Notwithstanding this somewhat reasonable reply and WC's self-righteous bloviating, the news media opened the door on this by reporting anything about it in the first place. The lack of any followup is curious to say the least. Applies to both the "apparent suicide" and the body found behind Dollar General. Not to say it hasn't happened many times in the past, but it is still curious…

They note right up front the murdered couple was Native American, why don't they also note the killer was a Mexican national?

There is no difference! They both enjoy taking money from people who work for it and giving it to the leeches. They also have no problem killing the unborn and selling their body parts. They are both selfish and lazy. Neither has any redeeming value in life. In the old days they would have all starved to death do to their failure to plant or harvest food for the winter.

Actually, Hydro, you don't have "every right" to know who the deceased gentleman is (unless you're his next of kin). You merely paid your taxes; that one (insignificant) fact does not give you the "right" to know any darned thing about the man. (Using your logic, the identities and the home addresses of crime victims would be announced every night on the 10 o'clock news, simply to…

Network Knowledge sells farm land from Macomb transmitting site

3 years ago by Bob Gough

Two years ago, the corporation sold its WQEC transmitting tower in Fowler

Network Knowledge, parent company of WSEC/WQEC, is selling more land as part of its ongoing strategy to restructure debt, in part by selling assets deemed non-essential to providing their programming.

“Our primary goal is to deliver quality programming,” said Dr. Jerold Gruebel, president & CEO of Network Knowledge. “We want to broadcast as much of the treasure of national programming as possible, and we want to be a valued community resource for locally-produced programs, primarily in collaboration with community groups and organizations.”

To do this, Network Knowledge has begun a strategy of reducing debt through the sale of assets and diversifying its fund raising by increasing viewer support, attracting more business partners for sponsorship of its programming and creating additional infrastructure revenues, such as increased tower leases.

Two years ago, Network Knowledge sold its WQEC transmitting tower in Fowler, Illinois. WQEC is the Network Knowledge community-licensed public television station for Quincy. With the leaseback of tower space for WQEC (at no cost), the new tower owner is able to generate revenues from tower leases while Network Knowledge was able to reduce debt equal to the sale of the tower.

Network Knowledge is presently completing the sale of farm land it owns for its WMEC/ PBS Macomb transmitting site in Colchester (completion of the sale should take 4 to 6 weeks), and may consider selling its farm land for the WSEC transmitting site in Franklin. Sale of the Colchester farm land will eliminate the line-of-credit debt Network Knowledge has with Bank of America, its primary lender, and give it funds to pay debt service on its long-term loan for approximately half of this fiscal year which began on July 1.

“This sale reduces our overall debt and gives Network Knowledge much needed relief in paying debt service, which in turn helps our operating cash flow. We retain ownership of the transmitting tower and all equipment on it.”
