The changes and plans for three downtown Brookings businesses Redwood Theatre, KBSC Television, and Java Java Coffee House were outlined Tuesday for the Rotary Club of Brookings-Harbor.

In addition, Terry Patterson told the Rotary Club that his family has plans to start up a farmers market in downtown Brookings.

The decision to paint the Redwood pink was controversial, even among family members, Patterson said, but it has been worthwhile in terms of advertising value. There are changes inside the theater as well including a new sound system. New seating has been ordered, Patterson said, and he hopes they can also upgrade the aging projector in the near future.

Patterson said more live events are also in the works at the Redwood, and that the theater is available for rent by private parties for events.

More live music is also in the works for Java Java, Patterson said, the nearby coffee shop that had been closed for several months. Other features of the shop, he said, include space for small group meetings and free internet access.

At KBSC, Patterson said plans are in the works for several additions to the programming, including a live call-in program to discuss community issues, and broadcast of both Brookings-Harbor High and Del Norte High sports events either live or taped.

Our plans might be a little ambitious, but thats what were aiming for, he said.

Asked about the stations signal, Patterson said it is now at 90 percent of its licensed strength on Channel 49. I can get the signal in most areas of Brookings and virtually all of Harbor, he said. KBSC is also available on Channel 9 Charter Communications cable line-ups in Brookings-Harbor and Crescent City.

For satellite customers, Patterson said, most companies will install a switch to allow viewers to go from satellite reception to regular antenna reception.

On the farmers market plans, Patterson said the group is looking at a parking lot near the new U.S. Post Office for its Saturday events. This is not a flea market, Patterson said. Were looking for produce and hand-crafted items and food booths.

  • Euro sags ahead of inflation test, Ukraine nerves weigh
    The euro was near a year low and on course for a fourth week of falls on Friday ahead of what was expected to be another stodgy euro zone inflation reading, and as tensions with Russia over Ukraine kept the region on edge. Economists polled by Reuters expect it to take another tick down to 0.3 percent, but it could easily be a shade lower and whatever the outcome, it is likely to stir bets the European Central Bank will need to take further support measures. Those expectations, plus worries that persistent tensions between Russia and Ukraine could damage the broader region's already-weak recovery, pulled the euro back to $1.3173 (EUR=) and kept safe-haven German bonds "What is more important for the ECB is inflation expectations and what is worrying for them is that they have been going down," said Philippe Gudin de Vallerin head of European research at Barclays.
  • Special Report: The billion-dollar fall of the house of Espirito Santo
    On June 9, with his 150-year-old Portuguese corporate dynasty close to collapse, patriarch Ricardo Espirito Santo Salgado made a desperate attempt to save it. Salgado signed two letters to Venezuela’s state oil company, which had bought $365 million in bonds from his family’s holding company. The "cartas-conforto" – letters of comfort – were written on the letterhead of Banco Espirito Santo, a large lender controlled by the family. "Banco Espirito Santo guarantees ... it will provide the necessary funds to allow reimbursement at maturity,” said the letters.
  • Euro zone inflation dips as expected in August
    Euro zone inflation dropped as expected to a fresh five year low in August, data showed on Friday, but it was not likely to force the European Central Bank into immediate policy intervention next week, Consumer prices in the 18 countries using the euro rose by just 0.3 percent year-on-year in August, the smallest increase since October 2009, the European Union's statistics office Eurostat data showed. Inflation, which dropped unexpectedly to 0.4 percent in July, has been locked in what ECB President Mario Draghi called a 'danger zone' of below 1 percent since October last year. Vanishing inflation strengthens poses problems for the ECB as it tries to respond to the bloc's stalled recovery, which is facing additional struggles because of economic sanctions imposed against Russia in July over its involvement in the deepening conflict in Ukraine.
