The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:
- Bravo to the National Buffalo Museum for expanding the experience of visitors with planned tours this year of the buffalo herd at the museum. Pasture tours that consist of guided trips using a museum vehicle to view the herd are expected although some details remain to be completed. North Dakota Tourism provided a $15,000 grant to begin the project, said Ilana Xinos, executive director of the museum. The goal of the project is to present information about the modern bison industry.
- Bravo to Great River Energy for contributing $250,000 to the city of Jamestown toward the replacement of the ladder truck for the Jamestown Fire Department. A symbolic check was presented on Feb. 13 at the Fire Department. Ladder 1 was purchased with equipment replacement funds and fundraising is ongoing to repay the more than $1 million truck that is expected to serve residents and the area.
- Bravo to the Blue Jay girls hockey team, which is headed for state after defeating Dickinson 8-1 on Feb. 12. The state tournament will begin Feb. 23 and Jamestown will play at Fargo North/South that day. The tournament semifinals, third place and championship games will be in Grand Forks on Feb. 26-27.
- Bravo to Molly Musland, a junior forward for LaMoure/Litchville-Marion girls basketball, who hit 1,000 career points on Feb. 15 at the District 5 Girls Basketball Tournament in Jamestown. Musland also set a new school record with 34 points scored in a single game.
