LEMOORE, Calif. (AP) — Sarah Palin is returning to Central California's agricultural region to speak at a community college, a year after secrecy over her contract to visit another school in the region drew intense criticism and scrutiny.

The former Alaska governor's June visit to California State University, Stanislaus generated controversy after the university's nonprofit foundation refused to divulge the terms of her contract and speaking fee.

The public university eventually revealed its foundation paid Palin $75,000 to give a 40-minute speech, and the event raised more than $207,000 for scholarships.

This time, West Hills College officials say their foundation paid the Washington Speakers Bureau $115,000 to land Palin.

They don't know the exact amount Palin will receive. But they say their foundation has recouped the fee by selling tickets to a private, post-speech dinner with the 2008 vice-presidential candidate.

Palin's Sunday appearance will inaugurate the college's newly built Golden Eagle Arena.
