Ocean Park celebrates 12th anniversary

 Ocean Park Memory Care Community, on Parkview Drive in Brookings, celebrated its 12th anniversary with great fanfare in the month of August.  

The biggest highlight of the celebration was employee recognition. Several employees were honored. Compassion, motivation, dedication, attitude and loyalty were some of the main categories on which the employees were judged.

The Most Improved Care Giver award went to Leanna Grubbs. Autumn Niedorf, the assistant administrator, was recognized for her Administrative Leadership.

The Employee of the Year award created the most excitement. There were four finalists. Dana Maciel, R.N. and administrative team leader, handed out the awards. Fourth place went to Letitia Taylor. Besides her warm, happy and friendly personality, she was recognized for her pivotal role on the night shift. Third place winner, Angela Wilkins, was recognized for her leadership and exemplary performance on the morning shift. The runner up, Alexandria Silcox, was recognized for her versatility, hard work, dependability and her willingness to go beyond the call of duty.

Celeste Jerue was chosen as the Employee of the Year.  As the Administrative Team coordinator, Celeste is the “grease for Ocean Park’s wheels, keeping everything moving in the right direction.” She is also “the glue that holds everything together.”

Jerue and Silcox were awarded a one-week, all expense paid trip to Hawaii.

Ocean Park is a 55-bed residential care level II facility designed for the care of those afflicted with different forms of dementia. See www.oceanparkinc.com, or call 541-469-6817 for more information.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
