Message to Our Members As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the beloved PBS children’s series Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, I am reminded that I was fortunate to have my very own “Mister Rogers” moment when he spoke at my college graduation. Fred Rogers sat down at the piano and played a song he had written just for us. Like children, we sat squirming, anxiously awaiting our freedom from school and the excitement of launching into the world. At the time, I’ll admit I wasn’t thrilled about having him as a speaker since I hadn’t grown up watching Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood – I loved to watch The Electric Company – and the previous year’s speaker had been a well-known comedian. But that day, I was transfixed by this simple, plain-spoken man playing the piano and singing to us. As I sat there alone in a sea of thousands of college graduates, somehow Mister Rogers made me feel that he was talking only to me and that I was special. He told me (ok, all of us) I was destined for a fantastic journey in life, and he was right since most of my career has been spent in public media! From the moment he first changed into his cardigan and sneakers 50 years ago, Fred Rogers has created a calm, safe place for children to learn about themselves, others and the world around them. His groundbreaking program still airs on NET, exploring childhood

2

through real life and puppet stories from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. NET and PBS KIDS lead the way in learning with more than 230 hours to watch each week on NET and our fourth channel NET PBS KIDS. All of NET’s channels – NET, NET World, NET Create and NET PBS KIDS – are free over-the-air with a simple antenna. And simple is just the way Fred Rogers wanted things to be. I’ve heard so many stories from people across the state who have been touched by something they heard or watched on one of NET’s channels or saw online. Your steadfast dedication helps provide these moments to all Nebraskans – and we are all lucky to benefit from your generosity. Share your story by sending me an email at dhamlett@netNebraska.org. Thank you!

Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sundays at 9:30 a.m. CT on NET

When Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood debuted in 1968, the series created a trusted foundation for children’s programming, and today, children, families and professionals are still inspired by his timeless wisdom. With lessons to build literacy, math and social-emotional skills, dozens of PBS KIDS programs on NET, online and on mobile platforms prepare our children to meet the challenges of tomorrow. The PBS KIDS series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood was inspired by Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Four-year-old Daniel Tiger, son of the original program’s Daniel Striped Tiger, puts on his red sweater, ties his shoes and invites a new generation of preschoolers into the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

PBS KIDS is pairing episodes of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood with the episodes of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood that inspired them. Feb. 26 – March 2 9:30 & 10 a.m. CT on NET 

Encouraging children to explore music, dance and creativity!

Premieres Monday, Feb. 12 9 p.m. CT on NET With more time and financial resources, experts say Baby Boomers are more at-risk to become caught in the grip of out-of-control gambling. In the Midwest, there are both state and tribal run casinos, also lottery, keno and sports betting are easily accessible. Seniors often gamble as a social activity, and when the wagering becomes a problem, recouping financial losses can be difficult, if not impossible. NET’s original documentary focuses on the growth of problem gambling for Baby Boomers. It features personal stories from those who’ve suffered emotional and financial consequences, as well as guidance from leading experts in crisis intervention and the treatment of gambling addictions in older adults.

Omaha Teacher Is Digital Innovator In today’s classrooms, computers and smartboards replace erasers and chalkboards. Oakdale Elementary teacher Allison Pontious and her second-grade students Allison Pontious embrace learning on iPad technology provided by Omaha’s Westside Community Schools. “The kids know that it’s not a toy, that it’s a tool, and we use it specifically for different sections in math, reading and writing,” said Pontious. She uses a computer app to control information on all the iPads and ensure her students stay on task. Pontious is the eMerge technology member for her school and was named a PBS Digital Innovator for Nebraska in 2017. The professional development program recognizes Pre-K–12 educators whose innovative use of technology and media create exciting learning experiences for their students. Pontious uses technology to personalize learning in her classroom and give each student the freedom to learn in the way that is most beneficial for them. “If I want to send them to one of the videos on PBS LearningMedia, I just have the website on mine and I click it. It’s at their fingertips, right in that second.” She trusts PBS materials and searches for them to save time and energy, as well as keep her students safe from inappropriate material. “It’s safe and factual and fun, and the kids like it” she said. As a PBS Digital Innovator, Pontious is now able to network and share ideas with teachers from around the country who share her passion for digital learning in the classroom. She’s also written grants that will fund a series of technology nights at Oakdale Elementary. NET’s education team will provide hands-on learning and PBS resources to connect teachers, students and parents as they collaborate to solve fun mysteries and puzzles. Pontious hopes the events will inspire her students to explore potential careers in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) fields.

Dianne Cook

Name NET as IRA Beneficiary Dianne Cook of Fremont loves to quilt and was making satin and applique angels and tree skirts from a friend’s wedding gown when we spoke before Christmas. “I like to stay busy,” Dianne said about taking on challenging quilting projects, including making banners for churches. She is the secretary for St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Fremont. It’s no surprise that she enjoys watching quilting shows on NET as well as many of the British dramas like Downton Abbey, Doc Martin and As Time Goes By. “I’ve supported NET since 1967. My children watched Sesame Street and a program about reading in a tree house when they were young that we all loved,” Dianne said. “I feel I should pay my way,” she explained about her long-time support of NET. “At first I would give annually, but now I give monthly.” Like Dianne, members who contribute monthly become NET Sustaining Stars and receive all the benefits of NET membership, while enjoying the convenience and simplicity of automatic renewal. Dianne is also a member of NET’s Friends of the Future Society because she named NET as a beneficiary of her individual retirement account. Friends of the Future receive special recognition from NET for their commitment to ensuring that quality programs for Nebraskans will be produced after their lifetime.

A Tax-Saving Way to Help NET Would you like to see your philanthropic dollars at work, and jump-start your planned giving legacy to NET while you can still reap the benefits? If you are 70½ years old or older, there is a simple way to support NET’s mission and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to NET – without having to pay income taxes on the money. Why Consider A Gift from Your IRA? The gift will be put to use today, allowing you to see the difference your donation is making. You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions. If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution for 2018, your IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement. For more information, visit netNebraska.org/giftplanning or contact NET. John Knape, Director of Major & Planned Giving 402-470-6351 • jknape@netNebraska.org
