On Our Lack of Languaging: Tax-Free Communicator Walter Robinson
Friday, February 14, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
The use of terms in context that are meant in opposites is a matter of serious confusion and Mario deSantis wonders if the thinking that leads to such confusion is not deliberate.

Tim's Tip of the Day

Don't waste your breath, if you don't want people to understand what you say, just shutup. But if you are interested in being understood make sure that you are speaking clearly enough that there are a few consonants in your speech. If you are looking for a really bad example of unintelligible speech listen to the message for Melfort's theatre 306 752 5499. Val girl talk may be cool but it is not a reasonable way of communicating.

Ensign Notes

Valentines day, does that mean we write in red ink today?

A good proof of a bad goof
Friday, February 14, 2003
by: Ron Thornton
The decision to introduce federal legislation dealing with the funding of political parties and campaigns has been objected to by Walter Robinson earlier this week but Ron Thornton points out the democratic endangerment that such a scheme will have as it will further entrench a ruling party.

Not a clear day
Thursday, February 13, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
As Kevin points out in his story on periodic maintenance, a person needs to be careful about what they wish for. In this case what if you really could see into the future and predict what would happen?

Periodic maintenance required
Thursday, February 13, 2003
by: Kevin McIntyre
So a person grows long hair, well its a little more complicated that it appears and as Kevin explains, it requires looking after and the problems it creates.

Neat Car - 1956 Plymouth
Thursday, February 13, 2003
by: J. Stanley
The writer did not tell us where he is from but he included a picture and a plea for assistance so this one is for car enthusiasts to take a look at and perhaps someone will know and answer to Mr. Stanley's problem and give him a suggestion.

Today's Rule of Law and the Big Brains of Crony Capitalism
Wednesday, February 12, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
Mario's story today is more of an introduction than a story in itself as he has set out a list of web references that both support and define the problem that threatens to overwhelm the quality of life for us and our neighbours.

Minister Manley, tear a page out of Canadian History!
Wednesday, February 12, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
This might surprise you, but Canada was founded upon a principle of having lower taxes than the country to the South of us. Each of the various Canadian taxes of today were copied from the American tax system as it evolved.

A photo essay of the Saskatchewan countryside on a sunny Sunday, but cold February morning.

The Greenwater report
Monday, February 10, 2003
by: Gerald Crawford
Colder out at the park but the snow mobile rallies continue. Gerald shares a little history with us and some absolutely outstanding pictures of a flowering maple.

Ensign Watch - letters
Monday, February 10, 2003
It is hard to get time to include short email messages into the "letters" page. Today we had three messages, one from Paula Lake, another from Deborah Patterson and one from Oscar Choate.

Piling up, good looking winter

On Thursday in the story "signs" it was mentioned how the snow is gradually accumulating. Here are some pictures of Tisdale and area as the winter develops.

The WebCam Saga
Friday, February 7, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
During the Christmas holiday number three son proposed a webcam project for this website and so began in motion a process that has been typical of my projects, one of epic proportions. Presently you will need to click on "refresh" to see the next picture but they are posted one every thirty seconds.

Thursday, February 6, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Though there are many topics of great importance to this part of the world the number one topic is and always will be, as long as we continue to depend so heavily upon agriculture, and that is the weather. The weather matters and there is hope.
