Reneé Brooks appointed to the Wild Rivers board

Gold Beach resident Reneé Brooks was recently appointed to the Wild Rivers Community Foundation Board of Directors.

The Wild Rivers Community Foundation’s mission is to inspire people and communities by facilitating dialogue and encouraging charitable giving to support the region now and forever.  The foundation serves Curry and Del Norte counties.

“This was a great opportunity to become involved with an organization that focuses on providing communities with the support they need to solve their own problems while linking them to resources in their area,” Brooks said.  

“The Wild Rivers Community Foundation looks at each community as having individual needs, but also works to build on the commonalities shared between each community in the Wild Rivers Region,” she said.

Brooks is Administrative Coordinator for Curry Health Network and serves on the Curry County Commission on Children and Families, Curry County Drug Free Coalition, Curry County Human Services Advisory Committee, Special Transportation Fund Advisory Board and the Local Public Safety Coordinating Council.  Reneé is also a Port Orford Rotarian.

She has a BSc in Psychology from Eastern Oregon University. She has a proven track record in public service, having worked for the Curry County Sheriff’s Department 911 Center, Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) as a Child Welfare Protective Service Worker and later as the Manager of the DHS Volunteer Program for the area of Coos and Curry counties.  

Brooks has experience in nonprofit organizations at the board level and was the executive director of South Coast Independent Living Services. She is a business woman and is an active member of the Gold Beach Chamber of Commerce. In addition, she is an international board certified lactation consultant and a certified birth assistant for Curry General Hospital.

She lived for one year in Costa Rica where she worked with a small hospital providing education and consultation to new mothers. As a Port Orford Rotarian, she and her club are currently working with the Curry Health Network on an international project to purchase pediatric medical equipment for that same Costa Rican hospital.

  • Buffett's Berkshire takes $4.48 billion stake in Phillips 66
    The 57.98 million-share, or roughly 10.8 percent, stake was revealed in a Friday night filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Phillips 66 shares closed Friday at $77.23. Berkshire once held a large stake in the Houston-based company, but shed nearly two-thirds of it in February 2014 when it swapped $1.35 billion of shares for a chemicals business that it folded into its Lubrizol unit.
  • Fed's Fischer sees inflation rebound, allowing gradual rate hikes
    U.S. inflation will likely rebound as pressure from the dollar fades, allowing the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates gradually, Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said on Saturday in a speech careful not to overreact to a possible Chinese slowdown. The influential U.S. central banker was circumspect whether he would prefer to raise rates from near zero at a much-anticipated policy meeting on Sept. 16-17. The cautious confidence from Fischer, as well as from Bank of England Governor Mark Carney who spoke at a conference alongside him, suggests at least two major central banks are poised to look beyond a week of financial-market turmoil brought on by fears that China's economy is faltering.
  • Focus turns to U.S. data as China slowdown looms
    After a dizzying two weeks that saw a rapid plunge and rebound in equity prices, investors are looking forward to a week of economic data that may provide clarity on the likelihood of a near-term U.S. interest rate hike and help tamp down the market's recent wild swings. The economic figures will culminate in Friday?s jobs report that should reveal more about the strength of the U.S. economy. Car sales, construction spending, the Federal Reserve's "beige book" and jobs growth may show the economy is strong enough to withstand the first rate hike in nearly a decade from the Federal Reserve, despite worries about a hard landing for China?s economy.
