Cheers and Jeers for Jan. 11

Cheers to the doctor and staff in the emergency department at St. Joseph's Hospital on Jan. 2. They provided excellent patient care.

Cheers to the homeowners who brightened the city with displays of Christmas lights. It was a pleasure to drive through Woodlawn Regional Park and the well-lit streets.

Cheers to those who organized winter activities for youths during the Christmas break, such as the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum.

Cheers to those who want to bring a Search and Rescue Saskatchewan Association of Volunteers chapter to the southeast region.

Cheers to those who shovel the sidewalks of friends and neighbours who aren’t able to do the work themselves.


Jeers to those who seem to think the Yellow Vest Movement is against immigrants and refugees. There is a big difference between someone who has gone through the legal process and someone who has hopped the border illegally.

Jeers to the driver of a white pickup truck who ran a red light at the intersection of Souris Avenue South and Fourth Street, and didn’t even make an effort to slow down or stop.

Jeers to motorists who fail to use their signal lights when turning. It’s a simple courtesy for everyone else near you on the road.

Jeers to those who opted against winter tires for their vehicles. While there isn’t much snow on the ground, winter tires still keep you from sliding around.

Jeers to people who feel the need to have their noisy trucks idle for hours. It’s one thing if it needs to stay warm, but for three hours every night seems excessive.
