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.

  • Only a payrolls surprise could shake stalling market
    Unless next week's payrolls report is an outlier, investors should expect a continuation of the directionless market that has kept the S&P 500 trading in place for most of the year. Should July post strong job gains, it would point to an economy strong enough for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates for the first time in almost a decade.
  • Verizon's workers say no strike for now, union talks continue
    Verizon Communications Inc and the unions representing its wireline unit employees on the U.S. East Coast said work will go on and talks continue after their current contract expired. Since June, the unions have been in talks with Verizon over the company's plans to cut costs by controlling healthcare and pension-related benefits over a three-year period. Last week, the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers that represent over 37,000 wireline employees said they had voted to go on strike, if needed, after their contract expired on Aug. 1 at midnight.
  • Iran plans to buy 80-90 Boeing, Airbus planes a year, post sanctions
    Iran plans to buy as many as 90 planes per year from Boeing (BA.N) and Airbus (AIR.PA) to revamp its antiquated fleet once Western sanctions are lifted, its state news agency IRNA quoted a senior aviation official as saying on Sunday. "Iran will buy a total of 80-90 planes per year from the two aviation giants in the first phase of renovating its air fleet," said Mohammad Khodakarami, the caretaker director of Iran?s Civil Aviation Organization, according to IRNA. Last month's nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers has raised the prospect of banking and trade sanctions on Iran being lifted, perhaps around the end of this year, which would mean a chance to renew a fleet of commercial aircraft whose average age of 23 years is almost twice the international average.
