Opinion: Education teams deserve thanks, but save the hugs

May 19, 2020

I’m here today to express my appreciation and immense gratitude to the educators and all of the support staff at Paul Banks and West Homer Elementary Schools.
In a mere 10 days, these schools completely retooled and redesigned learning for the rest of the school year. What began as a simple needs survey sent out to all school families ballooned into an entire chain of caring that in my opinion, is world class.

Hello, this is Kathy Carssow. I volunteer on the Homer Recall Dunleavy campaign.  In just 3 weeks, over 11 hundred voters on the Southern Kenai Peninsula signed the petition to put the recall question before Alaska voters.  Now Recall Dunleavy has launched “Sign At Home,” a safe and remote way for you to join us in putting Alaska back on track.
