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.

  • Japan, U.S. report progress on trade talks, though Tokyo stands tough on rice
    Japan and the United States reported progress in top-level trade talks on Sunday that could pave the way for a broader trans-Pacific trade deal, although Tokyo cautioned that a bilateral accord was unlikely in time for a summit next week. Japan's Economy Minister Akira Amari and U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman both said they had made good progress in the first of two days of cabinet-level discussions. "We exchanged opinions about areas where Japan and the U.S. will cooperate in dealing with others" in the multilateral talks, Amari told reporters. Access to Japan's farm market and the U.S. car market remain obstacles to a bilateral deal between the two nations, vital to the success of a long-delayed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) pact.
  • China makes big cut in bank reserve requirement to fight slowdown
    China's central bank on Sunday cut the amount of cash that banks must hold as reserves, the second industry-wide cut in two months, adding more liquidity to the world's second-biggest economy to help spur bank lending and combat slowing growth. The People's Bank of China (PBOC) lowered the reserve requirement ratio (RRR) for all banks by 100 basis points to 18.5 percent, effective from April 20, the central bank said in a statement on its website www.pbc.gov.cn. "Though the growth in the first quarter met the official target of around 7 percent for 2015, the slowdown in several areas, including industrial output and retail sales, has caused concern," said a report published by the official Xinhua news service covering the announcement. The latest cut, the deepest single reduction since the depth of the global crisis in 2008, shows how the central bank is stepping up efforts to ward off a sharp slowdown in the economy.
  • For short-sellers in U.S. stocks, the agony just piles on
    In January 2014, veteran short-seller Bill Fleckenstein said he was readying a new fund to bet on falling stock prices. Despite lackluster U.S. economic data, a world grappling with slow growth, concern that Greece and Ukraine could default on their debts, the U.S. stock market has been more than resilient. It has been impossible," Seattle-based Fleckenstein told Reuters. "It all comes down to free money and that old saw - 'don't fight the Fed,'" said Jeff Matthews, who runs Ram Partners, a Naples, Florida-based hedge fund.
