What we think: Essential Air Service pays off at JRA

August 26, 2011 in The Jamestown Sun

Just three locations in North Dakota including Jamestown receive funding under the federal Essential Air Service (EAS) program, which gives airlines incentive not to drop the lesser traveled routes. It’s a program that Congress should continue.

What we think: Bravo to record oil production in N.D.

March 5, 2011 in The Jamestown Sun

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

What we think: Training classes turning out well

March 4, 2011 in The Jamestown Sun

When the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp. Board added a training center as a strategic plan project, little did its members realize how successful the work force training program would turn out to be.
The third course offering, a basic welding class, looks like another feather in the cap of what is now the Skills Training Committee. The committee evolved out of the strategic plan project and is a collaborative effort by JSDC, James Valley Career and Technology Center and Job Service North Dakota.

What we think: Cabin Fever Days needs more for community

January 28, 2011 in The Jamestown Sun

The Cabin Fever Days event is fast approaching and as has been true for the last several years participation is poor. Set for Feb. 4-13, it’s almost solely sporting activities that were on the calendar already.
The lack of interest is unfortunate as it’s the perfect time of the year for a community-wide event. We’re all tired of snow, ice and cold come February so a celebratory event would be a godsend. <a href=”http://www.jamestownsun.com/event/article/id/128369/”>Continue Reading</a>

What we think: Happy New Year!

December 31, 2010 in The Jamestown Sun

It looks as though 2010 is going out with a bang. But, although the weather is nasty and may ruin a lot of New Year’s Eve plans, it was a pretty good year overall.
Even though we were threatened by a spring of high water and flooding early in the year, it thankfully never materialized. Instead, it turned out to be a good summer and fall, with one of the best harvests in several years. After what 2009 delivered, it was much appreciated. Continue Reading
