  • Thirty-six years ago, my two daughters were just little gals and I was terrified by the responsibilities of my new single-parent role. Piecing together a life for us in Ninilchik also meant piecing together employment opportunities out of what was available....

  • Originally I was going to call this piece “why I’ve fallen in love with Homer,” but it’s more than that. In my three and a half years of living here, I’ve been up the Kenai Peninsula and as far down the head of the bay as Kachemak Selo. I know I will never be able to see all of the spectac...
