Business Briefcase Nov. 20, 2013

When you’re out shopping locally, be sure to take note of the updates at the Sears Hometown Store in the Brookings-Harbor Shopping Center. In addition to $10,000 in remodeling work, owner Doris Fronckowiak says there are new product lines on display, including “an explosion” of tools.

Optimum Property Management, run by Alice Lindley, is the newest affiliate member of the Curry County Board of Realtors.

Carol Raper, the acting CEO of Curry Community Health, has been appointed the permanent director. CCH is the non-profit organization formed to “spin off” the county health department from county government.

Many thanks to Blue Pacific Realty for doubling the firm’s contribution to the financially strapped Nature’s Coastal Holiday display. (You can help string lights Saturday at Azalea Park.)

Watch for this potential change: Regulators are reviewing the potential purchase of Sterling Savings by Umpqua Bank.  That would place an Umpqua Bank store in every community along the Southern Oregon Coast, says Harbor manager Bonnie Northrup.

After seven years of traveling back and forth between “home” in Brookings and his real estate companies in Southern California, Ron Reel has decided to stop commuting. You can now find him at Century 21 Agate Realty in Brookings and Del Norte Realty in Crescent City, where he plans to be an “oceanfront specialist.”

Listen for this lingo in holiday shopping: Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday is the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving.

-$-$-$-

The Chamber of Commerce community profiles and member directories in both Brookings-Harbor and Crescent City are now in production. Contact either the Pilot or the Del Norte Triplicate to reserve your space.

-$-$-$-

Congratulations to the Rotary Club of Crescent City, celebrating 60 years of community service with a special party last weekend.

-$-$-$-

Check your lobby or waiting room: If you need copies of the Pilot’s Brookings-Harbor Has It All!, Wild Rivers Coast Vacation Guide, Ageless or Community Map, just give us a call at 541-469-3123.

  • Charter Communications nears $55 billion deal for Time Warner Cable
    A deal would create a major rival to Comcast Corp, the biggest operator in the U.S. cable and broadband market, and marks a triumph for Charter, which was rejected by Time Warner Cable just last year. The cash-and-stock deal values Time Warner Cable at $195 per share, according to sources, and comes just one month after Comcast dropped its $45.2 billion merger agreement with Time Warner Cable, clinched in February 2014, over antitrust concerns. A merger of Charter and Time Warner Cable, with other related deals, would eliminate one of the country's top Internet providers and control more than 20 percent of the broadband market, according to data from MoffettNathanson.
  • Asian shares turn higher as China rallies, dollar up
