The Nov. 29 issue of the Homer News' Seawatch column reported on some of the issues the commercial fishing fleet is having with the new NMFS Observer Program. I appreciate Cristy Fry showcasing our concerns. I'd like to clarify that I fully support the development of an Electronic Monitoring System ...

Interesting letter last week by young Zoe Story wondering why women feel compelled to respond to media models which require them to reconfigure their bodies into abnormal anorexic toothpicks. I think I can assure her that, with respect to women's body shapes, most men are programmed by nature to pre...

I wanted to applaud Ms. Story's well written and insightful article on Dec. 6 drawing attention to the media's portrayal of women.

"Dear most honorable citizens dancing on the Wheel of Destiny here in our Cosmic Hamlet by the Sea" -- I would pop right out of my boots to see again the poet who coined that phrase and wrote more than 200 Letters to the Editor in that reliable unique style. Can you believe it, it was almost 13 year...

It seems that we, as people, are not as open-minded as we could be. So often we are unwilling to see the other side of things. We are convinced that the way we do something is the only way that works. When someone does something that doesn't fit in our approach, we react to it growling and snapping,...
