The constantly rising cost of living in Santa Cruz, Calif., spurred Scott and Lori Jewkes to move their business to a town where they could have a "fighting chance" of owning a place of their own.

They recently transplanted their business, Lemon Fresh Cleaning, to Brookings. They have already purchased a home.

Insured and bonded, the couple concentrates mainly on residential and some business clients.

In business together for 15 years, the two have a system when it comes to cleaning. Scott is in charge of the floors, often foregoing a mop and getting down on his hands and knees. Lori does the bathrooms and kitchens. They are able to clean at least two houses a day.

They each charge $30 an hour. The couple brings all necessary cleaning supplies but will use whatever cleaners the client requests.

While they plan on working hard, they would also like time to play, something that was missing in Santa Cruz.

Lori has started baking dog biscuits for the South Coast Humane Society, and Scott likes to fish and bicycle.

Lemon Fresh Cleaning can be reached at (541) 469-6467.

    Foreign companies are increasingly concerned they are being targeted by Chinese regulators, a U.S. The American Chamber of Commerce in China is the latest business lobby to air its grievances over a series of investigations scrutinizing at least 30 foreign firms, as China seeks to enforce a 2008 anti-monopoly law. There are growing perceptions that multinational firms are under "selective and subjective enforcement" using "legal and extra-legal approaches", the Chamber said in a report. A survey of 164 members showed 49 percent of respondents felt foreign companies were being singled out in recent pricing and anti-corruption campaigns, compared to 40 percent in a late 2013 survey of 365 members.

    Burger King may have taken a lot of flack in the past week for a deal that should curb its U.S. tax bill but in many ways it is consistent with the burger chain’s aggressive tax-reduction strategies in ...
