  • 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.

  • 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...
