Tim's Tip of the Day

Offer a helping hand, do a good deed, volunteer not because it is the right thing to do or your duty but because it will make you feel good about yourself.

Ensign Notes

We have three political commentaries today from across the country. The Prime Miister spoke candidly at the United Nations about the inequalities of the world's economic structure, very positive stuff.

Monday construction review
September 16, 2002
Six construction projects are highlighted in this review of work going on this morning in Tisdale.
The Liberals and Kyoto
September 16, 2002
When the Liberal government came to office it had carried to the Canadian public several very important promises. Those promises were overlooked once in power and Jim Calvert of Gravenhurst Ontario is wondering if the same process is happening with the Kyoto Accord, a lot of talk and promises but no committment.
Priorities seem very odd
September 16, 2002
Some things don't have to be complicated. We know why it is important to be Canadian and we also know that there are many who would threaten both our sovereignty and our values. Kristy Sewell from Winnipeg believes that Canada's military is coming up very short with old equipment and we need to get our priorities straightened out.
Disposable Income
September 15, 2002
A group of Harley Davidson enthusiasts take advantage of the exceptional weather for a road trip.
House #9
September 15, 2002
The relentless process of new houses being built or moved into Tisdale continues as the ninth house for this year was begun on Friday and we have pictures of the new basement ready for work to begin tomorrow.
September 14, 2002
Judy Shire goes blueberry picking near La Ronge and takes you along to see what it is like.
Flower gardens
September 14, 2002
What indeed is a garden for, beauty or the practical provision of vegetables for the table? The answer, both!
Fall of 2002 begins
September 13, 2002
With a shower early this morning and another on the way the leaves are turning and swirls of fallen one twist in the morning wind.
Walls, walls, walls
September 13, 2002
Rise Construction has begun assembling the actual restaurant structure of the new Tisdale A&W.
"Give the man a bone"
September 13, 2002
This week Paul Martin released figures about the money coming into his campaign but the figures are just a fraction of what is being spent. Joe Hueglin is not impressed.
Terry Fox Run - Tisdale Elementary School
September 13, 2002
Inspired by the young man who attempted to run across Canada on his one leg the students of the Elementary School were out this afternoon doing their part to remember his efforts and help in the cause.
The Prime Minister was not misquoted
September 13, 2002
Walter Robinson of the Canadian Tax Payer's Federation is rather direct in his condemnation of the Prime Minister's remarks made in July but shown on CBC on Wednesday evening.
What a year for flowers!
September 12, 2002
While the year 2002 will go down as a puzzle for farmers for gardeners the remarkable development of flowers this year is a sight to behold. This page includes a 90º QuickTime VR.

Work begins on clearing and preparing lot for house number Eight
September 11, 2002
Directly across from St. Theresa Park the top soil is being stripped away in preparation for digging the basement for Tisdale's Mayor's new house.

Whose pollution will Canadians be paying to clean up?
September 11, 2002
We all share the same atmosphere all around this globe. Phyllis H. Hubeli points out the hopelessness of attempting to make a difference unilaterially.

Figures don't lie. . . but. . .
September 11, 2002
Don't say we didn't warn you. The way a politician or party conducts itself is how it will act if it ever comes to power. Paul Pelletier and Jason Inness both spotted the slippery accounting switch that the Canadian Alliance just pulled and it doesn't look good.

Today at the market
September 10, 2002
The pumpkins and melons are starting to show up and today a $2.00 bison smoky.

Start at the bottom and work up
September 10, 2002
This is our update from a week ago on the construction of a new A&W in Tisdale as the pad has been pored and work proceeds today on the removal of the surface material in preparation for gravel and later pavement.

September 10, 2002
Canadians all share a sense of deep pride in our honourable and determined Armed Forces but we are embarassed and ashamed of the way successive governments have reduced their capability and value by failing to provide them with the equipment and support they need to do the job for us. Mr. Reilly expresses his disgust for the way Paul Martin has been responsible for much of the forces neglect.
The saga of health reform in Saskatchewan: The Health Regions replace the Health Districts
September 10, 2002
The mystery of why our Medicare system is failing becomes abundantly clear when you realise that it is being run by folks in offices far away from hospitals and operating rooms. Corporate structure in its most bureaucratic form has been just jumped up one more step and Mario deSantis helps us focus on the confusion created by districts, regions and the bungling of SAHO.
Personal Television Network
September 10, 2002
Here is a simple television monitor system that lets you look remote ly at a room, yard, pool, whatever.
