Things are wet
September 14, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Wet spring, wet summer and now wet once again as we go into fall. Crops not planted, those crops that were put in the ground grew poorly and many ploughed under now what crops that have been swathed and are awaiting harvest are soaking in the field. When looking for a bright side rice comes to mind but it has been to cold for that to have grown maybe farmers should consider wild rice for next year.

Tim's Tip of the Day

While the town of Tisdale has been rebuilding 97th St. the potholes and street break up in the rest of the town is making travel about the town difficult especially since so many of the streets are ungraded gravel and clay roads. (Click on thumb nail to see full size.)

Find of the day

Family's stay here could go up in smoke
A computer programmer from England, Chris Tarttelin and his family moved to Saskatoon in 2008. In a required medical exam he honestly said he had tried marijuana  almost twenty years ago as a teenager. Immigration Canada has demanded he have a psychological assessment by Sept 20 so he and his family have moved back to England.

The age of intolerance
September 3, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Given the nature of the last century there is really nothing new about the present. What is so hard to take is that clearly we as a people should be over this sort of thing as we allow our selves to move forward toward a brighter and more enlightened future, but instead we seem doomed to relive the age of the reformation while simply renaming the Spainish inquisition.

We deserve better from elected officials.
