Cheryl Noble: NCTV gives thanks

I would like to extend a huge thank you to the many volunteers, merchants, donors, board members, and a great stream team for making NCTV’s fundraising telethon a success on March 21, 2015.

Hosted by the talented Danny McCammon, the live streaming event was made possible by Jim Heck, Tom Prehn of Telestream, Eric Norrell of AJA Video Systems, Craig Burgess, and Dick Mentzer. Also thank you to Art and Landon in the county’s Information Center, and Gil Dominguez for working on our live TV connection.

Thank you, Melisa Mistler-Yates of M3Mall for your generous donation and providing gracious queens to work check in and phones. Thank you Lauren Swietlicki for keeping tabs on the donations.

Thank you to the following merchants and individuals for the wonderful auction items: Sierra Vintners Association, Wolf Mountain Day Spa, ABT Plumbing and Electric, Cirino’s at Main Street, Don Adams Satellite, Vreni Shayani, Margaret Bloebaum, and Robin Galvan-Davies.

The telethon will replay next week on NCTV. Bidding on auction items has been extended to 5 p.m., Monday.

Thank you our amazing musicians and performers: Ragged But Right, Anne Merdinger, Michael Smidt, Clod Headgate, Delirious Moonlight, Steady Hand, Free Range String Band, No Hands Bridge, and Aeron Miller’s Beyond Fire Tribe that kept our audience spellbound with the day’s final performance.

Thank you to NCTV’s board for their help and great leadership: Keith Davies, Jan Fishler (our camera operator for the day!), Yvette Cadeaux (who sang too!), Fran Cole and Joe Hevia.

And a special thank you to Juan Browne, NCTV’s multi-talented producer and co-host. We are so blessed to have you.

Good Job


I guess I am getting old and grumpy. What is with the “good job” expression being so commonly used in very unexpected settings?
