I strongly support construction of a new police station, minus the $1.297 million firing range. However, I oppose locating the new station at the HERC site unless the design team produces an acceptable conceptual plan for both the police station and a future fire station on this site.   The cur...

I am disturbed by a trend in our current political climate: Elected officials repeatedly disregarding the expressed will of the people.   We live in a community that is enclosed in layers of governments, one encasing another, like Russian dolls. On the local level, we have a city government tha...

I am so disgusted with our city council classifying the seniors as a burden to our community of Homer. I personally think that they all need to give us an apology for this statement.

Just about all the money that Bill and I earn on our fixed income goes right back into the Homer community. You can ask the myriad contactors and repair persons, the lawn maintenance companies, the utilities, city of Homer itself, our veterinarian, dog groomer, grocery store, excavator, house painte...
