JAMESTOWN — There won't be scheduled events until October, but the University of Jamestown is already preparing to use the new Harold Newman Arena as soon as August. Workers expect to have the training rooms and commercial laundry ready in the Newman Arena by the time Jimmie football camp starts on Aug. 1, said Tom Heck, vice president of planning and administration at UJ. The university is set to take ownership of the multipurpose facility from the contractor on Aug. 25, he said.

JAMESTOWN, N.D. -- The Jamestown Tourism Board is planning three potential “feed the buffalo” donation receptacles that would be placed near the World’s Largest Buffalo in Frontier Village or at other locations around Jamestown to help fund an eventual restoration project of the World’s Largest Buffalo statue.
JAMESTOWN, N.D. -- Microbreweries are popping up across North Dakota -- in Fargo and the Bismarck-Mandan area, along with Minot, Williston, Grand Forks and Watford City -- but no brewer has stepped up yet to open in Jamestown. Jamestown is a good small market distribution area for breweries and could support a taproom or microbrewery, said Mike Frohlich, co-owner of Laughing Sun Brewing Co. in Bismarck. Microbreweries and taprooms provide a uniquely local social environment and product that are in demand, he said.
