Family doubles-up on business affairs

It’s a family affair. Two new businesses – Outdoor Living Spaces and Pirate Energy – share not only the same building at 16160 Highway 101, but also some of the same relatives.

Pirate Energy is owned and operated by Harold Bailey, with the help of family members including his wife Lisa, and provides batteries and supplies for autos, trucks, boats, RVs, ATVs, motorcycles, golf carts, solar applications and more.

Outdoor Living Spaces, owned and run by Bailey’s sons, Ryan Mattes and Robert Bailey, offers aluminum awnings, patio and screen rooms, carports, and decks.

Bailey has been in the business of selling and maintaining batteries and power systems for 21 years at another location, Oceanview Drive and Highway 101. He gives as examples of prior installations, two power systems for Ted Freeman of Freeman Rock and the revamp of the generator at the Chetco River Inn.

“I can sell and install home generators, provide components and propane hose, plus fill propane tanks,” Bailey said.

“The propane generators I sell will automatically provide power within eight seconds when the power goes off and, when the power comes back on, it immediately switches to Coos-Curry Electric, cools off, and shuts down.”

He added, “I sell batteries for everything, and I also buy scrap batteries.”

Mattes and Robert Bailey, who just started their business last month, displayed a sample of the Alumawood used in the construction of the patios, carports, and decks that they install to order. Mattes pointed out that the long-lasting material is almost indestructible, and will enhance the use and appearance of decks and patios, with little maintenance, for a lifetime.

The Baileys, Mattes, and the rest of the family have issued an invitation to one and all, old friends and new, to stop in to fill propane tanks or just drop by to visit their showroom next to Blue Star Gas.

Both businesses are open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and may be contacted by calling 541-251-1323.

  • Asian shares edge off 7-year highs as Fed awaited
    Asian stocks pulled back from a seven-year peak scaled on Tuesday as sentiment gave way to caution ahead of the Federal Reserve's policy two-day meeting scheduled to start later in the session. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down about 0.3 percent after earlier touching its highest level since January 2008. Japan's Nikkei stock index advanced 0.3 percent as on hopes of better shareholder returns after index heavyweight Fanuc Corp doubled its dividend payout ratio. "Heading into another peak earnings week, investors have focused on companies' efforts to raise shareholder returns," said Takuya Takahashi, a strategist at Daiwa Securities in Tokyo.
  • China iPhone sales boost Apple; shares up modestly
    Apple's iPhone sales in China soared, increasing its revenue in the country 71 percent to $16.8 billion, although that was helped by gift-buying for Chinese New Year. Chief Executive Tim Cook said that China's expanding middle class is fueling iPhone sales there, which is the bulk of the company's sales.
  • Exclusive: Time Warner Cable open to merger talks with Charter - sources
    Friendly negotiations between the two companies would be in sharp contrast to their acrimonious exchanges in 2013 and early 2014 that ended with Time Warner Cable rejecting unsolicited approaches by Charter and instead finding a white knight in Comcast. While Charter has yet to make a formal offer, Time Warner Cable believes its smaller peer may be willing to make a bid that is more attractive compared with its takeover attempt two years ago, the people said. Time Warner Cable also views Charter's stock as a more valuable currency than it did last year given its stock performance since then, the people said.
