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.

  • Dollar revs up for jobs data, euro bonds rally on ECB
    The dollar hit a new 11-year high against major currencies on Friday as investors bet the monthly U.S. jobs report would add to the chance of rate hikes, even as the European Central Bank embarks on a 1 trillion euro campaign of bond-buying. The same balance of risks saw the gap between German and U.S. bond yields stretched to its widest in more than a quarter of a century as government bond yields across the 19-country euro zone took another step lower.
  • Oil climbs to $61 on Mideast supply concerns
    Brent crude oil rose to around $61 a barrel on Friday as fighting in Libya and Iraq stoked output worries, while traders kept a close eye on Iran nuclear talks that could eventually bring more supply to world markets. Fighting has escalated in northeast Iraq where Islamic State militants have set fire to oilfields to deter Shi'ite militiamen and Iraqi soldiers from advancing. In Libya, worsening security conditions have led to the closure of 11 oilfields. "The Libyan and Iraqi oilfield skirmishes are worrying," said Tamas Varga, oil analyst at London brokerage PVM Oil Associates.
  • Fed should not be too patient on rate hikes, Williams says
    Federal Reserve policymakers should not wait too long to raise interest rates, a top U.S. central banker said on Thursday, because doing so could mean "drastically" overshooting on inflation and forcing the Fed to hike rates dramatically. "I think that by mid-year it will be the time to have a serious discussion about starting to raise rates," San Francisco Fed chief John Williams said.
