Cheers and Jeers for Oct. 8


Cheers to the Rotary Club of Estevan for Lobsterfest to Go on the weekend. It might not have been the same as the traditional event, but it was still a great night with the family.

Cheers to all of those who were involved with the canola harvest fundraiser that benefitted the Scotties-Tankard curling provincials and the Centennial Cup national junior hockey tournament.


Cheers to the firefighters in southeast Saskatchewan for the difference they make in our communities, and for taking time out of their lives to keep us safe.


Cheers to the Estevan Chamber of Commerce for organizing candidates’ forums for the upcoming provincial and civic elections. While people might not be able to attend, they are still a good opportunity to hear the candidates’ thoughts on the issues.


Cheers to the different businesses in town having fundraisers for the upcoming United Way Estevan telethon. It’s important to keep thinking of ways to support the telethon, even if the fundraisers can’t happen in their traditional format.


Cheers to the reopening of the Estevan Public Library. The renovations were beneficial, the library looks great and it’s important to have this valuable service.



Jeers to the ongoing delays in starting up youth hockey, high school sports and other sporting activities. We could make youth baseball and football work; why not high school football and minor hockey?


Jeers to those who insist on blocking the sidewalk when they park their vehicles. If you have to block the sidewalk when you park in the driveway, then it means you should park in the street and actually walk to the house.


Jeers to those who don’t stop when they see a school bus with its stop sign extended and its red lights flashing.
