     AMIDON, N.D. (AP) - Some ranchers and others in southwestern North Dakota are sending a bit of holiday cheer to their counterparts in northwestern South Dakota who are recovering from a devastating early October blizzard.
 
     Volunteer Linda Narum, of Amidon, tells KXMB-TV donations of everything from turkeys to homemade pies to money have been coming in from around Slope County. She says she's overwhelmed by the support. More than 200 people have contributed items or volunteer time for the Thanksgiving baskets.
 
     Children began putting the baskets together on Wednesday and were continuing Thursday. Volunteers plan to deliver the baskets to 55 ranchers Friday.
 
     The blizzard that hit with surprising intensity on Oct. 4 dumped up to 4 feet of snow in western South Dakota, killing more than 15,000 cattle, sheep, horses and bison.
