DR. RUSSELL JOINS STAFF AT FIFTH STREET CLINIC

Dr. David L. Russell will be joining the staff of the Brookings-Harbor Medical Center on Aug. 1.

Russell will be practicing family medicine with obstetrics at the center on 585 Fifth St.

He and his family, wife Shelly and 18-month-old son Drew, recently moved to the area from Provo, Utah where he recently completed his residency in family practice.

He is originally from Daphne, Ala. He attended college in Spring Hill, Ala. and then went to medical school at the University of Alabama, graduating in 1997.

He learned of the opening at the medical center through Oregon Health Sciences University. He said the university has a program to put doctors in rural areas.

Russell will not be accepting Oregon Health Plan patients. He said that he is an employee of the clinic and as far as he knows, the clinic is not accepting Oregon Health Plan patients right now.

He said he did sign the non-competition contract with the clinic.

Of his choice to move to Brookings, Dr. Russell said, We looked for a small town. We were torn between the coast and the mountains.

The place where Russell grew up, Daphne, Ala., is a coastal town, he said.

Russell is accepting appointments now. To make an appointment, call (541) 469-7401.

  • Asia stocks edge up on China rate cut, dollar index at 11-year high
    Asian stocks edged higher on Monday as China's weekend interest rate cut partially offset soft U.S. data, while the dollar hit an 11-year high against a basket of currencies. China on Saturday stepped up its easing tempo and cut its lending and deposit rates as the world's second largest economy tries to ward off deflation. Australian shares posted some of the biggest gains in Asia following the China rate cut, gaining 0.6 percent (.AXJO) after touching a seven-year peak as resource shares surged.
  • Near Fed majority backs June liftoff Yellen hasn't yet endorsed
    Janet Yellen's premium on consensus may lead to a Federal Reserve decision the chair hasn't yet endorsed, as a near majority aligns in favor of a possible June interest rate hike.     Seven of the Fed's current 17 members have now said they at least want the option of a June tightening on the table, or have pushed in general for an earlier increase amid an expectation that wages and inflation will turn higher.     The five members of the Fed's Washington-based board of governors, including Yellen, have spoken less definitively, though governors including Jerome Powell have said they expected strong job growth to continue. Not all of the seven who point to June vote this year on the Fed's ten-member policy setting committee, but all participate in policy discussions.
  • China February HSBC PMI at seven-month high
    Activity in China's factory sector edged up to a seven-month high in February but export orders shrank and deflationary pressures persisted, a private business survey showed, adding to the view that yet more interest rate cuts will be needed. Chinese policymakers are embarking on their biggest easing campaign since the depths of the global crisis as the world's second-largest economy is weighed down by a cooling property market, high debt levels and excess factory capacity. The People's Bank of China cut interest rates on Saturday, in the latest effort to support the economy as its momentum slows.
