Yeah, I've heard them announcing that on KTLA for awhile, bummer for those who have direct, I love KTLA! Someone, somewhere mentioned Charter was also going to stop carry Channel 6, anybody heard anything on that?

Heard that this morning also. They are advising those with Direct to change providers or get an antenna and pick KTLA off the air

Summer where have you been?

I knew about it and even called Directv the other day. They really don't care what their customers think.

I was bummed when I turn on the TV this morning and my news wasn't on. I'm pissed off and thinking about going to another provider.

I love the KTLA morning news and would suffer with out it. I am glad that Charter doesn't have the same problems as DirectTV does.

Yep...my favorite too! Tomorrow morning is going to suck without it. I'm going to give it a couple of weeks and then if it's not on then...bye bye

usualy they settle these at the last minute We don't get KTLA down here in our local pack but I wish we could. I'm still happier with direct then others I see.
Is Ch 5 available on the internet?

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.


Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world.

I miss my KTLA. But it's all business which means its all about money. We can't get cable and I know TOO many folks unhappy with Dish so I guess we're stuck ....or do what we do more often these days and pull it off the net! :-)

Was heading west on South Dr or took Baldwin North. Lost track when I got binoculars and phone, at least the sun is out.
We had a 59.3 mph gust late last night night, just under an inch of snow. Hard to tell between drifts and wind.

It was where my Dad taught me how to fish with 2 lb. test. Great memories, except all the untangling.

I can only imagine how spooky it would sound at night, with the rocks tumbling into the fresh water.

On the way to the lake there is a rocket skin with NASA painted on it. Prob. from a movie scene. I think one of the state's brown trout records came fom there.

The res. itself is about a qurter mile back from parking. It is a large res. with mostly 50 degree incline of rocks heading to the water. While there, the wind blows rocks into the water.
