The Friends of the Homer Library (FHL) has been around for about 35 years. And yet, our relationship to the City and the library is often misunderstood.
The Friends of the Homer Public Library sincerely regrets the loss of one of our board members, Frank Vondersaar. Frank was a man of deeply held political convictions, which he often expressed in letters to this newspaper. But those of us involved with the library saw a softer side. He was a kind and considerate man, always ready to volunteer and help in any way he could.
It’s been a slow and frustrating start for Homer Nordic skiers this year. We’ve only had a couple of snowfalls, and even though the groomers have been doing their best, there’s only so much you can do before 6 inches of snow is compacted to ice. Add a week of balmy weather and a few sprinkles, and you’re almost back to bare ground.
