 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.

  • Wall Street Week Ahead: Spring fever brings hope for U.S. earnings
    Several behemoths, including Apple, the largest U.S. company by market value, as well as Microsoft, McDonald's (MCD.N) and AT&T (NYS:T), are due to report earnings. They'll be accompanied by highfliers like Netflix and Facebook, giving the first real cross-section of the state of corporate America as temperatures rise across the country and investors hope to put the cold weather behind them. Strategists will also be looking for clues on how badly China's slowdown hits U.S. corporate results. The first batch of earnings came out as equities were working their way through a selloff led by trading-crowd favorites like Netflix and the biotech stocks.
  • Rajaratnam's brother loses bid to dismiss insider trading charges
    Rengan Rajaratnam, the younger brother of imprisoned hedge fund manager Raj Rajaratnam, on Friday lost a bid to dismiss some of the insider trading charges leveled against him last year. U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald in Manhattan ruled that the indictment adequately alleged the essential elements of the crimes charged. A lawyer for Rajaratnam did not respond to a request for comment. A spokeswoman for Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara declined to comment.
  • Compensation battle rages four years after BP's U.S. oil spill
    Jules Melancon, the last remaining oyster fisherman on an island dotted with colorful houses on stilts, says he has not found a single oyster alive in his leases in the area since the leak and relies on an onshore oyster nursery to make a living. The British oil major has paid out billions of dollars in compensation under a settlement experts say is unprecedented in its breadth. Some claimants are satisfied, but others are irate that BP is now challenging aspects of the settlement. The oil company has spent over $26 billion on cleaning up, fines and compensation for the disaster, which killed 11 people on the rig and spilled millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico for 87 days after the blast on April 20, 2010.
