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.

  • Asian shares skid as China data raises growth concerns
    Asian shares got off to a downbeat start on Monday, after weekend Chinese data raised concerns about growth in the world's second-largest economy. China's factory sector unexpectedly shrank for the first time in nearly 2-1/2 years last month and firms see more gloom ahead, according to a survey released on Sunday.
  • Obama targets foreign profits with tax proposal, Republicans skeptical
    President Barack Obama's fiscal 2016 budget will seek new taxes on trillions of dollars in profits accumulated overseas by U.S. companies, and a new approach to taxing foreign profits in the future, but Republicans were skeptical of the plan on Sunday. Reviving a long-running debate about corporate tax avoidance, Obama will target a loophole that lets companies pay no tax on earnings held abroad, the White House said. In his budget plan to be unveiled on Monday, Obama will call for a one-time, 14 percent tax on an estimated $2.1 trillion in profits piled up abroad over the years by multinationals such as General Electric (GE.N), Microsoft (MSFT.O), Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) and Apple Inc (AAPL.O). He will also seek to impose a 19 percent tax on U.S. companies' future foreign earnings, the White House said.
  • Oil prices fall more than a dollar after rally
    Oil prices fell in early trading on Monday as unions called a strike at U.S. oil and chemical plants on the weekend, cutting some of the gains made late last week when prices roared more than 8 percent on a sharp drop in U.S. drilling. Brent crude oil futures were trading at $51.98 a barrel at 7.20 p.m. ET , down $1.01, and U.S. WTI futures were trading at $47.22 a barrel, down $1.02 per barrel.
