The mission of NET is to enrich lives and engage minds by connecting communities and celebrating Nebraska with services that educate, entertain and enlighten. Foundations Executive Director and publisher: Jeff Beckman Communications Manager: Mary Jane Winquest EDitor: Michelle DeRusha

My son Brady and I watched Field of Dreams nearly every year from the time he was an 8-year old Little Leaguer until he finished his baseball career at Nebraska Wesleyan University in 2010. We typically Jeff Beckman in the studio with ESPN commentator Kyle Peterson during a 2010 pledge drive. pulled out the DVD around March 1 and enjoyed the Kevin Costner film that depicts an Iowa corn farmer who hears voices telling him to build a baseball field in the middle of a corn field. Watching this show together gave us baseball fever as we looked ahead to warmer Nebraska weather and outdoor activities. On Tuesday, March 6 at 9 p.m. CT, NET will begin a new spring tradition when we air Rosenblatt: The Final Inning, an NET Television documentary that first aired in June of 2010. Producer Sue Maryott and NET Sports Executive Producer Joe Turco and their talented crew captured the significance of Rosenblatt Stadium perfectly in this production. Although the stadium will be torn down, and the College World Series is now played in a fantastic new ballpark in downtown Omaha, I'm convinced that baseball aficionados and history buffs alike will enjoy watching Rosenblatt: The Final Inning for many decades to come on NET.

During the program, I will be joined in the studio by new Nebraska head baseball coach Darin Erstad and Creighton head baseball coach Ed Servais, both of whom will offer insights into their teams' upcoming seasons. Creighton is coming off of a big year in 2011 and has high expectations for 2012, including a 10-block trip down Burt Street to the College World Series. Nebraska has high hopes under the leadership of Erstad, a two-time MLB All-Star who played a key role on the Anaheim Angel's World Series Championship in 2002.

Jazz Currents

Debuts on NET Radio with a New Host

NET Radio’s Saturday evening jazz program recently got a new name, a new host and some new sounds when Jazz Currents (formerly Early in the Evening) debuted with Lincoln native Tom Ineck as host. “I’m really excited about sharing my enthusiasm for jazz with NET Radio’s statewide audience,” said Ineck, who plans to mix classic jazz with modern contemporary recordings and to supplement NET Radio’s jazz CD collection with selections from his extensive personal collection. In addition to hosting Jazz Currents, Ineck, who graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln School of Journalism, works as a freelance public relations specialist for the Nebraska Humanities Council and the Berman Music Foundation. He also writes jazz reviews for the Lincoln Journal Star and hosts a jazz program on community radio station KZUM in Lincoln. Prior to that he worked as an arts and entertainment reporter for the Lincoln Journal Star. Ineck also served on the boards of KZUM, Lincoln’s July Jamm and the Friends of the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center in Lincoln and volunteers with the Community Services Fund. Listen to Jazz Currents on the air or online at netNebraska.org/radio, Saturdays from 8-10 p.m. CT.

He’ll talk about being a composer in the Internet age as well as about his personal history as a musician. Born in Alabama and now living in Pennsylvania, Banks’ music has been performed in China, Italy, Canada and Rust y Ba nks throughout the United States. Inspired by beauty, his music is nonetheless thoroughly modern, often combining boom-boxes and video with dynamic audio/video installations. “Musically Speaking” classes are free and open to the public, although seating is limited. Register by calling the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at 402-472-6265 or via email to olli@unl.edu. Participants should arrive 15 minutes before the class start time.

Those interested in attending need not leave the comfort of their own homes to participate, as the class is also streamed on the web at olli.unl.edu/ musicallyspeaking (a Flash player is needed). The series is presented by NET Radio, the Nebraska Chamber Players and OLLI and is funded in part by the Nebraska Humanities Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.

A Nebraska Couple Makes Culture Their Cause Aside from tuning in to the 5:30 and 10 p.m. local news, their dial at home is most often set to NET Television. “NET never disappoints,” said Les.

Karen and Les Domina

“We are stay-at-home people,” explained Les Domina during a phone conversation with his wife Karen on the line in Fremont. “We’re not ashamed to say that we watch a lot of television, especially during the winter months.”

The Dominas have watched NET Television for so long they don’t even remember when they first started. They do count Fawlty Towers – a BBC series starring John Cleese, broadcast on NET in the 1980s – among their all-time favorites. Nor do they remember the year they first became NET members, although they’d guess it was between 30 and 40 years ago.

But they do remember all of their current favorite programs, which include the popular series American Experience, Frontline, Sherlock, NOVA and Nature. Other never-miss shows include Lawrence Welk, Great Romances, Guy Lombardo and This Old House. “I’ve built a lot of houses with those guys,” quipped Les, who is retired from Western Electric. Their appreciation for educational programming that examines history, nature and culture convinced the Dominas to set up a bequest to NET that will benefit generations of Nebraskans to come, including

Is a Charitable Bequest the Right Gift for You?

L

ike the Dominas, many Nebraskans who love NET choose to include NET Television and/or NET Radio in their wills, ensuring that their support impacts generations of public broadcasting viewers and listeners to come. Called a charitable bequest, this type of gift offers several benefits: Simplicity – Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed. Share the sample bequest language for NET with your estate planning attorney: “I give, devise and bequeath to the NET Foundation for Television and/ or the NET Foundation for Radio, at 1800 North 33rd Street, Lincoln, NE 68503 [written amount; percentage of estate; or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

12

Flexibility – Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time. Versatility – You can structure the bequest to leave a specific item or amount of money, make the gift

contingent on certain events or leave a percentage of your estate to us. Tax Relief – If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift’s full value.

their two grandchildren, Sarah and Hunter DeBoer, who live in Firth. “We both feel very deeply that we want to try to instill in Sarah and Hunter as much knowledge about the world around us as we can,” Karen explained. “I call our daughter Carol often to let her know about programs on NET.” When they are not attending their grandkids’ swim meets, soccer games, piano concerts and dance recitals, it’s safe to say the Dominas are at home watching NET Television, with their highlighted copy of NET Now on the end table next to the remote control. “We’re happy to have the magazine back,” Karen said. “We like the program descriptions, and we use the magazine as a program guide. We really missed it; it’s very handy.”

When you make a bequest or any other planned gift to NET, you automatically become a member of the Friends of the Future Society, which entitles you to several special benefits, including: • DVDs of NET Television productions • Special program-related gifts • VIP tours of the NET studios • Invitations to special events • Recognition in NET’s Annual Report Our new planned giving website offers myriad resources and information about how to make a bequest, as well as many other planned giving ideas and details about the Friends of the Future Society. Visit netNebraska.org/ giftplanning or call or email one of the Foundations staff members listed on pages 14 and 15.

NET Co-Produces Eldercare and Dementia Public Media Series

M

ore than 150 people attended a screening at Bellevue University in Lincoln on January 19 to launch Now What?, a public media series focusing on eldercare and dementia. Nebraska First Lady Sally Ganem, Bellevue University president Mary Hawkins, NET General Manager Rod Bates, NET Foundations Executive Director Jeff Beckman and many area healthcare professionals and caregivers attended the screening. Now What? Living with Dementia is part one of the four-part series co-produced by Dr. Anna Fisher, a health, quality and nursing services education expert at Hillcrest Health Systems, and NET producer Jody Millard. The 30-minute episode addressed a number of issues, including the different types of dementia, early warning signs and symptoms, the normal process of aging, and what steps families should take first. The next three episodes in the series will explore other challenges facing the aging population and their support groups. Episode two, Eldercare Issues, will help viewers recognize when someone is failing and will include information about financial and estate planning for long-term care, various insurance options, understanding Medicare and Medicaid and other related issues. Episode three will deal with “the issues the public shies away from,” said Dr. Fisher, namely end-of-life

planning, hospice, palliative care and funeral arrangements. The final episode in the series will focus on caregiver burdens and stresses. “NET has wholeheartedly embraced this public media project, because we know eldercare is such an important issue for so many Nebraskans,” said Shandi Petersen, NET Director of Corporate and Business Development. “Beginning in January 2011, America’s baby boomers began turning 65 at the rate of 100,000 every day. We want to help educate

the public about what’s ahead and what resources are available.” Beckman said NET was proud to be at the forefront of this topic by presenting this first of a four-part series on understanding dementia and the issues of eldercare. The Now What? public media series is co-produced by NET and the Consortium for Dementia Alternatives. Additional funders include Hillcrest Health Systems, Eastmont Towers, America First Foundation and Bellevue University.

Visit netNebraska.org/nowwhat to watch the Living with Dementia episode and for additional eldercare resources. Living with Dementia will also air on NET2 on Thursday, March 8 at 7:30 p.m. CT.

NET Begins Terrestrial Signal Distribution

Did You Know? Another way NET Connects the State

Effective February 1, NET began to use fiber lines and microwave technology to distribute the network’s television signals across the state to our 9 transmitter and 15 translator towers (previously, NET uplinked its programming to a satellite and then back down to its transmitters). Nebraska’s cable companies and the public will continue to receive the signals for all three television channels (NET1/HD, NET2 and NET3) from the towers over-theair via antennas. This new terrestrial signal distribution will allow for improved efficiency and significant cost savings for NET.

NET may be best-known for its television and radio programming, but did you know NET also serves a wide variety of private and public businesses and entities through our streaming and videoconferencing services? For example, in 2011, in addition to streaming hundreds of hours of sports and documentary programming, NET also streamed content for dozens of organizations, including the Nebraska Healthcare Association, Nebraska Wesleyan University, the Nebraska Department of Education and the University of Nebraska’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.

“We’re able to make this change because of the investment Nebraska has made in burying fiber lines across the state,” said Stacey Decker, Assistant General Manager for Technology. Time Warner Cable of Lincoln and Cox Cable of Omaha receive direct feeds from NET and will be unaffected. Viewers with these cable services will continue to have 24-hour access. The over-the-air broadcast day will continue to be 18 hours, from 6 a.m. – midnight. However, DISH subscribers in Scotts Bluff County in Nebraska and in Goshen and Laramie counties in Wyoming may lose NET Television reception, due to the fact that those counties fall within the Cheyenne-Scottsbluff designated market area (DMA). Although satellite companies have the option of carrying local channels, they are not required to carry programming outside their “DMA,” which is out of NET’s control. The NET signal will still be available, but residents there will need to rely on an antenna, rabbit ears or cable service. Questions about this change? Please contact the NET Help Desk at 800-698-3426.

In addition, NET streamed more than 1,700 hours of live Legislative coverage from the main Legislative chamber, seven committee hearing rooms, the Governor’s hearing room, the Nebraska Supreme Court and the Nebraska Appellate Court. In 2011 NET also hosted 198 videoconferences totaling more than 1,600 hours, allowing business and non-profits across the state to meet via video and audio.
