What We Think: Bravo to JHS LifeSmarts teams

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

* Bravo to Jamestown High School’s No. 1 team that took first in the state LifeSmarts championship this week in Bismarck. The team will compete in the national LifeSmarts championship. And bravo to the No. 2 team, which placed second at the state competition. JHS teams have won the state championship for five years in a row.

* Bravo to Project Heat, spearheaded by the Williston Evangelical Ministerial Alliance, the Salvation Army, Saving Grace and New Hope. A crew camp owner offered space to Project Heat members to help shelter people in Williston who don’t have a place to stay. On Monday, Project Heat began sheltering 10 people at the undisclosed location. The project only has 10 beds available, but it’s possible that could expand in the future. The project will run through March.

* Bravo to the passage of the long-awaited new farm bill. President Barack Obama signed the bill on Feb. 7.

* Bravo to Dakota Medical Foundation and the Impact Foundation for hosting the Giving Hearts Day fundraising event. Online donations of $10 to $4,000 to participating nonprofits were matched by Dakota Medical Foundation in the seventh annual event. At least 28 nonprofits with ties to Jamestown and/or Stutsman County participated.
