Cash Mob Crew

People throughout Curry County, including this group in Gold Beach, descended on Ray’s Food Place stores at 5:30 p.m. Thursday as part of a Cash Mob. The idea was to have a large crowd of people show up and shop at the same time at stores in Brookings, Gold Beach and Port Orford to show their support for the financially-struggling C&K Market Inc., which has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, closed stores and laid off employees. Co-organizer Georgia Nowlin was inspired to do the Cash Mob as a way to support the Brookings-based business that has supported various community schools and non-profits for decades.

  • U.S. economy slows in fourth quarter, but growth outlook still favourable
    U.S. economic growth braked more sharply than initially thought in the fourth quarter amid a slow pace of stock accumulation by businesses and a wider trade deficit, but the underlying fundamentals remained solid. Gross domestic product expanded at a 2.2 percent annual pace, revised down from the 2.6 percent pace estimated last month, the Commerce Department said on Friday. With consumer spending accelerating at its quickest pace since the first quarter of 2006 and sturdy gains in other measures of domestic demand, the slowdown in growth is likely to be temporary. Growth in consumer spending, which accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, was revised down by one-tenth of a percentage point to a 4.2 percent pace in the fourth quarter, still the fastest since the first quarter of 2006.
