The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
* Bravo to Betty Brosz, certified nursing assistant at Ave Maria Village, who has earned a reputation for going above the call of duty after 45 years working at the nursing home.
* Bravo to all the people who came to the aid of motorists trapped during the blizzard last week. More than 800 people were rescued from stranded vehicles during and after the March 11 storm and many people throughout the state gave food and shelter to those in need.
* Bravo to Matthew McIntyre, the Jamestown High School student who plays the double bass in the Bismarck-Mandan Symphony Orchestra. McIntyre is one of five high-school age students in the 100-member BMSO.
* Bravo to the group of five Ohio men who drove to Fargo earlier this month to help with sandbagging to prepare the city for flooding expected this spring. Darrell Johnson, Doug Decker, Bob Geiger, Andy Brooker and Gideon Swartzentruber came in response to a Facebook post by a Fargo pastor asking for help.
* Bravo to Kristi Huber, Fargo, for her work volunteering in the Big Brother/Big Sister program to help guide a young woman over the course of eight years and helped her change her life. Thanks to her, Amber Hettwer is deciding which college to attend.
* Bravo to the delegation that traveled to Denmark earlier this month to research cellulosic ethanol. The delegation included Jamestown Mayor Katie Andersen, Sen. Terry Wanzek, R-Jamestown, Reps. Craig Headland, R-Montpelier, and Phillip Mueller, D-Valley City, Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring and representatives from Great River Energy, the Great Plains Institute, North Dakota Farm Bureau and North Dakota Grain Growers.
* Bravo to Larry and Joan Knoblich and the many volunteers who make this weekend’s 33rd annual Runnin O’ the Green possible. Their work provides a good time for thousands of people and raises thousands of dollars for people in need.
