BUSINESS OFFERS DECORATING SERVICES

By Marjorie Woodfin

Pilot staff writer

Just in time for holiday dcor, Duane Pixler has opened his decorating service in Brookings.

Pixler, who has 30 years experience in floral display, decorating, and visual merchandising, is operating from his home to be able to offer his professional services at a reasonable rate.

His specialty is helping real estate personnel prepare a home for quicker sale. However, he enjoys helping individual clients and businesses add beautiful touches for holidays or other special occasions.

Those who visited U.S. Bank this past month had an opportunity to view some of Pixler's decorating talent. He provided the decorations for Elmo Williams' book signing celebration at the bank Oct. 25.

Pixler is skilled at finding just the right decorations for home, businesses, organizations, and special parties. No job is too large or too small. He said he is especially interested in helping those who find it difficult to personally manage the decorating chores.

He explained that his past experience in taking care of his grandmother and brightening her atmosphere has given him insight into how to help make a home beautiful and special for the holidays.

Pixler will provide a consultation without charge or obligation. Pixler said he can gauge the time it will require to provide the desired dcor and the materials needed.

"There's much a good designer can do to provide something special for nothing," Pixler said.

Pixler said that he and his mother, Sherry Drobny, who works at U.S. Bank, moved to Brookings for her health and they love the community. He looks forward to making many new friends as he works to help clients find beauty in their surroundings.

For a consultation, call (541) 787-9200.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
