  • As we look back on City Manager Walt Wrede’s 12 years of service to our community, I’d like to acknowledge his recent efforts to reduce interpersonal violence in Homer.

  • Captain Zero is no longer Captain Zero — he’s leading the charge into negative numbers. Deep into deficits, record deficits. Palin, his predecessor, charged oil companies royalty rates less than the world average and accumulated a “rainy day” surplus of $11 billion. In the last two years, Pa...

  • Halloween is two weeks away and kids are designing their costumes in anticipation. Last year, the Mountainview/Bayview neighborhood tried something new to streamline traffic and provide a safer space for trick-or-treaters on foot.  Mountainview and East Bayview became “Halloween One-Ways” f...

  • I am disappointed by the site evaluation recently completed by the Public Safety Building Review Committee.  The design team provided them with a draft evaluation form with 31 criteria.

  • I hold a trip to Anchorage in the same esteem as a “pick up poop patrol” in a heavily populated elephant compound.  So, when my wife announced that we had to head to the burg for a mid-week, pre-op referral and outpatient surgery that would encompass a three-day time frame, I sprang into ac...

  • I have a great idea.  Let’s vote for the candidate who clearly states what fits your hopes for a democratic society.

  •  I guess I drive a snowmachine like Mark Begich. I’m terrible at it. I have  always disliked them. Loud, obnoxious machines that drown out the beautiful silence of Alaska. Yet a million years ago I drove a dog team 1,100 miles in the Iditarod and didn’t feel like I have to dis people w...
