As the days and weeks pass the family of a missing Regina woman continues to hang on to the hope they might still see Kimberly Cruickshank again.
Monday marks exactly six months ago since now 28-year-old Kimberly Cruickshank was last seen in the city by a neighbour on March 23. It might not be getting any easier, but Kim’s sister Kristen still believes she’s out there.
“We’re staying strong, hopeful,” Kristen said.
At least one portable classroom at a Regina elementary school was boarded up and scorched Monday morning after a fire on the weekend.
Fire crews were called to W.H. Ford elementary school around 10:40 Friday night.
"When crews arrived they discovered some broken windows and a small fire inside one of the portables so they quickly snuffed out the fire and then they had to use smoke extractors to remove smoke from the portable and from the hallway," said Gerard Kay, with Regina Fire and Protective Services.
The Saskatoon Police Service reports laying multiple charges after chasing a suspect over the weekend.
The charges stem from an incident early Saturday morning, shortly after 3 am.
That's when a police release alleges that a driver ran a red light on Avenue P and 33rd Street, narrowly missing a police cruiser travelling through the intersection.
The next time you’re out in Saskatoon for a walk, a drive, or a bike ride for that matter, you may want to pay a little more attention to your surroundings.

For any of you who’ve cringed going through the intersection of Lewvan Drive and Dewdney Avenue on the cusp of a red light, it’s all been for naught. The red light camera at that intersection isn’t working. In fact it hasn’t been working for the last three years.
“I don’t think that we hide the fact that it isn’t operational,” said Sgt. Andrew Puglia with the Regina Police Service.
They don’t hide it, but they don’t announce it either.
“The fact that the hardware is still there, I think it assists,” said Puglia.
When Dennie Fornwald walked outside her home Sunday morning, she found a pile of burnt books.
Fornwald had been lovingly maintaining a free library in the Heritage neighbourhood. The little take-a-book leave-a-book box was well-used by the community. She estimates about 10 people used it every day during the summer months.
At around 3:00AM Sunday morning, the library was set on fire by vandals.
