Ever learned how to receive? I mean truly receive? Life is full of gifts freely given. It is a part of life that we somehow learn to receive these  gifts, and part of life that many of us will learn this lesson under difficult circumstances.  So I was pretty fresh out of college and marrie...

I wish to share my most sincere gratitude and appreciation to the people of Homer and to Timeless Toys for the donations to the Philippine Red Cross and for their support for the relief efforts of my wife, Berna Brown, and my son, Nathaniel Brown. My wife and son were in the Philippines assisting th...

In response to Holly Delauter’s letter in last week’s Homer News, we are mindful of the old saying “there are two sides to every story.” We remember this event very differently. We do appreciate Ms. Delauter’s efforts on behalf of this stray dog. And yes, the Animal Shelter does need bette...

Alaska’s system of political primaries ensures that only the most radical candidates will advance to November’s elections. Both major parties choose  the candidates who are skilled at raising money and scaring and angering voters and who often don’t have a clue about how to govern.  ...

The Kenai River Sportfishing Association is currently pursuing an aggressive campaign to “Save our Kenai Kings.” Perhaps you have heard their radio ads or seen their networking on social media.

The newcomers of Homer do not understand the need for respect of Homer’s forefathers, those who made Homer the welcome refuge it is, honoring critical habitat as well. The new “implants” believe money will solve all the problems.   They are wrong. These United States are failing “the pe...

I was one of the biggest (and most vocal) opponents of the push for a home-rule charter in the 1970s. My mind hasn’t changed in the ensuing 35 years.  The current problems being experienced in Homer are from too much government power — home-rule would give the city even more power. Why in t...

I was pleased to note that Paul Eneboe, in his historical account of the attempt to create home rule government in Homer (Point of View, Homer News, Nov. 14, 2013) got it exactly right: There was no valid argument for home rule  in Homer in 1975. Less so when the members of the Homer Charter Co...

How hauntingly beautiful and poignant were Tom Irons’ words in last week’s Point of View; how they really brought home those stunning, cold-cruel days of November 1963, especially set against the Blanchester, Ohio paper’s announcement of his departure along with two of his classmates to view P...

I would like to voice an opinion of and express my gratitude to a lady who performs a great service to Homer. I am referring to Susan Bunting. She is the audiologist who operates the speech and hearing clinic known as Hear Say, located on East End Road. She helps a broad span of people from the very...
