Subject: Bullets for the Governor for Tuesday's meetings with the companies

Governor Palin, Lt. Governor Parnell, Mike, I thought it might be useful to provide some brief background information on the companies we are meeting this week. I am attaching bullets for Tuesday's meetings and I'll send out the Wednesday bullets tomorrow around noon. The bullets are segregated by company and include a couple of questions the Governor may like to ask them. These questions are not highly charged, but the answers may prove helpful. Marty

Governor, Mike, FYI. DNR just learned that earlier today the federal Corp of Engineers

"pulled" their recently issued (late Summer 20 06) 4 04 Wetlands Fill Permit from the Rock Creek Mine. Rock Creek Mine is located near Nome

(with two pit locations) and is a midsize open pit gold mine. It is similar in size to the True North and Illinois Creek gold mines. Creek is owned by Alaska Gold which is now a subsidiary company of NovaGold, which is a Canadian mining company. Gold within the past few years. NovaGold purchased Alaska Rock

At this juncture the project was just beginning

to be constructed and I am unaware of the size of the current workforce.

I am advised that a recently organized environmental group sued the federal Corp of Engineers on the 404 permit because a full EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) was not completed. Instead they did an

EA (Environmental Assessment), which is typically done for a project of this size. The full EIS process adds years and millions of dollars of

cost to a project, and in this instance would probably have killed the economics of the mine. The environmental organization was asking the

courts for an injunction but the courts never ruled on the question as the Corp took an administrative action to pull the permit. project is now stalled. Thus the

I wanted you to have some baseline information on this Corp of Engineers action in case you are asked. It is also possible you will be asked if

Governor Palin,
Frank Bailey advises that a gentleman named Frank Avezac of AK Interstate Gas is asking how decisions were made as to who would be invited to the initial gas pipeline project meetings that occurred on the 5th and 6th. Mr. Avezac advises that his company's goal is to provide gas to Valdez and SE Alaska. The Lt. Governor relayed that the original meeting invitees were those who were active in the early Stranded Gas Development Act discussions (producers, TC MA, ANGDA, Port Authority and Enbridge). Everyone else that eventually participated heard from your campaign statements that you would be holding the meetings and asked to be included. No one was turned down. Sean suggested that I contact Mr. Avezac to determine if his company wishes to present their ideas on commercializing ANS gas.

Subject: Re: FW: McNeil story add

Thanks Meg. The Game Board will be addressing the issue, evidently. I am a hunter. I grew up hunting - some of my best memories growing up are of hunting with my dad to help feel our freezer... I want Alaskans to have access to wildlife... BUT - he's asking if I support hunting the bears in the sanctuary? No, I don't... I don't know any Alaskans who do support hunting the McNeil bears that frequent the viewing area. Many Alaskan and Outside visitors view these animals on the McNeil river, within the sanctuary, and, as my parents have reported back after their viewing trip, it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see such beauty on that river. Alaska is a huge state. There are many, many areas that should be supported for access to wildlife resources... who's pushing for the hunt at McNeil? (I don't know who's pushing the issue unless it's a few guides who take Outside hunters who pay thousands and thousands of dollars to hunt near the area because it may be an easy hunt.) We need to find out what exactly the proposal is that is (or will be) in front of the Game Board, as the issue comes across sounding like it's "do you support killing bears in the sanctuary or not?", but there usually is more to the issue than a strong opponent (like Bill S.) leads one to believe. Knowing what I know of the issue thus far -1 don't support hunting the bears that frequent the viewing area/sanctuary. Meghan Stapleton Governor, They are truly pains as you will see in the passing notes below. You and I have spoken a couple of times about this - perhaps you could add insight to a few questions surrounding McNeil bears - do you support hunting in the area? Would you support hunting in the refuge itself? As soon as you can - this one is nasty. Thanks, meghan <meghan_stapleton@gov.state.ak.us> wrote:

Few Residents Rattled by Use of Herbicides Along Railroad
FAIRBANKS, AK -- North Pole and Fairbanks residents expressed only mild concern about proposal to use herbicides along the state's rail system during a public hearing Thursday in Fairbanks. About 20 people attended the hearing and only a handful gave public comments, many of which came in the form of questions. Most of those who spoke lived near the tracks and were generally accepting of the Alaska Railroad Corp. proposal but concerned about how they would be notified of the spraying. About 10 people attended a hearing Wednesday in Nenana, according to a Department of Environmental Conservation representative. In Fairbanks, Ron Therriault said he grows hay and rents land to a bee-keeper on acreage he owns along the stateowned railroad in the North Pole area. He said he wasn't opposed to the proposal but wanted to be sure he would know ahead of time when herbicides would be used. "I would like the railroad to specifically ask and notify the property owners," he said. Therriault said he also wanted assurance that the chemicals would not be harmful to bees. A number of North Pole residents, including Therriault, mentioned a dispute with the railroad over ownership of the land under the tracks. Rose Rybachek and Bonne Woldstad both asked that they be notified before any spraying on what they said was land they owned. Woldstad said she'd like the railroad to ask permission. Rybachek's husband, Stan, said they owned about 1,000 feet of land along the tracks and had a garden with rhubarb and vegetables that came within 30 feet of them. "I sure would hate to have it sprayed," he said. He also said he'd like to be notified when the spraying was happening. Representatives from the railroad and the company that would do the spraying said they would go beyond the demands of a permit to accommodate the wishes of residents' and tried to allay concerns about any environmental impacts. Ernie Piper, who oversees environmental issues for the railroad, said the railroad intended to use notices in the areas where it sprays and could spend extra time with Therriault because of his commercial interest. He said he didn't want to commit to notifying everyone every time they sprayed because he wasn't sure it was possible. Wayne Hug of The DeAngelo Brothers Inc., the company that would apply the herbicides, said the chemicals would be applied to only an eight-foot-wide area along the tracks and should not impact hay or bees. "None of those products that we're using are toxic to bees," he said.

Other questions related to the environmental impacts of the chemicals and the duration of the permit the railroad needs from the Department of Environmental Conservation. Lance Smith of Fairbanks asked whether potential impacts to groundwater would be monitored and how long the permit would last. Kim Stricklan of the DEC said her agency often puts stipulations on the permits it issues and has in the past requested monitoring plans. "It's something that we really look at hard," she said. She said permits to use herbicides last one year and can be extended once for one year. Testimony in Nenana focused on how to protect subsistence resources and the environmental impacts of the chemicals when used together, according to Stricklan. The DEC will consider both of the issues in determining whether or not to grant a permit, she said. On Thursday, Piper gave a brief presentation outlining the need for herbicides. He said safety issues were the main reason the herbicides were needed. Weeds have led to poor drainage and track degradation, increasing the risk of accidents. According to Piper, mechanical methods of controlling weeds have not been sufficient in controlling the weeds. "We cannot afford to have less than the best track conditions," Piper said. The railroad is proposing to use glyphosate, 2,4-D, and Oust Extra along its 600 miles of track. More information about the proposal can be found at www.akrr.com under "Information" and comments can be submitted to the DEC through Augl4. - Stefan Milkowski, The Fairbanks News-Miner

Few Residents Rattled by Use of Herbicides Along Railroad
FAIRBANKS, AK — North Pole and Fairbanks residents expressed only mild concern about proposal to use herbicides along the state's rail system during a public hearing Thursday in Fairbanks. About 20 people attended the hearing and only a handful gave public comments, many of which came in the form of questions. Most of those who spoke lived near the tracks and were generally accepting of the Alaska Railroad Corp. proposal but concerned about how they would be notified of the spraying. About 10 people attended a hearing Wednesday in Nenana, according to a Department of Environmental Conservation representative. In Fairbanks, Ron Therriault said he grows hay and rents land to a bee-keeper on acreage he owns along the stateowned railroad in the North Pole area. He said he wasn't opposed to the proposal but wanted to be sure he would know ahead of time when herbicides would be used. "I would like the railroad to specifically ask and notify the property owners," he said. Therriault said he also wanted assurance that the chemicals would not be harmful to bees. A number of North Pole residents, including Therriault, mentioned a dispute with the railroad over ownership of the land under the tracks. Rose Rybachek and Bonne Woldstad both asked that they be notified before any spraying on what they said was land they owned. Woldstad said she'd like the railroad to ask permission. Rybachek's husband, Stan, said they owned about 1,000 feet of land along the tracks and had a garden with rhubarb and vegetables that came within 30 feet of them. "I sure would hate to have it sprayed," he said. He also said he'd like to be notified when the spraying was happening. Representatives from the railroad and the company that would do the spraying said they would go beyond the demands of a permit to accommodate the wishes of residents' and tried to allay concerns about any environmental impacts. Ernie Piper, who oversees environmental issues for the railroad, said the railroad intended to use notices in the areas where it sprays and could spend extra time with Therriault because of his commercial interest. He said he didn't want to commit to notifying everyone every time they sprayed because he wasn't sure it was possible. Wayne Hug of The DeAngelo Brothers Inc., the company that would apply the herbicides, said the chemicals would be applied to only an eight-foot-wide area along the tracks and should not impact hay or bees. "None of those products that we're using are toxic to bees," he said.

The presentation hit on a wide range of topics related to the authority's proposed project. One of the main points was that North Slope gas should be used as soon as possible to benefit Alaskans in whatever ways possible through construction of a pipeline, cheap gas for Alaskans and increased state revenue. a€oeIt's Alaska's gas and it should be used for Alaskans' benefit,a€L' Valdez mayor Bert Cottle said. But as the event wore on, participants also used the forum to speak out against big oil and the Murkowski administration for their inability to get any kind of project off the ground. a€osAt what point do Alaskans say, a€~enough is enough?'S€G asked Cottle. a€cel think that point is now.a€D Rep. Carl Gatto, R-Palmer, attended the meeting and said he believes much of the blame for the stalled pipeline discussions should go to one company. a€oeThe biggest stumbling block is Exxon,a€"J Gatto said. &€oeThey do not want to move the gas.aCG Gatto expressed anger with the oil giant both for its reluctance to move North Slope natural gas and the company's failure to pay settlements from the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill. a€ceThey know that if you can hire more attorneys, you can go on for a generation,a€D he said. a€csDealing with Exxon has been a serious problem.a€G The Murkowski administration was unable to secure a contract with the North Slope oil and gas companies to bring the state's enormous gas reserves to market. Many in attendance at Sunday's forum said the oil companies have no right to sit on gas that belongs to the state, and pressure should be brought to bear on them. a€oeIf you had a house with a tenant that didn't pay rent for 20 years, would you let them keep living there?a€'J Reeves asked. a€oeExxon owes us money.a€D Reeves said he believes Gov. Sarah Palin's new administration will be more supportive of the port authority's project, as well as less beholden than Murkowski to the interests of oil companies. a€oeThey've owned a lot of our legislators. They've owned our governor. But they don't own our governor now. They don't own this guy here,a€Q he said, pointing to Gatto. The port authority is comprised of representatives from the municipal governments of Valdez, Fairbanks and the North Slope. Its goal is to build a pipeline from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez, with a spur line to supply Southcentral Alaska's gas needs. The plan, supporters say, would share revenue from the line between the state and municipalities across Alaska. Beyond that, however, port authority representatives said they would be perfectly happy if someone else -

including the oil companies - built the pipeline. The point, they stressed, is that some kind of pipeline project needs to get done sooner rather than later. a€ceEither we'll build it or somebody else will build it,a€D Cottle said. The Valdez mayor said port authority representatives will continue holding public forums across the state as a way to drum up support for the project and keep pressure on the oil companies. a€ce We're not going away,d€D he said.

To close the loop, I spoke with Ayers tonight and just provided her with our update from today. Essentially, the following paragraph is what I said: The governor's goal has always been to introduce a gasline bill on day one of the session, but we want to get it right with a good product. The gasline team is recommending that the bill be delayed to continue to work through the vetting process with the experts. That's where it is now. We have the bill with the concepts and the details, but it is going through the experts' hands right now. We don't want to introduce a bill just to introduce a bill and meet a goal. Delaying the bill's introduction gives experts the chance to weigh-in and ensures that the best product goes before the Legislature. She amended a line of the story that instead of stating that a bill will be introduced in the first week of the session, she wrote that a bill will be introduced in the first weeks of the session, I forwarded this paragraph from the weekend and she was going to draw upon it to further define the law of general application. The governor has long stated that the obsolete Stranded Gas Development Act was the improper legal vehicle for negotiating a viable and profitable contract. Therefore, the governor's gas cabinet is working around the clock to draft a bill seeking a law of general application. When passed, this law will bring transparency to a competitive process, will jumpstart construction with valuable incentives, and will maximize the return on a gasline for both the state and the project proponent. The Palin Administration will be introducing this bill in the upcoming legislative session as soon as the bill has been vetted through experts. As to the Port Authority Board and ANGDA sharing information, I applaud any efforts by any potential applicants to join forces, including the three primary North Slope producers, in whatever manner they deem appropriate to eventually submit the most attractive and beneficial proposal for the Administration's consideration under the new law.

do realize this is an important project for the future, .and there are many benchmarks in the process I also spoke today with Rep Mike Hawker and Rep Craig Johnson. Rep Johnson is chair of H-Resources (along with Rep Carl Gatto). Johnson said that he wanted to have initial hearings that talk about the energy market in the United States as a way of illustrating that it is important for Alaska to move quickly to meet market demand. I told Rep Johnson we would contact him and Rep Gatto very soon about outlining a schedule. I don't see anything in the below statement inconsistent with my comments...but my fingers are crossed. So far, all legislative contacts have been positive in regard to working with us on the natural gas issues. There will, no doubt, be some tough questions...but everyone is emphasizing that 1) they want to work with us, and 2) they do not intend to initially "put us on the spot."

Gas line meeting draws crowd
Jan. 9, 2007 By MATT TUNSETH Frontiersman WASILLA - Supporters of an all-Alaska natural gas pipeline came out swinging Sunday afternoon during a presentation by the Alaska Gasline Port Authority. "We've gone 12 rounds in an 18 round fight and we're the only ones still standing," moderator John Reeves said as the presentation began. The presentation hit on a wide range of topics related to the authority's proposed project. One of the main points was that North Slope gas should be used as soon as possible to benefit Alaskans in whatever ways possible - through construction of a pipeline, cheap gas for Alaskans and increased state revenue. "It's Alaska's gas and it should be used for Alaskans' benefit," Valdez mayor Bert Cottle said. But as the event wore on, participants also used the forum to speak out against big oil and the Murkowski administration for their inability to get any kind of project off the ground. "At what point do Alaskans say, 'enough is enough?"' asked Cottle. "I think that point is now." Rep. Carl Gatto, R-Palmer, attended the meeting and said he believes much of the blame for the stalled pipeline discussions should go to one company. "The biggest stumbling block is Exxon," Gatto said. "They do not want to move the gas." Gatto expressed anger with the oil giant both for its reluctance to move North Slope natural gas and the company's failure to pay settlements from the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill. "They know that if you can hire more attorneys, you can go on for a generation," he said. "Dealing with Exxon has be a serious problem." The Murkowski administration was unable to secure a contract with the North Slope oil and gas companies to bring th state's enormous gas reserves to market. Many in attendance at Sunday's forum said the oil companies have no right to sit on gas that belongs to the state, and pressure should be brought to bear on them. "If you had a house with a tenant that didn't pay rent for 20 years, would you let them keep living there?" Reeves aske "Exxon owes us money." Reeves said he believes Gov. Sarah Palin's new administration will be more supportive of the port authority's project,; well as less beholden than Murkowski to the interests of oil companies. "They've owned a lot of our legislators. They've owned our governor, But they don't own our governor now. They dor own this guy here," he said, pointing to Gatto. The port authority is comprised of representatives from the municipal governments of Valdez, Fairbanks and the Nortl Slope. Its goal is to build a pipeline from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez, with a spur line to supply Southcentral Alaska's gas needs. The plan, supporters say, would share revenue from the line between the state and municipalities across Alaska. Beyond that, however, port authority representatives said they would be perfectly happy if someone else - including th oil companies - built the pipeline. The point, they stressed, is that some kind of pipeline project needs to get done soor rather than later.

"Either we'll build it or somebody else will build it," Cottle said. The Valdez mayor said port authority representatives will continue holding public forums across the state as a way to drum up support for the project and keep pressure on the oil companies. "We're not going away," he said. Contact Matt Tunseth at 352-2265 or matt.tunseth@ frontiersman.com.

We are calling many right now to give a heads-up. I think an invitation is too formal as I am telling reporters this will be a very informal sit around the table and talk gasline and receive an advance on gasline state of the state. No cameras. Embargoed discussion. In one sense don't know that we can expect it to be "off the record" as they will be using elements to discuss the next day - embargoed is probably the important word. We have been discussing teleconference availability though I am now leaning against it as we cannot control if someone is recording somewhere else. Especially since every major outlet in the state is covered with the above attendees.

I am comfortable in saying that if we were given the job of disposing of the aircraft we could find an end-user to pay $2.15MM to possibly $2.25MM. If we had some time I would offer it out at $2.35MM as an asking price and see how close we came. An alternate consideration would be entertaining a different type of Jet or Turboprop in on trade if you feel the State has a need. There are cheaper Jets by far!

Lieutenant Governor's Report
By Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell January 11,2007
WELCOME! Welcome to the first edition of my Lieutenant Governor Report. I encourage you to take a look at my website, where the report is also accessible with additional links to photos and available articles. This report is intended to keep Alaskans informed of the Palin/Parnell Administration's progress and efforts. Each report will include highlights on state and community events, as well as citizen or other human interest spotlights. At the end of this report, I ask readers to contribute pictures and citizen nominations, so please keep your cameras ready to capture Alaska's beauty and your eyes and ears open to honor those in your community. BUILDING AN ADMINISTRATION The transition process was a bit of a whirlwind as Governor Palin and I began meetings with prospective gas pipeline project sponsors the first two days after being sworn in. Afterward, things calmed down somewhat, though I still faced the bittersweet and

11/10/2009
PRA_GSP01_0000063

slightly daunting task of transitioning out of my law firm. After our victory in the general election, Governor Palin put in place a transition team to compile information on the former administration's management of state government and to identify issues that lie ahead. The governor appointed me to lead her budget transition team, and with the help of experienced budget people such as Ted Leonard, Mark Hanley, Kip Knudsen, John Bitney, and the staff at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), we helped the Governor achieve her initial goal of proposing a balanced budget on December 15th. As the transitions teams helped us gain deeper insight into what shape our State is in, Governor Palin began building her team of capable, ethical commissioners. It has been an honor every step of the way to fight and serve alongside Governor Palin, and I look forward to even more teamwork in the future as I serve as her Lieutenant. GAS PIPELINE MEETINGS The Governor and I, along with Acting Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Marty Rutherford, met with 12 different groups on December 5th and 6th, our first days in office, to discuss moving forward on a gas pipeline. The attendees included: Alaska Gasline Port Authority - Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority - BG Group - BP Alaska - Chevron - ConocoPhillips - Enbridge - ExxonMobil - MidAmerican Energy Holdings Company - SEMCO - Shell Oil - TransCanada. Many interesting ideas were suggested, and the Governor and I look forward to receiving proposals from interested companies. The Governor named Acting Commissioner Marty Rutherford (DNR) as her team lead on gas pipeline issues. I anticipate Acting Commissioner Rutherford and her team will complete an assessment of the funds and resources available to the state to evaluate any proposals that might come. Additionally, the team is developing legislation for this upcoming session to move a gas pipeline nearer to reality. Finally, with President Bush's appointment of former Alaska State Senator Drue Pearce as the Federal Pipeline Coordinator, we look forward to working more closely with the federal government in advancing a gas pipeline in Alaska's interests. 172nd STRYKER BRIGADE RE-DEPLOYMENT AND RE-FLAGGING CEREMONIES Alaska's celebrated 172nd Strvker Brigade returned home in early December, and I was honored to attend their Re-deployment ceremony with Governor Palin and the Re-flagging ceremony two days later. While in Iraq, the 172nd Stryker Brigade earned worldwide respect for bravery and steadfastness in battle. The Stryker Brigade's commitment to freedom was proven repeatedly, and it was extremely gratifying to see them rewarded after long and dangerous hours across 16 months defending liberty and human rights. C 84th ENGINEER COMPANY RE-DEPLOYMENT Later on in December I spoke at the re-deployment of the C 84th Engineer Company. These Army Engineers are some of our bravest, unsung heroes of this war so far. They worked doggedly to ensure the safety of their fellow troops in Iraq. Whether building structures in Baghdad or setting records as they performed dangerous, back-breaking road construction on main and alternate travel routes (in the dead of night with bright spotlights illuminating them as they worked—making them vulnerable), these men and women diligently served our country and made all Alaskans proud.

PRAYER AND REMEMBRANCE SERVICE On January 3rd, I attended the Prayer and Remembrance Service for Fort Richardson soldiers SGT Brennan C. Gibson. SPC Phillip C. Ford, and SPC Shawn M. Murphy. It was with a heavy, but grateful, heart that I listened to the stories of their lives and courageous service. All three soldiers left widows and, in some cases, children behind. These men and their families paid the ultimate price for freedom, and words cannot express the depth of my sorrow and gratitude. We are honored to have our state and country represented by men and families such as these. ANCHORAGE POLICE DEPARTMENT GRADUATION As a young boy, I looked up to my uncle, who was a police officer. I learned a lot about sacrificial public service from him. Since then, I have greatly respected and esteemed police officers, and it was an honor to speak to the newest graduating class from Anchorage Police Department Academy 06-2. These men and women committed to serving our city, enforcing laws, and working hard to provide safe homes, parks, and schools for us and our families. For willingly seeking out and training hard to receive a challenging and often thankless job, I thank them now. We need and appreciate your hard work and sacrifice. Welcome to the ranks of Anchorage's Finest! STAFF SPOTLIGHT Chief of Staff, Jim Merriner Jim Merriner, a lifelong Alaskan, has worked as a commercial fisherman in Bristol Bay for 21 years.

Governor 1. Stanton Katchatag: I went to the memorial service for Stanton Katchatag yesterday, a Unalakleet elder, AFN Elder of the Year, and husband of Irene for 69 years. Most touching was Irene (the widow) singing "How Great Thou Art" in Inupiaq and when she finished Irene proclaimed with conviction, "God is great!" 2.

Subject: Update/report Yesterday's meeting with Drue went very well. First, she described for us what she has been up to since being sworn in and what she is likely to be doing in the near term as it relates to the project. Then, Marty outlined what we are thinking and why...namely, that the SGDA failed the State and is unlikely to be a successful vehicle to advance the project. Given the principles outlined by the Governor, we have been hard at work crafting a bill to create a new mechanism to advance the project in a way that will protect our interests and begin to make the project "real". She seemed receptive and positive and wanted to know how she could help. It was a perfect transition into a discussion about the use of the federal loan guarantees and the role of FERC. Her responses and recommendations were very encouraging and she has made herself available to help in any way that she can. We can get into the details of what she thinks we need to do at a later point in time, but it will require some significant outreach efforts in DC. However, she remains convinced that everyone (our delegation, the White House, and the new Congress) want to know what they can do to help. It seems the previous administration did not want or seek any assistance in dealing with the commercial parties. I am in meetings most of the day, but can step out at most any time to discuss further over the phone. Otherwise, I'll be in the office this weekend. Joe

With ADN's circulation of 80,000+ they thought the 30,000 tickets could be easily achieved and the potential for more money raised.

Hi Gov. Palin I see that Roger Sampson was reappointed to EED. I know that Homeschoolers, especially those in state wide correspondence programs, were disappointed to hear this. I think many interpreted your new vision as including a new commissioner. I talked with Comm. Sampson last spring and we had a good visit but I did get the impression from him that he does not have a high opinion of Homeschoolers in general. I hope that we will be able to have some positive changes to the regs that were implemented under FM/Comm. Sampson. Is there any hope of this happening? I know there were concerns about a few individuals taking advantage of the system. I share those concerns and would like to work with you and the Commissioner to see if there are some less punitive ways to correct the problems that spurred these changes. Thank you for taking time to read my comments. Debbie Joslin

Thirdly, I spent this morning with permitting and exploration representatives from Shell, Anadarko, ConocoPhillips and Chevron regarding their interest in the OCS, focusing upon the OCS Lease Sale 193 in the Chukchi Sea. The companies want to ensure your administration understands how very important this lease sale is to their companies investment in Alaska and to filling the oil production gap as well as to the gas pipeline. They advised that they know of 7 companies who have conveyed to the Mineral Management Service (MMS) their desire to participate in the November or December 2007 lease sale, and their belief that significant Alaskan investment and exploration will result from it if the OCS leasing area includes the maximum amount of prospective acreage. I too am very excited about the level of interest being shown by the industry in the OCS lease sales, particularly with Shell's very significant investment this year in the Beaufort Sea. I believe Shells heavy return into Alaska changes the entire oil and gas dynamic, since they are currently an "explorer" company in Alaska, with all the same access needs as an Anadarko, only on steroids! Finally, I want to ensure you are receiving everything you need on the Gas Pipeline legislation for your State of the State address and the surrounding press discussions. I've been monitoring the information exchange between Meghan and Bruce and it appears that is proceeding well. Pat Galvin and Lt. Governor Parnell had agreed to draft the gasline briefing paper to support your conversation with Vice President Cheney and I was just on the phone with Pat asking if he and Sean had sent it on to you. Pat was having trouble catching up with the Lt. Governor but will get back to me with a status report. If you are feeling uneasy at any time over this weekend, please just give me a call and we'll get you something additional, I look forward to seeing you in Juneau this coming week. Marty

Dear Sarah: Both times that I ran for Governor, I described the Office of Childrens' Services (OCS) as a rogue agency that was out of control and destroying families. I have been dealing with that agency on behalf of parents for over 30 years and can give you a long list of outrageous actions that the agency has undertaken. When I ran I said I would hire a retired Colonel of General to put in that office and the first capital expenditure for my Commissioner would be the purchase of a shovel and a broom. I've now come across another horror story involving a family in the Valley and I've met with the mother. She is an impressive lady. She and her husband, married 26 years, had 2 children of their own and adopted 5. In Jan 05 one of the children told somebody that her mom had pinched her. The mother was arrested without a warrant and charged with assault and OCS picked up the children. The charges against the mother were, of course, eventually dropped but she and her husband have been unable to get most of the children back in almost two years! In the meantime, one child who was placed outside because of emotional issues caused by seeing her mom arrested, has been physically abused in OCS placement. I could go on and on. This family has an excellent claim against the State. Unfortunately, since I have the responsibility of making payroll for the people in my office, I do not have the resources to assist her in litigation (although I sure would like to). I told this lady that I would contact you and see if you could give her 20 minutes or a half hour of your very valuable time. I think she could give you a lot of information about what happened to her family and what is happening to others who fall into this agency's clutches. The mom's name is Privileged or Persoi

Palin needs to check information before making bold decisions Since Gov. Sarah Palin's inauguration, Alaskans have been enjoying many of the qualities she promised, from transparency to objective decisions made in the best interest of the people. Therefore, like many other Alaskans, I was sadly disappointed to read Gov. Palin's letter urging Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne to not list the polar bear as threatened. The governor's letter had several clear factual errors such as the statement: "there is no scientific evidence ... that these polar bear populations are declining." Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey and the World Conservation Union have determined that five polar bear populations are declining, including the Hudson Bay population, which has decreased by 22 percent in 17 years. Gov. Palin also stated that "there are no discrete human activities that can be regulated" to alter the impacts of global warming on the polar bear and its melting habitat. To the contrary, there is overwhelming scientific consensus that reducing greenhouse gas emissions through discrete actions will mitigate the most dire of consequences. Although Gov. Palin's letter was disappointing, I believe that her comments were a direct result of bad information. Once she is armed with scientifically valid global warming data, I feel strongly that she will be a leader in the fight against global warming, a fight that is in the best interest of Alaskans, the economy and the great white bear. — Mary E.

Van Meurs letter reveals misgivings about pipeline contract
Documents released by the office of Gov. Sarah Palin reveal that the Murkowski administration's lead consultant on gas pipeline contract negotiations had serious concerns about the contract Murkowski's team negotiated. Pedro van Meurs, the $3,000-a-day consulting economist who became the administration's prime explicator and cheerleader for the contract, wrote a February 1, 2006 memo outlining "deficiencies in the January 26 draft of the Stranded Gas Contract." In the letter, addressed to Jim Clark, Murkowski's lead pipeline contract

11/10/2009 PRA_GSP01_0000109

Page 2 of 3

negotiator, van Meurs expressed his view that there are three major problems with the proposal. First, he cites fiscal stability: "I believe we have gone completely over board on fiscal stability," writes the consultant. "I strongly believe that we need adequate fiscal stability to encourage the investment in the pipeline. Nevertheless, there is no need for the near absolute fiscal stability that the agreement now contains. There is absolutely no need to treat Alaska as a banana republic in order to secure the gas line." Van Meurs singled out as an example of fiscal-certaintv-qone-mad the concept of capping municipal taxes: "The impact of variations in municipal taxes of general application on the project economics is negligible. Therefore, in my opinion municipalities should be free to tax as they wish and the Participants should pay these taxes without limit." Van Meurs also objected to a provision in Section 9A of the contract allowing the producers to recoup money the state may owe the producers by withholding the state's in-kind gas. "This provision is totally unnecessary and highly damaging to the interests of the State." There is extremely low risk the state would not pay an outstanding bill, he says, and that risk can be addressed "by introducing a simple carry forward provision as is done in most international contracts." Van Meurs notes that the whole contract rests on the notion that the state will improve the project economics by taking its gas in kind—this concept relies on the state's having a reasonable opportunity to market its gas. "The current provisions in 9A now seriously undermine the entire economic concept of the contract. ... I believe that any notion of recoupment of the State's gas in kind should be eliminated from the contract." Van Meurs' final concern related to the agreements governing the limited liability companies (LLCs) that were to build and operate the pipeline. The agreements were never finalized and presented to the public. The consultant's comments suggest a critical stumbling block was the state's inability to obtain a parent company guarantee. Van Meurs wrote: "The early drafts of the State proposal included a Parent Company Guarantee in order to guarantee the implementation of the Contract by the producers, the LLCs in Alaska and the lower 48 States and LP's in Canada." Absent such an agreement, he says, the contract cannot be enforced outside of Alaska. To date, van Meurs wrote, there has been "zero progress" on such an agreement among the producers. "Without a parent company guarantee the Contract is not worth the paper it is written on.

11/10/2009
PRA_GSP01_0000110

Page 2 of 3

Companies can simply escape the work commitments and participation rights of the State because the Alaska LLC's or Alaska producers have no control over the Canadian LP's or Lower 48 LLC's." Van Meurs says it would be a "fundamental error" to finalize the contract without a parent company guarantee in the contract. While van Meurs is referring to an unreleased draft of the contract dated January 26. 2006, there is little to suggest that his concerns were mitigated in the contract the administration released on May 24. The cap on municipal taxes and the recoupment provisions remained in the contract, and the contract did not include a parent company guarantee. Asked about the letter in a January 18. 2007 phone interview, Jim Clark downplayed its significance. "In any contract I've ever negotiated there's always been things clients have found that they don't like and they come back and say, 'fix this' or 'fix that,'" Clark said. "I was surprised that [with] the contract we ultimately put on the table May 24—457 pages—there were [so] few things that people were concerned about." (huh? Legislators and many others had few concerns?) Clark said the duration of fiscal stability was the chief concern among legislators, followed by a desire to "beef up" work commitments. Clark noted that the Senate Natural Gas Development Committee approved a measure that would limit the duration of tax stability guarantees. "We felt that we had an appropriate period of time but the whole thing was subject to the legislative review. ... So we as an administration were prepared to negotiate a lesser time." As for recoupment of gas in kind, Clark said van Meurs never liked the idea. The provisions were devised by Dan Dickinson, a former Tax Division director who worked as a consultant with the administration, Clark said. "Using recoupment to balance accounts seemed an expedited way," and he said the state had an opportunity to contest recoupment it deemed inappropriate. As for the parent company issues, Clark said the administration was looking to find alternative means of resolving the problem van Meurs cited. "Of course we never resolved the LLC with producers before time ran out." Van Meurs worked under a contract with the Department of Revenue. As of January, 2006, he had collected $2.1 million over the course of his multi-year contract. In addition to his role in shaping Murkowski's proposed Stranded Gas Act contract, van Meurs was the architect of the former governor's petroleum production tax (PPT) proposal.

Subject: RE: re: from January 19th Edition of Alaska Budget Report

I apologize for not having briefed you on this earlier. We didn't know if this would make much of a splash. The Van Mears letter was one of a large number of SGDA documents we released a couple weeks ago in response to a public information request. On December 8, I received a letter from Rep. Ethan Berkowitz requesting a large number of documents associated with the SGDA that were withheld by the Murkowski Administration from a previous request made by the representative. Marty and I worked with the department of law and members of the gasline team to go through the previously withheld documents and identify any that could and should be released. Our review criteria was that documents should be released unless there was a specific legal reason it had to be withheld, or if the information would be potentially damaging to the state's negotiating position on oil and gas matters in the future. Following the review, we released 50 additional documents, some with confidential information redacted. Under the SGDA, applicants could submit information and request that it be held confidential. Once the state deems the information confidential, certain legal restrictions kick in that limit the state's ability to publicly release the information. Other information withheld included analysis of the state's negotiating position on matters that are relevant beyond the SGDA contract. We also withheld confidential attorney-client communication, and information regarding Pt. Thomson subject to the on-going litigation. In total, Rep.

G'morning.

Does anyone know if this VanMeurs' info was part of a transition report? Or was a release of VanMeur info some other document(s) given to the AK Budget Report? I was surprised to read this... it sounds totally accurate, but was surprised to see it so wondered where it came from.

thanks! Scott Heyworth <heyworth@gci.net> wrote:

Van Meurs letter reveals misgivings about pipeline contract
Documents released by the office of Gov. Sarah Palin reveal that the Murkowski administration's lead consultant on gas pipeline contract negotiations had serious concerns about the contract Murkowski's team negotiated. Pedro van Meurs, the $3,000-a-day consulting economist who became the administration's prime explicator and cheerleader for the contract, wrote a February 1, 2006 memo outlining "deficiencies in the January 26 draft of the Stranded Gas Contract." In the letter, addressed to Jim Clark, Murkowski's lead pipeline contract negotiator, van Meurs expressed his view that there are three major problems with the proposal. First, he cites fiscal stability: "I believe we have gone completely over board on fiscal stability," writes the consultant. "I strongly believe that we need adequate fiscal stability to encourage the investment in the pipeline. Nevertheless, there is no need for the near absolute fiscal stability that the agreement now contains. There is absolutely no need to treat Alaska as a banana republic in order to secure the gas line." Van Meurs singled out as an example of fiscal-certaintv-gone-mad the concept of capping municipal taxes: "The impact of variations in municipal taxes of general application on the project economics is negligible. Therefore, in my opinion municipalities should be free to tax as they wish and the Participants should pay these taxes without limit."

Van Meurs also objected to a provision in Section 9A of the contract allowing the producers to recoup money the state may owe the producers by withholding the state's in-kind gas. "This provision is totally unnecessary and highly damaging to the interests of the State." There is extremely low risk the state would not pay an outstanding bill, he says, and that risk can be addressed "by introducing a simple carry forward provision as is done in most international contracts." Van Meurs notes that the whole contract rests on the notion that the state will improve the project economics by taking its gas in kind—this concept relies on the state's having a reasonable opportunity to market its gas. "The current provisions in 9 A now seriously undermine the entire economic concept of the contract. ... I believe that any notion of recoupment of the State's gas in kind should be eliminated from the contract." Van Meurs' final concern related to the agreements governing the limited liability companies (LLCs) that were to build and operate the pipeline. The agreements were never finalized and presented to the public. The consultant's comments suggest a critical stumbling block was the state's inability to obtain a parent company guarantee. Van Meurs wrote: "The early drafts of the State proposal included a Parent Company Guarantee in order to guarantee the implementation of the Contract by the producers, the LLC's in Alaska and the lower 48 States and LP's in Canada." Absent such an agreement, he says, the contract cannot be enforced outside of Alaska. To date, van Meurs wrote, there has been "zero progress" on such an agreement among the producers. "Without a parent company guarantee the Contract is not worth the paper it is written on. Companies can simply escape the work commitments and participation rights of the State because the Alaska LLC's or Alaska producers have no control over the Canadian LP's or Lower 48 LLC's." Van Meurs says it would be a "fundamental error" to finalize the contract without a parent company guarantee in the contract. While van Meurs is referring to an unreleased draft of the contract dated January 26, 2006, there is little to suggest that his concerns were mitigated in the contract the administration released on May 24. The cap on municipal taxes and the recoupment provisions remained in the contract. and the contract did not include a parent company guarantee. Asked about the letter in a January 18,2007 phone interview, Jim Clark downplayed its significance. "In any contract I've ever negotiated there's always been things clients have found that they don't like and they come back and say, 'fix this' or 'fix that,'" Clark said. "I was surprised that [with] the contract we ultimately put on the table May 24—457 pages—there were [so] few things that people were concerned about." (huh? Legislators and many others had few concerns?) Clark said the duration of fiscal stability was the chief concern among legislators, followed by a desire to "beef up" work commitments. Clark noted that the Senate Natural Gas Development Committee approved a measure that

11/10/2009
PRA_GSP01_0000114

Page 2 of 3

would limit the duration of tax stability guarantees. "We felt that we had an appropriate period of time but the whole thing was subject to the legislative review. ... So we as an administration were prepared to negotiate a lesser time." As for recoupment of gas in kind, Clark said van Meurs never liked the idea. The provisions were devised by Dan Dickinson, a former Tax Division director who worked as a consultant with the administration, Clark said. "Using recoupment to balance accounts seemed an expedited way," and he said the state had an opportunity to contest recoupment it deemed inappropriate. As for the parent company issues, Clark said the administration was looking to find alternative means of resolving the problem van Meurs cited. "Of course we never resolved the LLC with producers before time ran out." Van Meurs worked under a contract with the Department of Revenue. As of January, 2006, he had collected $2.1 million over the course of his multi-year contract. In addition to his role in shaping Murkowski's proposed Stranded Gas Act contract, van Meurs was the architect of the former governor's petroleum production tax (PPT) proposal.

Hi, my name is Cathy Glaser and I am a 37-year 4-H Leader and President of the 4-H Volunteer Leader's Assn. for the Mat-Su/Copper River Dist. I am writing to you about my concerns/ideas to save the 4-H program and it's most important arm-Cooperative Extension Service in Alaska. Recently, our CES Director, Tony Nakazawa, was terminated by UAF. He had just presented a comprehensive strategic plan to 'update' the 4-H program to make it 'contemporary.1 I read the 26-page plan and found it well researched and written. He had a plan to finance the CES program, so the University/state would not have to pull the full load. 1 have heard that Dr. Jones, from UAF wants to make CES into a research vs. service/educational. Having been involved in the 4-H program for 47 years, I can tell you that it is and has been a very important part of me and my family-5 children went through the 4-H family. 4-H has most of ail, made all of them better citizens to contribute all they can to the United States. They worked for and earned many national trips, made many new friends, had fantastic experiences, and especially gained knowledge from the 4-H Program. Today, the 4-H program has changed with the times, and offers many new and exciting projects. I have through the years, been very impressed with the CES personnel in both Wyoming and Alaska. Both of these states value the work that CES people provide, both for the everyday life issues and the agriculture issues that concern our states. I do not believe that 4-H could function without CES in the state of Alaska. I do not want Alaska to be the only state that does not have the CES Program, especially with a land-grant university. I feel that CES should have their own line-item in the annual budget of the University. That way, the personal vendetta from certain officials at UAF, would not be able to completely cut CES and in turn, 4-H.

Governor Palin, Lt. Governor Parnell; I have had some long talks with several different medical providers including Cathy Giessel, Deb Kiley, Dr. Gower (Alaska State Medical Association President), Dr, George Rhyneer Sr, Alaska Physicians and Surgeons members, and others all around the state about state related medical issues. It was also very enlightening being a member of the DHSS transition team and listening intently to each of the members while taking copious notes. I, and most others, agree that there should be a health care council or board to help guide the administration. There is a real problem, however, with career theorists outlining what should be done. There absolutley needs to be a balance between career medical theorists fighting for grant money and sometimes pushing ideas that are naive and dated, at best, with people who actually practice different aspects of medicine. I was both impressed with the background knowledge and abilities of many of the DHSS transition team as well as shocked at some absolutely misleading assumptions and lack of medical expertise. There were political agendas, well stated, that would absolutely have no impact on providing help to the underserved but would serve as an ongoing funding source for grants and power. This was worrisome to me and demonstrated the absolute need to have more clinician input which is not possible when "health care" meetings are scheduled during clinicians working hours by career panelists who can carry on their agendas unimpeded. I have talked to several people who would gladly volunteer their time on a board that would help the people of the state rather than wonder like most of the clinicians "where does all of this stuff come from?" This would include: Dr. David Head, Nome Jason Harmon, N.D., Doctor of Naturopathy to express that perspective Jean Tsigonis, M.D., from Fairbanks and on the State Medical Board Larry Stinson, M.D., myself with practices in the Valley, Fairbanks, and Anchorage Victor Bartling, D.O., an outstanding Family Practitioner from Fairbanks George Rhyneer, Sr., M.D., Anchorage Cardiologist Roland Gower, M.D., Anchorage Surgeon and current ASMA President Cathy Giessel, R.N., A.N.P. who I would support as Board Chairperson, she did a fine on the DHSS transition tearm Dan Kiley, DDS, Anchorage Dentist with alot of experience on boards Elizabeth Turgeon, M.D., Wasilla Family Practitioner who also used to practice in Cordova Melissa Peters, D.O., Wasilla Family Practioner with a strong committment to patient advocacy John Mitchell, C.R.N.A. from ANMC Adrian Ryan, M.D., an Inupiaq Orthopedic Surgeon who works in Anchorage but runs clinics also in the Nome area.

The goal is for the public to be able to trust that our administration is transparent and trustworthy, so you all personally communicating views and opinions is very important and would NEVER be banned. I have NEVER banned any of our team members from voicing opinions on anything. In fact, I've stated that the more information and communication efforts put forth on behalf of your departments and divisions, the better. I've asked that you all share your opinions, speak freely to press, public, legislators, one another, etc. (In other words, don't do what past administrations have done. I have faith that we're on the right path going a new direction here with freedom in information sharing... Alaskans deserve better than the tried and failed efforts of past administrations' withholding information and expressed opinions by decisions makers.) I will write to the 'Ear reporter and clarify for her also. Kari - would you please send to all Commissioners? I don't have some new addresses here. Thank you! Also, last night's Valley ball was lots of fun. At the event we got to wish Happy 25th Anniversary to Talis Colberg!!! The Lt. Governor and I are off to Kodiak today. Then Hooper Bay tomorrow. Thanks for everything, everyone! I appreciate you all very much and look forward to more cabinet meetings where we're all together in one room. It will be great to have Leo on board at DOT next week. Let's make the next swearing-in ceremony of our new Commissioners a great event and let's try for a cabinet lunch/dinner afterwards. Bitney - remember to invite the different groups of Legislators for lunches/dinners this week and next. The more the merrier. Thanks for working with Kari and Erika on this.

Does that sound anything like your agenda? It is the current ADFG leadership that has gotten us into this mess (240,000 down to 100,000 moose in 12 years, one halibut per day for sport fishermen, while increasing the commercial take by 1,000,000 lbs., etc.). Lots of people want to share your power, but do they share your agenda? Rossi is a trusted friend who has been promoting nothing but your agenda of managing for abundance. He has managed to acquire huge grass roots support from across the state for your agenda. This morning, your agenda dominated the Rick Rydel show, again. The hunters and sport fishermen are really

The rumor is that Eddie Grasser has been bragging around the valley that Tibbies has you "tied-up" and that Lloyd is a guarantee, regardless of anyone else's credentials. This might explain why your advisors have been unwilling to speak to Rossi even though he has huge backing within the public. People have told me that when they tried to express their support for Rossi to your staff, they have been told that he didn't have a chance and that everyone should be supporting Lloyd. Rossi's organization is about 35-40 people, with a 1.5 million dollar budget that he himself raises within Alaska each year. In other words, under his direction his outfit pays its own way. In 1995, he moved back to Alaska with a suitcase and a dream, and has built the Alaska Wildlife Services Program from scratch. You have made several good choices for other commissioner spots (Colberg and Galvin for example) who did not build, nor even run an organization as big as Rossi's.

Rossi is a successful businessman who wants to bring a business mindset to the ADFG.

Pipeline plan would bring gas to Fairbanks by 2013
By Eric Lidii Staff Writer Fairbanks News-Miner Published January 30, 2007 A new Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority plan presented Monday would bring North Slope natural gas to Fairbanks and other points in the state by 2013. The Alaska Gas Market System, as the plan is called, would cost $5 billion and ultimately bring $1.25 billion cubic feet of natural gas daily through a 24-inch pipeline from the North Slope to Glennallen, where it would split into two smaller pipelines bound for the Cook Inlet and a liquefying plant in Valdez, according to Harold Heinze, chief executive officer of ANGDA. Heinze said the new proposal places Alaskan interests first by initially serving Alaskan markets, and eventually expanding into exporting capabilities to help increase the profitability of the project. The plan has a much narrower scope than previous projects. Heinze called the plan "doable." It would require 10 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, or 40 percent of the known Prudhoe Bay reserves, to make the project financially feasible for 20 years. Heinze estimated that would be one-fifth of the natural gas needed to make some of the larger pipeline proposals economically viable. Heinze said 30 percent of the total gas needed for the project would come from the state inkind royalties, and the rest would have to come from one of the major North Slope

11/10/2009
PRA_GSP01_0000141

Page 2 of 2

producers, either ExxonMobil, BP or ConocoPhillips. Heinze also allowed for alternate sources of undeveloped gas. The initial $5 billion price tag would be split between $4 billion to build 970 miles of buried pipe following the route of trans-Alaska oil pipeline, and a $1 billion conditioning plant on the North Slope. A Valdez liquefying plant would cost an additional $3 billion. It would deliver 0.25 billion cubic feet of natural gas daily to Fairbanks and the Cook Inlet, and expand once the Valdez station went online. Heinze said the pipeline could be integrated into future projects. "It would not hurt the economics of any future pipeline and it's not intended to replace a big pipeline," Heinze said. In the memo, Heinze said the project was "intended to be advanced simultaneous with other efforts" and that "ANGDA intends to work with any and all interested and experience parties" over the next two years of project planning. ANGDA is requesting $5 million to study and define the project. The proposal is a response to Gov. Sarah Palin's early December request from ANGDA for natural gas options. It attempts to alleviate concerns over delays in a Canadian route to the Lower 48 and a larger pipeline that would require participation from the three North Slope major producers. "Does Alaska want to sit around and wait." Heinze asked. "And the answer is, 'Probably not.'"

Tomorrow night's dinner should be scheduled for 1.5 hours instead of 2 hrs. (A two-hour scheduled meeting means it will be closer to 3 hrs. before it wraps up.) Also, meetings like tonight's mining meeting over here at the house can be scheduled for 1 hour at the most, as even those type of events drag on for much longer than they really need to. I know I sound picky about the time parameters I put around these events, but every minute is precious in these days that go by much too fast as I have so much to do. If folks know ahead of time that I'm counting on the event to wrap up in a certain timeframe then I won't feel so guilty getting up and moving on to my next task at a certain time. I would like to have more events over at the house, but not if they go on for too many hours into the evening, as those evening hours have to be spent catching up on emails and phone calls and getting ready for the next day's events.

Subject: RE: halibut Governor: No, I do not support the decision by the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC) to reduce the sport charter bag limit to one fish during part of the summer. The IPHC is not the appropriate venue to make these allocative decisions; the North Pacific Fishery Management Council is (even though the Council has not effectively dealt with this issue recently). I don't blame commercial fishermen for going to the IPHC for action, since the North Pacific Council hasn't acted, but still the Council is where this issue belongs. The one fish bag limit decision for parts of 2007 is an unnecessarily harsh measure for the sport charter businesses. If the IPHC felt compelled to take an action to reduce sport charter harvest, we had recommended that they consider some less onerous, but still effective, measures. Those included the action that we, ADF&G, have just taken to restrict skipper and crew on charter boats from fishing when paying clients are onboard. Other actions could have been establishing a bag limit of "one plus", which means one fish of any size plus another fish of some size greater than, say, 32 inches long. Anyway, Governor, the issue of sport charter harvests does need to be dealt with, but a few-day meeting of an international body such as the IPHC is not the proper way to gather and effectively deal with public input on a domestic fishery issue. I have written a letter to Alaska Regional Administrator of the National Marine Fisheries Service, Jim Balsiger (who is also an IPHC Commissioner), this past week outlining these concerns. We hope that there might be a way to have the federal government implement an alternative, and less onerous, restriction for sport charter harvests this summer. Please let me know if you need anything else. Take care, DL.

Governor Palin, Hopefully you have received and reviewed my Regent application (qualifications) by now. I would like to add a few other facts regarding the residency issue. As noted in my qualifications, I am a 1969 graduate of the University of Alaska Fairbanks (while attending college I played basketball for the Nanooks and was also the sports editor for the Polar Star newspaper my senior year). After graduation I went to work as a real estate appraiser, built a home, and raised a family in Fairbanks. My wife (Linda) who is also a University of Alaska graduate, taught at Main Junior High School. Our son (Stevie) began his youth hockey there and our daughter (Stephanie) was born in Fairbanks. After my employer relocated their main office to Anchorage in the mid-1970's, I continued to work in Fairbanks. In the mid-1980's I was selected by the State of Alaska (DNR) as the Fairbanks expert for a three (3) member valuation panel to analyze and value 1,000,000 acres involving 8,000 statewide parcels of Mental Health Trust Lands. Today, I continue to do work in Fairbanks. Last fall, for example, my firm was contracted to appraise a large group of gas stations in Fairbanks for an Alaska Native regional corporation. As you know, my roots go deep in Alaska, but I wanted you to know more about me and my Fairbanks history. Respectively, Steve MacSwain

Socked-in governor goes to school
By TOM MILLER Ketchikan Daily News KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) -- Gov. Sarah Palin had planned to meet with Exxon Tuesday in Juneau but instead found herself in Ketchikan, where she sought out an invitation to read aloud to children at Houghtaling Elementary School. She also answered first-graders' questions, danced with kindergartners and implored all the children to read at home with their families. Many air travelers became stranded due to weather conditions in Southeast Alaska in recent days. Flight 66 overheaded Juneau Monday evening and also landed in Ketchikan. Palin recounted her hectic experiences while attempting to get to Juneau aboard a Department of Public Safety twin-engine Beechcraft. "We left Kodiak on Sunday," she said, "then to Anchorage (because) we couldn't get to Hooper Bay on Monday; instead, spent it in Anchorage. Yesterday afternoon, we tried to fly into Juneau. Circled around, couldn't do Sitka even; landed in Ketchikan, spent the night, will try to do Juneau later. "We stayed in Ketchikan last night, thinking that we were going to try early this morning to get back to Juneau. But I had this meeting with Exxon this morning and I'm like, 'Hmmm, Exxon? Or go to kindergarten classes in Ketchikan? What is more fun and productive? It's going to kindergarten class.' "And the very first school I called, they said: 'Sure, we'd love you to come read, or anything.'" The governor, who was accompanied by her 16- and 14-year-old daughters, stayed at

The Landing Hotel Monday night, according to Alaska State Trooper Lt. Rodney Dial. Her visit to Houghtaling began at 10 a.m. in teacher Kimberly Berg's first-grade classroom. Along with Berg's students, Gretchen Klinger and Jennifer Simpson's firstgraders also joined the fun. After reading several books by Alaska authors to the 48 students, Palin opened the floor to questions. To one first-grader, Palin explained the governor's job. "A governor is elected by the voters in the state," she said, to help make decisions and to provide money for schools and police departments and other things the state needs. "Kind of a manager of the state," Palin said. "I'm the ninth governor of the state." One student asked about Palin's clothing. "Most governors in the past, they've all worn a suit and a tie," Palin said. "But every governor in the past has been a man. So, for the first time, you're going to see a governor wearing a dress. They can wear whatever they want, though." Another child remarked: "The governor wears necklaces." Palin responded: "This governor does. And bracelets, yes." A little girl summed up: "The governor's wearing makeup and glasses and put up their hair and they have earrings on and they wear skirts and boots." "Good observation," Palin said, adding that there are nine women governors in the United States of America, "and so other women governors probably do the same thing." The first-graders were very interested in Palin's children. The governor explained that she has a 17-year-old boy, and girls aged 16, 12 and 5. The two older girls were in Ketchikan on Tuesday, Palin said, but the youngest was in school, in kindergarten. Regarding the 5-year-old, a young student shouted out: "She's going to be six." "Yes," Palin said, "she's going to be six." "I knew it!" the student shouted back. One child asked whether Palin had a fish in her office. "I wish we did," Palin replied. "You know, we don't even have a fish. I think we need something to lighten up the place." Palin also volunteered to read to the school's 39 students in its two kindergarten classes, taught by Michelle Dyakanoff and Connie Wingren In the kindergarten class. Palin read "Green Eggs and Ham" in fine Dr. Seuss style. Then the whole class read aloud, with Palin. from the book. "Brown Bear. Brown Bear. What do You See?" by Bill Martin Jr. Dyakanoff roused the children to stand up to perform the "Tootyta Dance" by author Dr. Jean Feldman. Palin joined in, going through the motions with the children and singing "Thumbs up, elbows back, feet apart, knees together... Ah tootyta, ah tootyta, ah tootytata!" To both classes, as she departed, Palin thanked the teachers and children "for letting me be here and letting me read to you, and promise me that you'll read a lot and you'll read in your own homes at night with your family, 'cause that's the most fun thing to do in the world." She asked the kindergartners for a round of applause for their "amazing" teachers. On her way out the door, Palin shook hands with school secretary Tami Daniels, who had received Palin's call earlier in the morning, and said, "There's no place I'd rather be." "That was really special that she did that," Wingren said of Palin's visit to the school. Shortly before noon, Palin gathered her pilot and Alaska State Trooper escort in the hallway and departed the building.

Great message. I would not have guessed that Wesley would have asked that question and I'm sorry to not have had further information in front of you. Your answer is perfect and in line with our answers that we gave late yesterday from a couple of reporters, including Sam Bishop (Washington, DC-based Fairbanks Daily News Miner). Also, Commissioner Rutherford, if you talk to Wesley, John Katz suggested this morning that we speak about the gasline in a more global sense how Alaska's secure domestic oil and gas supplies can help power the nation. We're not just looking at helping ourselves. Thanks.

FYI From: John Spiegel [mailto:spiegel@gci.net] Sent: Thursday, February 01, 2007 3:10 PM To: mike_tibbles@gov.state.ak.us Subject: Rossi for Commissioner - NO Dear Mike, I am writing in regards to Corey Rossi's interest in becoming Commissioner of Fish and Game. Even though I am a long term Alaskan resident, trapper, sport fisherman and hunter I do not want to see Corey Rossi in this position. I have worked with Rossi for 13 years for Wildlife Services and I left that position because of his unethical behavior (conflict of interest and abuse of his position). I have found that while Rossi talks high standards he does not hold himself to those standards. He is a very persuasive person, but part of that persuasion includes deceit. As far a being qualified for that position, there are many others who are far more qualified than he is. He does not have a strong background (academic or practical) in wildlife management. Corey knows how to trap and he has helped put together teams for USFWS and others for their management projects, but he has had little to do with actual management decisions. My main concern is his unethical behavior. I have little doubt that if he is appointed to this position he will become an ethical embarrassment. Thank you Jon Spiegel

As was expressed to me by another person, her story does sound like a horror story - though I know there are always two sides to it. She is very, very frustrated with "the system", and is very sad that it seems to her the intent of OCS is to keep families apart, not bring them back together. I assume you know the details of her case. I trust that we're working to help her family -1 don't believe she trusts that the state is working to help. Please let me know if and what the state can do to build the Privilegefamily's faith that "the system" is working to help them, not hurt them. Thank you, Sarah

Governor,

Following our phone call yesterday related to gasline issues, Marty R. asked me two questions, the first had to do with what the gasline team (Rutherford, Anders, Balash, Galvin) can do to better involve you. I

suggested that she call your scheduler once a week, at minimum, to get on your calendar and update you on progress and ask for direction.

Second, she said my role on the gasline was "less than clear" to her given the discussion that was had related to the federal side. I told

her that what I took from the conversation was that you personally wanted to take a stronger, leadership role on the federal side. Also,

even though I didn't say it, I really didn't know how to interpret your silence to my discussion of what I thought my gasline role was for you (advance work on the federal side). however, without clear direction from you. I am reluctant to move,

Please tell me what role you want me to play, if any. I will support you and move forward in whatever way you want, but I do need some clarity on it.

Regards,

Sean

Hopefully the Kenai reporter (though his headline was misleading) understood what my opinion is on this. The headline made it sound like I stated blind support for government rebuilding private amenities like docks, staircases, etc.

Hello Mike. Ivy February 5, 2007

Here's a summary of my thoughts on the issue

Governor has authority to do right thing Governor Palin has the authority to appoint and remove members of the University Board of Regents. While the Governor's removal authority should only be exercised with caution, the law is clear that there are no specific removal provisions that restrict her authority to replace a Regent. If ever there were a time for the Governor to exercise that appointment authority, the time is now - when there is a sitting regent who misused and touted the official University seal for private purposes, and who is also clouded with a 92-count indictment including misuse of public money. The public expects Governor Palin to follow through on her pledge to have only honest, ethical Alaskans on the state's boards. In this case, the Attorney General's opinion that says the Governor does not have the authority to replace a sitting Regent - appears to be only that - an opinion. And unfortunately for the public counting on the Governor to do the right thing, the AG's opinion isn't backed up by the statutes relating the Regent appointments, nor is it backed up the Alaska Constitutional references related to University Regent appointments. And, even if the Governor were restricted by (a non-existent) statute or Constitutional provision saying she could only remove the member for cause, wouldn't you agree that a sitting University Regent applying for a federal grant for his private church or organization and putting the Official University seal on that letterhead might be construed as a misuse of that seal, and a misuse of that Regent's position for gain? Sounds like cause to me. Either way one looks at it, Governor Palin has the authority to do the right thing.

Subject: DOT Transistion Report

The DOT article this morning in Juneau Empire is a must read for our new DOT folks. The Transition Report captured much of the reality in DOT today. The earmarked projects that are causing such consternation have confused and frustrated DOT personnel, as well as many of us in the public. Kari - would you please make sure Leo V. gets a copy of that article, plus the Transition Report. Please get him this email also, I don't have his personal address. You'll have to call him to forward it. (It's a report like that that I don't believe we should have kept from the press/public for weeks - it helps explain the actions I've taken like canceling the Pioneer Rd. contract, replacing Robin Taylor, examining the purchase of material for other projects, etc. It does more harm than good to keep reports like that under wraps... and I still have to be convinced it's an appropriate thing to do - not releasing as much info, as possible to the public.) thanks!

Corey To: SPalin@mtaonIine.net Dear Governor Palin Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to attempt to make contact with me. In answer to your request, yes, I am very interested in becoming part of "the team". Please find attached a draft position description that represents my understanding of what I think it is you would like to see in the Deputy position. Please review and modify as you see fit. Having said this, please allow me to qualify my interest by clarifying a few points. 1. Thousands of Alaskan's (including me) are still very excited about your promise to return ADFG management to its constitutional foundation - managing for maximum sustained yield, to the benefit of all Alaskans. 2. Having now spent a couple of months promoting your abundance management agenda throughout the state, I am more aware than ever that the collective belief in your abundance campaign promise represents the very core of your sportsman support base. 3. As I shared with Nizich last Thursday, if you intend to hire and delegate the appropriate authority to me as an agent of change for the better (within ADFG), I will give you everything I've got to accomplish your agenda. As I've said before, I strongly believe in you and your vision. 4. Make no mistake; the "anti-abundance agenda" is alive and well within ADFG. I have no doubt we will meet some measure of resistance in trying to "grow" more fish and game. In many of today's wildlife management circles, the unspoken rule is to use a "custodial" management approach (the nature's balance approach). This makes less work for the managers (fewer animals to count, fewer battles with those of opposing viewpoints, etc.), and sets the stage for a variety of crises (e.g., population crashes, allocation battles, etc.), which then become the basis for requests for increased Department funding to "fix" the problem. 5.1 will be the first to admit that the numerous and diverse commercial fisheries issues would have been a serious distraction to my fulfilling your abundance agenda. I only ran

for the top slot in an effort to guarantee that adequate human and material resources would be dedicated to your abundance agenda. If such assurances can be realized through other mechanisms, I am very interested in pursuing this effort. In closing, I again thank you for the invite. I look forward to the opportunity to be a productive member of your team. When you can set a brief amount of time aside, I would like to discuss these things with you personally. However, I know your time is in very short supply. Please let me know when, where, and how much time we have, and I will prepare accordingly. In the interim, I am providing everything in writing to allow you to review the material on your own schedule. Respectfully, Corey Rossi adcman@alaska.com (907) 355-2473 cell (907) 746-6387 home

On the political environment in Congress at this point: 1. The prevailing view in Congress is that the federal government already gave at the counter for the Alaska pipeline (accelerated depreciation, etc.) and they want to know what the state is going to do—what "skin in the game" will we have. (She's willing to work with us to help with any "asks" we might have—this was merely her comment on the prevailing thinking at this point in DC.) She pointed out that individual senators are trying to get subsidies/help for the energy industries in their states and unless the message is managed well they can stop progress on anything Alaska might want where they can say the federal government is already "in" on the gas pipeline. For example, Sen. Domenici is trying to get help with nuclear power, the Wyoming delegation is trying to get help with coal. 2. Because the gas pipeline hasn't been in the news in DC there are questions about how aggressively we're pursuing a pipeline. In my words, it seems to be the "out of sight, out of mind, nothing must be happening" perception. Again, Lisa knows we're pushing it—this was her comment on prevailing DC political environment. The DOE Secretary also verbally expressed this perception in the Energy Committee yesterday in response to some of Lisa's questions regarding funding for Drue's office. 3. Lisa's message has been, "new governor, new administration, new ideas, give them a chance to act..." On who 1. 2. 3. you should meet with while you are in DC, Lisa suggested the following: FERC/Kelleher, in particular. DOE Secretary to update him. Congressional delegation (she offered that they could all meet together with you to save time)

4. American Gas Association (David Parker) On messaging, Lisa suggested, 1. You are aggressively pursuing a gas pipeline 2. The state's willing to participate and here's how (name pieces) 3. Talk about this being in the national interest (affordable, reliable energy—1 would add "clean") 4. We're making it happen, we're doing it right One warning from Lisa: She encouraged us not to seek out Democrats in Congress yet on this—she thinks it's premature until we know exactly what we're asking. That's it for now. Sean

This was very different from what APD did in that at APD actually did background checks before the Chief approved or disapproved these requests, so I wanted to see the written procedure that AST worked under. I have since read that memo and advised that we continue that process, though I may want to examine this with our directors and legal in the future.

Kari & Tib - pis. remind those folks that I MUST loosen up some hours in the day so I can concentrate on gasline issues... I am sure people will understand that these packed schedules everyday have to have some "give" in them in order for me to start responding to gasline inquiries. There are too few hours in the day - and night - to continue the packed schedule that has not included enough gasline discussions on my part. Surely people will understand that gasline must be my priority at this time because there's a great deal of concern in the legislature that we haven't buckled down on that issue. (Those concerned are basing everything on erroneous assumptions, but the problem these assumputions cause are growing and must be addressed.)

I'm working on a story that's moving Thursday and I hope one of you can help me. I was working with Charles Fedulo on it but now I hear he's no longer with the governor's office. Here's the story: erosion has made Newtok's closest river so shallow that barges can no longer make regular fuel deliveries there. Fuel to operate the village power plant is being flown in, but others can't afford the costly alternative. So residents are looking for help to build some kind of pipeline system to transport fuel delivered by barges from the next nearest river. But complicating that effort, state and federal funds have dried up because Newtok has begun to relocate from its increasingly battered

I am a hunter and firmly support Alaska's great hunting opportunities. However, I oppose hunting in the McNeil River State Game Sanctuary. It is too close to the McNeil River Falls and the popular viewing area. That area is a gem. The sanctuary is one of Alaska's treasures. People come to Alaska from around the world to see our bears and, in this case, I do believe there are plenty of other opportunities to hunt bears without hunting so close to Alaska's gem,

Resource Nationalism Frustrates Exxon

Resource nationalism comes in many forms, but whatever tactics are applied, the policy is vexing Exxon Mobil on almost 1

PRA GSP01 0000248

every continent. Addressing journalists at the Cambridge Energy Research Associates (Cera) conference in Houston on Tuesday, Exxon Chairman and Chief Executive Rex W. Tillerson noted access and contractual challenges in Venezuela, Indonesia and Alaska as well as uncertainties in other countries such as Russia. Tillerson told reporters that he was unaware of the latest reports from Venezuela about the country's ever-changing energy policies. He said the company is waiting on government representatives to deliver the newest policy on ownership and operations of oil and gas projects in the South American country. "We have not had conversations about this point regarding the new regime," he said. "We are waiting on the government representatives to sit down with us and give us some of the details of what exactly is it their objectives are, how you migrate and offer compensation." In Indonesia, state Pertamina is threatening to bring in a new partner to replace Exxon in developing the giant offshore Natuna natural gas field. Technical challenges, particularly the field's high percentage of carbon dioxide, have prevented its development to date. According to reports out of Jakarta, Pertamina is in discussions with Norwegian Statoil about coming in on the longdelayed project, which was news to Tillerson. "I've only heard about that myself 2

this morning," he said. In Exxon's opinion the existing contract with Pertamina on Natuna "is still in effect." He added that negotiations are ongoing and that he wouldn't expect other parties to inadvertently interfere with those efforts. A Statoil executive attending the Cera conference told Oil Daily that he did not know the specifics of discussions between Statoil and Pertamina, but indicated talks had taken place. Statoil has had significant experience dealing with carbon dioxide sequestration in the North Sea. Exxon and potential partners BP and ConocoPhillips thought they had an agreement with the state of Alaska on terms to build the long-awaited natural gas pipeline from Alaska's North Slope to markets in Canada and the US lower 48. The state legislature rejected the terms, and the project again is in limbo. "I don't really know where we are," Tillerson said. "I don't think it looks like Alaska knows where it wants to go, either," he said. In the Russian Far East, oil output at the Sakhalin-1 project has reached its targeted level of 250,000 barrels per day as the final well was tied into the production facilities, he said. The company also is delivering 130 million cubic feet of gas per day to the regional market. Exxon has signed a heads of agreement with China National Petroleum Corp. to deliver 3

PRA GSP01 0000250

up to 2 billion cubic feet of gas per day via pipeline, but the deal is not yet final, Tillerson said. If a contract is concluded, then Exxon expects to work with Russian gas monopoly Gazprom on constructing an export pipeline. Tillerson indicated that Exxon and its partners have not settled on the pipeline option for the Sakhalin gas. "We continue to look at other options," he said, adding that Japan and India are interested in LNG. He said the final decision will depend on which choice would provide the greatest returns.

Dear Sarah, I heard through the grapevine that Dave Tyler is a candidate for the state fire marshal's position. Our state would be well served if Dave got the job. Almost 20 years ago, when I was in college, I did extensive volunteer work as a firefighter and ACLS EMT III. I volunteered with Dave at Chena Goldstream Fire and Rescue where he was the assistant chief, and later, the department's chief. I was so impressed with him that I wrote a letter of recommendation to the Goldstream board when the chiefs position came open. I recall seeing Dave on the cold concrete floor, literally, twisting wrenches on the fire engines when he easily could have asked someone else to do the job. He had a real can-do attitude, and was great to work with. One of the concerns that I have is with Alaska's high fire death rate- a rate much higher than the national average. Dave has shared the same concerns with me over the years, and he and I both agree that the key to saving lives is though fire prevention. A state fire marshal with Dave's intelligence, dedication and concern about how we can reduce this state's abysmal fire death record will ultimately save lives. Dave is cut from the same cloth as Tom Irwin- another Fairbanksan who I have tremendous regard for. So there's my two cents... (again). Thank you for your gracious note, I am glad you enjoyed the photographs. It really made my day!

Subject: FW. Pandemic Flu Exercise/Addition Information Governor, I need to get back to the Department of Defense fairly quicker. They would like to know if Alaska would be interested in holding a pandemic flu exercise in August involving state and federal officials. John Katz and Mike Nizich recommend the event. It would require about a half a day of your time. Additional information is listed below. Thank you.

From: John Katz [mailto:jwkatz@ALASKADC.org] Sent: Wednesday, January 31, 2007 5:16 AM To: Michael Tibbies; Mike Nizich; Karleen Jackson; Craig Campbell Cc: Allison Nyholm; Chip Abemattiy; Kari Spencer Subject: Pandemic Flu Exercise/Addition Information

After a discussion yesterday with Mike Nizich, I contacted Col. Chris Goggins of the Air Force to obtain additional information about the offer by the Department of Defense to hold a pandemic flu exercise in Alaska involving State and federal officials. DoD would like to hold the exercise in Anchorage, probably at Elmendorf, in August. DoD would work with the State to determine the location, b u t it needs to be in a secure area. The Governor would select State officials and other invitees, b u t DoD will suggest the inclusion of certain Federal officials. The exercise would be held on a single day and would involve four or five hours of the Governor's time and that of other State officials. The participants would be divided into one or two "cells" or working groups headed by a facilitator. The groups would then be exposed to three "cycles" relating to pandemic flu. These would involve scenarios beginning with the detection of the flu virus in a relatively isolated part of the world followed by the spread to Alaska and then to most of the world. Participants would be exposed to mock news broadcasts and summaries of the relevant information. This would be followed by discussion and decision making led by the facilitator. There would be no cross discussion between working groups. At the end of the session, there would be a "hot wash" summaiy and critique of each cell's responses. This might well be followed by a more in-depth critique prepared at a later time and provided to the Governor. The exercise would be modeled after an earlier one conducted in Hawaii. I am advised that both Federal and Hawaiian officials felt that this exercise was very helpful in promoting cooperation and in identifying strengths and weaknesses in the decision making process. I recommend that we respond affirmatively to the DoD offer. I can see no down sides to doing so, and the exercise should help strengthen the State's approach to natural and man-made disasters.

With New Pipeline Plan, Alaska's Governor Enters Precarious Territory

Charles Mason for The New York Times Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska greeting her husband, Todd, a champion snowmobiler, after a race in Fairbanks.

By WILLIAM YARDLEY Published: February 19, 2007 JUNEAU, Alaska, — The new administration of Gov. Sarah Palin has been full of firsts. Ms. Palin, a Republican, is Alaska's first female governor and, at 42, its youngest. She held her inauguration in frosty Fairbanks, a first that suited her conservative supporters but slighted the traditional host, this rainy, remote and less Republican state capital. She also appears to be the only governor in history whose spouse is a champion snowmobile racer and a former Arctic oil worker, and is widely referred to as First Dude. Now, two months after taking office, Ms. Palin wants to become the first Alaska governor to deliver what many others have sought without success: construction of a $30 billion pipeline to transport natural gas from the state's North Slope to markets in the lower 48 states. It is an enormous project that could strengthen Alaska's energy-based economy for decades to come, while also, according to some estimates, supplying 7 percent of the nation's natural gas annually. But pulling off this first is shaping up to be more complicated. Elected by a wide margin after promising to bring "new energy" and "transparency" to the pipeline project, Ms. Palin took office in December and immediately backed away from the negotiations that her predecessor, Frank H. Murkowski, had been pursuing with the three major energy companies that control much of the land where gas would be developed. Ms. Palin has long criticized those negotiations as back-room dealings whose extensive incentives and tax breaks would have benefited the energy companies, BP, Exxon Mobil and ConocoPhillips, far more than they would have Alaska. "Don't get me started," she said in an interview in her Capitol office on Thursday. So next month, Ms. Palin intends to introduce the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act, a bill that would open the bidding to new players, as well as the old ones. She says her plan would ensure new jobs and access to gas for state residents. She also says that whoever gets to control the pipeline must allow for its potential expansion so that other gas developers can use

it at reasonable prices, thus encouraging more development. The new plan, however, would delay a formal agreement until next year at the earliest, and it would be another decade, until 2018, before the pipeline was in operation. Ms. Palin won votes last fall for vowing to take just such steps, but in taking them, she has stirred concern beyond Alaska at a time when the Bush administration says it wants to develop new sources of energy. In a report to Congress last month, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said "the schedule for an Alaska gas pipeline has slipped considerably." The state's senior senator, Ted Stevens, a Republican famous for bringing big projects home, has openly expressed worry. And on Tuesday, Rex W. Tillerson, the chairman and chief executive of Exxon Mobil, one of the companies that hopes to build the pipeline, said: "I don't really know where we are. I don't think it looks like Alaska knows where it wants to go, either." Ms. Palin dismissed that talk. But next week, when she attends a National Governors Association meeting in Washington, she plans to visit Alaska's Congressional delegation and meet with officials at Exxon Mobil and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, among others. Besides putting minds at ease, she said, she wants to broaden the appeal of the project with the goal of gaining leverage in negotiations. "This project is so much bigger than Alaska and Alaska's interests," Ms. Palin said. "This is for the nation. This is to supply domestically safe sources of fuel. We're going to be able to do that. We should be leading in a national energy plan." The report by the energy commission suggested just such thinking, although it had a more urgent tone than in earlier assessments and sprinkled in some skepticism. "The main obstacle to progress on an Alaskan gas pipeline is the failure to resolve state issues necessary before a project sponsor will commit to go forward," the report said. "The fresh competitive approach announced by the new governor must be successful if Alaska gas is to be part of the nation's energy supply solution in the coming years." Steve Rinehart, a spokesman for BP Exploration Alaska, which controls the most land in the area expected to be developed first, said that with natural gas prices projected to stay relatively high and oil production on the North Slope declining, "the time has come to bring that gas to market." "It makes sense economically," Mr. Rinehart said. "It makes sense for the life of this oil field." But in the past, aides to Ms. Palin said, the big energy companies refused to commit to expanding the pipeline or to allow outside companies to use it for reasonable fees. Mr. Rinehart disagreed. "We were ready to address those issues," he said, "but the process stopped." Critical to pushing a plan through is the state's 60-member, Republican-controlled Legislature. Mr. Murkowski, a former United States senator, clashed with state lawmakers over his pipeline plan through his final days in office. Ms. Palin, by contrast, has echoed their concerns about giving away too much in tax breaks to the energy companies. "What the governor has is a lot of credibility with the public," said State Representative John Harris, the speaker of the House. "She's been a breath of fresh air, in my opinion." Lyda Green, president of the Senate, said Ms. Palin came to office without the intimate knowledge of the energy and financial industries that Mr. Murkowski had. But "she's a very quick study," Ms. Green said. "She has good people around her." Ms. Palin has brought back some top staff members who left in protest over how Mr. Murkowski had been conducting the pipeline negotiations. Now she wants them to help her complete the deal that Mr. Murkowski never could. "We are crafting this whole process with our arms open, even for Exxon," Ms. Palin said. "Come on in and let us know what you have in terms of a proposal to commercialize Alaska's

I'm game to meet him Christopher Clark
MikeWhen you and the Governor are in Washington, D.C., Jerry Reinwand recommends that you hook up with a guy named Pete Rouse. Rouse was once chief-of-staff for then-Lieutenant Governor Terry Miller. He's now chief-of-staff for a guy named Barack Obama. A few weeks ago, Jerry wrote: Pete Rouse (formerly Terry Miller's Chief of Staff when I was on Jay's staff) is watching the Governor from D.C. Pete has an interest in Alaska, so it is natural that he would be following the Governor's progress. In September, Pete said that he thought Sarah Palin would win the Governor's race (don't know if he saw Democratic polling data or what). Pete has served as Senator Daschle's Chief of Staff, and is now Senator Obama's Chief of Staff. Senator Ted Stevens loves Pete as the Senator and I had a long discussion one night about Pete at a fundraising dinner. Might be worth the Governor's time to visit with Pete when she is next in D.C. Pete wants to help Alaska however he can and he has tremendous influence in the Senate Democrat Majority. In fact, Pete was thinking seriously of retiring after Daschle was defeated but the Senate Democrats recruited Pete to help Senator Obama learn the ropes in D.C. and the Senate. I can scrounge up a phone number, if you like. Chris

Subject: RE: Interview/ Notes from interview with Bob Tkacz Governor I apologize for not catching you sooner regarding the Mixing Zone issue. Rep. Paul Seaton has a bill that would essentially establish the previous regulations for mixing zones into state law. Right now, the Dept. Environmental Conservation has new regulations pending before the federal EPA for final approval that would allow permitting for mixing zones in areas that do not impact salmon streams. Bob Tkacz is notorious for mischaracterizing people's positions and how they testify. Lynn Kent, DEC Director of Water Quality, has been doing a great job of keeping my office informed about our administration's position on Mixing Zones and Seaton's bill. To date, our position has been to request the opportunity for the new Commissioner to take office in order to establish a final position. In the meantime, Bob is upset because we are not supporting passage of Seaton's bill to "undo" the regulations that are pending review at EPA. Bob is also writing that I testified in opposition to Rep. Les Gara's bill that would transfer Habitat back to ADF&G. This is also a total falsehood. Bob got in my face last week regarding your campaign statements about Habitat... and even argued with me about my own recollection of watching you talk about the issue at two different candidate forums (ACV and UFA). I was there...and I clearly recall you stating that you wanted to see how things are working and get more information before taking a final position. I will ask both Tom Irwin (DNR) and Larry Hartig (DEC) to provide recommendations for a position regarding mixing zones. Denby...that includes you, too. Thanks!! John Bitney

It continued to be "fast busy" until I borrowed Todd's cell phone & finally got through on that phone. I just spent 20 minutes with Bob. Quite unpleasant. He's quite insistent that I'm breaking a campaign promise re: Habitat, though I repeated my explanation that it's very unfair to Alaskans for me to claim I'll keep Habitat in DNR, in perpetuity, when I've only had my DNR Commissioner on board for one week, (and I've only been in office a couple of months) hence we haven't had time to fully consider whether the move should have taken place in the first place - and whether (or when) it should be considered to be moved back. He said I blew the opportunity to change Murkowski's executive order on the move, so I "obviously am in line with Murkowksi on this", and obviously am breaking a promise, and how could I not know if I'd veto Gara's bill on this, or not? He didn't let up.

Then he jumped into Mixing Zones, saying it's so odd that I'm "consistent with Murkowski on that one, too". I did not know what he was talking about. I told him I do NOT support lessening the protections on our salmon spawning grounds - and that former DEC Commish. Ernesta Ballard's move with mixing zones was not something I could support and I've still not heard good reasons why she pushed for the mixing zones - Bob totally tripped me up by claiming my administration just testified in support of mixing zones, by testifying against Paul Seaton's bill that would have ensured more habitat protections. He said my staffer, Lynn (?), just testified on the bill this week, I believe. I repeated that I do NOT support lessening the restrictions that would result in dangers to the fish grounds - he didn't let up on that and made sure I knew he was recording me. So, Bitney, (he says you know of the administration's testimony), I do need to know what went on with any testimony this past week. I have not been informed of what is before the legislature on mixing zones. And before I talk to Bob in the future, I need to know what admin, has done on fish issues in the recent

Subject: NYTImes/Gas Pipeline

Tom Irwin, Pat Galvin, Bruce Anders, Joe Balash (on the phone), and the DC office met today to discuss FERC strategy. Based on the discussion, we concluded that FERC staff should be re-acquainted with our concerns and asked to do something about it. This would lay the foundation for the Governor's meeting with the FERC Chairman next week. He probably won't agree to amend the FERC report. However, he will have numerous opportunities on Capitol Hill and elsewhere to correct the record and should be asked to do so. This same strategy would be applied to the Department of Energy, where Secretary Bodman h a s also made a negative statement. Hopefully, there will be a staff level meeting as well at the Vice President's office. Regarding my discussion with FERC staff, they minimized the negative connotation in the key sentences of the last paragraph of their report and pointed to the final sentence about the State's forging ahead. My response consisted of three parts: the previous contract was not viable for several reasons; we u n d e r s t a n d the national interest in commercializing North Slope gas; and the Governor h a s a plan which will soon be announced. We agreed that the media had contributed to the negative interpretation. This discussion ended amicably, and we agreed to keep talking to each other as the pipeline issues evolve. As a separate matter, Meg, Bruce Anders, and I should talk further - Bruce and I spoke today - about how to project Alaska's message to the DC and national media.

Juneau Journal With New Pipeline Plan, Alaska's Governor Enters Precarious Territory Charles Mason for The New York Times Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska greeting her h u s b a n d , Todd, a champion snowmobiler, after a race in Fairbanks. [input] By WILLIAM YARDLEY Published: Februaiy 19, 2007 JUNEAU, Alaska, — The new administration of Gov. Sarah Palin h a s been full of firsts. Ms. Palin, a Republican, is Alaska's first female governor and, at 42, its youngest. She held her inauguration in frosty Fairbanks, a first that suited her conservative supporters b u t slighted the traditional host, this rainy, remote and less Republican state capital. She also appears to be the only governor in history whose spouse is a champion snowmobile racer and a former Arctic oil worker,

and is widely referred to as First Dude. Now, two m o n t h s after taking office, Ms. Palin wants to become the first Alaska governor to deliver what many others have sought without success: construction of a $30 billion pipeline to transport natural gas from the state's North Slope to markets in the lower 48 states. It is an enormous project that could strengthen Alaska's energy-based economy for decades to come, while also, according to some estimates, supplying 7 percent of the nation's natural gas annually. But pulling off this first is shaping up to be more complicated. Elected by a wide margin after promising to bring "new energy" a n d "transparency" to the pipeline project, Ms. Palin took office in December a n d immediately backed away from the negotiations that her predecessor, Frank H. Murkowski, had been pursuing with the three major energy companies t h a t control m u c h of the land where gas would be developed. Ms. Palin h a s long criticized those negotiations as back-room dealings whose extensive incentives and tax breaks would have benefited the energy companies, BP, Exxon Mobil and ConocoPhillips, far more than they would have Alaska. "Don't get me started," she said in an interview in her Capitol office on Thursday. So next month, Ms. Palin intends to introduce the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act, a bill that would open the bidding to new players, as well as the old ones. She says her plan would ensure new jobs a n d access to gas for state residents. She also says that whoever gets to control the pipeline m u s t allow for its potential expansion so that other gas developers can u s e it at reasonable prices, t h u s encouraging more development. The new plan, however, would delay a formal agreement until next year at the earliest, and it would be another decade, until 2018, before the pipeline was in operation. Ms. Palin won votes last fall for vowing to take j u s t such steps, b u t in taking them, she h a s stirred concern beyond Alaska at a time when the Bush administration says it wants to develop new sources of energy. In a report to Congress last month, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said "the schedule for an Alaska gas pipeline h a s slipped considerably." The state's senior senator, Ted Stevens, a Republican famous for bringing big projects home, h a s openly expressed worry. And on Tuesday, Rex W. Tillerson, the c h a i r m a n and chief executive of Exxon Mobil, one of the companies that hopes to build the pipeline, said: "I don't really know where we are. I don't think it looks like Alaska knows where it wants to go, either." Ms. Palin dismissed that talk. But next week, when she attends a National Governors Association meeting in Washington, she plans to visit Alaska's Congressional delegation and meet with officials at Exxon Mobil a n d the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, among others. Besides putting minds at ease, she said, she wants to broaden the appeal of the project with the goal of gaining leverage in negotiations. "This project is so m u c h bigger t h a n Alaska a n d Alaska's interests," Ms. Palin said. "This is for the nation. This is to supply domestically safe sources of fuel. We're going to be able to do that. We should be leading in a national energy plan." The report by the energy commission suggested j u s t such thinking, although it had a more urgent tone t h a n in earlier a s s e s s m e n t s a n d sprinkled in some

11/10/2009 PRA_GSP01_0000304

Page 4 of 5

skepticism. "The main obstacle to progress on an Alaskan gas pipeline is the failure to resolve state issues necessary before a project sponsor will commit to go forward," the report said. "The fresh competitive approach announced by the new governor m u s t be successful if Alaska gas is to be part of the nation's energy supply solution in the coming years." Steve Rinehart, a spokesman for BP Exploration Alaska, which controls the most land in the area expected to be developed first, said that with natural gas prices projected to stay relatively high and oil production on the North Slope declining, "the time h a s come to bring that gas to market." "It makes sense economically," Mr. Rinehart said. "It makes sense for the life of this oil field." But in the past, aides to Ms. Palin said, the big energy companies refused to commit to expanding the pipeline or to allow outside companies to use it for reasonable fees. Mr. Rinehart disagreed. "We were ready to address those issues," he said, "but the process stopped." Critical to pushing a plan through is the state's 60-member, Republicancontrolled Legislature. Mr. Murkowski, a former United States senator, clashed with state lawmakers over his pipeline plan through his final days in office. Ms. Palin, by contrast, h a s echoed their concerns about giving away too much in tax breaks to the energy companies. "What the governor h a s is a lot of credibility with the public," said State Representative J o h n Harris, the speaker of the House. "She's been a breath of fresh air, in my opinion." Lyda Green, president of the Senate, said Ms. Palin came to office without the intimate knowledge of the energy and financial industries that Mr. Murkowski had. But "she's a very quick study," Ms. Green said. "She h a s good people around her." Ms. Palin h a s brought back some top staff members who left in protest over how Mr. Murkowski had been conducting the pipeline negotiations. Now she w a n t s them to help her complete the deal that Mr. Murkowski never could. "We are crafting this whole process with our a r m s open, even for Exxon," Ms. Palin said. "Come on in and let us know what you have in terms of a proposal to commercialize Alaska's natural gas."

MEMORANDUM

STATE OF ALASKA Office of the Governor

TO: Governor Sarah Palin FROM: Joe Balash

DATE: 2/20/07 TELEPHONE: 907-465-4022

SUBJECT: Briefing paper regarding meeting with the Alliance on 2/21/07 Founded in 1979, the Alaska Support Industry Alliance represents companies and organizations that provide goods and services for Alaska's oil, gas and mineral industries. There are 400+ member companies who provide 30,000 Alaskan jobs. The Alliance is a 501(c)(6) trade association and has chapters in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Kenai. The Alliance hosts the annual Meet Alaska conference and trade show in Anchorage — which you addressed in January. They conduct an annual Juneau fly-in, which is why they are in Juneau this week. They also engage in direct lobbying on industry issues. Last year, they were able to generate significant pro-industry testimony during the hearings on PPT and will likely play a leading role in testimony on AGIA. As an organization, they support a highway project as opposed to an LNG project. Their 2007 Legislative Priorities are: 1. Legislative Approval of a Gas Fiscal Contract which: • • • • • Encourages earliest possible construction of a pipeline Promotes use of Alaskan contractors and suppliers Guarantees fair and open competition for pipeline work Provides for in-state access to supplies Ensures 3 rd -party access and expansion capability

2. No reconsideration of PPT adopted in 2006 3. Promote a positive business climate for oil and gas reinvestment • They cite the need to reinvest $60 billion over the next 10 years to sustain base production and pursue new exploration and development

4. Fiscal Responsibility — advocates for a fiscal plan now, while surpluses are in effect

PRA GSP01 0000313

5. Support legislation that promotes the development of a highly skilled and globally competitive resident Alaskan workforce that will meet the current and future needs of the oil, gas and mining industries. 6. Oppose any legislation pre-empting or undermining the regulatory and permitting process for the Pebble Mine project.

The Alliance is governed by a 14-member board of directors with 5 executive officers. The president of the organization is Jim Palmer, a private consultant who previously worked at BP. One of his leading clients is Pioneer Oil. The executive director is Paul Laird, former spokesman for BP. These board members are likely to be very sympathetic to the arguments put forward by the Producers on AGIA. You may even get some criticism with regard to your comments on Exxon, Point Thomson, and the content of your speeches. Don't let them lay blame at your doorstep. Make sure they understand that you have met with the Producers, you have asked them to participate constructively in the formation of AGIA, and their response has been to try and get you back off. Looking at their state priorities/goals for a fiscal contract, you share many of the same goals. AGIA is designed to accomplish each of those: early construction, Alaska hire, in-state use, competition for jobs, and access for explorers.

Date: Thu, 22 Feb 2007 09:17:44 -0900 To All: Thank you for your gracious support of my efforts to serve as Alaska's Commissioner of Fish and Game, as well as your later support for me becoming Deputy Commissioner of Game. The overwhelming response from you and hundreds of others was both flattering and humbling. As you are all aware, I have said from the beginning, that if the Governor desired to utilize my knowledge, skills, and abilities to assist with her "abundance management" agenda, I would give her my very best effort. While I would have been quite honored by the opportunity to see the Governor 's agenda through to fruition, the human dynamics of the selection process simply didn't work out that way. As most have probably heard by now, two long-time ADFG managers have been selected to fill the positions. The Governor selected Denby Lloyd for Commissioner, and Lloyd later selected Ken Taylor for Deputy Commissioner of Game. The Governor did not contact me regarding these selections, but I am confident she and her advisors did what they deemed best for the state and its fish and game resources. I know that the choices made by the Governor and her staff are disappointing to those who had hoped to see more immediate evidence of the positive changes toward the management for abundance the Governor has promised. Nevertheless, from the beginning, all have agreed to work diligently to identify and correct the ADF&G policies associated with the failure to maintain our big game populations. Given that the Governor's chosen leadership now has that responsibility, our immediate task is to work constructively with them to attain the common goals we share with the Governor, even though the approach to success seems more difficult than many would have prescribed. All are aware of the Governor's commitment to changes at ADF&G. Now that she has selected her leadership, perhaps all should postpone judgment until they have had an opportunity to see what it is the new leadership is proposing. Everyone is keenly aware that we will have yet another

vulnerable crop of calves and lambs coming within the next couple of months. If the Governor's leaders are going to implement the sweeping changes for which all are so hopeful, it will be quite evident within the next few weeks. Although our collective efforts have been taxing for all of us (and personally trying for me), the "silver lining" for me is the affirmation that the "Abundance Agenda" is alive and well in the hearts of Alaskans. In making the wonderful acquaintance of all of you, I have come to realize that this abundance vision (that the sportsmen and subsistence users hold so dear) is far bigger than I or any other potential appointee. Your voices have been heard, and I am more convinced than ever that this hope of a return to Constitutional resource management will one day be realized, though more likely because of your work than because my individual efforts. Nonetheless, to the extent the Governor and ADF&G allow it, I will continue to work in any way I can to assist with the implementation of the abundance management vision. Unless the Governor proposes a more productive alternative, any further efforts on my part will come from my current position with USDA's Wildlife Services Program. Again, I thank you all! Your passion for your principles and your commitment to constitutional management have been truly inspirational. I apologize to any I may miss with this letter, but I only have email addresses for the 200 or so individuals who contacted me directly. To protect individual privacy, you have all been "blind cc'd" this communication. Please convey my appreciation to those within your acquaintance who were so supportive, yet may not receive this message because I do not have their email address. Sincerely, Corey Rossi

Blocking economic development is not an honor

Published: February 22, 2007

Alaska needs a new wildlife refuge like it needs a hole in the head. It already has 58 million acres of designated wilderness and another 90 million acres of parks, wildlife refuges, preserves and other conservation units.

That's out of a total land area of about 365 million acres - approximately 41 percent of Alaska's land area is largely locked away in the hands of government agencies of one kind or another.

The big rush is on by opponents of Pebble Mine, who would do anything to block development of one of the world's largest mineral deposits and foreclose thousands of jobs the mine could generate. Many of those jobs would go to the people

Wagoner Calls for Hayes Impeachment
Resolution Directs House to Begin Trial
JUNEAU—Sen. Tom Wagoner, R-Kenai, will introduce a resolution Monday directing the State House to begin an impeachment trial to remove indicted University of Alaska Regent James C. Hayes. "I thought long and hard before I decided to go through with the resolution to impeach Regent Hayes. I have met the gentleman, I have served with him on the postsecondary commission, I like him as a person, but when the university is put in the position that they have a regent who has been indicted by the federal government, I think that casts a pall over the whole Board of Regents and the university administration," Sen. Wagoner said. The resolution refers the matter to the House of Representatives for a trial on impeachment for the removal of Mr. Hayes from the University of Alaska Board of Regents.

8/26/2009
PRA_GSP01_0000333

Page 2 of 2

The resolution states that the Senate finds by clear and convincing evidence that Mr. Hayes has committed an impeachable offense by his unauthorized use of the University of Alaska Seal to secure funding for his personal benefit and use, and by being unable or unwilling to carry out his duties to the University of Alaska as demonstrated by his past and continuing absences from the meetings of the Board of Regents. A federal grand jury in Anchorage has indicted Mr. Hayes on multiple counts of theft, conspiracy and money laundering, charging that Mr. Hayes and his wife improperly diverted $825,000 from federal grants that were supposed to go to LOVE Social Services Center. Hayes' 8-year appointment to the Board of Regents expires in 2011, and he has stated he intends to serve out his term. "I think the right thing for him to do would be step down. If he isn't willing to do that, then I am willing to go the last step we have, and that's an impeachment resolution and start the impeachment process, because nobody should be allowed to sit in a seat when they have this much controversy surrounding them dealing with the Board of Regents. I just don't think that's right," Sen. Wagoner said.

As mentioned, the release did not include a reference to oil and gas. However, because of our previous advocacy, the workplan itself was amended slightly to include "Enhancing America's energy independence by reducing U.S. consumption of transportation fuels and sustaining domestic production in an environmentally responsible manner." I said that we would prefer a specific mention of measures to sustain and enhance domestic production of oil and gas in an environmentally sensitive manner. Committee staff is discussing this now, but thought that any reference to enhancing production would be a problem given opposition to specific energy projects in certain states. I will hear back soon on how far we can go at the staff level and will let you know. It should be noted that we are dealing with the Committee's workplan, not new NGA policy. I have attached the existing NGA policy foryour ready reference. As you will note, Sections 18.4.1 and 18.4.2 express support for measures to enhance the domestic production of oil and gas and even specifically mention the Alaska natural gas pipeline (the highway route). It is unusual for NGA policy to support or oppose specific projects. The energy policy is scheduled for reconsideration at the summer meeting of NGA. There may be an effort to amend it on an interim basis but not at the upcoming winter meeting. Even if the Governor misses the Monday meeting of the Natural Resources Committee, she will have the opportunity to talk about oil and gas/the natural gas pipeline in one of the Governors' Only Sessions. I would recommend that she make specific mention of her pipeline plans and the need, as an NGA priority, to enhance environmentally responsible oil and gas development. Given the foregoing, I don't think the Governor should be subject to any criticism. The existing NGA policy on oil and gas remains in tact for now; hopefully, the workplan can be further amended; and she should have an opportunity to talk with her colleagues about the gas pipeline and other energy issues.

Given the schedule conflicts with the resource committee time it appears as if our only hope is to seek out certain Governors to share our views. The Governor did receive an ivitation from WGA to meet with the Speaker but again it was at a time already filled. Our priority is to meet with the companies and federal officials regarding AGIA; however, I am concerned that we will get killed back home it we return from NGA without being successful at getting the Gov's colleagues to support us.

Since we have not yet caught up with each other, I have reserved a large conference room in this building for a possible press conference.

Wagoner Calls for Hayes Impeachment

Resolution Directs House to Begin Trial

JUNEAU-Sen. Tom Wagoner, R-Kenai, will introduce a resolution Monday directing the State House to begin an impeachment trial to remove indicted University of Alaska Regent James C. Hayes.

"I thought long and hard before I decided to go through with the resolution to impeach Regent Hayes. I have met the gentleman, I have served with him on the postsecondary commission, I like him as a person, but when the university is put in the position that they have a regent who has been indicted by the federal government, I think that casts a pall over the whole Board of Regents and the university administration," Sen. Wagoner said. 2

PRA_GSP01_0000342

The resolution refers the matter to the House of Representatives for a trial on impeachment for the removal of Mr. Hayes from the University of Alaska Board of Regents.

The resolution states that the Senate finds by clear and convincing evidence that Mr. Hayes has committed an impeachable offense by his unauthorized use of the University of Alaska Seal to secure funding for his personal benefit and use, and by being unable or unwilling to carry out his duties to the University of Alaska as demonstrated by his past and continuing absences from the meetings of the Board of Regents.

A federal grand jury in Anchorage has indicted Mr. Hayes on multiple counts of theft, conspiracy and money laundering, charging that Mr. Hayes and his wife improperly diverted $825,000 from federal grants that were supposed to go to LOVE Social Services Center.

Hayes' 8-year appointment to the Board of Regents expires in 2011, and he has stated he intends to serve out his term.

"I think the right thing for him to do would be step down. If he isn't willing to do that, then I am willing to go the last step we have, and that's an impeachment resolution and start the impeachment process, because nobody should be allowed to sit in a seat when they have this much 3

controversy surrounding them dealing with the Board of Regents. I just don't think that's right," Sen. Wagoner said.

I also wanted to raise an idea with you since I found out you were involved as Mayor in making Wasilla a City of Character. What if you took it a step farther and made Alaska a State of Character. You could appoint a "Character Council" of private sector people to lead the charge and in state government we could begin to focus on character traits--I've got more on this but since you've already done it on a city level I think it's the next step for you/us beyond the ethics debate.

"Today I met with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

We talked about her efforts on

the Alaska natural gas pipeline, which I believe represent the best hope for building a pipeline to bring Alaska's vast natural gas resources to the energy-consuming lower 48 states. The Commission looks forward to her

efforts on the Alaska gasline being successful and we stand ready to help to the extent we can."

As you know, IntraFish is the leading source of information for the world's seafood industry and there is a lot of interest and curiosity from people in our community about what the governor's vision is for the Alaska seafood sector, what goals she has for the industry and how she plans to make her vision a reality. As we did with Gov. Murkowski (his interview appeared in our February 2005 issue), we propose a straight question-and-answer format where the governor's responses are recorded and transcribed verbatim, with some minimal editing possible to fit the story into whatever it's assigned space will be in the April issue. We have an Alaska Focus section running in the paper that month, and her comments would be the centerpiece of the section. While I won't provide a list of questions beforehand, I will be happy to provide a guideline of sorts so she could be prepared to speak on the particular topics I would like to address. The interview should last about 20 minutes to a half hour. I would need to have it completed before the end of business on Friday, March 9, as I am off to Boston then for the big seafood show, and will have to prepare the paper for production upon my return. We also would request some photos of the governor, especially any that show her at her family's salmon farm, or in some seafood-related capacity if possible. I am in the office each day from 5:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., so feel free to call or e-mail with any questions.

William T. Taylor

William Thomas Taylor, 77, passed away at home into the arms of Jesus on Friday, Feb. 23, 2007. Bill was born in Kinston, N.C. on Oct. 1, 1929, to Kate Smith Taylor and Guy Taylor. Growing up in tough times without a father, he learned to fish and hunt to help feed his family. Bill's mother gave permission for him to join the Army at 17 to serve in the 82nd Airborne Paratrooper Division. After basic, he switched places with another soldier once he learned that every other person was being sent to Japan, so he could come to Alaska in a combat rifle team. Alaska was not as sweet as he thought it would be and he had his mother write the territorial governor to get him out of here. But it didn't take long for him to take a liking to Alaska. When he was discharged in 1949 in Montana, he used his $600 separation check to return to Alaska. Bill loved Alaska and its people. In the early days, Bill used a dog team as transportation around Fairbanks. He worked at the base power plant, as a cab owner-operator, fought forest fires, delivered coal for Johnny's Express, and joined Teamsters Local 959 around 1959. He worked for Green Construction Co. for many years and retired from the Teamsters in 1978.

Bill's passion was his family, but his other loves were fishing and dog mushing on the Yukon and Tanana rivers. The family subsistence and commercial fished in Rampart and Manley Hot Springs. Eventually they built a fish processing plant in Manley Hot Springs, Yutana Fisheries. In the 1960s Bill put together a team for sprint racing. He won many races but was proudest of winning the Open North American in Fairbanks in 1968. Bill died on the opening day of the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous. His son, Ricky, was to compete in that race for the first time. Bill was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Ann Evans Taylor; siblings, Edward, Frank, Rosa and Fred; and sons, Billy and Jimmy. He is survived by his children from his first wife, Edna: Donna El-Amin of Anchorage, Linda Taylor of Houston, Texas, and Michael Paquette of Fairbanks; his daughter, Doris Marie Lee of New Bern, N.C., his children with wife Ann, all of Fairbanks, Darlene and Click Bishop, Greg and Monica Taylor, Ricky Taylor and Sandra Taylor; mother of two grandchildren, Karen Shafford; grandchildren, Stephanie, James, Ashley, Candace, Cassandra, Cleveland, Todd and Aaron Gates, Lori Bishop and Paul Brinkman, Lisa Bishop, Marina, Alex, Hanna, Brooke and Christian; great-grandchildren, Taylor, Kadence and Isaiah; siblings, Guy Taylor of Kinston and Susie Harper of Nashville, N.C.; sister-in-law, Doris Taylor of Kinston; and sisters and brother-in-law, Ethel and Richard Smith, Paula Evans, and Elaine Long, all of Fairbanks. Visitation will be at David Salmon Tribal Hall on Thursday, March 1, at noon. A memorial service will follow at 1 p.m. A potluck at the hall will start at 5:30 p.m. Please bring memories to share. Arrangements were by Fairbanks Funeral Home and Crematory.

Palin gas line proposal calls for one-half billion dollar capital outlayGovernor Palin conducted a press conference in Washington, D. C. this morning where she is outlining her gas pipeline proposal for members of Congress and federal authorities.

The Governor says her Alaska Gasline Inducement Act will call for the state to make an initial capital outlay.

The total capital risk is estimated at a billion dollars.

Palin's Natural Gas Line Team leader, Deputy Natural Resources CommissionerMarty Rutherford says the state will share that expense evenly with a $500 Million outlay.

She says that will go toward the cost of obtaining a certificate from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Palin is scheduled to introduce her bill for the Legislature's considerationFriday.

Developers will be asked to have their proposals ready by October The goal is to select a proposal and submit a package for the Legislature' consideration by the end of January 2008 and to begin field work by that summer.

Prior to selecting a project, the process calls for a SO day public comment period.

Under her measure, applicants must provide for a minimum of five gas take off points in Alaska, commit to a local project headquarters in Alaska, and pledge to expand the pipeline project when new gas is available.

Inducements for prospective gas line developers include lower tariffs and relaxed leasing laws.

Palin is scheduled to return from Washington D. C. tomorrow. (Thursday)

Developers will be asked to have their proposals ready by October. The goal is to select a proposal and submit a package for the Legislature's consideration by the end of January 2008 and to begin field work by that summer.

Prior to selecting a project, the process calls for a 60 day public comment period.

Under her measure, applicants must provide for a minimum of five gas take off points in Alaska, commit to a local project headquarters in Alaska, and pledge to expand the pipeline project when new gas is available.

Inducements for prospective gas line developers include lower tariffs and relaxed leasing laws.

It's the headline because it's the easiest thing to capture and for the public to understand within the news today - and it was one of the new elements revealed to the media. In our next Compass, I also point out that the minimal contribution was $13b for the old proposal that didn't guarantee a permit much less a line.

Governor,

The bulk of the first month's payments under PPT (those for January production) have been received, and are about 4% higher than we had predicted. This means that our PPT models may prove to be fairly accurate, and slightly conservative, which is good.

The real test will be in a month when the companies have to make their "true-up" payment on production from April - December 2006. This is the payment on the difference between what they already paid (based on ELF) and what they now owe under PPT. We're counting on payments totalling almost $1B, so it's important our models are close to reality. So far, so good. I'll keep you posted.

2. NATURAL GAS: New Alaska pipeline plan includes $500M in state matching funds
Ben Geman, E&ENews PM senior reporter

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) will offer a proposal to the state Legislature on Friday to spur development of the state's natural gas pipeline that will include $500 million in state matching fiinds for early project costs. Palin, in Washington this week to promote the plan, said today the proposal could breathe new life into long-stalled efforts to bring large North Slope natural gas reserves to markets in the lower 48 states. Palin and a top aide said their plan would allow the state to begin soliciting pipeline proposals by this summer. "We know we need to get off high center," Palin told reporters. "We need to progress this project because there are hungry markets for Alaska's natural gas." The project, once begun, will take an estimated 10 years before gas begins flowing. The governor envisions an open solicitation for proposals, in contrast to former Gov. Frank Murkowski's (R) negotiations with BP, Exxon Mobil Corp. and ConocoPhillips. Murkowski was unable to steer his proposal through the state Legislature. Palin previewed the bill and timeline she envisions today. Marty Rutherford, who heads Palin's gas pipeline team, said the state hopes to distribute a request for applications by June or July, with a threemonth response period. They envision early fieldwork beginning in the summer of 2008. "It is a tight time frame but we are pretty committed to it," Rutherford said. They also discussed a host of incentives aimed at reducing industry risks, as well requirements industry must meet in return. The plan will include up to $500 million in state matching funds to help the developers pay early costs such as design, engineering and environmental analysis work to obtain Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approval for the project. Beyond the $500 million, the bill includes other incentives for both pipeline developers and Alaska gas producers. Providing predictable royalty rates Rutherford said one of the upstream incentives would be changes to state oil and gas lease provisions to provide what Rutherford called more predictability in how royalty rates are determined. "Right now it is a rather complicated formula. We are willing to change that formula to be more certain for producers who commit their gas into this project," she said.

The plan would also provide additional tax incentives for producers that commit to supplying gas during the first "open season," the period in which pipeline developers solicit commitments to supply gas to the

The state would provide, for 10 years, a tax credit equal to any differences between tax rates in place during the first open season and any increases imposed by the Legislature, Palin said. "We want to ensure your profitability is insured for approximately 10 years as it relates to the state production tax," she said. Another aspect of the proposal, Palin said, will be provisions aimed at ensuring the project can be expanded to allow new gas produced to be added later. She said this was needed to tap future supplies beyond 35 trillion cubic feet of reserves that producers currently hold. Palin and Rutherford also said developers will have to provide "timelines and benchmarks" for applying for federal approval and presenting budgets. Palin said the prior negotiations suffered from a lack of certainty. The state will include five gas off-take points to help provide for state energy needs. Palin said the plan would provide "a more secure United States and more robust economy for the state of Alaska and ultimately for the nation." The plan also addresses work force issues, such as steps to provide jobs to Alaskans on the massive project. Palin has been meeting federal officials and the state's congressional delegation to promote the forthcoming proposal. 'Very interesting' An aide to Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) said the senator is behind Palin and hopes the plan works. Stevens' office also provided a transcript of a brief interview Stevens gave to Alaska Public Radio yesterday, in which he called the idea of the state providing up to $500 million in up front funding "very interesting." Palin met Monday with FERC Chairman Joseph Kelliher. "We talked about her efforts on the Alaska natural gas pipeline, which I believe represent the best hope for building a pipeline to bring Alaska's vast natural gas resources to the energy-consuming lower 48 states," he said in a prepared statement after the meeting. A FERC spokeswoman cautioned that this did not represent an endorsement of Palin's plan, but that Kelliher is pleased that there is progress being made. FERC, in a report to Congress last month, expressed concern about the state's progress on the project. The report noted that over the past year the schedule has slipped considerably and that prospects of an application are more remote than a year ago. "The fresh competitive approach announced by the new governor must be successful if Alaska gas is to be part of the nation's energy supply solution anytime in the coming years," the report states. Palin said she is meeting today with Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman to discuss the plan. Bodman, in a letter to Alaska officials last year, expressed concern about the lack of progress on the project. He warned that opportunity for Alaskan gas to serve U.S. markets could be "overtaken" by liquefied natural gas imports if the Alaskan resources are not perceived as viable.

Subject: Governor's Meeting with Deputy Secretary Scarlett/Brief Summary

Below is a brief summary of the issues discussed in Governor Palin's recent meeting with Deputy Secretary of the Interior Lynn Scarlett: • Natural Gas Pipeline - Marty outlined the essential components of AGIA. The Deputy Secretary was interested, but there was general recognition that Interior's authority is limited to granting a right-of-way for the gas pipeline. • State's Energy Education Campaign - We outlined the major elements of our draft energy education campaign, emphasizing the message that Alaska is ready and willing to provide secure domestic supplies of oil and natural gas to the nation. There was agreement that the State and DOI should work together as specific issues arise, such as ANWR, NPR-A, and OCS development. • Endangered Species Act/Polar Bears - We outlined the State's concerns with the existing database, the reliability of computer models, and possible impacts on human activity. There was discussion of climate change as a predicate for ESA listings. The Deputy Secretary was very much aware of the polar bear issue. She indicated that the USGS will work with the USFWS to assess the adequacy of data and methodology. • Subsistence Use - While indicating that some progress has been made, we outlined the State's concerns with the decision making process of the Federal Subsistence Board and said that the Board has failed to meet Secretarial deadlines for reviewing and modifying its decisional processes. The Deputy Secretary said that the analysis of customary trade had been slowed by pending litigation (which DOI will be discussing further with the Justice Department), that the closure regulations are almost complete, and that the internal review of FSB procedures continues. • King Cove Road - The Deputy Secretary was very familiar with this issue. We thanked her for her previous involvement. It is expected that the USFWS will support the land exchange in the event of future Congressional hearings. • State and Native Land Conveyance Process - We expressed concern that final entitlements will not be fulfilled by the deadline in the 2009 legislation and that funding cuts in the President's budget will retard the process. The Deputy Secretary said that land transfers should be completed relatively soon after 2009, with surveys some time thereafter. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Palin gas line proposal calls for one-half billion dollar capital outlayGovernor Palin conducted a press conference in Washington, D. C. this morning where she is outlining her gas pipeline proposal for members of Congress and federal authorities.

The Governor says her Alaska Gasline Inducement Act will call for the state to make an initial capital outlay.

The total capital risk is estimated at a billion dollars.

Palin1s Natural Gas Line Team leader, Deputy Natural Resources CommissionerMarty Rutherford says the state will share that expense evenly with a $500 Million outlay.

She says that will go toward the cost of obtaining a certificate from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Palin is scheduled to introduce her bill for the Legislature's considerationFriday.

Developers will be asked to have their proposals ready by October The goal is to select a proposal and submit a package for the Legislature1 consideration by the end of January 2008 and to begin field work by that summer.

I also wanted to raise an idea with you since I found out you were involved as Mayor in making Wasilla a City of Character. What if you took it a step farther and made Alaska a State of Character. You could appoint a "Character Council" of private sector people to lead the charge and in state government we could begin to focus on character traits--I've got more on this but since you've already done it on a city level I think it's the next step for you/us beyond the ethics debate.

Subject: Gas Pipeline/Vice President

As follow-up to your DC trip, I would recommend that you request a telephone call with Vice President Cheney for next week to outline AGIA and to discuss your gas pipeline meetings with Chairman Kelliher, Secretary Bodman, etc. As we have discussed, the Vice President has the lead for the Bush administration on most energy issues. I think we made substantial progress with FERC and DOE. However, for this to manifest itself in beneficial ways, I believe the Vice President must be onboard. This is particularly true with respect to our approach, which does not favor the producers but treats all potential applicants equally. I think we can expect that the call would last no more than 15 to 20 minutes and would be between you and him alone. If a call makes sense, I can do some advance work with his energy staff whom I know pretty well. On a related matter, I have suggested to Mike Tibbies that we convene an internal teleconference of appropriate State people to review the DC situation and to confirm messaging and strategy for the future, including both Congress and the federal executive agencies. We very much enjoyed working with you and Mike this week. Please note that my email address has changed. My new email address is jwkatz@alaskadc.org. Thank you .

Dear Steve Flory, Somehow I received this (your) message and now I can not, not, reply to you; and et al. First, (your) pass£, colonial, concept of "owning" Alaska's (natural) resources is truly an amazingly parochial concept and attitude, especially in this day and age. And here is exactly why: We actually own nothing of the natural world--but we do and should work hard at treating it wisely and with utmost respect and consideration in perpetuity. This acquired wisdom and respect may involve an intense 21st Century education, as well as, a thorough understanding of the Alaskan Natives' own, ages old, mature credo. This credo basically follows and results in a humble acceptance of the precious gifts presented by our land, water, air and by all the original natural inhabitants found therein. What it is not about, as you have written, is "bio-greenie"s, "Good Old Boy networks" or "Urban-Rural Divide." It is also not about politicians or department heads and it is certainly not about blatantly dissing the Governor of Alaska, in your obvious rush to arms. Your call to arms of the "Sportsmen" of Alaska totally misses the target and does nothing at all to promote unity or a better understanding of the complex and interdependant nature of all species and their individual uniqueness in this total web-of-life that exists, both in Alaska and in the wide-world out there. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to respond to you. Sincerely, Alan R. Munro

From: STEVEN Flory To: Steve Flory Sent: Thursday, March 01, 2007 7:26 AM Subject: Urgent Message to All Sportsmen!!! Fellow Sportsmen, Sarah said she would make changes, get rid of the Good Old Boy networks, and get tough with the Feds. She championed the Constitution, which states that Alaskans own the resources and should use them. She made that promise all over the state. She said, "Hold our feet to the fire". Now more than ever, we have one last chance to let the Governor and her staff know that we invested heavily in her, and we are going to hold her to her abundance management promises. A virtual conspiracy placed Denby Lloyd as her Acting ADF&G Commissioner. With supporting ethical shenanigans by the Joint Boards of Fish and Game, the Governor was handed a "list" that consisted of one name, Denby Lloyd. With callous disregard for state statute, the Joint Boards ignored the fact that the law directed them to provide "a list of qualified persons", from which the Governor was to chose.

sad commentary on the Governor who campaigned for transparency in government, higher ethical standards, and changes in the status quo. Now Lloyd has selected a "bio-greenie", Ken Taylor, as his Deputy of Game. You heard it right, the same Ken Taylor that brought us Knowles' wolf neutering fiasco, and helped reintroduce wolves into Yellowstone (see the attached document for his full list of "accomplishments"). We cannot wait! Our moose populations are crashing around us, and Federal intrusion is at an all time high! This may be the last chance we have for the next generation to enjoy the life style that Alaskan's live for - an Alaska where wildlife abundance is the rule, not the exception. Candidate Sarah lifted the hopes and sprits of Alaskans and crossed the "Urban-Rural Divide" with her promise to restore game populations to the shining star they were before political correctness crept in and captured our ADF&G. She has written us the check of hope, it is now time to present that check to Governor Sarah for payment. There is one more chance to send her a message that you want changes. On Friday, March 2 at 3:30 P.M. the Legislature's Resource Committees take up the confirmation hearings for Denby Lloyd and others. Call your legislators and ask them to vote NO on Lloyd's confirmation. If they do, the Governor can begin an honest process and request the Joint Boards to rethink their "list" definition. We Alaskans who elected Sarah Palin Governor deserve no less. Now is the time to call and/or email your Legislators today and let the will of the people be heard!

Senators Stedman, Huggins to Promote Alaska Gas Line in Nation's Capital
Discussion with Vice-President's Staff, FERC Commissioners Planned
(JUNEAU) - Senate Finance Committee members Sen. Charlie Huggins (R - Rural MatSu/Chugiak) and Sen. Bert Stedman (R - Sitka) are traveling to Washington D.C. this weekend to attend the Energy Council meeting. Their mission next week is to discuss Gov. Sarah Palin's Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA) and other Alaska energy issues with state and national leaders. Energy Council is a group of state lawmakers from energy producing states that come together to discuss and promote energy issues in the nation's capital. The event brings Stedman and Huggins together for a series of meetings with the VicePresident's Deputy Assistant for Domestic Energy Policy, Federal Energy and Regulatory Commission (FERC) Commissioners, members of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and Alaska's Congressional Delegation. "Governor Palin's trip to Washington last week to discuss her AGIA was a success," said Huggins. "Energy Council is the perfect way to follow up and reinforce her positive message that Alaska is ready to negotiate with companies interested in building a gas pipeline." "Now that Governor Palin has released her Alaska Gasline Inducement Act, our gasline tops the

Both senators will play a key role in reviewing the AGIA bill. Sen. Stedman co-chairs the Senate Finance Committee and sits on the Resources Committee, while Sen. Huggins chairs the Senate Resources Committee and sits on the Finance Committee.

I am aware you applied for the Bar Association, as did several other applicants. Dr. McLean proved to be the best candidate to fill the vacancy on this particular board. I believe his community involvement, professional experience, and open and objective views of the Alaska Bar and the Alaska judicial system made him my first recommendation for Governor Palin's consideration. He does not have an agenda. He does not have any preconceived ideas about the board. Dr. McLean comes in with an open mind, a passion for law, and a willingness to serve the state of Alaska. I will let his resume speak for itself. I sincerely appreciate your interest in serving the state of Alaska and the Bar Association. Governor Palin asked that I convey her appreciation also.

Please email of fax his vita. I assume you know that I wrote you to ask that I be appointed. I apologize that I cannot give you a big check. Can you imagine how much money we have spent and the emotional effort that we have expended, Sarah? I can tell you that I am very saddened that I feel that we get no help at all. I do not observe per your "Governor Palin Fills Board and Commissions":". .. their selfless efforts to share their expertise and knowledge with the rest of the state." I observe only those who are purveyors of the status quo getting any appointments. Please make sure that I am "all wet." Do you really believe that my husband has flunked a three day essay test of minimal competency 31 times over a 23 year period and that he should have been denied reciprocity for 17 years? Tom and I know that ethical people do not take a person's money once without a thought of helping the person. If an attorney who is licensed in any of the about 25 states that have reciprocity with Alaska wants to be licensed here all he/she has to do is pay $1,000 and submit paperwork. My husband and I live here and should have at least as equal rights as those who have never landed on our soil. We have fewer. Alaska is owned by the 499/2,856 Alaska Active Out of State who are members of the most powerful law firms in the U.S. What about Alaska? I would have thought that there would have been articles this week about Commissioner Notti's appointment and the $37,250,500,000 pot of money that we own as Alaskans. The fact that very little if anything is written at any time in our media about Alaska Permanent Fund is a

8/25/2009

profound example of the fact that Alaska is owned by interests outside Alaska. There should be publicity constantly about it. Please check http://www.apfboardconfirmation.org for 493 pages of research about what Alaska Permanent Fund Board really does. I have asked that Alaska Permanent Fund Board members' yearly APOC Financial Disclosure Statements be posted online but to date APOC has not decided to do this. That would be a step in the right direction. I know that "Politics is the art of the possible." You, Governor Palin, cannot change the world. I know you are doing your best but I could have done a really good job on Board of Governors Alaska Bar Association. I really am sad that you could not have seen your way clear to appointing me. I did want to give you a check but I have two sons in private medical schools and two other children in private colleges. We spend any other money we have on Tom's effort to be licensed to practice law in Alaska. I hope to get Dr. McLean's resume tomorrow. I would like to know Dr. McLean but I am tired of being the focus of everyone's hatred just because I tell the truth.

C B C N e w s <file:///C:/news/credit-html> The Yukon's White River First Nation is in A l a s k a this week trying to negotiate a separate deal for a right-of-way should a natural gas pipeline be built d o w n the Alaska Highway. T h e First Nation, based in Beaver Creek near the Alaska border, m a d e its pitch Thursday at a hearing of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation C o m m i s s i o n in the state capital of Juneau.

Connie Larochelle said the First Nation has m e m b e r s in the Y u k o n and Alaska and is willing to negotiate a deal with pipeline developers. "We do know, for example, that where the pipeline enters into Alaska we do have a mass grave site in that proximity and we also have a fish camp close to the Alaska/Canada border," Larochelle said. "We would highly encourage anybody that is contemplating putting a project through White River First Nation to negotiate a consultation protocol so that a n y impacts can be mitigated or avoided altogether," Larochelle a d m i t s invitations sent by the First Nation to the oil companies three years ago asking for consultations w e r e not well received, but she says that's because the First Nation also wanted the companies to pay for the negotiations. Larochelle said the First Nation has sent a letter to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and meetings are being planned. T h e proposed Alaska Highway pipeline would carry gas f r o m Alaska's North Slope through the Y u k o n to markets in the south.

Denby's Game Guy - "Taylor-made" for a Wildlife Disaster
• Mr. Taylor's ultimate claim to fame was his intense personal satisfaction with his important role in moving Canadian wolves into Yellowstone National Park. • At a conference in Homer with Deborah Williams' group (now known as the Alaska Conservation Voters), Mr. Taylor recounted his efforts to aid the restoration of wolves to Yellowstone National Park including the line, "I cried when the wolves were released at Yellowstone". Very progressive, Ken! Now every hunter in the whole country is crying over this unmitigated disaster. • Mr. Taylor, an active liberal, was an enthusiastic supporter and campaigner for Democrat Fran Ulmer's unsuccessful run for governor. • In Fairbanks, from about '85 to '91 (or so) he had dismal performance. His penchant for playing golf and chasing "the good life" sent him on the National and International meetings circuit to the point that the Fairbanks staff referred to him as "The Vacancy Factor". • Mr. Taylor's tenure at Region III in Fairbanks followed a stint as one of the worst area biologist's in corporate memory. He was assigned in Dillingham (Mulchatna Caribou herd, etc.) where he distinguished himself by never having any data for the Board (or probably the Region) on population dynamics or changes. He virtually sat in the chair and accomplished nothing. • As the management coordinator in cahoots with Chris Smith (ultra greenie and "anti" sympathizer), he made sure Bob Stevenson, one of arguably the best five

wolf biologists in the world was taken out as the Department's wolf expert and re-assigned as an area biologist. The new wolf guy was a much better "yes" man. • Taylor was "responsible" for decisions during the Department's GMU 20A wolf control efforts and could have easily avoided the confrontation with Gordon Haber, which put Gordie on the evening news after the Dept. muffed efficiently killing a wolf in a snare with the cameras rolling. • In the 1990s, Taylor worked for some time as the Deputy Director of the Division of Wildlife Conservation under his CSU college buddy and longtime friend Wayne Reglin. Among his notable achievements, he can be credited (at least in part) with the Department's disastrous wolf sterilization program. • He was later appointed Director of Habitat under Tony Knowles and was at the helm during the time they really got into trouble. There were eyewitness accounts of Habitat staffers throwing pizza parties to celebrate their victories in shutting down commercial/industrial endeavors. Murkowski subsequently moved Habitat to DNR to neutralize the Division's radical environmental gang's ability to stifle industry/development. • Throughout his career, Taylor was uniformly known as a worthless supervisor by those he supervised, except for the habitat folks whom he let do anything the regional Habitat Supervisor wanted to do.

I was glad that David Gottstein made it. My plane was diverted to Yakutat, but I heard the press conference via the internet and watched the Gavel to Gavel re-play last evening. Please pass on my congratulations to Governor Palin and your team. The presentation was clear and strong, and Backbone II commends all of you on the package you have assembled. We will meet today and review the details of the legislation. We plan to attend the Town Hall meetings this evening, and you can count on our support for legislative passage this session.

Kris Perry to the rescue! Thanks Kris - great solutions here. Kris Perry <kris_perry@gov.state.ak.us> wrote:
That is what she proposed. She's never been on payroll. Currently her only role is as the Governor's designee as Chairperson of the Commission. I came up with a solution that will work w/the Statehood Commission and hopefully minimize any hard feelings. Since this office will be managing the project, I will become the Governor's designee, thereby replacing the Chairperson on the commission. This should minimize anyone feeling like they've been replaced by a "peer" in the community. I spoke to Linda Perez and she gave the "all clear". I think it's a positive solution and it makes sense. Current staff is Patty Swenson with Commerce and she supports both the Coin Commission and the Statehood Commission. However, there are changes planned. To maximize efficiencies, staff support will occur with existing staff out of the Governor's office. I'm working with Emil on this. Ivy and Meg are both aware. We'll get this finalized early this week.

Kris - the memo from Gail Phillips says she's paid $100g/yr as ex. dir. of Celebration Commission... and a raise of $10g next yr... and another raise of $10g the yr. after. ??? Is this accurate? It sounds absolutely ridiculous that the state is/was paying a full time employee for this, along with budgeting for a PR firm to organize the event? Is she off payroll yet?

In re-reading Sunday's AGIA editorial, I see where it does say in one spot"... even the governor admits the tax rate is too high. ..." That should have said,"... even the administration admits the tax rate is too high...." It was based on my interview with Patrick on Thursday, and the error (attributing it to the governor instead of the administration) came from writing the editorial while sitting in the Juneau airport for two days last week and phoning in my corrections. We changed the first reference two paragraphs earlier to "administration" but missed the second reference (the copy editor on the other side of the phone misunderstood my dictation of changes to the editorial). Sorry for the misstated atribution. Larry

Subject: Re: larry persily

thanks! Joseph R Balash <joe_balash@gov.state.ak.us> wrote: The short, sweet answer on PPT is that you are not convinced 22.5% is too high for gas. Members of your administration have said that it may be-according to work that has been done to date. That's because there is very little up-front investment necessary at Prudhoe Bay to develop gas. Where the gas field infrastructure needs to be developed (and can be deducted and credited), PPT may very well be OK. On the second question: if the producers don't show up, we continue on the path towards certification. We don't absolutely need to have their gas commitments at the open season. Would the project be better off and more certain to be sanctioned? Yes. But gas can be committed to the project after the open season. The $500 million isn't exactly a "gift". The partner(s) will have to match us. But, more importantly, we will be getting partners on terms that are worth billions to the State in the future. In a sense, we are spending $500 million now to get $Billions later. Your Gas Team will be able to demonstrate these benefits quantitatively in its presentations to committees. Joe

Also, I've heard over and over that we don't have good answers to the following simple questions: What to do if producers won't commit to gas during first open season? ("Throw a party and no one shows up?") (Especially if we don't have any intention of having to litigate.) AND - the other question: if the project's so economic, and producers don't need nor want the $500 million then why are we "gifting" that, especially after I slammed Murk. for months for conceeding too much.

I suggest that In the first meeting, after we talk about the new energy in Alaska, we stress that the Governor has established a fair, open process that could include the Canadian route or the LNG route. We need to let them know that they could positively or negativlely affect the economics of a Canadian route and consequently any benefit to them. Also it is likely the successful applicant would be doing all or part of the negotiations. We do have a good opportunity to set the foundation for their thinking and a positive relationship.

Governor Palin Disappointed Over Passage of W a t e r e d - D o w n Ethics Bill Calls it "Politics As Usual"

March 5, 2007, Juneau, Alaska - Governor Sarah Palin criticized the failure of the Senate to adopt Senate Bill 19 amendments to further tighten ethics legislation. Today, the Senate considered amendments and passed SB 19, Senator French's ethics bill. The Governor's office requested that some amendments be offered today on the Senate Floor t h a t would incorporate some measures from the Governor's ethics bill. All but one amendment was rejected by the Senate Majority Working Group on a straight-line caucus vote. "I am very disappointed in the process," said Governor Palin. "My office, in conjunction with Dave Jones from the Department of Law, has worked hard and cooperatively to come up with meaningful and comprehensive ethics reform. As I stated earlier in the session, I do not have any pride in authorship but I can not j u s t stand by allowing lip service to be paid to ethics reform while Alaskans stand to lose." Governor Palin continued, " I n one example, my office requested the Senate to adopt an amendment that would prevent executive branch employees from accepting any gift from a registered lobbyist. The amendment would not impact the legislature. I feel very strongly that if we are really going to clean things up, we must remove the ability of those individuals who are paid to influence decision makers from providing gifts. To not adopt the provision is absolutely outrageous." "My hope was that the Senate Majority was following our lead in setting politics aside and doing

what is best for Alaska," said Governor Palin. It appears today, some politicians are more interested in politics as usual." ###

Subject: MSNBC Interview for Tomorrow morning MSNBC is doing a segment on listing polar bears as Endangered Species. It begins at 9 : 3 0 a m (East Coast time). On the program, they will have the World Wildlife Fund. Producers wanted to know if anyone from the State would be interested in joining in on the discussion since we oppose the listing. The alternative is to provide a statement (I did forward the Governor's letter to Secretary Kempthorne so they understand the rationale behind our thinking). Are any of you interested? It would be great to be a part of it. We could certainly bring the AGIA into it, in that at a time when no human interaction is impacting the bears, we need to provide a safe, secure energy supply for the nation and listing the polar bears could disrupt that n e e d . © Need an answer soon, please....

I tried earlier this morning to reply from the Alaska Airlines jet via my Blackberry, but since the reply was to your yahoo account I received a form letter response that the account is not used any longer.

Anyway, yes Ken has been offered and has accepted the job. The assertions in the "taylor made" email are an unfortunate smear campaign. If at some point you would like detailed rebuttal, we can provide that. But, in summary, Ken is very highly regarded by wildlife management and land use management professionals in Alaska (e.g., Tom Irwin) and he will be a true asset to us in a wide variety of arenas including intensive management.

Various mainline hunting groups have called to assure me that they are not involved in Mr. Flory's efforts; several have even gone so far as to remind me that Mr. Flory is a convicted sex offender who at least one would banish from his association if he could. I have to say I am at a loss to understand what Mr. Flory hopes to accomplish by this and the newspaper attacks on you, me and Ken. If his intent is to assure more intensive management, it is particularly ironic, given that I hope this week to present to you a plan for ramped up efforts in wolf control for the remainder of this spring.

Please let me know if you need anything further in this regard.

Thanks, DL.

PRA GSP01 0000495

RE: Fwd: Taylor_Made[l]

Page 3 of 4

* Mr. Taylor's ultimate claim to fame was his intense personal satisfaction with his important role in moving Canadian wolves into Yellowstone National Park.

* At a conference in Homer with Deborah Williams' group (now known as the Alaska Conservation Voters), Mr. Taylor recounted his efforts to aid the restoration of wolves to Yellowstone National Park including the line, "I cried when the wolves were released at Yellowstone". Very progressive, Ken! Now every hunter in the whole country is crying over this unmitigated disaster.

* Mr. Taylor, an active liberal, was an enthusiastic supporter and campaigner for Democrat Fran Ulmer's unsuccessful run for governor.

* In Fairbanks, from about '85 to '91 (or so) he had dismal performance. His penchant for playing golf and chasing "the good life" sent him on the National and International meetings circuit to the point that the Fairbanks staff referred to him as "The Vacancy Factor".

* Mr. Taylor's tenure at Region III in Fairbanks followed a stint as one of the worst area biologist's in corporate memory. He was assigned in Dillingham (Mulchatna Caribou herd, etc.) where he distinguished himself by never having any data for the Board (or probably the Region) on population dynamics or changes. He virtually sat in the chair and accomplished nothing.

* As the management coordinator in cahoots with Chris Smith (ultra greenie and "anti" sympathizer), he made sure Bob Stevenson, one of arguably the best five wolf biologists in the world was taken out as the Department's wolf expert and re-assigned as an area biologist. The new wolf guy was a much better "yes" man.

* Taylor was "responsible" for decisions during the Department's G M U 20A wolf control efforts and could have easily avoided the confrontation with Gordon Haber, which put Gordie on the evening news after the Dept. muffed efficiently killing a wolf in a snare with the cameras rolling.

* In the 1990s, Taylor worked for some time as the Deputy Director of the Division of Wildlife Conservation under his CSU college buddy and longtime friend Wayne Reglin. Among his notable achievements, he can be credited (at least in part) with the Department's disastrous wolf sterilization program.

* He was later appointed Director of Habitat under Tony Knowles and was at the helm during the time they really got into trouble. There were

eyewitness accounts of Habitat staffers throwing pizza parties to celebrate their victories in shutting down commercial/industrial endeavors. Murkowski subsequently moved Habitat to DNR to neutralize the Division's radical environmental gang's ability to stifle industry/development.

* Throughout his career, Taylor was uniformly known as a worthless supervisor by those he supervised, except for the habitat folks whom he let do anything the regional Habitat Supervisor wanted to do.

Governor and everyone:

I suggest that In the first meeting, after we talk about the new energy in Alaska, we stress that the Governor has established a fair, open process that could include the Canadian route or the LNG route. We need to let them know that they could positively or negativlely affect the economics of a Canadian route and consequently any benefit to them. Also it is likely the successful applicant would be doing all or part of the negotiations. We do have a good opportunity to set the foundation for their thinking and a positive relationship.

My take away from the story was that you are pushing for what is right for regardless of what party or who the sponsor is. Lyda did get a cheap shot you have been gone for several weeks but your response was very good about phone and regular phone access.

Hi Meg, Here's a portion of the text from the May 6, 2005 full-page ad that appeared in the News-Miner and in support of the Alaska Gasline Port Authority's project: "As concerned citizens who love Alaska, we are speaking up in favor of the best and only proposal that provides maximum benefits to the state. The risk of inaction is too high. We urge you to get involved, too." Gov. (then mayor) Palin appeared in the ad, and provided her signature, along with Hammond, Hickel and Halford. I'd like to know if the governor stands by the statement that the port authority plan is the "best and only proposal that provides maximum benefits to the state," disavows that statement, or has some other comment on it.

There seems to be confusion on the answers to questions about First Gentleman and children's travel and per diem, using the King Air, TA's, per diem, and so forth. The idea is to do things right from the get-go so we don't have any questions about how we should have done it later. If AG Colberg, the designated ethics supervisor for the Governor, and Linda Perez could be available to answer these questions, hopefully confusion about what is okay and what is not okay for the First Family can be eliminated and our First Family will not need to spend time worrying about this.

FOR I M M E D I A T E RELEASE

07-049 Governor Palin Fills Vacancy on Board of Fisheries

March 8, 2007, Juneau, AK - Governor Palin today announced the appointment of Juneau resident, Larry Edfelt, to the Alaska Board of Fisheries. Edfelt previously served on the board from 1992-1997. "I am honored that someone of Larry's stature and experience has agreed to come back and serve the state again on this important board," said Governor Palin. "He's familiar with Alaska fisheries from a number of vantage points. His vision and temperament are just what this board needs." Edfelt retired from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in 1986, after a distinguished 23-year career. He served as a fisheries biologist, Deputy Director of Commercial Fisheries, and Assistant Executive Director of the Boards of Fisheries and Game before his retirement. He has also worked as a charter boat owner and operator. Edfelt is well known around Alaska for his humorous columns published in the Juneau Empire and the Anchorage Daily News. The seven members of the Alaska Board of Fisheries are appointed by the Governor, subject to legislative confirmation, to conserve and develop the fishery resources of the state. This involves setting seasons, bag limits, methods and means for the state's subsistence, commercial, sport, guided sport, and personal use fisheries, and it also involves setting policy and direction for the management of the state's fishery resources. The board is charged with making allocative decisions, while the Department of Fish and Game is responsible for management based on those decisions. Edfelt will participate as a voting member at the Board's next meeting, from March 9 t h to March 13 th in Anchorage, during which the board will take up statewide finfish and supplemental issues. If confirmed by the Legislature, Edfelt will fill the seat vacated by Rupe Andrews of Juneau, who resigned last month. ###

My understanding is that Tillerson has another presentation tomorrow before the Council on Foreign Relations and so there may be more to report. On his show today, Cary did nothing but reemphasize how little Exxon wants to be a part of this state and it's now only coming out with these statements because the Governor's asking people to step forward or stop playing. Cary was all about the facts - went on Exxon's website where it shows it's not even going to look to Alaska for natural gas until at least 2010 and beyond. All good messages / all factual information. He had Scott Heyworth and Harold Heinze as guests. All the callers were favorable, etc. Thanks, Meg

I was not present for the violation, but was the owner of the pot and received a ticket which I paid."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

07-049 Governor Palin Fills Vacancy on Board of Fisheries

March 8, 2007, Juneau, AK - Governor Palin today announced the appointment of Juneau resident, Larry Edfelt, to the Alaska Board of Fisheries. Edfelt previously served on the board from 1992-1997. "I am honored that someone of Larry's stature and experience has agreed to come back and serve the state again on this important board," said Governor Palin. "He's familiar with Alaska fisheries from a number of vantage points. His vision and temperament are just what this board needs." Edfelt retired from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in 1986, after a distinguished 23-year career. He served as a fisheries biologist, Deputy Director of Commercial Fisheries, and Assistant Executive Director of the Boards of Fisheries and Game before his retirement. He has also worked as a charter boat owner and operator. Edfelt Is well known around Alaska for his humorous columns published in the Juneau Empire and the Anchorage Daily News. The seven members of the Alaska Board of Fisheries are appointed by the Governor, subject to legislative confirmation, to conserve and develop the fishery resources of the state. This involves setting seasons, bag limits, methods and means for the state's subsistence, commercial, sport, guided sport, and personal use fisheries, and it also involves setting policy and direction for the management of the state's fishery resources. The board is charged with making allocative decisions, while the Department of Fish and Game is responsible for management based on those decisions. Edfelt will participate as a voting member at the Board's next meeting, from March 9 t h to March 13 th in Anchorage, during which the board will take up statewide finfish and supplemental issues. If confirmed by the Legislature, Edfelt will fill the seat vacated by Rupe Andrews of Juneau, who resigned last month. ###

Unknown From: Sent: To: Cc: Subject: Importance: Flag Status: Governor, Some of the biggest names in Hollywood are flying into Valdez tomorrow to begin shooting a summer blockbuster movie. Local hire, local extras, local outfitters / helicopters / boats / ERA aviation are all part of the deal. They've even hired one of Alaska's own film companies (Sprocketheads) and filmmaker Steve Rychetnik (he shot the Halcro campaign ads) to help shoot the opening see to the movie "Transformers" - Rychetnik is brilliant and they recognize his film talents. While you can't physically welcome them to the state, it would be fantastic for you to call the producer, Ian Bryce, and welcome him to Alaska and tell him how pleased and excited you are that he chose our state and is investing in our state. I guess the wild weather in Valdez has proved to be a bit trying (high winds harming a prop boat in the water), but you can tell him you've tried your best to order up good weather for this weekend. Tell him you are sorry that you can't personally say hello, but wish him the best on this film and hope to see him again, in our great state. This would provide tremendous collateral for you and for the state. Bryce produced the following films. More information follows below. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Tonight, He Comes (2008) (pre-production) (executive producer) Transformers (2007) (post-production) (producer) The Island (2005) (producer) Tears of the Sun (2003) (producer) Spider-Man (2002) (producer) Almost Famous (2000) (producer) ... aka Untitled: Almost Famous the Bootleg Cut (USA: director's cut (DVD title)) Forces of Nature (1999) (producer) Saving Private Ryan (1998) (producer) Hard Rain (1998) (producer) ... aka Flood (Japan: English title) ... aka Pluie d'enfer (France) Twister (1996) (producer) Speed (1994/1) (executive producer) The Beverly Hillbillies (1993) (producer) Rising Sun (1993) (line producer) Batman Returns (1992) (associate producer) Meghan Stapleton [meghan_stapleton@gov.state.ak.us] Thursday, March 08, 2007 1:49 PM gov.sarah@yahoo.com; Tibbies; Michael A (GOV) Leighow; Sharon W (GOV); Stapleton; Meghan N (GOV) FW: Governor High Yellow

Meg, SEE B E L O W Thank you! I suggest going to www.imbd.com and providing Gov. Palin with information on Ian Bryce (Producer) and Michael Bay (Director). Steven Spielberg is the Executive Producer and this is a DreamWorks film. It is a H U G E summer blockbuster opening on July 4th 2007 www.transformersmovie.com These guys are at the top of the food chain in Hollywood. We are shooting in Columbia Bay on March I Oth. We're basing out of Valdez. They are bringing about 50 A-list production people from LA and spending lots of money - local hire, accommodations, rental cars, ERA aviation, helicopters, boats, outfitters, clothing stores, local actors as Extras, safety teams, etc. The production company that is coordinating this whole production is Anchorage based SprocketHeads, LLC (a good word about us would be bonus!) and Steve Rychetnik - SprocketHeads' cameraman - will be shooting film along with their team. Ian and Michael are flying in to Valdez on Michael Bay's jet early Friday morning, March 9th. They leave Sunday. We are shooting the opening scene of this movie here in Alaska so Alaska will be showcased to billions of people. The weather outside of Valdez has been problematic and causing stress because we are building a prop ship on-location in Columbia Bay and are having problems getting on-location to work on it - so she can joke about taking care of the weather for them. We want them to keep them coming back and shooting in Alaska and next trip they should come to the mansion for dinner (most states do that for lead actors and celebrity producers and directors). Meg, I hope the Governor realizes this is so FANTASTIC for Alaska and Alaskans. Call me if you need anything and thank you. (I'm taking the ERA flight out to Valdez tomorrow afternoon so call me at Sprox -248-4829, cell -440-9478 and home -349-4901 if you need anything) Also please let me know when the call was made. Staying at the Best Western in Valdez Thursday night. Carolyn

Logistics meant the down-play. We didn't want to play the games of a dramatic interview and since Commissioner Galvin was the one - Donaldson can't record from Juneau to Anchorage and Channel 2 can't turn around a big story when the interview isn't available until 3:30pm. No fault of ours - just logistics, In the meantime, once we have the report, I suggest that we have a press availability that shows the facts and roll it out with the Commissioner and anyone else deemed appropriate. Donaldson and Southern both called Exxon yesterday and asked for proof of 13 tax changes - they never returned the call.

with little substantive change, and then the system was changed last year when we had high oil prices and ELF proved to be out of step with oil development economics. I said that on the royalty side, most of Exxon's production is coming from leases that have been in place for over 30 years. I also commented on Alaska as a stable government, where companies don't have to worry about terrorism or have their employees live in compounds. Finally, I mentioned that Alaska's attractiveness is demonstrated by the large investments by companies such as Shell Oil who see tremendous opportunities in Alaska without the instability seen elsewhere in the world. All wanted to paint this as signs of trouble regarding Exxon's role in a gasline or AGIA, and commented on the escalating war of words between the state and Exxon. I played that down, and said we are confident that, in the end, Exxon with recognize the opportunities Alaska offers. We are currently putting together a history of changes in our oil and gas fiscal regime, going back 40 years. When it's done, I'll send it out so we can discuss its usefulness.

i've spoken with Doug a few times - got my ear chewed on for not moving fast enough to find something for Maw. this is all amazing... the demands by so many people, i can't keep up... the whole flipping point is to get politics out of fisheries... that's why we're trying to balance this and not just plug in a single-interest individual without giving thought to the other fisheries needs. It's what I promised I'd do. sorry you're having to deal with a bunch of this, i know you're swamped too. I'm trying to get Maw on the fish board ASAP so folks will chill a bit here. The balance on that board is much more complicated than Doug is considering though. Ivy, Denby, Tib and I have been meeting on it. Bristol Bay is also clamoring for a spot on the board, as are other regions, as are the personal use fisheries folks, etc. I don't know Cramer or Martin, do I? I love 'ya Kris!!! Thanks for putting up with all of this - in addition to the "discrimination" false accusations, too. It's good to know that we know that we know that we have done NOTHING discriminatory. We have nothing to hide - and I appreciate sincerely your efforts there.

But, I did want to pass on to you that they really hope that there will be consideration for Roland Maw and Dwight Cramer on the Fish Board. Neither have permits that will interfere. They also hope that politics in fisheries management will be set aside, support for the local biologist provided, and that Denby will go down there listen - and get the fisheries straightened out.

Although I expected just a friendly individual meeting with Drue, I'm happy to take the opportunity with the larger group to walk through AGIA. Is this a group that you or other members of the gasline team met with while you were back there? Is there anything in particular I should be aware of?

And,

can I get your DC messaging material,

assuming it hasn't changed?

Herman: Governor Frank Murkowski appointed Senator Stevens to the Legislative Seat, and Stephanie Madsen to the Marine Fisheries Seat on November 8, 2004. Following is what I have as the Alaska Statue regarding this matter: Sec.16.45.020 - Alaska Statute: "The term of each commissioner of the Pacific Marine Fisheries Commission is four years. A Commissioner holds office until a successor is appointed and qualified, but the successor's term expires four years from the legal date of expiration of the term of the successor's predecessor. Vacancies occurring in the office of a Commissioner for any reason or cause shall be filled for the unexpired term, or a Commissioner may be removed from office as provided by the statues of the state concerned. Each Commissioner may delegate in writing from time to time to a deputy the power to be present and participate including voting as a representative or substitute, at a meeting of or hearing by or other proceeding of the Commission." Sec. 16.45.030 - Alaska Representatives: "In furtherance of the Compact provisions, there are three members of the Commission from the State of Alaska, appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Legislature in Joint Session. One Commissioner must be the administrative or other officer of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game charged with the conservation of the state's marine fisheries resource; another commissioner must be a member of the legislature of this state who is a member of the committee on resources; and another member must be a citizen of this state who has a wide knowledge of and interest in the marine fisheries problem." Sec. 16.45.040 - Terms of Commissioners: "The term of each commissioner of the Pacific Marine Fisheries Commission is four years. A Commissioner holds office until a successor is appointed and qualified, but the successor's term expires four years from the legal date of expiration of the term of the successor's predecessor. A Commissioner may be removed from office by the Governor upon charges and after a hearing. The term of a Commissioner who ceases to hold the qualifications required ends and a successor may be appointed. Vacancies occurring in the office of a Commissioner for any reason or cause shall be filled for the unexpired term in the same manner as for a full term appointment."

Original Message Subject: Wolves

I didn't know daily news was already publishing on wolves. Bottom line:state helicopters should be last resort, they're expensive and take opportunity from locals.

We need to pay for locals' fuel, bounty on predators, etc. Until these offers are exhausted we need more aggressive pursuit of incentives provided to those most affected by the predator problem.

Also, curious as to why Board passes buck to governor on this one but not other biological management decisions? Makes it political .

We have to act quickly on this as predators are acting quickly and rural families face ridiculous situation of being forced to import more beef instead of feeding their families our healthy staple of alaskan game. Nonsense. Unacceptable - and not on my watch.

Todd interviewed buddies who live out there... Some confirmation that state intervention isn't first choice w/the locals. But we need to incentivize here. $ for trappers included.

Original Message Subject: Wolves

I didn't know daily news was already publishing on wolves. Bottom line:state helicopters should be last resort, they're expensive and take opportunity from locals.

We need to pay for locals' fuel, bounty on predators, etc. Until these offers are exhausted we need more aggressive pursuit of incentives provided to those most affected by the predator problem.

Also, curious as to why Board passes buck to governor on this one but not other biological management decisions? Makes it political .

We have to act quickly on this as predators are acting quickly and rural families face ridiculous situation of being forced to import more beef instead of feeding their families our healthy staple of alaskan game. Nonsense. Unacceptable - and not on my watch.

Helping hands

Posted: March 8, 2007 - 2:09 pra

Remember the state senators who were disappointed about having to foot their own bill to the annual Energy Council conference in Washington, D.C.?

Well, a talk show radio host heard their story and offered to

help them out

to the tune of $500 each. Mike Porcaro of station KENI-AM in Anchorage had

some of the boys from the Senate minority - Sens. Gene Therriault, Tom Wagoner and Fred Dyson - on a show last week and pledged to help them fund their transportation costs to the oil and gas fest. Sure enough, the radio host confirmed earlier this week to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that he had signed off and sent each of them a check.

In a press conference call this morning, Therriault said he and his colleagues were in DC to spread the news about Gov. Palin's new AGXA bill on the gas pipeline and reassure the nation that Alaska was serious about getting its natural gas to market. He said he's been meeting with representatives from pipeline regulator FERC and other federal and state representatives to explain how the Legislature in Juneau will be tackling AGIA to get it worked and passed this session.

In the kudos for the Daily News department - Therriault said he's been explaining the differences between the Murkowski plan and Palin's AGIA legislation using a diagram and chart published with last Saturday's Daily News story on the bill's introduction.

Thanks for making us look good, senators.

Therriault and the Senate minority gang are attending the conference with several other Alaskan legislators from both chambers. They return next week to get started on the first AGIA hearings, among other things.

The Lt. Gov. and I are curious re: Hooper Bay community water. We want to help. For background, here's an excerpt from Sean's and my email exchange discussing our intent to help in that community: "I asked what was needed in Hooper Bay to take the next step in building that community...His response was immediate, "They need running water," he said. Franklin (Graham) said the state and federal government's approach to building pieces of the water system across a lot of years actually demoralizes people because they see something coming but it is demoralizing to have the project repeatedly put on hold. I think it might be a good first step to ask Karen Rehfeld to have one of her budget analysts look at what's been funded and installed in Hooper Bay to date; what, if anything is in next year's capital budget, and see what can be done to step it up and complete it in the next year or two. (The cost could be outrageous, but it is worth a look.) Also, I think we need to get out there since we missed the trip last month. It feels like the door of hope was opened a bit by Samaritan's Purse getting these kids building the houses with adults—community building, looking beyond themselves. Maybe we can push the door open wider with running water sooner rather than later." Karen - do you have any info, on this? Now that's room service!

Subject: Re: Traveling issues

Holy moly... those are all outlandish rumors. I think Justin likes to stir it up, as information is power for the guys on the hill. His information happens to be all wrong tho. I had a good conversation with Ted S. and George Lowe when I was in DC and told them I support Ted (I also talked to Catherine Stevens on my visit), so Justin is a few weeks off there. Ted was appreciative that I could reassure him that my plate was full as Governor and I was not planning a Senate run. Crazy talk about me recruiting anyone to run against Don. Totally not true. And Carl, even, is so totally off base about MidAmerican and any "deal cut". It's not true. These guys are giving me way too much credit - like I have my schedule so under control that I have time to conjure up more issues to tackle such as the ones Justin mentioned! As for your meeting with Don and Ted -1 just really hope they remember that I am committed to fairness and transparency with AGIA... that we realize how important the gasline is... and that we want Alaska to become more self-sufficient and self-sustaining - one way to do that is to see that the gasline is built. We will not be so reliant on the feds, then we won't be pressuring Don and Ted for $$$ to the degree we've always done in the past. And hopefully they'll know that Exxon does not have to be such stinkers to us in the press - that Exxon has a duty to develop, etc. Have a great trip! SRPamell Hi, I flew through Seattle and ran into Justin Steifel. He asked where I was headed and I told him, and also told him I'd be speaking with the congressional delegation. Since he's now lobbying on the Hill I asked him what Stevens, Young and Murkowski each had on their plates in D C so I could be better prepared for the meetings. When we got to the discussion on Sen. Stevens, Justin indicated that the Senator was entirely focused on re-election, that he was concerned about you running against him, that Young was concerned you were actively working to recruit Jim Whitaker to run against Young...he indicated that most of these theories are cooked up by Congressional staff. I told him that those were outlandish theories!! Next, I forgot to tell you what I heard at the Inaugural Ball. Carl Marrs pulled me aside and told me that the reason Exxon has been nasty in the press lately toward us is because they believe you have <srjparnell@gov.state.ak.us> wrote:

Hi Meg, I have two follow-up questions that stem from the governor's response to my earlier query about the port authority's 2005 advertisement: 1. The governor suggests in her previous response that other entities might have a better gas line proposal than what the port authority has put forward. Presumably that would have been the case in 2005 as well. So why did the governor endorse the statement in the May 2005 newspaper ad? 2. The governor says in her response that the port authority was the only entity "with terms available to the public." How was it wise to make such a strong statement of support for the port authority's proposal in the absence of information about other proposals?

Thanks much. Rod Boyce News-Miner 459-7575

Also, we will need some photos of her, preferably one of her in some sort of seafood setting, ie. handling fish or speaking with seafood industry execs; if not, whatever you can give us. Photos need to be 1 megabyte in size and jpeg format if possible.

Also, would like to schedule a meeting with Anchorage Daily News' Wesley Loy between the two since he's been asking for awhile now. He'll be looking for more policy at this point, but some more generic questions would include: I'd like to sound her out on a few major issues of high interest to fishing people including the proposed Pebble mine, offshore oil and gas leasing in Bristol Bay, and the trend toward "rationalizing" fisheries. That is, dividing open fisheries into individual catch shares for fishermen. How will the new administration work with respect to fish? For instance, past governors including Wally Hickel appointed fishery advisers with ready access to the governor. Will this continue? I'd like to hear some elaboration on this statement from Gov. Palin's State of the State address: "So, sub-cabinets will be established and existing cabinet goals will be amended, Let me give an example: We have a Fish Cabinet and basically what it's done is simply 'distribute grants.' It'll now work with Labor and Workforce Development to create new ideas on everything from employment opportunities to new seafood marketing initiatives." Finally, I might ask about her general philosophy on state budgeting, and the implications for funding Department of Fish and Game research and management. Thanks,

I have now heard back from the State Department in response to our inquiry concerning appointments to the North Pacific A n a d r o m o u s Fish Commission a n d the Bering Sea Fisheries Advisory Board.
Privileged or Personal

should send letters of resignation to t h e President for the NPAFC since the President is the appointing authority u n d e r t h e federal statute. Privileged or j's resignation letter from the BSFAB should be sent to the Secretary of State, who is the appointing authority. There are procedures if Privileged or f r e f u s e s to resign, b u t hopefully this will not be a problem. In the case of the NPAFC, the Governor should r e c o m m e n d one person, with resume, to the President. Regarding the BSFAB, t h e letter should recommend two n a m e s for the single vacancy a n d t h a t letter should be s e n t to the Secretary of State. The Governor c a n indicate her preference, b u t t h e enabling statute requires at least two recommendations for each vacancy. Because the NPAFC involves the White House, there c a n be a considerable lapse of time between recommendation and appointment. In these situations, the State Department will appoint the Governor's recommended person as an alternate pending final White House action. The replacement process for the BSFAB will go more quickly, because only t h e State Department is involved. We should copy Amanda J o h n s o n Miller at the State Department with the appointment packages for t h e two bodies. She will help coordinate a n d expedite the appointment processes. The packages should include Privileged or Person's letters of resignation.

FOR I M M E D I A T E RELEASE Governor Applauds the State Senate for Passage of Senate Bill 82

March 14, 2007, Juneau, Alaska - Governor Sarah Palin today applauded the Alaska State Senate for unanimously passing the Governor's special appropriations bill to fund oil and gas development initiatives, The measure, SB82, passed by a vote of 19 to 0. "Passage of this bill makes a statement that the Alaska State Senate and I are working together to develop Alaska's oil and natural gas resources," said Governor Palin. "I want to recognize Senate Finance Co-Chair Lyman Hoffman for leading the effort to put this bill forward, and I want to thank all Senators for their help and support." SB82 is the first appropriation bill to come to the Senate Floor this session. The fact that it provides funding for the Governor's oil and natural gas development initiatives reflects the priority of the Administration and the Legislature to develop Alaska's natural gas and bring it to market. The bill totals $34.5 million in general funds, with $33.1 million for oil and gas activities in the Departments of Law, Revenue, Natural Resources and Administration (AOGCC). The remainder is a separate, special appropriation for the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute. The bill will now move over to the House of Representatives for consideration. ###

FOR I M M E D I A T E RELEASE Governor Palin Thanks Anchorage Assembly for Unanimous Approval of AGIA Resolution

March 14, 2007, Juneau, Alaska - Governor Sarah Palin today thanks the members of the Anchorage Assembly for their unanimous approval last night of the AGIA Resolution. "Having the support of the Anchorage Assembly and Mayor Mark Begich means a great deal as move the AGIA through the State Legislature," said Governor Palin. " I t is wonderful to see that everyone is just as anxious as I am to see a gasline built and gas flowing sooner rather than later. We believe the AGIA is the right vehicle and the support of the Anchorage Assembly and Mayor Mark Begich is deeply appreciated." The Resolution, sponsored by Assembly members Dick Traini and Allan Tesche, passed unanimously Tuesday evening during its Assembly meeting. Mayor Mark Begich applauds the Resolution and looks forward to more discussions with the gasline team. "Everyone recognizes the importance of the AGIA and moving our gas to market," said Mayor Mark Begich. "I find the AGIA very promising and the concept encouraging. I look forward to more meetings with the Governor's gasline team to see how Anchorage fits into the AGIA as it moves through the process." ###

Importance: High ASMI members have been out of town, but did respond today to our request for thoughts on this afternoon's fish interviews. The following is from Ray Riutta, Executive Director of ASMI: For the Intrafish questions here is an assortment of bullets to choose from: -Highly committed to aggressive and innovative marketing of Alaska Seafood - Supports ASMI and looks forward to working with them as a spokesperson for Alaska seafood to help get out our very important messages to the rest of the world. ASMI is working on a game plan right now to do this -There is a million dollars in the Governor's budget to help ASMI continue its marketing and advertising campaigns this coming year -Proud of the fact that we have the best managed fisheries in the world in Alaska; no stocks are endangered or over fished -Sustainability is built into our state constitution and sets the stage for the way we manage our fisheries -There is no better seafood in the world than Alaska Seafood and she looks forward to working with ASMI to continue to get that word out...our seafood is sustainable, harvested in the most pristine environment on earth and most importantly, is good for you. It's pure, a natural product that is high in heart healthy Omega 3's -Very pleased with the high value that Alaska Seafood commands in the market place. It is recognition by the customer that wild Alaska Seafood is the top choice when it comes to picking seafood. -Here are a couple of items picked right from our website: -The State of Alaska recognizes seafood as a precious natural resource and the seafood industry as a vital component of the state's economy. Therefore, Alaska leads the nation in resource management, quality control and conservation to ensure that Alaska Seafood remains the World's finest for future generations. -The quality of Alaska Seafood is also determined by what it doesn't contain. Alaska's marine habitats are nearly pollution-free compared to the rest of the world. Feeding on organic marine organisms, Alaska Seafood is additive-free and provides healthful, natural vitamins, minerals, nutrients and hearthealthy polyunsaturated fats. For example, Alaska Salmon is rich in Omega-3 oils. Scientists have known for years that Omega-3 offers heart-healthy benefits, including: • • • • Helping to decrease blood lipids (cholesterol, LDL's, and triglycerides) Reducing blood clotting factors Increasing relaxation in larger arteries and blood vessels Decreasing the inflammatory processes in blood vessels

-Additionally, the Omega-3 oils found in certain types of seafood, including Alaska Salmon, have been linked to improvements in or prevention of certain kinds of cancer, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis, arthritis, asthma, certain kinds of mental illness, depression and lupus. -The preferred choice for Omega-3 consumption is from eating seafood because the fat is better absorbed by the body and it comes with many other nutrients. Many modern diets aren't high enough in Omega-3 oils to realize optimum health benefits. That's why various types of seafood should be included in weekly diets. I know that is a lot of health info but I have heard the Governor comment several times about her passion for seafood and a healthy diet and lifestyle so you may find these useful. There is a lot more at

www.alaskaseafood.orq if this is not enough. I would be happy to develop this line further if you think if of value. I also suggest you take a look at the Governor's CD that she did for the Boston Seafood show. The sound bites in there were right on target and it was very well received at the Alaska reception at the show. Speaking of the show it would be good to recognize that the two top winners at the new products showcase came from our Alaska companies: Trident Seafood for its Tataki Sockeye Salmon and, most exciting of all, Cold Smoked Halibut from Diamond Lodge Smokehouse in King Salmon Alaska. Our largest and one of our very smallest companies both came home big winners in Boston. This speaks volumes to the creativity and innovative efforts of our entire Alaska Seafood industry. The fraudulent use of our Alaska name is a problem that concerns us because we want our customers to know they are getting the real thing. We expect the federal government to enforce labeling laws in the U.S. and other countries to the same overseas. We also hope that the media will continue its watch dog role and ferret out these illegally labeled products. It is very frustrating for Alaska to produce such wonderful seafood then have someone substitute another product in its place. It cheats the customer and it cheats our seafood industry who work so very hard, often in very dangerous conditions to bring Alaska seafood to the customer. In addition, the Governor should be ready to respond to Privileged or Personal Material Redacted Privileged or Personal Material Redacted

I haven't commented on the harvest as I expect ADF&G will do that but if you need that from us please let me know.

Regarding F o x Springs - D O T P F and D E C have worked on a press release on this issue that M e g h a n has, I believe - f o l l o w i n g is an email I received f r o m Kristin R y a n this m o r n i n g hopefully this will help d i f f u s e s o m e of the negative c o m m e n t s regarding the c h a n g e - the good n e w s is the folks will still h a v e access to this public water system -

Karen D O T plans to keep the system operational for the remainder of the year (and next if need be) while the work group comes up with a permanent solution. Mary Siroky is coordinating D O T ' S efforts. So, the answer is there will be no immediate impact from the reduction. DOT will continue to operate the system for the short term (utilizing other funds) but in the future it may v e r y well be managed by someone else in the business of providing safe drinking water. We have tentatively set our first meeting for A p r i l 5th in Fairbanks. Have individuals interested in participating contact Camille Recknagle 907-269-7644 or Camille Recknaqle@dec.state.ak.us. She'll keep them posted about the topic.

Subject: Customary Trade/Subsistence

I want to make sure that you have been advised that, in the aftermath of the Governor's meeting with Deputy Secretary Lynn Scarlett, the Federal Subsistence Board has been directed to move forward with its work on customary trade policies notwithstanding the original objections from the Justice Department. We specifically asked in the meeting that this occur. So, as I understand the current situation, the FSB, pursuant to previous Secretarial directives, is working on customary trade, has almost completed its work on closure policies, and is also examining its internal decision making process to respond to State concerns about fairness and transparency. In my opinion, we should continue and even intensify the State's dialogue with the FSB on these issues. Please let me know if we can help further from this end.

Subject: Arctic Power

I met this morning with Adrian Herrera, representing Arctic Power. He said that Arctic Power's executive committee met yesterday and concluded that they should open a one person office in DC. This person would work full time on Alaska hydrocarbon issues, not just ANWR. There would be close coordination between that office, the Governor's DC office, and the Alaska Congressional delegation, as well as various interest groups. There might also be a part-time contractor who would expand AP's liaison work to include organized labor and others. I mentioned that we had discussed Arctic Power's future role but had made no decisions, especially since we have had no previous recommendations from AP itself. I asked them to prepare a one page proposal describing what they would like to do and how much it would cost. I also raised the question of whether it makes sense to maintain AP's Anchorage office, consisting of an auditor ($6,000 per month) and rent ($1,500 per month) if Arctic Power is going to operate on such a scaled down basis. We didn't discuss the issue of matching funds from private sources. Adrian said that Mike Navarre will seek meetings with you to discuss AP's proposal. After we have all received the one pager, and you have heard from Arctic Power directly, I would suggest that we discuss this further. I will save my editorial comments until then. Please note that my email address has changed. My new email address is iwkatz@alaskadc.org. Thank you .

Importance: High Before I send Joe's w r i t t e n response to Rod Boyce's question for the Governor, I'd like to ensure t h a t I have final approval Rod's f o l l o w - u p questions: I have two follow-up questions that stem from the governor's response to my earlier query about the port authority's 2005 advertisement: 1. The governor suggests in her previous response that other entities might have a better gas line proposal than what the port authority has put forward. Presumably that would have been the case in 2005 as well. So why did the governor endorse the statement in the May 2005 newspaper ad? 2, The governor says in her response that the port authority was the only entity "with terms available to the public." How was it wise to make such a strong statement of support for the port authority's proposal in the absence of information about other proposals?

Joe's suggested response with the Governor: Privileged or Personal Material Redacted

I told Rod t h a t I would have something for him by the end of today. Thanks, Meg

Talking Points "There is no information indicating that terrorists have been involved in procuring school buses or licenses to drive them. Nor is there credible intelligence to suggest an imminent threat to the homeland, at this time. *Some school districts have reported an increase in the number of foreign nationals seeking school bus driver positions, and generic instances of unusual activity. The vast majority of attempts by foreign nationals to acquire school buses and the licenses to drive them are legitimate. *The information shared in this bulletin is simply precautionary and serves as a longer term advisory that encourages vigilance for any abnormal activity. *DHS and the FBI have a responsibility to share information with our state and local officials and law enforcement partners to encourage vigilance and ensure that they have the information they need to make decisions for their community and critical infrastructure.

I would like to ask the Juneau to defend their claim and when they can not, print a retraction.

I campaigned on open and transparent government -1 don't know why the issue covered in the article today was ever NOT made public... it's not a mistake that was made on our watch, so why try to hide it anyway? Please let me know where you guys are going with this to help correct the mistake that was made in not releasing this part of a transition report.

Governor, We will look at the tax credit suggestion, and see if there is some aspect of it we can use. On first blush, there are a few problems with the idea, though.

I know how many folks are trying to get your attention, but I couldn't help but write over the latest flap by the legislature regarding a possible Constitutional problem with your team's proposed 10 year gas tax exemption for pipeline builders. The solution seems obvious to me and is in the control of the legislature if they wish to support pipeline construction and avoid a Constitutional issue.

They can pass tax legislation now that says any company that helps build a gas pipeline will still calculate the tax and file a return, but once gas flows they get a 10-year gas tax credit to be taken at the rate of one-tenth of the amount spent on construction each year or the amount of the tax, whichever is less. It would have to be carefully worded, but by passing it now it becomes a general tax credit provision that avoids constitutional problems and is not limited to any particular company or companies as part of a contract or agreement. It might be a good idea for your team to consider drafting proposed legislation and laying it on the table of the legislature. You could then say, "Here's a solution. Do you want a pipeline or not? " Good luck. By the way...you're doing a great job and from what I hear you're still getting a positive response from most state workers. —

Lori promises to review t h e article again, look through my notes, and speak w i t h Pat about his story. I told her at the highest level we've got a serious problem w i t h t h e story because it is almost completely inaccurate and for the most part responsive to t h e Murkowski transition report when he is w r i t i n g about the Palin transition reports. We'll see where this leads. Thanks, Meghan

After indicating that such a letter would arrive on Friday evening, the head of the PSIO (Jonne Siemens at the Division of Oil and Gas) went up to Prudhoe Bay on Saturday and Sunday. She took with her at least one inspector and is preparing a written report. The status of the fire suppression system appears to be the most pressing issue. It would appear the balance is related to past activities and reports that are most relevant to the ongoing investigations of BP's past practices.

BP London's cost cutting measures dictated upon the GC-2 facilities has deferred for a long time the scheduled replacement of the facility's defective Fire Suppression System. The system is required to be turned off to become dangerously inoperative for up to 12 hours at a time and incapable of protecting ongoing "x-ray corrosion monitoring program" required in GC-2. I need not explain this dangerous risk to the short handed GC-3 Operators, the integrity of the facility, the environment and continuing flow of crude oil from Prudhoe to the West Coast. You must recall Kuwait's Gathering Center explosion and disaster claiming nine lives and curtailing Kuwait's crude exports by two thirds. Kris Dye, President of

Prudhoe USW Operators Union, and coincidental^ an Operator within GC-2 is interviewing with an Associated Press reporter this week-end in order to publicly corroborate the problems I relate to you. The Operators may well finally gain the attention of BP London Headquarters. It is obvious that BP'S US President and Chairman Robert Malone has no authority over Prudhoe operations and unable to address or even respond to the Operators' plight. These Operators cope with volatile conditions daily, sitting on over one billion cubic feet of gas under pressure at any one time. Total BP operations at Prudhoe, on behalf of EXXON and Conoco, was fine tuned from London instructions ever since EXXON and CONOCO signed their operations contract with BP. Steve Marshall, President of BP Alaska Exploration and Development has answered daily and solely to the Upstream Division of Exploration and Development at London Headquarters, as overseen by Group Vice President Tony Hayward. This division orchestrated the cost cutting "root cause" of the "corrupt corrosion" monitoring and failure of the Prudhoe crude transit lines that led to the Prudhoe "shut -down" debacle. There are a thousand miles of similarly corrosion damaged gathering lines from the oil producing wells as well as hundreds of miles of produced water/crude flow lines... as yet unaddressed and required to be dealt with. I am copying this letter to Governor Sarah Palin in view of her publicly aired concerns over Alaska's significant revenue losses from BP's corrosion monitoring malfeasance. Governor Palin has publicly expressed considering plans of some effective oversight of BP's future corrosion monitoring practices. I am similarly copying Bob Malone who sat beside Richard Woolam and testified under oath, at your 09-07-07 House Energy and Commerce Committee Hearing, that he and BP would provide transparent responses and evidence concerning BP's past practices leading up to the disastrous shut-down. At this time I must advise you of a shocking new discovery -- the deception of you, Chairman Miller and the public interest. As result and pressure of correspondence between then BP US WC President, Bob Malone, you, Chairman George Miller, and myself (on behalf of concerned BP WOA Prudhoe Operators), as covered by the Wall Street Journal, Mr. Malone orchestrated an Operational Revenue of the integrity of the facilities by way of interviews of the Operators. The "Operational Review Team" (ORT) Report was delivered to you shortly after 911-01. However, I was shocked to recently discover that BP and Mr. Malone concealed from Malone's vaunted ORT Report and you, critical portions of interviews of veteran Operators. A number of Operators individually warned that "flow lines" were so dangerously corroded that they predicted major spills. BP and Mr. Malone did not address the corrosion issue thereafter nor undertook any corrective measures. I submit that Mr. Malone's mandate did not permit his interfering with the BP London "Upstream Exploration and Development Division" control and direction of daily operations at Prudhoe. Over these many years, Chairman Dingell, it is evident that our Federal government and the Congress actually had zero oversight of this North Slope British enclave, answering to no BP entity South of the North Slope.

Chairman John Dingell March 17, 2007 Page Two Richard Woolam's bonus driven corrupt corrosion division answered only to Field Manager Maureen Johnson, abruptly and conveniently transferred to London after your "abbreviated" 07-09-06 House Energy and Commerce BP Corrosion Hearing. Ms. Johnson answered only to Steve Marshall, BP President BP Alaska Exploration and Development, who answered only to London Upstream Expl. & Dev. - abruptly and conveniently transferred to London as well soon after your abbreviated Hearing. Mr. Woolam is reportedly on paid leave before presumably and conveniently returning home to Scotland. The integrity of the Prudhoe Bay facilities is in such disrepair, that it is doubtful Congress or the Federal government can make a difference before the next predicted major incident again shuts-down the field... hopefully without injury to the workers. Please be advised that I have already alerted the EPA Criminal Investigations Division with the evidence and identified the computer program containing the Operators' interviews. I will be pleased to share this information with your investigators. The correspondence and WSJoumal coverage referred to above is posted on www.anwr.news.com. As your office is in transition at this time, I will forward to your staff the ORT Report and post it additionally on www.bpconcerns.com website as soon as possible. I will not dwell on many of the deficiencies revealed in the ORT Report and yet reportedly unaddressed as promised by Mr. Malone. However, the unaddressed and uncorrected warnings of a "major spill", threatened by identified serious flow lines corrosion deficiencies was unconscionable and may well merit your attention.

Energy TV would like an interview with the Governor and I thought this Wednesday might work - the questions are below. What we need to do is simply book the Governor's time, provide the answers to the questions below, use the prompter and have her look to the side and answer the questions for use by the TV station. I just need help on the answers. It needs to be very conversationally written. Needs to be on 3:30pm Governor's feed Wednesday could record according to Governor's schedule on Wednesday morning and would need answers by tomorrow. Possible? Thanks, Meg

Energy-TV is an independently produced television program based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The show focuses on the energy sector, primarily oil and gas; it began broadcasting in October 2006. Energy-TV currently airs in the cities of Calgary, Edmonton, and Red Deer, Alberta; it can also be viewed on-line at www.energy-tv.com. As of April 7, 2007, Energy-TV will begin airing in Houston, Texas on Saturdays at 11a.m., on ABC, with American content. On April 7th, Energy-TV will be the lead-in for the NBA play-offs. This first episode will be about natural gas; we would very much like to interview Governor Palin for this episode. The interview could take place at the Governor's office in Washington, D.C. and we would need approximately 20 minutes of her time. Given the scheduled air date, we would like to conduct the interview by March 28th, if at all possible. The questions we propose asking are as follows: 1) Can you explain why your government is strongly supporting the development of the North Slope Alaska Pipeline that will carry Alaskan gas to both the U.S. and Canada? What would the economic losses be for Alaska if this project does not proceed? 2) How important is the Alaskan gas to the future supply equation for the U.S.? 3) Recently, the government of Alaska wrote into the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act, a capital investment of $500 million, for the successful applicant or group of applicants to reach regulatory certification. What was the reason for including the monetary incentive? Has the incentive been helping in the regulatory certification process? 4) What progress has been made so far with the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act? How will that progress assist in the final outlook of the North Slope Alaska Pipeline? 5) Even if the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act proceeds, what is the overview for the project? How long would it take for regulatory completion, construction, and tie-in?

11/10/2009

6) What do you see as the major stumbling blocks in pushing this project ahead? 7) Is your government watching the Mackenzie Valley pipeline application in Canada to see what the best strategy is in dealing with so many stakeholders? If Mackenzie gets a green light, many think that it will open the north for both Canada and the U.S., and that the Mackenzie project will become the pathway for Canadian gas in the Canadian pipeline, soon followed by a U.S. pipeline that would carry U.S. gas. Is this statement correct? Why or why not? 8) How would your project tie into Canadian infrastructure? 9) Where would the final destination be for Alaskan gas? 10) Is there anything else you would like to add for Energy-TV viewers? I hope this note provides you with the information you need to respond to our request. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at (403) 444- 5779 or e-mail me at tracy@energy-tv.com. Thank you for your time and consideration of this matter.

Subject: Diversity and the Daily News Governor, The information below is an FYI for you, especially since you may be meeting with Dr. Patterson this Friday. Kris and I can brief you further, but I forwarded the information below to Julia O'Malley this afternoon following a conversation that I had with her regarding diversity in your administration. Thanks, Meghan

From: Meghan Stapleton [mailto:meghan_stapleton@gov.state.ak.us] Sent: Tuesday, March 20, 2007 3:21 PM To: meghan_stapleton@gov.state.ak.us Subject: FW: Diversity Julia: Just to review what you and I spoke about regarding the diversity of this administration. This administration is incredibly diverse, and with only three months under our belt, promises to grow in diversity as we fill positions throughout the state. More specifically in the context of this story, Kris Perry, the Anchorage Office Director, and the Palin Administration quite frankly, have a great relationship with the NAACP and its president - and has had an open dialogue for some time now. With regard to the Alaska Black Leadership Conference, Kris Perry has spoken with Dr. Patterson in the past, and, in fact, just spoke with Dr. Patterson yesterday, who asked for an update on the letter he sent just last week, requesting a meeting with the Governor. Kris is working on the timing of that meeting. Kris told Dr. Patterson that she hoped to have a look at the Governor's schedule by tomorrow. The Governor's schedule, as you can imagine, is incredibly booked for time, especially over the next month. Dr. Patterson would like to meet in Anchorage which makes it more difficult during the legislative session, as the Governor spends most of her time in Juneau. Dr. Patterson told Kris yesterday that he wants, and others on the Alaska Black Leadership Council, want the meeting to be a town hall meeting to celebrate Alaska's first female Governor. As you pointed out, obviously the tone of the letter and conversations we've had far differ from the one conversation that you relayed to me.

In terms of diversity, this administration does not begin its hiring process by segregating applications according to ethnic / racial / gender backgrounds; however, we do make a conscious effort, among qualified applicants, to ensure a diverse make-up, and that includes regional and issue balances as well. In fact, during early review of applications, we don't even know who is applying. We don't ask for pictures to be included and we're not going to; we look at the content and qualifications of that resume and application. With that in mind, there is nothing that prohibits every single one of those qualified applicants to be a minority. Choosing between t w o : As we discussed, if you look at two candidates with the exact same qualifications and one can offer a different perspective to the position because of their gender, racial, ethnic, regional and / or issues background, we would most likely favor the individual who can provide a different perspective because of that diversity. And again, with that in mind, we have reached out to members of the African-American community for assistance in hiring - whether for administration positions or Boards and Commissions. In fact, as one example, last week we called the Reverend Doctor William Greene to ask for his assistance in providing input for the Governor's potential 1100 appointees to various Boards and Commissions. Three months into office, she has appointed 44 individuals - and there are plenty of opportunities. Looking at her immediate cabinet members, four of the fourteen are minorities. A fifth was an Acting Director of DIMR, there may be others, but we haven't polled them to see. The Governor just chose the most qualified applicants and they are what they are. I will poll for you - and see what kind of responses I receive. Additionally, in the Governor's immediate office, you can add others like Karen Rehfeld as OMB Director, four female Regional Directors from Fairbanks to Wasilla, Anchorage, and Kenai, Sharon Leighow as Deputy Communications Director / Deputy Press Secretary, and Meghan Stapleton (me) as the Communications Director / Press Secretary. I could go on... I'm researching your other questions, including the titles and j o b descriptions of the two positions eliminated as well as total positions eliminated. Thanks for your time, Meg

We are in the process of preparing a draft RFP. Although we cannot share the draft RFP with sponsors of the Cruise Ship initiative in advance of issuance (since at least one of the sponsors may be involved in making a proposal), we plan to discuss the scope of the requested services with them to confirm we are meeting the intent of the initiative. The scope of work will include having Ocean Rangers on board large cruise ships while they are underway in Alaska waters. We expect to finalize the RFP and put it out within two to three weeks. DEC has previously had our contractor (Mike Conway, retired Coast Guard and former DEC director) prepare a report (posted on DEC'S website) that identifies the qualifications of the Ocean Rangers specified in the initiative, their availability, scheduling, and additional training they will need to fulfill their duties. We anticipate it will take the first cruise season to hire all of the Ocean Rangers, complete their training and have them on board all vessels. However, we plan to start the season (early May) with DEC and term contractor personnel on board some of the cruise ships. They will not be Ocean Rangers, but they will be developing the checklists, duty descriptions, procedures and other necessary elements of the Ocean Rangers' tasks. This effort will be subject to necessary appropriations and the cooperation of the cruise ship companies. Please note that we currently do not have any appropriation for the Ocean Ranger program. The House Finance Committee zeroed out our FY 08 Ocean Ranger increment and may include intent language that monies for the program be included in the fiscal note for HB 164, the bill that would modify the initiative. Our goal is to implement the legal requirements of the Ocean Ranger program to the very best of our ability. The initiative, as it is written, sets out the legal requirements. If the initiative is modified by the legislature, then we will follow those legal requirements. DEC is not trying to change the law or interpret it in anyway inconsistent with the intent of the voters. I look forward to discussing this further with you tomorrow. Larry

Subject: Natural Gas OPEC?

This substantiates the argument the Governor has been making about starting down the road to heavy reliance on natural gas imports. J u s t as for oil, one can only imagine the price and supply implications associated with an OPEC for natural gas. Russia, Iran, Qatar to Discuss Gas OPEC, Attiyah Says (Update 1) By Glen Carey March 19 (Bloomberg) — Russia, Iran and Qatar, holders of the world's topthree natural-gas reserves, will meet next month to consider establishing a group similar to OPEC to coordinate gas policy, Qatar's energy minister said. "We will meet at the gas forum on April 9 in Doha," the minister, Abdullah bin Hamad al-Attiyah, said today in a phone interview from Doha. He said he would wait for the results of the Doha meeting before deciding whether it would be in Qatar's interest to coordinate its gas policy with a group of countries. The three countries will be joined by Algeria and Venezuela at the Doha meeting, Al-Attiyah said. The Moscow-based newspaper Kommersant reported today that five of the world's biggest gas suppliers may create a gas equivalent to the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries next month, citing unidentified Arab diplomats. Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is the driving force behind the "gas OPEC" and wants the new group to set gas transactions in euros, the newspaper reported. Russian President Vladimir Putin said last month the idea of a gas OPEC was "a good proposition." Russia holds the largest gas reserves in the world. Al-Attiyah said on Feb. 5 Qatar opposed Russian and Iranian proposals for an OPEC-style group to manage gas pricing and supplies, saying gas was contractually different from crude oil. Qatar, the world's largest shipper of natural gas, plans to produce 77 million tons a year by 2012 through 14 production trains. Six will produce 7.8 million tons a year each, making them twice the size of an average unit elsewhere. To contact the reporter on this story: Glen Carey in Dubai

Yes, you're right, and that is how we've been presenting the issue at the hearings. The article takes the perspective of comparing AGIA's legislative review process (veto) to the one in the SGDA (approval), and then characterizing it as a loss of legislative power. From the quotes of legislators in the article, that also seems to be how they are trying to frame the issue. During our hearings, we've reminded legislators of their discussions last year over whether the SGDA's required legislative approval was constitutional; we've pointed out that the veto structure of AGIA would have a stronger constitutional foundation, while protecting their ability to make sure the commissioners don't make a bad decision.

AGIA provides the legislature with the role as a safety valve to prevent a mistake by the commissioners before we set off with a licensee. It does not require the legislature to meet and discuss what will hopefully be a well supported decision by the commissioners. SGDA required the legislature to convene and approve. AGIA gives them the option whether to convene, or just let it go.

In all honesty, given what we heard at our legislative briefings before AGIA was introduced ("that will be our FIRST amendment"), we've had less push back on this so far than I expected. I think our approach has merit, and some legislators recognize that. We'11 see . . .

I know how many folks are trying to get your attention, but I couldn't help but write over the latest flap by the legislature regarding a possible Constitutional problem with your team's proposed 10 year gas tax exemption for pipeline builders. The solution seems obvious to me and is in the control of the legislature if they wish to support pipeline construction and avoid a Constitutional issue. They can pass tax legislation now that says any company that helps build a gas pipeline will still calculate the tax an d file a return, but once gas flows they get a 10-year gas tax credit to be taken at the rate of one-tenth of the amount spent on construction each year or the amount of the tax, whichever is less. It would have to be carefully worded, but by passing it now it becomes a general tax credit provision that avoids constitutional problems and is not limited to any particular company or companies as part of a contract or agreement. It might be a good idea for your team to consider drafting proposed legislation and laying it on the table of the legislature. You could then say, "Here's a solution. Do you want a pipeline or not?" Good luck. By the way...you're doing a great job and from what I hear you're still getting a positive response from most state workers. -Get your own web address. Have a HUGE year through Yahoo!

Subject: FW: SHARE Campaign Governor Palin, Here's what I found out about the SHARE Campaign. SHARE is run by state employees. The campaign management organization is United Way of Alaska (acting as a treasurer, auditing and distributing contributions to the state's selected charities). You appoint a member of your cabinet to chair the steering committee and the commissioner then selects a designee to act as the campaign coordinator. Last year the designated cabinet member was Bill Noll and he selected Sally Saddler to be the campaign coordinator. This year, if you chose to designate Commissioner Notti, he would presumably appoint Sally (or Joey) to coordinate. Planning will take place this Spring as soon as a chair is in place. The campaign takes place in September. Hope all is well down at your end of the hall,

MEMORANDUM

STATE OF ALASKA Office of the Governor

TO: Governor Sarah Palin FROM: Joe Balash

DATE: 3/22/07 TELEPHONE: 907-465-4022

SUBJECT: Briefing paper regarding Sempra meeting 3/22/07 Based in San Diego, Sempra Energy is a Fortune 500 energy services company with 2006 revenues of nearly $12 billion. Sempra Energy serves the largest customer base of any energy utility in the United States. With 14,000 employees worldwide, the Sempra Energy companies develop energy infrastructure, operate utilities, and provide related products and services to more than 29 million consumers in the United States, Europe, Canada, Mexico, South America and Asia. Sempra LNG is one of the companies held by Sempra Energy and leads efforts to develop, build and operate liquefied natural gas receipt terminals. At this time, Sempra LNG is developing three terminals to serve North American markets: Cameron LNG in Louisiana, Port Arthur LNG in Texas, and Energia Costa Azul in Mexico. In early 2005, Sempra Energy entered into a development arrangement with the Alaska Gasline Port Authority whereby Sempra provided a significant infusion of cash to AGPA. The value of that agreement was estimated to be in the high hundreds of thousands of dollars, but short of one million. AGPA spent heavily on advertising and lobbying, but it is unclear to me how much was spent on development activities (planning, economists, attorneys, etc.). Sempra was seeking a supply for its Mexico LNG receiving terminal and expressed profound interest in Alaska gas. Following the Murkowski brush-off later that summer, Sempra allowed its arrangement with AGPA to lapse and soon thereafter announced a supply arrangement with BP. Today's meeting will include the president and chief operating officer of Sempra Energy, Neal Schmale. He is responsible for implementing the company's growth strategy for overall management of the Sempra Energy companies. He has been a member of the board of directors since 2005 and previously served as executive vice president and chief financial officer. Before his career at Sempra, he spent 29 years at UNOCAL, serving in a range of jobs that culminated in the position of chief financial officer. Also attending will be the president and chief executive officer of Sempra LNG, Darcel Hulse. Mr. Hulse also spent his career at UNOCAL prior to joining Sempra. He served in a variety of positions, including engineering, construction, and business development.

The dog and pony show allowing a couple of the governor's bureaucrats to pick a pipeline company to build the largest construction project in North American history and then demand the producers foot the bill for it is absurd.

Time continues to go by, the price of steal rises, planners who project ten years ahead in the lower forty- eight are forced to look at other options than Alaska for their future gas needs. All this while the oil flowing through the Alyeska pipeline diminishes at a significant rate. Lawmakers what will you do then? When the money runs out. More than a year has passed since anyone from the state sat across the table from the producers in serious negotiations. February 20th 2006. That's the day former Governor Frank Murkowski got producers to agree to a contract for fiscal terms. Rejecting Governor Murkowski's deal with the producers may have had merit.

Maybe negotiations will reveal the big three unreasonable and we'll have to sue and take the leases back. But let's find out now, not years from now. Despite the belief of some, our governor is capable of taking a stand. Remember her fully backing, supporting, and endorsing the Port Authority's plan, with no gas, no way of getting gas, no way to ship the gas and no one to buy the gas. Our governor has apparently backed off her enthusiastic support of the Port Authority's go no where scheme. Legislators it is your job to push her into dealing with the producers now.

You must remind the governor the campaign is over, we know she's not Frank, now get down to the business of being a leader and negotiating a deal for a pipeline in time to offset the decline in oil production !

Meghan,

We seem to be having a very hard time communicating and you seem to be getting very distorted explanations of my comments and concerns.

As you are aware I've been asking since November for an interview with the governor to learn the fisheries policies she intends to pursue

this term.

I

also know that Wesley Loy at the Daily News also asked for an interview last 1

PRA GSP01 0000777

November and I'm pretty sure Intrafish did not ask for one that long ago. Hence, it was surprising to see that the governor gives what Intrafish seemed to suggest was an indepth interview to an out-of-state publication, not to mention one owned by multi-national salmon farm corporations. Not much of an endorsement for an Alaska-first policy.

Next, you seem to have the idea that an interview is an interview is an interview and since I had one interview with her on the subject of the governor's positions on environmental issues that suffices and somehow responds to the policy interview request. I was doing a proper journalist's job, trying to get all sides of a story, when I sought her comments on why her positions on environmental issues has been, and remains, absolutely identical to her predecessor. My expectation is the administration would have complained if I had published my report without seeking a comment on that issue. (And the governor's claim

that the factual record of her identical positions on specific issues with the Murkowski administration is "nonsensical" didn't do much for her credibility either.) The governor is very reclusive when it comes to media contacts. She pops out to deliver sound bites and appears for brief "news conferences" at bill signings and isn't at all responsive to questions at those. The legislative session is past the halfway point and she has not had a single general news conference with a reasonable amount of time for reporters to ask her about pending bills and issues. This is a fascinating contrast to the legislature where all four political caucuses have found weekly news conferences very useful.

To be blunt, the Palin administration's press office is the worst I have known in 17+ sessions and now 5 governors I have covered in Juneau. Your responsiveness is very slow and always truncated. The inefficiency makes both of our jobs more difficult. In my career here and in other states I have never known a press secretary who makes herself so unavailable to the press. I cannot recall the last time I tried your mobile phone number and you actually answered or even

PRA_GSP01_0000778

when the mailbox was not full. Likewise, you have demonstrated a policy refusing to take calls to your office in Anchorage.

of

Clearly this administration's so-called 'transparency' policy does not extend to media relations. At the same time, while it is so difficult for reporters to talk to administration spokespersons you always seem to get your 'canned' news out. The fact that you have not replaced Charles Fedullo after close to a month also seems to indicate responsiveness to the press is a low priority. And in that regard whatever Sharon Leighow is getting paid is not enough because she seems to be doing her utmost to do a proper press secretary's

Lastly, I don't care in the least where you live or spend your time and I have never been told that flying on a plane would endanger you or your coming child. I have been told only that you want to be near your physician in Anchorage. I don't have the vaguest idea when you are due, but if you want to keep bad-mouthing me like that we're going to have some real problems.

You could be much more responsive from anywhere in the state if that was your desire and it is a waste of time and public funds to keep flying Sharon down here for a few days when the governor needs a handler in Juneau. All of these things very clearly raise the question of how much time you spend on the job and I am still waiting for the record of your time at work, now a week later than I was told I would get it. If you want a freedom of information request for it they're quite easy to produce. If your pregnancy requires you to be away from your job for substantial periods of time it would seem to me that an honest administration would acknowledge that fact and take a leave of absence rather than having a press secretary who does a half-assed job while probably overstressing yourself and your baby to boot. The bottom line is that I would like to see a press office that can provide answers the same day or at least within a reasonable amount of time.

I don't believe that is an unreasonable expectation. I would be happy to discuss these comments with you at any time and still retain the hope that the Palin administration will begin showing some respect for the important work the press corps does.

Especially here in anch this weekend , running into so many people, quite a few additional comments have come my way in this regard . Don't know how previous govs did it, and as mayor I pretty much did it personally - which I could continue if I know we're not duplicating or missing anything.

We've been seeking a better system w/this - I think the solution is to just send me lists of correspondence so i'll know what i'm missing and I can start filling in more gaps. Thank you!

I appreciated JB's comments yesterday about not losing what we have in the capitol bldg (ie, freedom). If the Lt. Gov's office will be requesting more security (sounded like it from Sean's COS), then perhaps the security detail that presently sits behind the Gov's Office closed doors should move further out in the hallway so he can keep an eye on Sean's office too. (If that's what his COS was basically requesting.) This, at the most, would be acceptable in my state budget. I do not advocate for additional security detail. You guys know how I feel about the need for my own security detail, and until we see additional efficiencies in the Gov's security detail, I'll keep pushing to cut my own. Just FYI - but let me know if you hear any rumblings about requests for increases there and I'll offer to cut mine to provide Sean some.

Governor; This story ran today in the JNU Empire, and I wanted to be sure you remembered from our conversation when you were signing the transmittal letters, some communities, like Wasilla, will pay more under the new plan, but they were going to pay more anyway.

Our plan has a "hold harmless" provision for FY08 for all of the communities, like Wasilla, that would have paid more in the FY08 fiscal year. Knowing the complaint that this is a hold harmless for one year

and what about FY09, I looked at the difference between FY 07 and 08 increases and have numbers that X intend to offer at the AML discussion tomorrow where the State would pay 75% of the increase in 09 (vs. 100% in 08); 50% in 10 and 25% in 11.

Again, I'm tring to look at this holistically, to get the State and the local governments on a steady path to paying down the unfunded liability - not just looking at a short-term solution, as I believe the House Finance Committee's plan does.

Alaska gov.'s pipeline bill seen passing--official Mon Mar 26, 2007 8:10 PM GMT

HOUSTON, March 26 (Reuters) - Alaska's state legislature will approve a proposal from Governor Sarah Palin to allow competitive bidding for rights to build a long-envisioned Alaska North Slope natural gas pipeline, a top federal pipeline official predicted on Monday.

"Governor Palin is going to get a bill," Drue Pearce, the federal coordinator for the Alaska pipeline project, told Pipeline Opportunities Conference in Houston.

She added that Governor Palin, who is a Republican, would likely call a special session of the legislature if no bill has been approved by the end of the regular session on May 16.

Legislation to kick-start the project has the support of the people of 1

PRA_GSP01_0000793

Alaska, state legislators, some federal agencies and the White House, Pearce said.

The pipeline, a mega-project proposed long ago by Alaska officials, would provide a method of delivering the North Slope's proven reserves of about 35 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.

The cost of the project, calculated in 2001, was $20 billion.

Plans for the 3,500 mile gas pipeline date back to the early 1970s, before the existing trans-Alaska oil pipeline was built, but the gas project has been stymied for decades by high costs and poor economics.

Palin's plan, which was introduced in March, replaces a failed contract that former Gov. Frank Murkowski proposed with BP Pic <BP.L>, ConocoPhillips <C0P.N> and Exxon Mobil Corp. <X0M.N>. Some thought the contract was too much of a giveaway to the oil giants and it was rejected by lawmakers and the public.

Subject: long, bonus

Surely the legislators will give a fair comparison of the Long. Bonus with Hawkers' Sr. Program? I want to believe they'll be fair here. And I believe they'll find that Hawkers' plan will end up costing the state more than our reinstatement of funding the $29 million Long. Bonus until that program phases out. And it will be insulting to seniors who will now be part of a welfare arm of govt. And it will be a further broken promise if those legislators who vehemently disagreed with Murkowski on the cut do not now support our reinstatement. I disagree with Hawker that some statutory change is now necessary to plug the funding back into the Long. Bonus Program. Please correct me if I'm wrong. And even if it did take statutory change, that's what the Legislature is there for and what they're engaged in right now on a variety of issues. Please re-read Mark Fish's email that I forwarded to you as the reminder of my committment to funding the Bonus. Bottom line: after public discussion and legislative debate, it was concluded the program would be phased out. There's no need to argue whether it was fair or not - it was concluded the program would end. The broken promise was over WHEN it was supposed to end.

Subject: Senate Majority press comments on AGIA Below are fast & furious notes from the Senate Majority Press Conference. These notes are only regarding discussions on AGIA. Please note Huggins reference to "posturing" and also deferring to Senate Judiciary Committee the discussion on fiscal certainty. These notes are rough and are NOT for distribution...thanks JB Huggins: At best, Mid America will be on the telephone. I know they are in the House on Thursday... but the communication with Mid America has been "lacking for lack of a better term." Huggins: I want the conversations to occur between the producers and the administration in order to reach accord so we have a successful Open Season. ...the potential for an unsuccessful Open Season is a big concern for me and others in my caucus ... I'm not sure AGIA addresses it (Open Season) ... AGIA doesn't address Open Season ... the players are talking to one another and we encourage the administration to be a part of that. Steve Quinn: I keep hearing you talk about unsuccessful. Huggins: Some of this is posturing...yes. Again...encourage the administration to be part of the loop to work this out. McAllister: What about fiscal certainty? Huggins: This is an issue for the Judiciary Committee to review. French: I will be looking at this...and will ask whether it's necessary. I want to talk to economists, compare this with TAPS. We will ask...is it constitutional? We will look to the administration from their advisors on whom they consulted What if you're wrong about constitutionality...what are the consequences? (i.e., is this a deal breaker?) McAllister: the debate about constitutionality is something they don't seem to care about. French: I'm surprised at that stance...ask them [the producers]. I will do my best with the bill that's in front of me rather than look at the world through the producers eyes. I feel there is widespread public opposition (to decades-long fiscal certainty)... Becca: Hearing rumors about repealing stranded gas contract...is the Murkowski contract still out there? French: I don't have thoughts...first I've heard about this. Recognize this could be the attack on unsuccessful applicants Christine: How do you feel about the producers' comments and how is this different than stranded gas act? Huggins: Many issues are the same...there is very little discussion that the public hasn't heard...it's an

open process. The openness of the process is the main difference. The legislature is talking to pipeline companies...that is something that is also different. This is the full spectrum of potential players Myrl Thompson: Will Resources bring back SB80 - [Wagoner's] corrosion bill? Huggins: There is skewed vision that bill is being killed..this is wrong. Wagoner and I met privately, and he will make modifications that haven't been done yet. Waiting. As soon as he's ready...we'll hear it.

Hi Ivy, Please keep my comments confidential. In my opinion, we have to consider the long range plan for the state and determine if the bridge is needed and how it will be funded. If the federal government is now not interested in appropriating any more funds, then we need to determine whether the two proposals received for financing the bridge make sense. Meaning, if we fund this with private funding and the state must guarantee the repayment, then we need to consider what will be the toll charge necessary to repay the debt, and is that a realistic toll charge that the public will be willing to pay how long until we can expect the bridge to be at a break even. There are toll bridges all over the lower 48. So this is not a "new" thing. What is different is that our population base is much lower and therefore we must look closely at whether the public can back such a project without federal funds. We all know that Anchorage has run out of developable land. It's only a matter of time when it will be imperative that the bridge be built so that Anchorage can grow. The longer we delay the project, the more it will cost and we will end up having some of the same issues that Sara is dealing with now regarding the gas pipeline. Having said all of that, the other issue is timing. Given the Governor's priorities, is this something that she wants championed at this time? If so and Sara wants me to serve, I will absolutely be willing. She knows my talents and giftings. I am willing to serve where she thinks those talents and gifts can be used best. Let her know if she wants to talk to me, or just leave me a secure message, to call my direct number at Privileged j It's my direct number and the voice mail is secure. It also rings to my cell phone if I am not at my desk. All my best,

Mike, FYI, (assuming you didn't know) your boss is making noise and making an impression on the national scene. Michael Medved, a nationally syndicated radio host, yesterday recommended her as a Vice President nominee to go on the Republican Presidential Ticket in order to counter the likely Democratic ticket which will include either a female, African American, or both. He told his audience, of more than 2.5 million listeners, that the Republican Party should seriously consider Sarah Palin who is the Governor of Alaska as she is remarkably dynamic and charismatic. Then he stated one other person the party should consider, a guy in the states who is some congressman (or somebody like that) who happened to be very competent and was American Indian or maybe Hispanic, don't know for sure, I was too busy being impressed with the fact that our Governor had made such an impression on him. I am sure you know who Micheal Medved is but I do not know if you get his show in Juneau. He is a heavy hitter Republican and political pundit who is exceptionally intelligent. He used to guest host for Rush Limbaugh all the time and that led to him getting his own show which is now broadcast on 200 stations nationwide. He is consistently listed as one of the top 20 talk show hosts nationwide and top 10 in the political talk show category. He is a regular columnist for USA Today and occasional op-ed columns in the Wall Street Journal. My point? You have a boss that has not only arrived on the state scene but on the national scene as well and 2.5 million more people know who she is today than knew who she was yesterday. You sure know how to pick a boss Mike. Then again, for all I know, the RNC may have contacted her long ago about this. Good for her, you and Alaska because that kind of exposure can't hurt the state whether anything tangible comes from it or not. You guys are doing a great job.
