  • Thank you, Homer City Council. Let’s hope this week’s discussion and council vote will preserve the seasonal sales tax exemption on nonprepared food items for good. Canning this perennial discussion is long overdue. Like others who testified Monday night, we believe a tax on food is regressive. ...

  • One of the best things about a new year is the clean slate it represents. It’s a great time to evaluate priorities, reflect on what went right and what didn’t in the year that’s just passed and decide what new strategies may yield better results.  It’s also a good time of year to look a...

  • “Perseverance furthers.” Those two words from the I Ching, the ancient Chinese oracle and book of wisdom, could well be the watchwords of getting natural gas to Homer. As the new year gets underway, it’s critical that city and Enstar officials, as well as community members, continue to perseve...

  • Last week you printed the obituary of my sister Sally Rader. After the memorial was over and all of the out- of-town family and friends had left, I sat down in a quiet moment to reread the obituary and discovered to my dismay that in our grief, we had neglected to include Sally's husband Robin Rader...

  • While changes weren’t made this week, it appears that some Homer City Council members are unwilling to let go of their desire to fund a portion of city government with a year-round tax on food. If public testimony is any indication, however, citizens don’t want the council eliminating that seaso...

  • It’s budget time, and Homer City Council members have a tough job finding the balance between community needs (the bare essentials) and community wants (the things that contribute to our quality of life).
