Homer Opinion

  • Alaska salmon runs are increasingly threatened. Loss of habitat, poor management and uncertain food supplies are but a few reasons. Some of these things are within our control.

  • I remember first meeting Kevin Bell when I was 6 years old at the outdoor rink up at the Homer Middle School. It was after my older brother's peewee hockey practice. He introduced himself to me as "Kevin," but I had grown up knowing him as "Coach." He tried convincing my mom to let me play hockey, b...

  • What Gov. Jay Hammond actually wrote may not be exactly what Sen. Peter Micciche remembered at his town meeting last Friday in Homer. The senator said he agreed with Hammond that 66 percent of oil income belonged with government. Of course, with ACES, the escalator clause has raised the state take,...

  • I met Sen. Micciche at the Homer Town Hall meeting on March 8. My comment to him began by saying I was impressed with his Homer News story, Feb. 28, where he met with former Alaska Sen. Vic Fisher and "… ended up having a great history lesson for about 30 minutes." I mentioned that I had seen the...

  • When the power went out, the potential for panic was present in a packed house full of people dressed for the beach and dancing to the bass. Instead, Roar N' Represent began to sing the sweet sounds of Island Style acapella and at once reinstated a happy and respectful environment, that came togethe...

  • One of the things that makes Homer unique is its sense of community. The Big Read sponsored by the Friends of the Homer Public Library was meant to foster that sense of community, to give us all a chance to tell our stories, and to open up conversation. Over the course of six weeks, there were book ...

  • To begin with, thank you, Andrea Van Dinther, for your latest column, "A mother's take on burlesque, friendship," in which you offer your personal moral dilemma about burlesque in Homer. I would especially like to thank you for acknowledging that your column was a personal investigation of what make...

  • One need not look to Washington, D.C., or Juneau for injustice that is forced on people by those in power. We in Homer need to look no further than our city council. Let me explain: We all need fuel to provide the energy needed to live and we basically have three different kinds, namely, electricity...
