Obama attacking a problem that doesn't exist. It's just another power grab by the tyrant Obama, whose sole goal is to destroy America. There is no climate change, there is no global warming, it's all a lie. You climate change alarmists are hypocrites if you aren't living in a cave and riding a bicycle. No, 2015 is not the warmest year on record but in fact there has been no warming…

QuincyGuy - Shields leaves QND before even starting - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Everywhere Shields coached, he left a program that was continued by his predecessors. Like him or not, you don't find many coaches with a record like his. I've watched him coach over the years and he does know the game and teaches it to his players well. You can't blame anyone for wanting to earn a living for himself and family. What was normal 30 years ago isn't today. Believe…

Does this surprise ANYBODY? Many people stated publicly that this wasn't a good fit from the minute Shields was hired. As a matter of fact, Matt Schuckman said months ago that he wouldn't be surprised if Shields left QND before he ever coached a game there. Good call, Schuck.... The real question is: What possessed the powers that be at QND to hire this guy in the first place?

Company to build $24 million facility in Tennessee

 

Mt. Sterling, Ill., (August 26, 2013) Dot Foods, Inc., the nations’ largest food redistributor, has chosen Dyersburg, Tennessee as the site of the company’s ninth distribution center. Construction of this new, $24 million facility will begin this fall in the Dyersburg Industrial Park on State Highway 211 and will bring 157 new jobs to Dyersburg. The company has already appointed 25-year Dot Foods veteran Tim Loyd as the new facility’s general manager. A rendering of the new facility is available via Flickr. 

“I want to congratulate Dot Foods on their announcement of this new facility, and I thank them for their investment in Dyer County and Tennessee,” said Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam. “Our Jobs4TN strategy focuses on leveraging Tennessee’s unique assets to create and grow new jobs across the state, and today’s announcement helps us toward our goal of becoming the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

 “I am so very excited about the announcement of Dot Foods’ plan to locate a new facility in Dyersburg,” said Dyersburg Mayor John Holden. “Dot Foods, family-owned-and-operated for more than 50 years, is the nation’s first and largest food redistributor. Their core values, integrity and commitment to their customers and employees are the driving force of their success. We, as a community are very fortunate to have selected as the site of their newest operation.” 

The distribution center is scheduled to open in September 2014, and a temporary office will open in September 2013. The new facility will be 166,494 square feet in size and include frozen, refrigerated and ambient storage; a 125,000-square-foot warehouse; and a 9,500-square-foot truck and tractor garage. It will service Dot Foods distributor customers in middle and western Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, and western Kentucky. 

“We are excited about the opportunity to open our newest distribution center in Dyersburg,” said John Tracy, CEO of Dot Foods. “We conduct extensive logistics analyses on where and when to open a new distribution center and we chose Dyersburg because of the community’s support, proximity to other Dot Foods locations and customers, as well as its cultural fit with our company. We’re also equally excited to appoint Tim Loyd as the new facility’s general manager.” 

Having spent more than 25 years with Dot Foods, Loyd most recently served as general manager for the company’s distribution center in Cambridge City, Indiana, a location he helped open in 2007.

 

“Dot Foods and Dot Transportation plan to hire 157 employees within our first three years in Dyersburg,” notes Loyd. “This includes truck drivers, managers, supervisors, management trainees, warehouse workers, garage technicians, maintenance technicians, clerical employees and more. The great family atmosphere in Dyersburg, along with a quality workforce, will translate into great service for our customers in the Mid-south.” 

Dot Foods and Dot Transportation offer market-competitive wages and a top-tier benefit package including health insurance, prescription drug insurance, dental, vision, life insurance, 401(k) with company match, profit sharing and college tuition reimbursement. 

Dot Transportation will begin hiring truck drivers immediately Dot Foods will be recruiting management staff immediately. All truck driver positions will be posted on www.DriveforDot.com and all open positions will be posted on the careers page at www.DotFoods.com

This will be the ninth distribution center for Dot Foods. Dyersburg is located just 75 miles from Memphis in northwest Tennessee and has a regional workforce of approximately 123,000 people. Dot Foods also has distribution centers in Modesto, California; Vidalia, Georgia; Burley, Idaho; Cambridge City, Indiana; Williamsport, Maryland; Liverpool, New York; Ardmore, Oklahoma; and its main distribution center in Mt. Sterling.
