You don’t have to get a letter from Hogwarts or go to Diagon Alley to go find a witch shop. In fact, there is one in Regina.
The store is unremarkable from the outside, inconspicuous among the other businesses, and people driving by giving it the cursory once over would never know all the tools for witchcraft can be found inside.
On any given day, dozens of people drive by the innocuous white, square building along Innovation Boulevard on the University of Saskatchewan campus.
The sign outside reads Canadian Light Source and the building, with its large, road-facing windows may not stand out among university architecture.
The young canine who was found, rescued, and cared for by Regina police officers now has a home with one of them.
On Thanksgiving weekend, Cst. Cory Longhurst found the dog in an alley behind the 1600 block of Toronto St. "Copper", as he was later named, was bleeding; his back leg cut down to the bone.
Copper was rushed to a 24-hour vet clinic on Victoria Ave. Without an owner, nobody could be called upon to pay for treatment. Without payment, Copper would be put down.
The Regina Pats winning streak has now reached five games thanks to a 3-2 overtime win over the Medicine Hat Tigers.
The game Friday was probably the best of the Pats five game winning streak and it featured a little bit of everything. It was mostly a wide open affair as both teams combined for 76 shots on net but both goalies were up to the task of keeping it close. Tigers goalie Marek Langhammer made 42 saves in a losing effort and Dawson MacAuley matched him with 29 saves of his own.
Gigantic plumes of smoke coming from a farmyard 16 kilometers north of Regina could easily be seen from the city Tuesday afternoon.
A wildfire was sparked in a field of stubble, and driven east by heavy winds towards a nearby farmhouse.
The fire scorched a field of stubble and claimed a few bales just meters away from the house. Regina fire crews and local farmers worked to contain it, saving the structures in the yard for the most part.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Four children have been arrested in a rash of garage and property fires in Regina's Cathedral neighbourhood.
All four suspects are under the age of 12, and thus, cannot be charged under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
The latest incidents happened over the Thanksgiving long weekend. At around 1:30 p.m. Saturday, fire crews were called to the 3300 block of 13th Avenue for a garage fire. The West side of the structure was badly burned along with the roof. No one was injured.
Once a symbol of Saskatchewan and its role in the world's food system, the wooden grain elevator has become nearly extinct. But one of the few examples left now looks as it did when it was built in 1927.
Standing as a sentry next to the highway entering North Battleford from the east, this elevator was moved from its original home east of the Battlefords at Keatley to the Heritage Farm and Village at the Western Development Museum in 1983. Ever since it was originally restored it's needed a touch-up every decade or so – new paint and other repairs.
Emergency response teams from across the province were in Regina Saturday to take part in the 23rd annual Industrial Fire and Rescue Competition.
The competition saw seven teams from Cameco, Agrium, Mosaic Potash and SaskPower accomplishing different tasks related to their training as industrial firefighters.
This included a number of different events including a confined space rescue, search and rescue, and something called hose line advancement which simulates the techniques used when putting out large fires.
The jesters were juggling, the knights were jousting and all was merry down at the University of Saskatchewan Saturday as people came out to experience all things medieval.
Playing off its success from last year, the Museum of Antiquities was back at Culture Days with their full Kynge Medieval Festival.
“It’s fun to have the opportunity once and a while to go back in time and dress in the garb and live the life of the middle ages,” museum director Tracene Harvey said.
The main courtroom of the Moose Jaw Queen's Bench building now sits filled with rubble and stagnant water.
But courtroom operations should be back up and running in fairly short order.
The second floor ceiling collapsed over the weekend; bursting water pipes, and spreading debris everywhere.
Luckily, nobody was inside at the time.
