On Saturday night, I was coming home from the University of North Dakota hockey game on Highway 81.

The road conditions were terrible because Highway 81 had not been plowed so travel conditions were between 25 to 35 mph.

 About 5 to 7 miles north of Hillsboro, I could not see because the snow kicked up from my tires was coming over the windshield. 

I lost my bearings and slid into the ditch on the east side of the road. 

Jack Moore of Hillsboro and his wife stopped and not only offered me a ride, but called the motel in Hillsboro to see if a room was available.

They dropped me off at the hotel, and Jack told me that he would take me out the next day to get my vehicle rather than calling a tow truck. 

The next morning, he came and got me and pulled my vehicle out of the ditch.

It gets better. Jack refused to accept payment, stating only, “Help someone else out. Pay it forward.”

He told me that if more people would do that, the world would be a much better place.

I can’t say enough good about the kindness from Jack and his wife. What a class act. 

The people of Hillsboro should know what great people they have living in their community. 

Jack is the owner of Agassiz Industrial Group and if I get the chance to do business with him, I would not hesitate.
