Eatonia

Eatonia is a small town in the Province of Saskatchewan, Canada with a population of 449 people. The town's economy is based exclusively on agriculture. Eatonia is in southwest Saskatchewan at the crossroads of Highways 21 and 44 44 kilometers southwest of Kindersley and 72 kilometres from the provincial boundary with Alberta; the town is served by Eatonia Municipal Airport. Eatonia was founded in 1919 as a station on the Canadian National Railway and was named after Timothy Eaton, founder of the Eaton's department store chain and catalogue, to honour his son and heir, John Craig Eaton; the station was simply called "Eaton", but there was confusion with nearby Eston, so the name was changed to Eatonia in 1921. Eatonia was incorporated as a town in 1954. In 1955, the year of Saskatchewan's Golden Jubilee, Eatonia's train station was featured on the cover of the Eaton's catalogue, thus resulting in a classic local image finding its way into homes across the country; the former CN train station is now home to the Wheatland Regional Library.

The former station, along with a train caboose and a wood-frame house ordered from the Eaton's catalogue in 1917, comprise the Eatonia Heritage Park, a 0.6-hectare Municipal Heritage Property located at the south end of Main Street. The population of Eatonia dropped 5.3 % between the 2006 censuses. Eatonia is home to a kindergarten to Grade 12 public school, Eaton School, home to many successful volleyball and football teams throughout its history, it is located within the Sun West School Division.

WLTZ

WLTZ, virtual channel 38, is an NBC-affiliated television station licensed to Columbus, United States and serving the Chattahoochee Valley of west-central Georgia and east-central Alabama. The station is owned by SagamoreHill Broadcasting. WLTZ's studios and transmitter are located on NBC 38 Drive in the Vista Terrace section of East Columbus; the station began broadcasting on October 29, 1970 as WYEA and aired an analog signal on UHF channel 38. It was featured promotions showing a cheerleader with pompoms. WYEA was owned by Huntsville, Alabama broadcaster Charles Grisham and his company, Gala Broadcasting, it brought a full NBC affiliate to Columbus after a full decade in which NBC was limited to off-hours clearances on CBS outlet WRBL and ABC affiliate WTVM. Like most UHF start-ups during this time, WYEA began with several handicaps. First, like all other television markets with one or two dominant VHF stations, the Columbus area had long-established preferences for either WRBL or WTVM, it had to deal with established NBC outlets WSB-TV in Atlanta, WALB in Albany and Montgomery, Alabama's WSFA, all of which provided at least Grade B coverage of the outlying areas of the viewing area.

In fact, Grisham attempted unsuccessfully to block WSFA's plans to build a new tower, fearing it would cut into WYEA's market share. A fire tore through the studios in 1975. In the 1970s, Grisham sold WYEA to locally based insurer AFLAC, making channel 38 the flagship of AFLAC's broadcast division; the outlet added the -TV suffix to its call sign on January 23, 1979. The station continued to be hamstrung as the third station in the market. In 1981, AFLAC sold the station to J. Curtis Lewis, owner of WJCL-TV-FM in Savannah, Georgia, WLTX and WNOK-FM in Columbia, South Carolina, WSTZ-FM-AM in Jackson, Mississippi. AFLAC would not re-enter Columbus television until it bought WTVM in 1989. A 1995 attempt to sell WLTZ to Piney Creek Broadcasting, headed by Ruth Allen Ollison, fell through when a tax certificate program that allowed minorities to buy broadcast stations was ended by Congress. Lewis kept WLTZ until 2007. WLTZ has been digital-only since February 17, 2009. WLTZ-DT2 is the CW+-affiliated second digital subchannel of WLTZ, broadcasting in 720p high definition on UHF channel 35.2.

On cable, the subchannel is available on Charter Spectrum channel 6, WOW! Channel 9, Mediacom channel 12. A high-definition feed is offered on Mediacom digital channel 812 and WOW! Digital channel 907. Origins of WLTZ-DT2 began on April 2, 2009 when it was announced The CW would discontinue its relationship with Pappas Telecasting-owned WLGA. After losing the network, that station added syndicated television shows, it left the air for good in June 2010. WLTZ gained The CW effective April 27 after SagamoreHill made a long term deal with the television network to carry it as a digital subchannel in several markets. In Summer 2012, it upgraded its broadcasting level to 720p high definition. WLTZ-DT3 is the primary Antenna TV and secondary MyNetworkTV affiliated third digital subchannel of WLTZ, broadcasting in standard definition on UHF channel 35.3. In addition to NBC and CW programming, WLTZ operates the Columbus market's Antenna TV affiliate on its DT3 subchannel. On weeknights, WLTZ-DT3 carries shows from the MyNetworkTV programming service, filling in programming for all time slots outside of the MyNetworkTV schedule with the Antenna TV schedule.

The station's digital signal is multiplexed: Syndicated programming on WLTZ includes Steve, Family Feud, The Wendy Williams Show among others. The former two shows are hosted by Steve Harvey himself; the station's first attempt at a news department lasted from its inception in 1970 until 1993. Despite a credible effort, WLTZ's newscasts were never competitive enough against WTVM and WRBL to gain enough viewership and consistent ratings. Columbus broadcast veteran and former nightclub owner Al Fleming was once news anchor of these newscasts as was Richard Elliot. After shutting down its news operation, WLTZ offered syndicated shows with brief news updates taped in advance that ran for three minutes in length. In November 2007, the station brought back weeknight newscasts in partnership with the Independent News Network of Davenport, Iowa; the early evening shows aired in traditional half-hour formats while the late newscast was shown in an update version. The news anchor and sports personality were based at INN's studios on Tremont Avenue in Davenport and other personnel would fill-in when needed.

WLTZ maintained two reporters locally in Columbus that contributed local content to the shows which were taped in advance and transmitted back to the station to air. On May 29, 2008, WLTZ became the first station in Columbus and third in Georgia to upgrade local news to high definition; the change came after INN

Keremeos

Keremeos is a village in the Southern Interior of British Columbia, Canada. The name originated from the Similkameen dialect of the Okanagan language word "Keremeyeus" meaning "creek which cuts its way through the flats" referring to Keremeos Creek which flows down from the Upper Benchlands to the Similkameen River that runs by the village. Local legend claims the name means "the meeting of the winds" and joke that the only time it's calm is when the wind blows from all four directions. Residents abbreviate Keremeos as'K Town'. Keremeos' main industries are horticulture, agriculture and wine making, among others. Fruit stands are a major component of the local economy, making it the self-titled "fruit stand capital of Canada." All sorts of soft fruits, cherries, etc. and vegetables are grown in the South Similkameen's dry warm climate, vineyards and wineries are being added as the valley's wine-growing potential is being recognized. Area attractions include Cathedral Provincial Park, the Red Bridge, the Keremeos Columns, the Keremeos Grist Mill, excellent fishing in area lakes and rivers, Apex Mountain Resort, Twin Lakes Golf Resort, Spotted Lake, the Hedley Mining Museum and the Mascot Mine.

The geography of the Keremeos area ranges from cottonwood groves along the river, to dense orchards and farms, to desert-like landscapes along the bases of the surrounding mountains, up to alpine peaks and plateaux on top. With K Mountain as a backdrop, Keremeos is a community whose "Wild West" looks date back to 1909 when the postmaster of the now-abandoned community of Upper Keremeos, Mr. George Kirby, purchased land alongside the Similkameen River in anticipation of the V. V. & E. Railway passing through the area; the Great Northern Railway from the US built a branch line up to Hedley and other businesses soon followed. Keremeos was incorporated in 1956. Keremeos is served by public transit in the South Okanagan-Similkameen Transit System along Route 50 thrice weekly year round. Buses go as far as Coalmont, British Columbia to the west and Penticton in the East, with connections on BC Transit to Kelowna and Osoyoos; the thrice-weekly public transit service is the only intercity transportation available to residents after Greyhound terminated their services along the Hope, British Columbia-Penticton corridor on June 1st 2019.

The nearest major airport with scheduled flights to Princeton is Kelowna International Airport. Keremeos had a train station, though no tracks remain in the Similkameen Valley with either the Great Northern Railway or the Kettle Valley Railway; the head offices of the Lower Similkameen Indian Band are located in Keremeos. Two of their reserves, Keremeos Forks Indian Reserve Nos. 12 & 12A are located 6–7 miles north of the town towards Kaleden, just south of the Green Mountain Road junction, while Alexis Indian Reserve No. 9 is located about 4 miles west of town on Highway 3.

Seonunsa

Seonunsa is a head temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. It stands on the slopes of Dosolsan in Asan-myeon, Gochang County, near the Yellow Sea coast in western Jeollabuk-do province. Seonunsa Temple was established by Seon Master Geomdan in 577. Several stories have been passed down concerning its establishment. One legend says; as Ven. Geomdan was filling the pond with rocks to drive away the dragons, an eye disease spread through the village; the monk told the villagers that anyone who poured one bag of charcoal into the pond would be healed. People rushed in with bags of charcoal, the pond was soon filled. Ven. Geomdan named the temple Seonun to convey his vision of cultivating Seon dwelling in the clouds. According to the Seonunsa sajeokgi, compiled by Im U-sang in 1794, King Jinheung of the Silla Dynasty came here and established Seonunsa Temple after abdicating the throne, it says that King Jinheung established Jungae-am Hermitage for the eternal repose of Princess Jungae, Dosol-am Hermitage for the eternal repose of Queen Consort Dosol, but these stories lack credibility.

Seonunsa Temple was rebuilt in 1318 by Seon Master Hyojeong, again in 1474 by Seon Master Haengjo. The temple was reduced to ashes during the second Japanese invasion, its reconstruction was undertaken again in 1614 by Seong Seok-jo governor of Mujang County, took five years. Seonunsa Temple owns six items of state-designated heritage: a gilt-bronze seated Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva. In addition, Seonunsa Temple oversees three designated natural monuments: the Forest of Common Camellias, the Jangsasong Pine Tree, Songak Ivy; the temple possesses 19 items of tangible cultural heritage, including the stele of Vinaya Master Baekpa, with an inscription based on the calligraphy of the noted calligrapher Kim Jeong-hui. Naewongung Hall, located at Dosoram Hermitage, is one of three major Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva prayer sites in Korea. Established on top of a steep rock cliff, it attracts numerous pilgrims all year long. Below Naewongung Hall, the stone Buddha bas-relief is carved into the rock cliff. One legend says Seon Master Geomdan hid a secret text in a niche carved around the navel of the Buddha bas-relief and that during the Donghak Peasant Revolution of 1894, one of the rebels removed it.

Above Naewongung is Yongmun Cave, “Dragon Gate Cave,”, said to have been made by the dragon cast out of his pond by Seon Master Geomdan. The stele of Vinaya Master Baekpa is a monument to a great expert in Avatamsaka studies. After Ven. Baekpa died, Kim Jeong-hui, who had debated Seon Buddhism with him, grieved over his death and wrote the content for its inscription. In part it says: “In the past I shared opinions about Seon with Baekpa through repeated correspondence, different from the vain talk of the grape vine. About this only Baekpa and I know the content in full. If I try to tell people about it over and over in ten thousand different ways, no one can understand it; when can I get Baekpa to return and laugh with me once more?” There is a camellia forest behind the main hall of the temple. The trees are 500 years old, are designated by South Korea as a natural monument; the temple is known for its worship of the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, for its annual camellia festival. It offers temple stay programs where visitors can experience Buddhist culture.
