After founder Ron Zappe died in June 2010, President Rod Olson started sifting through e-mails that Zappe had exchanged five years earlier with interested buyers. Olson, who began his career in sales at the company’s outset in 1985, considered bids from public companies and a private equity firm before agreeing to sell to Hanover, Pa.-based Utz Quality Foods in January. Olson says Utz’s undisclosed offer best suited Zappe’s wishes for the future of the business. Above all other sale considerations, Zappe wanted assurance that his grandchildren and great-grandchildren would be able to enjoy Zapp’s distinctly flavored, kettle-cooked potato chips. Zappe also sought expanded distribution, brand quality retention and security for about 200 employees at factories in Gramercy, California and Pennsylvania.
I spent many hours practicing shooting at a deer dummy and a fusion block to prepare for bow hunting. This hunting experience happened three years ago. I was hunting on our hunting lease called the Gibson place. At the edge of the forest is a favorite huge oak tree that I love to hunt out of. My brother, Brandon, and I had planted some corn near the edge of the forest so that the deer would have plenty to eat close to my hunting spot.
President: William McKinley Political Party: Republican Years as President: 4 Years Defeated Party: Benjamin Harrison Political Background: When the Civil War ended, McKinley returned to Ohio to begin his career in law and politics. He studied law at Albany Law School and, after passing the bar exam in 1867, began his legal practice in Canton, Ohio. At a Canton picnic in 1869—the year he entered politics—McKinley met and began courting his future wife, Ida Saxton, marrying her two years later. He was twenty-seven and she was twenty-three at the time. Although practicing law was his profession, being involved with the Republican organization secured his future.
When the typical sports enthusiast thinks about golf, they don’t just think about the beautiful courses located around the world. Instead, they think solely on Tiger Woods and his well-known pumped fist celebration to one of his many great shots. He did what was thought of as impossible by winning four major titles in a row at just 25 years of age. Starting golf just as he began to walk and becoming what he is today while facing racism and discrimination is the finest example of determination and perseverance in the sports world to this day. He was born on December 30, 1975 and started carrying his putter around with him instead of a rattle at just 18 months old.
Case Study: Earth Fare Overview/Introduction Earth Fare, Inc. (Earth Fare) was originally founded in 1975 by Roger Derrough as “Dinner for the Earth,” the first natural food store in Asheville, North Carolina.

It was said that the house just set there for 17 years after Jefferson death before the next family took over it. That would be the Levy Family. They tried to keep everything restored to the original look that Jefferson had. He also told us that Jefferson was always adding on to the house the whole time he stayed there. I had a lovely time during the tour and I will be taking another trip out there to see the rest during the spring or summer
Golf has completely changed my life, my personality, and who I am ever since I took it up in Fall of 2007. I was on a trip to Wisconsin with some old friends, and two of them had begun to golf, along with another good friend, since I had moved across the country. I'd never played actual golf before, barring mini golf and Wii Golf. It seemed like a pretty boring game, but I decided to try it out one day when they were going out for 18 holes. I borrowed a set from a friend, went out, and even though the course wouldn't let me play because of a tournament, I was hooked.
