Melissa Clarke brings calm, flexibility, organization – and some fresh ideas – to her new business, Paragon Property Management.

A native of Idaho, Clarke and her family moved to Brookings a year and a half ago.

For about seven months, Clarke worked with former owner Marcia Alford, to be sure that property management was what she wanted to do.

With Oregon certification to be a property manager, in hand, Clarke took over the business in April.

As a property manager, she helps homeowners keep tabs when they have renters in their homes. Her packages for management include drive-by checks, maintenance, rent collecting and paying utilities.

In addition, for owners who don't want to rent out their property, services include "storm checks" and reports on the condition of the homes.

She has a "great housekeeping staff and an excellent handyman," who, she said she would "trust with my life."

A new feature has been added to her property management, "a light, refreshing cleaning of the inside of the homes in preparation of an owner's return," she explained.

Clarke brings to the job the experience of taking care of rentals for her parents.

"I'm a people person," she said. "Property management is something I like doing; it fits my life and my family's needs."

For information, phone Clarke at (541) 412-7995. Paragon Property Management is located in Brookings at 1240 Chetco Ave., Suite C.

    The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court, where dozens of cases against GM over the switch recall have been consolidated.

The company has set up a program, run by lawyer Kenneth Feinberg, to compensate victims of crashes involving about 2.6 million of those cars, mostly Cobalts, Ions and other small cars that it linked to 54 crashes and 13 deaths. Tuesday’s lawsuit covers claims that would not be eligible for the program, according to Robert Hilliard, the lawyer who filed the suit.
  • U.S. seen maintaining solid pace of jobs growth in July
    U.S employment growth likely retained enough momentum in July to help buoy the economy for the rest of the year. The recovery is on solid ground and we are expecting the data to show that in the month of July," said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ in New York. "Due to the strength in the labor market, we maintain that the weakness in economic growth in the first quarter is a one-off event and the trend in the labor market better represents the current direction of the economy," said John Silvia, chief economist at Wells Fargo in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Labor Department will release its monthly employment report, which is closely watched by financial markets around the globe, at 8:30 a.m. EDT (1230 GMT) on Friday.
