The Homer Foundation is an essential partner for non-profit organizations here in Homer, and Homer Council on the Arts is grateful for their generosity.

March 29 I sat in a “town” meeting to hear the report of the Stroudmeyer leader who has worked with a Health Task Force representing the Kenai Peninsula. Why wasn’t this meeting announced sooner? Why was it held at 12:30-1 p.m. when most people were at work? I am so disappointed in that fact. ...
