Cheers and Jeers for July 9


Cheers to the City of Estevan and Tim Hortons for putting in the new splash park, music structures and playground equipment at the Dennis Moore Centennial Park. Recent visitors to the city were really impressed, as the park is beautiful with many picnic tables under trees and the kids had so much safe fun.

Cheers to the great fireworks display offered by the City of Estevan on July 1. The show went ahead despite a thunderstorm that rolled through shortly before the fireworks were to start. It proved to be a great night.


Cheers to all of the communities and organizations that were able to offer something for Canada Day. It’s not easy to do with all of the restrictions that are now in place, but a lot of people appreciated these activities to help celebrate Canada’s 153rd birthday.


Cheers to the fact that the playparks in Estevan are now open, and the RM of Estevan Aquatic Centre is to open next week. Looking forward to when ice is installed at Affinity Place, too.


Cheers to the St. Joseph’s Healthcare Auxiliary for their continued efforts to support the St Joseph’s Hospital and to raise funds for healthcare in the community.


Cheers to everybody who supported the car auction for the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation. That money will be put to a good use for healthcare in our community.




Jeers to those who are complaining about petty issues. Stop being such a whiner all your life.


Jeers to whoever is responsible for the miscommunication with the Estevan Motor Speedway over when they can have races with fans in the stands. The speedway’s board, volunteers, drivers and fans deserve better, and they should have been able to race July 5.


Jeers to the lack of sidewalks in the east edge of the city. You’re taking your life into your own hand when you walk down Kensington Avenue, or the eastern blocks of Fourth Street and Perkins Street.
