Palin Resigns

            Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has announced she will step down on July 26th. She made the announcement at an impromptu press conference at her Wasilla home, surrounded by her family and Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell. She will turn the reins of government over to Parnell later this month when he is sworn in at the Governor's picnic in Fairbanks.

            Though she was vague about her future plans, Palin said she felt she could effect more positive change for Alaskans and Americans outside of government. She said there needs to be a "full-court press" against the policies of the federal government and the "flushing down the drain" of public dollars.

            She said the decision "has been in the works for a while," after much thought and prayer.

Burcham's Essay on Display in Nation's Capital
Friday, 03 July 2009

            A local student's award-winning essay on why she is proud of her military family is on display at an exhibit on Capitol Hill this week as part of July 4th celebrations in Washington. 17-year-old Linzee Burcham, a recent Kodiak High School graduate, took first place in the eleventh and twelfth grade category of The Armed Services YMCA's Annual Essay and Art Contest in May.

            Burcham, the daughter of U.S. Coast Guardsman Terry Burcham and Jody Carman, wrote about a story her father once told her of a night rescue he performed in Hawaii in her winning essay. In the essay, she wrote, "I am astonished by all the stories I have heard growing up."

            Burcham's piece is currently being displayed along with the 25 other winning essays in the U.S. Senate's Russell Rotunda in an exhibit sponsored by U.S. Senator Herb Kohl of Wisconsin. Burcham received a 1,000-dollar U.S. savings bond for her winning essay. In May she said she will put the earnings toward college tuition. A three-sport, standout athlete at Kodiak High School, Burcham plans to attend the University of Alaska Anchorage, where she will run track, in the fall.
