You must mistake me for an idiot!  Feel free to tell me (in writing) “what Anton Larsen said when the former President of Uganik Native Corp. could have solved all this…”  E-mails such as this one (where you refer to my father’s past actions as president) will get you no where with me!  I will reiterate that which I’ve said numerous times before – I am not my father!  You are dealing with Alyce Roberts and Alyce Roberts alone.  Got it?

 

Regarding your desire to retain counsel, as I mentioned in my last e-mail I

my favorite meal

am not necessarily opposed to retaining an attorney.  In some cases I think it is critical.  I just want to know what the costs are.   It’s foolish to retain an attorney with out knowing the costs. I am not going to vote on a blank check.

 

I hope that from this point forward we can resume correspondence in a more professional and appropriate manner.

The concern is Alyce it’s that we’re having to make to many decisions in a too small of a time frame without knowledge of this board. I for one am now comfortable with this without any legal help which in fact to does uganik stand without this. You do not want to hear what Anton Larsen said when your father could have solved all this but we cannot cry “over spilled at this point” so there you go,  Bottom line – litigation versus cost, why worry about dollars, and if so, why not have legal representation to tell is what those dollars are.? donenedoneniginal Message —–tratiorom: Alyce Roberts

By your comment “It’s pretty humbling” are you meaning that you are feeling bad that things aren’t moving forward more quickly?  If so, I share your concern.  I also agree that we need to move quickly and will likely support retaining Birch Horton et al to do it.  I just truly don’t have any idea how much $$ we’re talking about.

 

Thanks for the update and I’ll be sure to check e-mail tomorrow so I can respond timely to any e-mail you send.

I agree, I won’t do anything without anyones’ approval. I will await a call from them hopefully tomorrow. But Alyce, I’m getting calls from a lot of local shareholders willing to help out anyway they can, it’s pretty humbling.  They are old timers – anyway, so am i and I wouldin’t do anything unless approved.

I need to know the cost before I can respond.  I support the idea but I can’t support a blank check.  I am sure you understand this.

 

Thanks for your work on this.

I don’t know yet, but Alyce, I think we’re stuck between a rock and a hard spot. But before I do any thing I will always ask advice and approval.  But for now, we’re not in a big playing field to dwell on matters. But that is my own opinion.

Good evening everyone –

I have spoken to two corporations in the last two days since our ultimatum from the AJV attorney.

First Alan Schmidt – is busy and cannot help us.

So – in talking w/Anton Larsen (Martha Randolph) they used Burt Horton, Bittner and Sherow to develop their proxies and split the cost w/two other corporations.

 

They dealt w/a Cathy Black and a Suzanne Sherrow.

I called the firm and those two women still work there.  Also Roy Jones was the counsel for all separating corporations from the ajv and he is a consultant in DC today but available. (maybe)

 

My question to you: Can we ask horton,bittner and sherow to make a proxy for us. They’re experienced in the matter, it will cost us less money and less time.

I urge you to make a decision in this matter.

All else right now is irrelevant.

Audit takes two months and by-laws we’ve been in existence so to speak without them.  Get the vote out of the way and then we will not feel pressured.

 

Please let me know ASAP as the attorneys will call tomorrow, I hope.
