TITLE COMPANY SOLD

GRANTS PASS First American Title Insurance Co. of Oregon announced its purchase of Josephine-Crater Title Cos. Inc.

Our companies have a 34 year history with each other as underwriter and agent, and this change will simply seem like the culmination of a very long engagement, said Jim DeCourcey, president of Josephine-Crater Title.

We are delighted to bring our direct operations to Southern Oregon, said Parker Kennedy, president of First American.

Josephine-Crater Title began with Josephine Title Co. in Grants Pass in 1956, and expanded to include Josephine and Jackson counties in 1959, with the creation of Crater Title Insurance Co.

DeCourceys father, James Monroe DeCourcey, founded the companies, which have expanded from three to more than 100 employees.

In 1996, Ocean Title Co. in Curry County became a part of the corporation.

We have built and maintained our market position by taking good care of our local customers, and by being good corporate citizens in our community of Southern Oregon, DeCourcey said. First American shares the values and principles that have made us successful, leading their markets throughout the Northwest.

Our ability to bring Southern Oregon the best possible service will be strengthened by the change.

  • Iran plans to buy 80-90 Boeing, Airbus planes a year, post sanctions
    Iran plans to buy as many as 90 planes per year from Boeing (BA.N) and Airbus (AIR.PA) to revamp its antiquated fleet once Western sanctions are lifted, its state news agency IRNA quoted a senior aviation official as saying on Sunday. "Iran will buy a total of 80-90 planes per year from the two aviation giants in the first phase of renovating its air fleet," said Mohammad Khodakarami, the caretaker director of Iran?s Civil Aviation Organization, according to IRNA. Last month's nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers has raised the prospect of banking and trade sanctions on Iran being lifted, perhaps around the end of this year, which would mean a chance to renew a fleet of commercial aircraft whose average age of 23 years is almost twice the international average.
  • Only a payrolls surprise could shake stalling market
    Unless next week's payrolls report is an outlier, investors should expect a continuation of the directionless market that has kept the S&P 500 trading in place for most of the year. Should July post strong job gains, it would point to an economy strong enough for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates for the first time in almost a decade.
  • Verizon's workers say no strike for now, union talks continue
    Verizon Communications Inc and the unions representing its wireline unit employees on the U.S. East Coast said work will go on and talks continue after their current contract expired. Since June, the unions have been in talks with Verizon over the company's plans to cut costs by controlling healthcare and pension-related benefits over a three-year period. Last week, the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers that represent over 37,000 wireline employees said they had voted to go on strike, if needed, after their contract expired on Aug. 1 at midnight.
