    CONFERENCE CALL

    The CBC remind's me of Neilson...can take any set of numbers...twist,turn and make something look good.

    Just a few notes...I could write allll day.

    Did I misunderstand Singer when he said that price increases did not help in the 4th quarter year over year sales? Maybe, they didn't have a price increase in the 4th quarter(but, maybe they did on some items) but if they had ANY price increases in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd quarter'...they would help in the 4th quarter year over years sales...tha.

    I didn't know that they had already lost 15 million in sales from someone(mostly Wal Mart? tha) when I wrote the post early in the AM before the CC...Wal Mart is not going to tolerate these actions...they are trying to teach but, some people never learn...take all the charts into that sales presentation and see what Wally World tell's you to do...make sure that it is good paper cause they will tell you to wipe your rear end with it or like one buyer did to me; just roll it into a ball and throw it into the trash can...and, I ain't talking about no one store operation...100 or so locations...

    Could 911 have been overloaded yetersday in that area...the VanI's were probably about to have heart attacks when the caller asked about the dividend. Singer wanting hire V.P.'s, expensive offices, buy, buy, buy...the VanI's wanting to keep those coupons coming...something has got to give:))

    Sales Rep.'s...trained over 300 less last year...could it be that was due to route cut's...only 1,400 or maybe not that many now...what was last year's total turnover number or this year's total...what % of turnover is that...how can sales grow with constant turnover?

    Salem, maybe that business school can teach me these answers...I have some more questions but, later...

    • >>>If all your reports/recommendations are so stellar, and you have done such an outstanding you; why do you “Spunk Lance, Inc?”<<<

      Having you been taking notes of the treatment that I received from YOUR VTC?

      Placed under WRONG policy letter's in my opinion...which placed me into a short monetary shortfall(could this have been done on purpose:) tha. )...comments; we will break him and he will lose everything that he ever worked for from the higher up's...job elimination while off due to on-the-job injuries-then, put back into being one year thereafter:))

      >>>It has been rewarding to me that my valued customers have contacted me on my health status more then anyone from Lance.<<<


      >>>I do not want you to respond to this letter as you did not respond to any other letters that I have written to you; which, says something about your interest in me or my past<<<

      UNDATED letter wanting me to sign...:))

      Apparently, you have not done ANY research or you have received incorrect information from the VTC...

      Now,I wander what the people are saying that was boosting about what they did or didn't do to me? And, I am glad that the Re's(re-hire's-rejects) are still with the company...with this type of leadership...the company has but one direction to go...the same way that it has been going in recent years.

      The next time someone write's a letter to the BOD...I would hope that someone does a little more research than was done on mine...

      But, in the long run; they did me a favor. Thanks.

    • If all your reports/recommendations are so stellar, and you have done such an outstanding you; why do you “Spunk Lance, Inc?”

    • >>>So, was I Fired as you stated$<<<

      Why wouldn't you answer?:))

      >>>It's your dime "Big Boy Go Ahead!!!"<<<

      Actually, could it be YOUR DIME(S) indirectly?:)) And, I don't consider them dimes(along with the bank(s)...

      THANK YOU!

      PERFORMANCE

      Ask your recent past CEO about the letter that was written to him...along with some EARNED items(SALES AWARDS).

      A few lines from it:

      >>>The letter to Lance, Inc. on the position at Midwest Biscuti Co, which they did not like. I still do not regret my decision.

      All of my awards which will have meaning to you than to myself now.

      I did my job in each and every position that I held...I promoted Lance in every way possible during that period. However, today I will not eat Lance products let along promote Lance, Inc. in any form. It has been rewarding to me that my valued customner have contacted me on my health status more then anyone from Lance.

      I do not want you to respond to this letter as you did not respond to any other letters that I have written to you; which, says something about your interest in me or my past<<<

      Now, that is leadship straight from the CTV's business school...:)

    • It's your dime "Big Boy Go Ahead!!!"

      Salem

    • >>>HELL Yes, if you do not wish to sued...<<<

      Don't worry...MY attorneys are looking into statements made by you on my release...

      >>>Look Sport… your tenure with Lance, Inc. was deplorable at best…<<<

      Can you read? What are JOB REVIEWS for? It was OK to call an apple an apple while you were making money head's over heal's off me...(can you say 24 cents divident) but, when the TRUTH comes home to roost...you don't want to hear it.

      I will be glad to see you in court were the TRUTH will come out$$$$$...you see, I do save my paper work...just ask you goooood ole boys at the tower. Also, ask them if I know something about courtroom's$$$$$

      As I said...I didn't make you look like you do to everyone...your yes people did...

      So, was I Fired as you stated$

    • HELL Yes, if you do not wish to sued...

      Look Sport… your tenure with Lance, Inc. was deplorable at best…

      Your only outlet now is to lash out at anyone, i.e. “Family,” and do your best to ridicule them…

    • >>>Go try and impress someone who really cares… “We, I AM NOT!!!”

      Salem A. Van Every, III<<<

      This is just a little information from last supervior's letter...then, some notes from the last Sales Audit Evaluation...

      Letter,

      You live far from your major accounts and travel to and from has always inflated expenses...(:)) Well, guess who approved the place he lived before he purchased the house? No one could tell him how to cut expenses and do his job properly...)

      Time...Time away from work with DOCTOR VISTS and car repairs are big problems(:))) Well, guess where his injuries come from...can you say ON-THE-JOB. Guess who's car it was?)

      Sales Audit...

      He does an excellent job with his contact accounts.

      He is faced with several managers that he has little respect for due to their PERFORMANCE over MANY years. Cooperation with these managers and he is a problem...(tha, the person WRITING the LETTER would not correct the poor mangement problem...he's the one who had the authority over them)...Newer mangers who PERFORM and want to LEARN find him VERY helpful.

      All accounts that he has contact with are in GOOD order. Where problems exist with past dues he handles promptly and collects Lance's money!

      All reports are in as due on time.

      He will call an apple an apple. His patience is limited for POOR PERFORMERS as they increase his work load...HE HAS OVER THE YEARS HAD TO BECOME VERY EFFECTIVE AT RESOLVING POOR SERVICE PROBLEMS.

      He is very effective at selling a program that we can handle. If there is a problem in this area it is that he is too CAUTIOUS. It sometimes appears he is holding back due to a lack of confindence in the ABILITIES of sales rep. and branch mangers...(THA. Who was in charge of these poor performer's! The guy writing the letter and he may be still working for the company???:))) )

      Very effective with his supermarket chains in getting promotions.

      DOES HE NEED TO GO ON"? For goodness sake...don't get hurt on the job and need to go to the doctor!

      Salem, how's the reaserch from the good olde boys who looks like made a FOOL out of YOU...They probably say thank you for being sooo uninformed and giving them a promotion or two$$$$...do you think that just maybe the people was CYA...as the paper work that went to the home office dicussed personnal:)) Also, maybe the people wanted me to help do THEIR job so that the people could get the hell out of dodge back to the cookie tower shadow? Tooo much pressure anywhere else...

      Man, I don't need to post much more of my REVIEWS...my e-mail box is full of job offer's:)) All say that I can live anywhere that I want to...even on the moon...if, I can sell more than they can deliver!:))))

      Can anyone see where the 24 cents dividend has gone? Ask people to do something that they HAVE NOT DONE or CANNOT DO...Salem, is that how the business school you and the CBC went to taught effective management?

    • >>>Go try and impress someone who really cares… “We, I AM NOT!!!”

      Salem A. Van Every, III<<<

      Mr. Salem A. VanI. III...have you'all got out of Duke Medical Center(local hospital could not handle the SIZE...or, number) yet for FEET IN MOUTH??

      The old Tom Cat(Frito-Lay) says, "here kitty(Lance), kitty"$ It appears that they are trying(and, have gotten at least one) $KU'$ in the cookie asile next to the CBC...could there be more to come$ Lance, thank you$

      What happen to the Wise deal? Is the CBC going to wait until they have NO space in the chip asile? In my Wal Mart store...both Cape Dud and Wise has about the space that only Cape Dud had recently...here kitty, kitty...

      Old, for the days of 24 cents dividend...Salem, you can bet that the Black Robin Hood will take away you FREE ride on taxes on the dividend:)) Is that moral? All your employees pay full taxes on their income while you pay only 1/2 on your dividend income...which, probably is all of yours...or most:))

      Got to get money from someone to pay for what Old George W. has spent$$$

    • Sunshine Man, you need to move on with your life. If you don't like Lance and the way the stock is performing, sell it and buy something else. But be aware every CPG stock is in the dumper due to escalating prices. Have you bought groceries lately? Even at Wally World? Have you filled your gas tank lately? Wake up and smell the devaluation of the dollar!

        >>>If you don't like Lance and the way the stock is performing, sell it and buy something else.<<<

        What if you were short on the stock?

        >>>Have you bought groceries lately? Even at Wally World? Have you filled your gas tank lately?<<<

        That is all the reason more to be or become frugal...Lance 8-count $2.28, Autin 12-count $1.88, FL 8-count $1.50...so, which should people buy?

        Could Lance be higher because of Poor Management and the dividend payout(gotta' keep those VanI's happy)? I do believe that the other companies use wheat, flour in their products...or, am I mistaken?

        Open that door for the competition...they love it when Lance just GIVES them business.

        Wal Mart will continue to give Lance some hints...then, they will take serious action:)) Do you think that they are worried about the dividend payout?

    • >>>FIRED for NOT PERFORMING…”<<<

      Per Form 243(payroll information)...Policy Letter #55 ran its course at that time he was notified by mail that he would be relieved.

      >>>I DO NOT KNOW, a blood relative or extended family member with your morels… in fact, I will go as far as saying, “you are destitute of moral character”<<<


      This WAS NOT THE policy that was in effect when my on-the-job injuries occured...Policy #38-#66 was. Was that morally right? After over 20 quality years of service...

      If you or anyone would like copies of any of this information...one of my hooter sec.'s would be more than glad to copy you...

      Mr. Salem VanI...I didn't make an idiot out of you...your YES people that want to save their position's(maybe even get a promotion) that have been feeding you the WRONG information did.

      >>>Go try and impress someone who really cares… “We, I AM NOT!!!”<<<

      I don't have to impress anyone...my SALES RECORD speaks for itself...how has the company's record been with all of those YES people runnning the show? They have run off more GOOD people than I could every hire in a life time.

      And, I believe the HUMAN RESORCE manager was there at the time also...did he approve of this treatment...I knew him personnally too...took him to the airport after an Orlando meeting when NO ONE else would...including the person running the meeting or his second hand person...

      Waiting for a responce...
