Homer’s most iconic bar, the Salty Dawg Saloon, was broken into over the weekend. Manager Cecilia Rockett said two men broke into the bar sometime after it closed early Sunday morning. Rockett said calls of support have been pouring in all day.
“Everybody that works there, we’re all incredibly overwhelmed because we’ve all worked there for a number of years and it’s kind of basically our second home,” Rockett said. “It’s hit us pretty hard in the gut. For me personally, I basically shut my phone off for a while today, go for a walk and clear my head a little bit.”
