Point of View

  • As a card-carrying conservative who might well have taken pleasure in last week’s Homer News editorial casting a less than favorable eye on the health insurance package of city employees, I find that I do not. In fact, I see both a lack of appreciation for the pay scale of city employees and an un...

  • It’s been a slow and frustrating start for Homer Nordic skiers this year. We’ve only had a couple of snowfalls, and even though the groomers have been doing their best, there’s only so much you can do before 6 inches of snow is compacted to ice. Add a week of balmy weather and a few sprinkles,...

  • As a long-time Alaskan who has lived in Alaska since 1969, I will not be silenced by House Bill 77.  I firmly believe in the responsibility of citizens to engage in governmental decisions because we are part of the checks and balances on government.  HB 77 is a corporate giveaway of citize...

  • In recent years we have seen a troubling pattern of near record low returns of both early and late run Kenai River chinook salmon. We believe the declines in statewide chinook fisheries are largely due to marine survival issues, however, we also feel that part of our Kenai River decline can be linke...

  • I would first like to thank Sen. Peter Micciche for scheduling hearings in Soldotna and Homer, Dec. 9 and 10, on the controversial House Bill 77, especially after the Department of Natural Resources canceled its own hearings, in what many see as a deliberate attempt to keep the public in the dark an...

  • I wanted to bounce a few ideas off of you all regarding House Bill 77. Seems to me it is another attempt by the wrecking crew down there in Juneau to take away some of our 1959 Alaska state constitutional rights. Article 8 of the Alaska Constitution states that all citizens are guaranteed fish and w...

  • Gov. Sean Parnell’s decision not to expand Medicaid and not accept millions of federal dollars to pay for it is short sighted. ...

  • Homer has played an important role in Alaska’s environmental history because we have long believed that we can “think globally while acting locally.” Indeed as the world gets still smaller, we realize that most of what we learned about ourselves and the world was learned in the last decade. Ne...

  • With Thanksgiving just around the corner my thoughts turn to community and the meaning of it. Maybe it’s because I find myself feeling sentimental, having given birth to and raised my two daughters right here in Homer. ...

  • Those of us born before the Kennedy administration do not consider 50 years monumental. The half-century between 1963 and 2013 seems to have passed in the blink of an eye. We half-centurions remember favorite songs like “Surfin’ USA,” “Blue Velvet,” “Puff, the Magic Dragon” and “Days...
