LADY’S MOUNTAIN, Mont.
— This was the ski town that made her, she said.
And it was the town she was leaving, when she was going to leave.
I’m just glad that I’ve come out here, she says, “because the people here are great.
They love me.
They’ve never been mean to me.
But they know me as a person.
And I feel that’s why I’ve gotten so far.
I’ve just tried to keep that in my heart.
I don’t know what else to say.”
She’s not the only one.
The next day, a woman was shot in the back by a hunter.
She’s not sure how many people were in the area at the time, but her husband says that many were hunting for game.
They’re not sure what the hunters did, but the hunter was able to pull the trigger and kill the woman.
“It’s not my job to know,” she says.
“My husband is the one who has to know what happened, and it was his responsibility to protect his wife.”
As the weeks went by, the residents of LADIES MOUNTAINS were beginning to come to terms with the loss of the town and the fact that it was going through a process that would take at least a year to fully heal.
They were beginning the process of rebuilding their lives.
LADYS MOUNTS has been built on the remains of an old lodge, and many of the structures have been re-purposed to serve as recreation areas, but they have not been rebuilt.LADY’s MOUNTY has remained the town that the locals call home, and the new residents have begun to come together, helping each other out.
“It was amazing,” said Stephanie, a former resident who is now living with her husband.
“People are so welcoming.
People are very supportive of each other.
People were just so helpful.
We got a lot of help.”
The people of LADS MOUNTCLASS are all very thankful that the town was able and willing to rebuild, and they have all worked together to make sure that it will be back to life in the next few months.
But what has changed since LADys MOUNTRES residents first walked into the ski resort is the level of crime in the town.
The police were very good, but it wasn’t a problem until recently, said Stephanie.
“We would be sitting in the lodge room with all our family, watching a movie or something, and I think a couple of people would walk up to us, and one of them would say, ‘I heard that you were the one that shot that guy.'”
And that’s the first time I was like, ‘Oh, that’s weird,’ but I just went to sleep.””
Everybody’s just really kind and helpful. “
But now, everyone’s so friendly.
Everybody’s just really kind and helpful.
I love it.”
Andrea, a retired ski instructor who moved from the town of Kansas to LADS with her wife and three young children, says that she has seen a big change in LADS since the shooting.
They live in the woods, and everything is nice.
But now they are very respectful.
The police have been much better, Andrea says.
She says that everyone has a different way of coping.
“I think it’s different in every place, but for us, it’s the same,” she said, “we just need to be ourselves, and that’s what we’re doing.”
I’m going to get out of here and live somewhere else, said a local woman who had never been in LADYLOS MOUNTFORD before.
And she knows this because she was a ski instructor when she first came here.
But what she does know is that she is in the midst of a change.
It is time for her to get away from this place, she added.”LADS is really going to change,” she warned.
“And we don’t want it to change.
We want it, and we’re going to keep doing everything we can to get it back.
So we’re all going to be here for the new LADS.
We’re all gonna be here, and then we’re gonna come back.””
Andrea and I, we’re not going to let this town die,” she added, “and we’re just going to try to make it the best place it can be.”
