I drove by the airport on Kachemak Drive last Wednesday and saw a peculiar sight. There were a couple Homer Police cars, an airport fire truck and a couple of airport manager’s vehicles out on the runway. Odd sight in and of itself, but even stranger when you see the Era Alaska aircraft sitt...

  The health of 40,000 Alaskans is on the line so that Gov. Sean Parnell can assure the Tea Party that nobody hates President Obama as much as he does. Because of Parnell’s refusal to expand Medicaid, thousands of poor Alaskans and their children will fall through a hole in the Affordabl...

I’d like to respond to Rev. Richard Olson’s letter to the editor. I don’t know you, but I feel you are “right on” with your comments about the Dems and the GOP being the wings of the same bird, and are gradually selling the United States to foreign countries by raising the debt ceiling. We...

This message is for anyone who is willing to take the time to read it.  I’m the mother of Kimberly Payne, if you’ve read the papers lately, you know who she is. But, you may not know me. I chose to believe my daughter was doing fine. I chose to believe her lies. Now you know where that got ...

School-grown and nurtured garden potatoes were the fare of the week at Fireweed Academy last Thursday. Topped with garden veggies and all the fixin’s, the K-2 students dove into their “Potato Sundaes” with gusto. Our second year garden, including opportunities like these “Potato Sundaes,” ...

Halloween is approaching and soon more than 500 robots, knights, witches, wonderwomen, princesses, pirates, goblins, ghosts, aliens and angels will come to our Bayview-Mountainview neighborhood to trick-or-treat in one of Homer’s most cherished annual traditions. But so, too, comes an increasing a...

I was recently criticized in cyber-space. Here’s what was posted: “Surprised that the News published this snarky letter, which obviously was aimed at one person with whom the writer has a political disagreement with.” They went on to ask what a “natural born” anthropologist was. Here’s w...

We, as a group of Bristol Bay drift fishermen, are deeply concerned about the actions of the Alaska State Troopers and their approach of targeting us, so-called “Russian” fishermen.  This salmon season, around July 2013, it has become increasingly obvious to us of the unfair treatment of ou...

Imagine two well established packs of dogs (say pack R and pack D), roaming  the streets. As territorial critters are wont to do, they pee on walls and prominent objects in order to mark the borders of their respective homelands.   In the areas of their territory which are disputed, one fi...
