As these records are of great public interest, since they will be made available to the news media being carbon copied, I ask you to waive any exemptions to disclosing these records.
I also ask you to waive all applicable fees (search, retrieval, redaction and duplication) in the public interest.

I ask:
* if you determine that any or all or the information qualifies for an exemption from disclosure, to note whether, as is normally the case under the Act, whether the exemption is discretionary, and if so whether it is necessary in this case to exercise your discretion to withhold the information.
* in case you decide that any of the information is exempt, please explain how the interest in not disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in disclosing it.
* if you determine that some but not all of the information is exempt from disclosure and that you intend to withhold it, that you redact it for the time being and make the rest available as requested.
* if there is any information in these records which is private and you decide it is exempt information, yet it is in an otherwise disclosable document, please segregate the private information by redacting it while providing me the rest of the unredacted record.
* if these documents are available in an electronic format such as standard audio and video formats, Portable Document Format (PDF), eXtensible Style Language (XLS), MS Word Document (DOC), Hypertext Markup (HTM), Rich Text Format (RTF), plain electronic text (TXT), native email formats — like AOL for Windows, Apple Mail, Claris Emailer, Compuserve, EML, Entourage, Eudora, Maildir, MBOX File, Mulberry, Neoplanet, Outlook, Outlook Express, Outspring, Powertalk, Quickmail Pro, Thunderbird, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Yahoo Archive! — or as links to the Internet that they be provided to me in one of those forms, preferably in their native form.

I am willing to pay a fee of up to $50 for this request. If you estimate the cost of completing this request will exceed that amount, please contact me first before completing it with a fee estimate, so that I may narrow it. If this request would entail special searches which would incur search fees to me, please contact me first with a fee estimate.
Thank you for fulfilling my CPRA request in order to assist the government to protect my civil rights.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this request, or named parties have been misspelled, please contact me.
Respectfully yours, [signed] John E. Colby, Ph.D.
