The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
* Bravo to Hugo’s for sponsoring the Family Fun Day at Jamestown Reservoir last week. The event provided free food, children’s games and a water ski team show at no charge to those attending.
* Bravo to North Dakota State University for trying to determine whether a tree native to Montana can grow in North Dakota. Dennis Roaldson of Jamestown grew the subalpine fir, the only one that exists in North Dakota, that is typically grown in Montana. NDSU will use seeds from Roaldson’s tree to try to grow enough trees to help it determine whether it can be another tree in the state’s arsenal of diversity. And bravo to Roaldson for sharing the seeds for this purpose.
* Bravo to William “Billy” Zotnick of Edgeley, for earning the Eagle Scout Award, the highest award in Boy Scouts.
* Bravo to Titan Machinery, which broke ground Tuesday for its new facility, a project estimated at $5.5 million to $6 million. The business will be located west of Jamestown Regional Medical Center when the project is completed in 2013. It will have a 55,000-square-foot parts, exposition and showroom, plus a 22,000-square-foot storage area.
* Bravo to organizers of the College Community Connection Block Party and to those who participated in the event. The party brings together Jamestown College students with the community of Jamestown. That community includes businesses, churches, organizations, employers and residents. It’s not only good for JC students to learn more about their community, it’s also good for residents to connect with students and others too.
