13th Annual St. Jean ATV Derby Set to Kick Off This Weekend

Many of us enjoy spending time on trails riding or driving an ATV. A huge bunch of ATV'ers will be in St Jean this weekend for the annual ATV derby which has really taken off in recent years. Mike Gilmore is one of the organizers, and as he told the CFAM morning show, the event has grown significantly, and benefited many community organizations in St Jean. CFAM news team member Cory Knutt attended the 2013 Derby and left us these video impressions

The Release of Burning Ember: The Steve Bell Journey

Many of Manitoba's musical bright lights gathered at the Metropolitan Entertainment Centre last night to pay tribute to one of Manitoba's most popular and enduring musicians. Al Simmons, Don Amero, Jaylene Johnson and others joined Steve Bell, who is celebrating 25 years as a solo artist in 2014. It's a milestone that is also being recognized with the release of the documentary, Burning Ember, the Steve Bell Journey. Al Friesen was part of last night's VIP screening, and caught up with Director Andrew Wall of Refuge 31 films. Andrew shared how he first came to know Steve, and feel the story was worth telling

Aaron Burnett and Don Amero, who will tour with Steve this fall, were also at last night's screening

It was the end of an era this past weekend. Over 30 years of the MCC Relief and Auction Sale held in Morris. Saturday turned out to be a pretty decent day for the final sale.
