Green Bison Soy Processing groundbreaking named top story

The groundbreaking of the $350 million Green Bison Soy Processing facility at Spiritwood is the top news story for Jamestown in 2022 as selected by the news staff of The Jamestown Sun.

Green Bison Soy Processing is a 75%-25% venture between Archer Daniels Midland Co. and Marathon Petroleum Corp., respectively. The soybean processing facility at the Spiritwood Energy Park Association industrial park about 10 miles east of Jamestown is expected to be online by the 2023 harvest.

Green Bison Soy Processing will process 150,000 bushels of soybeans per day into oil, meal and fiber. The oil will be refined, bleached and sent to the Marathon refinery in Dickinson, North Dakota, to be further refined into renewable diesel.

Emergency declaration approved for snowfall events

The Jamestown City Council unanimously approved an emergency declaration for the city of Jamestown experiencing multiple heavy snowfall events that lasted several weeks with the recovery period still ongoing.


The City Council’s action on Wednesday, Dec. 28, also authorizes Mayor Dwaine Heinrich to sign the emergency declaration and the submission of necessary documents to the North Dakota Department of Emergency Services in order to seek federal and state financial assistance.

No end date was put on the emergency declaration.

The emergency declaration says the city of Jamestown experienced multiple snowfall events followed by subzero temperatures and multiple days of blizzard-like conditions beginning on Dec. 12. It says the city will likely see additional snowfall and related snow events as winter continues and anticipates the cost and expertise of implementing additional measures to the city will exceed its resources.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
