Don Sullivan Train like a Pro
Posted: December 18, 2014 by Lee Seibold
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
I'll first say that people need to realize that dogs are not human. I've never seen another dog become pack leader by bringing food or treats to their pack members. In fact, it's just the opposite. Dogs use an increasing scale of consequences to gain leadership. Don's techniques mimic this scale of correction and are always firm enough for the dogs personality but never firm enough to hurt them or be considered "abuse". To think dogs will cease their unwanted behaviors without consequences is like telling a bank robber that they'll never get caught but they still need to get a job instead of stealing. Ha... I'd like to see that conversation! I can't even begin to say how many people need Don's help. He is often criticized for his techniques despite the tens of thousands of people and pets he has saved. His results are unmatchable. I have a Dalmatian and a Shiba Inu. Both of which would be facing euthanasia if I were using ANY other system. Within the first night of using his techniques, I knew our dogs would become the perfect off leash companions. I am 100% supportive that Don's techniques are in absolutely no way cruel or abusive. I looked for many other so called "trainers" who use "positive" techniques. I can guarantee you Don's techniques provide a more positive experience throughout the dogs life than any other system. All of his techniques are temporary. After training is over you are left with a dog you can trust for the rest of your life. For someone to discredit this amazing canine lover... it makes me sick. You have no idea how many people (including "professional" dog trainers) who need his help. It's sad to punish a viewing audience of a great program which they desperately need for the ignorance of a few "animal lovers". These despicable people would be the first ones who would wish to see criminals brought to justice in a "negative" way for breaking the law. I'd hate to see a world without consequences. And that's what these people are protesting against. If viewers aren't willing to donate money to a great cause because they disagree with concepts they don't understand, they need to change the channel and spend their money elsewhere. They need to swallow their ego and let the dog owner decide who's system is best for them.
The System Is NOT Based On Fear and Cruelty

In 2009 I adopted a Labradoodle who was estimated to be six months old at the time. After several months of trying to determine how I would train her (and she did need it), I found Don Sullivan’s equipment and methods. It was truly amazing to see how Fiona (her name comes from the TV show, Burn Notice, not the movie, Shrek :-) was transformed into an obedient, furry friend. She was and is not terrified of the equipment, the training, or me. Have you seen the videos of Don Sullivan with Judah and Izzy? They are not terrified of Mr. Sullivan. To the contrary, they look quite happy and content. After having great success with Fiona, and having enjoyed the process of training so much, I decided to start Prairie Path Dog Training on a part-time basis. I use Don Sullivan’s dog training equipment and methods, and it works. Because of the successes and my love for dogs, I am now starting a full-time business in Chattanooga – Blue Bridge Dog Training. The results of Don Sullivan’s dog training system, with no negative affects to the trainees can be clearly seen in two videos I created for my business. The first one is of Kora, a Shepherd mix, who is fearful and sensitive. She was adopted with those traits and has made tremendous progress. The video demonstrates some basic and more advanced commands, and she is certainly not afraid of me. She had ample opportunity to run away during the video, if this was the case… View it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=R44F8WSz8bs The other video is of both Kora and Fiona, demonstrating the results of boundary training, again having used Don Sullivan’s system. They are happy dogs, just having fun in the back yard – no fence in the back or north side, no tether. View it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th10PyLOlUE&list=UUAxigxsSR-Kg3yWdB4LMR5g Let me address some of the rather vitriolic comments posted by those who hail from the “positive reinforcement only” or “force free” community. I have seen it all before in another venue of “professional” dog trainers – a LinkedIn group. The approach is this: use words like torture, cruel, inhumane, barbaric, outdated, old school, and on and on. And that rhetoric, on its own merits, wins the argument, at least in the mind of the one holding that view. I posted this question, “Why is the "positive reinforcement only" community so negative with others who do not follow lock-step? Is there possibly a group of "other trainers" that use correction without being abusive?” Not one of the trainers participating in the discussion (655 comments) could explain why the methodology I used did not create a fearful and aggressive dog, as they always claim will occur – NOT ONE. That was in December of 2012, and Fiona is still not fearful or aggressive. I am a real person with a real story about real success, without abuse and cruelty. Just because you believe and state a dog is terrified, does not make it so. I am open to further discussion on the subject, and my contact information can be found at www.bluebridgedogtraining.com And just for the record, I am not paid by Don Sullivan, and I do not receive a discount or commission on his products. Merry Christmas!

Don Sullivan's training methods WORK
Posted: December 17, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
Thank you for making Don Sullivan's training system available to so many people. My dogs were impossible to walk together on leash. I went on to YouTube to look for training methods and happened upon Don's methods via personal testimonials. I then checked reviews on Amazon. I was sold. The negative reviews were from people who never tried his system! So I discounted them and ordered his collar and DVDs and started right away. And now I have dogs that I can walk in a calm and relaxed manner. And they lie down on command and no more overwhelming visitors at the door. Don Sullivan is making it possible for people like me to train our dogs to be great members of our family.

A Response From Don Sullivan,
Posted: December 17, 2014 by Don Sullivan
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
Hi everyone. This is Don Sullivan, and I have been asked to post a message by my business manager. Normally I don't say too much as I like to let people's real life experiences with my system speak for themselves. However, for the sake of all the dogs out there that are suffering, and for the sake of all the unknowing dog owners out there that are still struggling after having tried (and spent) so much, I will say my piece just this once. Readers, please judge for yourselves: Firstly, those who have posted negative comments on this page seem to be completely missing the point. PBS does a wonderful and admirable job of bringing many programs to people in order to help them. And, there are myriad exasperated dog owners and miserable dogs out there that are, indeed, in desparate need of help. If you don't feel that my program holds any value for you, or even if you completely disagree with what I share and demonstrate, then simply don't watch the show. But, I appeal to you to contain your emotions and personal opinions; don't ruin it for others who could very much benefit from my system. Let PBS do their job and offer something of value to those who truly welcome it. Secondly, doubters only have to Google my personal name, my moniker (DogFather), or my system (Perfect Dog system) and they find a multitude of people whose lives have been completely turned around (and that is no exaggeration) because they somehow came across my training methods. Read the language that THESE people use when describing the results they achieved (on their own, without me even being there in person, from a $60 training system!) and it truly brings tears to your eyes!!! In many cases, dogs lives have been saved just in the nick of time as many owners were on the verge of having their dogs euthanized or given over to shelters (where most would have been killed in the end anyway because no-one would have wanted them). There will always be critics of most products and services whatever they are, however if you're going to post copies of negative reviews of a product or service then you should be fair enough to also share the positive ones. To help balance out the commentary on this page, below I have posted some that I found. These are completely legitimate, unsolicited customer reviews of my training system. Third, everyone who has posted a negative comment about my methods has completely overlooked the fact that half of my training DOES very much involve rewards (praise, affection, play, and exercise - the best kinds of rewards) which would be deemed as the positive reinforcement side of my training. This tells me that these posters are very much unfamiliar with my training system and are making unfair judgments based on the very little they've seen on TV. IF you've carefully watched the full five hours in my DVDs, thoroughly read through my comprehensive and critical guide that comes with my system, physically handled and properly tested my training tools and techniques in the 70+ ways that I discuss and demonstrate (with an open mind), and still have concerns or criticsim, then I am truly all ears. To anyone else, I say that you are operating on limited knowledge of me and the system that has been proven over and over to change lives. Many critics are being driven by emotion, and their unjustified outspokenness can create a stumbling block for dog owners that are desparately searching for answers. THESE poor people HAVE tried what the critics are spouting as the answer and the "only humane way" for all, and they are at their wit's end. And, let's not forget their poor dogs that currently live miserable existences on leashes, are plagued by aggression or separation anxiety, and look at the unbelievably free and joyous lives of dogs that have been trained using my system and ache for a dream life like that! If you have achieved results with whatever method you use then fine, but countless others have tried these things and their dogs just keep getting worse. The bottom line is that it's wrong of critics to object to a show being aired that provides valuable information for viewers, and to act as though their voices reflect the opinion of the majority; they do not. Finally, please also bear in mind that most critics are not comparing apples with apples. They truly need to see the fullness of my system to understand the kinds of results that I encourage every dog that they can achieve. I'm not just talking about getting a dog to lie down, sit, stay, and come. This is where many people's mindsets are at when they choose to criticize my training techniques. Let's look beyond human emotion and let's consider the real subject here: our dogs and the best kind of life that we can give them - a life centered on safety, praise, affection, fun, and complete freedom. This is what dogs all over the globe are experiencing because of my system. Just because certain critics disagree with how these dogs got to this point, does it make it wrong? Thank you for reading. Sincerely, Don Sullivan. HERE IS JUST A SMALL SELECTION OF LEGITIMATE CUSTOMER REVIEWS THAT CAN BE FOUND ONLINE: ??The Perfect Dog® Infomercial Configuration??? . Very pleased ?I was very pleased with this DVD. He explains and shows very clearly how to train a dog and correct unwanted behavior problems. There is nothing in this video that could be called abusive, in fact he very clearly states that the training method is firm but warns there is no excuse for abusing your dog. There is a distinct difference. You must be firm and consistent in order for the dog to understand that the human is in charge, then all other training is much easier. By no means are the animals in this DVD being abused. Listen and read and learn how to train a dog or puppy for their well-being and your enjoyment of dog ownership. As far as receiving and condition of the product, I purchased the DVD without the training aids and wish I had purchased the training collar. The product came much quicker than the estimated time, was packaged well, and was as described. Janice ?? . ??2 Disc Training DVD Set ??? . The videos have helped us to keep our dogs safe and well trained. I have suggested the videos to my friends at the dog parks. My wife loves the videos?.?? . ??The Perfect Dog® Max Results and Care Package??? . I felt justified!! ?I am no professional, just a dog lover who has had some great dogs over my life time so far. After viewing Don's CDs, I felt justified in how I have worked with my dogs over the years, learning from my own experiences and that was presented quite clearly by Don's instructions. Dogs want to please, but dogs also look to the "lead dog" for guidance. Most dog owners don't realize that they are not doing their dogs any favors by letting them get away with things with no discipline and training in place. Don's lessons are basically short, full of good technique, good advice, and you get a happy dog who trusts his owner. This training does not "break" a dog, it just develops the bond between you (the lead dog) and your pet. I've loved every dog I've owned, as each was different in termperament and personality, but all were loving and eager to please because they knew they were loved, and that included the discipline that each dog had regarding how to behave when out and about in public. . ??The Perfect Dog® Infomercial Configuration??? . Extremely Pleased? I ordered the systems, because even though I had fairly well managed dogs, I had persistent problems with my lab and cockapoo (mainly just spoiled)....the usual, barking at passing cars or trucks, ignoring certain commands, surfing the counter for food, etc. I bought the system and truthfully, I fixed these after 2-3 corrections as shown...and not very aggressive corrections, I might add. Do yourself a huge favor! If you are having dog issues, this will teach you to handle...and quickly. I have both dogs doing perfect, sit, down, stay, and come...everytime. This is with just four days of 15-20 minutes a day. I am now working on begging for food and down from a distance. The other thing the videos don't really mention, but I have found it to be true is this..."the dogs enjoy the training, because they like time spent with you." I have recommended to a friend from church and she is ordering...you should also. ?wbb?? . ??Command Collar® and Training Lines??? . Unbelievable Results?Fabulous!!! It is beyond belief how this collar works. And so quickly. I'd carry flyers to hand out if I could. I walk in our neighborhood park where there are other people walking their dogs and I'd love to carry flyers about the Command collar to give them. The DVD that comes with the collar is also very good. My dog is small (10 pounds) ) but with a very high pitched, screaming voice. The command collar let him know not to do that in a very short time. Amazing results for a problem I had coped with for a very long time. ?Schnicklefritz?? . ??The Perfect Dog® Infomercial Configuration??? . Great gift!? Bought this for my husband. He loves it and he said it has helped him with dog training. It came with cd and leash. ?jedi jen?? . ??The Perfect Dog® Infomercial Configuration??? . DogFather is an understatement?I first got this video when I got my first dog Rain; she was a German Shep. My husband was deployed and he said the only way I could keep her was if by time he got home I had her fully trained. I saw how the stores trained their dogs with treats and I was not to happy with that. I personally feel that if I do not give my children a "treat" or snack every time they do something correct I am not going to give my dog one! This video amazed me on the commerical when I saw the man go inside and leave his dog off the leash under a tree and he did not move, or when the woman was vaccuuming the floor and her dog remained still. I wanted this video for that alone. My dog was sooooo trained that I had police officers w

Highly Recommend Don's Training System
Posted: December 17, 2014 by Bo Potter
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
I have trained two dogs with Don's system and I would highly recommend it to any dog owner. My dogs live half the time on our 76 acre farm in Ohio and half the time at our place in La Crescenta, CA with no yard. Needless to say they love the farm and hate it in California. A trained dog is very important here in California because of the cars. Before I started using his system, if the dogs got out they were g-o-n-e gone. I would grab the doggie treats and leash and hope that they didn't get run over before I could get them. Now, if I leave the gate open they don't even leave the yard. They used to pull on the leash and drag me around. They don't do that anymore either. They both follow all of the commands I give them. When I give them the down command they lie down immediately and they stay there until I tell them they can get up. They won't stay there for an hour but unless I forget about them, they're there for as long as I want. The bottom line is that this is a great system and I don't have to worry about my dogs getting hit by a car any more. Thanks Don, you're a life saver. Bo

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
I was about to give up when someone suggested I try Dons training videos. I admit I was reluctant to believe it was going to work. I have a Shepard mix that I got from a shelter. He is very hard headed, territorial, and dog aggressive. Well I have a new dog!! Oh he is still hard headed haha...but I now have the tools to control him. He is 6 years old now and we go to the dog park and I have not had any trouble! We go hiking and not only is he off leash but I used Dons training for my coon hound and was warned that I woukd never be able to have her off leash without st least a shock collar. Well I don't use a shock collar and she is off leash more then she's on and I have full control over my pack!! Sometimes it's not just one method that works. Maybe a mix of methods. But I assure you without Don my Shepard mix woukd not be the happy dog he is today!!

I have a German Shepherd/Pitt mix named, Twinkie. Before using Don's method, my life seemed impossible, because Twinkie wanted to eat the cat and chew up the house. Since adopting her, I have had one problem after another with her behavior. Don's system showed me that her trouble is anxiety due to poor leadership. She is now great in public, heals on a lead, and is the beloved family member we always knew she could be. It works on even the most stubborn dogs!!

I purchased Don Sullivan's Perfect Dog System several years ago when my dogs were about 2 years old. Up until that moment they were uncontrollable on leashes. I tried several methods like stopping, as it was written if you stop, the dogs will too. Not true. I needed specific direction on how to control my dogs while enjoying them at the same time. Don's Perfect Dog system was the key. It taught me how to train my dogs and become a proper dog owner. If I ever get another puppy I will most certainly use Don's system again! Mary Ann Rojas.

Don't Knock It Until You Try It!
Posted: December 14, 2014 by Jade Danko
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (11 comments)
Regarding the original post about Don Sullivan and his Perfect Dog system on PBS: I've spent thousands of dollars with 'positive reinforcement dog trainers' and had to give my dog up after his aggression problem couldn't be fixed. I since met Don and watched him turn hundreds of problematic dogs into great dogs. He and his methods have saved thousands of dogs and created loving relationships between owners and their dogs. Most people who have negative things to say about Don's system haven't even tried it. It's sad that many opinions are not based on fact and that they then influence others. Millions of dogs are euthanized every year; if the methods of training that are espoused by many on this forum work so well, then why are so many dogs put in kennels mostly for bad or problematic behaviors? My current dog was trained with Don's methods and is the happiest, well behaved dog I have ever owned. People marvel at her personality and her obedience level. For anyone with doubts, I suggest watching his work and reading a variety of what other people who have used his methods have to say, not just on one forum. I find that people on Amazon.com are very upfront and honest in their reviews. Overall, the reviews are extremely positive. Don't knock it until you try it!

Names of Two Pundits Forgotten
Posted: December 13, 2014 by Erich von Dalkenshield
Two pundits whose names I've forgotten appeared on Denver television, I believe on Channel 12 but they could have appeared on Channels 2 or 6, too. A man and a woman about 65 years old each, they used to "face off" for about 5 minutes each taking the opposite side of an issue. I have forgotten their names and want to know. I think the man's last name was Anderson. Can you help me? Thank you very much. Erich

Thanks for writing.  You are referring to the Head On program.  John Andrews and Susan Barnes-Gelt were the two pundits.   Susan Barnes-Gelt is still on the show but John Andrews is not.  Krista Kafer took his place.  It comes on at 6:57 p.m. on 12.1.

It looks this program is being distributed by PBS.  We are a 25% PBS affiliate so unless they open up the rights we may not be airing this program.  The best thing to do is to keep an eye on our website at www.cpt12.org.  We are scheduled out through January so you may want to check our website in February.

Judge Mablean's Comments
Posted: December 8, 2014 by Name Withheld
I watched one of Judge Mablean's episodes earlier this month and was appalled at some of her comments. She cited an example of what she did with a boy who had a habit of biting others. In order to "cure" him of this habit, she bit him. No respected judge would ever engage in such behavior. Does Judge Mablean have any awareness that her statement gives adults permission to inflict potential harm and pain on children? In Colorado biting a child could be considered child abuse, and Judge Mablean should certainly know the laws around that! Judges are supposed to protect children, not abuse them. Judge Mablean is an embarrassment to the court system. She and her theatrics should be removed from Channel 12 if dignified programming is to be preserved.
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email but Colorado Public Television does not air Judge Mablean’s Divorce Court. I believe the Fox affiliate KDVR Channel 31 and KCDO Channel 3 and 649HD does.
I got to agree with you though. An adult authority figure biting a child is child abuse and does not belong on a public television station’s schedule.
Sincerely,
Joan

Protests
Posted: December 6, 2014 by Tom Graham
Program: Colorado Inside Out (14 comments)
We were disappointed to hear Patty's comment on Friday Dec.5, that the Jefferson County students had a reason to demonstrate. Students were told that they would be "favorably looked upon" if they participated in the street demonstrations. The ostensible reason at that time was to support the teachers' sickouts. Those had been arranged by the teachers' union, which hired an organizer with money donated for that purpose from the State union. 44-48 union workers were sent from out-of-state to help. The reason given by the JCEA was a protest against changing the curricula. There never had been any change proposed or discussed. Board member Julie Williams had stated that there should be more positive content in history lessons. The disruptions had been planned a year in advance in order to start a recall to get back union control of the District for compensation reasons. Regarding curriculum changes, revisionist history dictated by the College Board has little information about WW II, George Washington, etc., but emphasizes the bad aspects of our history. We feel that there should be a balance with history of some of our heroes and aspects the great founding and protection against evils provided by the nation. Curriculum changes demanded by College Board are large with the hate-America message. Informed students want this.

Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (19 comments)
I just turned this program on and in the first minute the only true thing I heard was the fact that Monsanto will pursue its patents. I would never donate to a station that would present this fiction as truth. I just heard the person begging for $$ that it's "a little controversial" well no crap. When you try to pass of baloney science as science, it should be controversial. I have no connection with Monsanto or any seedstock company. What I have done is analyzed GMO grain to PPB levels and find NO DIFFERENCE chemically or nutritionally to legacy grains. I guess next it'll be HFCS you're lieing about. The guy talking right now (1.42 PM) sounds like some guy that would be selling magnets to purify your water. For a station connected with a premier science university, you should be ashamed for pandering to unscientific beliefs such as this.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your comments concerning the Gary Null’s Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs. I appreciate your research and expertise concerning the science of GMO grains.

Misrepresentation of Colorado Latino Forum
Posted: December 3, 2014 by Lisa Calderon
I am the Co-Chair of the Colorado Latino Forum Denver Chapter and we are requesting a meeting with the producers of Colorado InsideOut and management of Colorado Public Television 12 about the misrepresentation of our Sept. 24th Public Safety forum. The fact that no one from your show even attended our forum, yet spoke as if they had first hand knowledge of what transpired by holding a "Post Game" show on September 26th titled "Colorado Latino Forum discusses Denver's Department of Safety" without even one Latino at the table displays a serious lapse in journalist integrity and cultural insensitivity. The lack of Latino representation on your show is another issue of contention we seek to address. In the future, if you want to know our position, ask us directly, including reading our recently issued public safety recommendation report: http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_27058917/colorado-latino-group-blasts-denvers-criminal-justice-system.

Misinformation regarding GMOs
Posted: November 30, 2014 by Davy Brown
The program you aired entitled something like "Seeds of Death: Lies about GMOs exposed..." was full of misinformation and clever distortions of the truth. Worse yet, you did not provide equal time for any opposing points of view. Your program was nothing more than leftist propaganda and should not be supported by any public funding whatsoever. But since you do receive funds handed to you against the will of millions of Americans I demand you air a show regarding the truth about crop production in America as reported by those who understand the value and need for producing wholesome and healthy food that is affordable and abundant; in short, you can't feed an expanding global population without GMOs. It is the responsible thing to do. One of your "experts" was completely clueless (or simply dishonest) stating that milk and refined foods are somehow deadly GMOs. Please tell me, what genetic material are you consuming when you consume milk, cheese, ice cream or bread?? Ever herd of teosinte? Can you eat it? Would we be able to feed ourselves without modified teosinte? If you or your viewers can not answer these basic questions than YOU should be ashamed of yourself and your network for exploiting the ignorance of your viewers. Teach them in truth and fairness, rather than trying to dupe the ignorant viewer and fleece the unwilling tax payers please try contributing positively to our great country like the hard working folks at Monsanto, Haliburton, Microsoft, or any number of local Christian Churches. Try to accept this truth: The fields of corn and veggies you see all over the state of Colorado are GMOs to one degree or another. They would not grow here if they weren't. Your local grocery stores would not have food in them much of the time if food couldn't be grown locally, compliments of your hard working American neighbors.

Seeds of Death is complete BS
Posted: November 30, 2014 by C C
Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (19 comments)
It should be criminal to air such shallow and non authoritative documentaries. This documentary is complete BS they cover no real facts and merely speculate of the possibility of GMO harm. They also leave out ALL of the benefits of GMO crops which far out way the negative aspects of GMO, which until proven otherwise remains at ZERO. Also fun food for thought; Most "real" farmers aren't authors on the side and the leading voice in this mess of non scientific rhetoric is the one and only Bruce Lipton the same guy that says he can control plants with his mind and the list of other guest speakers I wouldn't trust to walk my dog. As an adult you're free to believe what you want, but there are kids that watch these shows and don't have the tools that most adults have to verify fact from fiction, so please stop spreading this crap!

Don't you need our Donations? CORRECTION
Posted: November 29, 2014 by tom rutter
Re: my complaint about the difficulty in being able to donate this evening. I stand corrected. I just went back online and figured out how to donate and get the dvd of tonite's program. It was actually quite simple once I settled down and found the correct Donate button. All the choices were there. So, folks, I still think it bears some investigation as to why phone donors, at least at 8 pm saturday nite, had a very difficult time getting through..but I thank the CPT12 staff for the well designed online donation system you have in place...it does a good job of handling a whole lot of variables. Please pass the compliment along... Sincerely, Tom Rutter

Thank you for contacting Colorado Public Television. We have forwarded your note to our call center so they can look into why there was such a long wait on the phones Saturday evening. Our hope (of course) is that there just were that many people calling in to pledge.

CPT12-- Don't you need our donations???
Posted: November 29, 2014 by Tom Rutter
After watching this wonderful special program, I tried to donate but couldn't. I'm a sustaining member of CPT12, but intended on making an additional $120. donation to get the dvd and send a "well done!!" message for your continued great programming. Well, I dialed the 800-690-5234 call in number...they aoto-answered on behalf of Colorado CPT 12, and said our calls would be recorded and that all staff were busy taking calls from other members. I tried twice, and waited almost 15 minutes each time. No one ever picked up the phone. Now I'm online, trying to figure out how to make that donation and get a copy of the dvd...and i've given up on figuring out how to do that as well. We all make mistakes. But mistakes like this are too costly...to you the station, to us as donors and to the public who needs what CPT12 has to offer. I think someone needs to be held accountable for a mistake like this to be sure it doesn't happen again. Sincerely, Tom Rutter 720-366-6106
Closed Captioning
Posted: November 29, 2014 by Gerald George
My wife is severely hearing impaired, although not so much in her earlier years as now, but relies heavily on hearing aids. She remembers very well the songs and influence provided by P,P$M. I too have lost some hearing ability and depend a great deal on CC. Unfortunately, the just presented program did not comply with ADA requirements of closed captioning. We have intended to contribute to this great program but became very disappointed that we had an extremely difficult time understanding the discussions, songs and comments made by the family and friends of PP&M. The lack of CC has occurred on many of your programs and is very frustrating for any hearing impaired individual that might enjoy your offerings. Please explain why this has occurred and hopefully it will not be an issue for future programming. Gerald D. George

Hello, Mr. George,

Thank you for taking the time to write to us and tell us about the lack of captioning on 50 Years with Peter, Paul, and Mary.   
Why there were no captions on the version we aired is a mystery - there definitely should have been.  We are having the show re-edited for it’s air on Wednesday 12/3, night at 7pm.

I am a long time viewer and fan of your program. Each Friday I look forward to hearing the diverse opinions from your panel on many of the local issues affecting Denver and the state of Colorado. I am not a fan, though, of your time machine episodes. I really don't want to listen to your panel play acting on issues which occurred decades ago. It may be interesting from an historical viewpoint, but it is not what I tune in to see. I applaud you for your creativity and many people may find it amusing, but it is not what I turn in to see each week. I am disappointed each time you air one of these time machine episodes and I miss out on a substantive discussion of current issues.

I cannot find European Journal anywhere on Direct TV. I used to record it on channel 12 AND channel 6. There is no information anywhere as to what happened to it. On your schedule it indicates that it will be on Nov. 26th at 12 pm, I think it said. When I look for future programs on Direct TV it is not scheduled, at least so far as Direct TV says. Also, what are channel 12.1 and channel 12.2? I have never seen that. On Direct TV it is simply called channel 12. Has European Journal been discontinued for good? I really liked being informed about what is going on in Europe. American TV does not do much of that. Thanks, Catherine Beyer

Colorado Public Television broadcasts three separate and distinct channels; channels 12.1, 12.2 and 12.3.

I'm giving Thanks today for Colorado Inside-Out. I don't know what I'd do without this show, especially during election season when I've grown tired of most of the coverage. But not your show which never fails to educate nicely. Thank you all for being so bright, entertaining, fun, and to-the-point. Keep up the Good* Work and have a great Holiday!

POV: After Tiller

Program: POV (2 comments)
Thank you so much for airing this very important and timely documentary. Like most people I thought the majority of abortions were performed as either a birth control measure or becausse the mother was high risk. I have learned so much from watching this program and only hope that more doctors have the courage and compassion to step forward and perform this vital service. I cannot even imagine that if those who are against third trimester abortions only knew the truth of why most women who have this done make a tremendous heart wrenching decision, that those people would probably make the same decision, too. There were a host of examples given in the program, however the one at the end was the most compelling for me. A woman in her third trimester was carrying her third child, a child whose bones were breaking inside the womb, a child who would have died an excruciating death with breaking bones at every turn had it been carried to term and survived for probably no longer than three or four years. Who would want their child, or any child to experience such appalling pain? I used to say that I would never have an abortion myself, but that I did not feel it was my duty to deny any other woman that right. Now, I can honestly say that if I were to be pregnant with a child who was found to be in mortal fetal distress in the third trimester, yes, I definitely would have that abortion! Why would anyone deny a child the right to die peacefully rather than go on to live a few years in horrible pain? I believe there is only one God, yet my God is merciful; my God is Love. Thank you again, CPT 12, for airing this extremely informative program! I can always count on you for compelling stories, documentaries and news.

Program: SEAN-NÓS (1 comment)
I happened onto this flicking through channels while eating lunch. TG4 is the Irish language channel of RTE and has several fine traditional music programs. This one features top-notch sean nos (old style) unaccompanied acapella heavily ornamented singing that is mind-blowingly beautiful. These are not the rowdy come-all-ye's sung by stout men in cable-knit sweaters, nor the high-gloss stage productons of the Riverdance/Celtic Women/Cetic Thunder type, but the artists of all ages giving us their own interpretation of a centuries old tradition. The focus is on the song and the singer, not on the show and the production, and all the better for it. I'll be telling all my friends into trad music about this.

Is it possible for the international crime mysteries to be shown on channel 12 coming out to Denver. We use to get 12.1, but DirectTV cancelled this channel. We really enjoy these mysteries and we don't have the ability to do streaming and we are out of the antenna range for our TV. If you could just add these mysteries to channel for 7PM showing like the old channel, we would be externally grateful. Thank You
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email. I have forwarded your suggestion to our Programming Department.
In the mean time, you do have an option with Direct TV.
 
  • MHz programing is still available at no additional monthly cost from Direct TV. It is part of their 'world direct package'. It does require a second , larger satellite dish to pull in  several free stations. There is a modest $20 fee for dish handling, but no installation fee or monthly subscription cost.  The number we were given that takes you to the right department  at Direct TV is 800-378-3309. To clarify, this second dish is normally for those wishing programming in foreign languages for a fee. The several 'public interest channels' (like MHz) are free.
 
If you have additional questions you can call us from Monday-Friday 9-5 pm and ask to speak with one of our Technical Service representative at 303-296-1212.
 We would like for DirecTV to continue to carry our 12.2.  If you agree, please call DirecTV at 1 (800) 531-5000 and let them know.

Late-term abortions

Program: POV (2 comments)
I am very disappointed to see that you are airing a program about late-term abortionists. This is the most dispicable and horrendous procedure imaginable. It makes me sick to my stomach. I think this is even the second time you have aired a program about this. I have enjoyed many shows from you, but I will not be supporting you anymore.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email, feedback and past support. You are not the only one who was offended  by the airing of this program.
After Tiller is a controversial film about a very controversial subject.

To say that this show is nothing but a Liberal fest, would be putting it lightly, it seems you use to have some opposing opinion on this show. Get that woman from Westword off of there, she doesn't have a clue! What's with all the Attorney's on this show, Penn needs a vacation. I couldn't believe that these people felt that 100s of millions in cost over runs is okay with the hotel there building at the Airport, but these people are members of the party that has put this country another 7 Trillion in debt during King Obama's reign. I have to say that your show will be off my list from now on. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

If the head of Xcel didn't make $140,000,000 last year maybe they wouldn't have to rape the consumers for more and more rate increases. People on a fixed income like myself have enough on our plate.

Words 1st / Safest Star line Host Black History Month Space Colonization Summit
Posted: November 21, 2014 by Dr. Doug Haynes
Words 1st / Safest Star line Host Black History Month Space Colonization Summit Charley , ' Lind and Doug will be presiding over our first Omnibus Prime new space Colonization summit will be conducted right here in Denver Colorado during Black History month (02-20-2015) at our community's national recognized Five Points (Blair-Caldwell) African American history research library) from around noon to 4:00 pm. More info at www.blueridgeairlines.com colonization link pages, or Dr. Doug Haynes 720-434-0183. The subject matter presented during our black history month summit will be centered around and guided by the recently published literary review contents, as contained within the book named Asela the Oracle, Not only Dr. Doug Haynes, but many of his famous family members and friends have co-authored this well referenced work of literary art to focus professionally on exploring each and all of mankind's ancestors efforts to survive it all. We fell down and got right back up. That means that this trials and tribulation based study of mankind's historical plight to get to where we are today takes the time to examine the pros and cones of our 13.5 billion year old trek / migration efforts across our ever unfolding new spaces aloft and or as contained all around us. Asela the Oracle, which is also pointed at soon becoming an uplifting self-esteem movie and television series, revels the true story of our ancestors, such as Dr, Haynes own famous families, historical migration patterns across the face of the heavens and earth. For example famous members of both the original Givens / Jeters associated family structure, such as the Haynes family own Abner, Marques and even locally Denver known Allegra Happy Haynes, along with other national and international members like Orenthal James / OJ Simpson and president Barack Obama are proudly highlighted and profiled in the book. As we know many members of society such as these individuals serve to represent the best of mankind's ups and downs of today as we now collectively seek as a species permission to penetrate deeply into the new more bountiful spaces aloft. After honoring locally famous Africa Americans such as Dr. Haynes three primary role models Ed Dwight ( the first Black Astronaut) Omar Blair (one of the famously known 99th aero squadronsTuskegee Airman) and as always his dad, Mr. Haynes, who taught him the most a bought aeronautics. We will also take time during the first Omnibus Prime new space Colonization summit to educationally connect with the youth of Colorado. This will be done by conducting one of our typical, 20 year old, aviator’s kid camp's seminars / competition events. Dr. Haynes black history educational Kid Camp's seminar on the 20th of February next year will feature a presentation that seeks to contrast the basic differences between endorsing antiquated, dangerous and over polluting 20th century based rocket powered space flight activities used today verses his vastly superior, 21st century, new wave, USO UFO flying saucer hosting technology's. Not only will the Omnibus Prime space Colonization summit’s kid camp strive to introduce the children of Denver to the use of our Star- trek and Star- wars lookalike drones but it will also provide an opportunity to allow our future Sacernaut passengers their first opportunity to the opportunity to view one of the Haynes Saucers “SI-fi like” twin parachute aided ejection pods. Stop by and start you journey toward becoming not just an outdated Astronaut but the more fashionable Saucernaut enthueses of the 21st century. Its time to get mankind's past present and future story book right at last Pleases feel free to stop by and interject your feelings about migration to space with BRNS and what you can do aloft right now to make it happen sooner than later for us all. Its time to head back to the stars from which we came from at last As all-ways God bless you and yours.

I too am moving to Longmont and also am distraught that classical stretch is not on M-F. It's one of the main reasons I support my current PBS station. The program benefits people of all ages, athletes as well as those in need of rehabilitation. As a health care worker,I've seen good results when my patients have followed the program regularly and have come to depend on it for my own health and flexibility as well. I hope your programming department reconsiders and puts it on at 7 or 8 every weekday as well. Public tv needs to be supporting people to exercise more, and regularly. especially in this sedentary age.

I've enjoyed some of the programming you've ben making available about American Indians. I wanted to let you know that I'd be particularly interested in seeing the NAMA awards show on Thanksgiving Day (or the replay on Saturday, the 29th). It seems like it would dovetail pretty nicely with the other good music programming you already do. Also, my wife and I like your new digital channel available on our cable system in Greeley (not sure when that began ... we'd been away from home for 6 weeks). Keep up the good work!

Programmin - foreign shows
Posted: November 6, 2014 by Antonio Saraceni
My wife and I were really enjoying channel 12-2 which offered foreign programs from Italy, France, Germany, Sweden, etc. Recently we noticed that you are not broadcasting on 12-2 anymore and therefore these programs don't seem to be available. Is this a decision by KBDI or by Direct TV. What can we do to have these programs back? Thank you.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
 
Colorado Public Television’s  KBDI channel 12 upgraded  it’s signal to high definition. Direct TV has a policy that only allows 2 of our standard definition or one high definition channel to be carried on their system. Direct TV dropped the 12.2 MHz  Worldview Channel on October 15th.
 
We do have a few options for our MHz fans. You can:
 
If you just need to tweak your existing antenna,  check out some tips from the CPT12 engineers, or contact CPT12 for over-the-air signal assistance.
  • MHz programing is still available at no additional monthly cost from Direct TV. It is part of their 'world direct package'. It does require a second , larger satellite dish to pull in  several free stations. There is a modest $20 fee for dish handling, but no installation fee or monthly subscription cost.  The number we were given that takes you to the right department  at Direct TV is 800-378-3309.

Posted: November 3, 2014 by Shahn Sederberg
Hello, My name is Shahn Sederberg, and I am the Communications and Multimedia Manager for CDOT's Division of Aeronautics. I recently produced a short video that documents some of the challenges that Communications Technicians with the Governor's Office of Information Technology face when maintaining and repairing Colorado's network of 12 mountain weather reporting systems. The majority of these systems are located well above tree line in the Colorado high country. This video will give you a quick view of what it takes to first access these locations and the obstacles technicians face once they reach the sites. I thought perhaps this would be a good piece for your programming. I'd be excited to answer any questions you have regarding the video and I hope you enjoy the content! http://youtu.be/jzxlC8JOHwI?list=UU0WFfiQ-SE4kV07saKZdueA Shahn Sederberg Communications & Multimedia Manager Colorado Division of Aeronautics 303-512-5257 shahn.sederberg@state.co.us

Program: Colorado Decides 2014 (8 comments)
I so appreciate CPT12 interviewing political candidates; so thank you. I especially appreciated your interviewing the Green Party candidate, though it would have been better if the candidates supported by the richest corporations were not separated from those who are candidates who do not accept donations from corporations, after all we have learned that separate is not equal. I do however underatand that if some candidates refuse you can only repirt that and not force those candidates to provide their words to the public at the appropriate invitation. I would like to comment on the issue of water since you brought it up with the candidates for District 2 US House of Represenatives. It is interesting that neither the Republican nor the Democrat stated that it is a great destruction of water to use it for fracking. Fracking takes 3 to 5 million gallons of water for every well that is fracked and there are over 30,000 wells in Colorado. The oil corporations add at least a ton toxins, including benzine to the water, which means it cannever be used again for agriculture, drinking, wild life or anywhere there is living things. Certainly the oil corporations should not recieve subsidies nor our clean water to destroy. It would also be helpfulto the public voters, as ypu are trying to do, if you could have a list of the bills that have been introduced during the incumbents term and why or why not they signed the bills. This will also,allow the public to know what and where to find these bills because sometimes candidates say they are against issues, but they actually sign the bills that support those issues they say they are against. Certainly Polis's bill he created for strategies for tax cuts should be brought out and Udalls bill on the NDAA that he signed, as well as any money that Polis has signed over to support the military, which says he supports continued actions of force around the world. Another element that would help voters, is to describe and explain where to find decisions the judgeshave made for those that are being asked to be retained or not. It does not really tell voters enough to give personal information about the judges, they need to hear about the actual cases and the judges decisions in the cases. Finally on the issue of GMOs I would like to state my opinion. I vote Green and try to eat and support Green as opposed to Orange; that is destructive Agent Orange the designer and profiteer of agent Orange also creates most of the GMOs. The company that has been responsible for majority of these creations is Monsanto. The Monsanto corporation lied with knowledge about 1,000s of disabled US soldiers, the chemical killed 10's of 1,000s of men, women and children and has caused DNA damage resulting in ongoing10s of 100s to 1,000s of deformed babies. Why shouldn't I have the right to know if Monsanto gets profits from my buying their creation in food I purchase in the stores! I do want to end this with a reminder that I started this comment with a thank you for working to inform the public and though am encouraging you to take it a step further and giving my opinion, I still so appreciate what you have done.

Thank you to CPY12, encouraging it to go further, and my opinions on the ballot contents
Posted: November 2, 2014 by Susan Hall
I so appreciate CPT12 interviewing political candidates; so thank you. I especially appreciated your interviewing the Green Party candidate, though it would have been better if the candidates supported by the richest corporations were not separated from those who are candidates who do not accept donations from corporations, after all we have learned that separate is not equal. I do however underatand that if some candidates refuse you can only repirt that and not force those candidates to provide their words to the public at the appropriate invitation. I would like to comment on the issue of water since you brought it up with the candidates for District 2 US House of Represenatives. It is interesting that neither the Republican nor the Democrat stated that it is a great destruction of water to use it for fracking. Fracking takes 3 to 5 million gallons of water for every well that is fracked and there are over 30,000 wells in Colorado. The oil corporations add at least a ton toxins, including benzine to the water, which means it cannever be used again for agriculture, drinking, wild life or anywhere there is living things. Certainly the oil corporations should not recieve subsidies nor our clean water to destroy. It would also be helpfulto the public voters, as ypu are trying to do, if you could have a list of the bills that have been introduced during the incumbents term and why or why not they signed the bills. This will also,allow the public to know what and where to find these bills because sometimes candidates say they are against issues, but they actually sign the bills that support those issues they say they are against. Certainly Polis's bill he created for strategies for tax cuts should be brought out and Udalls bill on the NDAA that he signed, as well as any money that Polis has signed over to support the military, which says he supports continued actions of force around the world. Another element that would help voters, is to describe and explain where to find decisions the judgeshave made for those that are being asked to be retained or not. It does not really tell voters enough to give personal information about the judges, they need to hear about the actual cases and the judges decisions in the cases. Finally on the issue of GMOs I would like to state my opinion. I vote Green and try to eat and support Green as opposed to Orange; that is destructive Agent Orange the designer and profiteer of agent Orange also creates most of the GMOs. The company that has been responsible for majority of these creations is Monsanto. The Monsanto corporation lied with knowledge about 1,000s of disabled US soldiers, the chemical killed 10's of 1,000s of men, women and children and has caused DNA damage resulting in ongoing10s of 100s to 1,000s of deformed babies. Why shouldn't I have the right to know if Monsanto gets profits from my buying their creation in food I purchase in the stores! I do want to end this with a reminder that I started this comment with a thank you for working to inform the public and though am encouraging you to take it a step further and giving my opinion, I still so appreciate what you have done.

Finding Movies in German with English subtitles
Posted: November 1, 2014 by Karen Karvonen
Is there anyway I could find out in advance from the schedules posted any German foreign films/series programming? It's a great way for me to expand my conversational German. Thanks! Karen Karvone
CPT12 Response:
We receive MHz over the internet from Virginia and broadcast it out on 12.3 (also Comcast on 252).  We don’t have influence over the signal and merely list it from their monthly update on the schedule.  The best way to find shows you might be interested in is to go to the MHz Networks website or our CPT12 website.  For your convenience, I’ve included links below.

I voted for president Obama I believed him when he said I could keep my health insurance if I wanted to. He lied, I could not keep it. Mark Udall, whom I also voted for tried to cover this fact up. While they are all in Aspen or Martha's Vineyard... I am still paying much more for my health insurance...because the insurance I wanted to keep was taken away from me and my middle class family.

Prop 105
Posted: October 26, 2014 by Name Withheld
I am usually impressed by your programming which often include topics out of the mainstream or subjects that are often so controversial that others choose not to air. I was happy to see that you were airing a debate on Prop 105 only to find the opposition was someone brought in from outside Colorado. Though she has her reasons opposing GMO labeling, she does not live in Colorado and I believe lacks the vested interest in how the outcome would truly affect the lives of Colorado residents.
channel ..12-2
Posted: October 25, 2014 by John james
i don't think most viewers of channel 12-2 care about HD programming. We want the channel 12-2 the way it was. There was no need for this change.
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email. We are not happy about the situation with Direct TV either.
You do have some options if you would like to continue to enjoy MHz Worldview programming
 
If you just need to tweak your existing antenna,  check out some tips from the CPT12 engineers, or contact CPT12 for over-the-air signal assistance.
  • MHz programing is still available at no additional monthly cost from Direct TV. It is part of their 'world direct package'. It does require a second , larger satellite dish to pull in  several free stations. There is a modest $20 fee for dish handling, but no installation fee or monthly subscription cost.  The number we were given that takes you to the right department  at Direct TV is 800-378-3309. To clarify, this second dish is normally for those wishing programming in foreign languages for a fee. The several 'public interest channels' (like MHz) are free.
 
If you have additional questions you can call us from Monday-Friday 9-5 pm and ask to speak with one of our Technical Service representative at 303-296-1212.
 
We would like for DirecTV to continue to carry our 12.2.  If you agree, please call DirecTV at 1 (800) 531-5000 and let them know.

Help in researching a previous show that aired on PBS
Posted: October 24, 2014 by Name Withheld
Hello, I'm a freelance reporter currently working on a story for This American Life. I'm trying to find any information regarding a show that use to air on channel 12 late in the evening called BPM. It would play music videos but did not feature a "Vj". I'm having zero luck finding any information on the Internet, can you help? What I need is when the show first aired and ended. If there is an archive of music videos that were played on it, that would be great! Any information will be helpful and greatly appreciated. Stephen Sanchez 720-496-9736
CPT12 Response:
Our records only go back as far at 2000 and the first instance of B.P.M. is on June 6th, 2000 at 12:00 am.  It’s last airing was September 4th, 2004.  It was produced by Music  Link Productions which also provided Eleven and Music Link, alternating in the midnight slot on other days.
 
As these shows were not produced by Colorado Public Television we don’t have any shows or clips available for distribution.

NO CAPTIONS!!!
Posted: October 23, 2014 by John Mengel
Program: NOVA (1 comment)
I am Deaf and I have noticed in the last few months that you station has become more and more lax about turning on the closed captions. I have always noticed that your locally produced programming has few if any captions, but now standard PBS programming ling NOVA seem to have "lost" their captions on a regular basis, and even the programming that does have captions suffers from up to 10 minute long "drop outs" where the captions just disappears. For a so-called community based service you claim to be this is a intolerable situation. I have attempted to contact you and noted your seeming lack of sensitivity many times in the past, and have noted other Deaf also have complained of this situation. At this point I am very tempted to contact the Gallaudet Law office to see about perusing any legal means of correcting this, it has become so intolerable. This failure of providing captions on already captioned material is blatant discrimination of the deaf and against current laws and your ignoring the situation runs totally counter to the community based image your station attempts to cultivate.
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for contacting us with your closed captioning issues.  We have checked several NOVA programs in real time to ensure the captioning, and we can see them on our end.  All of our channels are set to pass thru all captions.  Also, our Master Control Operators monitor Closed Captions on all our channels, and would notice long periods of drop-outs.
                In order to trouble shoot the issue more thoroughly, may I ask how you receive our channels?  I ask, as some carriers can strip out captions.
                Also, Colorado Inside Out and Devil’s Advocate both have captions.  Are you receiving those?
                As our dialogue continues, please feel free to e-mail me directly with any programs (specific airdates and times) that you are not receiving captions.  My direct e-mail is : swicks@cpt12.org
               
Thank you for helping us to provide better service for all our viewers-

Local Death With Dignity story!
Posted: October 21, 2014 by Robert Mitton
Hello, My name is Robert Mitton. I am fifty-nine years old and live in Denver, Colorado. At age fifteen, I contracted an acute case of rheumatic fever, resulting in long-term damage to my heart. In 1999, I received a replacement bovine aortic heart valve via open heart surgery. That bovine valve is now close to failing. I don’t have much longer to live. I have chosen not to undergo another open-heart surgery. In January this year there didn’t appear to be any other viable option. My doctor gave me six months to live. My heart has weakened over the past two years and I haven’t been able to do much physical activity, nor have I had the ability to focus enough mentally to continue my web consulting work (SEO and website design). Unable to work, I have exhausted my savings and currently pay my expenses with help from friends and donations from others. As my end approaches, I have decided to self-deliver rather than suffer as an invalid in the last part of my life. Unfortunately, since self-deliverance, or aid in dying, isn’t legal in Colorado, I’ve had trouble finding a safe and reliable way to end my life. I had planned on self-delivering when my health decreased to the point where pain was overwhelming or when I could no longer move around enough to do daily activities, such as shopping, cooking, and cleaning. However, because of my dire financial situation, I have had to also consider self-delivering before my medical criteria were met, in order to not spend the end of my life homeless. Self-deliverance, aid in dying, or dying with dignity is an important topic. The well-known situation with Brittany Maynard is an example of this. This topic is going to continue to grow in importance and public awareness as “Baby Boomers" continue to age. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my personal situation, aid in dying, or my struggles to obtain medical and social services. I don’t have much time left, but I’d like to try to speak out on these issues if possible. Thanks for your time and consideration. Please contact me at your convenience. Sincerely, Robert Mitton (720) 435-9205 http://dying-with-dignity.blogspot.com/

Dropped Programming
Posted: October 20, 2014 by Name Withheld
WOW - Glad to see comments from other disgruntled viewers of the International Mysteries on MHZ Worldview due to CPT12 no longer providing. DirecTV states it has to do with limited bandwidth. HMMM!! Have watched some on computer live streaming but couldn't get it tonight at 10:00PM Doesn't want to come up -- wondering why? Please negotiate something with DirectTV to get this back.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  DirecTV has a policy that a station can carry 2 Standard Definition (SD) or 1 High Definition (HD).  We just ungraded to HD.  Both 12.1 and 12.2 (which DirecTV carry) were upgraded to HD and they dropped the 12.2.
 
We would like for DirecTV to continue to carry our 12.2.  If you agree, please call DirecTV at 1 (800) 531-5000.
 
We do have a few options for our MHz fans.
 
  • Watch it live on our website. You can stream your favorite Mhz programs at the same time you would normally watch them on TV.

Program: 9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out (4 comments)
Many, many thanks to Colorado Public Television for the courage to air this controversial material that, in my opinion is must see, as painful as it may be. I am incredibly heartened that this is now being televised! I was a commercial jet aircraft mechanic on September 11, 2001 with extensive experience working on 757 aircraft amongst others. Within a couple of months of that awful day, I was convinced that the world was being lied to. It was the story we were being told about what had supposedly happened in the Pentagon attack that initially sparked my skepticism. I pored over high resolution photos of the impact site, photos posted on the Pentagon website, photos taken by Pentagon photographers, photos moments after the tragedy and later after the smoke cleared. In my years as an FAA Airframe and Power-plant mechanic, trade magazines were ubiquitous, I viewed countless articles of aircraft crash sights; one thing common to them all is identifiable aircraft wreckage, from seat cushions to landing gear, turbine engines, the tail section, etc. Yet there was no photographic evidence of 757 aircraft wreckage at the Pentagon. And in the earliest photos, the façade of the building is fully intact yet there is virtually no aircraft wreckage on the lawn; apparently we are to believe the entire aircraft went through a small hole or window or completely disintegrated. So was born my disbelief in the official story. But I have found that convincing others has been a near impossible task; most folks do not care to even talk about it at all. So I am extraordinarily heartened to see that your station is putting this before a much wider audience because the world should know the truth of these evil deeds. I don't know what happened on 911, but I do know that the official explanation is a lie, plain and simple. Thank you CPT12!

I noted that Directv recently dropped the KBDI station that had the international mystery series each night at 7:00 PM and repeated at 10:00 PM. On my subscription it was posted as KBDI-2. I am extremely disappointed since I watched these series frequently. Could you please advise as to the status of the contract negotiations and whether your station will be available once more to Directv subscribers? Thank you.

Seeds of Death
Posted: October 18, 2014 by Jerry Romero
GMO'S ? whole Foods, Organic Bananas, etc. We know they are there but we feel they are a personal preference for people that don't mind paying more for food. We also know that organic food does not last as long as the food everyone else buys. Is it better for you than what is on the store shelves.? What evidence is there that it is.? We don't know nor hear of any adverse problems with regular food. Outside of what eating too much causes. I found this program interesting but the subject needs more public exposure both pro and con. Amendment 105 will probably fail due to the lack of knowledge rather than opposition of GMO's. The selling point being food prices will rise-a no-no in todays economy.

We are bitterly disappointed to see that we no longer receive channel 12.3 with the International Mystery series and other good programming. We watched this via Directv and we heard after the fact that it is no longer offered. We would like to watch this programming, but the only place where apparently it still is offered is Comcast.

Aspect ratio etc.
Posted: October 15, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Music City Roots: Live From the Loveless Cafe (1 comment)
Why is the aspect ratio on your station so inconsistent? I wanted to watch Music City Roots (10/14/14, about 11:30pm) but it was pillarboxed when it should not have been. The CPT12 logo was in the lower black bar so it was definitely a problem at your end, not mine. I tried to adjust it via my tuner but it said "Aspect ratio cannot be changed on this channel." The following program, Woodsongs, also was broadcast at the wrong aspect ratio, but instead of being pillarboxed it was stretched from 4:3 to 16:9. I tried to watch Music City Roots anyway, but the audio/video sync was off by a good 100ms or more (video trailing audio), which for music is more than I can tolerate. Sync was almost right on Woodsongs. Oh well, there's an episode of Law & Order SVU on that I haven't seen so I'll just watch that instead. Thanks for your time.
CPT12 Response:
We upgraded to HD last Wednesday  on our primary channel 12.1. If you receive us over-the-air with an antenna or on DirecTV the aspect ration problem should be resolved . If you’re a Comcast viewer, you will see our HD channel on October 23. If you receive us on Dish, you have to wait until January to see the change. Let us know if this doesn’t correct the problem for any reason.

Colorado's child welfare system
Posted: October 13, 2014 by Rosemary Van Gorder
Program: Colorado Inside Out (14 comments)
Why no program on the state of Colorado's child welfare system? Why did Governor Hickenlooper cancel his Capitol steps grandstand with the state department's executive director Reggie Biccha two weeks ago? I suggest its due to planned opposition from citizens who want this Governor to address significant problems in his state department. He is asking for $10 million dollars and 600 more caseworkers - will that be the answer? We need to look closely at his solution. The Ombudsman Office failed its state audit. This Office is legislated to provide accountability for county department complaints in the state-run system. As predicted, it failed because it is under the control of CDHS. Please consider this topic for showing. I would suggest the following guests: Dr.Charles Corry, founder of Colorado's Equal Justice Foundation(EJF.org)and Dr. Richard Wexler, National Coalition for Child Protection Reform http://nccpr.info/richard-wexler.

Program: Lidia's Italy in America (1 comment)
I have to say that what I am about to point out cannot be lost on everyone except myself. And it is this: Has anyone noticed how fat and overweight and unhealthy-looking Lidia Bastianich is looking??? I have no criticism of her personally of course. . . .But here is the REAL problem...........If I want to end up looking like Lidia all I have to do is eat her food. Which is loaded with fat, fat, fat. I have watched her pour .. . and I mean POUR. ... olive oil on everything she cooks. If I ate that much olive oil in my home - with my husband - we would both be looking like her. I'm sorry. . .but we have to be honest here. Take a look at Lidia's arms - the flab and fat just hangs and swings. The fat is all around her face and abdomen. I am so sorry . . .but I don't want to look like Lidia Biastianich. She is an overweight - fat - woman who should not be giving anything sort of "healthy" food advice. She's a darling heartfelt woman..............but not anyone whose food suggestions I want to follow. I want my health = and I want it for my family too!! GEB. BTW - why doesn't public television require that the "chef's" of their cooking programs be required to share with the public their blood work: cholesterol, HDL, LDL, etc. I WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED BEFORE I WOULD FOLLOW THEIR RECIPES.

Station unavailable
Posted: October 11, 2014 by Elizabeth Kenaley
Program: International Mystery (6 comments)
There is a message on my directv guide that says " as of October 15th this station will be unavailable". This refers to KBDI 12 and the 12-2 which carries MHz network. That brings me to the reason for this e-mail. I have been watching this programming for several years and find it to be most enjoyable, especially the International Mysteries. I have contacted directv and MHz but received nothing in return and no explanation for removing channel 12 from viewing. Is there anyway that I can continue to watch MHz International Mysteries? An answer would be most appreciated. Thank you, Elizabeth Kenaley eken1929@me.com
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
This month Colorado Public Television’s  KBDI channel 12 is upgrading it’s signal to high definition. Direct TV has a policy that only allows 2  of our standard definition or one high definition channel to be carried on their system.
You will still continue to receive 12.1 soon to be in HD on your direct TV service but they are dropping the 12.2 MHz service after October 14th.
We do have a couple of options for our MHz fans.
Lastly, CPT12 would like to have DirecTV continue to carry MHz. If you agree, please call DirecTV at 1 (800) 531-5000 to let them know.

Health in all it forms is really a RELATIONSHIP with REALITY.
Posted: October 5, 2014 by GREGORY MELLOTT
Program: RACE TO NOWHERE (2 comments)
The real bottom line to UNDERSTANDING is having a valid relationship to whatever/whoever ones needing to relate to. Obviously if part of the goal is one's happiness that needs to be related to properly also. We are only a minisculed child to (God's) full reality. Engineers commonly do not try to have the details of a matter in their head; rather they note well how to get it. Reality rules, including our own abilities, limitations, and desires as human beings. So if we wish to actually build a better future we need to focus on developing a better relationships between each human and the rest of reality. I personally leaning is that learning really never starts or ends and that we all would be better of having competing institutions of thought (one that seeks a future that they believe is the best for people) that people can relate to as freely as possible. That way the people will at least be more likely to find a focus for their efforts will inspire them. It may end up that there will be a rewards system developed by such institutions that are more based on records that can be reviewed and reassessed as the institutions endeavors meet unexpected changes along the way. As long as the basics for survival are present, that only should mean that we may have learned something new that we need to note well for our posterity sake so it is not repeated; and not something that destroys one's future.

Is it true about DirecTV?
Posted: October 4, 2014 by David Canaday
Will DirecTV be discontinuing its subscription to CPT12? According to DirecTV's on-screen guide, "KBDI 2" will no longer be available after October 15th. If this is true, their decision is undoubtedly related to the progressive nature of your programming; information that is censored by the corporate media. If CPT12 will no longer be carried by DirecTV, will Dish Network carry it? I will definitely switch, if so. If not, I will cancel my satellite service completely, as I've been very disappointed with the poor quality of the programming for some time. If DirecTV is cancelling your channel from their lineup, I will definitely lodge a protest with the company when I cancel my subscription. This would be the last straw for me with DirecTV. Please contact me to let me know. Thank you for your courageous programming. --David Canaday

MHz WorldView
Posted: October 4, 2014 by Name Withheld
I am deeply disappointed in the decision to drop 12.3 on Direct TV. There is little to no true international news on U.S. news channels. Yes, we can get access via the internet. However, we record such programs as Intl Mystery. I have contacted Direct Tv as well. They have provided no information on why 12.3 is being dropped, just that they will now carry 12.1 and 12.2. They should carry all 3 in lieu of dropping 12.3
CPT12 Response:

Coats v. Dish-the state is arguing MMJ is illegal at state level
Posted: October 4, 2014 by Kathleen C Chippi
Program: Colorado Inside Out (14 comments)
I enjoyed you discussing Coats v. Dish Network tonight (Oct 3, 2014). I hope you continue your coverage as this ruling will effect all cannabis users (employed or unemployed and business owners) in Colorado and set precedent nationwide. A ruling on (cannabis) "rights" will also impact: occupational licensing, housing, child custody, gun rights, government aid, student loans, insurance, unemployment, freedom, qualifying for organ donation, banking etc. I have an amicus brief in Coats v. Dish Network under the Patient and Caregiver Rights Litigation Project (PCRLP) represented by Andrew Reid of Springer and Steinberg, Denver. We have been seeking clarity on A20 in the High Court with these arguments for the last four years. We have the only brief in the mix of 8 that actively argues against federal preemption and one of two that argues in favor of fundamental constitutional rights. Two things I have not heard discussed anywhere are: 1. Michael Evans, Brandon Coats attorney, conceded to the Colorado Supreme Court that A20 does not legalize medical marijuana at a state or federal level and A20 provides no "rights" to qualifying patients or caregivers. 2 (a) The Colorado Attorney General's Office amicus in Coats argues that medical(and A64)cannabis is still illegal under state law, not just federal law. (concerning quotes from it below) (b) At the same time the state of Colorado is arguing to Judge Madden in Denver District Court that taxes and licensing fee's collected by the state from A64 and MMJ are lawful and not money laundering for an "ongoing criminal enterprise". The state and the City of Denver argued that "corporations (like themselves) were exempt from the federal CSA". Judge Madden seemed surprised and intrigued. I hope I am not the only one who finds it ironic that the state is arguing in one case that all cannabis is illegal for citizens of Colorado while arguing it is legal for the state and local government to launder 'illegal drug monies' in another. Does the state really believe voters voted "YES" on A20 and A64 intending on 'legalizing' the states money laundering in an "ongoing criminal enterprise" while keeping it illegal for friends, family and themselves? Somehow it's illegal for pot shops/employee's/related 'industry' to use banks but it's legal for the state to launder millions through JP Morgan Case? How does that work? Andrew Reid, of Springer and Steinberg, Denver writes: “Given that the State of Colorado runs an established MMJ program, including licensing and taxing, its position in its amicus brief is outrageous. Its position is that the government of Colorado and the individual governmental officials are engaged in abetting violations of federal drug laws. The Colorado Attorney General is essentially subjecting all state officials who participate in the MMJ program to federal prosecution for violations of federal felony drug laws.” Reid contends that patients will be harmed if the Court of Appeals ruling in the Coats case “that federal CSA criminalization of marijuana covers the lawful use and possession of medical marijuana under state law” is allowed to stand. Reid maintains that dozens of “occupations, occupational licenses, permits (guns included),and state benefits” will be denied to thousands of legal medical marijuana patients because “their possession and consumption of their medication” would be considered illegal. The PCRLP brief in Coats can be found at cannabislawsuits.com Concerning quotes from the AG's brief in Coats: “Contrary to popular perception, Colorado has not simply legalized marijuana for medical and recreational purposes. Instead, its citizens have adopted narrowly drawn constitutional amendments that decriminalize small amounts of marijuana for patients with a debilitating medical condition, at issue in this case, or for recreational use by adults over the age of 21.” … “… invoking the language of “rights” would only lead to confusion as citizens and jurists alike may misunderstand both the nature of the right and the scrutiny associated with the right.” “The State of Colorado contends there is no reason in this case to address the question of describing the medical use of marijuana as a “right” under the state constitution. Resolving this case does not require this Court to reach the question of what type of a right, if any, protects medical marijuana patients and caregivers. As a matter of statutory interpretation the undeniable and unambiguous illegality of marijuana under federal law answers the question in this case.”… “If the Court chooses to describe the use of marijuana as a “right,” however, the Court should act with caution…. To the extent any level of review is appropriate, it should be highly deferential as to capture the spirit of the voters who enacted a specific, criminal-law focused provision. Any other result would undermine the need for the executive branch and the General Assembly to regulate and legislate in this complicated and fluid policy arena.” … “If the People want to enact a broadly applicable “right’ to use marijuana as the dissent in Beinor declared, then a new amendment to the Colorado Constitution should be required.” Considering The Attorney Generals job is to represent/defend the people of Colorado and sovereignty, one has to wonder: 1. How many “citizens and jurists” believe the state needs “a new amendment to the Colorado Constitution” in order to (really) legalize medical marijuana? 2. How many agree that the Colorado Supreme Court “invoking the language of “rights” would only lead to confusion” for “citizens and jurists”? 3. How many agree “…there is no reason in this case to address the question of describing the medical use of marijuana as a “right” under the state constitution.” 4. How many agree the AG should be arguing for federal laws over the state constitution? 5. Does the AG support the arrest of Governor Hickenlooper, the Board of Health, the General Assembly, the DoR and other local government employees? 6. How many Coloradans feel like they are being represented and/or defended by the AG? 7. And food for thought: Why did the AG bring A64 cannabis into their opening paragraph in this 'voluntary' brief in Coats (MMJ), submitted 30 days after the AG read all the other briefs? After I read the states arguments in Coats (something voters have had to wait 14 years to hear) I was thrilled to be included as a plaintiff in Denver District Court represented by Robert Corry: NO OVER TAXATION, a Registered Colorado Issue Committee; LARISA BOLIVAR, an individual; MIGUEL LOPEZ, an individual; WILLIAM CHENGELIS, an individual; KATHLEEN CHIPPI, an individual; JOHN DOE, a pseudonym for an individual; JANE ROE ENTERPRISES, a pseudonym for a Colorado entity, Plaintiffs, v. JOHN HICKENLOOPER, in his Official Capacity as Governor of Colorado; STATE OF COLORADO DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE; MICHAEL HANCOCK, in his Official Capacity as Mayor of Denver, Colorado; DENVER TREASURY DIVISION; Defendants.

shallow work on the GMO propostition
Posted: October 3, 2014 by Name Withheld
This is for the Colorado Decides show tonight (10/3/14). I've researched GM foods and written extensively about them, including numerous quotes from scientific research organizations. I'm so disappointed by the the obvious lack of host preparation tonight! And clearly, the anti-105 spokesperson had her talking points down, well practiced and superficial (typical straw man, fear mongering and exaggeration), but delivered with confidence. And the hosts seemed to find her empty rhetoric credible?! My view is that if you are claiming to explore issues like these, the hosts need to do their homework! There was very little truth uncovered tonight!
Cancelation?
Posted: October 3, 2014 by Laszlo Pook
We receive your programs via Direct TV. We have four questions: 1. Just today we saw anote sayong KBDI2 will not be avaialble as of 10/15/14. Please tell us why not? 2. If you drop KBDI2 where can we pick up the international news and the cooking programs prevelant on that channel? 3. Also, for the past several years there has been a confusing mix-up between what Direct TV showed as channel 12 and 12.1 and what you display on your web site as 12, 12.1, and 12.2 and 12.3. Could you please clarify. 4. On many occasions we noticed that the program contents advertised do not match what is actually broadcast. Why is that? And can you correct it - it is rather annoying as it is.
CPT12 Response:
This month KBDI channel 12 is upgrading it’s signal to high definition. Direct TV has a policy that only allows 2 standard definition or one high definition channel to be carried on their system.
 
You will still continue to receive 12.1 on your direct TV service but they are dropping the 12.2 MHz service.
If you have high speed internet you can stream the MHZ from our website.
DirecTV will no longer carry Channel 12.3, MHz Worldview after October 14, 2014.
But we have a couple of options for our MHz fans!
Antenna note:
If you are interested in a professional antenna installation or just antenna advice, you can receive afree initial consult and advice from a local installation company, FREETV.
Just need to tweak your existing antenna? Check out some tips from the CPT12 engineers, or contact CTP12for over-the-air signal assistance.
CPT12 would like to have DirecTV continue to carry MHz. If you agree, please call DirecTV at 1 (800) 531-5000 to let them know.
 
DirecTV’s 12.1 is our 12.1 and DirecTV’s 12.2 is our 12.3.  That’s how DirecTV put 12.3 in their channel line up.
 
For your last question I assume that you are referring to 12.3 Megahertz Worldview.  We receive 12.3 via the internet from Virginia.  Megahertz Worldview makeup the schedule.  We have no control on the schedule or content of the programs.

Channel 12-2 on DirecTV
Posted: October 2, 2014 by Ricardo Bracho
I also saw the message on my DirecTV guide saying channel 12-2 (KBDI2) will no longer be available starting October 15th. What is the reason?. Is DirecTV the only provider dropping this channel? I was already moving to Dish because of the PAC 12 channel and this would definitely help me make the move right away. Thank you
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  DirecTV decided to no longer carry our Megahertz Worldview 12.2 station.   They are the only provider who will be dropping this channel.  Dish only carries our 12.1.  If you want our channel you can get it by streaming online on our website,  getting Comcast, or an Over the Air antenna.  If you are interested in the antenna Brian Cavanaugh can help you with that at 303-452-5254.

KBDI off Direct TV
Posted: October 2, 2014 by Name Withheld
Why is KBDI being taken off Direct TV? My understanding is that this station is a local channel and should continue to be carried. My DSL connection is too slow to watch on the computer, even considering that I have better things to do on the computer than to only watch television. The television is for television programs. My computer is for working.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  DirecTV decided not to carry our Megahertz Worldview 12.2 station any more.  We would still like for them to carry our 12.2.  You could get an antenna and watch Over the Air.  Brian Cavanaugh can help you with that if you have questions at 303-452-5254.  Or, you can switch over to Comcast.

Replay of Ken Burns The Roosevelts
Posted: September 30, 2014 by Gary Toub
I enjoyed watching your airing of Ken Burns The Roosevelts. I would like to watch some of the episodes I missed, but it appears to no longer be available online or through Comast On Demand. Will you be airing it again soon or making it available online again? Is there any other way to watch a few of the episodes other than buying the entire series?
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
Colorado Public Television did not pick up the broadcast rights toThe Roosevelts. Rocky Mountain PBS, Channel 6 did. You may want to contact themhere to see if they plan to re air it.
The Ken Burns series is available for purchase through Shop PBS . Amazon offers individual episodes and the entire series for streaming for a price.
You may want to check with your local library. It would not surprise me that they would have a few copies available for circulation in the near future.

If they are, in fact, safe for human consumption, as they suggest, than there would be no further discussion. Resistence to this legislation is admission of guilt, as it were, that they are hamful.

Caption makes NO sense on Newsline - disappointing
Posted: September 29, 2014 by Name Withheld
I have been repeatedly disgusted with what appears to be personal discussions along with news not translated to make any sense. Tonight "Sod Off' and "Dumbass" appeared during serious news. Does anyone ever check on what is going out over the air with what is supposed to be translated? Most newscasts make NO sense in content of conversation on NEWSLINE which I would really like to see (in my case read) - just because we can't hear does NOT mean we are stupid and cannot make sense of the written word either.

Denver Union Station celebration
Posted: September 25, 2014 by Edie Bryan
Program: Colorado Inside Out (14 comments)
This Saturday, September 27, the Colorado Rail Passenger Association is celebrating 25 years of advocating for more passenger train service. Come and celebrate with us 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 at the newly refurbished Denver Union Station. Come lift a glass with us, also 2 panels on where we've been and where we're going in the future. Phil Washington, ceo of RTD is featured speaker. This could be included in the "say something nice" segment, maybe by Patty Calhoun, or someone else. 25 years ago Denver Union Station was in danger of being abandoned with AMTRAK trains to go to a metal building in Brighton. The public rose up but there was no group to take up this cause. Ever since, the Colorado Rail Passenger Association, called "Colorail" has advocated Denver Union Station.

CPT12 Response:
Jim Samples,
 
Thank you for contacting Colorado Public Television regarding your pledge for David Perlmutter’s Brain Change package. It looks like the email address entered in the website when you pledged differs from the one you used to send your questions, so I apologize if you didn’t see the receipt we sent on September 17th. I’ve included the receipt below.
Please note that the shipping for thank you gifts can take up to 6 weeks from the point of payment.
This is because we do not pre-order merchandise. We order thank-you gifts from a variety of vendors as pledges are received.  We feel it is a better use of our members’ donations to invest it in our programming, rather than having those resources tied up in a warehouse of non-returnable merchandise.  The Perlmutter items are on order, and a fantastic group of volunteers will package and ship them out as soon as they arrive.

Program: Take Back Your Power (11 comments)
As someone who once thought that smart meters and the smart grid were actually a real solution to climate change, I have come to realize after four years of independent investigation into this issue that nothing could be further from the truth. Where are the studies that show a cradle to grave analysis showing actual carbon reductions? There are none, and the industry relies on false propaganda and paid off scientists to make these claims, as well as those dismissing fire and health risks. The manufacturing and energy consumption of millions of "smart" meters themselves and associated wireless infrastructure is significant. Smart Meters save no energy according to Reuters: http://bit.ly/gvpYxZ The reality is that if we allow utilities and corporations to dictate the solutions to climate change, then we are in trouble before we even begin. The real solutions to climate change are all about localization, including wresting power from monopoly utilities and putting the power back in the hands of local communities. Of course the utility industry hates that idea. Wireless tech is one of the fastest sources of carbon emissions- to say that smart meters will help with climate change is deeply misleading. If people had said "oh well I guess the horse has left the barn" when DDT was still being sprayed on children to control lice and we began to realize the dangers, how many more kids with cancer or other developmental problems would we have today? We need to take responsibility- both personally, professionally, and as a community for reining in this toxic technology as more research surfaces, especially where our kids are being exposed. Thank you to CPT12 for airing this crucial and independent controversial film! Let the open debate continue!

Thank you for airing the documentary about smart meters. Skeptics as well as Interested viewers might want to watch the European documentary "Microwaves, Science and Lies" to learn about the international debate concerning the safety of microwave radiofrequencies. Many Americans are woefully misinformed about the science that is shaping policy in other countries, especially environmentalists promoting smart meters. Nations dominated by their military-industrial complex are ignoring biological impacts. Not only is the wireless industry using the same techniques as the tobacco industry, but it is using the same scientists. The burden of proof is on the industry to prove that the technologies are safe.

Program: Take Back Your Power (11 comments)
On Saturday, 400,000 people participated in a historic climate march in New York, with millions around the world. Given the urgency of climate change and capitalism business model of encouraging greed and profits before human society, we need to stop falling for false solutions - like smart meters - to climate change. All electrons are local. The sale of kilowatt hours is based on the archaic centralized utility monopoly model. We need to urge our local politicians to confront the electrical-industrial complex which serves its own profits before the needs of the individual. Smart meters only benefit the utility, the manufacturers, and politicians who erroneously champion them in order to boost their image as green. In all likelihood, most politicians are too deeply in the pockets of industry, so we will need to do it ourselves. There is an inherent conflict between an electricity grid which relies on base load generating power and the fundamental transformation to renewable energy based on distributed small scale solar and wind. Utilities will never make the change to renewable energy if it kills their core business model of centralized energy production. We live in a time of both great peril and great opportunity. We desperately need leadership to forge a path based on wise understanding of what a truly sustainable smart grid would look like. We need to revise the architecture of the power grid before escalating crises force us to deal with it. Tremendous opportunities lie ahead if we can see past the archaic centralized electricity generation model, which can no longer sustain contemporary economies and societies, to a more economic and efficient scenario whereby free renewable sources are prioritized and local opportunities for power generation are pursued.

"Take Back Your Power" is Neither Scientific Nor Responsible
Posted: September 23, 2014 by Gary Nakarado
Program: Take Back Your Power (11 comments)
Smart Meters and the "Smart Grid" are actually important elements of moving toward a sustainable world. Take Back Your Power is a hatchet job that seems to argue that because early smart meters caused fires the whole concept is evil. I am certainly not saying trust the utilities, or the NSA, but this "documentary" is using things like scary music and even an elderly lady talking about Nazis to spread fear about a potentially important element ins reducing the damage caused by our present energy system. The only "scientist" on the show, Dr. Timothy Schoechle, is quoted on your site as follows: "In this Skype interview, Dr. Timothy Schoechle outlines his concerns about "smart" meters, including possible invasions of privacy and wasted taxpayer money." Those are issue that are real and worth working to address, although smart meters are certainly not the top of anyone's list of major privacy or wasted taxpayer money concerns. However, most of the show is simply irresponsible fear mongering. KBDI owes the public a real debate, with real Colorado experts.

Your programming is not worth watching. You have become shills for the utilities and coal industry. Ugh. Thank god for independent programming on the internet. I won't waste my time any longer on so-called "public" TV. You are letting down not just the community, but your own children.
"TAKE BACK YOUR POWER" Is an embarrassment to anyone who has donated to KBDI
Posted: September 20, 2014 by Gary Nakarado
This program is doing a horrible disservice to the community. While there are issues that are important regarding radar dangers, care with electronic and magnetic fields, etc, this production is just like handing out loaded weapons to 4 year old boys---it is dangerously misleading, and potentially far more damaging than any genuine danger posed by the smart grid. I am a former Colorado Public Utility Commissioner, and KBDI owes the state an apology, and genuine and valid information, though this program is causing damage far being KBDI's ability to bring genuine information to bear. I have been away for several years, but I was always a fan and frequent contributor to KBDI--this is so very disappointing... WE NEED PUBLIC BROADCASTING, BUT NOT THIS!

Youtube: The ins and outs of political polling with Magellan Strategies

Program: Devil's Advocate with Jon Caldara (5 comments)
Sir, I would like to see a follow up video to the one posted on Youtube June 6, 2014 titled; the ins and outs of political polling with Magellan Strategies. Magellan Strategies (1685 Boxelder St., Louisville, CO 80027) David Flaherty, CEO. Elkhurst communications (1685 Boxelder St., Louisville, CO 80027). David Flaherty, CEO. One company is the blemish free face (Magellan A BBB rating) to the other which practices less than reputable practices (Elkhurst F- BBB rating). Again, they are the same entity residing in the same office. My opinion is that this is a means of erecting a smoke screen to shield questionable practices. Elkhurst is a robo-caller with a very bad history which a Google search can verify. Magellan’s information is collected from Elkhurst. I am curious to know how political data can be collected when the majority of individuals receiving these calls let it go to voicemail or simply hang up. I am sure that the FCC and BBB can provide more information on the frequency and number of complaints. This is the data used to change voting districts and sworn to in state courts. Additionally, I am unable to find David Flaherty in the University of Delaware 2001 yearbook as a senior which leads me to further question Magellan Strategies. Regards, William Sluyter

I have a strange request. I am interested in finding info regarding your program history. My brother, Craig Poitra, appeared in a cooking show approx 20 years ago. This show was on a PBS station & he did live near Denver, Colorado at the time. This show involved a chili recipe. My brother has since passed away & my 83 year old mother would like me to find his recipe for chili. I am hoping for any information that you may be able to provide. Thank You! Caryl Smith

info most important
Posted: September 14, 2014 by scott Walden
I understand the need for funding broadcasts, the cost of producing film footage,salaries, expenses, etc.. These info programs, are they put out for profit, or for the peoples need to know? It saddens me to think that on issues of our freedoms, and lawful rights, even our health, and the unlawful abuses being covertly served upon us by the upper one percent, will not be heard, possibly until its too late for millions of people, because of no means to pay for information that should be shouted from every mountain top, over and over until Americans "get it". These exclusive "gifts" hold a lot of very important facts as well as expert, credible sources which go a long way when convincing skeptics of the reality of our present, near future, which will be very bad for all except those pulling the strings. Sure Im confused... because I am missing vital info. There is a lot of misleading info out there. As a semi skeptic, its hard to believe that my school class president who became an atty., who ran for public office, state then federal, stepped through a portal, and suddenly wants to lie, deceive,and enslave every thing he's/she's valued all their lives.Sorry, babbling on. If your presenting info, give it all. No one likes being told " here is the answer that will stop these evils ", "you can have it for $$$ Thanks, great programming your all I watch

Program: Take Back Your Power (11 comments)
I just saw this provocative and thought-provoking program --- having worked around radiation from radioactive sources, I am hugely aware of both the benefits and the damage from alpha/beta/neutron radiation; it might be worth reading the book "Electronic Silent Spring" by Katie Singer. Perhaps the most immediate would be concerns for microwave towers on or near any K-12 schools, and with what looks like the implementation of wireless tablets for use by all students/all grades within the next few years (i.e. "going paperless") in the St. Vrain Valley School District. So far, it looks like Boulder County (in particular, Longmont & Boulder) have opted-out of the smart meter program (see http://www.timescall.com/ci_15914555), but I have lots of questions about the safety of our wireless technology --- and even if we decide to decreasel/remove much of our EMR (electromagnetic radiation) footprint, there are no fewer than 5 other wireless networks from our nearest neighbors --- this could become quite a thorny issue, the results of which might have much farther reaching implications, with the potential of leaving its mark, both physically and emotionally, upon everyone. Imagine having to ask people to reduce or even surrender their wireless devices for what could be very real health concerns --- for many, it could be akin to asking someone addicted to meth, crack or heroin to quit cold turkey. I think there could be some very scary times ahead....

Public TV and radio
Posted: September 13, 2014 by Gregory Smith
Hi I am an Australian currently touring America. I would love to be able to support your station but I have a very limited income and at the age of 71 always looking at ways of supporting myself. What I love is the concept of Public TV and Radio and wonder if you would put me in contact with the head of your network with the view of setting up a similar network in Australia. Currently the Australian Government changing the frequencies of commercial television and radio stations freeing up more frequencies for more commercial and free to air stations. I would love to be able to be involved in the introduction of Public TV and Radio in Australia as I believe your in missions and visions. Australia needs a Public TV station as we do have public radio stations, mainly local and ethnic, however there is no independent TV channel. Regards Greg Smith

Program: 9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out (4 comments)
I posted a previous comment on the documentary, and wish to add a summary note: Instead of calling for a independent investigation, simply generate a petition or other lobby device calling to prosecute the crimes of 9/11. If building 7 collapse is a suspect crime, then call for the criminal investigation of Larry Silverstein (sp), then lease holder for the properties in question. In this legal process, the prosecutor would be charged with creating the forensic investigation, hearings, grand jury, etc. If you simply do an independent investigation, there is no reason for this report to gain entrance to a congressional or judicial panel or court of law. It will sit in a drawer. But if you approach this legally, as in criminal prosecution, (events on 9/11 were crimes), then the entire investigative process is transparent.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your emails.
A thorough  criminal investigation of the events of 9/11 seems like a no brainer. I am surprised it was not done.

The reason for the questions
Posted: September 12, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: 9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out (4 comments)
I have seen your documentary coverage of the unanswered questions regarding the crimes of Sept. 11, 2001. I want to thank you, as others have also done, for CPT's courage in airing this type of material. From the days following the events, to present day, the unofficially answered questions have continued to be filed in the "conspiracy" box by the holders of the official UN-investigated events. Here is the problem: the failure of the previous administration to treat these events as a crime first, before calling it terrorism, avoided the legal process usually engaged in for any crimes on US soil- forensic investigations, grand jury, evidence hearings, and so on. The "conspiracy theories", generated from the obvious questions gained from scientific inquiries and knowledge, then provided the perfect cover for the absence of the required legal processes which would have officially produced the answers. The irony of the truth in evidence, in fact, confirmed the information generated from the questions, and confirmed in fact, there was a conspiracy. Again, all of this could have been avoided had the law simply been followed. The size of the crime does not justify skipping the forensic and legal due processes which are designed to reach the truth and prosecute the individuals responsible. Without the transparency gained in legal investigations where prosecutors join with all the experts required to produce the reconstructed event, the public was simply given a narrative and all the science and technology which filled in the gaps, got filed in the conspiracy box. It will take an act of congress and or the executive authority of the president to adjudicate the crimes of 9/11.

I think it is very irresponsible for CPT12 to air programs by charlatans like Gary Null.

As you may know, Colorado Public Television always runs a medical disclaimer around Gary Null and all health related programming encouraging people to check with their health care provider before starting any health or exercise regime; and that the information presented in the program is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent  disease.

GUEST INTERVIEW- AUTHOR SUE GOUDY -Raped at 3 by next door neighbor
Posted: September 7, 2014 by Janneth Whitworth
Good Day to The Programming Department! My name is Janet and I represent Author/Speaker Sue Goudy who would like to possibly guest on any of your program and she lives in Monument Colorado. Two months shy of her third birthday, Susan Goudy was sexually abused by a sixteen-year-old neighbor. Although she unconsciously buried this horrific experience deep within herself, the deep-rooted fear that resulted continued to influence her decisions, happiness, relationships, health, and more for many years. In The Journey from Fear to Love Is Shorter Than You Think, Goudy describes the awakening into life that finally freed her from the mental, physical, and spiritual chains of her past. A memoir written from a spiritual point of view, this book is sprinkled with self-help tips that will give readers the tools they need to get “present and focused” and to take an honest look at what they are or are not doing to create the lives they currently live. Goudy knows from firsthand experience that living in the shadow of your past can cause you to forget that you have the power to take charge of your life. No matter what may or may not lie in your own past, let Susan Goudy help you become more awake, aware, clear, and empowered. It’s time to stop being a victim and to leave excuses behind. It’s time to realize just how powerful and wonderful you are, have been, and will always be! Sue would like to share her story with your audience and was hoping we schedule an interview? When you have a moment we would love to hear back from you. To know more about Sue please visit here http://journeyfromfeartolove.com/category/interviews/ Best Janneth Whitworth janneth.whitworth@yahoo.com

I love these shows and nearly everything on International Mystery among many other great shows on Channel 12. The standards for levels of explicitness vary in other parts of the world. (Note: INTERNATIONAL Mystery). If it's too strong for some viewers, they are more than adequately warned in advance and can avoid it! The rest of us shouldn't have to give up great programming due to the sensitivities of a few viewers. Thanks, CPT, for refusing censorship bids from those who don't care for the gritty realism of some offerings.

Bees and RF EMF cell phone radiation

Program: Vanishing of the Bees (5 comments)
Being electrosensitive, I feel like I won't live to my next birthday. The bees are suffering due to cell phone, cell tower, radiofrequency emitting utility meters, and your home WiFi and DECT wireless toys. I don't own a cell phone. We got our RF meter removed and an analog utility meter installed on our farm. We suddenly have healthy bees back again and I am starting to feel better each day. Get smart. Get WIRED. Send your wireless devices to the recycling dump. Save the bees. From my personal experience & 1000s of hours of medical and scientific reading, I firmly believe ccd STARTs when wireless Radiofrequency radiation stresses the bees immune system, additional chemical sprays potentiate / synergize the environmental toxicity on the bees immune system, then the bees cannot fight off infection & verroa mite infestation, just like homeless street people tend to get parasites because they are worn down like this, too... then the bees get anemic from blood loss of verroa mite infestation and die a suffering terrible death, which I witnessed in our garden again and again as I also became sicker and sicker from the radiofrequency utility meter on my home.

Program: Devil's Advocate with Jon Caldara (5 comments)
I am concerned about the program that aired on August 29th about the Douglas County School District voucher program. 1. Why did John not have any opposing views on the program. He only had two men who obviously had slanted views of the voucher program. The only real example they used is the child who had issues in the usual learning environment. They spoke of their child not having the opportunity to educated correctly because of his learning disability. This simply isn't true. There are programs set up in most school for those students who have learning issues. There is a school that deals with these students on a larger scale. They only used this one students issues. Most of the student's parents who want the voucher program are wanting them for religious schools, which is not allowed in the separation of church and state issues. The other item they brought up was about getting a better education in a private school. This simply isn't true. Are private schools better than public schools? New book says ‘no’. A book that offers a true intellectual study (Christopher Lubienski, a professor in the Department of Educational Organization and Leadership at the College of Education at University of Illinois, and Sarah Theule Lubienski, professor of mathematics education in the College of Education at the University of Illinois. says the opposite of the old thought that private schools produce better students. Here is the Web Page with information on their studies. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/answer-sheet/wp/2013/11/05/are-private-schools-better-than-public-schools-new-book-says-no/ This program is about the effort to privatize public schools. Companies promoting educational test are paid enormous sums of money to produce, advertise and implement these tests. Douglas County School District's current effort to "villainize" The teacher's union (which DCSD"s BOE has deposed of) still tries to blame the union for the woes of the school district. I would love to see an honest program that brings in intelligent people who know the real facts about DCSD's issues with the administration (Liz Fagen and the BOE) and the issues that concern the Teachers, Parents and students of Douglas County School District.

A Town Like Alice
Posted: August 29, 2014 by Name Withheld
I saw a message posted from August 2, 2014 when I was reviewing Comments. It requested you to repeat a series from back in 1981 called "A Town Like Alice." I couldn't agree more with the poster's comments: please repeat it because it was excellent, moody, instructional about WWII, and a great romance story. What more could a viewer want? It was one of the best public television shows ever broadcast here in the USA. It started Bryan Brown's career (short though it was) as a movie star, but that's just a by-the-by. It really was a terrific series.

Program: Colorado Inside Out (14 comments)
I am a dedicated watcher/listener to your program and typically will watch it in repeat even though I have seen it only a couple of days prior simply because I enjoy and appreciate (and am frequently edified by) the intelligent commentary of the panelists. A couple of weeks ago, I had the happy occasion to be watching and listening when Susan Greene and Eli Stokols joined the panel. Susan Greene was particularly impressive as she brought a level of awareness, insight, depth and enlightenment heretofor demonstrated only when the best of your "regular" best panelists were at their very best. Eli Stokols was not far behind, but then I think Susan pretty much left everybody in her dust on that program. That same night, I watched and was extremely impressed by Kyle Clark's appearance on the Caldara program. As good as are David Kopel, Patty Calhoun and Pen Tate (and they are good !!!!), I would urge that you try to bring back Susan as often as possible as well as Eli and Kyle on occasion as well. Perhaps even consider adding another chair around the table so as to give voice for more wisdom and wit.

Democratic Senator Kerr will be taking a tour of ACS Community L.I.F.T. on Wednesday, Aug 20 at noon. Accompanying him will be David Dobson, Republican Candidate for the House of Representatives. Together they will experience what its like to go to a local food pantry, just to make ends meet, as a member of society living on poverty level income We are excited to host both Senator Kerr and Candidate Dobson at our facility and take them on a unique experience. They will be challenged against each other to complete the intake interview, shop in the food bank, get assistance in the free medical clinic, choose a new job path and prepare a snack with the food they chose while shopping. The question is...who will prepare the healthiest snack? ACS Community L.I.F.T. has at its core the mission to serve the Barnum and neighboring communities through a wraparound service model. ACS utilizes a whole person approach to help individuals in need with: their emergent disparities through the food pantry and supportive services, their health disparities in the free medical clinic, and their economic disparities through workforce development opportunities. The staff at ACS Community L.I.F.T. work hard to be innovative in the solutions provided and to find ways to .....Not enable, Not destroy, but to HELP individuals become truly self-sufficient and out of the dependency system.

Colorado Film Company Promotes Awareness for LGBT Equality
Posted: August 15, 2014 by Ande Anderson, MS, RD
Hi CPT12, My name is Ande Anderson, and I am the co-owner of AVAIYA FILMS out of Boulder. We are premiering Reverend Yolanda’s Old Time Gospel Hour The Movie this September, 2014 at 4 Colorado venues. This is the first of 3 AVAIYA films educating and promoting awareness for LGBT equality. You can watch the empowering and fun film trailer here: (www.GoYolanda.com) I'm emailing to ask if you'd like to include filmmaker iKE ALLEN (based out of Boulder) & Rev. Yolanda in your programming in some way. Perhaps after the film premiere, we could air it on PBS? Or perhaps iKE & Yolanda could be guests on Colorado Inside Out? We are open to all possible ideas you might have. The press release for the film is included below and I hope you're inspired to help us in our pursuit of creating a world that works for everyone. Thank you for all you do! Ande Anderson, MS, RD Co-Founder of AVAIYA Are you ready for The Rocky Horror Picture Show of Country Gospel Music? AVAIYA Media Presents ? Reverend Yolanda’s Old Time Gospel Hour - The Movie (Premiering in Colorado - September 2014) An iKE ALLEN Film 70 Minutes Color English www.GoYolanda.com iKE ALLEN’s new film is “A Gender-Bending Gospel Celebration for Humanity!” This joyous musical production combines live footage of Reverend Yolanda’s Old Time Gospel Hour show with interviews and archival footage featuring Reverend Yolanda and friends. Reverend Yolanda is a licensed interfaith minister and multi-award winning performer, holding titles including the #1 song of 2013 by Out Voice, The GLBT CD Ranking Chart, and the 2014 MAC Award Winner. The music in the film is spectacular, especially combined with Yolanda’s catchy sayings like, “The higher the hair the closer to God!” and “Everything works together for our good,” and “We are angels and we're struggling to be human.” As the film unfolds, you will discover that Reverend Yolanda is not so different than you are. She lives in an apartment in Brooklyn, her husband works for the IRS, and she even has bad hair days. This rich and diverse new film will have you laughing, singing and letting go of judgments you may not have known you even had. Through this film, Reverend Yolanda reminds each of us of our human connection, that we are whole and complete just the way we are, and that the world is filled with wondrous awe and mystery. If you are ready for a night of fun, laughter and love, please join us for the Colorado premieres this September. www.GoYolanda.com To schedule an interview with filmmaker iKE ALLEN, Reverend Yolanda, and for all other publicity, please contact: Ande Anderson: 303-746-7648, love@avaiya.com ?###?

He is the sort of comedian that you are embarrassed for him, but you still enjoy his haphazard and unconventional hosting, all the time wondering when he will slip up and say something politically incorrect or just off the wall.

This program seems biased towards promoting GMO food and seems to play on American nationalism to promote GMO food (e.g. "the Europeans aren't interested in something new from America"). These biases are due to the choice of the people interviewed. I would be curious to learn more of GMO studies on animals. Specifically test results from animals fed the GMO foods we are presently sold; results of feeding GMO foods to generations of an animal species. There is literature stating that animals cannot reproduce after the third generation when each generation is fed a GMO diet. Obviously this literature is biased against GMO food, but I am curious as to the credibility of that information. It is not enough to wave away European concerns about GMOs by stating they aren't interested in new things from America, I cannot dismiss the GMO concerns of other countries, just by stating that other countries in the world have a "lengthy" testing process for GMO foods. And I cannot accept that England is wary of GMO foods due to the mad cow scare they underwent. I truly believe there is more to this, and unfortunately this television program did not provide the answers I am looking for when trying to ascertain the safety of ingesting GMO foods for a length of time. Thanks very much for the show, however, as this is an issue close to my and other Coloradans hearts. The more documentaries on the subject will give us more information, which we greatly need.

Thank you for your email.
You certainly make some valid points. Next Meal: Engineering Food  presented a particular point of view on the subject of GMO’s.
Colorado Public Television is also airing Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs.
The producer’s of that film have an entirely different take on the subject.
All the Best,

Thank You Dr.Gary Null and CPT12, The destruction of our environment and ultimately ourselves, our children, grandchildren and all life on our beautiful planet is the most disturbing event to me, this saddens me beyond belief. The dumping of tons of herbicides, and pesticides in our soil is unconscionable. I would love to donate my money but have none at this time. I have just recently stopped drinking tap water and purchase my water, Dr. Nulls water filter is the best I have seen and I intend to purchase one in the future. I again thank you for CPT12 programming everyone needs to see Seeds of Death.

Posted: August 3, 2014 by Jim Buckman
Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (19 comments)
Gary Null doesn't publicize information that can't be backup up and documented from known credible sources. It is important that people at least need to be informed regarding the sources of the food they eat by having the foods they consume labeled "contains GMO ingredients" or "GMO free". Most of the safety research on GMO's has been funded by the very corporations producing them with the stamp of approval coming from the FDA, which is headed by people who...wait for it...used to work for the very corporations producing GMO's. That sounds like a HUGE conflict of interest and I seriously doubt the credibility of anything coming from the FDA as a result. The "jury is out" regarding the independently verified long term safety studies of GMO's. The bottom line is that YOU, the American citizen, are being USED as a LAB RAT concerning your consumption of GMO-containing foods. Do you really want to be a lab rat helping to boost the profits of these huge multi-national corporations? Think about it. What to do you ask? Stay away from as much GMO as you possibly can for the time being. Right now, these giant corporations have paid millions of dollars to prevent labeling initiatives from becoming law. Think about it - if these products were REALLY safe, then why are these huge corporations spending so much money to prevent labeling? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out!!! How to avoid GMO's AND pesticides without GMO labeling: BUY ORGANIC. If the label says "certified organic" then by law, those products cannot contain ANYTHING GMO. By the way, the label jargon "All Natural" is 100% MEANINGLESS. Ignore it. Buy organic whenever possible.

Press Release: FootGolf Phenomenon Arrives in the Denver Metro Area
Posted: August 2, 2014 by Jill Collins
Good morning CBDI TV 12 News Team, We wanted to reach out to you today to send you the press release pasted below about the exciting debut of the sport of FootGolf in the Denver metro area, as we think it will appeal to your viwers as a great way to enjoy life, be active, and enjoy the outdoors in the Denver area. The Colorado FootGolf Association (CFGA) is happy to provide more information, photos, and arrange interviews, if desired. In addition, we would like to extend a media pass to one staff member and one guest to attend, participate in, and cover the Colorado FootGolf Kickoff Tournament. There will be a number of great photo and interview opportunities as well as a media kit available to better provide you and your viewership with an insider’s experience of FootGolf. Please contact CFGA Founder, Matt Collins, by Sunday, August 10th, to reserve your media pass and guest pass. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Matt Collins Founder, Colorado FootGolf Association 720-588-0226 ColoradoFGA@gmail.com www.coloradofootgolf.com FootGolf Phenomenon Arrives in the Denver Metro Area Denver, CO – July 29, 2014 The newly established Colorado FootGolf Association (CFGA) will introduce one of the hottest new sports played on a golf course to the Denver area on Sunday, August 17th - FootGolf. The sport, played by kids, teens, and adults of all ages, is a unique hybrid of soccer and golf, endorsed by the PGA of America and supported by the Federation of FootGolf (FIFG). The sport of FootGolf has been recognized and has seen continuous growth in countries all over the world and the FIFG currently holds nearly 20 member country leagues including the American FootGolf League. FootGolf follows many of the same rules as traditional golf. FootGolf is playing as either 9 holes or 18 holes, depending on the course, and each hole is regulation size, at 21-inches in diameter. One 18-hole round of FootGolf typically lasts an average of three hours and the only equipment needed is a Size 5 soccer ball and proper golf attire. In the debut tournament on August 17th at the Family Sports Center in Centennial, groups of up to four people will tee off starting at 5:30 p.m. from designated tee areas. Players must kick the ball down the “fairway” toward the flag and eventually kick the ball into the hole. All the obstacles of a traditional golf course are in play and must be handled accordingly. Each hole has a par of either three, four, or five. Paul Browne, Co-Founder of the Colorado FootGolf Association, sees the sport as a win-win for everyone. “The introduction of FootGolf to the Denver metro area promises to not only add a fun and exciting sport to the golf course experience and give participants a great way to be active and enjoy the beautiful Colorado outdoors, but will also increase the number of customers for our partner golf courses,” says Browne. The August 17th Kickoff Tournament is open to 40 players of all ages, with no experience necessary. The entry fee is $30/person and will feature prizes for lowest total score, longest kick, and closest to the pin. Interested participants can register for the tournament by visiting www.coloradofootgolf.com. The Colorado FootGolf Association aims to have two additional partner metro Denver Golf Courses up and running within the next twelve months, before expanding into Boulder, Fort Collins, and Colorado Springs. Denver metro residents can look forward to more tournaments plus the addition of leagues and open play moving into the fall season. For more information regarding FootGolf, contact Matt Collins at 720-588-0226 or ColoradoFGA@gmail.com. ###
recent airing of "Seeds of Death"
Posted: July 29, 2014 by Peter Olins
Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (19 comments)
I was shocked and horrified that CPT12 would choose to air such a radical movie as "Seeds of Death", which masquerades as a documentary about GMO foods. The amount of misinformation and propaganda in this movie was breathtaking. I seldom use the word "evil", but in this case, the blatant distortions in this movie will surely do harm, and CPT12 is clearly complicit. I have seen better-sourced material on the cover of the National Enquirer: what's next, a documentary about how all of Congress has been abducted by aliens and replaced by humanoid replicas? Public television should aspire to educating, as well as entertaining, the public: in the past I have been impressed by the efforts of public TV and radio across the country to act as an antidote to the low quality of the commercial media. Is there no-one in authority at your station who has even a rudimentary science education, or a rudimentary level of skepticism? If you cannot do even the most basic quality control of the kinds of information you present, then I question whether your station deserves to exist. A brief phone call to any of our excellent local Universities would have prevented this embarrassment. You owe all your viewers and donors a public apology. Peter Olins, PhD

STAND FOR ISRAEL?
Posted: July 27, 2014 by Name Withheld
I am appalled that it was an announcement to stand for Israel. I cannot believe that anyone would stand for Israel for what they are doing to poor innocent children and the poor. It's a shame on the world and those who think this behavior is ok of Israel. They are wrong. Not only that how the story is being told by the United States Reporters is absolutely a disgrace. Israel need to be looked into. That state is not what people think they are.. It's such a shame for them the Jews to forget how much pain they were in not that long ago. 1939 until 1944 One fact remain ISRAEL did not lift one FINGER to help them when they were in pure HELL. now the united states want to side with Israel and we Coloradoans not all, says it's ok to hurt a defenseless people. who only want food, water, paid a decent salary, not accept scraps from Israel as they live on the Gaze strip in PRISON. I guess what Israel will do is ethnic cleanse the Palestinians as they have with all the Black Jews in their country. Orders from the Israel president himself. Is it enough hate? WHY support such actions?

Alfredo Zalce

Hi. Sometime between 6 and 8 am this morning I saw a story on Alfredo Zalce. I thought it was one of the Irish sounding morning shows that did it, but I can't find anything like that on the schedule. Nor can I find anything about Zalce when I do a search. Any chance you can point me to the right show to find out more? They showed a lot of his works and it was wonderful. But a google search on his name hasn't provided me with many images at all. Maybe if I could get back to that segment I could get somewhere. Thanks
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  According to the schedule, we did not have anything on in reference to Alfredo Zalce at the times specified.  Could it have been channel 6?  I notice on their schedule that they had a program on call Cyberchase – A change of Art.  You can contact them at www.rmpbs.org.
 
I hope this helps.

Tragedy and Courage on the Bering Sea By John Sabella
Posted: July 24, 2014 by Name Withheld
Last week I watched an incredible documentary, Tragedy and Courage on the Bering Sea, by John Sabella. It was one of the most riveting documentaries I have ever watched. The story seamlessly moves from the original fire to one tragic event after another; while the Captain maintains his focus, as well as control over the men aboard his failing,fishing vessel. The documentary is a true nail biter, and kept me on the edge of my seat. It is definitely a,"do not miss" film.

Last night's report on the children in Gaza
Posted: July 24, 2014 by Jo Anne Torkildson
My husband and I are aware of the bias in your news reporting, and therefore are pretty cautious when we occasionally watch a news broadcast on your channel. We sat with our mouths open, appalled, at the more than 10 minute report you aired last evening which was a SKYPE interview with a woman I believe was from UNICEF. It was about the plight of the Palestinian children in the Gaza strip being shelled by Israel. While there is no doubt that innocent children being killed is a tragedy, there was no mention that this tragedy was caused solely by the Hamas terrorist group. Palestine Hamas terrorists are the aggressors and Israel is defending itself. Hamas puts its civilians deliberately in harm's way in order to protect their weaponry, and they depend on biased news outlets such as yourself to broadcast these heart-rending images across the world in order to garner sympathy and support. Israel is defending itself, and takes extra-ordinary measures to warn civilians in Gaza of when and where they will be bombing. If Hamas laid down their weapons tomorrow, there would be peace. If Israel laid down their weapons tomorrow, they would be wiped off the face of the map. How can you not report the truth about their side of the story? You are being used as stooges and I am totally disgusted that a channel that promotes itself as balanced in reporting can behave in such a manner. We will not turn on your channel again, and we will encourage our friends to boycott you as well. Shame, shame, shame on you, to treat our strongest ally in the world in such a manner.

While scrolling through the television channels the other day , I momentarily stopped on ch. 12 to hear what I perceived the Hamas reporting of the Hamas incited attack on Israel , from an Arab viewpoint , assessing the ISRAELIS , as aggressors, as the Arab journalist reported the Hamas TERRORISTS , as FREEDOM FIGHTERS ... This is ridiculous and WRONG . Israel is a 5 million people country , entitled to their right to be sovereign AND not to face rocket launches from Gaza . Hamas is NOT freedom fighting ,FREESOM FIGHTING !! Please ... building concrete tunnels, abducting Israeli civilians, and torturing them , and a footnote , lying to Israel while Israel supplied the concrete to build these BUNKERS !! ISRAEL ALSO GIVES CARE , financial and otherwise to theses Palestinians , suing for PEACE, constantly . What do they get in return ? TERROR ... I AM OFFENDED BY YOUR PROGRAMMING , AND please DO NOT TELL ME IT IS BALANCED JOURNALISM AND THEY HAVE A " RIGHT " TO THEIR OPINION ... and tell me , would you be broadcasting this behind their lines , free and liberated , that is , the Israeli viewpoint ? I hardly think so ... Offended in Loveland
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for your note. We are looking into the rapidly changing programming situation with our global coverage.
We do not currently have Al Jazeera news in our lineup.  Many months ago we had aired some programming from them as part of our CPT 12.3 Mhz Worldview service, but it is my understanding that that is not longer part of their schedule either.
 
Not to be dismissive of the content concerns, but first I would like to trace down what you saw when and where.   Do you know approximately what time you were watching?  Is it possible it was an excerpt from Al Jazeera included in somebody else’s programming? Or did one of our programming providers do some last minute breaking news switch without letting us know?
 
Any additional information would be appreciated.
 
Thank you.

Program: Moyers & Company (1 comment)
Thank you for rebroadcasting Democracy Now! at 11:00 pm. on ch. 12.1. But you no longer seem to rebroadcast Bill Moyers. Please consider SEVERAL rebroadcasts. Play Bill Moyers again on Fridays, say at midnight, 1 or 2:00 am that night (technically, 1 or 2:00 a.m. Saturdays). Or you could replay Moyers earlier on Fridays; say at 11:00 p.m. But equally important is to replay Moyers at least twice during the week that follows the 9:00 p.m. Friday broadcast. Please replay Moyers any weekday evening or night, at least twice. I suggest a monthly email to your email subscribers. This email would concern public affairs programming only. You could list shows such as Democracy Now! and Bill Moyers, and next to each title, you could list the days and times you play and replay the show. Example: Democracy Now! - weekdays, Mon.-Fri. 5:30, 11:00 pm, and 1:00 am Bill Moyers - Fridays, 9:00 p.m. and midnight (or 1:00 or 2:00 am); Sundays, 1:00 am; Mondays, midnight; Tuesdays, 10:00 pm.

Hello, I am the Director of Public Relations for Colorado Fashion Week (CFW) and we have an event coming up that would make for a great segment on your station. On July 31, CFW will host a merchant sale and runway event that will serve as a fundraiser for our larger week-long events in the fall. The city of Denver has gotten behind our mission by officially proclaiming October 1st - 7th of each year, Colorado Fashion Week. Our fundraiser is the most important fashion event of the summer and we look forward to your attendance and support. In teaming with the city, we hope to create an economically sustainable fashion industry in Denver. This objective appeals to artists, designers, models, retailers, and many more of Colorado's talented citizens to build their careers in our great state. If attention is not paid to the fashion industry, we will continue to lose creatives to more recognized cities like Miami, Los Angeles, and New York City. Please email us to receive a press release and informational documents. Feel free to request additional information. Our team is available for interviews. I can also personally come to the station to speak about our projects. We thank you for coming together with us to make Colorado an even more versatile state.

Dear Mr/Mrs, I am writing you in the name of Suzan Russeler, curator of the TextielMuseum in Tilburg (NL). The TextielMuseum is organizing the exhibition BUILDING WITH TEXTILES (September, 27th, 2014 –January, 25th 2015). The focus of the exhibition is the innovative use of textiles and flexible materials in architecture and interior. The exhibition is divided into 5 sections: 1) a short historical overview on tents and lightweight architecture (traditional tents, R.B. Fuller, Frei Otto, Haus Rucker&Co) 2) innovative architectural projects (f.e. OMA/ Prada Transformer; soma architecture/ One Ocean Pavilion; dosu studio architecture/ Bloom; Kennedy & Violich Architecture/ Soft House) 3) interior textile projects, subthemes divided by function (the regulation of light, temperature and sound, the construction of 3D structures, f.e. studio Inside / Outside (NL), Astrid Krogh (DK) 4) display of innovative and smart textile samples 5) educational section for visitors experimenting with textile constructions As introduction to the theme we would like to present an overview about historical tents and lightweight architectureby photographs and films. We would like to present a film of buckminster fuller which we found online: Frei Otto: Spanning the Future https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWo-ifNoQ98 We noticed that you are the copyright holder of this film.

Acclaimed as some of the best young musicians in the world, the top 1.5 percent of School of Rock’s 17,000 students are selected as prestigious Allstars to embark on a nationwide summer tour. Broomfield School of Rock Students, Keeana and Eric, will be uniting with the AllStars for multiple performances on July 29 at Shubas, July 30 at JBTV Studios: Chicago, July 31 & August 1 Beat Kitchen, and 8/2 Lollapalooza.   Every summer, the AllStars embark on a tour complete with tour buses and multiple live shows throughout the country.

As part of the AllStars tour, students will be collecting saliva samples from festival-goers, which are added to international bone marrow databases in the hopes of making a match and saving a life. So far, these efforts have resulted in eight matches from the festivals. With more than 140 schools in eight countries, School of Rock has quickly grown to become the leader in performance-based music education, transforming the lives of musicians worldwide. At School of Rock, music programs are designed to create a supportive environment, emphasizing that it's not just about playing an instrument; it’s about playing on a team as well. The performance-based approach gives students the opportunity to practice and perform in a group setting, which encourages team building fundamentals and develops confidence. After three months of one-on-one lessons combined with structured group rehearsals and jam sessions, the students transform into rock stars in a blowout concert in front of a real live audience.   For more information on Broomfield School of Rock, please visit https://broomfield.schoolofrock.com .   ABOUT SCHOOL OF ROCK?

Out Of Order Claymation Clip
Posted: July 15, 2014 by Name Withheld
At about 9:30-10ish this evening (July 15th), I began watching Out Of Order midway through the episode. The segment playing was a abstract claymation video that appeared to be from the early 1960s. The music accompanimieing the footage was a fast paced, upbeat instrumental track. I know that I have seen the film before, but couldnt remember what it was called or who it was by. I would like to know what it was. It was followed by a segment about zombies. If you could please get back to me about what claymation video was used, I would greatly appreciate it.

weather alert interruption
Posted: July 15, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Masterpiece (11 comments)
WHY can you not just scroll weather alerts silently and keep programming audio unmolested?! The past two Monday evenings Masterpiece Mystery was savaged by your public service weather audio interruptions.
CPT12 Response:
 Yes, it can be frustrating to have your favorite program interrupted however, imagine if you are visually impaired and there is a tornado heading your way! 
We are required by the FCC to provide emergency information.  Here is an excerpt with a link to the FCC following the excerpt:
How Does Emergency Information Need to Be Made Accessible?
In the case of persons who are deaf or hard of hearing, emergency information that is provided in the audio portion of programming must be provided either using closed captioning or other methods of visual presentation, such as open captioning, crawls or scrolls that appear on the screen. Video programming distributors must ensure that emergency information does not block any closed captioning, and closed captioning should not block any emergency information provided by means other than closed captioning. Closed captions are visual text displays that are hidden in the video signal. You can access closed captions through your remote control or on-screen menu or through a special decoder. Open captions are an integral part of the television picture, like subtitles in a movie. In other words, open captions cannot be turned off. Text that advances very slowly across the bottom of the screen is referred to as a crawl; displayed text or graphics that move up and down the screen are said to scroll.
In the case of persons who are blind or visually impaired, emergency information that is provided in the video portion of a regularly scheduled newscast or a newscast that interrupts regular programming must be made accessible. This requires the aural description of emergency information in the main audio. If the emergency information is being provided visually during programming that is not a regularly scheduled newscast or a newscast that interrupts regular programming (e.g., the programmer provides the emergency information through “crawling” or “scrolling” during regular programming), this information must be accompanied by an aural tone. Beginning May 26, 2015, this information must be made accessible to individuals who are blind or visually impaired through the use of a secondary audio stream to provide the emergency information aurally. The aural tone will continue to alert persons with vision disabilities that the broadcaster is providing emergency information, and, as of May 26, 2015, will alert them to tune to the secondary audio stream, such as a radio, for more information.

Program: Great Museums: Elevated Thinking – The High Line In New York City (2 comments)
My wife was able to view this program, and loved it thoroughly. She said to me, "You have to see this yourself, especially the beautiful garden along The High Line. Exquisite results from all the work and effort put into it." Alas, I wrote down days, dates, times and channels, 12.1 and 12.2, leaving myself a memo so I could view the program in June or July. I missed every opportunity and know I have missed something essential. Please bring back the program, Great Museums: Elevated Thinking - The High Line in New York City" for viewing. August, September, October, whenever you can fit it in your schedule is fine. Thank you in advance for honoring this request. Sincerely, Trini Lopez, Parker, Colorado

MS appliance for hip
Posted: July 14, 2014 by David Ramsey
My wife has MS and saw something on channel 12 about an appliance that helped MS people walk - she says it fastened at the waist and down the leg. Unfortunately, that is all she remembers, and she did not get the phone number which was on the screen. Does any of this ring a bell with you? She would really like to learn more, and if she could recall the name for the appliance or the company that was demonstrating it, she could provide that information to her doctor. Thank you for any help you can provide.
CPT12 Response:
The program we broadcasted recently was HEALED: Music, Medicine and Life with MS.  I am unsure if it contains the information you are looking for.  Here is all of the program information that I have at my disposal.  I might suggest that you visit the website or call them directly to see if you can locate the information that way.

Program: Colorado Inside Out (14 comments)
Last week on Colorado Inside Out a member on the panel, David Kopel, presented a deceptive understanding about what has happened in Gaza and the Palestinian land. I don't even believe the beginning of the violence was explained. It began when 3 teenage Jewish boys were reported missing, with no ideas of what happened, the Israel gov. began a number of ways to implement collective punishment on Palestinians for their disappearance, including arresting 100's of the persecuted group of people or Palestinians as suspects. Then a Palestinian was burned to death and another beat when these young men where not doing anything wrong. When you look at a map of what began as Palestine and what it is today, it appears that the current government of Israel is clearing the land of Palestinians and their right to own anything in Israel; it is not so different than what happened in South Africa when they had an apartheid system. The US was calling many of the Africans of that country terrorists,including Nelson Mandela. I don't know if they were providing multimillions of dollars of weapons of mass destruction weapons to the Apartheid European-African controlled government at that time as the US is currently is doing for Israel today. I hope somehow the Colorado Inside Out program can correct the deception they have presented and encourage viewers to go to another excellent news program shown right there on KBDI channel 12, which is Democracy Now, http://www.democracynow.org/2014/7/14/israel_targets_civilians_the_casualties_speak On another subject it would be appreciated if the people on the programs on KBDI covered the other political parties besides just the Republican and Democrat parties. The Green party was extremely appreciative when you allowed their candidate, the Libertarian and the Constitutional candidates a chance to be aired as they answered some questions on important issues. It would also be informative to the public if they could be on the air with the Republican and Democrat candidates or to tell the public why these two many times agreeing candidates refuse to appear with them. This year the Green Party has several candidates including a candidate for governor, Harry Hempy. I thought it would be nice if the Colorado Inside Out panel could have interviewed ALL of the candidates who are running for governor to see what their views are on capital punishment, on Obama's visit, as well as how they feel about supporting Senator Udall. I as a Green Party member thought Senator. Udall deceived the public by speaking against the NDAA bill for an hour on the senate floor and then promptly signing the bill. Thank you for providing this space for my comment.

Program: Running of the Bulls (1 comment)
Please don't contribute to or glamorize Spain's cruel pathetic practice of running these beautiful animals to what is certainly a slow and cruel death! Public television should have more class!! So those of us who know the horror of bullfighting that children watch and cheer that the bullfighter will be victorious hope for the opposite result we continue working to end a practice that is bloody and violent and frankly I question the moral compass of all of you who think bullfighting should continue.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your feedback.
I respect your concern about the cruelty of bullfighting. But after viewing this extraordinary documentary, I got to say, the Bulls came out looking pretty good.  I was more concerned about the sanity of the runners.
This Saturday July 12th is the 4th Annual Highlands Running of the Bulls. This is a run I think we all can get behind.
A benefit for Tennyson Center for Children in Northwest Denver, runners attempt to outrun members of the Rocky Mountain RollerGirls team wielding whiffle ball bats.
It will be a day of celebration for those who are able to escape the onslaught of the Rocky Mountain RollerGirls, and will raise money for Tennyson Center for Children, who's aim is to "work with children, youth, and their families to overcome a variety of life crises, including abuse and neglect."

He was speaking from the Carnegie Council. I checked the CarnegieCouncil.org website, and couldn't find this information.

What moral codes guide them - and how do those codes evolve? Global Ethics Forum is a weekly television show produced by the CarnegieEthics Studio, a division of the Carnegie Council for Ethics inInternational Affairs. Each week, different experts navigate the murky moral landscapes presented by global politics, development, and international business. New episodes often confront challenges relevant to current events,while episodes in the Carnegie Classics series address longer-term ethical topics. This is very important to me.

Program: International Mystery (6 comments)
Hi, On Tuesday evenings what has been running from RAI is quite dismal. Bless their hearts, on Mondays we can endure Don Matteo, but the idiocy on Tuesday is too much. We can understand some relief from the heaviness of the Scandinavian dramas, but this stuff on Tuesdays is just too simple-minded and and an insult to your audience. We now automatically switch it off, preferably for other programs on the "Beady-Eye" (KBDI) of course. Can you pass this on to Mhz or give us a contact? I'm sure they would like to know. While I'm on a rant, can Tavis Smiley be informed that his plugs for Walmart are disgusting as well? Just to get rid of them we switch over to NewScan Cooking and many times forget to return. He loses audience and it tarnishes his image as well to have Walmart run all over his program the way they do. Thanks, John and Dianne

What happened to Masterpiece Mystery???
Posted: June 30, 2014 by Name Withheld
According to all of today's TV schedule listings I've seen in print and online, including your very own website, Masterpiece Mystery was supposed to air at 7PM tonight (Monday June 30). Tonight's Masterpiece Mystery airing was advertised in pro-mo's on Channel 12 for days leading up to tonight. But there is NO Masterpiece Mystery. I would think there would be some kind of announcement about Masterpiece Mystery not airing on your web site or some message scrolling across the TV screen, but I am seeing nothing.

Masterpiece Mystery "The Escape Artist"
Posted: June 30, 2014 by Carole Albright
Program: Masterpiece (11 comments)
I was all set to watch the 2nd episode in this two part program at 7 pm this evening. Imagine my dismay to see it wss not on, Independent Lens was on. Are you going to be showing it another time? I was unable to watch the 2nd episode when it first aired and was really looking forward to this. I did not see any announcement of the change and it is still showing up on the schedule as being at 7. Please let me know when it will be on again. Thank you.

Where is Masterpiece Theater
Posted: June 30, 2014 by Name Withheld
Where is Masterpiece Theater that is what is scheduled and what I was expecting to see,instead I'm getting Where's Berkley. Where's Berkley may be very good and interesting but not what I was tuning in to see. Don't ask me to support you if you are not going to follow you own programing!
The Escape Artist

Where is The Escape Artist tonight? It's on your schedule and in the TV guide section. When will it air? Not interested in Berkeley.

Independent Lens instead of Masterpiece Mystery?
Posted: June 30, 2014 by Name Withheld
I hope CPT12 eventually plays the conclusion to Masterpiece Mystery "The Escape Artist" (i.e. Part 2). I was disappointed to turn on the t.v. to watch it and see Independent Lens pre-empt Masterpiece Mystery. Please update your schedule if you do decide to make changes. Thank you, Zach

Program change
Posted: June 30, 2014 by Name Withheld
Why are you showing Independent Lens at 7 pm this evening instead of the second half of Masterpiece Mystery you started last week? That's failing to keep your implied promise, to say nothing of not showing what you actually say you're showing. When will the second half now be shown?

This was a very interesting and down to earth documentary about living in the wilderness. These people really had courage to do this. A very interesting and enjoyable program. I hope it airs again for more people to see and learn the hardships of living off the land.

I am wondering before I buy tickets now. Will KBDI be having a pledge drive in August (or after) to promote their concert in February? Or should I go ahead and purchase the tickets as listed on the site? Thanks for your time
Special about people living in wilderness
Posted: June 27, 2014 by Name Withheld
We caught a portion of the show would love to know the name. It was about two worn and a man and a young boy in the wilderness. If you could give me the name that would be awesome thank you
CPT12 Response:
We are glad you enjoyed the program.  The title of the program is  Arctic Son.  Here is a bit of info about the program:
 
In the spring of 1992 author Jeanie Aspen, daughter of Alaskan adventurers Constance and Bud Helmericks, set out with her husband, Tom, their 6-year-old son, Luke, and friend Laurie for fourteen months ... [See more]alone in Alaska's remote Brooks Range. Flown into the wilderness, the four strive to gain a foothold before winter reclaims the land, a hundred miles from the nearest people. The following summer they face a perilous 600-mile downriver canoe journey back to the world they left behind.As professional artists, Tom and Jeanie readily incorporate the camera into family life, candidly recording their struggles and triumphs against the awesome beauty of the America's last great wilderness. Each member of the small family shares honestly the challenges of this new life. Luke's entries are charming and poignant as we watch him mature under the tutelage of arctic wilderness. Extraordinary historic footage of Jeanie herself as a child in the Brooks Range adds depth to this story of pioneer spirit and evolving relationships.
 
Thanks for watching and supporting programming you value.
 
Sincerely,

Five part Civil War series - Civil War: The Untold Story
Posted: June 19, 2014 by Erik Hauge
Program: Civil War: The Untold Story (1 comment)
Hello: I've learned that there is a new PBS documentary about the Civil War. It is mainly about the "western campaign", and features episodes about the battles of Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chickamauga/Chattanooga, and Atlanta. It's already being shown on some PBS stations around the country. Are you aware of the series? If so, do you plan to show it? When? If not, why not? Thanks.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
Colorado Public Television aired the full series  The Civil War: The Untold Story, earlier this year.  Our broadcast rights for the program have expired, so we can no longer air the series this time around.
I was unable to find a free site that you could stream the programs, but they are available through Amazon. You may also be able to check them out through your local library.
All the Best,
Joan

Film Premiere
Posted: June 19, 2014 by Adam Hartle
Hello, My name is Adam Hartle and I'm a comedian/filmmaker and I wanted to let you know about our film "Mile High- The Comeback of Cannabis" which is premiering at The Mayan theater on July 8th, 2014. (trailer and press kit can be viewed here: www.MileHighFilm.com). It's a comedy documentary on Amendment 64 beginning with the historic vote and ending with the landmark opening of the nations' 1st recreational shops in Colorado as we were the only film crew to capture these historic moments live. We chose Denver for the premiere over NY or LA because it was filmed in Colorado and we feel like the 1,291,771 Coloradans who voted "yes" on 64 deserve the opportunity to see it first. Plus I can't wait to get back out there! It's also playing July 9th and 10th at the Mayan and July 9th at The Boulder theater. After Colorado, we're taking the film to indie theaters nationwide. Any exposure would be greatly appreciated. Director Anthony Hashem and myself are available for interviews July 6-8. Thank you! Adam Hartle (904) 514-3134
