Town Clerk Emily Butler says she's been told that the municipality is responsible for the whale, but she's trying to contact a government agency for help because it can't deal with the 25-metre (82 foot) carcass alone.

CAA Saskatchewan just wrapped up its annual worst roads campaign and 33 kilometres of Highway 24 between Leoville and Spiritwood got the most votes. What's a bad road according to CAA?

Imagine coming home and 13 of your trees were now a meter tall. They learned that some neighbours had trees lining their property. Those neighbours asked SaskPower to remove their trees. A SaskPower tree-trimming crew was dispatched, but it went to the wrong property. After the work was done, the crew realized its mistake and apologized, but when the couple went to SaskPower to get compensated for their loss, they were rebuffed. In a letter, the power utility informed them that while it took out the wrong trees, it nevertheless had a right to remove them to protect its power lines. The family took the case to the ombudsman's office, which made some inquiries. It found that not only did SaskPower cut the wrong trees, it also broke the rules and botched the job. After the ombudsman's office intervened, SaskPower changed its mind and said it would pay the couple.

The rumours were true, one CFL team is over the league's salary management system and it turns out that it was the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The CFL announced today after auditing every team in the league the Riders were $17,795 dollars over the $4.4 million threshold. Because the green and white were less than $100,000 over the limit the team will only be fined $17,795.
A new era in Regina Pats hockey will soon be dawning. On Wednesday team owner Russ Parker officially announced what the Green Zone told you first on Tuesday: he's selling the team to a group of local investors lead by Anthony Marquart, the president of Queen City Sports and Entertainment. The sale isn't official just yet, as it has to be approved by the WHL Board of Governors at a special meeting. That is scheduled for next Wednesday.
Russian MMA-based show called Hip Show: Arena Combat, which is broadcast in America on AXS TV. It's really weird and completely made up.

The last time Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda faced the Red Sox, he clearly had pine tar on his hand. No one on the Red Sox brought it up, and the Yankees won. Tonight, Pineda again used pine tar, slapping on his neck before the second inning. Red Sox manager John Farrell spoke up this time. Farrell asked the umpiring crew to check the obvious splotch on Pineda's neck. Home plate umpire Gerry Davis went through the motions, and subsequently ejected Pineda from the game.
Kids in five school districts in BC didn't get recess yesterday. Apparently they only have one recess because it shortened their school day by 15 minutes. BC teachers are battling the provincial government there for a new contract. And you can assume from this things aren't good.

The Prime Minister’s son Ben turned 18 over the weekend, and things may have got a touch out of hand for one 18 year old woman. The RCMP said paramedics were called and took away what was believed to be an unconscious or semi-conscious woman.

Yesterday Regina Pats owner Russ Parker officially announced he's selling the team to a group of local investors.
