PLEASE SHARE THIS. I will give more details later, but if you see this man (he's a physician) in HOMEWOOD/BIRMINGHAM please call the police. His victims need to be protected and feel safe in their homes... not sure why he was given time to turn himself in as he is a flight risk. #homewood #birmingham #clairmontave
Hello, all! Thank you for the wonderful story on Homewood father-and-son artists, Charles and Chip Ghigna. It was such a fun, life- and family-affirming piece that I've decided to forgive your proofreaders for misspelling the Ghignas' surname every time it was mentioned. 😉 All in all, I greatly enjoy "The Homewood Star" and appreciate its staff's commitment to journalistic excellence. Take care!

Why is Homewood allowing growth on Lakeshore Dr when they can’t even maintain the road as it is right now. Homewood collects plenty of taxes but they can’t manage to maintain any of their streets besides HWY 31.
