Next Avenue Growing Bolder: December Episodes

As your PBS station, it is KLRU’s mission to bring people together around important issues. KLRU does this through various educational and outreach initiatives.  Our newest effort is a national collaboration called Next Avenue that features resources and an online discussion of issues facing those 50+. As part of that project we are also airing, Growing Bolder Sundays at 10:30 am on KLRU. Growing Bolder delivers empowering stories that inspire audiences of all ages to believe that it’s never too late to achieve their dreams. It features stories of masters athletes, cancer survivors, musicians, health experts, entrepreneurs and more.

Upcoming episodes:

12/2: “On A Mission”
The Father of Juicing Fights Back – He’s 87, still vibrant and still on a mission. Just don’t call Jay Kordich the Juiceman anymore. A legal battle took the name from him but not his spirit or his conviction. He believes raw juices saved his life more than 60 years ago. See why he’s been shouting it to the world ever since. Life Lessons From Coach Bill – Growing Bolder Vice President Bill Shafer spends his days guiding the GB team and his nights and weekends molding lives on his son’s youth hockey team. We followed Coach Bill and his team as they battled for a spot in their league’s championship and discovered what they learned off the ice may be more important than any final score at the rink. Man on a Mission – Mr. Bill is on a very serious crusade; to improve the lives of families in need. His job at the Second Harvest Food Bank in Orlando, Florida, is often back-breaking work, but Mr. Bill does it all with a smile. Hear what keeps him going.

12/9: “True Grit”
What’s SUP? – We had to know what’s SUP after receiving an email that read, “At 46 years old, I took a BOLD move, quit my 19+ year safe and secure job with the Florida Lottery and started living my dream.” That got our attention. We had to know more. We found a family living their dreams and helping others discover a new FUN way of exercising — at any age. Eclectic Collector – Everybody likes to collect things, but what if those things get out of hand? What if they take over everything? Audrey Lentz has always had an eye for things that please her. From Howdy Doody to the present day, from pinball to pez, she has an amazing collection. But what sets her apart is, her home… her ENTIRE home is her display case! True Grit – From the outside looking in, Tom Ross has it all — a high-powered job, Broadway plays in New York and downhill runs in Utah. From the inside looking out, the view is much different. When he came to a crossroads in life, he chose to start growing bolder.

12/16: “Gospel of Good”
From Broadway to Busts – Lawrence Holofcener wrote for Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows,” Sammy Davis Jr. and Merv Griffin. After becoming one of the top songwriters around, he decided to walk away and take another risk — he wanted to be an actor. Not only did he become an actor, he made his debut on Broadway in “Stop the World, I Want to Get Off.” He even went on to star in “Hello, Dolly!” with Carol Channing and in “Fiddler on the Roof.” Now, at the age of 85, he’s a respected painter and sculptor. One of his most famous pieces is a tourist destination in London. He’s used two simple words to guide him through his amazing life: why not? Gospel of Good – With the daily news filled with stories of unethical businessmen and out-of-control corporate greed, we’re happy to shine the light on a Fortune 500 company and a retired CEO who are proving that giving back is the best way to move forward. The Most Vibrant 107-Year-Old in the World – At 107, Wilhelmina Hoorn raises the bar of what’s possible to a whole new level! Come celebrate her birthday with a woman who has lived around the world and seen great hardships and great joy. Plus, her birthday is made even more special by the fact that she gets to celebrate it with five generations of her family, including her three feisty daughters — all in their 80s themselves.

12/23: “Born To Dance”
With the Greatest of Ease – 67-Year-Old Joe Johnston is a champion at track and field, and the pole vault is his specialty. He flies through the air with the greatest of ease, but he’s no circus performer. Joe says he has the secret to life, and he’s sharing it with Growing Bolder. So She Thought She Could Dance – Thanks to the popularity of dance shows on network TV, dance studios around the country are busier than they’ve been in decades. Many more people would love to take lessons but worry about embarrassing themselves. By all accounts, Quin Bommelje was so bad when she first started, her teacher and even her husband couldn’t bear to watch. She had a hard time to keeping time to the beat. Now, her younger dance partner has a hard time keeping up with her! Final Resting Place – It’s art. It’s a memorial. It’s grandma’s cremated remains! We’re all about living and normally wouldn’t cover the National Funeral Directors Convention, but we heard the industry is changing rapidly. We promise, this story isn’t depressing. A little weird? Yeah, we’ll give you that. From launching your loved one’s ashes into space to tucking them into the barrel of a hunting fan’s shotgun, we’ll give you unusual ideas for a final resting place.

12/30: “Take Second Chances”
Famous Face – His life was one of abuse and rejection. The more he suffered, the stronger his resolve. No one believed in him, until a chance meeting with a fledgling talk show host changed everything. Now, after 20 years as Oprah Winfrey’s personal makeup artist, Reggie Wells is set to soar. Roderick Sewell – Just a few years ago, Roderick Sewell was a homeless teenager with no legs who was failing school. Today, he’s a world-class athlete, attends college and he’s set his sights on a big goal — making the Paralympics team. His life started turning around when he got involved with the Challenged Athletes Foundation, an organization that not only provides running legs for disabled athletes — it provides a pathway to a successful life. Second Chance at Life – At age 68, Larry Pontius had a life expectancy counted in single-digit days. Even the smallest things reminded him of his own mortality — commercials for a football season he might never see; pictures of places he might never get to visit. Then came a life-changing call.

Hutto spent each day out and about as a “wild turkey” with his family of chicks until the day came when he had to let his children grow up and go off on their own.

NOVA “Ancient Computer” at 8 pm
In 1900, a storm blew a boatload of sponge divers off course and forced them to take shelter by the tiny Mediterranean island of Antikythera. Diving the next day, they discovered a 2,000 year-old Greek shipwreck. Among the ship’s cargo they hauled up was an unimpressive green lump of corroded bronze. Rusted remnants of gear wheels could be seen on its surface, suggesting some kind of intricate mechanism. The first X-ray studies confirmed that idea, but how it worked and what it was for puzzled scientists for decades. Recently, hi-tech imaging has revealed the extraordinary truth: this unique clockwork machine was the world’s first computer. An array of 30 intricate bronze gear wheels, originally housed in a shoebox-size wooden case, was designed to predict the dates of lunar and solar eclipses, track the Moon’s subtle motions through the sky, and calculate the dates of significant events such as the Olympic Games. No device of comparable technological sophistication is known from anywhere in the world for at least another 1,000 years. So who was the genius inventor behind it? And what happened to the advanced astronomical and engineering knowledge of its makers? NOVA follows the ingenious sleuthing that finally decoded the truth behind the amazing ancient Greek computer.

NOVA ScienceNow “Can I Eat That?” at 9 pm
What are the secrets behind your favorite foods? Why are some treats – like chocolate chip cookies – delectable, while others – like cookies made with mealworms – disgusting? You may think you understand what makes something sweet, salty or bitter, but David Pogue gets a taste of a much more complicated truth as he ventures into labs and kitchens where everything from apple pie to Thanksgiving turkey to juicy grasshoppers is diced, sliced, dissected and put under the microscope. If scientists can uncover exactly what’s behind the mouth-watering flavors and textures we take for granted every day, could they help us enjoy our food more – without packing on the pounds?
