Cheers and Jeers for Jan. 17

Cheers to the people of Torquay and Alameda for hosting the Adam Harold Legacy Camp for young hockey players in the communities. Their dedication to these organizations does not go unnoticed.

Cheers to the City of Estevan for not having a property tax increase for the second straight year. It’s good to hear that people’s concerns are being heard.

Cheers to the Estevan Minor Hockey Association for hosting an atom house tournament, and giving those kids a chance to be in the spotlight.

Cheers to everyone who has been working outside in these frigid temperatures this week. Some people have to keep working, even when there’s an extreme cold advisory.

Cheers to the Random Acts of Kindness Club at the Estevan Comprehensive School for all that they do to improve their school and community. It was great to see the article in the paper.

Cheers to the Wheeler family for the way they represented Bienfait and other parts of the province during Family Feud Canada on Monday night. Such an incredible story, too.


Jeers to the fact that NewsBreak has not been appearing around town lately. A lot of people enjoy reading it at restaurants or while waiting for appointments. (Editor’s Note: We appreciate the concern about Newsbreak. We are working on some changes to the publication, and you can look forward to a new and improved design, with many of the same features you’ve always enjoyed.

Jeers to the lack of signing for the truck bypass north of Estevan. Everyone complains about the semi trucks that still pass through the city since the bypass was built. Wouldn’t it help unfamiliar truck drivers if there was a large sign at the entrances to the bypass?

Jeers to the number of homeowners who still haven’t shovelled their sidewalks. Just because it’s been cold out doesn’t mean you get a pass on shoveling snow.
