Tim's Tip of the Day

The New York Times reported today that the meat inspectors in the US only test a fraction of the cattle that are unable to walk at the time of slaughter. The animal that tested positive for BSE in Washington was processed for human consumption two weeks ago. The Canadian cow with the disease was sent to a rendering plant. The Canadian herd and all related were destroyed immediately, the US herd is being quarentined. If you visit the United States take your food with you.

Kevin's find of the day

Layoffs hit elves at Arctic SantaPark (PDF) Matti Huuhtanen of Associated Press filed this story of a Santa amusement park in Helsinki Finland that has fallen on hard times.

Ensign Notes

We will not post on Christmas day but will have some new stories on Boxing Day.


The Greenwater Report
Tuesday
December 23, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park: Things have warmed up out at the park while Gerald was off on a hockey trip to Manitoba. But this week's report includes Fisherman's Cover holiday hours and a salute to the new Sears outlet in Porcupine Plain.

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.

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 privatisation 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.
