Voting ended yesterday. Now is the time to go see the winners and settle in for some incredible entries from all across the country HERE.
Twice as Good stars adorable twin sisters Delaney and Hadley as they show kids and parents that cooking with kids is fun. With creative and tasty dishes, the girls show other children how they can cook in their own home (with adult supervision, of course!). Twice as Good also contains colorful pop-ups and recipes on screen to help follow along at home. Tune in Sunday mornings at 9:30 thru 10/26 on KUAC TV Channel 9.1, or GCI Channel 9 & GCI Channel 657 for HD.
Come along as Ken Burns takes you on a journey through Sam Clemens’ early days on the Mississippi River, to the small river town of Hannibal, Missouri. Clemens grows up, stumbling from adventure to adventure until he begins to evolve into Mark Twain, the humorist and writer who would revolutionize the way Americans viewed themselves and their language. At the same time, explore the other side of the writer – an American icon who, through tragedy and bad financial decisions, falls hard with failure. In contrast to the wildly successful Twain, Clemens is an inept businessman who squanders his fortunes on pipe dream patents and bad investments. Tune in Tuesday nights at 7 thru 8/5, on KUAC TV Channel 9.1, or GCI Channel 9 & GCI Channel 657 for HD.
As anyone who was there knows, this year’s KUAC Red Green Regatta will go down in history as the Regatta that did not launch! High water river conditions forced a “safety first” grounding of the annual flotilla-of-fun. But those floats and spectators that did come out were not disappointed by the ingenuity, spirit, and of course duct tape. Special thanks to the sponsors, volunteers and participants who made it all possible! See all the photos and award winners HERE.
We need your help! We have plenty of the now collectable 2014 RGR shirts available here at the station because of the “grounded” Regatta. Give us a call at 474-7491 to reserve yours today or visit HERE. See you next year, on the water!
