  • The Nov. 29 issue of the Homer News' Seawatch column reported on some of the issues the commercial fishing fleet is having with the new NMFS Observer Program. I appreciate Cristy Fry showcasing our concerns. I'd like to clarify that I fully support the development of an Electronic Monitoring System ...

  • Interesting letter last week by young Zoe Story wondering why women feel compelled to respond to media models which require them to reconfigure their bodies into abnormal anorexic toothpicks. I think I can assure her that, with respect to women's body shapes, most men are programmed by nature to pre...

  • I wanted to applaud Ms. Story's well written and insightful article on Dec. 6 drawing attention to the media's portrayal of women. The travesty that a young girl at some point believes the lie that she is somehow less because she doesn't measure up to a popular media propagated image has destructive...

  • Looking at the Fiscal Cliff dilemma from an accounting perspective, raising taxes for the wealthy should actually benefit the economy. Every dollar spent on creating jobs and paying employees is a business expense, and therefore already tax deductible, so the more a business invests in job creation,...

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters would like to thank the Homer Foundation for awarding our program a grant to purchase a new camera and video recorder. These funds have been put to good use documenting our new matches and group activities. The video recorder is not only allowing us to interview our Bigs and...

  • "Dear most honorable citizens dancing on the Wheel of Destiny here in our Cosmic Hamlet by the Sea" -- I would pop right out of my boots to see again the poet who coined that phrase and wrote more than 200 Letters to the Editor in that reliable unique style. Can you believe it, it was almost 13 year...

  • It seems that we, as people, are not as open-minded as we could be. So often we are unwilling to see the other side of things. We are convinced that the way we do something is the only way that works. When someone does something that doesn't fit in our approach, we react to it growling and snapping,...
