JENO KING OF THE BEANSPROUTS!
He negotiated with Jimmy Hoffa…he is the brains and brawn behind Chun King Foods…and dozens of other top name brands in the food industry. This month, this titan of industry turned 90 years old.
I had the pleasure recently to sit down with Duluth’s multi millionaire entreprenuer….and he is still a force in our community.
Oofta! We should all be this active at ninty….click Jeno’s photo to see the story of America’s coolest boss over 90!

I am at a certain age where I am closer to retirement than midlife crisis…and Oofta between upcoming winter heating bills and ongoing pain at the pump I truly worry that my 401K will see me through the many years to come.
Funny I never feared that possibility two years ago. My retirement fund was climbing weekly and the visions of security in my golden years seemed assured. Heck I shop at Walmart! In fact my Golden Parachute included a job as “greeter.” Oofta, how many of us have thought about that possibility to supplement our Social Security.
Today banks are failing, the stock market is plunging and there’s a waiting list for those jobs.
I’ve never squandered my money…now the money I do have seems even more dear. And that leads me to a idea I have been mulling over. MAYBE it is time to buy a scooter. They are gas sippers, I still have my balance and would probably survive a drive into town and back…and frankly they look like they’d be fun!
My purchase would also stimulate the economy.
I imagine the wind blowing thru my hair as I wave happily to my neighbors and the town folks. Putt, putt, putting thru town…with the songs from Easy Rider playing on my 25 year old Walkman. I’d like a little basket up front for my dog. He loves to ride shotgun. I am still mulling over models. Safety or style? Practicality or flamboyance?
I am leaning toward something in red…but the training wheels? They have to go!
