Cheers and Jeers for August 16



article continues below

Cheers to the Estevan Wildlife Federation for putting on the youth conservation camp. The kids learned a lot, and it’s now held in a wonderful facility.


Cheers to the Souris Valley Trekkers for continuing to organize the Roche Percee Trail Ride and Wagon Trek, and for showcasing all of the hidden gems in the area when it comes to scenery.


Cheers to the Estevan Police Service and the Estevan Special Olympics for continuing to have a fun softball game each year. The kids get a kick out of playing the cops.


Cheers to the growing number of organizations and agencies offering summer camps in the city, and giving kids plenty of options when it comes to their summer activities.


Cheers to the local Metis community for the event that they offered in Hitchcock on the weekend. Lots of fun and knowledge about Metis culture.




Jeers to the number of motorists who continue to speed on Petterson Drive. It’s becoming an increasingly dangerous area, and the police should be spending more time patrolling the area.


Jeers to the lack of line painting on the Shand Access Road and some of the other roads outside of the city. It’s especially dangerous in the areas where the speed limit exceeds 60 kilometres per hour.


Jeers to those who don’t comprehend how to drive at an uncontrolled intersection. Just because they’re being phased out doesn’t mean people don’t have to know how to drive around them.


Jeers to those who unnecessarily yield the right of way. You might think you’re doing other motorists a favour, but you’re not.
