Cheers and Jeers for Oct. 22


Cheers to all of the people who were involved with the United Way Estevan’s telethon this year. It’s a wonderful tradition in the community that brings us together each year to better the lives of others.

Cheers to the creators of the beautiful hand-crafted bid items that were available at the telethon this year, and for having the ability to bid on them online before the telethon.


Cheers to the supporters of the Estevan Humane Society’s Duck Derby. Only downside was trying to purchase a rubber ducky after they were all sold out.


Cheers to Estevan for fielding such an impressive group of people for city council in the upcoming civic election. It’s especially impressive to see all the women candidates who have previous management skills and related education.


Cheers to all of the small businesses owners in southeast Saskatchewan for providing great products, excellent service, quality jobs and support for various projects in the community.


Cheers to Dennis Moore, Greg Hoffort, Lyle Yanish and Trevor Knibbs for their years of service to Estevan city council.




Jeers to the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League for the news release that was issued on a Friday night that failed to properly explain the restrictions that were going to be in place. It would have been nice to know right away that the 150-person limit was for exhibition games.


Jeers to the cohorts that we’re seeing in youth sports. How many times can a team from Estevan be expected to play a team from Weyburn?

Jeers to the people who have been speeding in the construction zones on Highway 39. Don’t put people’s lives at risk, or increase the risk of an accident, because you have to drive more than 60 kilometres per hour.
