ROTARY HEARS ABOUT BUSINESS PLANS

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.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
