Summer School Begins June 6 – Summer school begins Monday, June 6. The eight-week session runs from June 6 to July 29. The first four-week session runs from June 6 to July 1. The second four-week session runs from July 5-29.

KENW Online Auction Runs June 1-10 – The 2011 KENW Online Auction begins June 1 and runs through June 10. You have the opportunity to bid on (and buy) lots of great gift certificates and merchandise -- and help KENW public television at the same time! The monies that we raise through the annual Auction go towards purchasing and broadcasting the fine programs viewers enjoy on public television. So, it's a win/win situation for everyone.

Go to and browse from hundreds of items. If you registered in the past, please go to your profile and make sure all of your information is still correct. If you are new to the Auction, click on the "register" button at the top of any auction page, and type in your name, address, telephone number(s) and e-mail address. You choose your own password and within minutes, your username will be e-mailed to you. Then, you're ready to start bidding!

If you know of anyone who doesn't have internet access or who don't like to bid via their computer, tell them that this year they can order an Auction catalog for $2.00 (which will be deducted from their Auction invoice). After they go through the catalog and highlight items they want to bid on, they can call KENW at 1-888-367-5369 (toll-free) or locally at 575-562-2112, and our telephone operators will place their bids for them -- and let them know when their bid has been outbid.

We want everyone to participate in this year's Online Auction. Another way you can help is to forward this e-mail to everyone in your address book -- and share the information with your family and friends who don't have e-mail.

To order the auction catalog, please send a check or money order (payable to KENW-TV) to: Auction, 1500 S. Ave. K, Station #52, Portales, NM 88130.

Beginning May 15, you can also view the auction catalog on our station's website at:

If you have any problems opening the auction website or have questions about items, call Sheryl Borden at ext. 2112 or email

I wonder if their might be some who ended staying in the area, where we might be able to have a little get together there in Portales or even on the campus.  Any chance on having capacity to getting data on the 73 or 74 Echo or even a Hard Copy?

Thanks for any assistance.

Instant Immersion French is a language program published by Topics Entertainment. The learning objectives include learning basic vocabulary and everyday phrases; learning complex phrases, correct pronunciation, and how to converse in French; and refining what you learned in the prior objectives.  Other features, each on their own disc, include a DVD game for the whole family, an iPod audio disc, and a mystery game called “Who is Oscar Lake?” All of these additional features also teach one to speak French, and are designed to be a part of the immersion program.

All discs install easily. Just insert the disc and double click the installation option from autorun. If autorun fails to launch, open My Computer and left click the drive that the disc is in and select the install option. There is no printed manual. The beginning computer user should have no trouble installing this software.

Each learning objective listed above corresponds to a level of the program. Each level is comprised of three discs. The objectives are met through each level. The software is very interactive. Every aspect of the program demands user participation. The feedback that one gets from this program includes enthusiastic praise for correct answers, and scores from the mini games. The age group appropriateness varies per level, but on the whole, the age group best suited for this program would be age nine and up. This program is very impressive, and is an excellent alternative to the more expensive alternatives in existence today.    

For assistance, contact Tyson Brown at 562.2646 or visit him at Room 146 in Golden Library.

We also wanted to remind the campus community to notify the University Police Department in advance if you are expecting visitors to campus so they may brief staff on such activity.  In the event a visitor is issued a citation for "Failure to Register" they can fill out the brief visitor form on the back side of their citation and mail it in or drop it by the University Police Department.  These citations are automatically voided for visitors and this applies only for "Failure to Register" violations.
