Black Metal Bingo hits Saskatoon

Louis' Pub is giving people the chance to play bingo to a different beat -- one that hammers away as fast as humanly possible.

Black Metal Bingo is the brainchild of Leif Carlson, who goes by the name Svartblood Krakenskull when it comes time to don the black garb and facepaint (referred to as 'corpse paint' by purists) and take his place as the demonic number caller, alongside partner-in-grimness Morgue Anna.

Carlson explained that the extreme metal subgenre isn't necessarily easy on the ears.

Sask. farmers giving thanks for harvest

Some Saskatchewan farmers are even more thankful this Thanksgiving because of record harvests.

"This is by far the best we've ever had," said Michael Wollman, who has farmed southeast of Saskatoon near Allan for about 20 years.

Wollman has finished harvesting all his wheat, barley and canola, but will still be out in the field this weekend spreading fertilizer.

However, he said there will be time to sit down and give thanks.

Thanksgiving all about family for soup kitchen volunteers

You could say they put the "giving" in Thanksgiving: the volunteers who spend their holiday weekend at Souls Harbour Soup Kitchen.

They may be feeding 400 to 600 people this weekend, but those who do the cooking and cleaning say it's really just like one big extended family.

“This is not about business, this is about being as a family – this is what this building is all about,” said Daniel Fromanek.

Anonymous graffiti spreads positive messages in Regina

It's likely the kind of graffiti people would prefer to see around Regina.

At least six signs have been posted in Regina's Cathedral and Crescents neighbourhoods with positive messages written on them. The signs themselves appear to be made from pieces of scrap lumber and fence posts. The handwriting on each one is different, but they are all done with the same black paint.

Regina high school students get a lesson in distracted driving

A group of high school kids in Regina were taken outside the classroom for and into the driver’s seat to learn this lesson.

Roughly 100 students from Sheldon Williams Collegiate gathered at the driving training course at RCMP Depot to see just how difficult it is to drive distracted.
