Happy Birthday to You !
Happy Birthday to You !
Many of you are probably confused by the news reports you have heard about the Patient Affordable Health Care Act. This is what most folks
call Obama-Care. As I have been saying for some time it should be called the Patient Un-affordable Health Care Act. When it was passed
almost 4 years ago without a single Republican vote, the Democrats even admitted they had not read it, they just passed it. At the time,
millions of folks thought that it was fine because they were going to get FREE health care.
Once the powers in charge in Washington realized what it was really going to do, they delayed it 3 years so the horrible effects would not
start until after the President was reelected. Now that he is safely in office for another term, they have delayed it again. Why delay it again?
The reason is quite simple, the Democrats want to stay in power. In about 15 months we will have new congressional elections and it is feared
by the Democrats that they may well lose the Senate because of Obama-Care. So they have delayed it until January of 2015 so that it will not
take effect until after the November 2014 elections. Senator Landrieu is asking the folks of Louisiana to keep her in the Senate, yet she was
the deciding vote on Obama-Care. If she would have voted against it, it would have failed.
What are the terrible effects of Obama-Care?
Since January of this year an additional 2% of your check has been withheld, all because the government needs more money.
Starting in January of 2014 every American has to have insurance. If you do not buy insurance, you will be fined by the
The part of Obama-Care that said your employer had to pay for it has been delayed until January of 2015.
Why did the President delay forcing the employers to pay for their employees insurance?
Millions of employees are going to have their jobs eliminated or their hours cut because their companies cannot
afford the cost of the insurance.
Employees around America are going to be furious when they find out that they are going to be charged almost 10 % of their salary to
pay for Obama-Care.
Hard working employees are going to be livid when they realize that Obama-Care is not free and that in addition to 2% already being
taken out of their check, another 9 ½ % will mean they are paying 11 ½ % of their check so we can fund Obama-Care.
So now you know why Obama-Care is being pushed back until after next year’s elections. Remember this when someone asks you to vote for
Mary Landrieu, it is her fault you are going to have to pay 11 ½ % of your salary for Health Care and additional payroll taxes, all she had to do
was vote no…but instead she voted yes for the tax increases. ( IS THIS REALLY “FREE HEALTH CARE” ?)

Profile of a Champion
B&G’s Profile of a Champion this month is AC Tonya Vital from Lake Charles.
Tonya is originally from Breaux Bridge La. After high school she attended both
Southern University in Baton Rouge and ULL in Lafayette majoring in Business
While attending college, Tonya began working for Popeye’s Fried Chicken. She
was quickly promoted to Assistant Manager and on the day she turned 21 she was
promoted to Restaurant General Manager. She helped turn around many Popeye’s
locations around Lafayette. In 2006 after 7 years with Popeye’s, Tonya decided to
leave that concept and accepted a new challenge with Ryan’s Steak House. She
worked her way up from Associate Manager to Assistant Manager and then
Restaurant General Manager. She stayed in casual dining for 3 years and in 2009 she
joined the B&G team in Lake Charles. She became the Ruth St. RGM and in 2010
was named B&G’s Rookie of the Year. The following year she received the Colonel
Taco Award for 2011. In 2012 she re-opened the Prein Lake store where she was the
market training manager. One year later she was promoted to Area Coach for the
Lake Charles market.
When Tonya’s not doing an awesome job running her market she enjoys shopping
for shoes, dinning out with friends and admiring art.
Anyone that has had the pleasure of working with Tonya will tell you that she is
thoughtful, professional and passionate about what she does.
Thanks Tonya for all your hard work and dedication, you truly are a

DRAIN MAINTENANCE - TIPS TO CONTROL
FLYING INSECTS, FRUIT FLIES, and BREEDING AREAS
-Keep any garbage areas free of refuse and spillage
-Always use plastic bags and keep garbage containers clean
-Clean all food/drink/syrup/ grease/ or flour spills as they occur.
-Do not allow grease and refuse build-up under or behind equipment
-Keep all drains clean and free-flowing ( floor drains, sink drains, etc.)
-Clean drains weekly using detergent and sanitizing solutions.
-Do not prop open doors during deliveries.
These controls will also keep drains from overflow causing extra clean-ups.

Congratulations, Tiffany Ross ARGM of
Taco Bell # 26916 Baton Rouge, La. on
the birth of her son, Nicholas Devon
Rosser born August 5th. Making a big
entrance at 4 pounds 8 ounces and 18 ¾
“Here is a simple but powerful rule….always give people more than they expect to get”
“If we don’t take care of the customer, somebody else will”
RGM in training, Christie Long, was closing Pineville Taco Bell with her AC, Eric Ross, when they had
a softball team stop by after their game in Alexandria. Eric saw the girls walking away from the door
going back to the bus. He went and spoke with the coach who said their game had run late and that
they had been to several restaurants in Pineville and no one would allow them in to order. He told her
that if they did not mind waiting on the food because they did not have a lot of staff in the store he
would allow them in to order and eat. She was more than happy with that and he allowed all of them in.
Eric knows the policy states that no one should be allowed in the lobby after close, but Eric chose to
make a decision to take care of their customers. AWESOME ERIC !!
Christie and her Team rose to the occasion and satisfied their customers. GREAT JOB TEAM
