by: Timothy W. Shire

From the Free Market to the Justice System: Let us think together about it!
Friday, May 2, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
What you will find in this story is the bottom line. Mr. deSantis has been digging and the text of his story is how he feels after finding what he did but to understand this conclusion you are going to have to look at some of the references as the ABC story on the Whitehouse and its "emphasis" is truly a shocker.

Getting Noticed
Friday, May 2, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
The demise of the notice board by the post office has moved the burden of being a place to post buried in the sidewalk nearby. Seems like a problem.

Solving the problems he created
Friday, May 2, 2003
by: Mike Reilly
Paul Martin has been coy about what he stands for and only lately has been making pronouncements but his over confidence or arrogance is hard to fathom because this man is most likely going to be the Prime Minister in a few months and as Mike Reilly points out Paul Martin's solutions involve a lot of fast footwork and the understanding of Canada one might expect of someone in kindergarten.

The pre-leaf time of spring
Thursday, May 1, 2003

A photo essay of the beauty of the trees before they become shrowded in leaves.

St. Matthew's annual spring sale and more
Thursday, May 1, 2003
This is the biggest Anglican Church rummage sale I have seen and it will be on for two more days. We also visit the sale at Cedar Villa and at the Heritage Park. There is a QuickTime VR on this page which can not be seen with out QuickTime being installed on your computer.

House number two
Wednesday, April 30, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
This house has its basement and main floor complete in the NewMarket area. To see this story you will need QuickTime as there is a 624K panorama of the area on this page.

This store sucks
Wednesday, April 30, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
A new business has openned in the Tisdale Mall offering used books and vacuum cleaners.

House number One for 2003

Red River College
Tuesday, April 29, 2003
Using a new campus with a blend of new buildings and completely rebuilt ones to produce a setting that will facilitate the development of Canada's most innovative graphics school.

SARS Demands More Than Comedy Teams And Spin Doctors
Tuesday, April 29, 2003
by: Ron Thornton
In 1918 a horrible influence swept across the whole of the world it was devastating. Our world is vulnerable and the jokers should be telling jokes and serious folks should be around to get ready to tighten up the things that might protect us all.

Hey Canada, meet Paul “much more” Martin: He wants to do much more, it will surely cost much more, and taxpayers deserve much more detail
Tuesday, April 29, 2003
by: Walter Robinson
So what has Paul Martin told Canada about his policies and what he stands for? It seems he believes in generalities and Walter Robinson has some suggestions.

A year of intersections
Monday, April 28, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
One after another water lines under intersections have failed this year from in front of the elementary school, beside the Anglican Church and four on this one street alone.

American Crony Capitalism: The snowballing of privatization, less taxes and more wars
Monday, April 28, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
American economic operations are in the Texas Enron pattern. Spend money they don't have, cover it with wars and cut taxes to fatten up the wealthy. The whole thing is just delayed failure in progress.

The Greenwater report
Monday, April 28, 2003
By: Gerald Crawford
Gerald's been off to Sturgis for the opening of Barb's Emporium and gives us the a review of the new eating establishment. Remember now this is by a guy who is suppose to be on a diet.

Monday, April 28, 2003
by: Kevin McIntyre
Kevin got this to Ensign on Friday but that was a travel day and there was no time to get it posted. But with both Joe Hueglin and Ron Thornton giving us their views on SARS we need to consider how Kevin feels about the issue.

S.A.R.S in perspective
Monday, April 28, 2003
by: Joe Hueglin
We have heard these terms "suspect," "Probable," and "confirmed" but do we or anyone have any idea what these mean. Joe Hueglin has looked into the problem and provides us with the whole simple story including some excellent references that clear the matter up.

Sunday, April 27, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
With less than 50cc. of engine displacement and limited in speed this vehicle is classed as a bicycle and as such does not require a special drivers license. Surprising that the moped is not more popular in North America but in Europe they are and have been extremely popular for decades.

Another world is possible: Bush&Co Games versus Thinking
Sunday, April 27, 2003
by: Mario deSantis
In this story Mario deSantis contrasts the basic mode of operation in use by the United States and a surprisingly attractive alternative.

by: Timothy W. Shire
A wild snow storm smashed into Calgary this morning as winds wick away the winters moisture as planting begins across the Great Central Plains.

The IMF and World Bank:Poverty Reduction and Growth? Or the Same Old Formula?
Saturday, April 26, 2003
by: Mark Weisbrot
The United States and its enforced economic policies in South and Central America have reduced growth from 75% to 7% and the standard of living is actual close to declining everywhere American policies prevail. This means the United States and its "regime change" war in Iraq are enormously unpopular.
