    MOLINE, IL –WQPT, Quad Cities PBS has received a grant from the PBS Warning Alert and Response Network (WARN) program to a fund power backup and hardening project for WQPT studios and transmitters.

    WQPT will purchase, install and test back-up equipment required to maintain the station’s broadcast of Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEAs) to cellular telephone companies for up to 72 hours in the event of a power outage. WQPT will have the system installed by August 31.

    “We are pleased to be working with PBS and the Department of Commerce on the WARN program. Not only will it improve uninterrupted service to our viewers in times of emergency or crisis, but it will protect their investment in public television,” said WQPT Director Mary Pruess.

    On June 1, 2010, the Department of Commerce awarded PBS a grant under the WARN Act of 2005, which allowed PBS to implement a project establishing the PBS WARN program. With this grant, PBS assists stations like WQPT comply with an FCC a mandate to provide a backup pathway for sending WEAs from FEMA to cellular phone companies. One year later, the Department of Commerce authorized an additional round of funding, which allowed PBS to award sub-grants for the purchase and installation of the generators, UPS systems and related power backup and hardening equipment that would ensure continuous dissemination of WEAs.

    Creature Attacks Iowa


    I thought you would be interested in the bizarre Iowa case that led to my newest book,  The Van Meter Visitor: A True and Mysterious Encounter with the Unknown

    For several nights in 1903, the small town of Van Meter, Iowa was terrorized by a giant bat-like creature that emerged from an old abandoned coal mine.

    The identity of this mysterious visitor was never discovered. Over 100 years later, we set out to Van Meter to shine a light on this amazingly bizarre case. Filled with eye witness reports, historic photos, and current accounts of the paranormal, this in-depth book looks to discover what really happened in the town of Van Meter.

    If you agree that this Iowa mystery would be of interest to your readers, I have included all the information along with an attachment of what the creature looked like, and would love to talk to you about the bizarre case.

    Keep an eye out,

    Chad Lewis





    A True and Mysterious Encounter with the unknown

    Over 100 years after the mysterious visitor terrorized Iowa, three researchers set out to Van Meter to shine light on this amazingly bizarre case. Filled with eye-witness reports, historic photos, and current accounts of paranormal events, this in-depth book looks to discover:

    • Was it an unknown animal?
    • Was it mass hysteria?
    • Was it an extraterrestrial?
    • Was it a hoax?
    • Or was it something far stranger?

    New Book on Rural Education Teaches America History Recounted In “We Were Pretty Darn Good” PDF Print E-mail

    There was a time when country living was a significant part of American life. That time and place needed an educational system that would work, and whatwas finally made to work is the subject of a new book by Steve Grineski. We Were Pretty Darn Good, a story of progressive education in rural communities, links President Theodore Roosevelt’s Report of the Country Life Commission with the need to educate thousands of children born on farms and homesteads. Author Steve Grineki, with an eye for vivid detail, traces the response to that report.

    Focusing on the teacher preparation at the legendary Morehead Normal School in Minnesota and the contributions of its graduates to the transformation of America, Steve Grineski traces the results of the teaching efforts over two generations, With verbal sketches of several “darn good” teachers and the specific results of their teaching efforts, he brings into clear focus, the training and dedication of the rural teachers who brought to their students, the world of analytical thought and inspiration, much of it driving bountiful changes to significant measures of the  American landscape. We Were Darn Good is a fascinating book and is a long overdue chapter, not just in the annals of American education, but in the wider panorama of American history

    Steve Grineski PhD serves as liaison between the Minnesota State University-Morehead  Teacher Education and the Moorhead, Minnesota, Alternative Education programs. He has presented and been published widely in diverse areas including cooperative learning and corporate school reform..

    We Were Darn Good is available at Barnes and Noble bookstores, Books a Million, BN.com and Amazon and bookstores nationwide.
