The Homer Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission embraced change this year. Instead of continuing with Parks Day, an event that had been poorly attended in recent years, the commission created a whole new concept: the Trails Symposium. Homer on the Move was the brainchild of Deb Lowney, conceived ...

Much research has been done on the “Power of Five.” Five food groups make up a healthy diet. Five points make up a glowing star. Five senses help us interpret the world. According to Helping Little Kids Succeed Alaskan Style,  “Five is the key number of caring adults that every child need...

One of the things that makes Homer unique is its sense of community. The Big Read sponsored by the Friends of the Homer Public Library was meant to foster that sense of community, to give us all a chance to discuss what we find important and come together to consider the present and the future.

Isn’t it very coincidental that the $340,000 under budget on the gas line installation is almost identical to the $335,000 that Francie Roberts and the Homer City Council want to overcharge the condo owners? Edward Blickhahn (Homer resident, but not a condo owner)...

I wish to express my strong opposition to House Bill 182 and Senate Bill 97. At $17,000 per capita,  Alaska has  the most expensive  state government in the union. I am certain that every employed Alaskan would be happy with a small fraction of that  much government. What Paul Se...
