'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."

  • SEC to Investigate BofA Over Customer-Protection Rules: WSJ
    Bank of America Corp. is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission over whether the lender broke rules designed to safeguard customer accounts, according to the Wall Street Journal. The bank’s Merrill Lynch unit used a variety of large, complex trades and loans over a three-year period to save on funding costs and free up billions of dollars in cash and securities for trading that the firm would otherwise have needed to keep off-limits, the newspaper reported Tuesday, citing people familiar with the inquiry without naming them. Bank of America stopped the trades in mid-2012, and now the SEC is investigating whether the strategy violated customer-protection rules and if the company misled regulators about its actions, the paper said. The strategies were in place when Bank of America bought Merrill Lynch in 2009 and the company “fully complied with the rules designed to safeguard client funds,” Bill Halldin, a spokesman for the Charlotte, North Carolina lender, said in an e-mailed statement.
