  • “There is no respect in which inhabitants of a low-income neighborhood are so disadvantaged as in the kind of schooling they can get for their children.”  — Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman  ...

  • Middle school is no picnic. Between a larger school, harder classes, puberty and peer pressure, I’m amazed I survived. When I think back on it now, I realize one of the things that helped me stay afloat was my band teacher, Mr. Peterson. ...

  • I have spent the better part of my Alaskan winters trying to outsmart ice. Ice has become my personal obsession. I can’t tell you how many sleepless nights I’ve spent trying to figure out how to keep ice from creeping, seeping and expanding into places I don’t want it to go. After a lifet...

  • Ever since I survived a heart attack in December of 2011, I’ve been saying I’m grateful to be alive. But in the nearly two years since that time, that statement has lost its force. So it’s time to reconsider, to think about it more deeply....

  • 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.

  • 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...
