Bravo to those helping Neb. ranchers
The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
- Bravo to Meghan Ford of Jamestown High School, who broke another JHS record on April 5. Ford broke the girls indoor 800 meters record at the Bison Indoor Classic in Fargo with a time of 2 minutes, 16.88 seconds. The previous record was set in 1989 by Jenny Schmeichel with a time of 2:17:34. Ford, a sophomore, also broke the all-time 3,200 school record -- indoor or outdoor -- on March 16 and the 1,600 indoor record on March 22.
Bravo to those who are providing hay to ranchers in Nebraska from North Dakota. Farm Rescue, farmers and ranchers and others provided about 170 bales of hay that were taken to Nebraska starting Sunday. Cash donations from the public helped cover some of the transportation costs and truckers donated their time and equipment. Flooding in Nebraska has destroyed hay and affected pastures.
