"Something's Up" In America's Big Berg
Selected Poems from The Alaska Mystery Collection
and The Tree Series
by Paula Marie Rose
Fortunately, someone's curious questions reminded me that I still have much more information to publish, including this Affidavit.
As you read through her carefully notated and detailed Affidavit, you may also be surprised at the level of detail that Former Alaska State Trooper Anna Kathryn Sanders seems to have about some dates, times, and emails; or a lack thereof, and how they relate to me. This Affidavit is signed on October 21, 2008, and contains general references to the alleged MP report which Anna claims to have filed on me.
LET'S REVIEW: On November 10, 2007, I received a voice mail message from Anna Kathryn Sanders stating that she had no information on "any report", nor could she recall any details about it. CLICK HERE TO HEAR
I have provided evidence throughout this website of numerous emails to Anna Sanders and others asking about this alleged MP report and incident. Yet, for well over one full year, Anna Sanders and others refused to provide the requested information.
How CONvenient that she now has produced a signed Affidavit where she provides many details, yet in the same generalized style of not naming persons referenced with full names, and many of her recollections are inaccurate, incomplete, conflicting with statements made by others, or wrong.
I'm not an expert on memory and how recall works, but from what I've read, for most people, details of events tend to fade, not gain strength, as time passes. Based on Anna's voice mail from November 10, 2007, and her self contradictory statements in her signed Affidavit eleven (11) months later; there is proof that she was lying to me in 2007. Additionally, it strongly suggests that many of Anna's statements, like those of Shannon Marie McCormick, and Valerie Brittina Rose, appear to have been prepared some time ago; or Anna's memory functions differently than most folks.
NOTE: No copy of any MP report, nor one bearing my name and photo has ever been provided to me, as of December 2, 2008.
Anna Kathryn Sanders has had many stages of trying to find her true self throughout her adult life. It's been interesting to see her changes; heterosexual to lesbian, then back to men; meat eater to vegetarian, then back on beef and meat a few years later; microwave oven user to a shift of not allowing one in the house (the emissions were "bad", she claimed!) to having a large one installed and used regularly over the range in her Cudjoe Key home; confirmed Catholic as teen, to full on Wand Waving, Gong Banging, incense burning chanter who regularly participates in "new age" groups and events.
She married in her early 20's, and that marriage ended in divorce. As that marriage was falling apart, Anna switched gears, and became deeply involved in a Lesbian relationship with a co worker. Anna and that woman began living together, and built a home in Fairbanks, Alaska. Anna told me that relationship ended because the other party had a drug problem. I never saw that woman using drugs, but I did question Anna as to why she, a gun toting Alaska State Trooper, didn't turn in her own domestic partner for breaking the law. Apparently, it wasn't required; which indicates that an Alaska State Trooper can pick and choose when to selectively enforce laws.
Anna's disregard for laws and rules continued, as she lived in Key West, Florida. She had purchased a "Fixer Upper" in 2001, and I lent her $25,000 (from the sale of my home) for making improvements. I worked on her home as unpaid help, with her hired carpenter for several months. I purchased supplies and some furnishings, and provided free labor in exchange for staying at her home. At least some of the work was done, as she termed it "midnight construction", due to the strict and lengthy permitting process required by the City of Key West. During this time, Anna worked as a Massage Therapist doing mostly outcall work. She was regularly paid in cash, and was quite candid about keeping most, if not all of it, unreported on her federal income taxes.
The Keys are known for a place to party, "Margaritaville" by Jimmy Buffet is a popular tune there. I saw Anna Sanders drive up in the driveway on at least one occasion during either Christmas 2005 or Christmas 2006, after being at a holiday party, as she leaned out the open window and shouted WOOOO HHHOOOOO! I stated then, with surprise, "You're drunk, and shouldn't be driving." Her reply: "A little! and it was only a couple of miles."
Historically, during family visits in the Keys, any road trip or day jaunt involved the packing of coolers filled with beer, wine, sodas and snacks for on the road consumption, including the driver. Open containers in a vehicle might not be a crime in Florida, but having the driver drinking beer while operating a motor vehicle probably is. Note my email to Eric Swanson of December 18, 2007, in the third paragraph, where I specifically mention this detail, and asked him to be aware, and ensure that Claire would not be riding in any vehicle where a driver had, or was, consuming alcohol.

Reading the pages below, I disagree with many of the statements Anna Kathryn Sanders has made. I will do a line item review of some points immediately following her Affidavit pages. Plenty of hearsay, and inaccurate facts are presented below in this Affidavit of Anna K. Sanders. I wonder how accurate her formal reports were when she was an Alaska State Trooper?
NOTE: On Page 3, Item 8. Anna used the full name and occupation of my friend and hypnotherapist, Jerry Zeiger. Jerry and I met in 2004 while standing in line at a car rental at LAX. I had a hypotherapy session with him in 2006, to gain Focus and Concentration skills, as I was teaching myself how to trade currencies and also considering other avenues for my photography work. I went to see Jerry again in July of 2007, where we had two additional sessions for Focus and Concentration, as I had now switched to writing as my newest personal project. We also spent time going out for meals, sightseeing, and window shopping in the San Fransisco area over a few days.
The statements which she claims he made to her about me are very unusual, and doesn't sound like the something that Jerry would say to anyone about me. Nor had Jerry ever labeled me as exhibiting any signs of "paranoia." I have copies of his session notes which I may post at a later time.
I don't believe that my friend and a licensed professional, would say such things about their client over the phone to someone whom they did not know personally, as that would be an extreme breach of confidentiality. Jerry Zeiger has never mentioned speaking to my sister, Anna Kathryn Sanders, to me. And do read the reference letter which I had requested Jerry write for me during the summer of 2008, and he emailed to me in October 2008.

To Whom It May Concern:
I have known Paula Rose as both a friend and client in my hypnotherapy practice over the past several years.
She has impressed me as a person of honesty and integrity. She keeps her word, and she has always been kind and considerate. In addition, she is good-natured and generous.
Please let me know I can be of any further help.

Page 1. Item 1. Anna states that she now lives in Key West, Florida. In my September 24, 2008 email to her, I asked her to provide me with her current address; she did not. Anna K. Sanders was living on Teach Lane, Cudjoe Key, Florida. The Monroe County Assessors Office shows that home listed in the name of Robert Holtry, Anna's former and perhaps current male domestic partner. Anna Sanders is listed as the owner of 531 Margaret Street, Key West, FL. That is the home that I worked on, and perhaps that is now where she lives.
Page 2. Item 6. Anna and Eric may have had a phone conversation as she states. Apparently, neither of them had asked Claire if she had recently spoken or emailed with me. See the email that I sent to Claire on July 22, 2007 about a book she and I had been discussing either via phone or email around that time. Only part of the Amazon email is shown below, to save space, and I have removed Claire's email address.

And perhaps Anna should have knocked on Mark's bedroom door and asked him if he'd heard from me, as he and I were exchanging emails around this same general "no contact" period she is referring to. I have removed his email address, mine is active.
I just bought a cheap Sandisk mp3 player. I can record all my favorite programs. Have you figured out how to use yours yet. use windows media, it is easy.
Also in Item 6. Anna refers to a conversation with a woman named Jade, and some statements which she claims Jade has made. Plutonium? I sometime use Petroleum Jelly a.k.a. as Vaseline on my feet, as they tend to have some very dry patches, which crack and bleed. See my personal check #1173, dated August 1, 2007 which I gave to my landlady on or before August 1, 2007, listed on a link under "Disclaimer and Mission Statement" section.
Item 7. Anna Kathryn Sanders states that she "called the LAPD station in Tarzana and filed a missing persons report." She also states that Jade did the same. The woman I rented from has the legal first name of Jewel, and she never mentioned any MP report to me.
Anna states that I made a call to a friend on July 31 to a friend from a pay phone at LAX. Last I checked, a Court Order is needed to trace calls, so who authorized that, and where is a copy? What is the name of the friend I supposedly called, and if it was from a pay phone, how can anyone prove that it was I who made the call? And why would that be important either way?
Anna states that LAX Police found my car parked outside the United terminal on August 1. Really? Did they tow it there, or from there, or did they only look at it? Was my vehicle parked outside the baggage claim, and was I in it? Was a citation issued? How about some facts, such as the Officer's name, time, location of the vehicle, etc.
Item 8. I have already made my comments about Jerry Zeiger, above.
Item 9. Anna and Jade may have had a conversation on August 3, as she states; I don't know and wasn't informed of it.
Item 10. Anna's comments here are her opinion of how Gail and I were interacting during the time frame of August 23 to August 26, 2007. Anna Sanders was not present, and she doesn't include Gail in the decorating process of my vehicle. Gail did provide a list of names, and I have it somewhere. It was with that amazing multipage letter Gail wrote to me and handed to me in person; where Gail also states that the Police were looking for and found me! There's an Unsolved Mystery right there: How could I have been "Found" by LAPD or anyone, when I was never "Missing" nor Lost?
Item 11. Anna states that my phone was disconnected when she called it on September 10. She was probably experiencing a technical malfunction, as my bill was current for that account, and my phone had been having malfunctions for some time. See my payment confirmation on September 9, 2007 below from Verizon. I disconnected my service from my old cell phone number and opened a new account with a 702 number at a Verizon store in Las Vegas during September of 2007, I don't have the exact dates handy.

Item 12. Anna and Eric might have had a conversation on September 11., 2007. He didn't mention it to me when I saw him, but he did mention Anna showing him the alleged Missing Persons report, when Anna was in Juneau during July of 2007. I asked Eric to show me the MP report which he claimed Anna had shown him, but he said he didn't have a copy.
Item 13. Below is the email Anna is referring to. I have removed her email address.
Item 14. Anna K. Sanders relates her version of my going to the Keys to visit in September 2007. See email exchanges below, I have removed their email addresses.

Anna's description of my stylish and travel appropriate ensemble is wrong. I was wearing a mulitcolored Blue, Grey, and Black print knee length wash and wear dress, had a black shawl on my arm due to the blasting AC on the flight, and an attractive pair of Tee Strap high heeled dress shoes, with a sturdy heel for walking. I had purchased the dress at Ross in Las Vegas, and had received several compliments on it, including from the car rental attendant when I returned the car prior to boarding my flight to Florida.
I was stunned to see that she was sporting a highly visible growth of hair on her upper lip, and she had gained approximately 15 pounds since I had last seen her. I assumed she was feeling a bit down over the slumping economy and her own financial position, and wasn't keeping up with personal grooming, and wasn't concerned about her appearance.
Anna's description of my hairstyle as "formal" would be more accurately described as "tidy, and classic." At times, I choose to wear my long hair in an updo, and secure it with wide jaw clips. A very sensible style for the hot and humid South Florida weather. Anna usually has her straight hair hanging down, or pulled back in a ponytail. Anna usually doesn't wear makeup, and her description of my eyebrows and lipstick are her opinion, and inaccurate. Sleeping on a cross country flight in the previous days makeup isn't usually going to give any woman her best look, but no "cartoonishly" applied makeup was on my face. Perhaps Mr. Grant would like to request the videotapes of the Key West Airport baggage claim during my arrival on that date, so we can all have a review of the appearance of Anna, and me.
15. Anna's words where she states, in her opinion, were my behaviors and facial expressions, are actually a much more accurate description of her own moods and words. And anyone who has ever seen her calculated and hostile looks and expressions, knows exactly what I'm talking about. In our historical family vernacular, Anna is known to be "owly", a term used by my Dad to describe her when we were kids; which in modern day shrink speak is known as one who exhibits passive aggressive behaviors. Anna has difficultly seeing her own personality flaws, and likes to view herself as a kind, caring, in touch with the workings of the Universe, enlightened New Age "Healer", of sorts. She can't quite pull off that Earth Mother/Spirit Sister act in private; as this unforgettable Christmas Eve morning 2007 recording proves. CLICK HERE!
Item 16. I've already mentioned my computer and cell phone malfunctions and interruptions of service in other areas of this website. and I have no idea what "five week absence" Anna is referring to in this paragraph. She'll need to give some exact beginning and ending dates that she is referring to, and absence from where? I had checked out a few possible rentals in Key West, and had determined that spending another winter in the Keys wasn't my best idea. The economy was in a major slump due to recent hurricanes, crashing real estate prices, and a lack of full time employment opportunities was making South Florida less attractive for living in. Mark did know that I was flying back to Los Angeles, and I asked him if he could drive me to the airport on the date I was considering booking a reservation for. He said "Yeah, sure." I had given Anna a $100 gift certificate to Amazon.com for her birthday while I was there, and left a personal check for $200 in her car to cover gas, etc. which she cashed. Mark and I made a couple of stops on the way to the airport on September 29, 2007; as I needed a new pair of reading glasses.
Item 17. The dates Anna gives here for my visiting in Oregon are incorrect. I arrived at the Parental Pad on Halloween night, at approximately 9:30 pm. I left their home on either November 20 or 21, 2007, just before Thanksgiving. Check out the emails in the "Round Robin Emails" section that Anna is referring to, and participated in also.
NOTE: During that almost three (3) week stay at my parents home, neither of them asked me about this alleged Missing Persons report or event, and neither of my parents made any mention about any unusual statements or emails from my siblings or others. And neither parent would answer my detailed questions via email to them at later times. See "Emails To / From Dad" and "Emails To / From Mom" sections.
January 25, 2009: For easier reading, I will add my comments and rebuttal statements to Anna Kathryn Sanders Affidavit here. The Copyright Office has requirements that need to be met, and I should have completed this section in 2008 to keep the paperwork and filing fees down.
Item 18. Anna's statements here are quite petty, and wants to make me appear to be less than the generous person that I am. I have previously stated that I arrived without gifts in another area of this story (and to them in person in December of 2007) because my car was packed to the gills, as I was considering living on the East Coast. I had planned to purchase gifts for all, and wanted to spend my money to help support the local shops and businesses. I had stated in an email to them on December 13, 2007, "Looking forward to seeing everyone at Christmas!! And as they say at some weddings and funerals "No Gifts, Please." I don't have room for anything more. Love, PR"
After that December 24, 2007 hostile outburst from Anna and Eric, who in their right mind would purchase a gift for either of them? Or want to accept one they had wrapped? Anna states that I recorded "at least one of these exchanges" on my cell phone. No, it was recorded on a device which Eric had purchased for me several years before, as a gift. She is correct that "The trip to town with Claire never occurred." If you had approximately 410 pounds of passive aggressive combined weight, with self defense training and karate experience in your face, you'd probably let the issue drop also. I never saw either Valerie or Claire crying as Anna states in this item, but I'm sure they were feeling the hostility flowing from many toward me. Gosh! I'd been invited to attend. See the December 16, 2007 email series where I replied to Anna's, and her statement of:
"My only request is that we each commit to treating
You betcha. Hear her warm and loving Christmas Eve morning 2007 words to me, with an accompaniment by Eric Swanson CLICK HERE TO LISTEN.
Item 19. As this is an Affidavit that Anna Sanders has signed, anything that she didn't see or hear first hand is "hearsay", and that would include these statements she has made, as with others throughout this Affidavit. And who cares what I said to my parents at any time? I could check on the email to Gail with the dates Anna has listed, but it isn't important.
Item 20. Great to hear which person was on the computer, as I know what IP address in Florida first found this website. Gotta love the statements made by Anna about my "rantings about conspiracies and government and family cover-ups." Say? No rantings on my part; I ask questions which others chose not to answer. Given the lack of response from the CIA and the State of Alaska to some of my emails, I'd say I could be onto something, even if the events were unrelated. "No reply is an answer", as my Dad once said to me. And there's no doubt about my being onto something doin' within my family and circle; I am the webmistress of this website. I see all; who's looking, and what they were looking at.
The 9/24/08 email Anna refers to is listed under the section
She did not reply to me about the contents I addressed in the email, or about the incidents that I was referring to.
Item 21. It's always insightful to know what people really think of you, isn't it? I know my sister Anna Sanders very well. She does a "build to suit" when any situation arises; including doing illegal (because she chose to not secure all required permits) modifications to her own home in Key West, Florida. She may have done so after the fact, but they weren't hanging on the wall when we were doing the work (which I didn't know at the time was illegal, but she did.) Her "heartfelt belief that Claire's health and well-being are best served by her father, Eric Swanson..." are additional statements that "Something's Up".
Eric Swanson broke the 2006 Child Custody Agreement and the Property Settlement Agreement, without using legal forms, filings, and methods to do so. Someone who knowingly breaks standing court orders without justification, and without using appropriate legal channels, isn't setting a good example for my daughter. And not one person from Alaska who has reviewed what I have written about those matters, seems to find his actions to be unusual, or out of line, based on what they wrote or told me. How strange, say others.
Any item which I may have not addressed by line item, does not mean that I either agree, or disagree with the contents. If it was unfavorable to me, I would probably disagree. For the ease of limiting my headaches with the Copyright Office, I will not change any of the material which I posted in 2008, above.
