Good morning Kelvin,

I appreciate your perspective on the Roscoe's. I too worked for them in the early 80's. It was quite an experience. I think of it now as retail/convenience store boot camp. I learned a lot; and will never do it again.

Question for you. Now that I've tracked the trial results, I haven't been able to find news of the sentencing, which was supposed to be June 6th for Ned. Do you know if that came down?

Thanks,
Kevin Brennan

My understanding is that sentencing was postponed. I suggest checking the Napa Valley Register frequently for updates since Ned is in fact a Napa resident, not Fairfield. If I see something I will be sure to post it. You can also check the court website for the judge presiding over the case. You should be able to find that information online easily enough.

I knew Ned back in those very days and found him to be arrogant and generally full of himself. He was one of those guys who was born on third base and thought he'd hit a triple. He gets what he gets.

I worked for the Roscoe's from 1969 until they sold the grocery chain in 1997. I found them to be hard task masters who demanded alot but who also treated their employees fairly.

What they did in this bank affair was wrong but I firmly believe they thought they could pay the money back in time. People who are in extreme financial difficulty will do things they normally wouldn't do.

I worked for the company part-time out of Benicia in the late 90's. Met Sally the daughter and sister of John and Ned who seemed to be a very nice lady. Feel terrible for her and the rest of the family. Sentencing date is now set for December 14

Ned's friend

Sentencing is now Feb. 8, 2012.
