As a fund raiser for the Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic, 15 Homer men posed nearly naked in a calendar, The Sexy Men of East End Road. Board member Diana Carbonelli said she got the idea from a British fund raising calendar. Homer Brewing Company held a release party for the calendar and with Two Sisters Cafe was one of the vendors selling the calendar.

Homer Police Lt. Dennis Oakland said police have noticed a pattern in stolen vehciles: Cars parked at one part of town go missing, only to turn up at another part of town a short time later. Oakland said he thought some thefts might be people who needed a ride from one bar to another.

The week before thieves stole a Plymouth hatchback from the Kachemak Bowl parking lot found on the Spit, a Ford Bronco missing from the Spit found at City Hall, and a Ford pickup truck stolen from a Fairview Avenue home found on the Spit.
