Riders get fresh start after week off

It was back to work today for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, at least so we've been told.

Only the players and coaches know for sure what happened on the turf at Mosaic Stadium as the doors were sealed shut for their first workout after the week off.

"We're starting as a new season and there's a lot of things that changed. Whether it's the tempo or style of practice," said head coach Corey Chamblin. "Going forward, it gives us time to seclude ourselves, make sure we get everything where we want it to be before it's open and out there."

He's accused of 2 counts of sexual assault, one count of sexual interference of a person under the age of 16, procuring miscarriage and assault.  

Crooked Lake evacuation order lifted

Campers will be able to head back to Crooked Lake Provincial Park as soon as Wednesday, as the evacuation order that had been set during the flooding has been lifted.
 
Seasonal campers will be able to go back to the park Wednesday. Nightly camping for people with reservations and walk-ups will start back up on Friday.
 
But the water is still too high, so the boat launch will be out of use.

Man acquitted of Springwater grow-op charges

A man found in a Springwater home with up to $400,000 worth of pot plants was found not guilty last month.

RCMP executed a search warrant and raided the home on June 24, 2010, in the community of Springwood, 130 kilometers west of Saskatoon.
