    KENYA - THE GREED FOR IVORY: Elephant tusks are in huge demand on the black market. The price for ivory has doubled in the past two and a half years. Poachers are making big money and that encourages them to take risks. The Save the Elephants organization in Kenya's Samburu National Park protects the animals. Outside the reserve they are often hunted by poachers. Now park rangers are recruiting workers from surrounding villages who know how the poachers operate and are an effective way of putting a stop to their illegal activities.

    Moyers & Company [#131H] Between Two Worlds: Life on the Border No writer understands the border culture between Mexico and the US more intimately than Luis Alberto Urrea, this week's guest on an encore broadcast. His own life is the stuff of great novels. Son of a Mexican father and Anglo mother, Urrea grew up first in Tijuana and then just across the border in San Diego. Over the years he has produced a series of acclaimed novels, including The Hummingbird's Daughter, The Devil's Highway, and his latest, Queen of America - each a rich and revealing account of the people of the borderlands that join and separate our two nations.
    Earlier this year, a number of books were removed from Tucson, Arizona classrooms when the Tucson school district eliminated a Mexican-American studies program on the accusation it was "divisive." The program included references to Urrea's work. Urrea talks with Bill about that episode as he unfolds the modern reality of life on the border.

    Washington Week [#5206H] New polls show the presidential race remains in a dead heat with fewer than 90 days until Election Day. A new set of New York Times/CBS News polls in 3 key swing states shows President Obama leading in Virginia and Wisconsin, but trailing in Colorado where Mitt Romney leads Obama 50%-45%. But when it comes to favorability, Mr. Obama holds a 13-point edge over Mr. Romney (53% to 40%) in the latest Washington Post/ABC News national survey.
    There are some mixed results among the polls, but most experts agree the election boils down to a handful of battleground states. That's why both campaigns are targeting key states and select groups of voters. Both candidates are out campaigning in crucial swing states like Iowa and Colorado hoping to convert undecided voters into full-fledged supporters. And Obama and Romney are both aiming their messages at the same group of voters: women and the working class.
    While the candidates continue their grassroots outreach with voters, outside political groups that support each candidate are raising eyebrows with their controversial ads about welfare and healthcare that have the Obama and Romney campaigns crying foul.
    Plus time is ticking down for Mitt Romney to announce his choice of a vice presidential running mate. We will examine the state of the 2012 presidential race with:
    Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times;
    Beth Reinhard of National Journal;

    This American Land [#202] Wolverines, Desert Wilderness, Military Base Makeover Among the most solitary and elusive mammals in North America, wolverines were wiped out decades ago by fur traders and poison in the lower 48 states. Now these mammals with a ferocious reputation are making a slow comeback, migrating south from Canada. It takes rugged and dedicated scientists and photographers to sneak a peek into their world! See how they are working to understand and preserve the wolverine's habitat.
    For decades U.S. soldiers headed for battle spent weeks in training at Fort Ord, California. Trucks, tanks, grenades and artillery they spread over this land on the Pacific Coast. When the base was shuttered in the early 1990s the community nearby was devastated economically. But residents, the military and local businesses put their heads together to give a re-birth to these tens of thousands of acres. Now it attracts hikers, mountain bikers, researchers, even young school kids who can share and enjoy this land. Host Bruce Burkhardt takes us on a tour.
    What do casino executives, Moapa Paiute Indians and nature photographers have in common? They are all eager to protect an area known as Gold Butte in Nevada. The group "Friends of Gold Butte" is working to add the highest federal protection to the region, by designating it a wilderness. This could help add law enforcement to this huge acreage, to protect ancient cultural sites and prevent vandalism in this stark and beautiful desert.
    It's a detective story that has unfolded in the waters off Key West, Florida. What's been killing the Elkhorn coral? Biologist Kathryn Sutherland has identified human sewage as the source of the coral-killing pathogen that causes white pox disease. Elkhorn coral was listed for protection as an endangered species in 2006, largely due to white pox disease. Sutherland works with water treatment facilities in south Florida to try to make sure water is cleared of this pathogen before it goes back into the Atlantic.

    Your Turn to Care [#101H] The first episode focuses on two families. We meet the first at the beginning stages of caregiving, when even talking about planning for the future is an issue no one wants to address. The episode shows "the talk" the family has with an aging parent which covers such topics as, 'Who has power of attorney?', 'What should go into a health directive?' and 'How can I draft a will that is stress free?' The second family is dealing with the issue of taking the car keys away from an aging parent as well as the desperation felt by the mother's loss of her driver's license. When the mother is required to take a driving test at the age of 75, her very independence is at stake. The episode concludes with a profile of WISE Connections, one of several membership-based community groups sprouting up across the country. These communities, part of the growing "Village Movement," pool their resources to provide practical services to their members, so that seniors may continue living independently in their own homes. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

Throughout, doctors from several Pittsburgh-area hospitals stress the importance of communication regarding end-of-life decision-making. These difficult, but necessary conversations can help patients navigate - and even dictate - their end-of-life scenarios.

    Kissimmee Basin: The Northern Everglades Travel with filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus along the Kissimmee River and surrounding regions. Meet the "Keepers of the Land" and experience a "sense of place" in the vast open spaces in the cattle country of Florida's private and public lands. Throughout the centuries, the Everglades have inspired strong emotion and debate among soldiers and poets, politicians and citizens. Its history is as broad and sprawling as the "River of Grass" itself. Although many stories have been told about the Everglades - from drainage to restoration - few have been told about where it all begins: the Kissimmee River Basin. Restoration and protection of the natural values of this vast, watery landscape may well hold the key to restoration of the Greater Everglades ecosystem. The Kissimmee Basin: The Northern Everglades invites you to take a trip up the Kissimmee Valley back through time to discover the well-reasoned, yet unforeseen consequences of a flood control project that turned the 103-mile long meandering river full of life, into a 52-mile long, multi-million dollar over-engineered channel that drained the surrounding wetlands, caused the disappearance of large flocks of wading birds, and a significant decline of an abundant freshwater fishery. "Kissimmee Basin area ... that's one of the areas of Florida that you can still go to and, if you look for it, it's there. You can see Florida just like it was seventy-five, a hundred, or more years ago." Patrick Smith, Author, A Land Remembered. duration 56:44   STEREO TVG

    Bombing of Germany: American Experience [#2203H] On September 1, 1939 -- the first day of World War II in Europe -- President Franklin D. Roosevelt appealed to the warring nations to "under no circumstances undertake the bombardment from the air of civilian populations." Just six years later, British and American Allied forces had carried out a bombing campaign of unprecedented might over Germany's cities, claiming the lives of nearly half a million civilians. From International Emmy Award and Peabody Award-winning producer Zvi Dor-Ner (Israel's Next War, House of Saud) comes "The Bombing of Germany" a film that examines the defining moments of the offensive that led the U.S. across a moral divide. Weaving together interviews with WWII pilots and historians, and archival footage of the bombing and its aftermath, the film is a reminder of the dilemma imposed by war's civilian casualties, a topic that continues to resonate as America enters the eighth year of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. duration 54:32   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)
