Head On Denver Park's Policies Denver Park's PoliciesSusan: Denver mayor Hancock's Park's policies defy history and common sense. Hizzoner sells public open space without asking voter's permission; sites an over-scaled playground in historic City Park and is trying to ban 3.2 beer from Wash Park. He has a lot to learn, starting with the definition of PUBLIC!Krista: The proposal to ban 3.2 beer in Washington Park has many park visitors angry. They enjoy their beer responsibly and want to see rangers crack down on the disorderly, the drunk, and the indecent. The impulse to enact new restrictions rather than enforce existing laws is all too common among lawmakers.Susan: Taxpayers gave Hancock an extra $65-million-a-year to expand city services. The campaign assured taxpayers that attention to parks was top of the list. It's time for Hizzoner to pay more attention to the public's priorities than racking up frequent flyer miles. Krista This isn't the first time you've criticized Denver Mayor Hancock's performance in office. Like I've said before, perhaps it's time for a Republican to fill that office. Other mid-sized cities, Indianapolis Albuquerque, Fresno, Miami, San Diego, and Virginia Beach, all have a Republican mayor. Denver should be next.

Turning the Tide Louisiana's coastal marshes and wetlands cover 9,000 square miles, stretching 300 miles from east to west, and reaching 30 miles inland. Each year, hurricanes and other natural and man-made forces claim between 20 to 25 square miles of vulnerable coastline. Many believe these numbers constitute a national emergency, one which requires immediate scientific and public consensus to "turn the tide" on the problem. In the balance lay crucial ecosystems, Gulf seafood and fisheries, North American migratory bird and waterfowl populations, the nation's energy infrastructure and national security, interior navigation and water transport for American produce and goods, and a unique American culture. The powerful documentary TURNING THE TIDE examines of viable strategies and innovative engineering techniques to help address Louisiana's coastal erosion crisis. The world's foremost authorities on the subject demystify the complex challenges facing Louisiana's coast and reveal new (and sometimes unconventional) discoveries with the potential to change the course of the coast's future.

Head On Supreme's & Campaign Finance Limits Supreme's & Campaign Finance LimitsKrista: The Supreme Court recently ruled that limits on the total amount of money individuals can give to candidates, political parties and political action committees are unconstitutional. Although the cap of $123,200 per election is gone, individual contributions for president or Congress, currently set at $2,600 per election, remains in force. Susan: I went to my bank last week and asked to visit my savings and checking accounts. Although I spent an hour talking to my cash - the bills were unmoved completely . . .mute! Money is not speech. The founding fathers did not envision a set-aside for rich donors. Krista: Just as freedom of the press is exercised through printing presses, cameras, and other things which cost money, so too is freedom of speech. It costs money to buy posters, ads, flyers, mailers, and commercials. We give money to candidates and causes to get the word out. It's our right.Susan: When corporations spend unlimited dollars buying influence - oops I mean bumper stickers - that's not free speech. Nor are anonymous 527 committees or unlimited individual contributions. Money isn't speech. Corporations aren't people. Today's corruption makes Dick Nixon and his bagman -Bebe Rebozo, look like choirboys!

Head On Hick On The Hot Seat Hick On The Hot SeatSusan: In the absence of a credible candidate to challenge Governor Hickenlooper this November, the R's are making all kinds of silly allegations. The Guv , an avowed centrist, is Teflon - even in a year that promises to be big for national Republicans. Krista: The ethics complaint against Hickenlooper is the least of his concerns. Polls show he is vulnerable. Coloradans haven't forgotten that he signed unpopular, extreme legislation. By contrast, Republican nominees for governor Kopp, Gessler, and Beauprez are exceptional leaders. The primary election will determine which one gets to win the governorship. Susan: The likely nominee, Tommy the Tank (credo) - is already on the ballot. His real competition is Beauprez and the 4-way June primary guarantees neither Gessler nor Mike (WHO??) Kopp will succeed. Yup The R's will form a circular firing squad and Hick will enjoy an easy re-elect.Krista: There was a lot of excitement for Kopp and Gessler at the Republican State Assembly. Having the support of a few thousand grassroots activists is a great way to start the primary season. Both men have a strong record of public service. One will send Hickenlooper back to the brewery.

Civil War: The Untold Story Bloody Shiloh With the 1860 election of anti-slavery candidate Abraham Lincoln, thirteen states from the South secede and form the Confederate States of America. Union military leaders, along with Lincoln himself, realize that ending the rebellion rests on controlling the Mississippi River. In February 1862, Union forces, led by an obscure general named Ulysses S. Grant, establish a foothold in southern Tennessee near a simple log structure known as "Shiloh Church." On April 6, 1862, a Confederate force of over 40-thousand, led by General Albert Sidney Johnston, launch a surprise attack on Grant. The fighting in the hellish terrain surrounding Shiloh is some of the most brutal of the entire war. By day's end, victory is in sight for the attacking Confederates. But Johnston has been struck in the leg by a bullet, and bleeds to death in 20 minutes. The death of Johnston is a harbinger of a great change that will soon sweep over "Bloody Shiloh."

Civil War: The Untold Story A Beacon of Hope In the disaster at Shiloh, Union General Ulysses S. Grant sees victory. On the night of April 6, 1862, Grant's beleaguered army along the Tennessee River is reinforced. The next morning, Grant's counterattack leads to victory. The defeated Confederate force of 40-thousand retreats south to Corinth, Mississippi. At Shiloh, the Confederates lose arguably their best opportunity to change the outcome of the war. The shocking combined casualties of 24-thousand men is more than in all the wars fought to that date in the United States. Many of the nearly 4 million slaves across the South see the war as an opportunity to seize their own destiny. Thousands of escaping slaves, dubbed 'contrabands', seek refuge with Union forces advancing into the South. At Corinth, Mississippi, the Union army sets up a 'contraband camp.' The former slaves begin building a community that includes a school, hospital, and church. As thousands of slaves flee northward, the question asked all over America is this: are they still slaves or are they now free? In a cottage overlooking Washington DC, Abraham Lincoln begins drafting a "proclamation" whose message will boldly answer that question.

Civil War: The Untold Story River of Death Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation does not only free slaves in the rebelling states. It changes the war from one of reunification, to one of ending slavery. The Emancipation Proclamation also gives African Americans freedom to fight. By war's end, some 200,000 will enlist. In truth, Lincoln's proclamation is an empty promise without the power of the United States Army to enforce it. In 1863, Ulysses S. Grant begins a campaign to take Vicksburg, Mississippi, a Confederate citadel overlooking a strategic section of the lower Mississippi River. In May, Grant begins laying siege to the city of 4500. Mary Loughborough is one of the many terrified civilians who have dug caves into the hillsides for protection. Clutching her 2-year old daughter, Mary "endeavored by constant prayer to prepare myself for the sudden death I was almost certain awaited me." On July 4, 1863 - the day after Pickett's disastrous charge at Gettysburg - the Confederates surrender Vicksburg to Grant. With the Mississippi River now under Union control, the campaign moves eastward to Chattanooga, Tennessee, a rail center that Lincoln considers to be as important as the Confederate capital of Richmond. Eight miles south, along the Chickamauga - a creek the Cherokee call "the river of death" - Union and Confederate forces clash in what will become the biggest battle of the Western Theater.

Civil War: The Untold Story Death Knell of the Confederacy September 19, 1863. The first day of the Battle of Chickamauga ends in a bloody draw. On the next day, the battle is determined by one of the biggest blunders of the Civil War. Miscommunication, confusion, and fatigue with Union General William Rosecrans and his generals have left a gap in the Union line more than a quarter mile wide. James Longstreet's force of 11,000 from the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, pour through the gap and split the Union army in two. Rosecrans and his beaten army escape to Chattanooga. Chickamauga's combined casualties of 34,000 are only topped by the carnage at Gettysburg. In October, Rosecrans is replaced by U.S. Grant, who immediately plans an offensive. In November 1863, Grant routes the Confederate stronghold just outside Chattanooga. As they escape southward into Georgia, a Confederate officer calls the devastating defeat: "the death knell of the Confederacy."

Civil War: The Untold Story With Malice Toward None In the spring of 1864, General William Tecumseh Sherman's force of 100-thousand men marches from Chattanooga toward Atlanta, Georgia, the industrial hub of the Deep South. Twenty miles north of Atlanta, Sherman's army is soundly defeated at Kennesaw Mountain. Sherman's defeat combined with Grant's stalemate in Virginia, enrages a Northern electorate already weary of war. The presidential election is in November, and Abraham Lincoln's chances for a second term are dwindling by the day. The Democrats nominate George McClellan. The party's platform calls for a negotiated peace with the Confederacy in which slaveholders will be allowed to keep their property. If McClellan is elected, Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation will almost certainly be struck down. Though victorious at Kennesaw Mountain, the outnumbered Confederate Army falls back to a defensive position at Atlanta. After 6 weeks of bloody conflicts around Atlanta, Sherman wires Washington: "Atlanta is ours and fairly won." For the first time in the war, many in the North now believe victory can be achieved. Eight weeks later, the president defeats McClellan in a landslide. After the election, Sherman begins his March to the Sea. The largely unopposed march across Georgia to Savannah is a psychological blow to the Confederacy, and a stunning conclusion to the Western Theater.

Although the cap of $123,200 per election is gone, individual contributions for president or Congress, currently set at $2,600 per election, remains in force. Susan: I went to my bank last week and asked to visit my savings and checking accounts. Although I spent an hour talking to my cash - the bills were unmoved completely . . .mute! Money is not speech. The founding fathers did not envision a set-aside for rich donors. Krista: Just as freedom of the press is exercised through printing presses, cameras, and other things which cost money, so too is freedom of speech. It costs money to buy posters, ads, flyers, mailers, and commercials. We give money to candidates and causes to get the word out. It's our right.Susan: When corporations spend unlimited dollars buying influence - oops I mean bumper stickers - that's not free speech.

The film traces a formative period in Ali's life, one unknown to young people and neglected by those who remember him as a boxer but overlook how controversial he was when he first took center stage. Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali and found himself in the crosshairs of conflicts concerning civil rights, religion and wartime dissent. This film zeroes in on the years 1967 to 1970, when Ali lived in exile within the U.S., stripped of his heavyweight belt and banned from boxing, sacrificing fame and fortune on principle.

Head On Hick On The Hot Seat Hick On The Hot SeatSusan: In the absence of a credible candidate to challenge Governor Hickenlooper this November, the R's are making all kinds of silly allegations. The Guv , an avowed centrist, is Teflon - even in a year that promises to be big for national Republicans. Krista: The ethics complaint against Hickenlooper is the least of his concerns. Polls show he is vulnerable. Coloradans haven't forgotten that he signed unpopular, extreme legislation. By contrast, Republican nominees for governor Kopp, Gessler, and Beauprez are exceptional leaders. The primary election will determine which one gets to win the governorship. Susan: The likely nominee, Tommy the Tank (credo) - is already on the ballot. His real competition is Beauprez and the 4-way June primary guarantees neither Gessler nor Mike (WHO??) Kopp will succeed. Yup The R's will form a circular firing squad and Hick will enjoy an easy re-elect.Krista: There was a lot of excitement for Kopp and Gessler at the Republican State Assembly. Having the support of a few thousand grassroots activists is a great way to start the primary season. Both men have a strong record of public service. One will send Hickenlooper back to the brewery.

Head On Paycheck Fairness Paycheck FairnessSusan: Three strikes and the Republicans are out - again. Unbelievable in the 21st Century your party continues to insist that it's fine for women not to earn equal pay for equal work. Krista, as a single, working woman, surely you disagree with this policy?Krista: It's already illegal to pay women less under the Equal Pay Act of 1963. If Republicans paid women less they'd be knee-deep in lawsuits and no woman would work for them. The Senate bill is nothing more than an election year ploy to gain votes by portraying women as victims. Susan: Nonsense. Who is their right mind would block enforcement tools for the toothless, 50-year-old Act? Women deserve the right to compare salaries and seek damages- without employer retaliation - requiring companies to explain disparities. The Pay Fairness Act makes Equal pay for equal work, enforceable. It's that simple!Krista: When choices regarding occupations, college majors, and time in the job are taken into account there is virtually no gap according to a recent government study. There are exceptions. Senator Udall pays his female employees less his male employees while Representatives Gardner and Coffman pay women more than men.

It lends scientific perspective to a question often raised in light of recent news coverage of major earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and extreme weather: Is Earth undergoing a period of increased geological upheaval? Three years in the making and shot on every continent, the film includes spectacular footage of the world's geologic hot spots from Mongolia to Antarctica; state-of-the-art 3D graphics; and interviews with leading earth scientists.

Head On Traffic Cameras Traffic CamerasKrista: Red light and speed cameras nab drivers across Colorado. Last year, Denver alone handed out some 223,000 red-light and speeding photo tickets. The tickets generated $18 million in revenue. Some state lawmakers want to make them illegal. 12 states have banned speed cameras and 9 states red light cameras. Susan: The cameras could be effective tools, advancing pedestrian and bike safety. Unfortunately Denver's cameras are just gotcha revenue producers. With fewer than a dozen cameras citywide, placed according to traffic counts not pedestrian deaths - the leg is on the right track.Krista: Research shows people are more likely comply with traffic lights and speed limits when cameras are present. They also produce city revenue. Win-win for the city. Yet, having just returned from the most surveilled country in the world, England, I believe we need to think about privacy and public camera use. Susan: Anyone, anywhere with a cell phone or who uses a search engine like Google or does any on-line transaction, is under surveillance. Big retail, big government, any information aggregator knows everything there is to know about each and everyone of us. Privacy? Live under a rock.

Allen True's West Destined to become Colorado's foremost muralist, Allen Tupper True (1881 - 1955) set out as a youthful illustrator of magazines and books. His illustrations - like his sun-drenched paintings of Taos and Santa Fe - forged a vision of the American West that was at once romantic and realistic. True went on to paint grand murals for Denver's Telephone Building and the state capitols of Colorado, Missouri, and Wyoming. He designed the Wyoming license plate's emblematic bucking horse and rider, and he adorned the floors of Hoover Dam with American Indian-inspired patterns. ALLEN TRUE'S WEST, a KBDI-12 original production, showcases the life and art of this twentieth-century American original, who captured the character of a region in transformation - from wild frontier to modern West.

Head On Denver Park's Policies Denver Park's PoliciesSusan: Denver mayor Hancock's Park's policies defy history and common sense. Hizzoner sells public open space without asking voter's permission; sites an over-scaled playground in historic City Park and is trying to ban 3.2 beer from Wash Park. He has a lot to learn, starting with the definition of PUBLIC!Krista: The proposal to ban 3.2 beer in Washington Park has many park visitors angry. They enjoy their beer responsibly and want to see rangers crack down on the disorderly, the drunk, and the indecent. The impulse to enact new restrictions rather than enforce existing laws is all too common among lawmakers.Susan: Taxpayers gave Hancock an extra $65-million-a-year to expand city services. The campaign assured taxpayers that attention to parks was top of the list. It's time for Hizzoner to pay more attention to the public's priorities than racking up frequent flyer miles. Krista This isn't the first time you've criticized Denver Mayor Hancock's performance in office. Like I've said before, perhaps it's time for a Republican to fill that office. Other mid-sized cities, Indianapolis Albuquerque, Fresno, Miami, San Diego, and Virginia Beach, all have a Republican mayor. Denver should be next.

Under the spiritual influence of the "Singing River," as Native Americans called it, the music of Muscle Shoals has helped create some of the most important and resonant songs of all time. At its heart is Rick Hall, who founded FAME Studios. Overcoming crushing poverty and staggering tragedies, Hall brought black and white together in Alabama's cauldron of racial hostility to create music for the generations. He is responsible for creating the "Muscle Shoals sound" and the Swampers, the house band at FAME that eventually left to start its own successful studio, Muscle Shoals Sound. In this joyful film, Greg Allman, Bono, Clarence Carter, Mick Jagger, Etta James, Alicia Keys, Keith Richards, Percy Sledge and others bear witness to Muscle Shoals' magnetism and mystery, and why it remains influential today.This program will air with the short film "Waiting For A Train: The Toshio Hirano Story"

Polls show he is vulnerable. Coloradans haven't forgotten that he signed unpopular, extreme legislation. By contrast, Republican nominees for governor Kopp, Gessler, and Beauprez are exceptional leaders. The primary election will determine which one gets to win the governorship. Susan: The likely nominee, Tommy the Tank (credo) - is already on the ballot. His real competition is Beauprez and the 4-way June primary guarantees neither Gessler nor Mike (WHO??) Kopp will succeed. Yup The R's will form a circular firing squad and Hick will enjoy an easy re-elect.Krista: There was a lot of excitement for Kopp and Gessler at the Republican State Assembly. Having the support of a few thousand grassroots activists is a great way to start the primary season. Both men have a strong record of public service. One will send Hickenlooper back to the brewery.

Head On Paycheck Fairness Paycheck FairnessSusan: Three strikes and the Republicans are out - again. Unbelievable in the 21st Century your party continues to insist that it's fine for women not to earn equal pay for equal work. Krista, as a single, working woman, surely you disagree with this policy?Krista: It's already illegal to pay women less under the Equal Pay Act of 1963. If Republicans paid women less they'd be knee-deep in lawsuits and no woman would work for them. The Senate bill is nothing more than an election year ploy to gain votes by portraying women as victims. Susan: Nonsense. Who is their right mind would block enforcement tools for the toothless, 50-year-old Act? Women deserve the right to compare salaries and seek damages- without employer retaliation - requiring companies to explain disparities. The Pay Fairness Act makes Equal pay for equal work, enforceable. It's that simple!Krista: When choices regarding occupations, college majors, and time in the job are taken into account there is virtually no gap according to a recent government study. There are exceptions. Senator Udall pays his female employees less his male employees while Representatives Gardner and Coffman pay women more than men.

Head On Traffic Cameras Traffic CamerasKrista: Red light and speed cameras nab drivers across Colorado. Last year, Denver alone handed out some 223,000 red-light and speeding photo tickets. The tickets generated $18 million in revenue. Some state lawmakers want to make them illegal. 12 states have banned speed cameras and 9 states red light cameras. Susan: The cameras could be effective tools, advancing pedestrian and bike safety. Unfortunately Denver's cameras are just gotcha revenue producers. With fewer than a dozen cameras citywide, placed according to traffic counts not pedestrian deaths - the leg is on the right track.Krista: Research shows people are more likely comply with traffic lights and speed limits when cameras are present. They also produce city revenue. Win-win for the city. Yet, having just returned from the most surveilled country in the world, England, I believe we need to think about privacy and public camera use. Susan: Anyone, anywhere with a cell phone or who uses a search engine like Google or does any on-line transaction, is under surveillance. Big retail, big government, any information aggregator knows everything there is to know about each and everyone of us. Privacy? Live under a rock.

Head On Denver Park's Policies Denver Park's PoliciesSusan: Denver mayor Hancock's Park's policies defy history and common sense. Hizzoner sells public open space without asking voter's permission; sites an over-scaled playground in historic City Park and is trying to ban 3.2 beer from Wash Park. He has a lot to learn, starting with the definition of PUBLIC!Krista: The proposal to ban 3.2 beer in Washington Park has many park visitors angry. They enjoy their beer responsibly and want to see rangers crack down on the disorderly, the drunk, and the indecent. The impulse to enact new restrictions rather than enforce existing laws is all too common among lawmakers.Susan: Taxpayers gave Hancock an extra $65-million-a-year to expand city services. The campaign assured taxpayers that attention to parks was top of the list. It's time for Hizzoner to pay more attention to the public's priorities than racking up frequent flyer miles. Krista This isn't the first time you've criticized Denver Mayor Hancock's performance in office. Like I've said before, perhaps it's time for a Republican to fill that office. Other mid-sized cities, Indianapolis Albuquerque, Fresno, Miami, San Diego, and Virginia Beach, all have a Republican mayor. Denver should be next.

Head On Supreme's & Campaign Finance Limits Supreme's & Campaign Finance LimitsKrista: The Supreme Court recently ruled that limits on the total amount of money individuals can give to candidates, political parties and political action committees are unconstitutional. Although the cap of $123,200 per election is gone, individual contributions for president or Congress, currently set at $2,600 per election, remains in force. Susan: I went to my bank last week and asked to visit my savings and checking accounts. Although I spent an hour talking to my cash - the bills were unmoved completely . . .mute! Money is not speech. The founding fathers did not envision a set-aside for rich donors. Krista: Just as freedom of the press is exercised through printing presses, cameras, and other things which cost money, so too is freedom of speech. It costs money to buy posters, ads, flyers, mailers, and commercials. We give money to candidates and causes to get the word out. It's our right.Susan: When corporations spend unlimited dollars buying influence - oops I mean bumper stickers - that's not free speech. Nor are anonymous 527 committees or unlimited individual contributions. Money isn't speech. Corporations aren't people. Today's corruption makes Dick Nixon and his bagman -Bebe Rebozo, look like choirboys!
