ROLLIN IN DOUGH

GOLD BEACH – For three years, Jim "Jimmy" Dickerson kept asking the question about purchasing Rollin' In Dough Bakery & Bistro.

Finally, Chef Patti Joyce relented and handed him keys to the business and Dickerson immediately went to work to revamp the restaurant's interior with the colors, charm and character of a French countryside.

"I contemplated retirement, but my customers continue to inspire me," Joyce said about remaining the chef at the eatery. "Cooking is my greatest pleasure. It comes from the heart. So, after being in operation for seven years, I felt it was time to breathe new life into the business, and I trusted Jimmy."

Dickerson recruited his friend Kelli Ryan to help him.

He graduated from of the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. She is an accomplished painter and known for her restorative work at international museums and The Vatican. Together, they set out to create a banquet for the eyes – a compliment to Joyce's feast for the palate.

No detail was overlooked. Counters, shelves and the pastry display case all received a quaint Provence-inspired makeover. Chair pads were recovered with toile (French: cloth) – a fabric of white or beige background adorned with repeating pictures, usually a scene. The bathroom dcor became its own version of Claude Monet's "The Water Lily Pond".

Across the walls, several inspiring French quotations appeared. There are Italian ones too to reflect Joyce's family heritage. Lastly, Chef Patti's collection of gifts – received from grateful patrons – was carefully arranged throughout.

In addition to the restaurant's new look, Joyce updated her menu to reflect customer input and changing habits toward lighter eating. She continues to utilize organic and Oregon products whenever possible.

"Trends change. I strive to respond, maintain the quality and keep an integrity of flavors," Joyce said.

Rollin' In Dough Bakery and Bistro is located at 94257 North Bank Road in Gold Beach and is and open for lunch, Tuesday through Saturdays, from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Reservations are recommended by calling (541) 247-4438. For menu information visit http://www. Rollin-In-Dough.com.

  • Look to energy names for global demand clues
    Profit growth expectations for S&P 500 energy companies have fallen more than any other sector - from a forecast of 13.8 percent on July 1 to the current 1.8 percent, Thomson Reuters data showed. With various names due to report next week, including Exxon Mobil (XOM.N), Chevron (CVX.N), ConocoPhillips (COP.N) and National Oilwell Varco (NOV.N), there are hopes that executives will suggest that the fall in oil and share prices has overstated the outlook for these names. The energy sector over the last 20 weeks has spiraled from being the market leader to now ranking as its most distant laggard, according to a Relative Rotation Graph study, which analyzes the relative performance of the constituents of an index. The S&P energy sector up about 6 percent from Oct. 15, while the S&P 500 is up 5.5 percent from its Oct. 15 low and the benchmark index on Friday posted its best weekly gain since early January 2013.

  • Exclusive: Ford to overhaul Lincoln brand, this time with big bucks
    Ford Motor Co's (F.N) new chief executive, Mark Fields, is giving the automaker's long-moribund Lincoln brand what his predecessor Alan Mulally never could: a little love and a lot of cash. Lincoln, a storied Detroit brand which Ford has owned since 1922, has been in a swoon for the past two decades, leaving dealers and customers wondering if Ford management had left the brand for dead. Now, with the renewed backing of Executive Chairman Bill Ford and the company's board, Fields has committed the automaker to a multiyear, multibillion-dollar overhaul of Lincoln that includes a significant investment in a new premium vehicle platform that will underpin several future Lincoln vehicles, four sources told Reuters. Ford could spend $5 billion or more over the next five years to revive Lincoln, revamp its product portfolio and reposition it as a true competitor to such global luxury leaders as Daimler AG's (DAIGn.DE) Mercedes-Benz and BMW AG (BMWG.DE), the sources said.
