CREDIT UNION DONATES TO CITY POOL

By Ellen Babin

Pilot staff writer

A huge success. Phenomenal. Fantastic job. Woof! Woof!

These are just a few of the terms used to describe the success of the "Stuff the Bus" campaign sponsored by KURY radio and Chetco Federal Credit Union (CFCU), with Dollar Dog's support.

The second annual campaign to gather school supplies for children attending Brookings schools this year began Aug. 11.

Donated money collected – $2,425.79 – is earmarked to go in a special fund, used for future school supplies.

In addition, The Dollar Dog Summer Splash brought Brookings City Pool $1,000 for items needed for swimming lessons.

Donations of school supplies, including 120 backpacks, filled seven cafeteria-sized tables, according to Gaylin Beckley, manager of the Brookings branch of CFCU.

The supplies were divided between schools in the Brookings Harbor School District. They will be given to students that may otherwise go without items needed for school.

  • European bonds and stocks on the defensive before tight Greek vote
    Yields on top-rated German 10-year Bunds, the benchmark for European borrowing costs, fell as some investors chose to preserve their capital in low-yielding but relatively safe assets. The moves were marginal, though, as investors did not want to position too heavily on either side. "The European market is frozen ahead of the Greek referendum," said Markus Allenspach, head fixed income research at Julius Baer.
  • Greeks deeply divided heading into crucial vote
    Tens of thousands of Greeks took to the streets on Friday in rival rallies that laid bare the deep divide heading into a referendum that may decide the country?s future in Europe?s single currency. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, elected in January on a promise to end years of austerity, urged people packing Syntagma square in central Athens to spurn the tough terms of an aid deal offered by international creditors to keep the country afloat. Tsipras says they are bluffing, fearing the fallout for Europe and the global economy.
  • Aetna to buy Humana for $37 billion in largest insurance deal
    The combination will push Aetna close to Anthem Inc's (ANTM.N) No.2 insurer spot by membership, and would nearly triple Aetna's Medicare Advantage business. The deal will face antitrust scrutiny but if it goes through it would dwarf the previous largest insurance deal announced just this week, where Swiss property and casualty giant ACE Ltd (ACE.N) announced it was buying Chubb Corp (CB.N) for $28 billion.
