Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. Our major provider of children's programs conducted a telethon on Saturday, March 16. However we used another provider for children's programs from March 11-15 to replace the missed Saturday programming. The telethon also pre-empted Quigley's Village on March 23 so we aired Animal Rescue on March 18 to replace this program.
