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.”

Comcast had argued the merger would bring faster service and better video services to more Americans. Charter Communications Inc lost out on a bid for Time Warner Cable last year, and Charter's controlling shareholder, Liberty Media Corp, had since indicated continuing interest. Time Warner Cable shares last traded at $152.52, up 2.5 percent on the day.
  • Euro zone warns Greece no cash till full reform deal
    Euro zone finance ministers warned Greece on Friday that its leftist government will get no more aid until it agrees a complete economic reform plan, as Athens lurches closer to bankruptcy. Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis faced a harsh morning in which euro zone ministers bemoaned talks they felt "were going nowhere" and one minister said that maybe it was time governments prepared for the plan B of a Greek default. Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the Dutch finance minister who chaired the meeting in the Latvian capital, slammed the door on Varoufakis' proposal for early cash after partial reforms.
