Cheers and Jeers for Feb. 14

Cheers to the volunteers that make up the Southeast Sask. Search and Rescue chapter. It’s great to have them all as such a dedicated part of the region. Hopefully they never have to use their new skill set, but it’s good to know they are ready if needed. And thank you to the Mercury staff for choosing to cover this story so we readers know what is happening in our area.

Cheers to the Estevan Humane Society for the Whiskers and Wine Gala, and for bringing in great local talent to entertain the crowd while supporting a worthy cause.

Cheers to the Estevan Arts Council for bringing Chris Funk to Estevan. It was the type of show that can be very entertaining for adults and children alike.

Cheers to all of the great entertainment that was offered at the Estevan Comprehensive School last week during the McLeod Series basketball games, and to the fans of both teams for being so supportive.

Cheers to the excellent presentation by Doug Griffiths at the Days Inn on Tuesday night. He offered a lot of good ideas for people in the community to consider.

Cheers to those who received awards for hunting and fishing from the Estevan Wildlife Federation. What many don’t realize is many of these people are also conservationists and strong supporters of the outdoors and the environment.



Jeers to the work stoppage at the Co-op Refinery, the conduct of the members of the union, and the problems that this has caused for so many people, most notably first responders.

Jeers to businesses that feel the need to close early. If it says you’re open until 5 p.m., then stay open until 5 p.m., not 4:45 p.m.

Jeers to those who illegally park in handicapped stalls. You might think it’s just for a couple of minutes, but during that time, someone might come along who truly needs it.
