  • I hope the residents of Homer give serious thought to the upcoming election. The Homer City Council, the past mayor, the former and present city managers and department of public works have all been aware of the damage to the property in the Baycrest Subdivision by the cutting of trees and the clear...

  • In less than one week Homer voters will be asked to spend $17 million on two public projects that too few young voters are paying attention to.

  • I’m going to try and keep this positive, but I must say that I’m mildly annoyed, and very perplexed, about the lack of support the three people running for Homer City Council have for the Homer Police Department in denying them the opportunity to move out of a cramped and deteriorated building a...

  • I started my first day of work as a police officer for Homer on Dec. 26, 1984. We had seven police officers then, mine was a new position added to the force. We also had one animal control officer, one person working in the jail and four dispatchers....
