South Coast Humane Society in Brookings has been selected Business of the Year Award by Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce.

Each year the chamber asks its membership for nominations for the award, according to Les Cohen, chamber executive director. Nominees are businesses that are not only successful, but that have also been actively involved in the community during the past year, emulating the chamber’s mission “… of helping to create and maintain a viable economy that provides all citizens with a high quality of life.”

Nominations are reviewed by the chamber’s board of directors and awardees are selected by a majority vote. 

 

Nominations referenced South Coast Humane Society as “… keeping animals safe and healthy; … providing free spay and neutering services, and … school-based and general population education programs.”

“We at South Coast Humane Society are incredibly proud to have received the Business of the Year Award from the Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce,” said Audrey Morris-Bartreau, SCHS director. “We appreciate the recognition of the work we do for our community and really want to thank everyone for their continued support.

“Our shelter, low-cost veterinary clinic, animal food bank, and fundraising thrift store could not continue to grow and thrive without the help of the businesses and individuals in our community who do so much to help.”

Previous recipients include Best Western Brookings Inn (now known as Brookings Inn Resort); The Book Dock; Chetco Federal Credit Union, Kerr’s Ace Hardware, Best Western Beachfront Inn, KURY Radio, CAL-OR Insurance Specialists Inc. and Slugs ’N Stones ’N Ice Cream Cones.

  • China, Japan August factory surveys signal economic softness
    BEIJING/TOKYO (Reuters) - China's manufacturing activity hit a three-month low in August, raising the case for fresh policy steps to keep growth on track, while a Reuters poll showed Japan's economic recovery is likely to be modest despite a small acceleration in the factory sector.
  • Exclusive: U.S. regulators step up warnings to banks for poor risk-spotting
    The firms who received the warnings are among the largest banks in the world, but the sources declined to name individual firms because the enforcement actions are not public. Banks are responding to the stepped-up pressure by hiring people with experience in data governance and analytics. One of the sources said recruitment calls have spiked in the last 18 months as regulators have issued more non-public enforcement actions. The world's largest banks have only grown bigger since the 2007-2009 financial crisis, and now contain even more separate entities involved in a dizzying web of credit obligations and trading positions.
