Bravo to people who registered at bone marrow registry drives

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

* Bravo to the people who registered at two different bone marrow registry drives held recently in Jamestown. The University of Jamestown sponsored one drive and another was held at the Anne Carlsen Center. Both drives were held to aid and honor Josh Bond, 27 — who has acute myeloid leukemia — along with others in need of a bone marrow donor.

* Bravo to Paige Peterson of Jamestown, who was named Miss Basketball and to the Class A all-state girls basketball team. Peterson is the first Blue Jay player to receive the Miss Basketball award and only the fourth Blue Jay to make the Class A girls all-state first team. She was chosen for the honors by the North Dakota Associated Press Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association.

* Bravo to the Jamestown Police Department officers who evacuated residents of a four-plex apartment building early Saturday after a fire was reported. Police officers Dana Gerlach, Tyler Loven and Shane Gallagher evacuated the building before fire crews arrived. The three officers were also treated for smoke inhalation.

* Bravo to the Jamestown Wizards, who won the gold medal in the Adults Division I category at the Special Olympics North Dakota state tournament recently.
