Dear friends, I hope you are all doing well and healthy. We have had some amazing days here. The weather is funny. One day it feels 70 degrees and sunny, then the very next its wet, windy and chilly.
We have been kicking it downtown and doing touristy things. I never thought that I would say I love Anchorage, but I do. The parks, trails and waterfront, are all breathtaking.
Yesterday, we ventured out with the dog and kids to be tourist for the day. We bought chocolate, lattes and ice cream. We had fun and took lots of pictures. Anchorage is super dog friendly too. Cake Studio has BEST soy latte!
We watched the fisherman at Ship Creek, and then went to the boat dock and the kids climbed on the big boulders, as we snapped photos of the big land mass across the water, which we wondered. that Russia? Just kidding! We knew it wasn’t. Maggie, my little dog, scored when she found some discarded potato chips among the rocks…ick.
Tomorrow extreme disk golf.

Happy Sunday

Hello everyone. Today’s highlight was that we went to the market for the bear naming contest, and entered our suggestions. I read the op-ed in the ADN, and would like to say a BIG thank you to Professor Boraas. Thank you for your strength, bravery and your work. I feel a change in the air. As you know I have choose to walk silently, with dignity and not engage. I am appreciative of the ADN’s ability to allow fairness (even in op-ed) something that I believed had been lost

Today's Bail Hearing

Today was a great victory! We asked the court for reasonable bail conditions & the court granted these. I would once again like to say thank you to all those who have offered prayers and support during this difficult long journey. It has been a long road, and I know that this road is nearing the end.

This week four friends came into town, and my daughter returned from her one week return to home. I am so thankful for the time that they can spend with me here. I have dreamed about these moments for years.

I would like to thank all those who helped with the website. It is a grand task, still in progress. Since it's design is to hold (never online before) documents, pertaining to this case, I anticipate that it will be ongoing.

I would like to thank my friends at, who created a live broadcast of the hearing. It alleviated much tension to know that many supporters were there live with me throughout the progression. Most surprisingly was, when Brad Pitt, from within Terri's purse deployed one of his most memorable lines from Fight Club, loudly notifying the court the"The first rule of Fight Club is you do not talk about Fight Club, the second rule of Fight Club, you don't talk about Fight Club" Thank you Brad, for the humor and support. This was truly an icebreaker. I am downloading the ring tone tonight. :-)

I will be sporting a new ankle monitor adorned with GPS. I wore this for a year while out on bail in 2006-2007. I previously wrote a story on this blog about the transmitter box. Funny that a month in a half later we would ask the court for electronic monitoring.

I am especially thankful to my attorneys, John Cashion and Chester Gilmore. Without their diligence and knowledge, today's results would not have been possible. I constantly pepper them with questions, they are an endless fountain of information and patience.

I am thankful to the courts for granting me reasonable bail conditions

Please visit the website, frequently, as we will be building it up quickly as new motions are filed with the court, in addition to posting older records as they become available electronically.

Thank you to all

Opps, forgot to post Mechele's contact info for those who have asked. Her mailing address is: Mechele Linehan, PO Box 101342, Anchorage AK 99510-1342. Her email is!!

New website

Hi to all!! We are really excited about the new website that has been created! Many of you have asked for more legal info regarding Mechele's case. Well, here it is! Please be sure that you put when you try to access it. For some reason you have to put the "www" in. We will continue to use this blog site for the purpose for which it was created but wanted another venue that focuses on the legal aspects of the case. I hope you all will check it out. Mechele has really been busy putting this together as well as working on her case with her attorneys. We have another hearing on Wednesday regarding her very confined bail restrictions. Thanks again for all your love and support. There is someone that has posted several comments but unfortunately they are in chinese and I am unable to translate them! Will post more this week!!
