I attempted to vote on Friday as I am going out of town and will not be able to vote here locally. Upon arriving at the Homer City Hall I was given an absentee ballot with no Republicans on it, only all the other parties. In this election, my choice for senator was a Republican candidate who would b...

The United States today is not the free nation it was, even 10 years ago. Although the slow decline of the broad liberties Americans have long held has been going on for decades, it has accelerated enough in the last few years that ordinary people are feeling it close to home. Security checkpoints n...

I was not in attendance at one of the recent debates about Prop 1 (oil taxation) but I saw part of it later. Someone asked the question “why is big oil spending 13 million dollars in a media blitz trying to convince us to vote No on One?” The response: “the oil companies are simply trying ...

Former legislator and Halibut Cove resident Clem Tillion wrote a “spot-on” editorial for the Alaska Dispatch News Aug.10. I agree that ACES does need adjusting to best serve Alaska’s long term interests and that a “no” vote is not the way to achieve it. A “yes” vote will give the Legis...

I agree with Carrie Reed’s excellent letter of Aug. 7: Vote for Byron Mallott who worked successfully on financial affairs for the state of Alaska, including the permanent fund, for both Republican and Democratic governors. Today, Alaska has shortfalls in retirement funds and inadequately fun...

 I want to thank the entire Homer Area for supporting our children and schools. Homer supports its schools and it is obvious from the number of hours people volunteer, to the number of raffle tickets that are purchased and the large crowds that pack our music performances, sporting events, play...

We want to thank the community and all our long-time customers and friends who have supported Picture Alaska art gallery and The Upstairs Boutique for so very long. My husband and I opened Picture Alaska more than 24 years ago and The Upstairs Boutique 16 years ago. It has been a fun and challenging...

I have never been a fan of the 1 percent for art that accompanies new city or state construction. The fact that the new harbormaster’s building includes close to $19,000 for art is just astounding.
