As Alaska Governor Sarah Palin prepares for one of the most important appearances of her political career, in front of the core of her perceived constituency - FOX News' brand new Glenn Beck show - she managed to fit in an appearance today to announce her long-delayed Statewide Energy Plan.
(Between a morning dentist session, rebuilding and re-pinning a capped molar, and prepping for an arts fellowship interview, I wasn't able to go to the energy announcement event.)
KUDO played a lot of it during the first hour of CC's program this afternoon. According to Linda Kellen, who listened in to the entire announcement and conference, Kyle Hopkins from the Anchorage Daily News and Dave Donalson from APRN both asked probing questions about the state's role in assisting the people of Emmonak and the lower Yukon.
Linda says there were questions from other media figures who she was unfamiliar with. She will have post up on the conference tonight.
The most poignant and powerful Alaska blogger post on the situation in Emmonak yet, was penned yesterday by Writing Raven at Alaska Real.
And Andrew Halcro is asking questions at his blog, about the dirty clean coal deal at Healy, that might even make Ray Metcalfe's head turn. Go, Andy!
And Alaska progressive bloggers have now raised over $7,100.00 for lower Yukon relief, and to get Dennis Zaki into the area to report. He'd be halfway there already, but the Bethel airport was closed for much of today.
It is really nasty outside!
