See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. As a part of our service to the community, KFDM-TV reserves a certain number of commercial availabilities for public service announcements. These spots are normally provided to us through National organizations, but we also sponsor/support local events such as our 24th annual TOYFEAST, collecting non-perishable food items, toys and cash for the three area Salvation Armies serving our area. This year, during our live broadcast, we collected cash donations, approximately 3,000 toys and bikes, and thousands of dollars worth of non-perishable food items to be distributed to those less fortunate people in Southeast Texas. Our Corporate parent, Sinclair Broadcasting, donated 1.4 million dollars to the Beaumont area Salvation Army in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. We partner with local industry to provide coats and blankets to the Salvation Army in our annual Coats and Kettle campaign. Santa Sam visited Jefferson County, bringing over 5,000 toys for children devastated by Hurricane Harvey. KFDM Channel 6 was a primary sponsor of the event, helping to organize, collaborate, host and publicize the event with live shots during Live at 5 and the 6pm newscast. On THE MORNING SHOW ON KFDM, we have the OUTSTANDING EDUCATOR AWARD honoring local teachers, and FOCUS ON EDUCATION, dedicated to telling stories revolving around students, teachers, and Texas classrooms. As sponsors of Lamar University, we appeal to children with tailgate parties at the Conference at-home games, with giveaways promoting KFDM Channel 6. We produce a Lamar Basketball Coachs Show which may interest young people in college athletics. Our Pay It Forward new segment honors local volunteers, including young people, who reach out to help our community. This year, we produced SOUNDS OF THE SEASON for the third year. giving local elementary, middle school and high school choirs the opportunity to sing Christmas carols on a program produced to air on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We encouraged children and families to participate in the Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk and the Gift of Life Color Run. We participate in the NAB Don't Drink and Drive roadblock, and run these PSAs throughout the holiday, and throughout the year. National PSAs aimed at children include bicycle safety, student aid, leukemia treatments, cell phone safety, anti -drunk driving campaign, children's advocacy spots like Autism Awareness and the National Childrens Alliance, as well as as well as the Gary Sinise Foundation, A Wonderful World Value, Shelter/Adopt a Pet, Special Athlete Values, Texas 8-1-1, It's the Law, Loyalty, Pass It On, Forgiveness Values, United Way NFL Play, Just Say Hi Values, Stop Texts Wrecks Afterlife, Keep America Beautiful, Stop Texts Stop Wrecks Unlucky, and Discover the Forest.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Over more than 500 years, tens of millions of patents for products have been issued, but some are lost to history, and most dont achieve the success of, say, the telephone. Hosts Matt Hunter and Jeremy MacPherson dig up some of those of yore to see how the ideas would fare in the modern world. The guys work with a team to examine original blueprints, build prototypes and test the inventions to see how well they work. Some that the hosts want to tackle are a submarine from the late 1500s, a 14th-century machine using wind power to propel a wagon, and a 1950s design combining a Ford Thunderbird with airplane parts to make a flying car. This program will air on the tertiary digital stream (6.3).
