One Alaska Update: Keeping up with Gov. Bill Walker

Fellow Alaskan –

This past week has been historic for our state. I was proud to be in China with President Trump as he and President Xi watched me sign a joint development agreement (JDA) for the Alaska LNG project. The JDA is the most significant step towards fully monetizing our natural gas resources, bringing the potential customer, lender, equity investor, and developer together with the goal of advancing this project to completion by 2024-2025. The Alaska Gasline Development Corporation and the state are working harder than ever to bring this project to fruition for the benefit of all Alaskans.

Off and On: The Alaska Parkinson’s Rag: I Said, Late-Breaking Meeting, Speech Therapy for PD

Hi folks, I just received a note from Rock-Star speech pathologist Anne Ver Hoef who has this to say “I’m organizing a PD speech group: meeting Monday, Nov 13 at 4:00 pm at Denny’s on DeBarr Rd, back room. I️ have invited several people but got behind in timeliness. Sorry for late invite. I️ don’t know if this will be a 1-time thing or if there is interest in group that practices skills and strategies and meets somewhat regularly.” As many of you know Anne is a terrific therapist and a stellar person to boot. This is bound to be a fruitful use of your time. I hope it isn’t too late for you to adjust your schedules to attend this clambake.

Matthew Komatsu | Anything But Normal – 49 Writers, Inc.

Next month, I’ll be teaching an introductory class on open form essays, and I hope you can tell that I’m excited. We’ll do a little reading, a little writing, and a little listening. All of which will be in the name of disrupting the expected and getting outside our literary comfort zones. Join me on 9 December and let’s see where it takes us.
