NEW CONSTRUCTION COMPANY OPENING IN BROOKINGS

By Leah Weissman

Pilot staff writer

Brookings-Harbor residents looking to remodel – or just just touch up – their homes have a new construction company to turn to.

Lance Kessler, son of Kurt Kessler of Kurt Kessler Kustom Builder in Brookings, recently started his own self-employed construction company called Lance Kessler Construction Incorporated.

"I do all the construction – mainly building new homes, commercial buildings, and doing remodel and repairs," Kessler said. "I specialize in custom finish work, cabinets, siding and framing."

Kessler said he's been involved in the construction field since he was 13-years-old.

"I love doing this," he said. "I especially like the design and finish work, which entails doing handrails, installing trims throughout the whole house and the such."

After starting his home-based company six months ago in Astoria, Kessler said he and his wife decided to move back to his hometown of Brookings two days ago to be closer to family.

"I learned a lot of new techniques that haven't maybe been used in Brookings, such as building country Victorian homes," Kessler said. "I can provide a lot of talents that haven't been seen here, and I know special weather proofing techniques – which can come in handy now."

Interested Curry County residents can call Kessler between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. any day of the week at (541) 469-9616.

Kessler said he is happy to provide free quotes.

  • SEC's stock market reform club locks out retail brokers
    The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is convening a group of financial industry veterans for the first time next month to consider stock market reforms, but one group will be conspicuously absent: retail brokerages. The SEC's 17-member Market Structure Advisory Committee includes representatives of fund companies, an exchange, off-exchange trading venues, dealers, and academia, among others. The group, which meets four times a year, will review old rules, and advise the SEC on a range of new regulations designed to make sure the market is as stable and fair as possible. Still, given that the SEC has said its main priority is to protect retail investors, the omission of retail brokers raises questions, because without their point of view the panel may recommend changes that favor institutional investors, analysts said.
  • More central banks meet, but ability to pilot economies in doubt
    Most central banks have been easing policy since the start of the year and are set to do more, but it still isn't clear whether that new activism, which has pushed stock markets to record highs, will help the global economy much. Several meet this week to set policy, including the U.S. Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan and Sweden's Riksbank, which all have turned to government bond purchases as stimulus after running out of interest rates to cut. The Fed shut its quantitative easing (QE) program just over six months ago. Few expect the Fed to use its two-day meeting as a launching pad for what will eventually be the first interest rate hike in nearly a decade.
  • If Greece falls, no one wants their prints on the murder weapon
    The game of chicken between Greece and its international creditors is turning into a vicious blame game as Athens lurches closer to bankruptcy with no cash-for-reform agreement in sight. Europe's political leaders and central bankers and Greek politicians agree on only one thing: if Greece goes down, they don't want their fingerprints on the murder weapon. If Athens runs out of cash and defaults in the coming weeks, as seems increasingly possible, no one wants to be accused of having pushed it over the edge or failed to try to save it. Greece's leftist government has already identified its culprit of choice - Germany, Europe's main paymaster, accused of having inflicted toxic austerity policies on Greeks, causing a "humanitarian crisis".
