            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.
