As we come up to Radio Noon, a new total for the Harvest of Hope: $50,893.06. Not sure where the extra six cents came from, but every little bit helps.
Just started Radio Noon with Marilyn Maki and already jumped in the total: $53,763! Way to go Manitoba!
The Salvation Army in Manitoba says it has seen a 35 to 40 percent jump in the number of people coming for help this year over last year.
Even more alarming, the organization says there has been more than a 50 percent spike in people asking for help because they can't pay their hydro bill.
New total for Harvest: $54,613.06. How's that for Hope?
Radio Noon brought our total up to $65,618. Congratulations Manitoba. But we have not yet finished. Be sure to join Larry Updike on Up to Speed from 3 to 6 today to make that total go through the roof.
... and the donations continue to rise. Now at $66,913 and climbing. The question may soon become, not "Will we beat last year?", but rather "By how much?"
Up to Speed with Larry Updike

Lunar eclipse appeared over Winnipeg skies this morning. Scott Young from the Manitoba Museum Planetarium says at one point both the moon and sun were visible at the same time, even though they were 180 degrees apart, because the atmosphere distorts our view of the skies like a lens.
Local professional photographers are lending their talents today to the Hope Portraits project in Winnipeg. Winnipeggers who might not be able to afford portraits otherwise can come to Agape Table, Win Gardner Place or Siloam Mission today to get their portrait taken and printed on the spot. Volunteer photog Ian McCausland says there's no catch, just a chance for families to create new holiday memories.
