(SUNBURST) –A NORTH TOOLE COUNTY RANCHER, WHO WAS INJURED

RECENTLY, FOUND OUT THAT THE NORTH COUNTRY HERE IN THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE

IS A GOOD PLACE TO LIVE.

MAGGIE NUTTER OF THE MARIAS RIVER LIVESTOCK ASSN. PASSED THE STORY

ON TO US AND SHE SAYS IT ALL STARTED AROUND THE KITCHEN TABLE AT THE RICK

AND LANA SCHOCK PLACE.     IT WAS THERE THAT DAKOTA SIMMS, A FRIEND AND

NEIGHBOR OF JUSTIN GALLUP NOTED THAT BECAUSE OF JUSTIN’S RECENT INJURY,

HE WAS UNABLE TO DRIVE HIS FARM EQUIPTMENT AND WAS FAR BEHIND IN GATHERING

AND STACKING THE LARGE ROUND BALES NEEDED TO FEED HIS CATTLE.

THE PROCESS BEGAN THERE WITH PHONE CALLS TO FIND OUT WHO WOULD HELP

OUT AND MAGGIE NOTES THAT EVERY PERSON CALLED WAS WILLING TO DONATE SOMETHING

WHETHER IT BE EQUIPTMENT OR LABOR.

THE PLAN TO GET THE JOB DONE UNFOLDED ON SEPT. 28TH.   SIX TRACTORS LOADED

AND UNLOADED 6 SEMI-TRUCKS AND TRAILERS UNTIL DARK THAT NIGHT.   EARLY SUNDAY

MORNING THEY WERE BACK AT IT AND BY ABOUT 2 SUNDAY AFTERNOON, APPROXIMATELY

1400 LARGE BALES WERE HAULED AND STACKED.

JUSTIN’S WIFE JAY TOLD US THAT IT WAS “PRETTY AMAZING,” AND EVEN CHOKES YOU

UP A BIT.   JUSTIN WAS OVERWHELMED AND EXTREMELY THANKFUL AND MAGGIE NOTED

“IT’S GOOD TO LIVE IN THE NORTH COUNTRY WHERE NEIGHBORS STILL ACT LIKE NEIGHBORS.”
