Cheers and Jeers for Sept. 14

Cheers to the Estevan Humane Society for organizing the Duck Derby on the weekend. Fun activities for the entire family.

Cheers to 20 years for the Ride for Ronald McDonald House. This year might have been one of the best years yet.

Cheers to the opening of the Lampman Family Centre. It’s a nice addition for the town.

Cheers to the return of junior hockey season. Hopefully the Power Dodge Estevan Bruins can take the final step this year and win it all.

Cheers to the 100 Kids who Care group for their efforts to encourage children to give. Hopefully the children develop an appreciation for charity.


Jeers to parents that use electronic devices as substitute parents. There are too many children who spend too much time with their heads buried in those devices.

Jeers to drivers ignoring the light at the intersection of King Street and Arthur Avenue when it is red. It’s a crosswalk, but that doesn’t mean you can blow through the solid red traffic light when pedestrians are halfway across the road.

Jeers to the parents who left two diapers in front of the Estevan Shoppers Mall entrance on Sept. 7. Find and use a garbage can.

Jeers to the people responsible for the phone calls claiming to be with the Canada Revenue Agency. It’s amazing that this scam is still circulating the community.

Jeers to those who continue to insist on texting while driving, and creating an unsafe driving environment for everyone else.
