I so very much want to thank Billy Choate for baring his life to us about his experiences with the cult of WKFL. I don’t know Billy, but I so appreciate his open heart.  I know being this open comes with a certain amount of pain.    I and my family also have lived here for many year...

Very courageous and insightful Point of View by Billy Choate, last week, regarding Brother Asaiah’s close association with the WKFL “cult.” I don’t question the cult concept wherein a “super-predator” such as Krishna Venta, akin to David Koresh of the Waco Branch Dividian cult, assumed s...

The Homer Cycling Club would like to extend our warmest thank-you to the dashing Mr. Homer (formally Lucas Thoning) of this year’s Winter Carnival for donating the prize money to our organization. Remember, when you ride a bike, you get to dance in the streets every day of the year. Kim Mc...

Even in the dark cold winter, we are warmed and loved by  the love-letter season. Here is one of hundreds of love letters which Brother Asaiah sent to the Homer newspapers over the years:  “The high powered psychic atmosphere that pulsates in the aura of our beautiful Hamlet by the s...
