There  have been so many times that Maritime Helicopters has been transportation for our children’s parties that we really feel that they should get some well deserved recognition. If it is Santa Claus and his elves or the Easter Bunny and (her) helpers, the Fell family has always been there ...

Halibut has been an important part of my 35 years of Alaska experience. From longlining to charter fishing, and finally now as a personal use fisherman, halibut is a staple for my entire family.

Truth: We owe it to each other The truth to every lie will always come to light no matter how long it takes. I found, in my youth, that it became embarrassing to admit to the stories I would tell. Realizing this, it became apparent that the truth was something that could not be deni...

This letter to editor is to say goodbye to Misty my companion animal for the last 12 years. She had helped me cope with anxiety disorder along with other health issues since moving to Homer almost 10 years ago. She used to visit Bishop’s Beach regularly up until the last couple of years.
