The article provides information about Sam Turner, CEO of Calfee Co. of Dalton Inc. Turner is known among his colleagues as a leader in taking store operators' concerns to state and federal legislators. His interest in legislative issues grew as his involvement in the industry deepened, starting with Georgia politics and the Georgia Association of Convenience Stores. But, as is typical of Turner, he redirects talk of his own work in lobbying and credits other key players. Turner's enthusiasm for his work never seems to wane. Currently, his stores are going through a complete re-imaging, with a more modern store design and new colors.
