The Jimmies women's soccer team was not doing well on the field, having one winning season and five head coaches in the 16 years prior to his arrival. In his first season at the helm, Becker let the team to an 8-9-2 record as he worked to lay the groundwork for a successful program. That season, the Jimmies made it to the Association of Independent Institutions conference championship game, where they lost 2-0 to Ashford University. The Jimmies started the current season 1-4-1 before turning the season around, entering the game against Dakota Wesleyan on Wednesday, Oct. 26, with a 10-game winning streak. Becker credits his team’s turnaround to the schedule becoming less mentally and physically taxing as the Jimmies started the season with trips to St. Louis, Missouri, and Oregon.3 months ago The Jamestown Sun

JAMESTOWN — Changes on recommendations for how often women should get cervical cancer screenings can be confusing, according to Dr. Gregg McAdoo, an obstetrician-gynecologist at Jamestown Regional Medical Center.

He said cervical cancer can take away a woman’s ability to have children and take away a life. “That can protect against cervical cancer and save a lot of uncomfortable exams for a woman in the future,” he said.
