20 years ago in the Homer News:
Most of the playground equipment at Karen Hornaday Park is unsafe and needs to be replaced, a risk management expert from the borough told the city of Homer. If a group of concerned residents get their way, new equipment could become a reality by spring 1997. Members of the ad hoc Playground Project Committee are working out the details of a program that could result in the design and construction of a new playground at the popular park if the financing, equipment and volunteer help can be found.
