The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos and buffalo chip this week:
- Bravo to 8th Avenue Food and Provisions for planning a $2 million upgrade to the grain-receiving facility at the Dakota Growers Pasta plant at Carrington, North Dakota. The upgrade will improve the efficiency of the grain purchasing and receiving process and will cut the time truck drivers and farmers spend making deliveries of grain at the plant.
- Bravo to the recent rains that helped reduce drought conditions in the area. While too late for this growing season, the rains will provide soil moisture for next year's crops.
- Buffalo chip to the projected decline of North Dakota's cottonwood trees. Weather volatility and the age of the trees are causing a decline in the species along the Missouri River and elsewhere in the state.
- Bravo to the dedication of the joint-use Charlotte & Gordon Hansen Stadium on the campus of the University of Jamestown. The $11.7 million joint capital project between the university and Jamestown Public School District was made possible largely through the efforts of donations. The facility will be the home field of the university and Jamestown High School football programs.
