Find of the day

Replace Indian Act: AFN national chief

Happenings In Tisdale:

Some clouds and fields
July 15, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: These pictures taken over the last few days show the Canola crops in bloom and the awesome forces that trundle through the prairie sky. The accompanyment is "Badaboom" from the sound track of the movie "The Fifth Element" by Eric Serra.
Flowers and a robin
July 13, 2010
by: Matthew Shire

Regina: One evening a week ago Matthew wandered around his Regina yard with camera in hand and collected this interest group of thirty-four images. These images were taken with a Canon Rebel and a telophoto lens. However, the robin was unpreturbed by his picture taking and was about five to six feet away in these pictures. We present these images in a slide show accompanied by Diana Krall's Narrow Daylight from "The Girl in the other room" album.
'30 Rock' Saskatchewan Express
July 12, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Greenwater Water Lake Provincial Park: Each year Saskatchewan Express tours Saskatchewan's provincial parks and they were in the midst of that tour this past Friday when they performed to a really big crows at Greenwater. Each year's show is distinctive with the character of the performers coming through. This year is no exception with this being their thirtieth anniversary the show was just under an hour and a half pact with hits and non-stop action on stage.
House number nine
July 8, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Situated on the east side of New Market one of the few remaining lots available is the site for the ninth housing start of the year. The eighth project, a duplex, is not progrressing very quickly but does have its floor in place and construction on its walls is about to begin. House 9 has most of its exterior frame in place and the work crew is beginning the process of assembling the inside partitions. This project got underway on June 10 so it right about the month since it began development.
Little crop in bloom
July 7, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: The heavy rain and high water table is combining to take a fatal toll on the crops that did get planted. With only half the fields planted (less in some areas) the yields will be very low on those crops planted because these conditions and flooding just will not make for a positive harvest.
Canada Day fireworks at Crooked Lake
July 5, 2010
by: Matthew Shire

Crooked Lake: Each July first George and Linda Broda host a huge family gathering at their cabin at Crooked Lake and the evening is capped off with a fireworks display. This year there was ten knots of wind to deal with but the show went on and Matthew captured some of the scenes for you to enjoy. It will keep on playing until you click on "Ensign" to return to the front page.
The Greeenwater report
July 5, 2010
by: Gerald Crawford

Radisson & Battleford: This week's report takes us out to Radisson to visit their unique museum then off to the crooked bush and then to Shell Lake's Memorial Lake Regional Park.
"B" train rollover at Estlin
June 30, 2010
by: Stu Innes

Estlin: Saskatchewan's roads and highways are home to thousands of grain haulers who run around the clock get their loads to their destinations. It is surprising how few run into difficulty. Last night near Eslin south of Regina a "B" train did a complete rollover from wheels to roof back to wheels with only slight injuries to the driver.
Tisdale grad cars
June 29, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Tisdale has a curious custom of its high school graduates painting up a clunker for the celebration of their high school finale. Here are some pictures of this year's crop of vehicles.
1957 Pontiac Laurentian convertible
June 29, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: This rare and magnificently preserved fifty-three year old car has been in Tisdale for the last week or so and definitely deserves some comment on this web site.
A wet land
June 28, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Those fields that were planted are severely, perhaps terminally damaged from the almost continuous rain we have experience in May and June. Today we have three picrtures that illustrate the situation.

June 28, 2010
by: Darlene McCullough

Unsettled weather
June 27, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: A few showers even a few showery days are the norm for late June in Saskatchewan but in a year when rain is followed by more and more rain the sequence of daily rain is getting a bit tiresome.
New curbs for north New Market
June 27, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: The newest section of Tisdale had some preparatory work carried out this week getting ready to pave the north portion of New Market and the new cul-de-sac of Fairy Glen.

June 25, 2010
by: Eugene Parks

Webserver hacked
June 24, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Regina: In the middle of the night early Friday morning the server that brings you this web site was attacked by hackers attempting to gain control and access to the server. They did not achieve their goal but did enough damage to prevent updates to the site until it was over hauled on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

June 24, 2010
by: Brian Marlatt

White Rock, British Columbia: In the southern most part of mainland British Columbia is the airport known as Boundary Bay. This past Saturday they held their sixth annual air show. Brian Marlatt was on hand and caught more than a hundred pictures of the displays and the air show itself. Some very interesting aircraft and outstanding weather.
