  • One of the things I like best about Homer is that friends can disagree and remain friends. A friend of mine wrote last week’s Point of View in support of SB 21, the oil tax give away.

  • Why I am against SB 21 and believe we need to repeal the “giveaway” this August 19th: I am from and therefore of Alaska.

  • With our massive land endowment and bragging rights as the largest state in the nation, it’s easy to lose sight of an important fact — Alaska is a maritime state....

  • A nonpartisan group of Homer people have organized a “March for Alaska” event on Saturday, June 14. Our group is concerned about recent changes to oil taxation in Alaska as enacted by Senate Bill 21. We believe that the former tax structure of ACES provides more fairness to Alaskans....
