-Friday means it's time for the Idaho Matters Reporter Roundtable where we get you up to date on all the news that made headlines around our region this week.

-Pancreatic cancer is hard to find and to treat. We take a look at the Purple Stride Walk which fosters awareness and education about the warning signs.

-A recent, and deadly, Boise house fire has a lot of people thinking about smoke detectors. We chat with Idaho Statesman reporter Katy Moeller who covered the story and learned a lot about fire alarms.
