Of our total income, 4 percent came from fundraisers (dinner, bake sale); 15 percent from grants, and a whopping 81 percent (3 percent more than 2011) came from private contributions from ou...

  • Flex students greatly enjoyed the opportunity to listen to Matt Andersen. Our best thanks go out to the Homer Council on the Arts. Mr. Andersen’s voice was so raw and unique, a real treat to the ears. Bringing in such a great artist was a real mood booster for all of the students here at Flex. Our...

  • Second installment of why I love our country and why I love paying taxes: Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Brilliant. My parents are incredibly hard working and generous. They spent nearly 30 years building a full and prosperous life here in Homer. Self employed and under-insured, a devastati...

  • This week the Kenai Peninsula Economic Development District, funded with public money, is holding an “Industry Outlook Forum.” On the agenda are Enstar, Buccaneer, Pebble and Donlin Gold — all corporate, extractive development proponents funded by big international banks.

  • Who was it that said “Every time a new law or regulation is passed, citizens have a little less freedom”? No truer is that than now. Gov. Sean Parnell has introduced House Bill 77, which cuts the citizen right to appeal a number of agency decisions on development issues. By prohibiting a comment...

  • The latest buzz is, that everyone needs to pay their fair share. While we all know this will never be reality, we need to ask ourselves what is fair.

  • I moved to Homer in the spring of 2011 and was happy to find a charter school without a long waiting list. Before coming to Homer my son had attended elementary schools in both Oregon and Maui. Fireweed Academy has by far exceeded any of those experiences. At Fireweed we get the benefits of creative...

  • At first I felt a pang in my stomach when I heard Obama speak of Ronald Reagan as an ally to ban semi-automatic weapons. I spent the summer of ’80 in MCRD, San Diego. President Ronald Reagan was my Commander-in-Chief and if he had given the order to use my rifle to mow down anybody who disagreed w...

  • I got this straight from the mouth of Black Berry Bog Brahman, who fashions himself a channel for old Abe Lincoln: “Save the Grand Old Party: end the Tea Party’s stranglehold in 2014.” Anyway, wasn’t President Obama’s inauguration speech great? Listening to him, on the same day of Martin L...
