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.

  • Greece's Tsipras digs in against bailout
    ATHENS/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A defiant Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras urged Greeks on Wednesday to reject an international bailout deal, wrecking any prospect of repairing broken relations with European Union partners before a referendum on Sunday that may decide Greece's future in Europe. Less than 24 hours after he wrote a conciliatory letter to creditors asking for a new bailout that would accept many of their terms, Tsipras abruptly switched back into combative mode in a television address. A day after Greece became the first developed economy to default on debt to the International Monetary Fund, long lines at cash machines provided a stark symbol of the pressure on Tsipras, who came to power in January vowing to end austerity and protect the poor.
  • U.S. hiring seen solid in June, keeping September rate hike in play
    U.S. job growth likely cooled a bit in June after reaching a five-month high, but still-healthy hiring would suggest the labor market is strong enough to support a September interest rate increase by the Federal Reserve.
  • Dollar firms before payrolls, Greece unease simmers
    The dollar was near a three-week high on Thursday and world stock markets had a delicate feel, as the implication of U.S. jobs data later for a possible Fed rate hike added to Europe's uncertainty over Greece. Europe's main bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) and Milan (.FTMIB) opened largely flat having rallied on Wednesday but the mood remained skittish after hopes of a last minute aid deal between Athens and the euro zone evaporated. A defiant Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras urged Greeks on Wednesday to reject an international bailout deal, wrecking any prospect of repairing broken relations with European Union partners before a referendum on Sunday that may decide Greece's future in Europe.
