The mission of NET is to enrich lives and engage minds by connecting communities and celebrating Nebraska with services that educate and enlighten. NET Director of Development : Jennifer Herstein Communications Manager: Mary Jane Winquest EDitor: Kim Hachiya Contributing writers: Kristina Jackson, Kim Rogers, MJ Winquest MULTIMEDIA Graphic Designer: Kristi Koser

Because of your support, we’ve reached more people than ever this fiscal year. Your support will make it possible to air thousands of hours of compelling new stories, outstanding history programs, live sports, art and performances and programs on NET3Create. If you’d like to make a tax-wise gift before our fiscal year is over, there’s still plenty of time. Your support truly makes a difference! To end the fiscal year strong, we are planning our final Membership Drive for Television, which runs six days in June.

Graphic Designer: Diana Fujan

We carefully curate interesting and popular programs to catch your attention during our membership drives. The June drive is focusing on music, with your favorites like Celtic Thunder but with some new programs that I know will be memorable. My new favorites will be Il Volo – We Are Love, a dynamic teen-age tenor trio who got their start on an Italian Talent Hunt program. Their operatic pop has them leading the charts in Europe. And I’m also looking forward to 70s and 80s Soul Rewind because it’s the music I remember: the Spinners; Lou Rawls; Marvin Gaye; Earth, Wind & Fire; Bill Withers; the Trampps; the Jackson 5; and Kool and the Gang. Burt Bacharach’s Best features music from this iconic composer, just in time for his 85th birthday celebration. And for fans of Glee, a fantastic new show with Matthew Morrison.

ost folks think that the end of the year comes in December but here at NET, the year ends in June, the fiscal year that is. So just as other folks are settling back to enjoy a summer slowdown, we are gearing up to finish what looks to be a successful year. With the end of the fiscal year comes budget planning – the time when we look at the available funds to produce and purchase the programs you love to watch and listen to on NET Television and Radio.

As we close out the fiscal year we want to thank you for your partnership with NET Foundation for Radio and Television. To our first-year members, we hope you will continue to support our mission in the future. To our long-time friends, we hope you have pride in knowing you keep NET Television and Radio among the best public broadcasting stations in the country. We pledge to continue to produce and broadcast the highest-quality programs. Again, thank you for your support!

Make a Legacy Gift to NET Here are examples of how retirement beneficiary gifts can be made. Making a tax-wise gift from your retirement plan or IRA may offer tax benefits to your heirs if you designate taxable assets such as IRAs and retirement accounts to charities such as NET and leave non-taxable assets, such as stocks or real estate, to your heirs.

There are a variety of ways you can make legacy gifts to NET that do not involve your will. In fact, retirement plans, IRAs, life insurance and annuities use separate beneficiary forms and designations that trump your will when it comes to passing assets after your death.

12

To make this type of gift to NET, contact your retirement plan or IRA administrator and complete a beneficiary designation form naming NET as beneficiary and the percentage you would like us to receive (1 to 100 percent). Keep a copy of the form for your records and send the original to your plan administrator. These forms

can be changed at any time without the formality (and expense) associated with changing or updating a will. You will wish to confer with your estate planning attorney, CPA, financial adviser or other professional with thorough knowledge of estate planning, taxes and your particular financial situation when making decisions about your estate. Please feel free to contact either Michele Peon-Casanova, director of major and planned giving at NET, mpeon-casanova@netnebraska.org, 800-634-6788 in Lincoln or Bridget Robbins, Omaha director of major and planned giving, brobbins@netnebraska. org, 402-932-2110 for more information.

A seventh station, NET Transmedia Lab, showed parents and kids how to use the apps for optimum learning and fun. The Auburn project continues through 2015 and includes a summer literacy program in partnership with Auburn Memorial Library.

Students Tell Visual Stories in Digital Storytelling Course By Kristina Jackson, student writer, IANR News Service A story is more than words on a page. It can be told visually or with sound, or with a combination of all three. NET Television producer Mike Farrell and wildlife photographer Michael Forsberg were part of a team who taught a Digital Imaging and Storytelling course offered by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The course gave students an opportunity to work with high-quality photography equipment to document the world around them. With timelapse photography and video, the students developed their ability to tell stories visually. The class grew out of the Platte River Basin Time-lapse Project, which Farrell and Forsberg are leading. Farrell said the class gives students the freedom to experiment with new ways to tell stories. “When you start in the work force, you don't get to pick what you work on,” he said. “But with this, they can generate their own ideas and follow them through.” When the course began in fall 2012, the instructors realized students needed to learn how to use the sophisticated equipment, including time-lapse cameras and traps for the cameras. The class was extended into a variable length class, allowing students more time to complete their stories. “If you want to tell a story, you have to have the time to gather the material,” Farrell said. Peter Stegen, a senior fisheries and wildlife major from Austin, Minn., focused on decomposition. While most people don’t like to think about death and decomposition, Stegen has always been fascinated by the subject.

“Visually, the process of decomposition is rarely put in a beautiful way,” Stegen said. “I wanted to show decomposition as a beautiful reality, a necessary part of life.” He started gathering photos of a deer decomposing on UNL’s East Campus in September. Using a time-lapse camera, Stegen collected photos that show the process over several months and has edited that footage into a project for the course. Emma Likens, a sophomore agricultural journalism major from Swanton, Neb., is one of four students, including Stegen, who took advantage of an additional semester to finish her project on her aunt and uncle’s dairy farm near Fairbury. She set out to show how the farm, Fairley Dairy, was affected by last year's drought, but this proved challenging to demonstrate visually. “You can show the sun moving over the field, but you can't see how it affects the farm,” Likens said.

She adjusted to this by focusing on a written article about the past, present and future of the farm. It will eventually be published online in a blog format with video clips and time-lapse photography. “I thought I knew about the dairy industry, but I've learned a lot,” she said. Both students enjoyed the long-term learning the course provided. Said Stegen: “You have to be prepared for things to fail, because they do, often.” Farrell said the course challenges students to develop their skills with the technology, but also to wait for the story to come together. “You burn up a lot of time waiting for things to unfold. You have to leave it open ended to find the best way to tell the story.”

The Quilted Conscience Friday, June 14, at 7 p.m. CT on NET1/HD Sixteen Sudanese girls land with their families in Grand Island, far from the trauma of their warweary homeland. Filmmaker John Sorensen documents their journey as new Americans as they participate in an arts project with a local quilters guild, guided by a nationally known African American quilt-maker. The girls create memory panels that depict their lives in Sudan, and dream panels that show their aspirations and wishes. With the help of the quilt guild, the panels become a work of art, and transform the girls and their mentors in ways that were unexpected and heartwarming. Sorensen is a Nebraska native now living in New York.
