'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."

  • EU in last-ditch bid to Greece, urges 'yes' vote to bailout
    The head of the European Commission made a last-minute offer to try to persuade Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to accept a bailout deal he has rejected before a referendum on Sunday which EU partners say will be a choice of whether to stay in the euro. EU and Greek government sources said Jean-Claude Juncker had offered to convene an emergency meeting of euro zone finance ministers on Tuesday to approve an aid payment to prevent Athens defaulting, if Tsipras sent a written acceptance of the terms. The last-ditch bid from Brussels came after tens of thousands of Greeks, mobilised by Tsipras' Syriza party, demonstrated in Athens against further austerity.
  • Few signs of market panic as Greece nears default
    Eurozone stocks, low-rated bonds and the euro weakened on Tuesday as Greece looked set to default on a repayment due to the International Monetary Fund and to plunge deeper into financial crisis. There was little evidence of panic, however, with investors pointing to Europe's improved ability to fight financial contagion since the height of the euro debt crisis in 2011. Despite a sense of heading into uncharted territory as the risk of a Greek exit from the euro zone rise, the sell-off was more muted than on Monday as investors pointed to possible intervention from the European Central Bank to fight prolonged financial turmoil as well as hopes that a deal might be found.
  • Microsoft hands display ads to AOL, maps to Uber
    Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) said on Monday it will hand over its display advertising business to AOL Inc and sell some map-generating technology to ride-hailing app company Uber, as it slims down its money-losing online operations. The moves mean Microsoft will focus on its growing search advertising business based on its Bing search engine, and displaying maps on its Windows devices rather than generating the maps themselves. Microsoft, which employs hundreds of people in its display ad business around the world, said those employees would be offered the chance to transfer to AOL and that it was not making any layoffs.
