  • Some say that memories from youth (are) the brightest one. I spent the summer of 1995 in Homer. Now I’m 40, happily married with two boys and I believe that everything in my life has gone so well. But yesterday I suddenly stumbled over one image from Google Earth: Misty Skyline Drive.

  • It is difficult to write without some degree of sarcasm regarding the  Planning Commission’s recent decision to decline the Smallpond application for a conditional use permit on Noview.
