THE SALINA JOURNAL Money THURSDAY, MAY 1, 1997 03 T BOSTER LUMBER BRIEFLY Star Lumber to buy Boster Lumber Owner of last locally owned lumberyard will retire after managing store for two years By ALF ABUHAJLEH The Snlinn Journal : Salina's last locally owned lumberyard will be sold Friday to a Wichita-based lumber and hardware chain. ' Charles Boster, owner of Boster Lumber Co. ;at 1210 W. Crawford, said Wednesday he has ;agreed to sell the business to Star Lumber and 'Supply Co. Boster, 63, will remain general manager of !the store for two years before he retires. ; "This was a really good opportunity for me ;to sell the lumberyard," Boster said. "I've known the people at Star Lumber and Supply for years, and they are a good partner for the icommunity and our clientele." i Boster Lumber's 11 employees will remain, ;and the store will hire between five and 10 'workers within a year, said Jon Davis, senior Vice president of Star Contractor Supply, a di- vision of Star Lumber and Supply. "We anticipate some growth in the next 12 months and will most likely increase the work force in Salina," Davis said. Star Lumber and Supply will buy Boster Lumber's equipment and inventory. The company will lease the building and the land the lumberyard sits on from Boster for four years. At that time, Star Lumber and Supply will have the option to buy the real estate, Boster said. The lumberyard will change its name on Monday to Star Contractor Supply, Davis said. The lumberyard will be closed Saturday for inventory but will in the future remain open during normal business hours, he said. The acquisition of Boster Lumber, which had revenue of $30 million last year, is part of Star Lumber and Supply's expansion plan, Davis said. "It's a good, well-known lumberyard that sells primarily to (building) contractors — the type we want," Davis said. "We are looking to buy lumberyards in towns with steady growth." Star Lumber and Supply, owned by the Goebel family, Wichita, owns a distribution center and two retail hardware and lumber outlets in Wichita. The company also owns a lumberyard in Hutchinson. The firm has annual sales of about $80 million, Davis said, and employs some 800 people. Davis said the company manufactures a range of building materials that will be sold at the Salina store, including roof and floor trusses. Also, the company operates mills to make doors, windows and countertops. Boster Lumber was begun in 1966 when Boster and Joe Easterday founded Easterday- Boster Lumber. Boster bought out Easterday in 1978 and changed the name to Boster Lumber. Boster said Salina had six locally owned lumberyards in the 1960s. Boster said Salina's building contractors and home improvers will not notice many changes when the new owner takes over. "They want to keep everything the same," Boster said. "The business will be operated the same way that I have done things for 31 years." NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE Name Div. PE Vol. Last Chg. - A • A ADT 8849 27% + V. !

Americans on spending spree in first quarter WASHINGTON — American consumers went on a spending spree in the first quarter, pushing economic growth to a 10-year high. But hints emerged that the torrid pace soon would subside to more normal levels. The stock market extended its recent rally, Hearing a record high. The economy exploded at a seasonally adjusted 5.6 percent annual rate, the highest since the last quarter of 1987, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. That comes on top of robust 3.8 percent growth in the last three months of 1996. Consumer spending, representing about two-thirds of economic activity, raced ahead at a 6.4 percent rate in the January-March quarter, nearly double the 3.4 percent pace of the previous quarter. Tobacco firms are insured for liability LONDON — Insurance companies around the world, including Commercial Union and Royal Sun Alliance in Britain, face the prospect of having to pick up a $300 billion compensation bill for smoking-related deaths. Painstaking research by financial analyst Paul Hodges of investment bank Schroders has thrown up the existence of scores of product-liability policies quietly taken out by the big cigarette companies, such as Philip Morris in America and BAT Industries in Britain, over the past 60 years. While most of these policies contain exclusion clauses, previously thought to rule out claims from victims of smoking-related illnesses, Hodges' work has shown that the poor wording of the clauses has granted the tobacco firms the chance to offload just about all their liabilities. AT&T to hike business long-distance rates NEW YORK — AT&T Corp. will raise prices on some business long- distance services to make up for monthly payments of $47.2 million it's required to make to local phone companies that operate pay phones, the company said Wednesday. The No. 1 U.S. long-distance company said that effective today it will boost prices 7 percent for interstate phone calls to toll-free numbers and raise rates 2 percent for interstate and international calls made by businesses. The increases, which follow others two months ago and are the largest for voice phone services AT&T officials can recall, didn't prompt any moves from competitors to match the industry leader. Judge throws out verdict against Digital NEW YORK — A judge threw out a $5.3 million jury verdict awarded to an executive secretary who claimed keyboards by • Digital Equipment Corp. gave her a debilitating wrist injury. However, the judge upheld another award of $274,000 given a ' former billing clerk who contract ed repetitive stress injury. U.S. District Judge Jack Wein- ' stein said Tuesday he would call ' for a new trial in secretary's case 1 — the largest verdict ever against a keyboard company — after it • was revealed the woman failed to^ disclose a neck condition. Digital claimed the neck condi-' tion was responsible for Patricia • Geressy's wrist injuries. Her attorney, Steven Phillips, said he : would appeal Weinstein's ruling."
