Himpe, Don & Sam Maciag - May 11, 2015 - Tell Me Something Good & John Gormley is back!

Big Breakfast Question of the Morning: Have you ever witnessed a speech that would not end – for their own sake?

HOUR ONE

Happy Monday Morning! The 2015 season is finally over the Calgary Flames as they came up one goal short against the Anaheim Ducks last night in overtime of Game 5. The Ducks are now through to the Conference Final in the West. Police in Mississippi have arrested three people after two police officers were fatally shot during a traffic stop in the city of Hattiesburg. The suspects are 26 and 29-year old brothers; along with a woman who authorities say was behind the wheel of the vehicle that was stopped. There has been some crazy weather in the States from flooding and snow hitting Colorado to tornadoes touching down in the Midwest and in Texas and a tropical storm struck South Carolina. Elizabeth May says she’s sorry for giving a rambling, profanity-laced speech at Ottawa’s annual press gallery dinner, blaming her performance on a strenuous travel schedule that left her tired and with little time for preparation ahead of the Saturday night event. And the Muppets are coming back to the weekly TV schedule!

HOUR TWO

Last hour we shared with you the story of Lizzie May and he train-wreck of a speech – we go over your texts to 306-306 on the time you saw someone sink a speech. What started as a normal traffic stop ended with two police officers dead and three people arrested. A vigil will be held this afternoon for the slain officers. The U-S heartland is picking up the pieces from a weekend of powerful thunderstorms that spawned dozens of tornadoes, a tropical storm, flooding and even snow. It’s time for some good news with Tell Me Something Good – where we bring you some feel good news stories to help put a smile on your face and put some pep in your step. John Gormley returns this morning! We finally get the chance to ask him what Saskatchewan has been dying to know – what he thinks of the NDP winning Alberta. We find out how his trip went, as well find out what his first show back will cover.

HOUR THREE

Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan and Red Wings coach Mike Babcock will meet with each other this week at the world hockey championship. The exact time and date for the discussion is yet to be determined, but a source close to both told the Star the Leafs are very much a long shot in the Babcock sweepstakes and that the Wings coach is calling all the shots in terms of who he talks to and when. The head of the Green party admits in retrospect, that her funny speech wasn't funny. Elizabeth May is apologizing after using profanity and insulting the federal cabinet over its treatment of Omar Khadr, who was freed on bail last week. It started as a traffic stop and ended in a hail of gunfire, now a vigil will be held this afternoon for two Mississippi Officers killed during that traffic stop. The mayor says this is the first time in 30 years an office has been killed in the line of duty. By yesterday afternoon, police had arrested four people in connection with the killings. We replay our conversation with John Gormley this morning. And finally, What I Learned on the Show Today!

Big Breakfast Question of the Morning: Why does your mom deserve to be the Mother of the Year?

HOUR ONE

Omar Khadr is a free man, an Alberta Court of Appeal judge ruled against the federal government in its bid to block the former Guantanamo Bay prisoner from being released. The now 28-year-old Omar Khadr hasn't been free since his capture as a wounded 15-year-old in Afghanistan. The Montreal Canadiens are still alive in the playoffs after a much needed win against Tampa Bay last night; the Wild weren’t so lucky and were swept by Chicago. We bring you today’s Celebrity Birthdays, and if it’s your Birthday – Happy Birthday! This weekend is Mothers Day but when you celebrate the mothers of today, remember your own mother. We want to know why you mom deserves Mom of the Year. Time is money, and Leslie Ellins wants a refund for hers, literally.

Our Big Breakfast Question of the Morning is does your mom deserve to be the Mother of the Year; we take your texts to 306-306. The first team to advance to NHL's final four is Chicago.

It’s Movie Friday and we let you know what’s new and hot at the box office to take in this weekend. We take more of your texts to 306-306 on why your mom deserves to be Mom of the Year. And finally, What I Learned on the Show Today!

Big Breakfast Question of the Morning: What do Mom’s REALLY want for Mother’s Day?

HOUR ONE

If you want to pay to have an MRI done privately in Saskatchewan you'll soon have that option. Health Minister Dustin Duncan introduced the unique legislation yesterday. He says for every scan a patient pays for the private company will also have to do a second scan for somebody off the public wait list at no extra charge. Communities south and west of Swift Current are without cell, landline or internet service after a fire in Gull Lake early Wednesday. The fire was not on SaskTel property, but damaged a fibre optic line. Technicians are working to restore service. A time has not been established for when that service will resume. We bring you today’s Celebrity Birthdays, and if it’s your birthday – Happy Birthday! Those of you who have been part of the News Talk family know of the infamous ‘Shame Lady’ from the John Gormley Live Show – now Alberta’s 770 News Talk in Calgary appears to have their own. A report that came out yesterday has determined that Deflate Gate before the Super Bowl actually was a thing – we give you the details. And the Riders are changing the way they do season tickets.

HOUR TWO

They hinted towards it last fall on John Gormley Live, now the Wall Government is doing it. Law is being introduced to give patients the option of paying a private company to have an MRI done. NDP Health Critic Danielle Chartier says it benefits the rich. Severe storms roared through the Midwest, unleashing tornadoes, rain and golf ball-size hail, and shutting down the main airport in Oklahoma City. Flooding and heavy winds hit parts of Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska on Wednesday night. And for those who want to help our neighbours in Alberta, Jill and Dave found the perfect way. It’s time for the good news with Tell Me Something Good!

And changes are coming to Rider Season Tickets.

HOUR THREE

This morning we are asking for what moms REALLY want for Mother’s Day, we go over your texts to 306-306. The evidence listed in Wednesday's "Deflate Gate" report found that "it is more probable than not" that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was "at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities" of locker room attendant Jim McNally and equipment assistant John Jastremski. If you have the money, you'll soon have the choice of getting an MRI from a private company here in Saskatchewan. Health Minister Dustin Duncan introduced new law, and it does not impress the opposition. Our friends at News Talk 770 in Calgary got a mouth full from caller “Judy” after the NDP win – we have the audio for you. And finally, What I Learned on the Show Today!

Himpe, Don & Sam Maciag - May 6, 2015

HOUR ONE

A lot of people expected the NDP to do well in last night's Alberta elections, but few expected this. The New Democrats won by a landslide, toppling a 44 year long Progressive Conservative dynasty. Party leader Rachel Notley ran on a campaign of job creation through tax incentives, promoting oil-refining jobs at home and restoring cuts to health care and schools. Notley easily won her Edmonton riding and will be the province's 17th premier. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are set for the 2015 season. In their annual season preview teleconference, head coach Corey Chamblin says change was necessary over the off-season after releasing, trading players and doing a complete overhaul on the coaching staff. We bring you today’s Celebrity Birthdays, and if it’s your birthday – Happy Birthday! Voters in Alberta made history last night. Rachel Notley and the N-D-P secured a majority government with the Wildrose as the official opposition – with 10 seats. Jim Prentice resigned, both as party leader and MLA. The Tories had been in power in Alberta since 1971, the longest reign of any party anywhere in Canada. The Flames stayed unbeaten at home this NHL post-season and trail the Ducks two games to one in their best-of-seven Western Conference quarter-final series. And we take your texts to 306-306!

HOUR TWO

And the sun still rose this morning in Alberta without the Conservative Party at the lead – Rachel Notley and the NDP pulled off a landslide win, demolishing the 44 year long blue dynasty. Jim Prentice announced his resignation from public life shortly after the votes were tallied – even though he won his seat in the house. We fill you in on how the CRTC changes to roaming changes will affect you. The ruling asks Ottawa to repeal legislation that limits what those small carriers can charge the big players to use their wireless networks. We take your texts to 306-306! There was another huge win in Alberta last night; the Calgary Flames defeated the Ducks at home with a win of 4-3.

Murray Wood is in for John Gormley – he joins in studio to talk about the NDP win in Alberta and share what’s coming up on his show.

HOUR THREE

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are set for the 2015 season. Head Coach Corey Chamblin says the moves made this off-season were made to ensure they didn't have the drop off if one of their stars got hurt, like Darian Durant did last season. We are joined by News Talk 770 Calgary’s News Director, Joe MacFarland who recaps what last night’s whirlwind victory for the NDP. A huge must have victory for the Flames last night at home; they took the Ducks 4-3 in overtime. Our Dave Arnold has been In Alberta the last couple days and tells us what the environment was like leading up to last night’s election. And finally, What I Learned on the Show Today!

The crash caused the car then move forward, hitting a dodge truck, which in turn struck a highway flag person.

HOUR TWO

It's the first ISIS attack on US soil or is it? ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack outside the Prophet Mohammed cartoon contest in Garland, Texas -- and warned of more attacks to come. In a broadcast on its official radio channel Tuesday, the group said two Al Khilafa soldiers attacked the event. Al Khilafa is how ISIS refers to its soldiers. May the 5th will always be known as Liberation Day to the people of Netherlands. 70 years ago Canadian soldiers liberated the Netherlands from German occupation. Today the Dutch celebrate liberation day welcoming back the veterans who freed them so long ago. In the spring of 1945 John Sheppard was one of the boots on the ground fighting for the liberation of Netherlands. This week he is an honoured guest in that town where he fought a battle on April 6 1945. He didn't cry when prosecutors showed graphic pictures of his victims, but Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev cried. Tsarnaev wiped tears from his face as his aunt sobbed uncontrollably on the witness stand. It’s time for the good news with Tell Me Something Good!

HOUR ONE

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge, the wife of Prince William, gave birth to a girl on Saturday, the couple's second child and a great grand-daughter to Queen Elizabeth. The royal family's newest member was born at 8:34 a.m., two and a half hours after she was admitted in the early stages of labor to St Mary's Hospital. On Friday, a number of business owners gathered to tell reporters what they thought of what appears to be an NDP surge in the polls ahead of tomorrow's vote in Alberta. All the businessmen - all Tory supporters - went on about how they believed that Rachel Notley would spell disaster for the Alberta economy. We bring you today’s Celebrity Birthdays and if it’s your birthday, Happy Birthday!

HOUR ONE

How did Freddy Gray die? We have conflicting stories from the Police Commissioner in Baltimore – who claims Gray was attempting to hurt himself in the police van, trashing himself about. That does not jive with the statement given by the other prisoner, who was also being transported in that same vehicle; he says something much darker is at works in Baltimore. A new “Global News Ipsos" poll out says that the NDP are in the lead heading in to next Tuesday's provincial election in Alberta. However, only 52 per cent of those who chose a party to support say they’re “dead set” in their vote, while 48 per cent said they “still haven’t fully made up their mind” and could switch to another party. We bring you today’s Celebrity Birthdays, and if it’s your birthday – Happy Birthday! LEGO stores have some very strict rules, included no unaccompanied minors – that means anyone under 12 has to have an adult with them.

HOUR TWO

It’s Mayweather VS Pacquiao and the fight is generating record revenue for a boxing bout. But much of that is down to the pent-up demand created by six years of negotiations over money, quarrels between television networks, and delays over drugs testing. How did Freddy Gray die? We have conflicting stories from the Police Commissioner in Baltimore – who claims Gray was attempting to hurt himself in the police van, trashing himself about. That does not jive with the statement given by the other prisoner, who was also being transported in that same vehicle; he says something much darker is at works in Baltimore. Social media is all abuzz that the Apple Watch sensor that measures heart rate does not work well on some users that have tattoos on their wrists.

Murray Wood steps in for John Gormley to share what’s coming up on his show.

An eleven and a half-year-old was detained for entering a Lego Store without his parents. The boy had got his own money together and was excited to buy LEGO with his own money, until he was detained for not being accompanied by a parent – the store has a rule (that’s not posted) saying anyone under 12 has to be companied by an adult. It’s time now for Woodsy's Little Heroes where we shine a spotlight on one young athlete each month and this month, Ella Toles isn't afraid to hit the track for a little Roller Derby.

Police have reached out to the renter of the property and the Crown is exploring pursuing charges of mischief to property over $5,000. Nepal’s government is encouraging people to go ahead with their plans to climb Mount Everest. Officials plan to re-open the routes up the avalanche-stricken mountain as early as next week.

We start this morning by update you on the outgoing struggle in Baltimore. It was a quiet night Tuesday night, a far cry from Monday’s violent riots. Many protestors refused to leave at 10pm when the city wide curfew went into effect – 10 people were arrested, but police are calling the situation stable. International aid reached some remote earthquake-affected areas in Nepal on Wednesday, as the death toll rose to more than 5,000 four days after the disaster struck. There's a rush to get out of Kathmandu. Thousands of people are trying to flee - some trying to head out to the remote districts to see how their families are, others including tourists trying to head towards India by road. We bring you today’s Celebrity Birthdays! When 25 year old Toya Graham saw her 16 year old son Michael in the crowds in West Baltimore with his hood up - face covered in a mask - and being part of the melee, she wasn't having any of it.

HOUR ONE

Nepal is facing a humanitarian crisis as tens of thousands left homeless by the quake are living in the open without clean water or sanitation. Officials have put the death toll at 4,400. But according to the country's prime minister it could reach 10,000. Our province is doing what it can to help those suffering after the devastating earthquake struck Nepal, it's sending a quarter-million dollars in relief money. There is unrest in Baltimore after a peaceful funeral for Freddie Gray. He is the man who died in police custody over one week ago, the circumstances surrounding his death are still suspicious. The incident stemmed from a flier that circulated widely among city school students via social media about a” purge” to take place at 3 p.m., starting at Mondawmin Mall and ending downtown. People in Regina who park vehicles on a front lawn may soon be hearing from a bylaw enforcement officer. The city has made bylaw changes to make enforcement easier. The change was approved last night. It should make it clearer what is and is not allowed when it comes to a front driveway. And Apple released their earnings yesterday – it will make your jaw drop.

HOUR TWO

The search and rescue continues in Nepal. The country's Prime Minister says the death toll from Saturday's massive earthquake could get to 10,000. Right now, the official death toll is over 5,000. Baltimore looks more like a war zone this morning -- overnight fires, rioting and looting. The city is under a state of emergency. 15 police officers were hurt -- two-dozen people arrested. Rioting started just hours after the funeral for Freddie Gray -- the young black man who died of a spinal injury, a week after being taken into police custody. And we take your feedback to 306-306 on Regina City Council’s decision to ban parking on your front lawn. Rescue workers from across the glove are delivering aid are still having trouble reaching the remote communities in Nepal. The death toll from Saturday’s earthquake has now surpassed 5,000.
