Well, here's an interesting news flash for you. Love her or hate her, you have to admit she draws a crowd and is one very interesting woman. NOTE: The "Nadine Bailey" referenced in the news clip below is no relation to the Bailey's catalog company.

REDDING, California -- Sarah Palin is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the Sierra-Cascade Logging Conference next February in Northern California. Sierra-Cascade Logging Conference executive director Nadine Bailey said Palin will kick off the weeklong timber industry gathering Feb. 8 in Redding, California. Bailey said the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee has not settled on a theme for the speech but would be stopping in Redding in part to promote her book. The book, "Going Rogue," will be released Tuesday. Tickets for Palin's appearance go on sale Monday for $54 and up. Bailey has declined to say how much Palin will be paid for the speech.

After a hiatus of a couple of years, Bailey's will be returning to the Sierra-Cascade Logging Conference in 2010. The Bailey's crew will be demonstrating the famous Lucas Portable Sawmill, so if you're in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by and say "hi!" Now I know what you're thinking and, no, we did not decide to attend the conference after hearing that the former vice-presidential candidate was the keynote speaker. Though I readily admit that I think it will be one very interesting keynote speech and I'm going to do my best to be there to see her.

Good cutting,
