Cheers and Jeers for July 30


Cheers to people who keep their back lanes nicely trimmed and/or planted with flowers or gardens. It’s nice to admire them on daily walks.

Cheers to the SARCAN recycling depot for their drop and go recycling service. It’s super convenient and payment was ready within 24 hours. 

Cheers to those who organized the community graduation celebration that took place in Lampman on Saturday. It was wonderful to see so many people out, and to see the kids dressed in their finest clothes.

Cheers to the City of Estevan for the summer swim camps that have been happening at the RM of Estevan Aquatic Centre this summer. It’s great to see this option available for the kids.

Cheers to the organizations that have been offering activities for children this summer, even if the programs have been happening online. 

Cheers to the condition of the Preddy Trails in Woodlawn Regional Park. They are a great option for exercise and for viewing the wildlife residing in the park.

Cheers to the provincial Grant Devine government from years back. Now we’re about to have good water for Estevan. What would we do now without the water from Rafferty Dam?



Jeers to drivers who continually speed on residential streets and don’t stop at stop signs. 

Jeers to those who insist on running red lights. It’s even worse when the light has been red for more than a second, and the driver showed no intention of stopping.  

Jeers to the woman who lets her two dogs run loose by the Estevan Comprehensive School and the track and field facility. They chase wildlife and other people's dogs. 

Jeers to the businesses in town that don’t know how to tighten down toilet bowl seats.
