More than 2,000 attend weekend home show

More than 2,000 people attended the 25th annual Home and Garden Show last weekend at Kalmiopsis Elementary School in Brookings.

Guests visited with 49 exhibitors — each had a booth that showed people what they offered. Businesses ranged from those offering home improvement, furniture, security, cleaning, pest control, financing and more.

“The majority of the exhibitors were engaging and knowledgeable about their products and services,” said Arlis Steele, Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce president and CEO.

Many of the exhibitors called the show a success based on estimates, leads, sales, and community interest, Steele said. 

“I am looking forward to making some  necessary revisions to the show in the future,” Steele said. “We have some wonderful ideas on how to grow the show and gain community interest and are excited for what’s to come.”

One change Steele mentioned that she would like to have changed was for the appetite.

“I do wish we had food.”

  • 'Yes' camp takes slim lead in Greek bailout referendum poll
    Supporters of Greece's bailout terms have taken a wafer-thin lead over the "No" vote backed by the leftist government, 48 hours before a referendum that may determine the country's future in the euro zone, a poll showed. It could also determine whether Greece becomes the first country to crash out of the 19-nation European single currency area, membership of which is meant to be irrevocable. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has urged Greeks to reject the "humiliating" terms offered last week by international creditors in a deal that is no longer on the table, and accused lenders of "blackmail" by withholding credit.
  • Aetna to buy Humana for $37 billion in largest insurance deal
    The combination will push Aetna close to Anthem Inc's (ANTM.N) No.2 insurer spot by membership, and would nearly triple Aetna's Medicare Advantage business. The deal will face antitrust scrutiny but if it goes through it would dwarf the previous largest insurance deal announced just this week, where Swiss property and casualty giant ACE Ltd (ACE.N) announced it was buying Chubb Corp (CB.N) for $28 billion.
  • European bonds and stocks on the defensive before tight Greek vote
    Supporters of Greece's bailout terms have taken a wafer-thin lead over the "No" vote backed by the leftist government, 48 hours before Sunday's referendum, an opinion poll showed. "Attention will be pinned on Greece and this is likely to see investors cautious as we head into the weekend ... Even if we get a Yes' vote, this means the country must go back to the negotiation table and try to knock something together again," IG market analyst Stan Shamu said.
