RVTV Government Channel 14 handles the live action for Wednesday March 27. The Jackson County Board of Commissioners led off this morning with their weekly 9:30am meeting and had a strong turnout of citizens who addressed the Board concerning renewal of a conditional land use permit for Mt. View Paving on Bear Creek near Talent. The meeting took a disruptive turn at the end of the Public Forum when the final speaker had to be removed from the meeting for refusing to address the Board. The Wednesday morning meeting plays back at 8pm on Ch. 9 and 10pm on Ch. 14 each week. The Commissioners next week will televise Tuesday through Friday with their annual Budget sessions. The Budget process begins Tuesday at 8:30am, then resumes Thursday and Friday mornings at 9am. All Jackson County televised meetings are available on demand 24/7 at http://www.co.jackson.or.us/SectionIndex.asp?SectionID=136.
A spring theme continues in the posts this week as it is spring break week here at the Digital Media Center for our SOU students. One of the more enjoyable aspects of operating a community media outlet is the opportunity to reflect the beauty of our Rogue Valley from time to time. From now through May you may catch one of our annual favorites, our Spring Poets filler. Running three minutes, forty seconds, the video combines spring prose from legendary poets with spring scenes from around the valley and a piano track underneath. You can check it out anytime at: http://cvp.telvue.com/player?id=T01550&video=148535&noplaylistskin=1&width=400&height=300
A lecture from SOU leads off programming on Grants Pass City Channel 21 in Josephine County tonight. Former SOU Associate Provost Paul Steinle and wife Sara present “Who Needs Newspapers?” The Steinle’s toured the United States to see how newspapers big and small, daily and weekly, were coping in the digital age. Their work continues with a book called “The Power and Purpose of Journalism” and the entire 50 state report is available on the WNN website at http://whoneedsnewspapers.org/
And there you have it from the quiet campus of Southern Oregon University. If you have some break time this week check out your local Community Television channels or just hop online and head for the RVTV PEG TV player where you can access everything on the cloud.
