Hi David, Dick, Gladys, Pippin, Stephen, Arden, and Molly,
Would any of you be willing to take on this challenge? Since Public Access has new leadership now (Ann has moved on to another nonprofit, and I don't know anything about the new Board, do you?) -- there may be an opening.

Angie of DN hasn't forgotten Fayetteville, so there will definitely be support from their end.

     Dear David,
 Susanna & Gladys,

       Happy New Year and thanks for your support of
 Democracy Now! I'm
       following up on your application to air Democracy Now!
       Fayetteville Public Access. Please let me know if the
 station will
       air DN!

       Looking forward to hearing from you.

       Hi David,
 Susanna and Gladys,


         Thanks very much for your support of Democracy Now!
 and for your
         efforts to bring DN! to Fayetteville Public Access.
         attached a signed copy of the non-exclusive
 distribution form
         which Gladys had sent to me a while back. Please let
 me know if
         you need anything else from our end. I look forward
 to hearing
         from someone in your group in the near future about
 the DN!
         broadcast on Fayetteville Public Access.

                   hi Susanna & all


                   I am an avid Democracy Now (DN) viewer and
                   financial contributor.


                 I am really glad to see this effort to get
 DN back on
                 the public tv station here locally even
 though I myself
                 watch it on the web.


               Unfortunate though my wife and I are presently
 very busy
               travelling to medical specialists with some
 serious health
               complications her son is experiencing. I
 cannot offer to
               help finish this application process at this


             As soon as I see a window of opportunity I will
 check back
             with you or Gladys and see if I can help at that


           best wishes, thanks,  david druding

               Gladys, and All,

               I'm deleting all emails from my account,
 it's gotten too
               unwieldy. And when I came across this one, I
 thought you
               might want to see it again, just in case any
 of you have
                time to work on the project, getting
 democracynow! back
               on Fayetteville Public Access TV. Gladys had
 to stop work
               on it, was too overwhelmed with OMNI business.
 Please let
               me know, if you have time to do that. The
 project only has
               a little ways to go to be finished. Thanks!

 Public Access TV

                                out. The first one is
 for you to fill out

                    behalf of OMNI,

                                Gladys, and the second
 one is for

                   to sign,

 agreeable to you.


                            I appreciate so

                                much that you are

                    Gladys will

                    with you to be sure

                                she understands the

 DVD’s every day. We hope
