What We Think: Bravo to graduates

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos and a buffalo chip this week:

*Bravo to Dina Laskowski of Jamestown, who received the North Dakota State Literacy Award at the North Dakota Reading Association Spring Conference last month in Bismarck. Laskowski retired recently from the University of Jamestown, where she was associate professor of teacher education.

*Bravo that SkyWest Airlines was again awarded the Essential Air Service contract to serve Jamestown Regional Airport. The airport has had record boardings consistently in the last year, and that’s good for Jamestown.

*Bravo to the University of Jamestown baseball team, which set a new NAIA single-season record in fielding percentage this season at .980. It tops the previous best mark of .976 set by Bellevue University (Neb.) in 2016. And bravo that the team also made it to the championship game of the NAIA opening round Oklahoma City Bracket, where it fell to Oklahoma City University 4-0 to finish the season at 45-11.

*Buffalo chip that winterkills at 13 North Dakota lakes were severe enough to affect the quality of fishing at them. The North Dakota Game and Fish Department said it investigated the winterkills and will restock where needed. Severe winterkills in this area occurred in Logan and Kidder counties.

*Bravo to students who are graduating from high schools and institutions of higher learning. Congratulations on your achievements and best wishes on your next endeavor.
