Our friends at Occupy Wall Street are misguided at best. They seem to think that the problem with this country is corporate greed, so they text, tweet,or email on their corporation produced cell phone to assemble and protest in the park, street corner, or wherever they feel they can have the most im...

Just sitting at the Puter and thinking again. In early 1951 a group of my friends and myself receive a letter requesting us to meet and go for a physical examination for the draft. Amazingly all of us country farm boys qualified to serve in the military. What do you think the ratio is today? Maybe 5...

Thank you to Charlie's Pizza. This is the second year Steve and Jennifer Chamberlain (also Charlie and Everett) of Nikiski delivered hot turkey dinners to those who needed or wanted them. They are greatly appreciated for their kindness and taking time from their Holiday to care about others....

With all of the gridlock in our Federal Congress, I wish someone would come up with an amendment to our Constitution to block all members of Congress from running for re-election if the Federal Budget is not in balance and the deficit isn't reduced by 5 percent.

Our Homer and Kachemak Firefighters are our community heros and warriors. Everytime they go out on a call they lay their lives on the line as they did Sunday, Nov. 13. I have to believe it was the hand of God that kept them safe from the fire and resulting explosion of my fuel tank. With the enginee...

Governor Parnell's appointment of Corey Rossi as director of Alaska's Division of Wildlife Conservation (destruction) was a slap in the face to all Alaskans who believe that maintaining the integrity of our natural systems, should be the primary imperative of policy-makers and managers. Now, Parnell...

Just wanted to give a shout out to all the dedicated public safety professionals in our community. In the past  week I have witnessed 3 accidents. In the blowing wind and freezing weather these brave men and women were doing their jobs to provide comfort and care in awful circumstances. I sleep...

In a recent edition of the Clarion (Nov. 18), Norm Olson wrote, "It's about time that the slaves stand up to the federal government and start acting like free men!" In his letter, he likens residents of Alaska to slaves of the federal government. In theory, I don't disagree with Mr. Olson's perspect...

Issues faced by poor and homeless children are a major concern all over the U.S.  In spending a few winters near Phoenix, Ariz., they had a school for over 400 homeless children where they did not have to be subjected to the ridicule of children of means. In having a conversation with an old Io...
