Rustic is the key word to describe items offered for sale by a Winchuck River area resident on her new Web site, http://www.winchuckriverstore.com. Karen Clark describes her Web site wares as a unique selection of "perfect rustic home accents."

Clark, who moved to the area from San Jose, Calif., in 1999 with her husband Jim, began using the computer as a successful selling tool after consulting several books and attending eBay University in San Jose, Calif. She remains active on eBay discussion boards where other eBay sellers share their ideas and experiences.

A few months after beginning her eBay business in 2006, she became a Power Seller, with an average of $1,000 in sales per month for three consecutive months and feedback from at least 100 eBay buyers, of which 98 percent or more were positive.

She also became a Trading Assistant with eBay, which qualifies her to sell for others. Her eBay store can be accessed at http://stores.ebay.com/ winchuck-river-store.

Her knowledge is shared with others in the e-Bay classes she teaches at the Brookings campus of Southwestern Oregon Community College.

Karen Clark would like to begin a group, interacting with other people using eBay.

She can be reached by phoning (541) 412-0909 or by e-mail, at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

She also encourages people to "check out our blog to see what we are up to," http://winchuckriverstore.blogspot.com.

  • Look to energy names for global demand clues
    Profit growth expectations for S&P 500 energy companies have fallen more than any other sector - from a forecast of 13.8 percent on July 1 to the current 1.8 percent, Thomson Reuters data showed. With various names due to report next week, including Exxon Mobil (XOM.N), Chevron (CVX.N), ConocoPhillips (COP.N) and National Oilwell Varco (NOV.N), there are hopes that executives will suggest that the fall in oil and share prices has overstated the outlook for these names. The energy sector over the last 20 weeks has spiraled from being the market leader to now ranking as its most distant laggard, according to a Relative Rotation Graph study, which analyzes the relative performance of the constituents of an index. The S&P energy sector up about 6 percent from Oct. 15, while the S&P 500 is up 5.5 percent from its Oct. 15 low and the benchmark index on Friday posted its best weekly gain since early January 2013.
  • Deutsche Bank lawyer found dead by suicide in New York
    A senior Deutsche Bank regulatory lawyer has been found dead in New York after committing suicide, New York City officials said on Saturday.

Gambino was an associate general counsel and a managing director who worked for the German bank for 11 years, according to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported his death.

  • China's auto market growth may halve to 7 percent this year: industry body head
    Growth in China's auto market, the world's biggest, will halve to 7 percent this year weighed down by a slowing economy, the head of an industry body said on Saturday. "Personally, I think growth this year can reach 7 percent," Dong Yang, secretary general of the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), told reporters on the sidelines of an industry conference in Shanghai. The auto industry would reflect that but typically lags the economic cycle by a bit." CAAM had forecast China's auto market, which grew by 13.9 percent last year, to expand at 8.3 percent in 2014.
