    NEW YORK (AP) -- A continued slide in oil prices gave Wall Street a moderate advance Friday


    'No food cost excuses' and 'put up or shut up' time are right around the corner for BOBE!

    • Funny, kind of the response I was looking for!

      You said exactly the kind of thing that the stockholders need to hear....

      "And even if he was handling some of his personal business at the office, I don't know of any of his projects/programs that weren't completed or hindered because of lack of his attention. I think Stewart searched desperately to find some grounds for termination and when he couldn't, he held Rn to a different set of standards than his peers. LC took care of all his rental properties at the office and his 4H stuff, and Joe Gillen handled his cattle farming from the office - just to give you a couple examples."

      This statement shows that all the big whigs at the office likely have more on their minds while AT WORK than they should have! I would argue that you could not know that Stewart had it out for Rinzy. I mean you didnt share anything that would make me believe that anyway. Who is to say that; that is not a rumor?

      Im not touchy, I just thought that your statement presented a mindset at BOBE that you are who you know! Having managers who behave under this company philosophy is dangerous to the company's interests.

    • I totally agree with lawmiller5 and the good chicken. BOBE continues to spend huge Co $ to a PT CEO. MAKES NO SENSE!!!

    • 1st of all - do you believe every rumor you hear? There were lots of rumors that circulated about RN, but NONE of them that were valid or proven. Stories fly anytime someone leaves the company. A smart person will learn to believe 1/2 of what they see and none of what they hear.

      I wasn't calling u a hypocrite - but the company big wigs certainly are. I'm not saying RN was right or wrong to take care of horse business at the office. But I KNOW he was singled out and no one else was. Think about this for a minute.....do you know anyone who headed up more successful restaurant programs than RN? And even if he was handling some of his personal business at the office, I don't know of any of his projects/programs that weren't completed or hindered because of lack of his attention. I think Stewart searched desperately to find some grounds for termination and when he couldn't, he held Rn to a different set of standards than his peers. LC took care of all his rental properties at the office and his 4H stuff, and Joe Gillen handled his cattle farming from the office - just to give you a couple examples.

      I didn't say Rn got you your position. RN was in a position to make recommendation for promotions based on employee performance. IF you exceeded your job expectations, then it was more than likely that he recommended you for promotion......a little touchy aren't you?

      Yes, definitely at Bob's --- sometimes its not what u know but who u know that will determine your fate!

    • Oh yeah, its coming into focus alright,... like the Titanic in the light of the divers who went down to take a peek.

    • Lawmiller5, Grove City is a large village if that is what you want to call it with a population over 30,000 and growing.
      A company that is in as much trouble as BOBE with revenue and earnings sure don't need a part time CEO. Larry Corbin did indeed win the seat at Grove City. I think like you a half million dollars is a lot of money to pay a part time CEO that is in as much trouble with the revenue and earnings as BOBE. How can one justify spending as much time as a councilman and turn a company around that is in as much trouble as BOBE?
      Just a thought for investors and stockholders.

      THE GOOD CHICKEN

    • Rinzy is gone. Time has come to focus on the future.

    • You have been told many times BOBE is in deep do do long ago. Stewart Owens saw the hand writing on the wall. He messed the company up by getting rid of all the good employees and then jumped ship.

      THE GOOD CHICKEN

      • Good Chicken ~ Amen...Stewart got rid of all the company's good employees...then jumped ship. Bring back the good employees who know how to run the company.

      • Chickman: I can't believe I'm even gracing your continued negative pining with a response, but it sure would help me if I knew for sure you own one single share of the company? If not, then why would it make a dips difference to you whether Bob stock goes to $15 or $30?

        In after hours trading Monday night/Tuesday morning, investors did a $1.88 up tick. I assume they don't read and/or follow your counsel? You remind me of the hypocondriac (sp) who finally died and inscribed on the tombstone "I always told you I was sick".

        Cheerio to all for a wonderful Christmas season and New Year--Chickman included!!!
