Bravos to hand out this week
The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
* Bravo to newspaper carriers, auto service workers, restaurant and grocery personnel, emergency workers, gas station attendants and other individuals who worked during Monday and Tuesday's storms. Those workers provided various goods and services on days when many residents were able to stay home. And bravo to those firefighters from the Jamestown Fire Department who actually stayed at the fire station for two days during the storms.
* Bravo to the Jamestown City Council for declaring a flood emergency. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers believes releases could possibly reach 1,800 cubic feet per second in the spring. Although this isn't known for sure, the council's flood emergency declaration now opens the door for assistance from the corps in this issue.
* Bravo to the Kidder County Lady Pirates for winning the Class B girls state championship Saturday in Grand Forks. The team defeated the Fordville-OLankin-Park River Flyers 45-43. The thrilling finish came right down to the buzzer.
* Bravo to the reopening of a recycling center in Jamestown. Renaissance Recycling took ownership of the recycling center business in Jamestown originally owned and managed by Helen and Gary Rosenau of 4 R's Recycling in Carrington, N.D. We know residents want a recycling center and we hope they support it.
* Bravo to Carolina Stromberg, Mareike Geyer and Anthoula Hanse for sharing their stories in a panel discussion on "Overcoming Gender Barriers," sponsored by American Association of University Women. The presentation was in recognition of International Women's Day.
