Stealing from neighbors not the ‘Alaska way’ Some time ago, there was a good article about Iceland — perhaps you read it also. They face similar issues as we do in Alaska, yet they discuss them openly through social conversations in media, theater and music. That impressed me. For eight years, I fished commercially, and […]

No beach party I was on the first Beach Policy Task Force 14 years ago. As a result, I would like to share the thoughts below: We studied for more than a year and learned that Bishop’s Beach to the right (or west — heading toward Anchor Point) is a traditional road. Therefore, there is […]

At what cost? In response to the Tribune’s article about the Homer City Council considering putting up a gate on Bishop’s Beach: It irks me that a handful of “do-gooders” may result in loss of liberty to others.  I have frequented the Homer beaches for nearly 40 years. I don’t recall ever even once having […]

Grant helps overcome limitations On behalf of the Rotary Club of Homer Downtown, I want to thank Jane Little and the Homer Foundation for the generous grant that allowed our small club to send two students to this year’s Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camp in Wasilla.

Homer invests in its own people Homer has always been a community that prides itself in investing in its children. Its citizens and local businesses provide numerous opportunities to set young people up for success. One of the ways Homer works collectively to do this is by investing in education.
