Slowly, he and his brother bond, and in the process Bob rehabilitates his own scars, including the mark left on him by his childhood sweetheart (Piper Laurie).

Van Wells Building Supply

Last April, in 2018, Carl and Patty Van Wells sold Van Wells Building Supply to Gold Beach Lumber. Gold Beach Lumber has continued to be a strong supporter of the Dallas community, led by Ryan Ringer. Gold Beach Lumber carries a history that strongly resembles Van Wells Building Supplies.

Just 20 years ago, Gold Beach Lumber was the smallest lumber supply store in Curry County. Today, it is the only lumber supply store left in Gold Beach – with its only competition located 27 miles south, in Brookings. And, unlike the many supply stores in the county which have grown smaller and smaller over the years, Gold Beach Lumber has only grown larger.

Perhaps it’s the legacy of fathers and sons working together that have kept the business moving forward. Or perhaps it’s the focus on service and trust that the first owner – Clarence Ringer – insisted upon. Whatever the reason, though, Gold Beach Lumber has not only survived, but thrived.

With Ryan Ringer stepping into the position of Vice-President last fall in order to work alongside his father, Reed Ringer (President and owner), the legacy of Gold Beach Lumber now stands not just three – but four – generations strong.

Standing four generations strong, ‘Gold Beach Lumber’ and ‘Ringer’ have come to be recognized as one and the same. And if Ryan has anything to say about it – that legacy will last a while longer. We look forward to Van Wells Building Supply to continue to be a strong cornerstone in our community.

Tomas Patton – Your Local Allstate Agent

Claim service so good, it’s guaranteed. No other insurance company makes the same promise. If you’re not happy with your auto claim, the Allstate Claim Satisfaction Guarantee means you’ll get your money back—no questions asked. And, it’s included for free with standard Allstate policies.

How does it work? If you’re thinking about taking advantage of the guarantee, there are a few things you should know. You must be an Allstate customer who has had a car accident after the date Claim Satisfaction Guarantee became available. Allstate must have made a payment on your claim, but you are not happy with the experience. At that point send a letter within 180 days of the accident detailing your complaint. Allstate will then give you a six-month credit on your car insurance premium for the car involved in the claim.

Allstate offers this guarantee because customer service and satisfaction is key to them. Tomas Patton embodies this company value right here in Dallas.
