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.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
