The City of Homer is trying to kick out campers at an unofficial campsite on the Homer Spit. Police are telling people living in a parking lot beside the Seafarer’s Memorial to move to an official campground down the road. One camper is willing to move, but he has one request.

This past Wednesday, January 6th, around 10:30 p.m. someone robbed the Short Stop Tesoro on top of Baycrest Hill at gunpoint. Just after 10 a.m. on December 28th, someone held up Fat Olives Espresso. That’s two armed robberies in Homer in two weeks.
