            Former Senator Ted Stevens conviction on charges of concealing gifts has been reversed.  In a Washington D.C. courtroom this morning, Judge Emmett Sullivan called the prosecution misconduct in the Stevens case, "the worst he'd ever seen," and granted a motion to reverse the conviction and drop all charges against the former Senator.

            Stevens told Sullivan his faith in the justice system is restored.

            Inside the courtroom after the ruling, Stevens and his three daughters hugged, and spoke briefly with former staff members. He left the courthouse arm-in-arm with his family, and paused for a smiling picture. Stevens ignored the waiting microphones, but he did say he had a simple message for Alaskans:

            "Tell them all I'm going to enjoy this wonderful day, that's all."

            As he got into a waiting van, Stevens said if he were his colleague Senator Robert Byrd, he would say Hallelujah.  The West Virginian Democrat is known for his "halleluiahs" on the Senate floor.

Teen Fisherman Medevac'd Off F/V Collier Brothers PDF Print E-mail

            An injured 19-year-old crewman was medevac'd from a trawler off Kodiak Island Sunday night. Coast Guard spokesman Kurt Fredrickson said an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Air Station Kodiak responded after the call came in at about 7:30 p.m. The chopper arrived about an hour latter and hoisted Michael Calahan aboard.

            Calahan was injured when his right arm was pinched in a piece of hydraulic equipment while working aboard the fishing vessel Collier Brothers, about 34-miles northeast of Kodiak city.

            The helicopter was called in after the Coast Guard flight surgeon on duty determined a medevac was the best course of action for the patient based on his reported injuries.

            The helicopter returned to Kodiak about a half-hour later, where Calahan was transferred to awaiting emergency medical technicians who brought him to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center. His condition was reported as stable.

            Helicopter pilot Lieutenant David Feeney said most medevacs from Kodiak are usually done in bad weather a long distance for shore, but weather conditions during the medevac saw winds of five mph, five-foot swells and scattered clouds.

            The fishing vessel Collier Brother is home ported in Portland, Oregon.

         On this week's show, the U.S. Attorney General wants former Senator Ted Stevens' conviction thrown out; The North Pacific Fishery Management Council is meeting right now in Anchorage; and shrimp fishing is returning to Prince William Sound. We had help from KNOM 's Paul Korchin in Nome, KCAW 's Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock in Sitka, and freelancer Mike Mason in Anchorage.

         Congratulations to our regular contributors who won Alaska Press Club Awards last week: Anne Hillman in Unalaska , Bonnie Sue Hitchcock in Sitka, and both Joe Viechnicki and Matt Lichtenstein in Petersburg were honored for their outstanding work.

          The Alaska Fisheries Report was awarded third place for Best Ongoing Public Affairs Program by the Press Club. It's the second year in a row we've been so honored. Judge Gabriel Spitzer, a WBEZ Chicago reporter, and a name familiar to Alaska Public Radio listeners as a former host of APRN's news magazine AK, wrote: "Not always the sexiest subject matter, but AFR does a solid job of crafting a comprehensive news source for fishing interests." The programs that finished in front of the Alaska Fisheries Report this year are the Alaska Teen Media Institute's "In Other News," and radio station KRUA's "Cabin Fever." Tune them in if you get a chance.
