More than a dozen Brookings-Harbor High School students are getting their first lessons in working on a production line.

The BHHS Future Business Leaders of America club members are packaging and selling note cards as part of their business project.

"We're learning how to be an entrepreneur," said freshman Jack Chen, FBLA club president.

Club members, who attend Linda Brown's business class, packaged and decorated the cards in packs of eight as part of a student production line

Students teased each other and laughed as they worked, from repackaging the cards to tying ribbons, the finishing touch, around each set of eight.

The cards were donated by Chetco Federal Credit Union and feature the Coquille River Lighthouse.

Profits from sales of the cards will pay for the FBLA trip to the FBLA regional conference in Medford..

Susan Lunsford, the club's advisor from CFCU, helps Brown oversee the project.

"They're an energetic bunch of kids," said Brown.

The project has brought students through all steps of the business process, teaching students to create a business plan and figure cost and profits.

The club also runs a recycling business at the school. The group collects soda cans and bottles for recycling.

The projects prepare the students for upcoming FBLA competitions as well as funding the Medford trip.

Future Business Leaders of America was founded in 1937 and currently has a quarter million students preparing for careers in business and business-related fields

To purchase note cards contact Brown at (541) 469-2108.

  • Isolated in debt talks, Greek finance rebel gets the cold shoulder
    As the buses carrying European finance ministers left for a gala dinner in the Latvian capital on Friday night, one of the party hung back at the hotel and then wandered off alone into the dusk. Greece's Yanis Varoufakis had other dinner plans, he said, after a bruising first day of meetings in Riga that underlined his isolation as he tries to avert national bankruptcy. While other ministers were feted by their entourages with food and warm clothing during the meeting in Riga, Varoufakis was seen alone at almost every turn, eschewing aides or any security detail. "He is completely isolated," a senior euro zone official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
  • Comcast drops Time Warner Cable bid after antitrust pressure
    The collapse of the deal opens the door for other possible offers for Time Warner Cable, but also casts heightened regulatory risk on merger activity in the U.S. cable industry, which has been rapidly consolidating in the face of competition from satellite TV and Web-based services. Comcast had argued the merger would bring faster service and better video services to more Americans. Charter Communications Inc lost out on a bid for Time Warner Cable last year, and Charter's controlling shareholder, Liberty Media Corp, had since indicated continuing interest. Time Warner Cable shares last traded at $152.52, up 2.5 percent on the day.
  • UBS chairman says Greek default increasingly seen by IMF as controllable
    UBS's (UBSG.VX) chairman said a default by Greece is seen by the International Monetary Fund as "systemically controllable" and he believed it would have a negligible impact on the Swiss bank itself, according to a newspaper interview published on Saturday. Euro zone finance ministers told Greece on Friday that its leftist government would get no more aid until it agreed a complete economic reform plan. In an interview with Neue Zuercher Zeitung, the chairman of Zurich-based UBS, Axel Weber, addressed the alternative if euro zone and Greek officials fail to reach an agreement. "I've just come from a meeting of the International Monetary Fund.
