Homer Opinion

  • It looks like this is the summer for fantastic Spit runs. At Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic, we plan to celebrate the 20th annual Homer Breast Cancer Run on Aug. 10 with several fun changes. This year we’ll start at Mariner Park at 9 a.m. on a -4.3 tide. Participates will have the option to r...

  • For years I have been putting off taking the harbor tour presented by the Pratt Museum. I finally decided to do it. By far, it was the best decision I made that day. Linda was my tour guide and she knows her stuff. She regaled me with stories about the origins of Homer and the harbor. The Pratt shou...

  • Proposition 1 is a vote on how we will share our oil wealth with the oil corporations. It’s been called the “Second Vote for Statehood,” because the outcome is so important for funding our roads and schools and services.  ...

  • My husband and I have lived just down the street from City Hall for more than 35 years.  A little more than a year ago we purchased a unit at Landings Condominium for our daughter, a single mother with a young child.

  • You can call me naive but I believe that most of the time our judicial system gets it right as evidenced by Judge Huguelet’s recent ruling against the city of Homer concerning condominium assessments. I may be looking through rose-colored glasses, but I think the judge used some good old-fashioned...

  • Judge Huguelet was very clear in his conclusion that the city of Homer’s way of assessing for the natural gas line with regards to condominiums was “arbitrary and unreasonable.” He also ordered the city to correct Ordinance 13-02. Have any of our city council members done their own research in...

  • Just cause the guy’s a greasy thug and you’re scared doesn’t mean you’ve got to grab the tab. You bet Alaska is a tough place to drill for oil — hundreds of miles from a road, with temperatures that turn oil into sludge, where crews are remote and cold. But if you’re an oil executiv...

  • One of the things I like best about Homer is that friends can disagree and remain friends. A friend of mine wrote last week’s Point of View in support of SB 21, the oil tax give away. It read like a BP press release, full of unsupported statistics and misleading facts. He could not be more wrong.&...

  • Ever been a part of a Cosmic Shift? It’s interesting — kind of a tremor in the universe that shakes things up a little and finally settles out with a happy ending but still leaves you with a bit of confusion as to why it all happened....

  • On behalf of the board, staff and volunteers of the Pratt Museum, thank you to the Dave and Mary Schroer and KLEPS Fund, two donor-advised funds of the Homer Foundation, for grants to support the Pratt Museum’s award-winning high school intern program.  This support of the museum and its educ...
