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.

  • Factory activity in Europe, Asia cools; demand lull a concern
    BANGALORE/SYDNEY (Reuters) - Factory activity in Europe and Asia cooled in August after a strong July, as new orders dwindled in the face of escalating tensions in Ukraine and a patchy recovery in China, purchasing managers indexes showed. Despite euro zone manufacturers barely raising their prices, growth in the region slowed slightly more than initially thought, and activity in China's vast factory sector slackened on weak foreign and domestic demand, stoking speculation that further policy stimulus would be needed. "A concerted slowdown in the China, euro zone and UK manufacturing PMIs as the second quarter gets under way raises alarm bells about global demand conditions," said Lena Komileva, chief economist at G+ Economics in London.
  • Investors look past Ukraine, focus on ECB
    World markets advanced on Monday despite the conflict in Ukraine, focusing on whether the European Central Bank will announce plans for economic stimulus when it meets this week. Ukraine reported its forces were under fire from Russian tanks again on Monday, as new signs emerged that the turmoil was damaging the European economy. Latin American stocks mostly rose, with Brazil's benchmark Bovespa index (.BVSP) leading gains after an opinion poll showed declining re-election chances for President Dilma Rousseff, accused by investors of being excessively interventionist in the economy. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko accused Russia on Monday of "direct and undisguised aggression", after warning over the weekend of a possible "full-scale war."
  • U.S. inflation bonds back in vogue
    Fund managers said the rising cost of housing - which accounts for as much as a third or more of various measures of inflation and is outpacing other consumer cost increases - has revived price pressure in the economy.
