JSSP Bravos
We are part of The Trust Project.

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

  • Bravo to the Blue Jays for winning the Class A state football title at the Fargodome. The Blue Jays defeated Bismarck St. Mary's 41-27 on Friday afternoon.
  • Bravo to our veterans for their service to their country. Veterans Day was Nov. 11, and bravo to the All Vets Club for holding activities in Jamestown to celebrate their service.
  • Bravo to students at Gussner Elementary School, who raised more than $300 for the James River Humane Society. On Oct. 29, students could wear a costume to school if they brought a monetary donation for the humane society. The activity sponsored by the Gussner Student Council raised $335.
  • Bravo to the Jamestown High School girls swimming and diving team and the 12 members who qualified for the state event this week in Bismarck and Mandan.
  • Bravo to the U.S. land border opening this week to nonessential Canadian travel.
  • Bravo to John Ballantyne and Vicky Berg of Fargo, who donated $2 million to the Anne Carlsen Center new campus project. The new campus will be located east of Jamestown Regional Medical Center, and officials broke ground on the project in October.
  • Bravo to plans for a 180-mile water trail in North Dakota. A Forum story reported that the trail along the Sheyenne River is being developed through Griggs, Barnes, Ransom and Richland counties from Lake Ashtabula to the southern end of the Sheyenne National Grassland. Grants will pay for the project.
  • Bravo to Clarabell Demers of Grafton, N.D., who turned 111 this month. Demers lives at Lutheran Sunset Home in Grafton and is believed to be North Dakota's oldest living resident.

Editorials are the opinion of Jamestown Sun management and the newspaper’s editorial board.
