Below are my personal views on two issues on the Oct. 1 ballot, based on my research and my years on both the school board and assembly.   Regarding the $50,000 exemption, this exemption  will shift the tax. Let me explain. Yes, it will require 2/10ths of a mill to make up the borough loss...

Is it so horrible, really, to be inconvenienced by something that does so much good?  I walk to work every day. While on my pleasant stroll I often come across garbage, (which affects me like a festering sty) I cannot help but pick it up. In the recent past, that piece of eyesore was a plastic ...

When the city of Homer passed the single-use bag ban I did my best cartwheel.   Oh the sweet victory of common sense legislation, of indisputable action. I  wasn’t shocked that our town leaders would pass a landmark law. I beamed with pride knowing that Homer is, yet again, the progressi...

Even in the busy summer months, the generosity of our community continues to be displayed here at  the Homer Community Food Pantry. We have been blessed with generous donations of frozen fish and absolutely green vegetables from local gardeners who planted a row of vegetables for us. St. August...
