Port unveils new promotional websites Print E-mail
January 14, 2012 05:22 pm

 Port of Brookings Harbor Manager Ted Fitzgerald has unveiled the port’s two new websites.

The revamped website www.port-brookings-harbor.com now includes “a comprehensive display of the entire port and all of its operations,” he said in a news release.

 

 That includes streaming video web cams such as one that shows the current status of the channel and bar as well as warnings from the U.S. Coast Guard Chetco River Station. Current weather forecasts, ocean conditions, river lows and tidal information are delivered in real time, Fitzgerald said.

The second site, www.beachfrontrvpark.com, shows scenes of the RV park and includes an online reservation form. Reservations also can be made by calling the port office at 541-469-2218.

  • Asian shares slump as Ukraine tensions flare
    Asian shares slumped on Friday, after flaring Ukraine tensions spoiled investor risk appetite and bolstered the safe-haven yen. Ukraine's president said Russian troops had entered his country in support of pro-Moscow rebels who captured a key coastal town, escalating a five-month-old separatist conflict. The United States on Thursday openly accused Russia of sending combat forces into Ukraine and threatened to tighten economic sanctions, but Washington stopped short of calling Moscow's latest step an invasion. "Risky assets were weaker on rising concerns about Russia-Ukraine, as well as weak data out of the euro area," strategists at Barclays wrote in a note to clients.
  • U.S. banking group says unaware of any 'significant' cyber attack
    The group, known as the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center, or FS-ISAC, includes all major U.S. "There are no credible threats posed to the financial services sector at this time," the group said in an email to its members. FS-ISAC told members in the email that it decided not to raise its barometer of threats facing banks during a regularly scheduled conference call on Thursday.
  • Japan household spending slumps, output flat as tax pain persists
    Japanese household spending fell much more than expected and factory output remained weak in July after plunging in June, government data showed, suggesting that soft exports and a sales tax hike in April may drag on the economy longer than expected. While the Bank of Japan is in no mood to expand monetary stimulus any time soon, the data undermines the BOJ's rosy economic forecasts and will keep it under pressure to act if the economy fails to gather momentum, analysts say. The soft readings may also fuel speculation that the government could delay a second sales tax increase scheduled for next year, or try to compile another fiscal stimulus package, which would further worsen Japan's debt burden. "Production and consumption are both stagnating, and the economy is clearly undershooting projections of the government and the BOJ," said Taro Saito, senior economist at NLI Research Institute.
