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.

  • Wall Street Week Ahead: Spring fever brings hope for U.S. earnings
    Several behemoths, including Apple, the largest U.S. company by market value, as well as Microsoft, McDonald's (MCD.N) and AT&T (NYS:T), are due to report earnings. They'll be accompanied by highfliers like Netflix and Facebook, giving the first real cross-section of the state of corporate America as temperatures rise across the country and investors hope to put the cold weather behind them. Strategists will also be looking for clues on how badly China's slowdown hits U.S. corporate results. The first batch of earnings came out as equities were working their way through a selloff led by trading-crowd favorites like Netflix and the biotech stocks.
  • Rajaratnam's brother loses bid to dismiss insider trading charges
    Rengan Rajaratnam, the younger brother of imprisoned hedge fund manager Raj Rajaratnam, on Friday lost a bid to dismiss some of the insider trading charges leveled against him last year. U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald in Manhattan ruled that the indictment adequately alleged the essential elements of the crimes charged. A lawyer for Rajaratnam did not respond to a request for comment. A spokeswoman for Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara declined to comment.
  • Compensation battle rages four years after BP's U.S. oil spill
    Jules Melancon, the last remaining oyster fisherman on an island dotted with colorful houses on stilts, says he has not found a single oyster alive in his leases in the area since the leak and relies on an onshore oyster nursery to make a living. The British oil major has paid out billions of dollars in compensation under a settlement experts say is unprecedented in its breadth. Some claimants are satisfied, but others are irate that BP is now challenging aspects of the settlement. The oil company has spent over $26 billion on cleaning up, fines and compensation for the disaster, which killed 11 people on the rig and spilled millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico for 87 days after the blast on April 20, 2010.
