Face masks cripple kids psychologically

We are crippling our kids on a psychological level by covering up half their faces while they are at school. Physically, they must breathe in and out in a constricted way, and talk in a muffled way.

Protect your child from this abuse, I say. Find alternative schooling.

Thanks for the Gary Thomas Memorial Bench

We would like to thank the Homer-Kachemak Bay Rotary Club and the City of Homer Parks and Recreation for the installation of the Gary Thomas Memorial Bench at WKFL park. It will be a lasting tribute to his community service work. We are deeply honored and grateful for this memorial for our beloved Gary.

Laura Patty and the Gary Thomas Family
