God's grace does not come to people who morally outperform others, but to those who admit their failure to perform and who acknowledge their need for a Savior.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Minnesota towing and hauling company is teaming up with a Plains farm aid nonprofit this weekend to ship tons of hay for about a dozen drought-stricken ranchers in North Dakota. Beyer Towing in Fergus Falls, Minnesota, and Farm Rescue have organized a convoy of 14 semi-loads of hay on Saturday and another half dozen loads on Sunday. The cattle feed being sold at a reduced price will be trucked about 225 miles from Rothsay, Minnesota, to Menoken, North Dakota.
 
     The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows 63 percent of North Dakota in some form of drought. Many ranchers have been forced to sell off cattle because they have no hay crop or can't afford to buy hay with demand pushing prices to as high as double the normal cost.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum has asked President Donald Trump for a federal disaster declaration for extensive storm damage sustained by infrastructure, farms and ranches in July.  Burgum is seeking Federal Emergency Management Agency funding for repairs.
 
     A series of severe thunderstorms on July 20-21 produced large hail and high wind that caused more than $1.1 million in damage.
 
     The request Thursday follows the governor's action last week declaring a severe summer storm disaster for Bowman, Dunn and Slope counties.
 
     Burgum made a separate request on Aug. 8 for a presidential major disaster declaration for drought. That request is still pending.
