The Halloween One-Way was a tremendous success. People parked and walked. Parents chatted in the streets. Drivers and pedestrians negotiated with each other slowly and respectfully, and often thanked the yellow-vested volunteers (vests graciously lent by Enstar and Homer Police Department). Cindy, P...

Everyone who lives on the Kenai understands that our fisheries don’t just power our economy; they also are an important part of our Alaska heritage. Our state government should work to support our fisheries, not undermine them.  Unfortunately, Cook Inlet fishermen have been unable to get wate...

 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...
