With fanfare and red-carpet treatment, the area's top producing realtors for 2007 were honored in a special event Thursday night.

Topping the list of 31 multi-million dollar agents were Marianne Padilla and Georgia Poole-Alexander, of Re/Max Coast and Country in Harbor.

It was the third year that Chetco Federal Credit Union has organized the event for real estate agents in Brookings-Harbor and Gold Beach. The Curry Coastal Pilot and Daryn Farmer/State Farm Insurance led the list of co-sponsors.

"Our goal is to not only recognize the achievements of these top realtors, but to show our appreciation for all the work and dedication they give to their profession and our community," said Bret Curtis, Real Estate Business Development officer for Chetco Federal Credit Union.

The regular tables at Bella Italia Ristorante were swept aside to make room for the evening reception, as well as the red carpet that Curtis rolled out before announcing the honorees. Amid high-fives and hugs, each received a plaque recognizing their acheivement for the year.

The other multi-million dollar agents for 2007 were Shirley Beaman-Hogben, Tammy Beckley, Tiny Caudell, Bruce Chambers, Robert Concienne, Darcy Costa, Yvonne Dunn, Suzie Etchart, Michelle Evans, Marie Gray, Angela Haralson, Maxine Keiley, Carole Lute-Erb, Ann MacLean and Jan Loren, BJ Martin, Amy Myrah, Karl Nettgen, Jan Norman, Sarah Pettinger, Jackie Pratt, Pam Savage, Charles Simpson, Mary Stansell, Ken Thompson, Cy Vandermeer, John Volz, Becky Watwood, Ruth Wilson.

Attending the event were officers of the Curry County Board of Realtors, members of the Chetco Federal Credit Union board of directors, owners and employees of the sponsoring companies, those realtors being recognized and their guests.

Similar events are set for Crescent City, Calif., and Port Orford/Bandon over the next week.

Other sponsors for the event were Kevin Moerke of Edward Jones, the Law Offices of Alexandria Chris Streich, Jeff Legg Appraisal Services, Zia Dream Homes, Kurt Kessler Kustom Builder, Harbor View Windows Heating and Air, David Twining of South Coast Home Inspections, Greg Rosental Professional Inspection Services, Spinner's Restaurant and Riverview Restaurant.

  • Apple iPhones allow extraction of deep personal data, researcher finds
    Personal data including text messages, contact lists and photos can be extracted from iPhones through previously unpublicized techniques by Apple Inc employees, the company acknowledged this week. The same techniques to circumvent backup encryption could be used by law enforcement or others with access to the "trusted" computers to which the devices have been connected, according to the security expert who prompted Apple's admission. In a conference presentation this week, researcher Jonathan Zdziarski showed how the services take a surprising amount of data for what Apple now says are diagnostic services meant to help engineers. As word spread about Zdziarski’s initial presentation at the Hackers on Planet Earth conference, some cited it as evidence of Apple collaboration with the National Security Agency.
  • Wall St. Week Ahead: Even modest GDP bounce may support market
    Even if data next week shows a mediocre rebound in U.S. economic growth, that might be enough to keep the stock market aloft at record highs and the Federal Reserve steadfast in its winding down of stimulus through bond purchases. Growth had shrunk 2.9 percent in the first quarter due to a harsh winter and spending cuts tied to the federal Affordable Care Act. Indeed, Friday's disappointing report on durable goods orders in June spurred JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs to shave their second-quarter outlook by 0.1 percentage point to 2.6 percent and 3.0 percent growth, respectively.
  • Facebook says SEC's IPO probe ends, extending WhatsApp closing date
    In its quarterly report filed on Thursday, Facebook said the regulator in May "notified us that it had terminated its inquiry and that no enforcement action had been recommended by the SEC." Facebook shares began trading on May 18, 2012, but soon fell below their $38 per share offering price and had lost more than half their value by the middle of August, angering investors. Investors also complained they were not told just prior to the IPO that analysts at Facebook's investment banks were cutting their forecasts after learning of the company's internal projections for advertising revenue. The end of the SEC probe does not affect shareholder litigation against Facebook, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and many banks over the Menlo Park, California-based company's IPO.
