APRIL 2021 1


Message to Our Members Spring always makes me feel energized. The sun shines, birds chirp, flowers bloom and Backyard Farmer starts a fresh new season. In the year since the pandemic began, more people are cultivating fresh produce in their own green spaces, resulting in a crop of curious new gardeners looking for expert advice. We’ll have that and more every Thursday night beginning April 1. While we wait until it’s safe to resume in-person events, we’ve been hosting online screenings and events. Visit netNebraska.org/engage to see what’s coming up and watch past events on genetics and women who changed America, plus look for resources related to the PBS series The Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song. You’ll also find community conversations about films featured in the Indie Lens Pop-Up series. On Friday evening, April 16, our free Sesame Street in Communities Virtual Family Celebration will offer educational resources and activities that encourage reading, writing and resilience. You’ll hear from experts and kids will enjoy a surprise visit from Elmo! Visit netNebraska.org/SSIC from 6-7 p.m. CT to join us. Also in April, we’ll bring you more new episodes of Nebraska Stories and an American Masters special about Doc Severinsen, the master trumpeter who ruled the nighttime airwaves with Nebraska’s own Johnny Carson. And, our legislative news reporter Fred Knapp looks back at the career of another notable Nebraskan when he interviews Ernie Chambers, the longest serving legislator in Nebraska history. A year after COVID changed so many things, I’m hopeful this pandemic will soon be part of history and we can all be together again. We’ve learned a lot over the past year. One thing we’ve always known is just how valuable your dependable support is, especially during challenging times. As we all navigate our way back to “normal,” you can trust that our essential services will remain strong – thanks to you! With appreciation,

Hemingway

Monday, April 5 – Wednesday, April 7 7 p.m. CT on NET (Repeats at 9 p.m. CT on NET)

Filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick examine Ernest Hemingway’s visionary work and his turbulent life. As one of the greatest and most influential writers in America, he lived at the ultimately treacherous nexus of art, fame and celebrity.

2


Ernie Chambers has been challenging, inspiring and sometimes outraging Nebraskans for more than a half-century. First elected to the Legislature in 1970 by his North Omaha constituents, and forced out for the second time this year by term limits, he is the longest serving legislator in Nebraska history.

Sunday, April 18 at 6 p.m. CT Tuesday, April 27 at 10 p.m. CT  Both on NET 

In this new documentary, reporter Fred Knapp sits down with the state senator for a one-onone interview looking back at his life and career, from his years growing up in Omaha to his time at Creighton University and in the military. Chambers also discusses incidents of racism, as well as his involvement with the community and his legislative career. The wide-ranging interview covers topics such as Chambers’ efforts to secure more Black representation, his quest to abolish the death penalty, groundbreaking initiatives to pay college athletes and plans to divest from South Africa. As Knapp talks with him, Chambers reflects on his goals and tactics with intensity, humor and an occasional burst of song.

Though he is well known for interviews with presidents and Congressional leaders, NPR’s Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep has a passion for stories about the less famous: Pennsylvania truck drivers, Kentucky coal miners, U.S.-Mexico border detainees, Yemeni refugees, California firefighters and American soldiers.

INSKEEP

FINDS STORIES IN AMERICA AND AROUND THE WORLD LISTEN WEEKDAYS 4–9 a.m. News/Classical Radio Channel

Inskeep says Morning Edition works to slow down the news, making sense of fast-moving events. He has investigated Iraqi police in Baghdad, covered the Pentagon, the Senate and presidential elections. After the Sept. 11 attacks, he reported on wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and turmoil in Pakistan. He has taken listeners on a 2,428-mile journey along the U.S.-Mexico border and 2,700 miles across North Africa. Inskeep is a repeat visitor to Iran and has covered wars in Syria and Yemen. He also hosts the morning news podcast Up First. An Indiana native and a graduate of Morehead State University in Kentucky, Inskeep received a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for The Price of African Oil, his reports on conflict in Nigeria, and he has twice been part of NPR News teams awarded the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Silver Baton for coverage of Iraq. On days of bad news, Inskeep is inspired by the Langston Hughes book, Laughing to Keep From Crying. “Laughter is a sign that you’re not defeated,” he said.

SIX WAYS TO CELEBRATE EARTH DAY EVERY DAY Make Earth Day a year-long celebration with your kids by using these tips!

Become Urban Explorers

You don’t need to live near the woods to encounter nature. Find a spot wherever you live to relish in the lasting lesson of the tenacity of life.

Hunt for Patterns

The natural world is abundant with patterns you can see in leaves, flowers, water or even the V-shape pattern of flying birds.

Jot Down Questions

Make note of the questions your kids ask. When you arrive back home, delve into the many resources available for research.

Practice Conservation

The environment is impacted by what you do in your home. You can help to make sure there is enough water for everyone, including animals and plants, by using less.

Become A Citizen Scientist Track fireflies or explore plastics pollution. There are hundreds of ongoing citizen science projects you can join with your child.

Take Time to “Just Be”

Find beauty in what you see and experience. Encourage your child to slow down, breathe deeply and take time to appreciate the world.

Rushville members call Public Media Part of Their Community

Chris Plantz

It’s a Wednesday evening ritual at the Plantz home in Rushville, Neb. “We sit down each week with a drink and listen to the Piano Puzzler on Performance Today.” Chris Plantz admits her husband Charles is more likely to solve the puzzle, explaining that he has a better ear for classical music. In addition to Performance Today, the couple enjoys NPR’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! and Car Talk. They haven’t watched television since 2007 when a snowstorm took out their cable service. “I get most of my news from public radio,” said Chris. The couple first supported NET in 1976 and began donating to public radio in Nebraska when the network launched in 1988. Chris says she believes in supporting causes that are part of her community. “Public television and public radio belong to all of us. It’s there because we all support it.” When they aren’t listening to radio, Chris and Charles spend a lot of time reading, especially during the pandemic. They choose fiction, non-fiction, history, politics, mysteries and theology.

After serving as a school and public librarian, Chris went to Chicago and entered the seminary. She worked for nearly 10 years at churches in Kimball, Harrisburg, Oshkosh and Ogallala. The couple met at a small college in Illinois and married in 1973 after Charles graduated from law school at Northwestern. He became Sheridan County’s first public defender and later worked as a prosecutor and a county court judge. Through the years, their support for public media never wavered. I always said to my congregants, “It’s important to give no matter how small,” said Chris. “You are part of something if you support it.” So they don’t forget to renew their membership, the couple gives a monthly sustainer gift, but Chris says they often make additional donations. “Sometimes I’ll pledge again for a really cool premium. I have a great collection of mugs dating back to the very first public radio pledge drive.”

Wills Are Simple, Flexible and Versatile If writing a will seems time-consuming or difficult, remember that it is an important way to extend your love and generosity to family and friends, and an excellent way to support NET’s mission. A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure that future generations of Nebraskans can enjoy the gift of public media is by naming NET in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest. Bequests allow you to make larger gifts than might be possible during your lifetime. Plus, gifts through a will are flexible and can change as your circumstances change. 22

Unfortunately, if you die without a will, the transfer of your assets may be very different from what you expect. When you summarize your wishes, you can be sure family members, friends and the organizations you want to remember are included. netNebraska.org/giftplanning John Knape Director of Major & Planned Giving 800-634-6788, ext. 351 jknape@netNebraska.org
