Residents in Coronach are being warned to not use tap water after a break-in at the water treatment plant.

According to the Water Security Agency, an unknown substance may have been added to the water.

A notice sent to residents said they should only use bottled water and they should not try to treat the water themselves as boiling or filtering the water will not make it safe.

The Water Security Agency said there now has to be a complete flush of the system due to the incident.

The advisory went into effect at 10:25 a.m. on Monday and will be lifted when it is determined the water supply is safe.

With families spending more time at home due to COVID-19, demand for firewood in Saskatchewan has skyrocketed.

Rhonda Woelk and her husband own Countryside Firewood. They bring in birch logs from Manitoba, and usually sell about 100 cords of wood annually.

Last year, their sales nearly doubled.

“Last year, we noticed already in the spring, we started to get calls from people we’d never seen before for customers,” said Woelk. “And then it just kept going throughout the whole summer. We did sell a lot more wood last year.”

The Woelks are currently sold out, and have a waiting list. The wood isn’t all going to heat homes and for cozy living room fires. Backyard firepits are more popular than ever, even in the winter months. “But this year we’ve noticed, a few extra have been asking for, because they want to do campfires outside, because they can’t have as many people over for inside the house,” Woelk said.

The Durston family in Regina gathers around their fireplace a few times a week. The kids pitch in helping to build and light the fire.

“We got the kids together, we had a fire,” father Shea Durston said. “We just read a book together, it’s been wonderful from a family standpoint to spend a little bit more time together. Kids are still talking about that night.”

The Durston’s three kids Caleb, Madison and Taylor all enjoy the activity that helps set the scene for some family-bonding time.

“We kind of get hot chocolate and get in the living room and get fire,” said Madison Durston.

Shea bought a huge bag of firewood last fall, but that bag is almost empty. Finding more wood could be a challenge, as firewood sales are up from a year ago.

“We love building fires, we love the fellowship around it when we have people over. So something we definitely do in the backyard,” Shea said. The Durston family plans to continue their fireside tradition, an opportunity to come together, and bond as a family.

“It’s just something going on in the background, that creates a gathering point for our family,” he said.

Saskatchewan residents will soon see a jump in fees associated with 911.

According to a news release from the province, the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) is upgrading its 911 technology. The increase, set to go into effect April 7, is meant to fund this transition.

Saskatchewan residents currently pay 0.94 monthly, which will soon double to 1.88 monthly.

“The existing system is aging, and these upgrades are required to ensure that Saskatchewan residents can continue to rely on secure, resilient 911 technology.” Marlo Pritchard, SPSA President said.

Fees associated with 911 were last adjusted in 2018.

“In the future, these fee increases will be indexed to the Consumer Price Index for Saskatchewan to ensure the long-term financial sustainability of the system without requiring regulatory changes,” the news release said.

In 2020, 911 received 470,000 calls in Saskatchewan.

We have notice that our sites wont keep up with Next Show Scripts, this is to update the site with the current playing shows. as well it effects our News Feed, Now Playing, Advertisement Rotations and in some cases pauses the live broadcast audio from being played. This is not required by EVO Media Corporation or EVO Radio, but to stay up to date on our sites we recommend making a few changes to Chrome Settings. Please dont worry, these changes dont effect security setting, all it does stops Chrome from throttling down JavaScript from doing its job.


Here is an explanation:

Problem: When a tab is inactive, like youre on a different tab, or when a window is occluded, i.e. you have another window over top of the browser window, Google chrome will pause or drastically throttle JavaScript timers. This causes excessive CPU usage, reduces battery life if you using laptopmobile and allows background tabs, Chrome will hibernate and throttle background tabs in some way regardless, running a JavaScript benchmark on a background tab demonstrates it pretty well and the real hibernations begins after 5 minutes, crippling the performance.


Here is the solution for Chrome Browsers (Note: Other browser may do the same, please search on the web Throttle Javascript timers in background on YOUR BROWSER NAME (FireFox), each browser works differently.)

Solution:

go to
chrome:flags
yes, you can type that into URL bar


in the search, type throttle

Youre going to get 3 options, the two labeled Throttle Javascript timers in background and Calculate window occlusion on Windows, probably set as default right now, turn them to disabled

bottom right corner, hit relaunch to relaunch chrome with new settings. timers should no longer be throttled when a window is tabbed out or occluded


NOTE: SINCE MOST OF OUR LISTENERES USE CHROME TO STREAM OUR STATIONS, THIS FIX IS FOR THEM, IF YOU ARE NEEDING HELP PLEASE REACH OUT TO US FOR HELP!!

THANK YOU!
