Marianas Trench Coming to Moose Jaw!

Earlier this month, Marianas Trench was forced to postpone the start of their Last Crusade tour and cancel their show in Medicine Hat that was set for November 9. But we have some very exciting news about Josh Ramsay and the rest of the band to share today!

This morning, we announced that Marianas Trench will bring the tour to Moose Jaw's Mosaic Place on February 3rd! If you had planned to go to the cancelled show in Medicine Hat, there will be a chance to see them after all, a little bit closer to home!

Tickets go on sale on Friday, November 18th, at or by calling 306-694-2050... but we're giving you a chance to beat the box office! Listen for the cue to call every day this week for your chance to get into Friday morning's draw to get a pair of tickets before anyone else in Swift Current to see Marianas Trench live and in person in Moose Jaw!

School Bus Driver Appreciation Day

Today is School Bus Driver Appreciation day and we had a chance to speak with bus drivers with Rillings Bus and asked what they loved most about being a bus driver. We also had a chance to speak with some of the kids at Central School & École Centenial School asking what they loved most about their bus drivers.

The Bus Drivers get the kids from point A to B and they do it with a smile and through all kinds of weather and they do it safely. When doing the video we learned that the kids share so much with their bus drivers about their day or weekend and they are their family away from home. You can tell that the bus drivers care about each and every single child on their bus!

A big THANK YOU to all the School Bus Drivers !!

Marianas Trench Concert Cancelled

We have some bad news for Marianas Trench fans who had planned to see them in concert in Medicine Hat or Saskatoon or were hoping to win tickets next week.

The band announced on Friday they are postponing the start of their Last Crusade tour, including shows at the Canalta Centre on November 9 and the SaskTel Centre on November 10. Marianas Trench lead singer Josh Ramsay continues to recover from a throat infection that forced them to cancel part of a European tour earlier this month. The show in Saskatoon has been rescheduled to February 6, 2017, but the band was unable to reschedule the concert in Medicine Hat.

The following is a personal note from Josh posted by the band

“No one is more disappointed about this than I am… Unfortunately, we must postpone some of our upcoming tour dates. My throat infection and resulting scar tissue is serious enough that my doctor's diagnosis was for me to not sing a note until the New Year. However, I can't handle this forcing me to cancel a second tour in a row completely, so I've chosen to postpone the first half of the tour to give my voice a little extra time to recuperate. With enough vocal rest and medicine, I should be back in fighting shape in no time. Unfortunately we weren’t able to reschedule all the shows, and we’ll have to see our fans in Sault Ste. Marie and Medicine Hat a little further down the road!”

Tickets for the November 10 show in Saskatoon will be honoured on the new concert date of February 6.

Meanwhile, refunds will be available to those who purchased tickets to the cancelled Medicine Hat concert. If you bought those tickets online or over the phone with a credit card, the refund should be automatically applied to your card. If you bought them from the Canalta Centre Box Office, you need to travel to Medicine Hat and return your tickets to the box office (2802 Box Springs Way NW) to receive your refund. You can call the Canalta Centre at 403-905-0050 if you have any questions.

Also, because of the concert cancellation, our Marianas Trench ticket giveaway, "We're Puzzled… Where's Colin", will not be going ahead as planned on Monday. We were looking forward to giving you a chance to win tickets to the show, and we're sorry that we have to cancel this contest. However, we hope to try it again soon for a different prize, so stay tuned!

Smile Cookies are Back!

It was a cold, rainy start to the week (and it's going to freeze tonight, so cover your plants), but we helped put a smile on everyone's face in the southwest this morning!

Smile Cookies are back at both Tim Hortons restaurants in Swift Current (North Service Road East and at 1st Ave NW & Chaplin St). The cookies cost $1.00, plus GST, and your full dollar from every cookie sold will stay in Swift Current to support the local KidSport chapter, which aims to help all kids take part in sports.

Tim Hortons Owner/Operator Pete Fehr and KidSport's Rich Bissonette were in studio this morning to launch Smile Cookie week.

The cookies are available only to Sunday, while supplies last, so make sure to add one to your coffee break at Tims this week to help out KidSport!

We'll also be broadcasting live from the downtown Tim Hortons on Wednesday morning from 10:00am to 12:00 noon as a part of Smile Cookie week!
