            Friday's sudden announcement by Governor Sarah Palin that she will be stepping down in three weeks caught Alaskans and Alaskan lawmakers by surprise. Senate President Gary Stevens of Kodiak says he didn't hear a word from the governor's office before her news conference. 

            Kodiak House Representative Alan Austerman didn't foresee the resignation either, but says it is not out of character for her. 

            Austerman speculated that Palin resigned to make preparations for a presidential run in 2012. 

            Stevens says he believes something is going on behind the scenes, but would not speculate other than to say that he doesn't think the governor is resigning due to the intense scrutiny or criticism that she's received since rising to the national stage 10 months ago.

            Stevens added that the state will have to move on, and he thinks Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell will do a good job as governor, but Austerman suggested Parnell m

            Palin will hand over the reigns of state government to Parnell at the annual Governor's Picnic in Fairbanks on July 26.

            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.

            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.
