The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
*Bravo to the Jacob Jenkins family being reunited with their dog through Prairie Paws Rescue in Jamestown. The dog, Gizmo, had been reluctantly given to another family member after the Minot flood, but the family member felt the dog would have a better life with someone else. The dog was adopted but ultimately returned to Prairie Paws co-founder Kaye John after that didn’t work out. Through a Minot groomer, the dog was located through Prairie Paws Rescue on Facebook. Jacob and his wife, Amy, came to Jamestown last week and picked up Gizmo.
*Bravo to Jamestown Regional Medical Center employees Jeremey Schiele and Dane Grebel, who helped Walmart cashier Heather Elston when she went into labor April 19 at the store. The two were exchanging a television at the customer service desk when Elston’s water broke. They transported her in a JRMC van to the hospital, where Elston had an emergency cesarean section. She and baby Juanita are doing well.
*Bravo to the city of Jamestown and Lions Club, which are collaborating to plant about 550 trees west of Ave Maria Village. The project is intended to be a living snow fence at the old BMX track. Planting would begin at the earliest in May 2013. Some funding still needs to be secured to pay for the project, which would beautify the area and eventually serve as a way to stop snow from entering the road at 19th Street Northeast.
*Bravo to Kevin “Bubba” Miller, Jamestown resident who recently gave his award for the Jamestown Bowling Hall of Fame to his brother, Marlowe, who was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Kevin Miller has been active in the Men’s Bowling Association as an officer and in other capacities. He and Marlowe have also bowled here for 35 years.
*Bravo to the reopening of the Arts Center in Jamestown after the completion of a $500,000 renovation project. The yearlong project provides better use of the space for the center. An open house is from 1 to 4 p.m. today and Sunday for the public to check out the new digs.
