South Coast Humane Society chosen Business of the Year

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.

  • European bonds and stocks on the defensive before tight Greek vote
    Yields on top-rated German 10-year Bunds, the benchmark for European borrowing costs, fell as some investors chose to preserve their capital in low-yielding but relatively safe assets. The moves were marginal, though, as investors did not want to position too heavily on either side. "The European market is frozen ahead of the Greek referendum," said Markus Allenspach, head fixed income research at Julius Baer.
  • Greeks deeply divided heading into crucial vote
    Tens of thousands of Greeks took to the streets on Friday in rival rallies that laid bare the deep divide heading into a referendum that may decide the country?s future in Europe?s single currency. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, elected in January on a promise to end years of austerity, urged people packing Syntagma square in central Athens to spurn the tough terms of an aid deal offered by international creditors to keep the country afloat. Tsipras says they are bluffing, fearing the fallout for Europe and the global economy.
  • Aetna to buy Humana for $37 billion in largest insurance deal
    The combination will push Aetna close to Anthem Inc's (ANTM.N) No.2 insurer spot by membership, and would nearly triple Aetna's Medicare Advantage business. The deal will face antitrust scrutiny but if it goes through it would dwarf the previous largest insurance deal announced just this week, where Swiss property and casualty giant ACE Ltd (ACE.N) announced it was buying Chubb Corp (CB.N) for $28 billion.
