HAGERSTOWN — Hiring will begin soon for distribution center

HAGERSTOWN -- A food distribution center opening this summer near Williamsport will begin hiring in about two months, even though winter has delayed construction four to six weeks.

DOT Foods Inc. of Mount Sterling, Ill., plans to employ about 70 workers, including truck drivers, warehouse workers and clerical workers, said company president Pat Tracy. Eventually, the center could employ 200 workers.

DOT Foods is closing its plant in New Castle, Del., and fewer than 15 workers at the Delaware facility are relocating to Hagerstown.

The company plans to open the dry storage section of the plant by June and the refrigerated section by July. The Hagerstown plant will serve DOT customers from Maine to North Carolina.

The company distributes foo from manufactuarers to restaurants, hospitals and other businesses that serve the public.

The 34-year-old private companu, which employs 500 workers nationwide, posted $210 million in sales in 1992.

Woman charged in plot to kill ex-boss


FREDERICK -- A Walkersville woman has been arrested in connection with bank fraud and tampering with a federal witness, said Danny O. Coulson, special agent in charge of the Maryland-Delaware division of the FBI.

Ms. Prevost worked as a night nurse for Austin Kemp's wife until the woman died in October. In December, someone withdrew $100,000 from the Frederick man's bank account.

The bank reported the unauthorized withdrawal and the FBI began investigating.

The FBI claims that when the investigation focused on Ms. Prevost, she allegedly tried to arrange to have Mr. Kemp killed.
