'A CUP ABOVE' COFFEE SPOT NOW OPEN IN SMITH RIVER

By Christine Walters

Wescom News Service

Marci Wallace and her family have opened a new espresso drive-through stand in the parking lot of All Star Liquors at 12559 U.S. Highway 101 North. in Smith River. Called "A Cup Above," the coffee shop is open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week.

Wallace has worked at other coffee shops, but this is her first venture as the owner of one.

Her brother Matt assists in the operation and her retired parents, Mel and Mary, share ownership of the business as well as helping run things.

"We have a well-trained, super friendly staff," Marci Wallace said. "Another reason our espresso is so good is that we buy our beans from Long Bottom Roasting Co., which uses a special air-roasting process that makes a strong coffee with less bitterness."

  • Asia up on Wall St. rally and China hopes, euro sags on Greece
    Asian stocks rose across the board on Tuesday after a rally on Wall Street and steps by China to shore up its economy boosted risk appetite, while Greek debt worries again haunted the sagging euro. Spreadbetters expected European shares to pull back slightly after Monday's rise, calling for Britain's FTSE (.FTSE), Germany's DAX (.GDAXI) and France's CAC (.FCHI) to open a touch lower. Tracking overnight gains in U.S. stocks, MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.5 percent. Japan's Nikkei (.N225) bucked the trend and lost 0.2 percent.
  • Oil extends losses as deadline for Iran nuclear deal looms
    Oil futures extended losses on Tuesday, as Iran and six world powers ramped up the pace of negotiations to reach a preliminary deal that could ease sanctions and allow more Iranian crude onto world markets. With a deadline less than 24 hours away, United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China were trying to break an impasse in negotiations aimed at stopping Iran from having the capacity to develop a nuclear bomb, in exchange for an easing of international sanctions. "Iran has built up significant oil inventories and could immediately increase exports if sanctions are lifted," analysts at ANZ said in a note. Shipping sources say Iran is storing at least 30 million barrels of oil on its fleet of supertankers, as Western sanctions keep a lid on sales.
  • Exclusive: Cablevision to make $1 offer for New York Daily News
    The offer would come one month after New York media and real estate magnate Mortimer Zuckerman said he was considering selling the newspaper and had hired Lazard Ltd to assist with the process. Cablevision's $1 bid takes into account the New York Daily News' reported $30 million annual loss and $150 million investment in a printing press, and declining circulation that relies heavily on newsstand sales rather than on subscriptions, the source said. Cablevision declined to comment while a representative for the New York Daily News could not immediately be reached for a comment. Cable distributors such as Cablevision and its larger rivals have also been under pressure to stop consumers from dumping their cable subscriptions, or "cutting the cord", as subscribers shift to internet services such as Netflix and Hulu.
