Read more...
Victoria Schiabone, right, and Sherry Fletcher design clothes they hope will appeal to school-age customers as well as adults.

The idea of shredded clothing may conjure up visions of frayed jeans and shirts on their last legs, but the staff at LilKats Shreds have turned it into a way to breathe new life into clothes.

Owner Victoria Schiabone and her friend Sherry Fletcher, who began shredding clothes several years ago, have opened a storefront at 407 Oak Street, and carry a variety of dresses, shirts and pants, all with the unique “shredded” style.

“It started as a hobby in my living room, but it outgrew the living room,” Fletcher said.

Misty Mountain: Brewing beer with a big heart

Read more...
Matt Camarillo, right, and his father, Mark, brew a variety of microbeers at their Winchuck River facility.

“We’re a small brewery with a big heart. His heart is larger than yours or mine,” said  Mark Camarillo.

He sits with his wife, Hanna, on the back deck of their home, sipping pints of pale ale made by their 26-year-old son Matt, who sits nearby.

“Matt’s heart enlarged because it had to work so hard,” Mark continued, while admiring Peavine Ridge, facing his 1-acre slice of paradise on the Winchuck River.

It’s the green, serene location, about 3 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and a stone’s throw from rare, non-Californian redwoods, that spawned the name for Misty Mountain Brewing, Oregon’s southernmost brewery, just 2 miles from the California border.

  • Focus turns to U.S. data as China slowdown looms
    After a dizzying two weeks that saw a rapid plunge and rebound in equity prices, investors are looking forward to a week of economic data that may provide clarity on the likelihood of a near-term U.S. interest rate hike and help tamp down the market's recent wild swings. The economic figures will culminate in Friday?s jobs report that should reveal more about the strength of the U.S. economy. Car sales, construction spending, the Federal Reserve's "beige book" and jobs growth may show the economy is strong enough to withstand the first rate hike in nearly a decade from the Federal Reserve, despite worries about a hard landing for China?s economy.
  • Suzuki Motor says it will buy back VW stake as court settles feud
    Japan's Suzuki Motor Corp said on Sunday it will buy back the 19.9 percent stake it sold to Volkswagen AG after an international arbitration court settled a dispute between the automakers over their failed partnership. Suzuki filed for international arbitration in November 2011, after Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) refused to sell back the shares in Suzuki it acquired in January 2010 for 1.7 billion euros ($1.90 billion). The stake was worth some $3.8 billion at Friday's closing price.
  • Boeing uses its clout to control supplier consolidation
    Berkshire Hathaway Inc's $37 billion deal for aerospace supplier Precision Castparts Corp is encouraging investors to consolidate the fragmented aircraft components industry, even as Boeing Co uses its clout as the world's biggest plane maker to put a check on some deals. Potentially standing in their way, though, is Boeing, these people said. Boeing is the biggest customer of most aerospace suppliers, and is slowing some acquisitions by using its power to approve the transfer of its supply contracts from one owner to another.
