Winnipeg's Special Place: The Forks
Wednesday
June 16, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Winnipeg : The market-place, cultural centre, community meeting place, all of that and then some. Winnipeg's Forks is one of the most interesting and stimulating place I know of and almost suggests that we should take a very long look not only what it is but what it does in terms of bringing a community together. This story has some pictures that show the way it looks now and includes a QuickTime VR panorama (2.4MB) of the whole overview of the scene.

The Great Sandhills mistake
Wednesday
June 16, 2004
by : Edwin Wallace
Success : Mr. Wallace is a bit cranky about the recent decision by the Saskatchewan government to increase the amount of drilling for natural gas in the Great Sandhills area of western Saskatchewan. Environmentalists and scientists appear to agree on the ecological mistake of this decision.

1300 Wednesday - Overcast, broken towering cumulus 7/8th bases 3,000, altocumulus 1/8ths, ceiling 3,000. visibility 15, 13º, wind 5 knots at 180º, altimeter 30.06, thunderstorm with light rain WeatherLog

Though we talk of politics, business and issues none of those topics define us as thinking sentient beings. It is music, art, literature and drama that set us apart from the beasts of the world and many beasts also claim to be human

Tisdale Calendar
of Events


The sacrifice of idealism
Tuesday
June 15, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Winnipeg : It is not a pretty sight, neighbours with rival signs on their lawns, in one case a duplex with opposite signs and mixed into the federal election is the Winnipeg campaign for a replacement mayor.

A graveyard for our dreams: why Iím not voting Conservative
Tuesday
June 15, 2004
by : David Orchard
Borden : This is one of the strongest condemnations of Stephen Harper and his Alliance Party people who now call themselves by another name. But, David Orchard points out, in their own words what they are really all about.

The Saskatchewan Air Show 2004
Monday
June 14, 2004
by : Matthew Shire

Moose Jaw
: Rain and low ceiling dampened the spirits on this years airshow but many took the chance and went to participate in one of the best air shows in North America.

The Greenwater Report
Monday
June 14, 2004
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Provincial Park : The cool weather has delayed development of this year's cropp of wild flowers and if any birdwatchers are tuning in, Gerald has a hummingbird problem.

Doug Saunders of Globe and Mail: A little bit of hypocrisy is good
Monday
June 14, 2004
by : Mario deSantis
Nipawin : Ronald Reagan's death has brought back memories and the experiences of his two terms in office, Saddam Hussein's buddy as he was called in the Asia Times today. All of this brings us back to the present and the willingness we all have and seem to continue to accept rather large doses of hypocrisy.

Ice Cream
Wednesday
June 9, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale : The sun is out and its time to indulge in the reason there is summer. For those of you who don't know the reason there is summer is so we can enjoy the delight of ice cream.

The Hypocrisy of the Free Market: Running public policies as private businesses, the war in Iraq and health care in Canada
Wednesday
June 9, 2004
by : Mario deSantis
Nipawin : This story makes the point that perhaps what is at the root of the seemingly endless trouble we see occurring is the belief by leaders and the acceptance by the public that if all things were run like businesses all would be well.

Keep on truckin'
Wednesday
June 9, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale : Those big units are crucial to resource, agriculture and manufacturing and today we take a look at the structure of the business as it occurs in and around this community.

Running a personal server
Wednesday
June 9, 2004
by : John Smith
Personal servering is built into the operating system of Macintosh computers but with a Windows machine you need to obtain the right software and assemble your server. However, as John explains this is really worthwhile as it lets you move files to and from your computer over the internet without resorting to e-mail. This story has the links to get you started.

Kansas Campers
Wednesday
June 9, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale : The tourist season appears to be on as north bound traffic steadily makes its way through town. This group were spotted today at noon.

Wednesday
June 9, 2004
by : Joe Hueglin

Bohemian Waxwing
Tuesday
June 8, 2004

Dalton McGuinty: Disingenuous or delusional?
Tuesday
June 8, 2004
by : Joe Hueglin
Niagara Fall : This is one of those, "look who's talking" stories. Joe Hueglin points out that though McGuinty has caused problems for Paul Martin, it looks like Mulroney is afoot.
