The first hundred years
Tuesday
December 16, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Oshkosh Wisconsin: A hundred years ago powered flight began and it has been rising ever since. We celebrate this occassion with a set of 29 pictures mostly from the third decade of flight when it became a facility of life instead of a screwball experiement.


Christmas baking
Monday
December 15, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: Of course you can go to the bakery but if you want to give someone something that really means something, make it yourself. How about some great cinnimon buns?

Judge Martinís Cabinet on the job titles and record, not on map locations
Monday
December 14, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
Ottawa: The very large government set forth by the new prime minister has many wondering about costs. Knowing that the prime minister watches the flow of money carefully he has served up a very large platter of government this means he has two choices, either cut many existing programmes or follow the pattern he has followed in the past creating excuses to slap on more taxes.

Tim's Tip of the Day

Are you not a little concerned about the fact, and it is a fact, that both Saddam Hussein and Osam Bin Ladin were both former allies of the United States. Is any of what they say about either even remotely or possibly close to being true.

Kevin's find of the day

Strom Thurmond's family confirms paternity claim (PDF) David Mattingly of CNN explains the unusual paternity situation of the United States' longest serving senator who had an affair with a black housekeeper. Thurmond destinguished himself as a man who opposed integration was the father of a black daughter now 76 years old.

Ensign Notes

Tonight we are posting for the last time until we get back from Winnipeg. We will have pictures on next Tuesday.


The Greenwater Report
Monday
December 15, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park: Winter advances as Greenwater folks get together for a pot luck, some fishing stories, and Porcupine's Bar is getting ready to open.

The malfeasances of Bush's Free Market: Halliburton's profits and failure to securitize the Iraqi Army
Monday
December 15, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: Something is very rotten in the state of Iraq as Vice President Cheney who still gets $400,000 a year from his company Halliburton each year is charging many times more than a reasonable profit for services and products while the Iraqi Army looks to be very suspicious. Can anyone say "Vietnam?"

Cutting Edge Cutlery Co.
Monday
December 15, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Regina: Here are a set of pictures of a really unusual shop in Regina's Victoria Square Mall.

Ups and Downs, What has been 2003 and what might be 2004
Sunday
December 14, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Qu'Appelle Valley: Though it is still two weeks from the end of the year this one is a tough one to call and today we do a little preliminary to the annual New Year's prediction project.

A deeper Free Market in Canada: Charest fights for his privatization of Quebec
Sunday
December 14, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: It appears as though the government of Quebec like that of British Columbia has begun a process of reducing the numbers of public workers and reducing the earns of those still employed while moving more government services into the private sector. The unfortunate facts are that there is no evidence to support the economic positive affects of such action while at the same time the public will be subjected to strikes and the kinds of problems that brought Ontario situations like Walkerton and the inability of Toronto to deal with a medical crisis.

Not exactly a thing of beauty
Sunday
December 14, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale:It is almost a month since Tisdale's Town council decreed that the people of Tisdale no longer put their garbage in the garbage can stands in their back yards by the alley but instead each garbage day take the cans out to the front of their houses for curb side pickup.

Watson, the home of the Santa Claus Day
Saturday
December 13, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Watson: This unique little prairie town is all dressed up for Christmas and we have some pictures to show you taken as a light snow was falling and flakes melting on the windshield.

Judy died of Ovarian Cancer
Saturday
December 13, 2003
by: Carol M. Martin
Courtenay, B.C.: Though we hear a lot about Breast and Prostrate cancer it seems the public is much less aware of the killer Ovarian Cancer which steadily each year takes a remarkable toll of human life. Carol Martin spells out for us the basic information about this deadly disease, a personal story as her good friend died in August.

The ultimate deception of Bush's Free Market: "You are either with us or against us"
Saturday
December 13, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: The American press and news media are now beginning to take some hard shots at the American President and what his policies are doing both to the economy and the credibility of the country in general. Ultimately the Americans have to accept the contempt that they as a people are going to be viewed for their conduct during this first part of the century. This story hurls out the points you must ask yourselves and the references provide you with some unpleasant answers.

Reindeer and Santa Claus
Friday
December 12, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale: Time for a picture with Santa or with his reindeer. Today at the Tisdale Mall.

Al Gore endorses presidential candidate Howard Dean: An opportunity for peace and a just American Community
Friday
December 12, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Nipawin: Howard Dean, the former governor of Vermont seems to be taking the lead in the American Democratic nomination process and further gathered momentium this week when the Democratic candidate from the last presidential election Al Gore endorsed Dean because of his appropriate attitude toward the Iraq mistake.

America's Hidden Human Rights Problem: Freedom of Association
Friday
December 12, 2003
by: Mark Weisbrot
Washington: The United States is in the worst shape of all developed countries as its workers have not shared in the gains in productivity while at the same time the laws that govern Union member ship have been almost completely eroded while Americans who would if they could join a union are prevented from doing so.

So Peter MacKay feels "vindicated"
Friday
December 12, 2003
by: Peggy Smith
Thunder Bay, Ontario: Though you have heard this argument before here is a clear statement that outlines why the vote to merge the Progressive Conservative Party and the Canadian Alliance was fixed.

Isn't this an opportunity? "Unite the Bright"
Friday
December 12, 2003
by: Jim Love
"I didn't leave the party, it left me!" Canadians from coast to coast wonder what political alternative will best represent the way they feel about things. David Orchard hit a powerful chord that resonated with so many simply because he is a politician who makes sense, practical sense. Maybe its time to be practical, pragmatic and stick to the principles that make us all Canadian.

Regina, December 2003
Thursday
December 11, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Regina: For three days I drove around Regina, a place in which I have lived and worked but now only viist. This story is a set of pictures with some commentary about what it is about yet the pictures and the story are well above the surface.

The Greenwater Report
Thursday
December 11, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park: Clear ice, northern lights, stories of wildlife and a new bar for Porcupine Plain.
