Cheers and Jeers for June 25


Cheers to all the staff at SARCAN. Having just reopened last week, they had everything running as smoothly and efficiently as possible. The staff member at the front, Rebecca, directing traffic is great.

Cheers to the elementary schools of Estevan for the celebrations they are having for the graduating Grade 8 students. It means a lot to the kids and their families to have this.


Cheers to the reopening of the spray parks and the paddling pools, and the fact there will be a season for the playparks. These are very important for kids during the summer months.


Cheers to the minor sports organizations that have been patiently waiting to have their seasons. Thankfully they didn’t cancel their seasons. Kids are looking forward to playing these sports again.


Cheers to everyone who continues to think of the seniors who are confined to their building due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and don’t have regular contact with loved ones. The letters and cards make a big difference.


Cheers to the Class of 2020 legacy project taking place in Torgeson Park this year. Not only does the Class of 2020 deserve this tribute, but it will be a nice addition to the park.



 Jeers to the Estevan board of police commissioners for going against the doctors’ diagnosis when it comes to the case involving Const. Jay Pierson. Mental health is no joke and should be taken seriously.


Jeers to the parking tickets being handed out as the businesses downtown try to go back to some sort of normal. Many were out of work for two or more months and the last thing they should have to worry about is finding a parking ticket on their windshield.


Jeers to all the dudes who decide to amplify the muffler sounds on your vehicles. It leaves the rest of us asking one obvious question: why?
