WASHINGTON — The unemployment rate is sinking at the fastest pace in half a century because a surprisingly large number of people in a survey of households say they’re finding work.
That picture is more encouraging than the results of a separate government survey of businesses that shows weak job growth last month. But that survey doesn’t count the self-employed and likely undercounts the nation’s smallest businesses. Also, harsh weather disrupted business payrolls in January.

Roadway repairs are currently underway along Fourth Avenue Northwest from Fifth Street to 18th Street Northwest, according to a press release from the Jamestown City Engineer’s Office. Work began Tuesday near Fifth Street Northwest.
Workers Memorial Day is held each year on April 28 to mourn workers killed and injured on the job. It is also the day that we rededicate ourselves to the fight to make our workplaces safer. We still have a long way to go.
Every year, nearly 6,000 people are killed at work. Fifty thousand workers die annually from occupational diseases and millions more are injured. The push for increased production, an influx of new workers as older, more experienced workers retire, reduced staffing levels, growing use of subcontracting and outsourcing, mandatory overtime and changes in technology and work processes all pose a threat to workers’ safety and health.
Couples who work together in a farm/ranch operation have a unique relationship. Not only are the typical stressors found in relationships present, but additional stressors related to the farm, or working together, may also have a strong presence in the relationship. While a little bit of stress is good (it helps to keep us productive), too much stress can cause problems in both the running of the farm and the couple’s relationship.

Sometime between 10 and 11 a.m. Monday, the wind hit a gust of 53 miles per hour at Jamestown, the National Weather Service reported.
That was the peak gust on a day of strong wind that made digging out and repairing damage from a weekend storm that much more difficult.
Jamestown and surrounding areas received about 4 inches of wet snow between Friday and Monday.
Water and sewer use in northwest Jamestown can return to normal now that a force main near Nickeus Park has been repaired and the lift station is operational again, according to the city engineer's office.
The Jamestown driver’s license office will remain closed through Jan. 18 because of major sewer work in the building. The Jamestown driver’s license office will continue to operate from the Valley City (N.D.) driver’s license office.
As construction begins on the new $52 million medical facility officially named the Jamestown Regional Medical Center, hospital officials are planning ahead to new equipment, specialists and staff training for it.
Jamestown Hospital President and CEO Marty Richman said the new name refers to what is already happening — the hospital is going region-wide.
