The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos and buffalo chips this week:
*Bravo to the Fort Seward Wagon Train, which traveled to Fullerton, N.D., this week. More than 150 participants took part in the wagon train.
*Bravo to the Jamestown Regional Airport Authority for pressing Great Lakes Aviation and Delta Airlines to improve service and air fares for travel. Boardings dropped in recent months after Great Lakes took over the Essential Air Service contract.
*Buffalo chip to the thieves who broke into the Buffalo Mall and Riddle’s Jewelry early Sunday, smashing glass mall doors and Riddle’s display cases and stealing jewelry.
*Bravo to the mission group from St. John’s Lutheran Church that helped haul hundreds of gallons of water out of a Lutheran church basement when heavy rains flooded Duluth, Minn. The group was in Duluth for another purpose when the storm struck.
*Buffalo chip to those responsible for vandalism and fire incidents recently in Jamestown. About $5,000 in damage occurred to the former Aggregate Industries site over a series of vandalism incidents in May and a fire was reported in the former C.H. Carpenter Lumber yard last week. Seven teenagers were referred to juvenile authorities in the vandalism case; four other juveniles were referred in the fire case.
*Bravo to Lexus Haut, who received the Rainbow of Hope Award from Shriners Hospital for Children in recognition of her positive attitude, contributions to her community and for overcoming challenges. Haut was born with syndactyly (her fingers were encapsulated in skin). She received treatment at the hospital for the condition at a very young age and completed treatment at age 18. Haut was one of three patients to receive the Rainbow of Hope Award this year.
