Bravo to Knoblich for years of service

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

*Bravo to Larry Knoblich, who served on the Jamestown Parks and Recreation Commission for 36 years. Knoblich did not seek re-election this year.

*Bravo to employees and inmates at the North Dakota State Hospital for working to replace headstones in the hospital’s two cemeteries. All of the broken and unreadable headstones in the original cemetery have been replaced, while work continues on the headstones at the larger cemetery. And bravo to Shirley Jacobchick of Bismarck, who photographed and researched the cemeteries, enabling people researching records to find them online. Jacobchick photographed more than 2,000 graves and created a database for them.

*Bravo to Jamestown Regional Medical Center Family Birthplace, which was one of two North Dakota birthing hospitals chosen to take part in the Centers for Disease Control EMPower Training Initiative. The initiative provides training focusing on safe implementation of maternity care practices that support optimal infant nutrition. JRMC was one of 90 hospitals nationwide chosen for the initiative. The other North Dakota hospital chosen for the program was Sanford Health, Bismarck.
