Cheers and Jeers for July 2


Cheers to Norm Mack and the City of Estevan for painting the new crosswalk markings on Petterson Drive. The residents in the area really appreciate it.

Cheers to the Estevan Mercury and Scotsburn Dental Centre for providing the children’s page every week. Children enjoy the colouring, puzzles and jokes.


Cheers to Sector 1 Construction and Renovations for organizing the bottle drive that raised so much money for the Salvation Army’s Food Bank, allowing the ministry to continue to meet the needs of the community.


Cheers to gradual addition of services for the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan. While there’s still a lot to be done, it’s good to see we can enjoy more and more activities.


Cheers to the Estevan Motor Speedway for finding a way to have fans in the stands for their next program July 5. It’s far more enjoyable to watch the races there than on pay per view.


Cheers to the programs that our children will be able to do during the summer months, regardless of whether they are in person or virtual. At least they’ll have something to keep them occupied.


Cheers to all of the great photos that we see of the beautiful scenery in the southeast. It goes to show what a wonderful area we live in.



Jeers to people complaining about loud vehicles. Are they really hurting anyone?


Jeers to the Padwick Park for having wood chips instead of sand or rubber under the play structure. So many kids have been getting injuries already this year, with slivers in their feet. There were scrapes all up a kid’s body from coming off the slide and landing on his back.


Jeers to the number of traffic tickets being handed out by members of the Estevan Police Service. In these times of financial difficulty, it makes one wonder why so many are handed out for minor traffic offences.


Jeers to those people who decide they will slander you, when they don’t really know that person and continue to gossip. They might be part of the story one day, and they won’t like what people are saying. Slander is a form of bullying.
