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. KFRE continued to the serve the educational, informational, and social needs of children throughout the 4th Quarter 2014 through extensive broadcast and outreach activities. The station has continued to air PSAs for local and national organizations serving the interests of children and families, including those from The Partnership for Drug Free Kids Campaign and stories of people who know the challenges of addiction as well as the struggles and power of recovery, from The Ad Council Fatherhood Involvement Campaign "Kid Again", creating an awareness to fathers on the importance of their presence in the well-being of their children's lives, and from the Ad Council on the dangers of childhood asthma. We also have presented stories in our newscasts highlighting children's issues, such as the impact of what is now the common childhood disease, tooth decay, on boys and girls, the need for increased child awareness from the experience of the toddler who lost a foot in a lawnmower, an increased understanding of impact of good nutrition on children, and how it can lead to better test scores, and the potentially tragic impact of cyber bullying, as in the story of a bullied child with cerebral palsy. The station continues to provide tours of our facility to local schools to show where and how the news is produced, and to answer questions on what skills are needed to work in the industry, including education. The station's on air talent maintain an extensive schedule with community groups and schools. Dozens of visits were made to schools to read to students, helping them develop a love of reading and continuing education, teaching them about weather and the environment, sports and health, and to answer questions about television, world events, and issues that impact children. Video taken during these visits and their accompanying stories are also featured on our website. Our news personalities are all active in the community, including one of who serves on the board of the Northern California Chapter of the National Association of Television Arts and Sciences, serving in the Mentoring and Scholarship programs. Our station is active on social media, where we frequently field questions from children, and take the opportunity to encourage them to continue their education, act in a socially responsible manner, and become good stewards of the planet on which they live.
