Homer Opinion

  • In my opinion the airy comments in last week’s Point of View, advocating for additional city funding to purportedly increase the nonfiction book stock of the Homer Public Library, are absurd. This library currently has hundreds of new nonfiction books lining the “new” book section. Last winter...

  • Disaster experts say it’s not a question of “if,” but “when” another big earthquake like the one of Good Friday 1964 will shake Alaska. That quake, the second largest ever recorded with a 9.2 magnitude, and the seismic sea waves that followed killed 131 people. It reshaped the landscape of...

  • This summer has been a challenge for many Alaskans who rely on a particular link in the Alaska Marine Highway System. The M/V Tustumena has been out of service all summer, causing serious disruptions for residents and small businesses of Seldovia, Kodiak Island and the Aleutian Chain.  The Depa...

  • Last month I came before the Homer City Council to highlight the needs of the Homer Public Library. I prefaced my remarks by acknowledging that the lack of current nonfiction books and the void in the library collection was not this council’s doing. ...

  • My sister-in-law has encouraged me that God will send me ravens through my drought; she wasn’t kidding. I am a humbled woman who has amazing friends and lives in a community whose bond goes deeper than I can describe.  I found comfort with a wise woman as she hugged me and prayed over me as m...

  • Thanks to all the hospital staff (too numerous to name) for being so kind to me and showing me to the next testing room last week when I was in pain.  Hospitals are not my favorite destination and doctors are not my favorite people. There are few doctors who will take care of one problem withou...

  • On June 5, I was medevaced from an accident in Bear Cove to your hospital. I have nothing but high praise for Dr. Sarah Roberts, the ER staff and the nursing staff. I was cared for wonderfully, and my back is making a complete recovery.  Your community should be proud of your hospital and its s...

  • I’m glad Obama is staying firm on health care. We rank 37th in the world.    That’s not no. 1. The Affordable Care Act sounds like an improvement all can afford. It’s taking someone as smart as President Obama to find an inroad so the American people aren’t getting shafted by insur...

  • The Homer Farmers Market organization and board members would like to send a huge thank-you to everyone that has made this market season the biggest and best so far. Gratitude goes to, but is not limited to:  • Entire Homer community — your support is vital. Without you, there is no  m...

  • Our library is booming:  10,000 checkouts most months, and like McDonald’s, thousands served every year.  We do need more current books, however.  An educated citizenry is essential for a working democracy, and as I understand it, Homer is the “city that works.”  We would w...
