Cheers and Jeers for April 8


Cheers to everybody who supported the fundraiser for Mason Wigley, whether it be by donating an item or purchasing something. It truly is amazing what a generous community we live in, and how we’re always willing to support each other.

Cheers to all of the organizations offering something for kids to do during the Easter break. Any chance that these programs can be extended by a couple more weeks now that the kids will be learning online?

Cheers to the various fun activities that were happening for Easter. Easter egg hunts and scavenger hunts can still occur during a pandemic.

Cheers to Paul Twietmeyer for the great mural, paying tribute to front-line workers, that now appears on the Carlyle Memorial Hall building. 

Cheers to all of the great stories we saw in the Mercury last month on the Women of Estevan, with profiles of women in the community and some wonderful in-depth articles as well.

Cheers to the Emde family on winning the Farm Family of the Year Award. They have done so much to excel in farming, and they’re also a big part of the Midale area.



Jeers to the Canada Revenue Agency for keeping a local resident on hold for three hours and then disconnecting the call. The person tried to get through all day, only to be told the lines were all busy and to try again later. After three hours it was beyond frustrating.

Jeers to the people complaining that the schools have moved to online learning for two weeks after the Easter break. Many of them are the same people who are not following guidelines and not wearing masks when they should be.

Jeers to the last mobile blood donor clinic in Estevan. There will be a lot of people who give who aren’t going to be able to travel to Regina or Weyburn to donate now.
