I agree with Carrie Reed’s excellent letter of Aug. 7: Vote for Byron Mallott who worked successfully on financial affairs for the state of Alaska, including the permanent fund, for both Republican and Democratic governors. Today, Alaska has shortfalls in retirement funds and inadequately fun...

This is a thank you letter to the fine folks who spent personal time at the Homer High School Tennis courts volunteering to do some regular maintenance and improvements to our very own facility that has served this community since the school was built. At various times we see many different kinds of...

 I want to thank the entire Homer Area for supporting our children and schools. Homer supports its schools and it is obvious from the number of hours people volunteer, to the number of raffle tickets that are purchased and the large crowds that pack our music performances, sporting events, play...

Ya know, I don’t like lawyers. I think we should put this to a vote, vote to banish lawyers from urban areas. Make them pack up and move their families, business and belongings to a rural area where they could live with other banned groups, like setnetters. Both groups would not be compensated for...

Do you like your PFD?  I do, a lot. Then elect for governor, the man who was president, chair and trustee of the permanent fund corporation: Alaskan Byron Mallott.  Carrie Reed...

Yes on Ballot Measure 1. If big oil puts $10 million into advertising to trick you and buy your votes, historically they’ll succeed. If the vote is close, the usual voter fraud will kick in. They’ll tell you they’ll put a few more drops of oil in the pipeline and make a lot of jobs, but they a...
