Cheers:

Cheers to the tow truck drivers who were out in the frigid weather conditions to give people’s vehicles a boost last week. They definitely earned their wages.

 

Cheers to those who offered rides to individuals who don’t have a licence, or those whose had vehicles that didn’t start last week. People still have places to go during the frigid temperatures.

 

Cheers to the Estevan Lions Club for offering free swims at the Leisure Centre this week, and ensuring that the kids have another activity to enjoy during the week off school.

 

Cheers to the Harris family for their efforts to help others during these trying times for so many. Their story that was in last week’s edition of the Mercury was a real inspiration for so many.

 

Cheers to Tourism Estevan for their efforts to promote the different things that can be done in the Estevan area during the winter months. It’s good that we’re still able to have fun.

 

Cheers to all of the long-time sweethearts out there who have served as inspiration and great examples for the younger generations. Hopefully they were able to find a way to enjoy Valentine’s Day this year.

 

Jeers:

 

Jeers to the provincial government’s vaccine rollout plan. Yes, there should be an emphasis on age, but professions like law enforcement personnel and teachers should also be priorities.

 

Jeers to the litter bugs who are leaving their cigarette butts and food wrappers in the ditches. Since we don’t have much snow this year, the trash isn’t being covered up, and it’s an eyesore at the city’s entrances.

 

Jeers to those who have been speeding through school zones or not obeying stopping arms on school buses. During the final four months of the school year, let’s resolve to do better to keep our kids safe.
