Point of View

  • What Gov. Jay Hammond actually wrote may not be exactly what Sen. Peter Micciche remembered at his town meeting last Friday in Homer. The senator said he agreed with Hammond that 66 percent of oil income belonged with government. Of course, with ACES, the escalator clause has raised the state take,...

  • I met Sen. Micciche at the Homer Town Hall meeting on March 8. My comment to him began by saying I was impressed with his Homer News story, Feb. 28, where he met with former Alaska Sen. Vic Fisher and "… ended up having a great history lesson for about 30 minutes." I mentioned that I had seen the...

  • I want to ask the questions that make us bristle. The goal: investigate something that makes me uncomfortable while holding a space of compassion, i.e. no judgment. Isn't the burlesque show, which raises money for community nonprofits, just trumped up stripping? The charitable giving just a smoke s...

  • We were pleased to see Sen. Mark Begich's comments about the EPA's watershed assessment for Bristol Bay during his recent visit to Homer. While many of our elected officials in Alaska and Washington, D.C., have taken an ill-informed, uncompromising stance against the watershed assessment, Sen. Begic...

  • Last week, Dr. Allan Gee, the Homer High School principal, disallowed my daughter, Barae, from participating in the Alaska State Nordic Ski Championships because she missed more than 10 minutes of her first period class before her team traveled to Anchorage the day before the event. As a freshman pa...

  • I'm thrilled. Young women are leading the way on women's rights in Homer and in the world. Zoe Story, 17, a Homer High School student, described how gaunt versions of girls and women in fashion magazines reduce self-esteem and encourage eating disorders like anorexia. In a Homer News Point of View p...

  • Recent challenges to the new railroad to Port MacKenzie in Knik Arm have prompted calls to punish the public interest groups who challenged this short-sighted project. As the chief advocate for one of those groups, I think citizens should be rewarded for trying to save Alaskan tax dollars while prot...

  • "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."-- Albert Einstein "In times of profound change, the learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists."-- Eric Hoffer...

  • I have called Alaska home for more than 40 years. Anyone who has been here that long knows that we are a resource driven state — fish, oil, gold, coal and other minerals, timber — unless and until we tap those resources we starve and freeze in the dark. It’s the only reason we have roads and s...

  • I’ve resisted the urge to write in response to those with extreme anti-corporate leftist views that so regularly appear in our weekly paper, but this time I cannot sit by without a response to last week’s letter from Jessica Tenhoff. She states in her letter that we should “Occupy Economic Dev...
