New LED RECPlex sign
August 20, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
These bright animated and perhaps distracting signs are becoming common place in the cities but Tisdale is getting one to tell everyone who sees it, what is going on at the RECPlex and in the community.

Tim's Tip of the Day

North America was developed with railroads but the illusion of freedom with roads, trucks and private cars has dominated that development and looks doomed perhaps taking the society with it. (Click on thumb nail to see full size.)

Kevin's find of the day

Prosecutors raid
Porsche offices

Suspecting manipulation of the market prosecutors have raded the headquarters of Porsche which is with the country Qatar in the process of taking over Volkswagen. The take over bid looks fishy.

Happenings In Tisdale:

Water trouble at 1-11
August 20, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
An apparent problem with water forced the excavation of the south side of the 7-11 store today but there was no anticipated disruption to the busy store or inconvenience to its large number of customers.
Does Noah have a cell?
August 19, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
With the weekend's rain followed by yesterday and today one wonders "How long can you tread water?" It has been a miserable cool summer with Albertans complaining of drought and Manitobans still pumping out their basements from spring flooding. Now I wonder if its to late to get in touch with Noah for some advice and information about what's a cubit.
The Greenwater report
August 17, 2009
by: Gerald Crawford
Back into Saskatoon for a brief rest the Crawfords did not enjoy the rain but were rewarded with yet another great grandchild. Gerald like the campground in Churchbridge and is proud of the appearance of Wynyard. Next week off to Little Loon Lake.
Stephen Harper: A Homer Simpson in the making?
August 17, 2009
by: Eugene Parks
Victoria, British Columbia:
Mulroney's privatisation of the Medical Isotope processing resulted in the confusion with the Maple reactor project. Now after several law suits all lost by the government they own the non-working reactors. Time to sort them out and get isotope production back on line.
What once was Kenosee Lake

Kenosee Lake, Moose Mountain Provincial Park:
For many who grew up in South Eastern Saskatchewan, Kenosee Lake was the centre of the universe. Outstanding golf course, great dance bands, swimming, fishing camping and a great beach to hang out but some sort of geological accident has made the lake just a fraction of what it once was and mostly we just have the memories.
Housing start 13, a triplex
August 14, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
Located on the south side of what was only a little more than a decade ago, the primary school playground a new triplex has taken shape. Twenty-eight pictures tell the story of its construction so far.
Still a way to go before harvest
August 14, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
That cold spring was followed by an equally cool summer and the crops though looking good are weeks behind normal. In a simple drive through the country north of Tisdale this morning it looks like two to three weeks before the process begins.
The Greenwater report
August 13, 2009
by: Gerald Crawford
Souris, Manitoba:
Since Ensign did not post last week we get a Greenwater report two days in a row. This report takes us across the province to Kennedy then on into Manitoba to Souris and then to Winnipeg. Besides the pictures and story most of the place names have links that allow you to check out the details of the Crawford's adventures.
The Greenwater report

by: Gerald Crawford
Red Deer Alberta:
This report is last week's report which we did not post as we at Ensign were taking a holiday of our own. The Crawfords tell us about visiting a woolen mill in Carstairs and Ellis' Bird farm near Red Deer. He also clears up the images in the week before's report of a Waco byplane.
House number ten standing
July 31, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
This project got underway May 22nd with the destruction and removal of an old house as the lot was cleared for a new dwelling. Shortly after the project got underway there was a change of house plans that lasted close to a month. Now the walls and garage of the new house are standing across the street from the RCMP detachment.
