“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”  Three weeks ago, in our own backyard, our loveable, fluffy white Samoyed “Latte” was trampled by a yearling moose as it ran in confusion trying to understand why its mom didn’t want him anymore. The encounter left Latte pa...

It is with sadness that I witness the awe and ado directed at the new Kachemak Bay “water trail.” Why, how did we ever do without it?  Years ago I used to kayak the bay without benefit of being told where to go and where to camp, and by divine grace returned unscathed. Of course, I had the ...

I would like to thank area fire departments for their quick and professional response to the house fire on Rainbow Court. They are amazing, dedicated volunteers who do a dangerous, difficult job, and I cannot express our gratitude sufficiently. Sadly, our neighbor lost his life in the fire.  In...

I want to thank the Tin Roof Fund and the Homer Foundation for awarding me  the Beluga Tails Nonfiction scholarship for the 2014 school year. Even though I have not yet set a foot inside of Bard College, my friends, my family members, and members of our community have been asking me what I inte...

While walking on the “pedestrian area” of Bishop’s Beach on Sunday, I spoke with several people who were parked in the protected berm area. Most said that they were unaware of the restriction and just thought me a cranky old codger. The only folks who actually paid attention were a few kids in...

Pressed and inquired of as to if, bottom line, I’d vote Democrat or Republican, I replied there’s other choices (even if you feel the system is totally rigged). The true “powers that be” control both those parties. They make it appear that we have a choice. They get us to feud over issues th...
