SALON SURVIVING AFTER EIGHT YEARS

Marlenes Salon has seen hairstylists come and go since it opened eight years ago, but two faces remain consistent: Marlene Shields and Leslie Balmain.

The hairstylists remain, although since Shields marriage, she is splitting her home between Brookings and Albany. Therefore, starting Sept. 1, she will be available only every other week, Monday through Friday, by appointment, Shields said.

Balmain will continue to be available at the salon Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and evenings by appointment. Walk-ins are welcome, Balmain said.

Not only is Balmain keeping the shop open, but she has been serving as the landscaper.

Both Shields and Balmain have been hairstyling for 17 years and they have worked together since opening the shop eight years ago.

The salon prides itself in keeping updated on the latest styles and techniques and continues plans for expansion. They said they are currently seeking a manicurist.

For an appointment, call Shields at (541) 469-5678 or Balmain at 469-0184.

  • President Xi says China should not focus on growth rate only
    Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Saturday that the country should not focus on its economic growth rate only, reiterating China's push for a more sustainable, higher-quality expansion. Chinese leaders have announced an economic growth target of around 7 percent for this year, below the 7.5 percent goal in 2014 and the slowest rate in a quarter-century. Analysts anticipate further interest rate cuts in China this year.
  • Fed's Yellen sees gradual rate hikes starting this year
    SAN FRANCISCO/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen signaled that the U.S. central bank will likely start raising borrowing costs later this year, even before inflation and wages have returned to health, but emphasized the return to normal interest rates will be gradual. A downturn in core inflation or wage growth could force the Fed to delay the first increase to borrowing costs since 2006, the central bank's chief said on Friday, but policymakers should not wait for inflation to near the Fed's 2-percent goal before tightening monetary policy. The Fed has held short-term borrowing costs near zero since December 2008. After the first rate increase, Yellen said, a further, gradual tightening in monetary policy will likely be warranted.
  • Intel in talks to buy Altera, shares of firms surge
    The acquisition of Altera, which makes programmable chips widely used in cellphone towers, the military and other industrial applications, would underscore Intel Chief Executive Officer Brian Krzanich's determination to expand into new markets as the personal computer industry loses steam. Earlier this month, Intel slashed nearly $1 billion from its first-quarter revenue forecast to $12.8 billion, plus or minus $300 million, as small businesses put off upgrading their personal computers. Shares of Altera shot up about 28 percent after the talks were first reported by the Wall Street Journal, closing at $44.39 per share on the Nasdaq. Intel shares also gained on the news, rising 6.4 percent to $32.
