    America Reframed [#112] 90 Miles Probing and thoughtful, Juan Carlos Zaldvar's personal memoir offers a rare glimpse into Cuba, a country as mythologized to Americans as the US is to the rest of the world. The Cuban-born filmmaker recounts the strange fate that brought him as a teenage communist to exile in Miami in 1980 during the dramatic Mariel boatlift. Zaldvar uses news clips, family photos and home movies to depict the emotional journey of an immigrant father and son struggling to understand the historical and individual forces shaping their relationships and identities in a new country. A Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB) Co-presentation. A Diverse Voices Project Selection. duration 1:28:00   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Visa Dream This program tells the touching story of one family's experience gaining entry into the United States. Representatives from the US Consulate demystify the visa process and illuminate the reasons why they approve some applications - and deny others. The film's main characters are Ramon and Aurora Chavez, an elderly couple living in Jalisco, Mexico, who have not seen their children in 16 years. They are a family divided, connected only by photo albums and phone calls.
    The daughters may not visit Mexico because they do not possess the necessary documents; going there would mean forever leaving behind their spouses, children, homes and lives. One daughter tearfully explains the hardships many immigrant families endure as a result of this prolonged separation. Ramon, the patriarch of the family, would rather live in Mexico but he longs to reunite with his family, who live 2500 miles away in Los Angeles. In order to visit, they must secure a tourist visa, an expensive and difficult proposition.
    Previous attempts proved unsuccessful but the Chavezes decide to try again after years of postponement. A camera crew follows them step-by-step through the application process, which begins at the US Consulate two hours away in Guadalajara.

    Moyers & Company [#224H] United States of ALEC: A Follow-Up This week, Moyers & Company follows up and expands on a breakthrough 2012 report on the most influential corporate-funded political force most of us have never heard of - ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. A national consortium of state politicians and powerful corporations, ALEC presents itself as a "nonpartisan public-private partnership". But behind that mantra lies a vast network of corporate lobbying and political action aimed to increase corporate profits at public expense without public knowledge.
    Using interviews, documents, and field reporting, the episode explores ALEC's self-serving machine at work, acting in a way one Wisconsin politician describes as "a corporate dating service for lonely legislators and corporate special interests." Updated coverage includes new examples of corporate influence on state legislation and lawmakers, the growing public protest against ALEC's big business-serving agenda, and internal tactics ALEC is instituting to further shroud its actions and intentions.
    Even with increased scrutiny, ALEC's influence continues to grow. In state houses around the country, hundreds of pieces of boilerplate ALEC legislation are proposed or enacted that would, among other things, dilute collective bargaining rights, make it harder for some Americans to vote, and limit corporate liability for harm caused to consumers - each accomplished without the public ever knowing who's behind it.
    "All of us here are very familiar with ALEC and the influence that ALEC has with many of the [legislative] members," says Arizona State Senator Steve Farley. "Corporations have the right to present their arguments, but they don't have the right to do it secretly."
    "United States of ALEC" is a collaboration between Okapi Productions (the filmmakers Tom Casciato and Kathleen Hughes) and the Schumann Media Center, headed by Bill Moyers, which supports independent journalism and public watchdogs including the Center for Media and Democracy, whose investigators are featured in the report.

    Need To Know [#325H] Main Street: Findlay, Ohio How many times during the past several years have you heard one commentator or another express the same familiar lament? "We just don't make anything anymore." Of course, it's not true. Not even close. No country exports more than the United States except China. What is true is that millions of manufacturing jobs have been lost, shipped overseas where labor costs are often dramatically lower.
    And that's had a profound effect on many factory towns across the US, particularly in the industrial heartland - The Midwest. What is the state of American manufacturing today? Is it coming back, as the president says? And will we be able to compete once again?
    To learn more, NTK traveled to Findlay, Ohio, a manufacturing town that is still growing even as towns close by have struggled. Correspondent John Larson reports from Main Street. Maria Hinojosa anchors the broadcast.

    Saving The Ocean [#103H] Destination Baja A remarkable success story of how local fishing people developed a whale-watching co-op that now caters to tourists from all over the world.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2434H] June 21, 2013 Guest Host: Dana King.
    News Panel:
    OPEN RECORDS BATTLE - A move by Gov. Brown to weaken the California Public Records Act set off a heated controversy among journalists and open government advocates this week, followed by back-peddling from top state Democrats. At the core of the debate is whether the state or local governments should foot the bill for requests for government records.
    SAN CLEMENTE DAM REMOVAL - In what will be the largest dam removal project ever undertaken in California, officials have agreed to tear down the 106-foot-tall San Clemente Dam in Monterey County. The reservoir it holds is now 95 percent silted up and the obsolete dam has been declared seismically unsafe. The removal of the dam will also be good for endangered steelhead trout, which for decades have been blocked from their traditional spawning grounds by the enormous barrier on the Carmel River.
    SAN JOSE SUES MLB - The Oakland A's are itching to relocate from their longtime home at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum to a new proposed stadium in downtown San Jose. But Major League Baseball has thus far blocked the move, claiming the San Francisco Giants hold the territorial rights to the South Bay. This week the city of San Jose sued Major League Baseball, challenging the geographic rights in order to allow the A's to make the move south.
    Guests: Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; Mark Purdy, San Jose Mercury News; and Paul Rogers, SJ Mercury News.
    INTERVIEW WITH CONGRESSMAN JARED HUFFMAN - Huffman, a Marin County Democrat, is a cosponsor of the Student Loan Relief Act (HR1595). If Congress doesn't act before July 1, federally subsidized loans are set to double from the current historically low rate of 3.4% to 6.8%. With nearly half of California college students borrowing money to go to school, the hike would mean thousands of dollars more of debt. We hear from Congressman Huffman on efforts being made to freeze the rate.

    Serving America: Memories of Peace Corps This program highlights the experiences of some of the nearly 3000 volunteers who served during the early years of the Peace Corps. A mix of archival film and photographs, along with personal stories from former volunteers, tells a story of service and idealism. Interviews convey the volunteers' passion, commitment and bravery as they lived and worked in developing countries, including South and Central America, Africa and the Middle East. From almost fatal obstacles to spiritual epiphanies, these men and women describe their transformative experiences. Donna Shalala, former US Secretary of Health and Human Services (1993-2001), recounts the adventure of serving in Iran between 1962 and 1964. "What the Peace Corps really did is make me a citizen of the world," says Shalala. duration 26:44   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
