The Christmas Spirit Alive in October

Fall into Christmas was held in Swift Current on the weekend, which again brought a large number of vendors and shoppers into the Stockade Building at Kinetic Exhibition Park. Christmas may be a little under three months away, but it was a good way to get into the holiday spirit on what was a rainy, cool weekend.

Another thing that could make you think about Christmas is a little bit of snow, which the Cypress Hills got on Sunday.


It was a rainy weekend in much of the southwest, but in the Cypress Hills, it snowed!Are you ready for the white stuff?

Snow in October anywhere in Saskatchewan certainly isn't unheard of. My grandfather once said "You can't count on a white Christmas, but you can almost always get a white Thanksgiving around here."

It looks like the weather will actually be great for the Thanksgiving long weekend, and Magic 97's 10th Anniversary celebration. Join us on October 10th at 10:00am from Market Square for cake, a barbecue and some special guests, as well as the grand finale to Making Magic, where you could win a $3000 CAA Travel Voucher sponsored by Canadian Tire!

Scarlett Jane visits Magic 97

Scarlett Jane, the duo of Andrea Ramolo and Cindy Doire, performed at the Lyric Theatre on Friday night as part of the Blenders Concert Series.

Before their show, they made a visit to the Magic 97 studio to chat with Tracey and perform live.

Keeping Healthcare Strong in the Southwest

Today is day one of the Pharmasave "Your Family's Health" Radiothon, which will be broadcast live on Country Music Radio from Cypress Regional Hospital starting from 1:00pm today through 5:00pm Friday afternoon.

The money raised in the radiothon will support the Dr. Noble Irwin Regional Healthcare Foundation and their "A Welcome Home" campaign, which aims to furnish the new Long-Term Care Facility that is under construction in Swift Current. The goal for the radiothon is to raise enough money to furnish one of the 10-bedroom houses at the facility with completely new equipment. You can see what the rooms could look like by taking a tour of a mock-up of the facility at Walker Place in Swift Current, which can be arranged by calling the Cypress Health Region.

This will be the sixth year for the Radiothon which has helped provide the Cypress Regional Hospital with state-of-the-art equipment, including a digital mammography machine, a CT scanner, and a holmium pulse laser, that has helped recruit and retain health professionals to the southwest and keep patients here at home.

You can contribute to the radiothon by calling 306-773-0666, or in person at the lobby of Cypress Regional Hospital.

Space is Awesome!

The world was treated to a celestial masterpiece on Sunday with a rare total eclipse of a supermoon, called a "Super Blood Moon." It was the last eclipse of this kind until 2033, so lots of people were out to catch a glimpse and take some good shots.

I got these photos from the cutbanks Sunday evening.

The moon was still very bright as I was walking to work Monday morning.

Kelly Clarkson in Saskatoon Cancelled

Some very bad news for Kelly Clarkson fans this weekend.

Earlier in September, Kelly had to cancel her tour dates through the end of the month after she was ordered to take vocal rest by her doctors. On Friday, she announced that she had to stay on vocal rest, and will be cancelling the rest of her tour, including the show with Nick Jonas and Tyler Shaw at Saskatoon's SaskTel Centre on October 10th.

Here is what Kelly posted on her Facebook Page:

Kelly Cancel

We're certainly hoping that Kelly gets lots of rest and gets back to singing soon!

In the meantime, if you purchased a ticket for the concert, refunds will be available. If you bought your tickets with a credit card, the refund will be automatically applied to the card.

It's Time to Fall Into Christmas Again!

It's almost time to start that Christmas shopping again, and you can get a good jump on it when Fall into Christmas returns to Swift Current October 3rd & 4th. A wide variety of handcraft and art vendors will pack into the Stockade Building at Kinetic Exhibition Park for a one-stop Christmas gift shop for one weekend only!

To help you get ready for Fall into Christmas, we've got 12 prizes from a number of vendors at the show, and we're putting a holiday twist to a popular summer contest to give them away. Starting Monday, we're bringing back "Fair Fact or Fiction" as "Christmas Fact or Fiction!" Listen every morning at 7:20am for the cue to call and we'll tell you something about everyone's favourite holiday.
