Bravo to Veil, volunteers for breakfast


The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

► Bravo to Valley City, one of four communities in North Dakota to be designated a Cardiac Ready Community. The program through the North Dakota Department of Health’s Division of Emergency Medical Systems and the American Heart Association seeks to help communities increase survival rates of people experiencing cardiac events. Jamestown and 21 other communities in the state are also seeking the designation.

► Bravo to North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum for signing an executive order directing certain state agencies to work with local and tribal governments and law enforcement to make medication reversing opioid overdoses available to first responders, community leaders, opioid users and their families.

► Bravo to security measures in place that thwarted hackers’ attempt to breach the voting database in North Dakota. Al Jaeger, North Dakota secretary of state, said the attempt was made more than a year ago and the office was recently notified of it by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. North Dakota was one of 21 states targeted by hackers, he said.

► Bravo to Keith Veil, who has sponsored a breakfast for 30 years for drivers and camping fans of the annual Stock Car Stampede. And bravo to the volunteers, primarily from Jamestown First Assembly, who helped with the breakfast.
