The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
* Bravo to the Character in Leadership conference held this week at Jamestown College. The third annual conference focuses on ethics and is designed not only for students but also the community.
* Bravo to the organizers and participants at the 37th annual Stock Car Stampede. Organizers said 289 cars took part, only five short of the all-time record set in 2007.
* Bravo to the availability of NotiFind, a security system now on North Dakota state campuses that students can sign up for to receive notice of emergencies. The messages would come through e-mail, text messages and phone calls. While it has received criticism for providing “an illusion of proper security,” we think having this option can provide some direction and awareness in the event an emergency occurs.
* Bravo to students at Roosevelt Elementary School for growing vegetables and fruits through a grant received from the Love Your Veggies Nationwide School Lunch Campaign. The students later shared their bounty with parents at a school supper. And bravo to school staff who made it happen.
* Bravo to five Midwest states that are working together through the Upper Midwest Transmission Development Initiative to develop a regional electric transmission system to boost wind energy development. North Dakota, Wisconsin and Iowa have been partners and South Dakota and Minnesota have just come on board.
* Bravo to Jamestown College Alumni Hall of Fame recipients the Rev. Leonard Dahl, U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson, Dr. Ida Allen Bergman and Jeremy Wells.
