Bravo to promoting kindness
The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos and a buffalo chip this week:
*Bravo to those people who work to make the Stutsman County Fair a success. The fair, which ran June 27-30, had good attendance, said organizers. More than 20,000 attended over the course of the four days, said Mike Williams, president of the Stutsman County Fair Board.
*Bravo to Jamestown being designated a Cardiac Ready Community, part of the Cardiac Ready Communities project. And bravo to the partnership of groups involved in the project to save and improve lives including Jamestown Area Ambulance, Emergency Training Associates, Jamestown Regional Medical Center, Central Valley Health, Two Rivers Activity Center, Stutsman County 911 Dispatch and the American Heart Association.
*Bravo to the children in the Meaningful Out Of School Time summer program at Washington Elementary School who promoted kindness in Jamestown this week by painting words on rocks and then distributing them around the community.
*Buffalo chip to the decrease in taxable sales in Jamestown during the first quarter in 2018. The quarterly report of the North Dakota Office of State Tax Commissioner said taxable sales and purchases were $50.2 million from January through March 2018, the lowest since 2011.
