20 years ago in the Homer News

The Board of Fish tabled two proposals that would have affected Homer sport fisheries. One proposal would have put a moratorium on the number of sport halibut charters. Another proposal would have put a two-fish bag limit on winter king salmon. The board sent the proposals to a task force.

Homer halibut charter operators had proposed the moratorium in response to a North Pacific Management Council cap of 3.5 million pounds for sport-caught halibut in the Central Gulf of Alaska region.

Homer Police charged a 37-year-old Sterling man with fourth-degree criminal mischief. Police said the man defaced an art mural in front of Proctor’s Grocery (now NOMAR) on Veterans Day.

The man wrote “T.D.C. ‘63 V.N” to honor a friend for Veterans Day. Damage to the wall was about $50. The mural created by Tom Reed shows silhouettes of local performing artists.
