September 28, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Here are some pictures taken this past weekend around Tisdale and at Greenwater Lake Provincial Park.

Tim's Tip of the Day

Prince Albert now has a full medical clinic with two doctors and two nurses on hand when the SuperStore is open. Walk in clinics like this really take the pressure off the hospital's emergency room which in Prince Albert's case is seriously challenged. (Click on thumb nail to see full size.)

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.

September 3, 2010

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.
