Cheers and Jeers for June 10


Cheers to seeing kids out playing baseball and softball at ball diamonds in the community once again. It’s really encouraging to see them out having fun again.

Cheers to the local chapter of the Métis Society of Saskatchewan for organizing the vigil in honour of the 215 children whose remains were discovered in Kamloops, B.C., earlier this month. This topic needs to remain at the forefront of our conversation.


Cheers to the Estevan Oilfield Technical Society for hosting the golf event at the TS&M Woodlawn Golf Course. Everybody who entered seemed to have a great time.


Cheers to the opening of the splash parks in Estevan. The timing couldn’t have been better, either, with the hot temperatures we had in the area on the weekend.


Cheers to the quality discussion that we’ve seen at Estevan city council meetings this year. The meetings have usually lasted more than an hour, proving that there is more than enough material to have two meetings a month.


Cheers to the quotation marks remaining around Estevan on the city’s water tower. Some might scoff at them, but they are distinctive and they set the community apart.



Jeers to the people who always complain. They have nothing better to do. Enjoy the beautiful days, smell the roses and have a coffee.


Jeers to the poor signage for the heavy truck traffic needing to detour off of Fourth Street. No wonder there is so much truck traffic going down residential roads when they don’t know where to go.


Jeers to the employee(s) of a local business who locked up their garden centre, leaving a customer stranded inside. The customer had to call for assistance from another employee attending to the carts in the parking lot.
