            The KMXT Radio News Department once again did well in the Alaska Press Club Awards, handed out Saturday night at the end of the organization's annual conference.

            Maggie Wall won third place in Ongoing Public Affairs programs for The LegHead Report, her independently-produced daily look at the legislative process. Jay Barrett took second in that same category with the Alaska Fisheries Report.

            Barrett also won a second in Breaking News for his story about the sinking of the fishing vessel Northern Belle.

            Jacob Resneck won a pair of second-place awards. One, in the Government or Political Reporting category for his story over the advertising campaigns surrounding Proposition 1; and one for Comprehensive Coverage of the Alaska Aerospace Corporation.

            And the station won first place - again - for Best Daily Newscast. It's the fourth time the station has been so honored.

            Kodiak's other news outlet, the Kodiak Daily Mirror, chose not to submit entries into this year's competition.

            The Alaska Press Club is an association of journalists and media outlets in the state. The contest entries are judged by Outside experts.

          Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death for both men and women in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. This year alone the society estimates 141-thousand Americans will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and nearly 50-thousand people will die from it.

          Regular colonoscopies and other screenings can help diagnose and prevent the disease. And while the number of people getting screened is on the rise, only about 50 percent of those for whom the testing is recommended report having it done as often as they should.

          Casey Kelly has more on efforts to expand screening in Alaska.

            The House Thursday night passed the governor's controversial oil tax bill that is expected to make large reductions in state revenue. The plan's trade off is the hope that the tax breaks to the oil industry will increase now-stagnant production on the North Slope.

            Five members of the House majority voted against the measure that passed on a 22 to 16 vote after several hours of debate.

            Among those Republicans voting against the bill was Majority Leader Alan Austerman of Kodiak. He said he agreed with the need for lowering oil taxes, but he couldn't support the governor's way of doing it.

            A fugitive wanted by the Kodiak Police Department in connection with a vicious assault earlier this month has been apprehended in Homer. Robert G. Galvan, age 23, is suspected in biting another man's upper lip off during an early-morning fight downtown almost two weeks ago.

            In a written statement, the Kodiak Police say an anonymous tip led them to where Galvan was hiding. With the assistance of the Alaska State Troopers and the Homer Police Department, Galvan was located and arrested without incident yesterday (Wednesday).

            Galvan was wanted for multiple arrest warrants stemming from a felony assault which occurred in Kodiak on March 19th. Galvan will be brought to Kodiak to face assault charges.
