Remember, you will only receive TWO introductory issues of NET Now. Unless you subscribe using one of the above options, your subscription will be discontinued. You only need to opt in once, so if you haven’t done so already, do it today!

At a time when our peer stations around the country have experienced declining revenues, NET revenue has grown year-to-year for the past five years – even during the economic downturn in 2008. This is a tremendous tribute to the outstanding programming that 90,000 Nebraskans enjoy weekly, a number that has also grown nearly 20 percent in recent years.

In 1879 a Ponca Indian chief made front-page news across America when he fought for the most basic human right – his freedom – at a time when Native Americans had none.

A killer is on a vendetta-fueled rampage – can Zen juggle staying alive, investigating a politically charged murder and courting his new office mate, Tania, all at the same time?

Weaving interviews, historical material and recreations, this 60-minute documentary traces Chief Standing Bear’s remarkable journey, from his Nebraska homeland to the malaria-infested plains of Indian Territory and finally to the Omaha courtroom scene in which he uttered his most famous words, “I am a man. The same God made us both.”

7 p.m. CT

8 p.m. CT

9 p.m. CT

Monitor lizards may look dragons with their long claws, razor-sharp teeth and whip-like tails, but they are actually an intelligent, different kind of reptile that’s very similar to a mammal.

How did dinosaurs survive and thrive in the gloom of the dark and frigid polar regions? NOVA explores Alaska’s North Slope to defrost a jackpot of new fossil clues.

In 1868 in the American West, paleontologists Othniel Charles Marsh and Edward Drinker Cope discover the greatest dinosaur burial ground of all time. The rivals wrestled over the discoveries that would put American science on the map.

Teaching the Teachers About 30 Lincoln Public School (LPS) teachers spent a constructive professional development day at NET this spring, thanks to funding from the Nebraska Department of Education to develop curriculum and update video equipment for use in high school business digital media classes. “We were delighted to host the teachers for an instructive day with NET’s technical and journalistic pros,” said Gary Targoff, NET assistant general manager for education services. The high school business, technology and journalism teachers learned about sound, video, lighting and news production in sessions taught by NET staff members Foster Collins, Phil Hammar, Joe Turco, Mike Tobias, Dennis Kellogg and Ray Meints. Workshops focused on both the technical and journalistic skills necessary for digital media productions. The hands-on training was designed to encourage teachers to work with students in becoming more comfortable both in front of and behind the cameras. "We look forward to continuing to develop this relationship and certainly appreciate all that NET has already done," said Carol Andringa, career and technical education curriculum specialist for LPS. "Highlights of the day at NET continue to be shared within LPS and our community."

Meadowlark: Classical Music & More d

Finai an Vocalist DinaEggar e Cellist Dav

Friday Live Features Meadowlark It was a special Meadowlark-themed Friday Live on June 10 at the NET Radio lobby in Lincoln. William Stibor welcomed cellist Dave Eggar and violinist Gregor Huebner, who talked about their unique take on classical music, which blends tango, Latin jazz and traditional classical. Stibor also featured Homestead National Monument’s “Homestead Days” in Beatrice and spotlighted summer repertory theater at Fort Robinson State Park’s Post Playhouse and at Mahoney State Park.

Chardonnay, a Cat in the Hat, cycling and strings – an odd combination, unless you’re referring to this year’s Meadlowlark Music Festival, that is. In early June, the 11th annual Meadowlark Music Festival debuted, featuring chamber music concerts at Deer Springs Winery in Lincoln, Grace Lutheran Church in Walton and on the East Campus of the University of NebraskaLincoln, plus an assortment of activities suitable for the whole family. Guests enjoyed wine and a picnic dinner on Friday night as violinist Gregor Huebner joined cellist Dave Eggar and his band Deoro to perform tango classical favorites and Latin jazz on the grounds of the Deer Springs Winery. Saturday morning brought cyclists and music enthusiasts out to the quaint Grace Lutheran Church in Walton for two concerts featuring Eggar, Huebner and Nadia Maudhoo, the Max and Lillie

Larsen Young Artist Award winner from Omaha. On Saturday afternoon guests to UNL’s East Campus met the Cat in the Hat plus learned how to drill a tooth and tempted taste buds with Meadlowlarkflavored ice cream at the Dairy Store. Later that evening Eggar and his band Deoro captivated listeners of all ages with “Xtreme Classical Crossover,” a familyfriendly take on chamber music. As they have in years past, NET Radio announcers Jerry Johnston, William Stibor, Lora Black and Network Manger Nancy Finken emceed the concerts. NET Radio also visited with Meadowlark guests at booths at each of the concerts.

From the Shower to the Car Performance Strikes the Right Chord with NET Radio Fans

M

ore than 100 chamber music fans filled NET’s Studio One for a captivating hour-long concert by the internationally renowned Chiara String Quartet on Sunday, May 15. The quartet is known for infusing traditional string quartet repertoire with a fresh excitement, as well as for their creative interpretations of new music. The Chiara String Quartet performed selections from their newly released CD, “Quartets Matmos,” which celebrates music written especially for them by Jefferson Friedman. A particular favorite with the NET studio crowd was Friedman’s three-part “String Quartet #3.” The concert was also broadcast live on NET Radio’s weekly program The Verge, hosted by Genevieve Randall. “The stars were in alignment for this event,” said NET Radio Network Manager Nancy Finken. “The live performance on The Verge was great radio. And for the 100 members of our studio audience, it was mesmerizing to watch and listen to this dynamic quartet play their hearts out. We feel so fortunate to have Chiara in Nebraska.” Members of the quartet include Rebecca Fischer and Julie Hye-Yung Yoon, violins; Jonah Sirota, viola; and Gregory Beaver, cello. They also serve as assistant research professors and artists-in-residence in the School of Music of the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. During its first decade, Chiara has established itself as among America’s most respected ensembles, lauded by the Boston Globe for its “highly virtuosic, edge-of-the-seat playing.” The quartet is celebrating its tenth anniversary season.

…NET Radio is with them wherever they go

The Dudley family vacationed in Coronado, CA When Bob and Michelle August 2010. Dudley were married in 1990, she bought a shower radio for the master bathroom in their home in Norfolk. That was a key moment in their marital relationship.

“Michelle got me hooked because she’s always telling me NPR stories,” Bob explained. “She’d get up and turn the radio on in the shower. She listens to NET Radio all the time. Then I got hooked, just because I’m up early and I want the news and to know what’s going on without interruption.” NET Radio goes with the Dudleys wherever they go. Whenever she misses a favorite program on the air, Michelle tries to catch a podcast. She has a cycling partner who always quotes Lynne Rossetto Kasper, so Michelle knows before they pedal off she’d better play the “smart card” and listen to the latest Splendid Table. In the car on Saturday mornings sons Drew and Mitch now participate in the Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me quiz segments. “They don’t have a choice anymore,” joked their father. And once, while waiting out a weather delay at their son’s soccer game, Michelle dug into the car’s glove box for post-it notes to jot down favorite quotes from Krista Tippett’s Being. “Our lives are richer for experiencing NET Radio,” said Michelle. While radio seems to be the Dudley’s main passion, Michelle explained that their television sets are generally turned to sports programming. “We enjoy Nebraska volleyball and baseball coverage, as well as anything by Ken Burns,” she said. Today, the Dudleys joke that around Norfolk they may be considered “the NET people,” not just because they have an NET license plate holder, but because their close friends know about their passion for unbiased and intelligent news and information. As NET’s Northeast district Inspire Nebraska Campaign leaders, Michelle and Bob have been making fundraising calls to friends, neighbors and business leaders in their community on behalf of NET. Bob said that asking for donations for the NET Campaign is a “no-brainer.” “I hear value in NET stories and reports,” Bob said. “It’s in-depth, it doesn’t insult your intelligence and it really gets you to think about things with a new perspective.”

G Backyard Farmer Hits the Big City The Village Pointe Omaha Farmers Market and Backyard Farmer are a recipe for success

MENU

Shoppers at Village Pointe in Omaha have the opportunity to peruse purses and produce on Saturday mornings all summer long at the Village Pointe Farmer’s Market. On June 11, visitors stopped by the NET Television Backyard Farmer booth where they picked up free packets of zinnia and tomato seeds and entered a drawing to win a floral planter from Earl May. In addition to an abundant selection of farm fresh garden fare, free-range eggs, pastured pork and grass-fed beef from vendors, there was plenty of chatter about the NET Television production Rosenblatt: The Final Inning, as well as the upcoming NET Radio series and television program, Home Fields: Digging Into Local Foods, which serves up a fresh look at the local food movement in Nebraska and around the Midwest – see the story on the back page! The Village Pointe Farmer’s Market runs every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. through October 1. Backyard Farmer airs Thursdays at 7 p.m. CT on NET1/HD.

rand Island resident Aileen Gruendel accepted the Distinguished Service Award from NET General Manager Rod Bates during the organization’s annual meeting in June before she stepped down from the NET Foundations Board of Directors following a successful nine-year tenure. Gruendel joined the NET Foundations board in 2002 and later served as president of the board. She and her husband David are clinical psychologists in Grand Island, where they operate an independent practice. Gruendel also serves on the board of directors for the Stuhr Museum in Grand Island and is past chair and member of the St. Francis Medical Center board of trustees. Gruendel earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Chicago and a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of NebraskaLincoln. She worked as a staff psychologist for the Mid-Nebraska Community Mental Health Center in Grand Island before opening her own practice in 1976.

“Aileen provided outstanding leadership during her tenure as chair, particularly during the merging of the NET Foundation for Radio and NET Foundation for Television boards in 2007,” said NET Foundations Executive Director Jeff Beckman. “Although she came to NET as a Radio Foundation Board member, Aileen recognized the advantages of combining the two entities. She and other board leaders seamlessly merged the Foundation boards, a strategic move that is paying dividends today.”

Clifford M. Hardin, former Chancellor of the University of Nebraska; Phil Heckman, former president of Doane College; and Bob Kerrey, former Nebraska Governor and U.S. Senator.
