The Jamestown hands out these bravos this week:
- Bravo to Richelle Condon, a teacher in Standing Rock, who got involved recently when she saw a baby alone in a car on a hot day at the West Acres Mall in West Fargo. The windows in the car were rolled down a few inches, and the baby appeared to be sweating and was crying. Condon called 911 and was able to get into the unlocked car to remove the baby from the vehicle. The father who is accused of leaving the baby in the vehicle was arrested; the baby, who was checked out by paramedics, was turned over to her mother.
- Bravo to the “Happy Hooligans,” the 119th Civil Engineer Squadron for North Dakota’s Air National Guard, which received the Colonel William L. Deneke Outstanding Civil Engineer Unit Award for excellence at the North Dakota Air National Guard base on June 8. The award honors the unit as the outstanding civil engineer unit of the year, selected from almost 100 civil engineer units from a one-year period in 2017-2018. The 119th CES received the Deneke Award also in 1997.
Bravo to the Helmsley Charitable Trust for awarding a $500,000 grant to Jamestown Regional Medical Center that enables the JRMC Cancer Center to open on Monday, June 17, debt free. The Cancer Center is expected to help many people with their treatment, saving them and their families travel time and the stress of travel on top of needing treatment.
