The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
* Bravo to Paul Wiest, who works to bring the Nativity story to life every Christmas at St. James Basilica. Wiest, a Lutheran, has been working for the Catholic church here since 1984.
* Bravo to Jamestown College seniors Kayla Fee and Ali Edwards for being named to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics’ volleyball All-American honorable mention list.
* Bravo to the Big Dog Party, the annual event to make sure children in need in Jamestown get Christmas presents.
* Bravo to the Jamestown family who helped return a missing dog to the Browning family in Bismarck. No one knows how the dog made the 100-mile trip to Jamestown.
* Bravo to the five Carrington, N.D., families who are opening their homes Sunday for the Carrington Health Center Auxiliary’s Holiday Tour of Homes. The tour raises funds for the health center.
* Bravo to Iziaya Church, the 3 1/2-year-old Jamestown boy who warned his mother and grandmother of a fire in their apartment building the morning of Dec. 1. Jamestown Fire Department Chief Jim Reuther said Iziaya saved several lives by sounding the alarm.
* Bravo to Arts After School, the Arts Center program that gives students a special experience on weekday afternoons. The program is in its 10th year.
* Bravo to blood donors, as especially those who donate around the holidays, which is when donations tend to drop. One opportunity to donate will be next week from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday at St. John’s Lutheran Church.
