The Jamestown hands out these bravos this week:
- Bravo to the self-guided walking tour in Jamestown that spotlights the life of Louis L’Amour, an author and Jamestown native whose books on the Western genre have captured the imagination of millions of people. The six-stop walking tour features the site of his home, Alfred Dickey Library, CSi Franklin School, Gladstone Inn, 1883 Stutsman County Courthouse and First United Methodist Church.
- Bravo to Whitney (Carlson) Bruins of Jamestown, who will be inducted into the North Dakota High School Track and Field Hall of Fame this weekend in Bismarck. Bruins was a former Carrington track and field standout, winning 17 individual state titles and two state relay titles. She still holds overall state records in the long jump, 300 hurdles, 100 hurdles and Class B record in the 200. At North Dakota State University, she was a five-time NCAA Division I All-American.
- Bravo to Gordon Iseminger, the longest-serving state employee who is retiring after serving 57 years as a distinguished professor at the University of North Dakota. Iseminger taught local and European history.
