dren in chapel for Christmas carol-
ing. The Highland students were
each matched with one of the chil-
dren there, and spent a lot of time
together that weekend.
It was time to give out the gifts.
The Highland students were so
touched at how happy and excited
all the children were.
“It was an experience that has
changed Christmas for all of us at
Highland. Their facial expressions
stood out to me. they were happy
despite their circumstances,” said
11th grader Eric Russell.
“Mexico was an experience I
will always remember and I was
blessed to have been able to share
Christmas with these children,”
said 12th grader Justine Roberts.
“Going to Mexico was a life
changing experience. It was great
to get the chance to bless someone
else,” said 9th grader Amber
“Mexico was an awesome
encounter. Being able to go and
see what a close-knit family the
children had become, in spite of
their circumstances was a true
blessing. I loved playing with the
children and blessing them with

Cable ONE May Be
Forced To DROP Kill
Aransas Pass TX, Dec. 19, 2005 - Cable ONE will be forced to drop
ABC station Kill from its programming line-up beyond December
31st. Kill refuses permission for Cable ONE to continue to carry their
signals. The conflict has resulted from a fee demand from Kill.
Kill demands that Cable ONE start paying a new per subscriber
charge over the next three years for rights to carry their programming.
In the past, Kill has always been free to Cable ONE and their cus-
“We’d be very disappointed if we can’t continue to carry Kill,” said
David King, System Manager. “Cable ONE customers have always
received broadcast signals without an additional charge. This is
because Kill is available free, over-the-air, to consumers. We believe
free TV should be free and cable customers should not be forced to
pay for free TV.”
“We were willing to meet the demands of Kill by providing them
compensation that is mutually beneficial to both Cable ONE and
Kill. In fact, we have offered them advertising money and promotion
materials that are more than their monetary demands. However, they
are only wanting cash and aren’t willing to negotiate other options.”
Since 1992, television stations have been allowed by Congress to
grant or deny permission for cable television systems to carry their
signals. This right comes up for renewal every three years, with Kill’s
current agreement with Cable ONE expiring at the end of the year.
“Kill is forcing us to drop their station even though Cable ONE is
providing a service to the community by delivering their program-
ming,” Kind said. “We have always enhanced their product by pro-
viding a better signal and stronger picture. Now they want Cable
ONE and our customers to pay; even though we provide them better
reception and viewership.”
Cable ONE, the cable division of The Washington Post Company,
operates 52 cable systems serving 700,000 subscribers in 19 states.
