The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos and buffalo chips this week:
* Bravo to those athletes competing at the Summer Olympic Games and the coaches and staff helping them achieve their goals.
* Bravo to residents of Bowdon, N.D., who are working to keep their community grocery store. Residents are trying to raise enough money — more than $62,000 — to run the store as a community cooperative. They would also be purchasing an adjoining locker plant and inventory.
* Buffalo chip to the declining numbers of participants using the supervised parks program offered through the Jamestown Parks and Recreation Department. Various activities are available through the organized program, most at no charge. We hope more children are able to take in the activities next year.
* Buffalo chip to those airlines that are requiring their pilots to fly planes with less fuel as part of an effort to cut costs. Pilots are worried about safety; the Federal Aviation Administration says it’s a business matter and that there’s no indication safety regulations are being violated.
* Bravo to Sue and Don Holmes, Edmonds, Wash., who returned old photo albums to the descendants of the Sherman family, after finding it in Don’s mother’s things following her death. The Holmeses spent time researching to find out who the albums belonged to, and then made sure the family got them.
