speech which helped her lead the formation of the British Woman’s Temperance Association. Women disapproved alcohol because they believe alcohol caused problems in society.
The Hampton Roads region is no exception to the recent nationwide interest in local breweries and craft beers. Although certain state regulations initially prevented craft breweries from existing to their full capacity in this area, some breweries still began to achieve success. O’Connor Brewing Company made interest in these beers possible in this area because of its immediate success after a long trail of failed brewing companies (“O'Connor Brewing Company” NP). Due to former regulations, most brewing companies closed within months of starting up their businesses. Previously, Virginia law prevented breweries from selling alcohol at its respective establishments, a key part of upkeep for any local brewery (Riggan NP). Although the
One significant risk impacting the bourbon supply chain is a shortage of barrels. There is a federal law requiring that for a whiskey to be called bourbon it must age for two full years in a “new” oak barrel. One would think that this law would cause an issue in that the supply of lumber to create the barrels was not sufficient. That, however, is not the case. The actual issue at hand is that there is a shortage of loggers. While the bourbon industry is urging at the moment and it does create significant revenue for the lumber industry, that alone is not sufficient to keep logging companies in business. Thus, a lack of loggers has resulted in a reduction in the amount of “new” oak barrels available for aging bourbon (Lariviere, 2015)..
