            The Alaska Press Club held its annual convention over the weekend, and long-time KMXT contributor Maggie Wall once again won a top award for her work with the Kodiak Maritime Museum program "When Crab Was King."

            Wall took first place in the radio "profile" division with the story of Carmen Lunde and her years as the owner of Solly's Office bar in the heyday of the king crab fishery

             KMXT took third in that same category with a profile of 10-year-old local fiddler Sawyer Olsen.

            The Alaska Fisheries Report was recognized as the top ongoing public affairs program in the state, and the station took another first place ribbon in business reporting for the story of Kodiak-Kenai Cable Company's plan to run undersea fiber optic lines from Kodiak to Prudhoe Bay, making landfall at communities along the way.

            Former KMXT reporters found success at the awards banquet as well. Marcia Lynn, now with KBBI in Homer, won second place in arts reporting. Casey Kelly, now of KTOO in Juneau, won a first place ribbon for a story about a new type of windmill in Juneau.

            The Kodiak Daily Mirror, which usually brings home awards from the Press Club gathering, did not submit any work for judging this year.

            Alaska State Trooper Dennis DePrau said the fire started off of South Russian Creek Road next to a house. He said the source is stilling being investigated but it's likely to have started with a barbeque.

            The location of the fire was located at the intersection of Cotton and Layta and spread to near the feed store on Russian Creek Road.

            Women's Bay Volunteer Fire Department Chief Dale Rice talked live on KMXT's Midday Report.

            That complete power outage at 3:31 yesterday (Sunday) afternoon resulted from a problem on Kodiak's waterfront.

            Kodiak Electric Association spokeswoman Nancy B. Sweeney said a fault on the distribution line to the cannery from Shelikof Street to Gibson Cove cut off power for customers system-wide. She had no further details as to the cause. Power was restored to all customers within 15 minutes.
