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.

  • Europe stocks stumble, dollar lifted by U.S rate view
    European shares fell in thin trade on Monday while the dollar powered ahead after U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen indicated that the central bank was poised to raise interest rates this year. Investor concerns about Greece's debt problems and a poor regional and local election result by Spain's ruling People's Party also weighed on the euro and European shares. The pull-back in European stocks mirrored losses on Wall Street on Friday after Yellen suggested the Fed was ready to act if the economy kept improving as expected, though a raft of recent data has suggested it is growing only modestly in the second quarter.
  • Oil prices edge down as dollar strengthens
    Crude oil futures edged lower toward $65 a barrel as the dollar strengthened on Monday, with a public holiday in the United States and much of Europe keeping trading muted. Front-month Brent crude shed 17 cents to $65.20 a barrel by 1052 GMT. U.S. crude was down 35 cents at $59.37 a barrel.
  • Greece says wants to make debt payments but needs aid urgently
    Greece intends to make good on its debt obligations but needs aid urgently to be able to do so, the government said on Monday, after several senior officials insisted Athens had no money to pay a loan installment falling due next week. It must repay four loans totaling 1.6 billion euros to the International Monetary Fund next month, starting with a 300 million euro payment on June 5 that is seen as the next crunch point for state coffers. Athens has the money to make monthly wage and pension payments this week, government spokesman Gabriel Sakellaridis told a news conference.
