I had dinner last Sunday evening at my daughter’s home. She told me of Eva Saulitis passing. I only knew   Eva through what she recently wrote in the Alaskan Dispatch and the Homer News which gave me quite a blast of her deep, rich and beautiful soul.  I wasn’t going to make comment on...

Behold, Micciche the Magnificent. For his latest trick, Sen. Peter Micciche pre-filed SB 120, a measure guaranteed to turn that frown upside down for the Jerry Prevo gay-bashing crowd while infuriating just about everyone else who has any compassion for our LGBT brothers and sisters.    Bu...

Another holiday season has passed and once again our Homer community looks forward to a new year. Though these types of letters have been consistent through the years, it remains ever worthy of redundancy. Once again the people and businesses of Homer have reflected the very essence of what Sha...
