From the Falmouth Fire Department, February 14th, 2014: A strong coastal storm will impact eastern New England with snow on Saturday into Sunday. Southern stream energy will spawn a surface low over the mid Atlantic states on Saturday. This system will intensify rapidly as it moves to a position east of Cape Cod early Sunday morning. Snow amounts remain strongly in question at this hour. The speed of the surface low and how fast it gets going will determine our ultimate affects.

This April, as Town Meeting members debate the Town and public school budgets, funding and support for the construction of a new sports complex and turf field at Falmouth High School, the new Senior Center feasibility study and funding the design and construction of a water treatment facility, as well as many other articles, FCTV’s live coverage will provide a front row seat to all the action.
Falmouth Community Television (FCTV) recently began cablecasting the Audible Local Ledger’s readings of the Falmouth Enterprise and the Cape Cod Times on Public Channel 13. With this action, FCTV aims to support the Audible Local Ledger’s mission of bringing localized readings of news and items of interest to the listening public so that, anyone with a visual impairment or physical disability that makes reading difficult, are empowered to live their lives with the greatest possible personal independence.
FCTV's video server has been sent out for repairs and we are expecting it back by Friday. There will be limited programs re-played on both Channels 13 and 15 until the server is returned. Live programs will go on as scheduled on Government Channel 15.
Congratulations to Marilyn Rowland, a longtime FCTV member and producer, for being awarded the second annual Priscilla “Pucky” Roslansky Memorial Fund Award. Rowland’s video submission entitled “Lawanna Lynn Campbell: Is She Dead Yet?” is a recording of a discussion, sponsored by the Cape Cod Center for Women, on the topic of domestic violence that took place at the Public Falmouth Library on October 26, 2013. Rowland’s supporting submission, “One Billion Rising”, documents a growing group of women recognizing violence against women and working to help victims heal around the world. These two programs, currently available for viewing on Public Channel 13 and at fctv.org, demonstrate Rowland’s dedication to promoting important topics within the Falmouth community.
