What We Think: Bravo to Geronimo Energy for Courtenay grants

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week: *Bravo to the Oakes Times, which published a newspaper only a few days after a fire destroyed its building on Feb. 25. The weekly newspaper published as usual the following Thursday, not missing an issue.

*Bravo to Geronimo Energy, for fulfilling a promise to provide $800,000 to fund community grants for Courtenay over the next 20 years. The fund will provide up to $40,000 per year for projects that directly benefit “the entire community touched by Geronimo Energy’s wind farms.” The projects will be awarded by the Courtenay Community Fund Advisory Board.

*Bravo to the participants in the annual New Year, New You Wellness Challenge, which wrapped up after lasting eight weeks. The challenge had 300 participants who lost 200 pounds while learning more about healthy living.

Editorials are the opinion of Jamestown Sun management and the newspaper’s editorial board.
