Family concerned about foul play in case of Kimberley Cruickshank

Time isn't making the Regina-based search for Kristen Cruickshank's sister any easier.

Kimberley Cruickshank went missing from her home in Regina over three weeks ago.

She is concerned that her sister was kidnapped.

Canalta Cup series resumes this weekend

The SJHL Canalta Cup Final is going at least six games, after the Yorkton Terriers evened the championship at two with a 4-1 win over the Humboldt Broncos on Thursday.

Tyler Giebel opened the scoring for Yorkton, and sealed the deal with a late empty-netter. Jeremy Johnson had a goal and an assist, while Devon McMullen scored the game-winner early in the third period.

David Miazga replied for the Broncos, just 17 seconds after McMullen found the net, but that was all the offense Humboldt could muster.

Maple Creek man charged with voyeurism after camera hidden in change room

A hidden camera in a change room at a business in Maple Creek; you almost wouldn't believe it - but Saskatchewan RCMP say it's true.

Poli ce were first notified when a customer filed a complaint about a hidden camera in a private changing room at a fitness centre on the 100 block of Jasper street.

How the Arctic can be blamed for Saskatchewan's never-ending winter

Arctic air flow and storms from the west are to blame for our non-existent spring in Saskatchewan, that's according to Environment Canada anyway.

Chief meteorologist Dave Phillips says the cold air is coming in to the province from the west and the north.

“This cold spring that we’ve had is a result of warm air in Greenland of all places and it’s causing an arctic flow,” he said.

The forecast says we're not going to be getting above plus three in Regina any time in the next week, even though we should be around plus 10.

Regina alone has had 64 roof collapses which is twice the number claimed at the beginning of the month.

Sask. highway crews between winter, spring maintenance

Saskatchewan highway crews are caught in abalancing act at this time of year essentially doing both spring and winter activities.

Kirsten Leatherdale with the Highway Hotline says crews are busy steaming culverts and clearing drainage areas for spring. But because the winter weather has decided to stick around, they also have to attend to winter maintenance should conditions call for it.

Since crews aren’t out in full force as they might have been in January or February, that means road updates don’t always happen.

Snow and wind making for difficult highway conditions

Snow, mixed with 30 kilometer an hour wind, is causing snow drifts and reduced visibility on many highways in the Regina and Saskatoon areas.

Darcy Cooper is with the RM of Lumsden. She has advice for anyone heading in her direction.
