Cheers and Jeers for Oct. 15


Cheers to a very friendly gentleman fishing at the Rafferty Dam docks on Oct 4. Mr. MacLeod, you made a young boy so happy. Thank you for the tips, the stories, and your kindness. The young man lost both his grandfathers in the last four years, and Mr. MacLeod has no idea how special it was for him to fish with someone.

Cheers to everyone who had a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend this year. Despite the times we’re in, you can still have some semblance of a family get together.


Cheers to the Estevan Bruins and the Estevan Gymnastics Club for the competition they had last week. You could tell people on both sides were having a lot of fun with it.


Cheers to the people who are working in the testing site for COVID-19 in Estevan. They’re running an effective operation and they don’t waste your time when you’re in there.


Cheers to everyone who has let their name stand in a municipal or school board election this fall. Thank you for trying to make a difference in your community, and good luck if you’re in an election.



Jeers to those who have allowed their tree branches grow unchecked to the point where they are obstructing sidewalks. With the nice weather we’ve had recently, people are still out walking and shouldn’t have to worry about those branches.


Jeers to the nightmare of trying to drop off and pick up your child at the Estevan Comprehensive School. You don’t have to do it right at the front entrance; a bit of a walk isn’t going to hurt them.


Jeers to the lack of communication from Sask. Health regarding recent COVID cases. While it’s good we’re no longer saying they’re in the south, at least let us know if they’re in Estevan.
