BARON APPOINTED CREDIT UNION CHIEF

Stanley L. Baron, a native of the East Coast, has taken the reins of Chetco Federal Credit Union.

Baron replaces Bob Dugan, former president and chief executive officer, who resigned earlier this year.

The new credit union chief began working June 12 after moving from New Jersey where he was president of a credit union.

After earning his bachelors degree in business from Montclair State University in New Jersey, Baron went into the financial institution business.

One of his goals was to move to the West Coast after he graduated from college, Baron said. But he encountered obstacles that kept in on the East Coast.

He got married and he and his wife, Tina, spent the next 30 years working in financial institutions and raising three children, who are now 27, 25 and 21, Baron said. The past 20 years has been serving as head of credit unions.

Now that the children are on their own, the couple decided to fulfill their dream of a westward move.

My wife and I decided to leave the rat race because the rats were winning, Baron said.

My wife and I had a short list of areas we wanted to relocate to, Baron said. These places they had visited on vacations. After learning about the opening at Chetco Federal Credit Union, he researched the financial institution and I liked everything about CFCU.

Not only is Baron happy to be working at the credit union, he finds the area a place to exercise his hobbies, which include golf, river fishing and visiting museums.

At the credit union, Baron hopes to promote his philosophy.

A credit union should never lose sight of the purpose for which they were created, Baron said, to serve the members financial needs.

I believe CFCU has the potential to be the primary financial institution for everyone in Curry and Del Norte counties, Baron said.

  • Asian shares drop, dollar hits 13-year high versus yen
    Asian shares shed gains on Thursday as the Chinese, Hong Kong and Australian markets slipped, while the dollar scaled a 13-year peak against the yen as it rallied on expectations the U.S. Federal Reserve will raise rates this year. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index (.HSI) shed 1.4 percent. Japan's Nikkei (.N225) bucked the downtrend, as the weaker yen helped keep the index on track for its 10th consecutive rise, which would give it the longest winning streak since February 1988.
  • Japan April retail sales rebound, ease pressure on BOJ
    Japan's retail sales rebounded modestly in the year to April after three straight months of falls, bolstering the central bank's case that consumer spending is reviving to underpin a steady economic recovery. The data adds to signs of improvement in consumer confidence and eases pressure on the Bank of Japan to expand its massive stimulus program in the near term, analysts say. Retail sales in April rose 5.0 percent from a year earlier, trade ministry data showed on Thursday, slightly below a median market forecast for a 5.4 percent increase.
  • EU officials dismiss Greek statement on aid agreement being drafted
    Greece's government on Wednesday said it is starting to draft an agreement with creditors that would pave the way for aid, but European officials quickly dismissed that as wishful thinking. Greece and its European and International Monetary Fund lenders have been locked in tortuous negotiations on a reforms agreement for four months without a breakthrough in sight. A new round of talks begin on Wednesday in Brussels, and a Greek government official said the two sides would start drafting a technical-level agreement there, along the lines of Athens' longtime demands for no wage or pension cuts and a lower target for a primary budget surplus.
