  • Lord debuts new novel

  • Next week, Homer film buffs will escape reality for an hour or two during the weeklong 14th annual Homer Documentary Festival, but organizer Jamie Sutton has nothing but documentaries on his mind for far longer than a week. The film festival starts at 6:15 p.m. Sept. 21 with a gala opening night showing of “An Incovenient Sequel: Truth to Power.”

  • The 14th annual Homer Burning Basket project of community interactive, impermanent art, is presented to Homer this coming Sunday afternoon at the build site at Mariner Park on the Homer Spit. Construction continues today through Saturday, and volunteers are invited to help finish the basket or provide nightly security.

Best Bets

Even though the Betster toils in the word mines here at the Homer News and has a modest understanding of the news business, apparently journos do things a bit differently Outside. The ways of travel writers are strange, Grasshopper. Inside of six weeks Homer has appeared in two publications.

The Betster wonders how many other Homerites were kept awake the other night by the gale force winds that ripped through town at all hours of the night. PeEking out the window around 1 a.m., one might have thought the alders were fixing to uproot and hightail it out of here.

It’s official.
