Cheers to the Public Health COVID vaccination team for the long hours and many days of dedicated service to keeping your community safe. 


Cheers to the two men in the black Corvette who stopped and offered assistance last week. A woman had taken a bad fall while out walking and these men were concerned enough to stop and offer their assistance.  


Cheers to the arrival of a new physician in the Estevan area, and to the committee that continues to work hard to bring medical doctors to the Energy City.  


Cheers to the teachers in southeast Saskatchewan who adapted to offering remote learning during the past two weeks. They did their best to keep teaching our kids during this challenging time. But it’s good to see that most kids are back in the classroom. 


Cheers to all of the people we’re seeing out walking and jogging throughout the city. The pandemic has cut down on the things that we can do, but it can’t keep us from enjoying outdoor physical activity.  




Jeers to those who have been criticizing Future Signs for having an ad that calls for an end to restrictions. It’s a business. Someone wanted to pay money for an ad on their electronic billboard. It’s not necessarily an endorsement. It’s no different than if they were to accept an ad calling for restrictions to continue. 

Jeers to those who are speeding through playground and school zones. Now that it’s warming up once again, young people and families will be out enjoying physical activities.


Jeers to those complaining about restaurants and other businesses that are closing down amid the higher COVID cases in the area. They’re doing something very responsible and looking out for the safety of employees and customers.
