Tim's Tip of the Day

The system of solving disputes has evolved from the days of Henry II with the establishment of "common law" it continues to grow and evolve. It is as good as we make use of it and the constant attempts by the public and politicians to want to invent some other form of conflict management is foolish as it ignores over 1,100 years of adjustments.

Eduardo Galeano's deep understanding of U.S. unsecure prosperity: defending the dollar by sending Marines and by assuming markets
September 5, 2003
By: Mario deSantis
Mario deSantis wrote this story Wednesday, it is important to note this fact because today several world economists in an international meeting in Calgary reported their extreme distress at the US economy which appears not only to be in serious trouble but is also running up the biggest deficit in recent history. Several US politicans referred to the growing unemployment and rising debt yesterday while the Dow dropped 84 points today.

Early Birds
September 5, 2003
by: Timothy W. Shire
Certainly the season has accellerated with harvest almost complete here but it seems pretty warm and extremely early for geese who often do not leave until late October, to be forming up migration flocks.

September 4, 2003

by: Walter Robinson

Thoughts on marriage and same sex marriage
September 4, 2003
by: Cassandra Loiselle
Reacting to Barbara Reid's expression of her thoughts on the use of the term "marriage" in a same sex union Cassandra Loiselle of Winnipeg takes a quite opposing view and with it quotes one of the greatest poets of the last century. This is not a long discussion but one you definitely need to read.

Bottom Of The Page Picture of the Day

We have lived in Tisdale since the summer of 1995 and this is the first time I have seen this field without a bin for sale. It looks like the Beeland Co-op has sold off the last bin left over from assembled in the spring of 2002, no new bins were added this past spring following the disasterous.
