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. WDEF aired PSAs which were of benefit to the youth during the 4th quarter of 2013. A complete listing of PSAs which aired on 12.1 and 12.2 during this quarter can be found in our public file. The station sponsored several programs which engaged children and one such program is the Golden Apple Award Program. WDEF News Anchor Joe Legge through on air announcements, solicited students with the permission of their parents to nominate a teacher who has had a positive impact on their life. A teacher was then chosen by a panel of judges based on the students comments then highlighted along with the nominating student on Tuesdays Newscast at 6. An example of a Golden Apple winner was Jill Sewell of Westside Elementary. She dreamed of being a teacher from the time she was a small child and her students say she makes them love learning. She continued to teach while fighting breast cancer but never wore a wig, only a hat. She said one day she decided to take off her hat to show the kids the affects of some types of cancer treatments. She was a little apprehensive of the response she would get from the kids. A little boy smiled and said, its ok, you are bald just like my Grandpa. She allowed the students see how she was coping with her illness and let them know it was ok to talk about cancer. Her coworkers call her an inspiration to them and to the students. Another initiative sponsored by the station was a news segment called Whats Right With Our Schools. WDEF News Anchor John Mercer featured a news segment each Monday during the 6pm newscast highlighting educators, students, individuals or community groups which worked with the students and schools in an extraordinary manner and who went above and beyond the norm in helping to educate children through life lessons. An example featured in our weekly broadcast were Physics students at Boyd Buchanan who took part in a Physics Trebuchet and Catapult Competition at the school. The students designed and built large trebuchets and catapults that were capable of throwing a softball over 100 yards. They gathered on the stadium field to throw their projectiles from the machines they had made. It was a fun way to learn physics, and show off something that the students built themselves. This exercise provided a learning experience in a unique and fun way the students are more likely to remember. WDEF also joined forces with the Salvation Army in the Angel Tree Drive. Trees with small card board angels listing a needy child or senior citizens name were placed on these trees along with suggestions for gift purchases. Through on air exposure our viewers were asked to stop by any area mall, pick up an angel and return it with a gift. Thanks to joint efforts the Salvation Army assisted 5445 children and seniors with Christmas gifts. This was a huge increase in requests for help versus last years. WDEF and Family Promise of Chattanooga sponsored the 2013 Camp Out Box City in which area youths and adults brought material to build box houses in an outdoor pavilion to expose themselves to life as a homeless person. They secured sponsors and raised funds to help end homelessness in the Chattanooga area. During the fourth quarter WDEF also sponsored the Teen Challenge Clothing Drive to benefit the Teen Challenge addiction treatment program. Over 38,000 pounds of clothing items were collected during the clothing drive and sold thru All American Thrift Stores to benefit Teen Challenge.

CHRIS PET VET allows viewers unique insight into the life of one of the world's busiest vets and the animals that he treats. For those animals that require specialist services, Dr. Chris calls on his good friend and colleague Dr. Lisa Chimes, who works at a small animal specialist hospital. The show usually consists of three segments, following the doctor as he treats various animals that are in trouble and offering the viewer opportunities to understand the challenges a veterinarian daily faces. The series focuses on how the doctor investigates the individual problem and tries to develop solutions that on the surface would seem confounding to the viewer. As such the show not only offers a view into careers in and responsibility for taking care of pets, but also into problem solving strategies and behaviors. This program is specifically designed to further the educational and informational needs of children, has educating and informing children as a significant purpose, and otherwise meets the definition of Core Programming as specified in the Commission's rules.
