GROUP NAMES VANDERMEER 2007 'REALTOR OF THE YEAR'

The Curry County Board of Realtors named Cy Vandermeer "Realtor of the Year" for 2007.

He was recognized by his peers for his outstanding contributions not only to the Curry County Board of Realtors but to the community as well.

Vandermeer served as board president during the 2007 calendar year, and for the past three years he served as board representative on the Service Advisory Committee of the Regional Multiple Listing Service. Committee members from around the state meet monthly with executives from the Regional Multiple Listing Service to promote and achieve the most efficient and effective technical services possible to its membership.

As president of the board he actively promotes member support for the local food bank, Habitat for Humanity and the Oasis Shelter Home.

For many years Vandermeer has provided outstanding vocal entertainment for board members attending the annual new board member installation dinner and meeting. He is a frequent participant at many local music events throughout the Brookings-Harbor community.

  • Oil's drop chills Asian stocks, inflation data boosts dollar
    Asian shares pulled further away from a five-month high on Friday as a sharp pullback in crude oil prices dampened risk appetite, though Japanese stocks crawled to a fresh 15-year peak after the dollar surged against the yen overnight. The dollar's strength followed upbeat U.S. data, which tilted expectations back toward an early interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve.
  • Brent approaches $61, set to end seven-month losing streak
    Crude oil futures rebounded on Friday, with Brent heading for its biggest monthly gain since May 2009, as supply outages in North Sea and renewed fears of gas supply disruption in Europe supported prices. A reduction in rig counts and expectations for better oil demand have helped Brent prices rise by more than 14 percent so far this month from January's close of $52.99. Brent crude (LCOc1) rose 68 cents to $60.73 a barrel by 2058 ET. Elsewhere in Europe, gas supply talks between the European Union, Ukraine and Russia will be held in Brussels on Monday after President Vladimir Putin warned that Russia would halt gas supplies to Ukraine if it did not receive advance payment, raising the possibility of disrupted deliveries to Europe.
  • Lower gasoline prices dampen U.S. consumer inflation
    U.S. consumer prices fell over the past year for the first time since 2009 as gasoline prices continued to tumble, which could allow a cautious Federal Reserve more room to hold off on raising interest rates. Other data on Thursday showed a rebound in business investment spending plans and a steadily firming labor market, suggesting the move into deflation territory would be brief. In addition, gasoline prices have been rising in recent weeks. "We believe the Fed will wait until September before achieving liftoff on interest rates and, even then, the process of normalization will move at a glacial pace," said Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial in Chicago.
