  • I wish to share my most sincere gratitude and appreciation to the people of Homer and to Timeless Toys for the donations to the Philippine Red Cross and for their support for the relief efforts of my wife, Berna Brown, and my son, Nathaniel Brown.

  • In response to Holly Delauter’s letter in last week’s Homer News, we are mindful of the old saying “there are two sides to every story.” We remember this event very differently. We do appreciate Ms. Delauter’s efforts on behalf of this stray dog. And yes, the Animal Shelter does need bette...

  • I grew up in a family where a version of Thanksgiving was celebrated almost 365 days a year. Really. Family around the table? It was our tradition to gather for the evening meal — supper, we called it — every weekday evening at 6 p.m. On Sundays, it was right after church. Oh, and on Saturd...
