The city of Homer runs a library and community recreation program that need more money for their worthwhile and appreciated programs, money the city says it does not have. Yet, the 2014 budget again contains $66,500 for the Pratt Museum.   The city agreed in 1967 to maintain the museum if for a...

There are hundreds of children and families trick-or-treating this Thursday in neighborhoods throughout Homer. The residents of East Bayview and Mountainview avenues remind you that East Bayview and Mountainview are “Halloween One-Ways” from 5-8 p.m., east on Mountainview, west on Bayview. Walk,...

I would like to say a good word about the Continuum Quixotic stage production my wife and I saw Oct. 18. But how can you find just one word that can express the fantastic, extraordinary, unbelievable performance? I would like to thank Homer Council on the Arts, all its members and our very special t...

It saddens me that Alaska Ferry Adventures has to shutter its doors and release its staff due to the recent budget actions of the Alaska Marine Highway System.  This past summer I returned to visit Alaska from my home in Chicago after serving in the U.S. Army at Fort Richardson from 1966-1968. ...

 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 ...

The adjective quixotic (from Don Quixote) means exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical. Indeed. At first glance, the idea of bringing Quixotic to Homer was truly quixotic. The cost, the size, the tech requirements, the time — how could we? But we did it — with hundreds of supporters...
