Afghanistan vet prepares to mark Nov. 11

Master Corporal Micah Coupal doesn't look at Remembrance Day the same way he used to after spending two years serving in Afghanistan.

Coupal is with 38 Signals Regiment 4 Squadron Saskatoon. He joined the armed forces in 2006 as a reservist in the signals trade. He said he knew he enjoyed being in the service, partially because of the respect he received but also because of the importance of the job.

Regina students connect to soldiers of past and present

From Juno Beach to the Canadian Forces Base in Afghanistan all the way back to the halls of a Regina elementary school, one group of students is connecting to soldiers of the past and the present to ensure they will never be forgotten.

 “I think it’s really important to remember all year round and not just on one day because it’s very important what they did,” explained 11-year-old Ainsley Pirddell

Icy highways cause three vehicle collision

Winter conditions on Saskatchewan highways caused a collision northwest of Saskatoon

Tuesday night around 7 p.m. a RV-Bus pulling an SUV was driving on Highway 16.

Near the village of Maymont, the RV drove right into the back of a slow moving semi truck.

Regina bus drivers to slow down and restrict radio use over contract

People who ride the bus might be standing out in the cold a little bit longer waiting this week and they shouldn't expect drivers to radio ahead for transfers. It's all part of the plan from the union to slow down the system and get some attention at city hall.

The local bus drivers’ union voted on Oct. 27 to take job action that could include anything from not wearing uniforms while working to refusing overtime to going on strike.

Dixie Chicks in Saskatoon Sunday night

Cowboys and cowgirls will be heading to the Credit Union Centre Sunday night to hear the Dixie Chicks play.

Although there are still a few tickets left, there won't be any wide open spaces at the show. CUC expects a huge turnout of over 9,000 people to watch the well known country musicians play their classics and new hits.

To help alleviate traffic head to the venue early. The doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.

The CUC also suggested that people should car pool or take the bus.

SaskPower has a team out working to fix the problem, though as of 1:40 p.m. hasn't given any indication to when it may be restored.

Halloween more trick than treat for one Regina girl

All she wanted to do was go trick or treating with her friends.

She put on her scarecrow costume and met up with two other girls, one dressed as a crayon, the other a porcelain doll. The group of 12-year-olds headed out into their Lakeview-area neighbourhood to gather as much candy as they could. They had a pretty good haul going too, until they turned the corner onto Robinson Street in the Lakeview area by St. Pius School.

How to deal with problematic neighbours

Amy Dunlop has lived on her home at Montreal Street and 1st Avenue for a decade. She and her neighbours call it a quiet, working class neighbourhood where people take pride in keeping good care of their homes. Except for one house.

This is a similar story in many communities: one “problem” house in an otherwise quiet neighbourhood. In Dunlop’s case, the house in her area was often the scene of loud parties where fights broke out. Other neighbours said they thought it was a drug house judging by the constant stream of cars stopping by for short periods at a time.
