Grand Coulee Dam: American Experience Tuesday, April 3 at 8pm

Grand Coulee was more than a dam — it was a proclamation. In the wake of the Great Depression, America turned from private enterprise to public works — not simply to provide jobs, but to restore faith. The ultimate expression of Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, Grand Coulee played a central role in transforming the Northwest. After WWII, a vast irrigation project made possible by the dam helped turn the barren deserts of central Washington into rich farmland. But the dam prevented access to one of the greatest salmon rivers in the world. Deprived of the salmon — their most important resource — the native people who lived along the Columbia witnessed a profound cultural decline.

Goose Pond: The Story of a Wetland & Its Neighbors Sunday, April 22 at 2pm

Visit a wetland marsh in southwestern Indiana, the largest and one of the most successful wetland restorations of its kind in U.S. history. Early in Indiana’s history, the federal government began encouraging settlers to dredge, drain and tile Gosse Pond in an effort to make it suitable for farming. Because of the mucky soil and seasonal flooding, those efforts were only marginally successful. For years, attempts were made to restore the marsh to its original state as a refuge for the beautiful migratory birds that travel from the southern tip of South America to the Arctic.

April Taxes & Topics

  It’s April and there are two things one can’t ignore: taxes are due and the noise from the political campaign is becoming relentless. WTIU can offer two kinds of relief. Good, solid, news and information on the political candidates and a source of tax relief for those who planned wisely in 2011.   If filling out those pesky 1040 forms for 2011 gives you pause, consider planning a gift now to WTIU during 2012. You will be better prepared for a charitable deduction that may make your tax debt more palatable next year—and make you feel good for supporting your local public television station.

H= Denotes a program new to WTIU.

Keep WTIU in mind for a state tax credit too. Because WTIU is part of Indiana University, you can claim up to $200 of a $400 gift as a tax credit--if you file jointly, and $100 in credit on a $200 gift--if filing singly. That credit comes right off the top of what you may owe in state taxes. It is money back in your pocket. Look for Form CC40.   Of course, it is always wise to consult your financial advisor on such matters. To discuss ways of making a tax-advantaged gift to WTIU, feel free to contact Nancy Krueger at (812) 8552935 or nkrueger@indiana.edu. Additional information on other ways to make a gift can also be found at indianapublicmedia. org.support/tv.
