Bravo to Legion tourney volunteers, organizers

The Jamestown sun hands out these bravos this week:

* Bravo to Carrington for capturing the state Class B American Legion baseball championship in Langdon, N.D. Carrington defeated Thompson 18-6 in the championship game.

* Bravo to organizers and volunteers for making sure the Class AA state Legion tournament that was held in Jamestown went smoothly.

* Bravo to Sherry Fieber-Beyer, who had an asteroid named after her by the International Astronomical Union, the scientific body that officially names objects in the night sky. Fieber-Beyer, a Jamestown native, was one of a few dozen scientists who were honored recently by having an asteroid, comet or meteor named after them. Her asteroid, 14825 Fieber-Beyer, was discovered in 1985 at the Lowell Observatory in Arizona.

* Bravo to Temple Baptist Church in Jamestown for supporting Christian Mission Aid, a nonprofit established by Debbie Kitchel and her husband, Larry, in 1986 to assist African churches and communities in meeting people’s spiritual, physical and social needs. As people of Temple Baptist became more aware of the CMA’s needs, the church began helping the nonprofit. Someone built a house, sold it, and gave the proceeds to CMA, and a Sunday school class helped with water filters. The church also assisted with a program that provides dairy goats to widows, and another that provided families with buckets of food.
