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
Posted: July 26, 2014 by Name Withheld
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
"The Eagle" International Mystery

Program: RT News (4 comments)
All the news broadcasts have a spin to it. Just watching the major US networks the last 2 weeks is a testimony to that. Providing other views, even if influenced and or controlled by others, gives me a better view of what is going on in the world. The US mass media is not as free as one would imagine and sadly so. Just consider the Gaza conflict. Please keep being as independent as possible. Thank you!!! V.Spina
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.
ALJIZIRA NEWS
Posted: July 23, 2014 by Name Withheld
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

Comcast bad ethics
Posted: July 20, 2014 by George Lucas
Hi, I wanted to talk to John Resudo from the Independent about Comcast as he was talking about them today Sunday July 20, 2014 on his show about charges etc. I have written them twice and they haven't replied yet and as the guy said on the news the other day they would cancel his account at his request and they are doing the same to me and no response to my request to cancel my basic cable that I was kind of forced into subscribing to when I switched to roof antenna over 2 years ago because of their treatment to me since the first letter to them on June 14th. 2014 with my request to cancel and they didn't and my bill went higher yet, what gives, can you help me and others, thanks.

Program: Moyers & Company (2 comments)
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. POV - rebroadcast whenever Independent Lens - same Thanks for considering rebroadcasts of your better shows.

 Thank you for your email. We are glad you enjoy the programming.
Democracy Now!episodes are aired three times on Colorado Public Television. For information on the times and channels, please click on the link below:

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.

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 (6 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 (5 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.

I wish you'd bring back Maigret to International Mystery. Any chance of that? I also wish you'd take off CCTV news since it's Chinese news and I would not trust or support their censored news - especially if it's about Tibet or the NY Times (which China hacked).

I taped the 2nd episode for the Escape Artist, knowing I was having out of town guest and would not be able to watch. On July 6th after all my company left I sat down to a some program about Berkeley University under the title Masterpiece Mystery. I frantically started looking for another showing. Next I went to your website, only to find you did a replay on July 5th. Will you be doing another repeat? I am so disappointed in missing the ending to this very exciting thriller.

Like several other viewers I waited for episode 2 to air and was most disappointed when some other program was on instead. I am hoping that you will air episode 2 again as I was unable to view it over the holiday weekend. I'm sure many other viewers missed the episode due to holiday plans. It seems to me that it would be worthwhile to show the entire program again. Thank you.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  There was a mix up on Monday the 30th of June, so they decided to air it on Saturday the 5th of July.  It was on at 2:30 p.m..  Unfortunately you missed it.  We informed the public through e-mails (those who inquired) and other sources that we would be airing it on the 5th.

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."
All the Best,

Hello valued CPT12 Programming Staff members, Could you please let me know where I can find a link to the full video of the presentation, and the speaker's name from today's (Sunday, July 6, 2014, 8:00 AM), channel 12.3 program called Global Ethics?. He was speaking from the Carnegie Council. I checked the CarnegieCouncil.org website, and couldn't find this information. When I also checked on the CPT12 program schedule, it only said: http://www.cpt12.org/tv_schedule/program_details.cfm?id=320140706080000 Global Ethics Forum Sunday, July 6 at 8:00 am on Channel 12.3 How do global leaders make decisions? 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. Thank you so very much for your help. Fran Rew (303) 321-1064 (H) (720) 474-5182 (C) f.rew@comcast.net

Tuesday nights,--internationl mysteries

Program: International Mystery (1 comment)
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

Hi, The Denver Post and the CPT 12.1 schedule for June 30th lists the "Escape Artist," Part 2, as showing at 7:00 PM, however, POV was on at that time instead (I have my TV tuned just to Channel 12 - Do you have to somehow put Channel 12.1 in order to get the programming listed on that schedule?) of the "Escape Artist." In the event that there was just a mix up, will you rebroadcast the show? Thank you, Becky Friis

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. I can't imagine I'm the only person in metro Denver wondering what the hell is going on with Channel 12 tonight???

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.

Hello: I've learned that there is a new PBS documentary about the Civil War.

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.

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
Wireless Radiation and Health Concerns
Posted: June 16, 2014 by Virginia Farver
Dear Producers, or Shari Bernson; I'm contacting you concerning a showing of 'Take Back Your Power ' www.takebackyourpower.net. I spoke with Shari a few months ago and she was in contact with Josh Del Sol the producer of the movie. The movie needed to be shortened and I believe that this has been accomplished. This is a subject that needs to be shown to the public. Especially now that the city of Denver is going to have Comcast deploy 'Hot Spots' throughout the city. There is now sufficient evidence that non-ionizing radiation Classification by the WHO ( World Health Organization ) should be changed from a Class 2B Carcinogen to a Class 2A Carcinogen. Non-ionizing radiation ( Wireless ) which includes cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, smart meters, power-lines, etc., are currently a class 2B. 2B carcinogens include DDT, LEAD, CHLOROFORM and ASBESTOS! Car manufacturers are also in the process of developing cars with Wi-Fi systems that surround your car to prevent collisions. Electric Car batteries are dangerous and create RF fields that are dangerous to be located near. Many people are suffering from EHS - Electro Hypersensitivity Symptoms. Headaches, nausea, ringing in the ears, memory or concentration problems to name a few. Many of these people are being put on depression medication instead of disconnecting. Author Katie Singer just released a book with my Son's Story: The Electronic Silent Spring - www.theelectronicsilentspring.com. This book covers laws, the dangers of smart meters and there effects, Dirty Electricity among other issues. I would like to know if Channel 12 is going to air - Take Back Your Power? I have investigated 3 different Cancer Clusters. The one on the SDSU campus in San Diego involves several people who have died from GBM Brain Cancer, one of these included my Son. There is a HPWREN ( High Performance Wireless Research & Educational Network ) cell tower on campus located near a building where most of these victims were located. The other 2 cancer clusters involved people on the UCSD San Diego campus that succumbed to Breast Cancers. This involved a room in the Literature Building on campus which was located next to an elevator and electrical equipment. 15 people, 8 women with breast cancers within a few years. Again high EMF's were found. The head of this investigation was Dr. Leeka Kheifets who works and does research through the ' Electrical Power Research Institute.' All 3 schools had epidemiological reports which are mere statistics. What all 3 schools needed were true TOXICOLOGY Studies done. The Kelly Elementary Cancer Cluster in Carlsbad involved several kids with leukemia's and brain tumors. In this investigation another epidemiological report with the same Dr.'s who wrote the report for SDSU. There are huge high tension electrical power-lines that cross this school property and surrounding neighborhoods along with a power station near-by. Upon further investigations there were 59 cell towers and 219 antennas located within a 4 mile radius of this school. WAKE UP AMERICA! Wireless is DANGEROUS and we are all at saturation points! There will be no escape from deadly cumulative toxin!! GET RID OF CELL PHONES, CELL TOWERS, WI-FI and DON'T LIVE NEAR POWER STATIONS OR POWER-LINES! Sincerely, Virginia Farver vrfarv@hotmail.com

GAA coverage.
Posted: June 16, 2014 by Jim Robinson
Dear CPT: Will you be airing any coverage this summer of the GAA (Gaelic football and hurling) this summer? In the past, I have watched this on your international channel via Directv, usually a Saturday game that was replayed on Sunday, about a two-three week delay of the live game. Thanks, Jim
CPT12 Response:
Our international programming seen on Channel 12.3 (Comcast 252) comes direct from MHz Networks and right now it doesn’t appear that GAA football or hurling is in their line-up.  For the latest international programming be sure to check our website from time-to-time.  Here is the link:  http://www.cpt12.org/tv_schedule/programs_a-z.cfm#%26channel_selector%3D3%26letter%3D

Thx for airing a component of democracy with the help of Eric Sondermann and Shaun Boyd, who without their professionalism would have been jaw dropping as I was in response to (R) candidates vying to rep the 4th dist (the delta quadrant).. A litmus party, each seemed to be looking over their shoulder least a conservative air horn would sound if answer was out of lockstep, which is the tea party blockade of the U S House of Representatives, dance profile of gridlocked govt., however out of step with Colo voters. To wit, legal weed “bad idea” no banking relief for dopers.2nd, Citizens United (open flood gate of money, merely a “free speech”, 1st amend issue, (can you dog whistle that tune?) As a political junkie, & avowed liberal I admit I didn’t have a dog in that fight. However, It was enlightening to see the lack of compromise, the mothers milk of political governing, confirming some recent polling that conservatives prefer to locate in rural sprawl( Weld Co. sessionistas) , whilst liberals prefer denser housing ( RTD?) More opine lately the country is approaching historic divides. Ken Buck (whom I voted against in his Senate race) seemed to grasp the fallacy of “out there” positions in trying to woo centrist voters and bettered his opponents with that resolve. Too bad some of that up coming TV ad money can’t flow to CPT 12, which is doing the real work of showcasing candidates(credit the idea to Patricia Calhoun,Westword, on Colorado inside out) thx , DaninDen

 We are glad to hear you like Priscilla’s Yoga Stretches.  We especially love Priscilla as she offers her program to PBS affiliates FREE!  We take all the episodes that are fed from satellite and have 130 episodes in-house.  I see from her website that there may be other programs but if there are they aren’t being fed from satellite perhaps to keep DVD sales coming in?

Native bird declines are just the tip of the cat-licker's iceberg.
Posted: June 9, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Ten Lives: A Feral Cat Odyssey (4 comments)
Birds are just a minor subset of all the thousands of native animal species (billions of individual animals) that cat-lickers (criminally irresponsible cat-advocates) are annihilating around the world with their man-made invasive species vermin cats. Not only are these demented invasive-species house-cats-ONLY "animal lovers" now killing off all Big Cats in all wildlife reserves around the world: http://www.thenational.ae/news/uae-news/big-cat-owners-warned-to-keep-them-acres-away-from-feral-strays And for the ultimate example of absurdity and species-conservation irony, now making all moggie-licking residents of the UK the complete laughingstocks of the whole world, they've already made their ONE AND ONLY NATIVE CAT SPECIES EXTINCT in the UK (the inventors of that TNR insanity) with their invasive species "moggies": http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/sep/16/scottish-wildcat-extinction "A report, produced by the Scottish Wildcat Association, reviewed 2,000 records of camera trap recordings, eyewitness reports and road kills, and concluded there may be only about 40 wildcats left in Scotland in the wild today. 'However you juggle the figures, it is hard to find anything positive,' says Steve Piper, the association's chairman. 'The overwhelming evidence is that the wildcat is going to be extinct within months.'" ... "However, it is not the loss of habitat that is causing the current cat crisis in the Cairngorms. It is the spread of the domestic cat." ... "'Essentially the Highland wildcat is being eradicated by an alien invasive species: the domestic cat.'" (report quoted from last year, they are no-doubt extinct by now) As well as killing off all their inland River Otters in England (and elsewhere) with their cats' parasites: http://www.wildlifeextra.com/go/news/otter-toxoplasmosis.html As well as cats' parasites killing off all rare and endangered marine mammals on all coastlines around the world (worse than any oil-spill that has ever existed or could even be imagined): http://news.msn.com/science-technology/deadly-cat-feces-killing-thousands-of-marine-mammals http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/news/hawaiian-monk-seals Plus these cat-licking "animal lover" psychopaths and sociopaths are also killing off all the Mountain Lions (Cougars, Puma, Endangered Florida Panther, etc.), and all other native cat species in North America: http://rapidcityjournal.com/sports/local/feral-cats-pose-threat-to-birds-lions/article_8ec451c9-4b03-55a3-baa7-71ac577905cb.html But now these cat-lickers are even killing off rare whales and causing massive birth-defects in the indigenous Inuit people who depend on seal-meat for their very survival. Seals that were infected (and are also dying-off) from these cat-lickers' cats' parasites. Cat parasite found in western Arctic Beluga deemed infectious http://news.ubc.ca/2014/02/13/bigthaw/ Let's thank these psychotic bible-home-schooled cat-lickers for all the fine work they do for being such fantastic "animal lovers", shall we? THEY JUST LOVE CATS SO MUCH! So caring! So thoughtful! SO intelligent! So FULL of love for living things! So much so that they will even sacrifice whole races of humans to death-by-birth-defect to prove how much they love their vermin invasive-species cats. I'd love to thank them all, each with a gift of a solitary-confinement prison-cell -- FOR LIFE. Better yet, for their VAST ecological crimes and sins against all of nature and all of humanity, hanged-until-dead would be a far more fitting "gift" for them AND the whole planet. That used to be the punishment for engaging in bio-warfare against the human population and all other animal life in any country. I say bring it back -- special, just for them.
The TNR Con-Game
Posted: June 9, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Ten Lives: A Feral Cat Odyssey (4 comments)
The TNR CON-GAME FACT: Trap & Kill failed because cats cannot be trapped faster than they exponentially breed out of control. FACT: Trap, Neuter, & Re-Abandon (TNR) is an even bigger abject failure because these man-made ecological disasters cannot be trapped faster than they exponentially breed out of control, and they also continue to cruelly annihilate all native wildlife (from the smallest of prey up to the top predators that are starved to death), and the cats continue to spread many deadly diseases that they carry today — FOR WHICH THERE ARE NO VACCINES AGAINST THEM. Many of which are even listed as bioterrorism agents. (Such as Tularemia and The Plague — Yes, people have already died from cat-transmitted plague in the USA. No fleas nor rats even required. The cats themselves carry and transmit the plague all on their own.) FACT: THERE IS ABSOLUTELY _NOTHING_ HUMANE ABOUT TNR. Nearly every last TNR’ed cat dies an inhumane death by road-kill, from cat and animal attacks, environmental poisons, starvation, dehydration, freezing to death, infections, eaten from the inside-out by parasites, etc. And if very very lucky humanely shot to death or re-trapped and drowned (the two most common methods employed on all farms and ranches to protect their gestating livestock’s offspring and valuable native wildlife dying from cats’ Toxoplasmosis parasites). This doesn’t begin to count the thousands of defenseless native animals that cats skin alive and disembowel alive for their daily and hourly play-toys. And pitting cat against cat to fight-to-the-death for territory is ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENT than those who run criminal dog-fight rings to see who wins. They spend YEARS in jail. IT IS A HIGHLY PUNISHABLE CRIME TO FORCE *ANY* DOMESTICATED ANIMALS TO FIGHT EACH OTHER FOR THEIR VERY SURVIVAL. FACT: Hunted To Extinction (or in this case, extirpation of all outdoor cats) is the ONLY method that is faster than a species like cats can exponentially out-breed and out-adapt to. Especially a man-made invasive species like these cats that can breed 2X-4X’s faster than any naturally occurring cat-species. FACT: The only difference in destroying cats immediately and humanely instead of trapping, sterilizing, then releasing them to an inhumane death and forcing them to fight-to-the-death for survival; is that money isn’t going into Becky Robinson's Alley-Cat-All-Lies pocket, or an HSUS or SPCA board-member’s pocket, veterinarian’s pocket, cat-food company CEO’s pocket, or a drug-company CEO’s pocket. And that’s the ONLY difference! Support yet another organization that exploits and perpetuates the suffering of animals for their own personal financial gain, then try to sleep well at night. FACT: These manipulative, deceptive, and deceitful TNR proponents are now clipping cats ears ONLY. WITHOUT vaccinations nor sterilizing them. They do this to save money and protect their outdoor hoarded cat colonies from being trapped and euthanized by the state because the clipped-ear shows officials that they have been sterilized and vaccinated. Why pay $140 for each cat and all that time when just a trap and a simple snip of scissors on each one can also protect their hoarded cats from being destroyed? (I have absolute proof of this.) FACT: Cats are a man-made (through selective breeding) invasive species. And as such, are no less of a man-made environmental disaster than any other caused by man. Cats are even worse than an oil-spill of continent-sized proportions. They not only kill off rare and endangered marine-mammals along all coastlines from run-off carrying cats’ Toxoplasma gondii parasites, they destroy the complete food-chain in every ecosystem where cats are found. From smallest of prey gutted and skinned alive for cats’ tortured play-toys, up to the top predators that are starved to death from cats destroying their ONLY food sources. (Precisely what cats caused on my own lands not long ago.) FACT: In _SIXTEEN_YEARS_ Alley Cat ALL-LIES branch of NYC have only reduced feral cats in their own city by 0.08% to 0.024% (as the months go on that percentage becomes more insignificant), allowing more than 99.92% to 99.976% to exponentially breed out of control. Here’s how Alley-Cat-ALL-LIES’ deceptive math works: If you TNR 4 cats and 3 get flattened by cars this translates to 75% fewer feral-cats everywhere. Alley Cat ALL-LIES of NYC can’t even reduce cats in their own city, yet they promote it as a worldwide solution. Then even bigger fools fall for it and promote it. FACT: When researching over 100 of the most “successful” TNR programs worldwide, JUST ONE trapped more than 0.4%. Oregon’s 50,000 TNR’ed cats (the highest rate I found) is 4.9% of all ferals in their state. Yet, by applying population growth calculus on the unsterilized 95.1% they will have trapped only 0.35% of all cats in their state sometime this year. Less than 0.4% is a far cry from the required 75%-85% to be the least bit effective. FACT: Their mythical “vacuum effect” is a 100% LIE. A study done by the Texas A&M University proved that any perceived “vacuum” is just the simple case that CATS ATTRACT CATS. Get rid of them all and there are no cats there to attract more. I proved this myself by shooting and burying hundreds of them on my own lands. ZERO cats replaced them FOR OVER FOUR YEARS NOW. If you want more cats, keep even one of them around, more will find you. That university study also found that sterilized cats very poorly defend any territory. Non-sterilized cats, being more aggressive, take over the sterilized cats’ resources (shelter & food if any). If there is any kind of “vacuum effect” at all, it is that sterilizing cats cause non-sterilized cats to restore the reproductive void. FACT: During all this investigation I have discovered something that is unfaltering without fail. Something that you can bet your very life on and win every last time. That being — IF A TNR CAT-HOARDER IS TALKING THEN THEY ARE LYING. 100% guaranteed!
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your  email and links documenting the serious issue of the spread of disease and cross breeding by feline feral populations.  Like the spread of small pox among Native Americans, I can see how the spread of disease could do more damage to native species than physical attacks.
With that said, solitary confinement for life seems a bit harsh.  I recently visited D block at Alcatraz and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.  
Education and responsible pet ownership seems to be the key.
The American Veterinary Medical Association’s guidelines for Responsible Pet Ownership include:
  • “Preventing pet(s) from negatively impacting other people, animals and the environment, including proper waste disposal, noise control, and not allowing pet(s) to stray or become feral.”
Sounds good to me.

Three years ago I found "Russia Today" to offer an interesting, different perspective on world events. Then two years ago, something happened. Since that time it's been consistently, virulently anti-West "news and opinions" that to me is just strident propaganda. I've stopped watching it. I realize CPT12 offers lots of different perspectives, and I appreciate that. But when free speech turns into hate speech, I have to disconnect from it.

seeds of death- poisonous soy is ruining my life
Posted: June 5, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (7 comments)
Thanks for this great program! Your are doing us a huge service! In the last couple years I have had to totally avoid soy in order not to end up in the hospital. I believe GMO soy has created this problem. Avoiding soy is almost impossible inasmuch as it is added to so many human foodstuffs: cottage cheese, canned tuna, all bakery items, all frozen meals, to mention a few. I have developed migrainous vertigo which results in my falling to the floor with my vision whirling so rapidly I can only see whiteness while vomiting and having diarrhea and trying not to scream. I cannot tell up from down and cannot help myself. This lasts for hours until medicines administered by an ER eventually help. Of course, I can no longer eat Asian food. I have to spend hours reading labels (tons of tiny print) on food products when grocery shopping which--takes a long time. I mostly have to eat only organic fruits and vegetables and cook my own food. I know that our drinking water in Denver is dangerous since Denver Water lies and manipulates. There are hundreds of oil spills every year. One site in a river (Clear Creek) contained booms to corral and absorb the toxic chemicals. These booms were undoubtedly swept away during the huge floods. I am horribly allergic to benzene, yet the EPA allows a certain amount of benzene in drinking water. And the FDA allows it in medicines. The State of Colorado designates certain water bodies as non-drinking water and does not fine industry for chemical spills into those bodies of water. Parachute Creek for example. I use a distiller for my drinking and cooking water. But showers produce fumes that are toxic too. GMO foods should be labeled. And the manufacture, sale, and use of GMO substances should be banned. As you say, they are terribly dangerous to our health, lives, and the world. Thanks

This has the mythology backwards
Posted: June 2, 2014 by Joshua Rose
Program: Ten Lives: A Feral Cat Odyssey (4 comments)
I am horrified that a PBS affiliate would broadcast such blatantly biased propaganda. The harm that feral cats cause to songbirds and other wildlife is not a "negative myth", it has been repeatedly established by peer-reviewed scientific studies, over and over again. To claim otherwise is science denial, pure and simple. What's next? Will your station broadcast programming in support of young-earth creationism? Or perhaps a show proclaiming that vaccines cause autism? Broadcasting anti-scientific nonsense like this erodes the credibility of PBS and undermines all of the great work done by other PBS shows like Nova, Frontline, and all of the kids' educational shows. Please broadcast something scientifically substantiated instead of this fuzzy-brained waste of time.

I have never seen the BBC program on TV, "Why We Lost the Vietnams War".
Posted: May 30, 2014 by Name Withheld
In bopping around on the Internet, I and my wife came across a documentary done by the BBC on "Why We Lost the Vietnam War". It covered the Black Lion Army Unit, getting wiped out, as one part of the story...and for a counterpoint presented the University of Wisconsin at Madison "sit ins" and "teach ins" that turned into a huge confrontation with local law enforcement when the Chancellor of the University unwisely "called the local Madison Police Dept. to come on Campus and move the students away from a sit in within the hallways. It Showed the views of "both sides" of the U. of Wisconsin students and then the governing administration. This BBC TV program showed the deception, the ignorance, the deceipt of "war planners", Field Commanders, General Westmoreland, the Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, The Press,and President Johnson. The vivid hour long picture shows what a huge tragic mistake the Vietnam "gung ho" War was in the history of American foreign policy.

Hit Irish TV comedy now on other PBS stations. Why not channel 12? Thanks for the consideration.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for your inquiry.  You may not be aware but we are a partial PBS affiliate and therefore we are limited on the number of hours of PBS programs we can broadcast.  That being said we have to make tough decisions on what to broadcast (i.e. Masterpiece, Frontline, American Experience) versus other programs.  The comedy you mentioned sounds great but unfortunately we are max’d out on our program hours.

Thank God the glass boxes are going away. Those buildings gave way to Dilbert cubicles inside and look alike cars. Talk about boring. And, whew! Now there's Frank Geary. with some personality instead of the brain dead Soviet Communist style severity that went the world over. May we never see the likes again. I hate this kind of "architecture"! It makes me want to drive a nail into my eyeball and run for the hills.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email and  personal take on the merits of  Mid Century Modern architecture. It’s like they day, “ Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.”
With that said when it comes to architecture,  I personally  would prefer Louis Sullivan’ Wainwright Building over Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram Building.
To me, Geary is more about sculpture than useable space.

Program: STEM: Latinos, A Critical Need in America (1 comment)
My husband and I found this in the television guide today, and watched it. We were very excited to hear some wonderful ideas about how to get students (Hispanic or not) interested in exploring STEM subjects and careers. If we had know about it earlier, we would have let teachers here in South Park know, so that they could watch it. We did record it, but on a DVR, so can't share it with others. Will the program be repeated? Or is it possible to get a DVD or other form of recording of the program? This should be widely disseminated among educators, all across the country.

I look forward to watching "American Experience-1964." Hopefully, it will set forth the lies and deception that President Lyndon B. Johnson told to both the American public and to Congress which got the U.S. military involved in this tragic and senseless war. This war resulted in the deaths of 58,000 American military along with the deaths of many Vietnamese citizens. In addition, there were thousands more civilian and military casualties. Today, high school students don't learn much about this war. Kudos for showing this documentary during the week that we celebrate Memorial Day.

Fracking lies
Posted: May 20, 2014 by John Wilson
Program: FrackNation (7 comments)
While it is true fracking has been used in Colorado for years as it has elsewhere in this country, but the important difference is that it was limited to vertical well unclogging not horizontal fracking as is now done. The oil companies are not at all interested in the gas as much as 30% of all natural gas in the new fields in N. Dakota is flared uselessly polluting our air. The oil companies don't care about the gas they want the oil which is very profitable now. So lets try to act like your not bribed by the big oil and gas companies even if you are as is so very plain for all of us long time supporters. You don't need my tax dollars or my support. Go whore your self's to big oil and gas and you'll get it in the end if you know what I mean.

Crop Circles
Posted: May 17, 2014 by Name Withheld
Greetings, Thanks so much for the wonderful service you have provided to the citizens of metro Denver for many years. I must apologize that my initial contact is not more positive; however, I was surprised to see a program on crop circles on Channel 12 this morning, which supports the idea that crop circles are created by extraterrestrials. That theory was debunked many years ago. There are many more simple and believable explanations (including many people who have admitted creating them and demonstrated how they did it). The woman who made the outrageous claims and appeared excited about profiting from these claims clearly did not believe in this ruse - she was part of it. These sorts of outrageous claims - especially as supported by a well-respected station such as your own - may contribute to the increasingly questionable judgment of Americans in general. My hope is that others will call attention to this sort of misalignment with the expectations of educated people and encourage you to report only on topics which stand up to true scientific inspection. Thanks, J

PS -- Strongly object to Don Sullivan's dog training special
Posted: May 13, 2014 by Sue Howe
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (7 comments)
My previous post was too long, and this stuff wasn't included -- 5 DON SULLIVAN [and the company that sells his stuff, Thane] Complaints and reviews from real people http://www.pissedconsumer.com/company/don-sullivan.html * Anybody tried Don Sullivan's The Perfect Dog system? Saw an infomercial for this dog training video and equipment: .... Have you purchased this? What was your experience with it? Would you recommend? Best Answer -- Asker's Choice Agility Man answered 6 years ago -- This is a great example of someone being very savvy in how they use the internet. Do a quick search of "Don Sullivan" and "Perfect Dog" and you find a gazillion forums with a question and then a couple of responses that are all positive (without explaining the technique). Yet strangely, the responses seem to read the same..."he's a down to earth guy" or "true to the promises in the infomercial" or "saw results within weeks" or "worked better than anything I've ever tried". 1. Don Sullivan claims that treats don't work. Yeah, if you're luring. But decades of operant conditioning research (with humans and species such as dolphins, horses, cats, orcas and certainly dogs) has proven this to be wrong. The problem is you've got a bunch of old time, out-of-touch with new research, people who think that treats are bribes. They aren't. What you're doing is shaping the association that a dog has with a particular event. 2. He doesn't use a marker (for dogs that would be a clicker, for dolphins or orcas, a whistle) Research has shown that this is the simplest, fastest way to train. All serious animal trainers at places like SeaWorld or in Hollywood animal trainers rely on them. 3. His technique is build around a modified plastic prong collar. Yes, it will change behavior but only a very superficial way. For instance, let's suppose your dog gets frantic when strangers approach the door and begins to bark rapidly. You use the Sullivan collar and the barking stops. Problem solved? Not quite. The dog likely transfers the behavior to something. For instance, it would probably become more likely to bite. The point I'm making is that pain and adversive behavior doesn't solve WHY the dog does what it does, it just shifts the behavior. So if your dog is threatened by a neighboring dog and begins barking whenever that dog appears so you "correct" than your dog doesn't suddenly feel that the other dog isn't a threat, it just doesn't bark. Instead, it may look for an opportunity to attack. Or it may feel that you can't be trusted. Or the dog may be more likely to flee. For decades, old school trainers have used choke collars and prong collars to train dogs. Of course they can produce behavior change. But what we've conclusively found is that it doesn't change WHY the dog was behaving that way, the behavior is transferred to something else, it often produces aggressive dogs or aggressive behavior and it doesn't improve bonds with the handler or owner. But other than that, it's effective. I'll give you one last thought: I compete in agility. At the highest levels, absolutely none of the handlers I know of would treat their dogs this way. And some of them run rescues (so it's not that they have some rare unique dog different from the rest of us). Some of those agility folks have dogs that do tricks shows or TV ads for dog products--again, they'd never think of using such behavior. Save your money. It's much like BarkBusters in that it's all promo. Far better to invest in something like Patricia McConnell's books (the Other End of the Leash is a good one) or Leslie McDevitt's "Control Unleashed" (if you've got a reactive dog) or visit Shirley Chong's website. https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080912153353AAtJ4yf * Don Sullivan's Secrets to Training the Perfect Dog (www.theperfectdog.com) Complaints & Reviews - Fraud About 14 comments, including the terms "Rip Off" and "Fraud" http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/don-sullivan039s-secrets-to-training-the-perfect-dog-wwwtheperfectdogcom-c158971.html * Well, thanks for listening.

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (7 comments)
Hi. I like a lot of PBS shows, and when we watch anything, it's usually on PBS. * I strongly object to PBS showing the Don Sullivan Wake Up and Smell the Poop dog training show. I did some checking, and read significant numbers of reviews that dealing with his company is a pain, with underhanded dealings by the company, that the materials are of poor quality and break quickly, that the program and collar don't work, and that the collar will cause pain in the dogs. The collar he recommends and sells has sharp plastic points that when you YANK (and yes, I saw Sullivan YANK on the collars to get several dogs to go down), the points dig into the dog's neck. And no, that's not how dog mothers or other dogs do it -- when they do it, it doesn't hurt. I don't know if you picked this up, but the small tan dog he "trained" and then just stayed up on the deck and didn't go out onto the lawn even with temptations, but that dog was suffering inside. Don Sullivan says he doesn't dominate the dogs, but that after he "trains" them with pulling and yanking on the collar, he shows that he still cares about the animal by showing affection, and that the dogs aren't harmed. I disagree. The Humane Society recommends that people do NOT use collars like he uses and sells. They recommend positive training methods rather than aversive collars Here's some of my research-- Humane Society -- ...Aversive collars Some trainers use aversive collars to train "difficult" dogs with correction or punishment. These collars rely on physical discomfort or even pain to teach the dog what not to do. They suppress the unwanted behavior, but they don't teach him what the proper behavior is. At best, they are unpleasant for your dog, and at worst, they may cause your dog to act aggressively and even bite you. Positive training methods should always be your first choice. Learn the techniques » Choke chain As the name implies, this collar is made of metal links and is designed to control your dog by tightening around your dog's neck. It is supposed to sit high up on the dog's neck just behind her ears. Unlike the martingale collar, there is no way to control how much the choke chain tightens, so it's possible to choke or strangle your dog. It can also cause other problems, too, such as injuries to the trachea and esophagus, injuries to blood vessels in the eyes, neck sprains, nerve damage, fainting, transient paralysis, and even death. It is best for your dog if you avoid using a choke chain. More humane collars and good obedience training should make it unnecessary to resort to this aversive collar. If you insist on using one, consult an experienced trainer to learn how to properly size, fit, and use it. And never leave a choke chain on your dog as her regular collar; the chain could catch on something and choke your dog! Prong or pinch The prong or pinch collar is similar in style to the martingale. The control loop that the leash is attached to is made of chain. The loop that fits around your dog's neck is made of a series of fang-shaped metal links, or prongs, with blunted points. When the control loop is pulled, the prongs pinch the loose skin of your dog's neck. Like the choke chain, the prong collar must be properly fitted. The size of the prong links should be appropriate for the size of your dog. The collar should sit high up on your dog's neck, just behind his ears. The fit should be snug, so the prong links can't shift to the front of your dog's neck where they might pinch your dog's trachea. More humane collars and good obedience training should make it unnecessary to resort to this aversive collar. If you insist on using one, consult an experienced trainer to learn how to properly size, fit, and use it.... http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/dogs/tips/collars.html * Here are some of the bad reviews -- Don Sullivan Perfect Dog Fast Results Pet Training Package, Large -- Go to PetCo to get dog training, February 20, 2014 This review is from: Don Sullivan Perfect Dog Fast Results Pet Training Package, Large (Misc.) You can go register for personal training of your dog at PetCo for the price of this package. The collar is especially troublesome because when you take your dog for a walk, if he pulls the least bit the collar will tighten around his/her neck and choke them to the point of causing them to dry heave/throw up. The nylon rope will only last for a couple of weeks before your pet chews thru it. I'd return it if I could. I don't recommend it. Get a dog collar that is comfortable for your dog, not one that will kill them. NOT FOR ME OR MY DOG!, January 2, 2014 This review is from: Don Sullivan Perfect Dog Fast Results Pet Training Package, Small (Misc.) I was enthusiastic when I ordered this product after seeing it on TV. First of all, I should have know with all of the double meaning comments that something was up. All I needed to do was to read the vague booklet and more importantly look at the inside of the collar (which is all zig zagged plastic points reminding me of medieval times) that is intended to inflict pain on the animal. Unbelievable. If you have a hopeless dog that is ready for the pound, etc. it probably would be your last resort. If instead you have a loveable dog (like mine) that has a couple of annoying problems (separation anxiety and getting excited and happy when people arrive at the house) this type of obedience training is just plain old cruelty. Not for me or my dog. Thane customer service totally s*cks!, January 29, 2014 By This review is from: Don Sullivan Perfect Dog Fast Results Pet Training Package, Large (Misc.) Nice I love the collar and training guide. When I first ordered this through the company it was nothing less than disappointment. Took over a moth to get and when it came it came without the video and collar. I had to pay return shipping and fill out a form that it wasn't on the package. Plus I ordered the training cards and they sent two but order said one. Totally messed up my order and expected me to pay for returned shipping. Would never advice anyone to use that company. Ordered from Amazon and got my total order in two days with cheap shipping. Always use Amazon!

He is an excellent dog trainer but this book is basically an autobiography. 1.0 out of 5 stars waste of money, March 24, 2014 This review is from: Wake Up and Smell the Poop!: The myths, deceptions, lies and obsessions that keep you from having the Perfect Dog (Paperback) tall tales, long-winded. This has nothing to do with his training program, which is pretty good. The less said the better (the review required 4 more words, hence these 4) * 3-star review-- Yes and no, October 20, 2013 This review is from: Don Sullivan Perfect Dog Max Results Pet Training Package, Large (Misc.) First let me explain the things I like about this product. The set is very well organized and provides just about everything you need to provide basic training according to Don Sullivan's method, with the possible exception of a muzzle. It includes 3 lengths of training lines as well as leather gloves, which are pretty much essential if you let your dog drag the lines on the ground like Sullivan indicates. You also get a condensed set of instructions on a ring that you can take into the field with you, plus a set of 2 training DVDs. The DVDs have menus and sub-menus so you can go directly to the segment that you want to watch. The DVDs provide ample demonstration and explanation for each training activity to help you do the training exercises as Sullivan indicates. You also get Sullivan's own design training collar. There are also things I wasn't too thrilled about with this set, though. I didn't realize this when I selected the product, but the "training" collar is basically a spiky plastic collar (spikes on the inside, against the dog's neck) which is a modified version of a prong collar that sticks prongs in the dog's neck for correction purposes. The collar easily comes apart for adding or taking out links, and the video shows you exactly how to do this, so you can get a pretty precise fit on it, and it could conceivably be used again for a different sized dog. I'm not convinced that this type of collar is necessary, though, since I've seen some very well trained dogs that were never handled this way. While I do agree that a lot of the usual training tools people are sold are kind of useless, and I even agree that the treat-based training system I was taught to use has its down sides, in order to get Sullivan's results with this set you have to be willing to use it the same way he does, and that means correcting your dog frequently with short jerks on the lead, which will cause a bit of discomfort. This is certainly not going to injure your dog, and Sullivan emphasizes that during training you want to build your close relationship with your dog. It just makes me uncomfortable because I'm not convinced it's necessary to inflict pain or discomfort to en

Even the link on his site that is supposed to be a list of all programs doesn’t have any information for 2014. There are some videos on his site but they seem to be after-the-fact.

There is a place where you can sign-up for e-mails but I don’t know if that would give you more information or not. Here is the link - http://www.patronmail.com/pmailweb/PatronSetup?oid=1057.

Concerning Create TV
Posted: May 11, 2014 by Esther Whalen
I used to get Create TV here in Colorado Springs. But now it has disappeared. I do not have cable TV of any kind. I have CenturyLink through their modem and router. I seem to get KBDI of some sort. I have only rabbit ears but they don't seem to hold a signal very well, so I am very limited on stations I get. I guess I need another kind of unit, but I don't know what to get. I live on the third floor of a 3-story apartment building, no balcony. I REALLY want Create TV. When I could receive it, it was all I watched because regular TV has the most disgusting trash on it. Not worth my time, and especially not worth my money. Thank you for any help or suggestions you can give. Esther Whalen

for the replacement of jobs in the communities? Most of those now depending on fracking were severely affected by the joke of the oil shale boom and lost everything. In this economy, where do they work? My husband is 4 years from retirement in the field, his family also receive modest royalties which count as the bulk of his elder siblings' incomes. What about the loss of revenue to the state? What do you propose to replace it with in the immediate time to fill these losses? I have a son who has worked with renewables that are shipped to other countries, so much could be done with them here. So how do we break the chokehold of Big Oil? There is so little offere to people whose very lives right through to death depend upon good paying jobs and bennies that many fracking companies offer. My husband has always had great healthcare, 401k that survived fairly well, and now an actual retirement fund as well. His company puts $1,000 annually into our HSA to help cover out of pocket medical. When he was hurt on the job, his company paid a top surgeon of his choice to perform surgery, then paid him full pay throughout a three month recovery, along with all therapy and expenses. Many others would have legally fired him at once. Where in this country could we replace all of THAT?

If public funds pay for political discussion it should be all inclusive
Posted: May 2, 2014 by Susan Hall
I just finished watching CPT12's extremely short discussion about the candidates that will be running for Colorado Governor from the Republican and Democratic party. It seems to me if you truly wanted to provide a service for all the people in Colorado you would include third parties like the Green Party too. The numbers of people who are voting for those 3rd parties are important. In the last election there were around 30,000 votes for the Green Party candidates. Also Green Party candidate for Governor, Harry Hempy has some very important ideas for progressive change that would benefit the Colorado citizens and their voting system. It would be worth allowing the public to hear these ideas. We have also seen how appreciated the independent Senator Bernie Sanders has been to Vermont and I believe many of the Green candidates are in line with the ideals Senator Sanders is pushing forward and the number of independents in the state are very high. Thank you, Susan Hall susanphall@yahoo.com
Hemp oil coverage

I'm sending this to the Denver news outlets and their network affiliates. "Instead of continuing the sensationalistic and negative coverage of the state's marijuana laws, why not educate the public (and the obviously ignorant segment of the populaion) on the proper and safe way to boil down marijuana to hemp oil (the so-called hash oil that's been on your broadcasts so much). Rick Simpson has been doing it safely for years in Canada while helping cancer victims (and survivors thanks to his efforts). It wasn't just the get-highs that voted this in, you know." Surely there is a way of educating the public on the safe use of cannabis without promoting it's use, wouldn't you think?

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (7 comments)
I worked with Don for several weeks and saw him transform dogs with extremely bad behavior in a very short amount of time. He was gentle and kind, some dogs with stronger wills needed more correction than other dogs but for the most part the training lasted 15 minutes and the dogs bad habits were gone. Some of these dogs were so difficult that their owners were considering giving the dog up, afterwards they couldn't believe the difference!! The collar is not a typical metal prong collar, which I also do not care for but more of a hard plastic pyramid shape. I have used it one several dogs I have rescued over the years who have had no training and came from awful circumstances. All my dogs hike off leash, come when called, sit, stay and are able to go everywhere with me. I am sure the "Trainers" who are up in arms about his training methods are also against remote collars as well and anyone with hunting dogs uses them. I have worked with trainers who treat train and use all different sorts of methods but this is most effective training and is perfect for the person who has tried everything and nothing has worked. My dog is famous in my town because he is so incredibly well behaved, everyone knows him by name, he is the perfect dog!!

KBDI WV captions
Posted: April 12, 2014 by Name Withheld
I've noticed the captions on the worldview channel are very interesting. The captions don't match the newscasters, and it almost looks like the captions have been taken over by a caption hacker. I don't mind, I mainly look at the video, and because I'm mostly deaf, I don't hear much anyway. That's why I use captions, but on KBDI WV, they are not accurate. They are very political and if I might add, insightful.

hi i am seeing through some friends that season 3 of front and center features the avett bothers but i see no mention of them as you seem to be airing season 2 right now any info on season 3 episode with the avett brothers thank you for a reply denise
CPT12 Response:
Season 3 of Front and Center began feeding from satellite once a week beginning  4/3/14 .  Sometimes we may wait until we have most of the series in-house before air a series for continuity’s sake.  Since the series isn’t in the current or 30 days out schedule (we typically do our schedules at least 30 days out) Season 3 will likely air in June.  You may want to check our website’s schedule tab about mid-May – www.cpt12.org.

Tavis smiley direct contact and CPT 12 direct contact
Posted: April 8, 2014 by john roehling
Hi contacts, Hello, how do you do this? I checked the Tavis Smiley website for one part of the contacts and was disgustingly surprised at how self-promotional and opaque it was. No real contact links anywhere, let alone a phone number. At least CPT12 has something that takes an email. Nothing obvious or even hidden at Tavis Smiley. Got a phone number for them? I'll inquire about the contact link myself. You don't want to hear it, but I started this at about 6:15 Tuesday night. I think you catch the drift. Thanks, John

timing of warning .

I watch pbs 12 every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for painting instruction. At about 4 minutes in the nation weather warning system goes off and I cannot hear the painters instructions. Why you do this so often when it not required I do not understand, but since you do could you move the time to the end of Sesame Street please. Please, Please, Please. The info missed can be important for learning info. Thank you Bobby Powell
CPT12 Response:
Due to the size of our staff and the fact that we are not manned 24 hours a day, the EAS signal is automatic.  In other words, the signal goes to air at the time it comes in.  Perhaps in the future we can deal with it in a more viewer-friendly way.

On april 3rd a song came on at the end of ireland today. All I remember is a fierce recorder. Well at the end of this 3 minute song the word Ireland came up in green. Can someone there tell me the name of that song, or can I make a request that you play that song more often? MHz worldview also has a song for moroco that I like, but this email is about an irish song. Please help if you can.
CPT12 Response:
I am unable to find the program you request: “Ireland Today”.  However, I assume that it was RTÉ Six One News you saw at 4 pm on April 3rd.  I tried to discover what the music was, but couldn’t find it searching the website.  My suggestion is to go to the web link below and request the information.

Brighton Drilling moratorium
Posted: April 4, 2014 by Dick Hodge
Program: Colorado Inside Out (5 comments)
A fine point I guess, but Brighton did not impose a fracking ban. I know it's fun to say frack on TV, but surely all you usually bright folk know better. Maybe not so smart a move, but not a fracking ban.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you very much for your note.  We always appreciate hearing from our viewers, especially when we are in error.
 
You are absolutely right that we should not have characterized what Brighton did last week as lifting a fracking ban.  It was indeed a drilling moratorium, and not a fracking ban, that was lifted.
 
The error was my fault as I was the one who wrote the topic and didn’t dig down enough into the story, ironically, to see exactly what happened.
 
I appreciate the fact that you let us know when we were wrong and it will help us double down our efforts to present the facts when we discuss these issues on Colorado Inside Out.

My dear reader, you have to read this. Dr Malaika doesn’t ask for testimonies and he doesn’t charge. He is genuine and people get to meet him by luck. But right now am your luck if you could meet him. Every other testimonies you read here are scams...... Dr Malaika lives in Nigeria and I happened to meet him by chance after a friend told me about him. I followed these internet testimonies and was hugely scammed to the extent that I wanted to kill myself. Dr Malaika turned my situation around by bringing back my ex and made me regain double of what I lost over to these scams. He made my ex come crawling to have him back. All I spent was $250 and at last gained back all my lost money and even double of it. His email address is odogwumalaika@gmail.com but please don’t make him know that I published him on net. He is just wonderful and I wish whoever that finds him good luck. Don’t forget his email address is odogwumalaika@gmail.com Yours truly Benita Moyes
News ? First Ukraine - NOT !
Posted: April 3, 2014 by David Cerullo
Hello, I hope all is well at Channel 12. Hey I watch you more than anyone - MHZ news from all over the world in particular. Miss Al Jazeera ;-( I am not an expert, but ... I have spent a year in Ukraine in 9 trips since 2006. Been to Crime 4 times - Yalta; Sevastopol twice. Crimea is much more Russian than the rest of Ukraine. They have had military there for hundreds of years and, just like around US bases, a lot of retired military. All ethnic Russians. In the end, it is better for THE PEOPLE of Crimea to be in Russia - especially with the US and NATO backed neo-fascists having violently overthrown the elected govt in Kyiv. Riots, bank robberies, kidnappings, violence ... not in Crimea !!! I am appalled by the content of the First Ukraine broadcasts. I have seen 3. You cannot call this anything but propaganda. 3 of 6 stories in one show were all about Russian troops preparing to invade Ukraine ... or Moldova ... or Poland. The Russians are coming !!! OMG !!! The Russian soldiers are in Russia - unlike US soldiers that are in dozens of countries around the world - many of which (like Okinawa) have been trying to get rid of the US for years. The Crimeans like the Black Sea Fleet and the Russian military in Crimea. Please DO NOT support the propaganda that the peaceful referendum is illegal but the violent overthrow of the govt in Kyiv is legal. David

ZEAL Optics Presents The Cradle of Storms
Posted: March 31, 2014 by Jamie Normandin
Hello, I wanted to reach out about a potential story idea around an event we’re hosting at the Boulder Theater on April 3. The event is a fundraiser for the 5 Gyres Institute, a group that’s raising consciousness about the five large garbage patches in the world’s oceans and working to clean them up, and the event is the culmination of a group of local businesses’ efforts to band together and raise consciousness of a global issue while at the same time growing our local economy through the power of travel, fun, and sport. Quite a combination, right? To make this happen, we’re bringing out two of our surf athletes, Pete Devries and Josh Mulcoy, some of the best surfers in the world, as well as world renowned surf and travel photographer Chris Burkard, to premiere their new movie, “The Cradle of Storms”, an odyssey documenting a trip to Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, the birthplace of most of our hemisphere’s largest storms. The film will be followed by performances by Denver’s Thee Dang Dangs and MTHDS, and is being supported by the Colorado Coalition, a group of brands including TOPO Designs, working to craft products with a deep story here in Colorado. This cause is particularly meaningful to ZEAL Optics as we make all of our sunglasses from plant-based resins and have eliminated the use of petroleum in our products to decrease the amount of plastic going into our landfills, waterways and oceans. Let me know if there’s any interest in doing a story on this movement, the event, or interviews with the athletes while they’re here. Here’s more on the event, the flyer is attached, and their a short trailer here: http://www.bouldertheater.com/event/zeal-optics-surfer-magazine-movie-premiere Jamie Normandin | Marketing & Event Coordinator 775.762.0304 | jnormandin@zealoptics.com ZEAL Optics — Explore More www.zealoptics.com facebook.com/zealoptics
Bibi Netanyahoo
Posted: March 30, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Israel: The Royal Tour (1 comment)
Channel 12, What was the programming rationale for airing that dreadful puff-piece for Israel featuring that unindicted war criminal, Netanyahoo? Was it inflicted on Channel 12 by AIPAC or some other Israel booster group? Or did your programming management actually think viewers would believe the horse manure that Bibi & Friends were spreading about the venomous, terrorist, expansionist, nuclear/chemical/biological weapons-ridden state of Jewland? Don't like the term Jewland? My god! Is not that nation officially called the Jewish State? Since when did Americans officially support theocratic nations? Five minutes of this execrable "show" was as much as I could suffer through. The Royal Tour (Royal? Is it now Emperor Bibi?) was neither travelogue, documentary, biography, nor a fair-minded assessment of that miserable apartheid country. Nor was it a work of fair-minded and impartial investigative journalism. As I pointed out earlier, it was a propagandistic puff-piece for faithful Israel firsters and the indigenous and long-suffering Palestinians be damned. Rick Steves and other traveloguers provide snapshot histories that at least pay lip service to national or regional histories and their troublesome pasts, but...The Royal Tour? Now, if you want to provide another perspective on Israel, I suggest you air two documentaries produced by the BBC. You have heard about the BBC, I trust? The first deals with Israel's deliberate and unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty, June 8, 1967. Thirty-four U.S. military and intelligence personnel were murdered by the Jewish State's armed forces. I believe the documentary was first aired in 2003. The History Channel also produced a documentary on the Liberty which was aired repeatedly for a number of weeks. BBC also produced a documentary about Israel's secret weapons hoard (2003). I certainly would like to view it----how about airing it together with a live post-show, interactive discussion? Your channel is becoming more advertisement riddled by the week. When are we going to get genuine publicly owned TV back? Other than specific programs on Channel 12.3 and occasionally Democracy Now!, I find no compelling reason to view anything on Channel 12 any longer. The same goes for Channel Six, if it makes you feel any better.

Last year December, My lover was cheating on me and was not also give me the attention that a man should give to a woman,And really that was troubling my mind and tearing my heart apart to the extent that i was not concentrating in the office the way i use to before the break up by my lover.And before that incident,I always see how my boss use to love his wife so much. I was binging to think that i was not doing the right thing to him that will make him love me forever,So i really gathered my courage and went to my boss wife office to ask her the secret that made her husband love her so dearly,In the first place she refused in telling me,She asked me why i am asking her such a question,That if is it not normal for every man to love his wife.I told her the reason that made me ask her about this question,That my lover started cheating on me lately,When i knelt down before her for her to see my seriousness in this issue that i went to ask her,She opened up to me by telling me that i should not tell anybody about what she want to tell me,The wife to my boss started to say to me that she used a very powerful spell on his husband to love her,And the spell that she used is harmless, But the spell is just to make him love her and never to look for any other woman except her. I QUICKLY ASK HER HOW DID SHE GET TO KNOW THIS GREAT,POWER,DURABLE AND PERFECT WORK SPELL CASTER,she said that a friend of hers also introduce her to him. Then i also ask her how i can meet with this spell caster.SHE SAID EVERYTHING TO ME,THAT THE NAME OF THIS SPELL CASTER IS Dr. Odemin. My next question to her was how can i get this wonderful spell caster,She said she is going to give me the email of the spell caster for me to contact him for my problem,Really she gave to me this spell caster email and i contacted him and explained all to him,And after every thing that needed to be done by the spell caster, In the next two days, My lover that hated me so much came to house begging for forgiveness and i was so glad that i have finally gotten my heart desire..I was so grateful to this spell caster for what he has done for my life.. So i made a promise to him that i will always continue telling the world about his wonderful work towards me and also to other that came to you before and also the people that will also get to you from my story that i narrated on line now..I will want to say to the entire world that you should not cry over noting again, That there is a great man that has been helping individuals to restore there Joy and smile in there faces !! The direct email to get this man is : Odeminspelltemple@yahoo.co.uk ,This is what i want to tell you all out there,That is thinking that all hope is lost OK..Thanks

Story Idea: Local Family in a Race Against Time and the FDA to Save Son
Posted: March 19, 2014 by Chris Dunne
ENGLEWOOD, CO--Ryan Dunne is 9-years-old, a third grader who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy which is a terminal disease. DMD has no known treatment. Kids with this genetic defect start to get weaker in elementary school and are often confined to an electric wheelchair by middle school. Few survive into their 20s because their bodies become progressively weaker until they lose the function of their lungs and heart. Ryan was fortunate because he was part of a group of boys that were in a study to test the effectiveness and safety of two new medicines awaiting FDA approval. During the six months he took these drugs, Ryan had marked improvements in his strength, stamina, and overall health. Those trials ended in September and since then, Ryan--along with other boys in the trial--are rapidly deteriorating. Despite the drug's lead investigator, Jerry Mendell, saying that it works, The FDA has yet to place these live-saving medications on track for accelerated approval, saying, "We recognize the huge unmet medical need in Duchene muscular dystrophy, the devastating nature of the disease for patients and their families, and the great urgency to make new treatments available." In hopes of accelerating the approval process, the Dunne family has started a petition on WhiteHouse.gov. They need 100,000 signatures by March 29, 2014 to have this issue addressed. Background Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-y5coYJaeuY ###

I write to urge you to remove Russia Today from your lineup of international news programming. While I enjoy watching news programs from all over the world, it has become completely clear in the last few weeks that Russia Today is purely a propaganda outlet for Vladimir Putin, and as such has no legitimate place in your programming. I do not wish my public TV dollars to be spent on propaganda. Please consider the integrity of you station, your reputation, and your viewers' best interests, and remove Russia Today from your schedule. Thank You, Lisa West

Colorado Public Television’s Channel 12.3 is a pass-through of the MHz Worldview Channel. Colorado Public Television does not have control of what they air. We take their programming “as is” off the internet. Any comments or feedback regarding programming on 12.3 should be sent directly to MHz Worldview  through the link below:
http://mhz.convio.net/site/Survey?SURVEY_ID=1141&ACTION_REQUIRED=URI_ACTION_USER_REQUESTS
With that said, many of our viewers find it enlightening to watch RT News; especially with what is going on in Ukraine. We  get to see how events are interpreted and managed for mass consumption by Putin and the Kremlin.   Our viewers, like you, know what it is.  That is part of the fascination.
But how about that dramatic on air resignationof Liz Wahl over Ukraine coverage on RT News? That was pretty cool. Apparently not everything at RT News can be controlled by the state.
Thanks for your feedback. We do appreciate, respect and take note of your concerns over the program.

Program: NOVA (2 comments)
Please pass on to your diectors and producers that 70-year old eyes do not appreciate their attemps to make a video more dramatic by introducing bright flashes between scenes (as in your preview of the catacombs program)and other methods of 'transitioning' from one scene to the next that are so difficult for older eyes to adjust to and follow. Although an older viewer, I am intensely interested in history and find this type of program very interesting to watch. But they are interesting to watch because of the subject matter, not because of the videomakers' attempts to introduce drama through these special effects.

My 8 year old daughter wanted to watch Cat in the Hat this morning as she ate breakfast and got ready for school. The show was not on although the program menu said it was and there was some type of Cirque Du Soleil type of show on. I thought it was a commercial so I left it on briefly until she said the music was scary. The program continued and Cat in the Hat did not come on. The music was scary, and I thought it was inappropriate for young children, so I had to turn the channel. Please keep to the kids programs, especially when kids are likely to be watching before and after school. Thank you, Wynn Chavez

Standardized Testing follow-up
Posted: March 9, 2014 by Peter Bergson
Program: Studio 12 (5 comments)
Your recent program with Steffan Tubbs as host was a great start in opening up a huge topic. I was especially interested to hear more of what Angela Engle had to say about the negative impact that standardized testing is having on students, teachers and schools themselves with regard to stress, wasted time, financial impact and irrelevance of results. Please bring her back, perhaps along with someone like Dr. Peter Gray ("Free to Learn", Perseus Books, 2013), to explore other ways in which schooling has run amuck. To repeat: Tubbs is a facile host who, given the time constraints, does a terrific job of giving all perspectives a fair voice, and he doesn't make the discussion about him! Thank you. Peter Bergson

I caught segments of a WorldVision product aired on Channel 12.3, Friday 3/7/2014 at 7:00 pm MST. I believe it was a Danish production, but I can't be certain. Circumstances prevented me from seeing both the beginning and end of the airing....can you provide me with enough particulars so that I can further identify / purchase the item? I know enough to search IMDB or WorldVision, but a few particulars would save me much time in the process. I was not easily able to search Channel 12.3 for the time slot. As a matter of fact, I could not even activate the link to 12.3. Cheers, Dave Morton ---- International Mysteries is by far the best show aired by Channel 12, Democracy Now! notwithstanding. It deserves much more publicity than it currently is given. Why not mention it during standard 12.1 promos? Dave Morton -- Longmont

Just wondering why you replaced peg+ cat on your afternoon schedule with bali? My older children love peg+ cat and were very disappointed to see it replaced with a much more juvenile show.

standardized testing
Posted: March 4, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Studio 12 (5 comments)
Thank you for your show on Standardized Testing: Does It Work? I would love to see a follow up show on the data mining. As a parent, more than the testing concern, I have concerns of the new testing being used for data mining. This point did not get addressed - and could take up a whole show on its own. How can schools go against privacy acts and upload student information to a national data base for others to view? How can parents prevent their child's information being included when the district is involved in this practice. I have been told we could opt out on TCAP but absolutely not for CMAS or PARCC. This is their gateway to the data mining system. Future shows could also address pitting teachers and schools against students if the student is not performing. The state of Colorado is a school of choice state, but many districts, charters and schools openly will not take a student if they have an IEP or 504. How is this FAPE Free and Appropriate Education? Are we moving to a segregated society when publicly funded schools can pick and choose who they will accept for admittance? Soon will we see students not being admitted because they under performed on standardized tests? Will schools suggest that the school is not a good fit and try to flush out the students? Unfortunately, one would like to think that would not happen, but think about this; several students are keeping a teacher or administrator possibly close to retirement from a pay raise or even jeopardizing their livelihood, will they take the high road or take it out on the student?
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email.
I will forward your comments and questions to the producer of Studio 12. The intersection of high stakes testing, data mining of students, and school choice would make a fascinating topic to explore in future episodes.

CCTV, an official propaganda arm of the Chinese government and the Chinese Communist Party, is being distributed to public television stations in the U.S. through a public television programming service called MHz Worldview, a project of MHz Networks. Florida broadcaster Jerry Kenney has taken a look at this aspect of the bias. His analysis shows that the federally-funded Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) funneled $27,580,113 into MHz Networks and its affiliates in fiscal year 2011. MHz Networks is a division of Commonwealth Public Broadcasting, based in Richmond, Virginia, and distributes Al-Jazeera, the voice of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Moscow-funded Russia Today (RT) channel, and CCTV, under the rubric of “Programming for globally-minded people.” MHz Worldview calls itself “alternative programming for U.S. public TV stations and other distributors.”
Split Estate - Really?

Program: Split Estate (2 comments)
Your series is riddle with half truths and misleading commentary, including that by the fundraisers (using a 12 year old........really?) I noticed the careful wording by your film makers accomplices by saying that the water taken from a fracked well was full of toxins and cancer causing chemicals, then comparing them from Oil and Gas experts who said that the chemicals were nothing more that detergents used to dissolve clay soils (which is true) and that you could drink the solution. The continuous play on this is ridiculous and your fund raising deserves better and more truthful topics to raise funds for your publicly sponsored and taxpayer supported station. Please stop advancing this administrations agenda and use more creditable sources. No professor from School of Mines or equally trained petroleum engineer was not included in your fundraising panel but just the same old wore out hippies that continually man your phones advancing their tiresome agendas.

False Equivalency
Posted: February 23, 2014 by Pam Pearce
Program: FrackNation (7 comments)
Okay, it's great to know what people think, but that doesn't make their opinions true. If I wanted to see people on TV express their opinions, I'd go to Fox, CNN, MSNBC. I can see pro-fracking opinions (and lies) on any network supported by big oil (PBS) or owned by a multinational (Fox, CNN, MSNBC). They make everything out to be equal: one side is the same as another. NO, no no! I want scientific evidence backing up claims. Of course, a lot of people support fracking because it's their bread and butter, and I understand that in this desperate economy. However, no matter what opinions people hold, I don't want America's children drinking water with fracking chemicals in them, and I don't want man-made earthquakes caused by fracking. I believe that, perhaps, fracking has been experienced differently in different parts of the country, which may be a factor in people who take either side. But, what's the scientific truth? And what are the sources on both sides because we know that people and even scientists can be bought off. I'm disappointed in you, KBDI, because your assertion of equivalency between the two sides is FALSE. I've grown up with the expectation that out of all the PBS stations, Channel 12 would offer me alternative views approximating the truth, but you've turned to the mediocrity of the big networks, which are no longer respected because of their obfuscations and equivocating. I hope you get the big money you're trying to get from this presentation, but you certainly won't get my "small" money or support. I might as well send a check to CNN.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email and feedback.
 
I want you to know, Colorado Public Television did also air the film Split Estate (a less favorable film on the consequences of fracking).
 
Fracking is a very controversial and complicated issue in our region. CPT12 hoped to present our viewers with different sides of this issue.
 
Your feedback will help us with programming decisions in the future.

This is an excellent program. Families with intelligent girls should sit down and watch together - it's so encouraging to see these women who are founders of successful businesses or successful academicians or both - even though they started their careers at a time when few women were employed in chemistry-related careers. Five stars!

Program: FrackNation (7 comments)
I'd like to submit this letter regarding your upcoming showing of Fracknation directly to you, as well as posting it in your comment section. Fracknation is not an "independent" film. It is an Industry hit job created to paint harmed families and frauds. Thank you so much for your time in reviewing these comments: Josh Fox made the film Gas;land to tell the stories of families effected by nearby Horizontal, Hydro-fractured gas drilling (Fracking). It's gripping because it draws you into how families cope with contamination from nearby Fracking and what effects these families face are uniform across the nation. The film Fracknation was made to frame Gasland as a lie and the harmed families as frauds. And it has done that quite well. First the Industry made it's own film debunking Gasland - called Truthland. It was 100% Industry funded and backed and also painted Gasland, Josh Fox and victims as frauds. The Irony there was the star of the film, Shelly Depue .. has a leaking water well and likely did when she took the Truthland film on tour: http://www.marcellus-shale.us/Depue-Truthland.htm The Industry myth that the film Truthland and Fracknation are founded on .. that methane has always been in the water, thus Fox and all victims are just pulling some sort of trick, as they obviously know their wells where always contaminated .. has been thoroughly debunked by Professor Anthony Ingraffea. Please review his debunking of the "wells don't leak" and "there was always methane in our water" myths: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oPqlAAR94U When Phelim Mcaleer went to Dimock, he lied to harmed families to get an interview. He told people he was making a "ban fracking" film in Ireland.. .. and then cut only the film he could use .. in a campaign to paint victims are frauds: "In an interview with DeSmogBlog, Sautner said McAleer approached him under misleading pretenses, claiming to be an anti-fracking filmmaker hoping to help out in Ireland's fracking fight. "I was hesitant at first to do the interview, but he begged us and we said 'okay.' Everything he ended up using in the video he took out of context. He had it all set up from the beginning of what he wanted to show and he wasn't going to show the truth," Sautner told DeSmogBlog. Victoria Switzer, another Dimock victim of Cabot interviewed for "FrackNation" who spent four hours speaking with McAleer in her house (her interview did not appear in the film), also expressed similar sentiments to DeSmogBlog. He called he assured me he was doing an unbiased documentary both sides of the issues. I think it is significant because it goes to his lying, his manipulation of the truth, and misrepresentation of his agenda. I never would have let him in my home if I knew what his agenda was. Later when I saw some of his other work I was sickened that this man sat at the table my husband built in the home that is now threatened by the industry he serves." http://www.desmogblog.com/2013/05/28/fracknation-part-two-koch-industries-ties-bind This is why Mrs. Sautner appears so upset in the film, she has been lied to by the Fracknation crew and knows they will use the footage they took to paint her and her husband as liars. The film uses the scene of confrontation with Mrs Sautner as proof she is unstable, she is simply upset about being lied to .. as any of us would be. I am also researching a documentary and have spoken to victims who corroborate theat familes where lied to by Phelim. I advise Colorado PBS to review the information in Desmog's two part series before you consider misinforming the public in service to an Industry that harms people, then wages a smear campaigns against them. The Kickstarter funding is also suspect: "The film, however, is being partially funded through donations on the Kickstarter website, and the roster of "executive producers" who have donated at least $1 includes scores of energy industry associates. The filmmakers said Thursday they plan to return any donations given by "senior" workers in the industry, which they define as executives." http://www.post-gazette.com/businessnews/2012/03/04/Industry-gets-cast-in-FrackNation-the-latest-documentary-on-the-drilling-debate/stories/201203040252#ixzz2UXz8XwXz While Natural Gas and Fracking may provide a short bridge to our fossil free, sustainable future .. maybe 20 years - not the 100 years Industry is pushing for - Industry must stop their campaign to demonize families who have been harmed and paint them as frauds .. which is the only purpose of this film. It's very hard to prove that Industry's nearby frack job contaminated your water ... even if your water was clear for decades before and the contamination happened when fracking happened. Industry will fight, deny, lie, hide and litigate their way out of addressing contamination - of air, water or soil. America will not tolerate Industry treating people in this manner. While Phelim is in Europe, telling Europe that the US EPA has not found one case of water contamination from fracking in the 60 years we have been drilling here .... families ARE suffering contamination AND demonization. Is this what PBS wants to promote? Thank you for your time, Josh Fox made the film Gas;land to tell the stories of families effected by nearby Horizontal, Hydro-fractured gas drilling (Fracking).

Program: Preparing for Disaster: Starting Now (1 comment)
This one hour documentary has a ton of GREAT information on how to prepare in advance for a disaster. After experiencing the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs, and having to gather important things at the last moment, and after experiencing 8 feet of flash flooding right next to our house on Fountain Creek last August, it really sucks not to be prepared in advance. It is a heart attack moment when you have to leave immediately, and you do not know where your documents are, you are not prepared to take your animals, you can't find your photos, toiletries, flash lights, blankets, etc!!! I highly recommend airing this over and over again, as the fire and flood season will be upon us again soon here in Colorado! Thanks!

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (7 comments)
I have a deep love and respect for dogs and their wild cousins (wolves, coyotes, etc.) I have rescued several dogs over the years and volunteered at wolf sanctuaries. Their happiness and well being is of the utmost importance to me. My latest dog, adopted from the Boulder Humane Society, was the most extremely out-of-control dog I've ever encountered. He had every bad habit in the book, from chewing and tugging on leashes, to shredding furniture when left alone, to jumping fences and running off. Training techniques that had worked on my other dogs did not work at all on him. I was getting near wit's end and contemplating the unthinkable (giving up and returning him to the shelter). Watching this show was a huge turning point in our relationship. While it is true that many dogs do not need the kinds of training techniques outlined in this show, some dogs do. Within a few days of watching this show and consistently applying its techniques, my dog went from a hyper-active anxious troublemaker to a calm peaceful companion who I can take to the office, introduce to other dogs, and take running and walking regularly with no distress. I have no doubt that he is far happier now than he was before, and it only took a few days to get here. When I decided to make a donation to cpt12 inspired by this show, I was appalled by the horribly negative comments. The positive change that this show made for me and my dog was tremendous. I wish people would be more open minded and less judgmental. These techniques may not be appropriate for every dog or every situation, but they definitely work wonders in some cases.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email, financial support and feedback on this dog training technique.
I am glad you found the program useful and that you were able to give your dog the forever home he needed.

I just watched a movie called THE INVISIBLE WAR which I discovered at my local public library. I feel it should be broadcast locally. I've requested movies to be played before and you did it. Thank you by the way. This movie is a winner of the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL. The topic cannot be ignored and will not go away without everyone becoming aware of the problem. ISBN 1-4229-2200-6 AS a US NAVY veteran I know how much of a problem the chain-of-command military is a "good ol' boy" platform which promotes the ages old 'boys will be boys' problem. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for the programming suggestion.  In my research I found that this was part of the Independent Lens programs and is episode 2013*1416.  We actually have aired this 5 times most recently on Febraury 9th.  So we must be psychic!  Program rights can be very complex so it is hard to say when we can air it again but the best thing is to check our website’s ‘Schedule’ tab and look for Independent Lens.
 
We welcome your programming suggestions so if you see other interesting programs please feel free to drop us a line.
 
All the best,

Myth and narrative
Posted: February 10, 2014 by gary witherspoon
Greetings Colorado Public Television: John Kennedy stated 52 years ago: "Though we are opposed around the world by monolithic and ruthless conspiracy it relies primarily by covert means for expanding a sphere of influence. On infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of election, on intimidation instead of free choice, guerillas by night and cover instead of armies by day. It is a system that has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit highly efficient machine combining military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed not published, its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret revealed. " End quote. This paragraph above has not become passe'. It has been surpassed. The myth and narrative of the last 13 years is in flux. Your interest in what really happened September 11, 2001 is evident. The conclusive evidence of a new energy technology can be traced to the event of 9/11/2001. The question begs asking; Why has the research and development of military weapons using directed energy, electromagnetic longitudinal waves, scalar waves, micro-wave technology, otherwise known as Star Wars Defense Initiative been used for weapons technology and not for peaceful energy endeavors? Ask your Congressman sitting on Energy, Space, Technology, Commerce committees what they know of "directed energy" When they play dumb they are and when they intend to deceive they are as well. Thanks for your time, Gary Witherspoon

love the mystery series

Program: Marie's Mind for Murder (5 comments)
I wanted to take a moment to let you know that I continue to enjoy the mystery series. For a while now, this was a must see every Sat. night. I have now expanded to both Friday and Sat. night viewings. With a profession and family, this is quite a commitment, but I have enjoyed a peak into the life of others in distant lands. Each new series shows something new. At first, I was disappointed when a series ended, but after giving each new one a chance, I have found each to offer something new and unique. This series has even furthered my desire to experience life in a new land. And since I can now what on line, I can take MHZ wherever I may go. Thanks for provided interesting programs.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  The International Mysteries seems to be among the many liked programs.  We are glad you enjoyed Marie’s Mind for Murder

Commerce City, Summer of 2013: Adams County Social Services said a client, Kelly Peppard Threatened them, when in fact she threatened suicide due to a medical condition she could not get assistance to treat. When she left they posted a warning saying she threatened them with a gun and posted her face in their security booth. Later her Daughter Stephanie Rose Peppard went in to get assistance for medical care and food and she saw the posting. She notified her mother Kelly Peppard who contacted the department to clear up the issue stating she was threatening herself not them. They later reported to Stephanie Peppard that she was not allowed to come into the building because she told Kelly Peppard that the notice was posted. Currently Stephanie was applying to TANF for an infant born 10/22/13 and go through a program offered by the State of Colorado to become a police officer, however now she cannot do that because despite submitting a legal birth certificate Human Services is stating Stephanie does not have a child.

Thank You for airing this show! It is terrific! It's a modern version of The Grand Ole Opry, representing all versions of Americana music. Most people do not know that they are missing Something Important on the American music scene! It definitely should be on a "Must See" List, and appropriately featured.

Gift of Life (aired February 4, 2014 @ 8:00 PM
Posted: February 5, 2014 by Harold Murphy
I saw the "Gift of Life" last night, and considered it a SUPER + hour of my Television last night. I learned a great deal. My son was an Organ Donor last year; you can see his inspiring story done by Tammy Vigil, Channel 31 (Fox T V) "Gift of Sight" about Fallen Firefighter Jason Murphy If you should want to receive a copy of the letter I received from the Recipient (only first name shown), I would be happy to mail it to your office. I am sad about the loss of my son Jason, but at the same time, I am happy that Jason helped a stranger (Rich) with his "Gift of Sight." While it is normally difficult to learn who the Recipient is, based upon the great amount & excellent work done by Tammy, both Rich and myself have permission to make direct contact with each other. My next goal is to have my son Firefighter (Aurora Firefighter) Jason Murphy honored at the next Colorado Fallen Firefighter Memorial May 10, 2014 (I believe), and to invite Rich & his family to attend for a "reunion" of our "extended family." This could make another very positive story about the Organ Donor Program. Sincerely, Harold Murphy

Disappointed
Posted: February 2, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Marie's Mind for Murder (5 comments)
Admittedly, I’ve become hooked on CH12’s European crime dramas over the past few months. Initially watching them was only for curiosity’s sake, I found myself quickly becoming addicted. Two of my favorites have been “Arne Dahl” (apparently replaced this week by “Marie's Mind for Murder “) and “The Inspector and the Sea” (although the other European crime dramas are also quite good, especially compared with series being served up by American producers in the same genre.) While I was a bit sad to see Arne Dahl being replaced by Marie’s Mind for Murder in the 7:00 p.m. Saturday time slot, I realize all good things must eventually come to an end (as only so many episodes of each series are released to PBS). Based on the quality of previous series, I was more than willing to give “Marie’s Mind” a try. (By “Quality”, I mean interesting and diverse character development, intriguing story lines, and a certain undefinable quirkiness to both the characters and the stories.) This is where “Marie’s Mind for Murder” fell flat (in my humble… but some say lovable opinion.) To begin, the character of Marie frankly just seemed dull. Further she seemed to lack any likeability whatsoever. Even the most dastardly of characters needs a bit of likeability thrown in at some level, so certainly the protagonist should be likeable at some level. I would go so far to say her character is as irritating as that annoying co-worker you dread seeing the first thing every morning in the office. Further, her relationship with her antagonist “Jürgen Simmel” just didn’t work. Yes, we all know the cliché relationship many crime dramas use between the main characters, that being the protagonist and the antagonist are polar opposites, yet eventually develop a mutual respect for each other and thus develop a team which draws from their mutual strengths. The reason for this failure was that the antagonist “Jürgen Simmel” was only slightly more irritating than Marie herself. Lastly, the story line was much more predictable than other European crime dramas. This predictability only added to an already dull storyline. So much of the story seemed to be only “filler”. In short, there was no more than one hour’s worth of material (at best) to fill almost two hours of show. How dull was it? I simply could not make it entirely through the episode. To my best estimate (because the episode does not fill the entire two hour time slot), I made it about three-quarters of the way through the show. While I generally will finish watching what I perceive to be even a poorly created story, at about the three-quarter mark, I simply didn’t care anymore “who done it.” Not all series (not even European ones) can be winners. This one is definitely in the “Not all” category.

Thank you for your email and critique of the program Marie’s Mind for Murder.
I have forwarded your comments to the Programming Department at Megahertz Worldview who are responsible for choosing the programming on channel 12.3.
I too enjoy the International Mysteries - some more than others.

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (7 comments)
I must be old and barbaric, but I find nothing wrong with the methods used in this program. I watched the end of it, so perhaps one should watch the entire program before passing judgement and damaging a trainer's reputation. I also learned a great deal from the dog whisperer about training my rescue dog and turning her into a lovely, lovable dog. Hmmm . . . a bit of a dog worshipper are you????
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email and thank you for giving a rescue dog a forever home.
I have found that consistency is the key to training a dog, no matter what method you use.

Program: Taking the Long View: The Life of Shiing-shen Chern (1 comment)
"Friday, January 31 at 12:00 am" What does this mean? Can't you use clear unambiguous language? Will this program be available online?
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
“Friday, January 31 at 12:00AM” means 1 minute after Thursday, January 30th, 11:59PM.  
You are not the only one that has gotten confused by the 12:00AM phrasing, however  I am not sure there is a clearer way to state it.
I will forward your concerns to our Programming Department. Perhaps they can come up with a way to make the posted schedule more clear.
Taking the Long View: The Life of Shiing-shen Chern   is  available for streaming at http://vimeo.com/16185312.
I am sorry for the confusion.

public television or public access?

Program: Beads, Baubles, and Jewels (1 comment)
It is good to see you are airing Beads, Baubles, and Jewels again but you still have not corrected the misspelled 'next on' title screen you show two or three minutes before show time (Beads, Baubles, and Jewles)...this shows a lack of professionalism I am not used to seeing on public television. P.S. You should stop blowing off people who contact you in an attempt to volunteer to work at your station.
CPT12 Response:
We appreciate your feedback about our typo – you are correct that we should catch those things but apparently this one slipped through.  I have forwarded your message to operations for correction.
 
I have also forwarded your message to office management about your comment regarding volunteering.  We typically use volunteers most for pledge drives and auctions  which are relatively infrequent.  Thanks for your interest.
