"Something's Up" In America's Big Berg
Selected Poems from The Alaska Mystery Collection
and The Tree Series
by Paula Marie Rose
Mark appeared to be the "spokesperson" for the majority of the people who I emailed about the various topics and incidences. He answered some of them, but usually with a canned "Get Some Help" answer. He didn't answer most of the specifics, and his silence about Gail springing for her trip to Tarzana in August 2007 was stunning. He's usually got a great one liner handy, and he has historically made the funniest jokes about her being the Cheapskate in the family. She also knows it is true, and frequently refers to herself as "FruGail."
Below are a few of the most recent, or more informative emails from Mark. He has repeatedly mentioned government agents, spies, and people following me, but I never have. It is interesting to see that he has repeatedly over the last year raised topics that I haven't, so I finally stated that I have applied to the Feds for employment. Which could be the new Official explanation as to why I could have few interested in me, and mine. I have invited and warmly welcome all Federal agencies to have a Sniff in all of our nests. Shor Nuf do sound as if there is plenty for them to probe; especially a Poking Branch. Do be aware that there might be one or more branch possibly providing "Shade."
Being as he is a man, and knows a few things about cars, I thought he might have an answer for, or at least a witty comment about, such amazing properties being exhibited by inanimate objects inside my car. The answer Gail provided was less than a reasonable person could accept; automotive experience not required. Any dolt would know that a bolt cannot levitate and screw itself back into the original position.
It would have been much more like the Mark I know to say: "What the F***? Hell No! Loosen unaided, maybe. Parts Replace themselves?? you've got to be shitting me!! Jesus, Gail; give up on that QT crap!!"
And then CC'd us all with a few more lines in his more familiar style, instead of the unusually stilted and oddly worded emails his been sending to me since last August or so.
The most recent email between Mark and me.

Why are you going to Juneau during the 1st week of April? I hope it is to seek professional counseling for your Secretive Spy paranoia issues. Your bizarre actions are very disturbing to your family and friends.

Mark, You're still stuck on that old saw? Whatever for?
My being a freelance investigative journalist who calls a spade a spade is something you should admire, and be willing to assist in any way you can as a good citizen, to ensure that justice is served.
It's an old ploy to label those who uncover crimes and scandals others would rather let lie as "unwell" (several used that chorus at Christmas) or "needing psychiatric counseling." Even the CIA uses that one, according to something I read. I'm mildly surprised that my own family uses that label on me, in a variety of terms. Having an inquisitive mind, and the ability to analyze situations well is not always popular, but it is not "unwell" or any other label for mentally ill.
We all know this is a True story of incredible magnitude about Alaska and a full spectrum of crime, corruption, and people who were, and are involved. But I'm going to leave that for people with more resources to dissect.
Others suggested I should consider writing this as fictional, so that's the new direction. Writing something as fiction is much faster; as nothing has to be backed up with facts. You'll be known as Matt, the Yakutat Wave Rider, whose day job is a an alcohol counselor for the local Natives. No one will ever guess that's you!!
Paula, get some psychiatric counseling, please.

Hi Everyone and hello from sunny Florida!!
Wasn't 2007 an exciting year? I could do a recap of mine, but that would be redundant.
I'm busy with my research, and the depth and breadth of old scandals and coverups, alleged corruption and fraud , is truly astonishing. And statewide, not just in Juneau. Who'da thunk that so many people could be so easily bought off, and or coerced? But as Dad used to say "Everybody's hiding something" and "Corruption at the highest level." That was before I knew what the word "corruption" meant.
Someone suggested that my investigations could be "dangerous", which is silly. We have Police, State Troopers, CIA, FBI, a few honest DA's, and Whistleblower Laws to protect those who "rip the sheets off the stiffs" so to speak. Isn't that right?
Gosh, if I'm wrong about that, it's a damn good thing I have started a "Fictional" version of this story, which might actually be a plus. Here's a line you'll be sure to remember "...that Frozen Fiefdom which operates much like a Banana Republic."
Please email your character name of choice and any occupation you'd like to give yourself; Gail shall remain "Natasha" the double dipping agent for CIA and KGB, being as she already has chosen that name, and occupation, for herself. I suppose I won't be able to use the "*******" name as your employer; because that might actually lead someone to poke around at what's really going on at your Charlotte outlet. I can't "spill the beans!!" You will recognize yourself in the chapter "Cold War in Cotswald" That's the mall name where it's located, right?
And who could pass up the opportunity of Sharkey's name rolling into "Fin Grin?" I wish you would have had the suit on in this photo, ***. What a waste it was to have it rolling around in your SUV. Your character is developing into the Big Wig for bankrolling International R&D projects for wastewater management. The Nuclear development aspect of your real job at ***would have been much more exciting, but I'll be able to make sewage treatment appear glamourous and profitable.
I'll most likely leave Jay and Claire out of the entire story, being as there are already so many real life characters and events to wade through. I have another story which Claire is much more suited to be a character in. And someone intelligent might add things up and figure out "Gee, this story appears to be more than based on actual events; and doesn't that sound like the Sanders Family from Douglas?."
Although I will use Jewel in her real life day job of "Madam Jade" the Dominatrix. She loves attention, and even has personalized license plates to advertise herself. I'm surprised the CA DMV authorized them, I believe it's "Madam" and I have a photo somewhere. But hey, everybody's got to make a buck. "One Man's Porn is Another Man's Kink." It only depends on who is buying; if it's legal, or not
Since none of you have produced that alleged "Missing Persons" report which Anna supposedly filed on me, Paula Marie Rose, last summer; I'll have one created by the publisher to match my character name.
My pseudo name shall be "Emma" and my occupation is yet to be determined. Just as in Real Life!!! Can't get a job until I find a place to live. So I'll make good use of time and write this story in the meantime. Truth is stranger than fiction...
Peace and Prosperity to all in the coming year!

In the September 2007 email exchange below, Mark is replying to the email that I sent to him and several others while I was in Juneau to visit Claire and have a LookSee into all of the strange events, words, and claims by others. Notice that he mentions that I haven't been in touch with either of my daughters for 2 months, and claims that "no one knows where" I was, etc. HHHHMMMMM. That don't add up, as Jewel accepted the August 1, 2007 rent check, Gail physically saw me in Tarzana, CA in August, I flew from Juneau to LAX on July 3, 2007 after an approx. two week visit with my daughters and Eric, and was seen by thousands of people every day. What is he yammering on about? And notice that he never stated the key, yet ever absent information, about some problem that he and others appear to be so eager to assist me with, but never specified. "Help me get through" What???

Subject: Wow! Talk about overreacting,
can you just settle down? Speaking of unannounced, Gail did exactly that; and with her at my door. Acting like a twisted Nancy Drew and on some undetermined personal agenda. Seems to have developed an exceptional interest in the Fetish lifestyle too, as she spent hours chatting with my landlady and her unusual houseguest. And she couldn't wait to get in my car and cruise with the toys and posters. Two sides to every story. I was never missing, and there was nothing Psychic about Gail locating me. Shannon knew exactly where I live, as she has also been there (invited at that time.)
I'm in excellent health and having an enjoyable time, so everybody just mind their own beeswax and hive. If you have constructive ideas on how to maintain a PC from not being hacked, I've tried everything, and so far 2 down. Think I'll switch to Mac. Love, PR
