Future will be affected by Buccaneer

In my two years as a resident of Homer, it is quite evident that our little town is a 51/49 sort of place. What pleases me is the amount of energy we, as a small community, put in to support efforts we believe are advantageous and to fight against efforts we do not believe are in our best interest.

On Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 6 p.m. at the Bidarka Inn and Thursday, Oct. 25, at 6:30 p.m. at McNeil Canyon School, Buccaneer Energy will be discussing its plans for petroleum extraction on the southern Kenai Peninsula- namely offshore drilling near Anchor Point and onshore drilling out East End Road. If you have strong feelings, have unanswered questions, or are uneducated on these topics, I would strongly encourage everyone to attend these important meetings.

Our environment and economy will both be greatly affected.
