5. Correspondence
Treasurer Blazek reported receiving a donation with a note requesting the History Channel and IFC, and another request for antenna help. Also received 990EZ form from the IRS for last year's channel sale. The instructions seem to suggest that we do not meet the criteria that would require us to file it.

Motion to pay attendance fees for up to four people to go to the annual NTA Convention in Alburquerque, New Mexico, not to exceed $1200.00 with attendees to be decided later, by President Cole. Seconded by Member Manos. Motion carried: 5 ayes, 1 abstain, 3 absent.
E. Discussion items
1. The Daily Independent
Despite sending several press releases to our contact at the Daily Independent over the last year (which went unpublished), it would appear that the Editor was unaware that the TV Booster "was still around". Member Longo gently reminded him of all that's been happening and so the picture of Wal-Mart's recent $250 donation was eventually published. Member Longo suggested that Vice President Middlemiss should see that the Editor gets a copy of our annual newsletter.
F. Closure
1. Next meeting: 5:00 PM, May 1, 2006, Kern County Library, Ridgecrest
2. Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 6:08 PM.
