Santa Rosa Advances Cannabis Cultivation Regulations

Santa Rosa is taking its first detailed steps toward regulating the cultivation of medical marijuana within the city.

First of all, my apologies for being away from this blog for so long. Last June 3rd, I found myself at Kaiser Hospital in Santa Rosa for emergency surgery. Complications, additional surgery and recovery became my life over the past many weeks. But now I am able to write once again.

Of course, the June 12 digital transition came and went since then. All seems to have gone very smoothly for KRCB and most of our viewers. New digital antennas are up, converters are properly tuned and many of you are enjoying our three digital over the air services, with PBS programming (much of it in high definition) on DTV-1, PBS Create "how to" programming on DTV-2 and our sister station, KRCB-FM audio on DTV-3.

Programming changes are coming up quickly as well. After decades on the PBS schedule, the Monday-Friday broadcasts of "Reading Rainbow" will cease at the end of August. While the series has not been in production for years, the repeats have continued to be popular. However, funding has dried up in our soft economy. The good news for you all is the return of "The Electric Company" to our air in September, with eventual Monday-Friday broadcasts at 4:30pm. "Hey you guys!"

Also, this fall, watch for a new look and feel to your favorite nightly news source, "The PBS Newshour". Jim Lehrer is not retiring. He will be joined by additional co-anchors who will add increased depth and analysis to this already award-winning news series.

Some other exciting new series we are proud to bring to KRCB this fall are "Great Conversations" on Friday nights, "Life Part2" on Tuesdays and "VOCES" on Monday nights. Check on-line or if you are a member, your "Open Air" guide for specific episodes. And later this fall, watch for a special series of independent films designed for students of democracy and media. The series is titled "Student to Citizen" and will air one Tuesday each month through May, 2010. Details will be on our web site shortly.
That's it for now.
Thanks for watching and supporting KRCB Public Television.
