  • Just cause the guy’s a greasy thug and you’re scared doesn’t mean you’ve got to grab the tab. You bet Alaska is a tough place to drill for oil — hundreds of miles from a road, with temperatures that turn oil into sludge, where crews are remote and cold. But if you’re an oil executiv...

  • 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.

  • On solstice Saturday, a few hundred people came together in Ulmer’s parking lot to celebrate the longest day of the year in a new,  very Homeresque way. They raced beds while wearing pajamas and voted for the “awesome-est cosmic rides” as around the venue local nonprofits hosted pillow fi...

  • The Kachemak Bay Campus of Kenai Peninsula College would like to extend its sincerest appreciation and gratitude to the following individuals, agencies and businesses whose generous grants, donations and in-kind support made the 13th annual Kachemak Bay Writers’ Conference possible and such a trem...

  • How utterly discouraging: Our garden has been robbed again. A few weeks back the president of Homer Emblem Club wrote to tell the community that plants had been removed twice from our garden at the top of the hill lookout area, and to ask for  help in keeping an eye out. We did receive several ...

  • Editor’s Note: In conjunction with the monthly “Pay It Forward” column, the Homer News is printing a list of needs provided by some of Homer’s nonprofits. The Kenai Peninsula Fair is looking for old tires to turn into flower beds, volunteer...

  • Who mentored you? It’s a question that I ask new “Big” volunteers when I interview them at Big Brothers Big Sisters.
