VOCM is now providing Fort McMurray news updates-just heard it today. Have I missed it before or is that new?

More from VOCM:

The Great Big GiveDecember 5, 2008A group of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians living in Toronto are holding a benefit concert for Daffodil Place this weekend. The Great Big Give on Saturday night will be hosted by Mary Walsh and will feature Great Big Sea, along with a silent auction and dance. The event is organized by the Smiling Land Foundation. Great Big Sea Band Member and Daffodil Place spokesperson Alan Doyle says the response has been overwhelming and he expects it to be a big night in T-O.

Our Divas Do BroadwayDecember 5, 2008The premiere performance of this season's Our Divas Do Broadway hits the stage at Mile One Centre this evening. The fifth annual show is being staged in support of Daffodil Place and Co-Producer Sheilagh Guy Murphy says Broadway fans will enjoy polished performances of their musical favorites. Murphy says the show takes about a year to put together and it is much like the Radio City Music Hall shows. She says it is a huge undertaking. Featured in the show, which runs all this weekend, are songs from Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, Cats, Rent and more. Tickets are available at the Mile One Box Office.

***Go Cousin Clint B! Will miss you this year with baby and all but I will be back looking for you next year.

Elderly Woman RobbedDecember 5, 2008Police are investigating a purse-snatching near a strip mall on Kenmount Road in St. John's. RNC say two teenagers ran up behind an elderly woman and grabbed her purse during supper hour last night. The purse contained an undisclosed amount of cash. The woman was not hurt.

***I can't believe that happens here. I was chased by would-be robbers while I was in Nashville a few years back. I escape them a novel way-I got myself hit by a car. Not the best option, but it worked.
