COLUMBUS, Ohio (9/3/08)--The CEO of Bob Evans Farms had good things to say about credit unions in an interview with The New York Times (Aug. 30). Steven A.

My parents borrowed money at the beginning of each school year and hurried to try to pay back that loan before the next school year started," Davis told the Times. For the full story, use the link.
