  • The Homer City Council needs to come up with a new song and dance. While it may be hard for some of them to believe, residents are tired of hearing the same old refrain, which is always a version of: “If you want ____________ (fill in the blank with what’s on your wish list for the city to accom...

  • The current discussion over what the city of Homer can afford to pay in terms of employee health insurance benefits is not about whether city employees are worth what one council member has described as a “Rolls Royce” plan.  It’s about what the city can afford. Or to put it another way, ...
