December 9, 2004

Prince Albert : Emotions run very high about this topic but we need to step back from the noise and check the facts. The proponents of this industry gloss over the glaring and utterly overwhelming dangers of the past, all of which avoided the ultimate disaste,r which is not just possible, but is inevitable.

Tim's Tip of the Day

On ice with a front wheel drive vehicle you better remember to use not the brakes but the accellerator toget yourself out of trouble. With limited traction apply modest power to avoid a vehicle out of control or negotiate a slippery turn and when that fails, count on ABS brakes by jumping on the brake peddle as hard as possible. Without ABS the powered front wheels are your only hope in an emergency.

Kevin's find of the day

Homeless Iraq vets showing up at shelters Mark Benjamin of United Press International deals with the huge number of US veterans who are homeless, mostly from the Vietnam era but now it looks like many veterans from Iraq are starting to need help.

Ensign Notes

PC or Mac the world moves onward, if you haven't updated your QuickTime lately make sure you do so as the newer version plays MPEG-4 movies. The pictures of the day for November were assembled today.

The Greenwater Report
Tuesday
December 7, 2004
by : Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park : Gerald brings us up to date on the silence of winter on the Park and a few of his expeditions to Saskatoon and Archerwill. We get an update on the lake's ice conditions and three amazing images of Saskatchewan elevators when they were actually operational.
The other side of the Elmasry Affair
Tuesday
December 7, 2004
by : Marjaleena Repo
Saskatoon : A Toronto "Christian" talk show host set up a controversial debate that allowed the reasonable and anti-violent leader of Canada's Islamic Congress to explain why Palastinian terrorism takes the form it does then was castigated for his explanation.
Beardy's Blackhawks defeated by Trojans 5 to 1
Friday
December 3, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale : Tisdale Trojans are now firming in control of second place in the "AAA" midget league in Saskatchewan as they delivered a solid win to their faithful fans Thursday night at the RECPlex.
Next Year
Thursday
December 2, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale : With the arrival of winter the crop year of 2004 is now behind us and there is no other course of action than to consider the prospects for the coming year. Worthless crops remain in the fields and worthless grain in storage while even more worthless cattle continue to eat up abundant feed that even though cheap, will not yield and a net return.
Its here again
Tuesday
November 30, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale : Alas its time once more to shovel off the drive way, clear the sidewalk, make sure the shovel is in the trunk of the car and put that extra set of keys in your pocket so you can get in when you luck the keys inside with it running.
The Greenwater Report
Tuesday
November 30, 2004
by : Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park : Last week Gerald told us how people were interested in buying pictures of elevators so this week his report is accompanied by four super elevator pictures.
Tisdale Trojans part of midnight madness
Friday
November 26, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale : Ranked fifth in the league so far the Tisdale Trojans are the pride of the community. The whole team was on hand Friday night at the mall to say hello to their fans and demonstrate some skills.
Parkland Photography club meeting for November 2004
Friday
November 26, 2004
by : Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park : Good picture are often a matter of luck but great pictures are an entirely different thing and the Parkland Photography club works on being great at each and every monthly meeting.
A perception of the disorder in the New World Order: Canadian health care, the falling American dollar, universitiesí independence
Friday
November 26, 2004
by : Mario deSantis
Prince Albert : Though Canada's health care system, the falling American dollar and the reliance of Canadian universities upon money from private business seem to be completely different topics Mr. deSantis is pointing out that this is our world and we have to accept responsibility for thinking things through and we need to object when the appropriate compromise between "need and greed" goes unchecked. This story needs some careful consideration and you will have to refer to the references to grasp the complexities of these inter-related issues.
"I must go down to the seas again"
Thursday
November 25, 2004
by : Ken Jones and John Masefield
Nova Scotia : When I studied John Masefield's "Sea Fever" in high school it was quaint and the words interesting but it really meant nothing until two days ago when Ken Jones sent me these amazing pictures of the Atlantic off the coast of Nova Scotia taken in late October of this year.
Curbing Crib Death
Thursday
November 25, 2004
by : Bev Currie
Swift Current : New Zealand claims to have ended the scurge of Crib Death, the leading cause of death to infants in Canada. The remarkable story and its references suggest a really simple and inexpensive preventative measure to a killer.
Trojans take Blazers 3 - 2
Wednesday
November 24
by : Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale : Tuesday night the fans at the RECPlex were treated to an exceptional low scoring hockey game as the Saskatoon Blazer who are in second place in the league met their match and then some, in a 3 -2 victory for the hard skating Trojan squad.
Greenspan Hits the Trifecta: Dollar's Decline Inevitable
Wednesday
November 24, 2004
by : Mark Weisbrot
Washington : Like selecting the win, place and show positions in a horse race the United States treasury official has let the word out, this can't go on.

Black Capped Chickadee: Poecile atricapilla
Tuesday
November 23, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale : These all year round residents, who are remarkably monogamous make their homes from coast to coast across North America and as you can see sometimes eat upside down.
How anti-American is she, really?
Tuesday
November 23, 2004
by : Marjaleena Repo
Saskatoon : Though the news and her former party leader have tried to paint this Missassauga member of parliament as a loud mouth who does not think through what she is saying, this is perhaps a biased opinion, as she may well be telling people what they don't want to hear.
