COLLEGE HIRES PROGRAM ASSISTANT

The new program assistant at the Brookings campus of Southwestern Oregon Community College is Aleta Mankamyer.

Mankamyer replaced Linda Brown on June 1. Brown took a job with the Port of Brookings Harbor.

The program assistant puts out the quarterly schedule for the campus. Mankamyer works with the instructors, the college and the high school to schedule who goes where when.

She said the hardest part is figuring out where to put everyone. She said she is already working on the fall schedule.

Mankamyer also writes press releases and, like everyone else at the campus office, answers phones.

She said summer classes began this week, including college level transfer classes. The summer quarter lasts eight weeks.

She said on-line classes are popular because students can choose their own hours to learn.

A lot of people like it because you can work at your own pace, she said.

Mankamyer said most students at the campus work and attend college part time.

Our challenge is to meet their needs, she said.

Special interest classes will include repairing and upgrading computers, and web page upgrades.

A rehearsal and performance class for theater arts will be offered for credit, or just for fun.

The college also holds one-day special interest classes like weaving.

Mankamyer said she is working to put a certified nursing assistant class together for the summer.

Thats the hard part, she said, And thats what I do.

Mankamyer joined the college staff after five years at The Pilot, where she worked her way from a darkroom assistant to digital imaging technician.

You need a change every once in a while, she said of her new job.

Im enjoying it, she said, It has new challenges. Its different.

  • As G20 chases growth goal, members differ on how to get there
    Financial leaders of the Group of 20 top economies remain committed to chasing higher global growth, but were divided on how to achieve it as Germany pushed back at calls from the United States and others for more immediate stimulus. Opening a meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bankers, Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey outlined on Saturday an ambitious agenda of boosting world growth, fireproofing the global banking system and closing tax loopholes for giant multinationals. "We have the opportunity to change the destiny of the global economy," said Hockey, who back in February launched a campaign to add 2 percentage points to world growth by 2018 as part of Australia's presidency of the G20. Just this week, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) slashed its growth forecasts for most major economies.
  • Dollar's rally bad news for oil, multinationals
    We are now seeing a new uptrend develop,” said Adam Sarhan, founder and CEO of Sarhan Capital in New York. If you’re a large tech company and you do a lot of business overseas, that’s not going to help you,” said Larry Glazer, managing partner at Mayflower Advisors in Boston. Lower oil prices favor the consumer, who can pocket the savings or spend the cash in stores.
  • Alibaba surges 38 percent on massive demand in market debut
    Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's (BABA.N) shares soared 38 percent in their first day of trading on Friday as investors jumped at the chance for a piece of what is likely to rank as the largest IPO in history, in a massive bet on China's burgeoning middle class. It was an auspicious debut for the Chinese e-commerce company, which was founded by Jack Ma in his apartment in 1999 and now accounts for 80 percent of online sales in China. About 100 people gathered outside the New York Stock Exchange at Wall and Broad Streets, many of them Chinese tourists with cameras, and they cheered and snapped photos when Ma exited the building with the kung fu star Jet Li. Some 271 million shares changed hands, more than double the turnover on Twitter Inc's (TWTR.N) first day last year, although still short of volume for the General Motors Co (GM.N) and Facebook Inc (FB.O) IPOs.
