Went to check things out again, and magically...the cross was back on our side! I wasn't thinking at the time; we should have taken it home. We didn't bother moving it for quite some time, until the digging of the autogate episode happened on July 3rd, 2009.
All this, and NO trespassing! How about that? Except, we noticed again, the cross was gone, to no surprise. Drove up the fence line, dang- he must have found a new place to put it. Do you think it's on our land? Do bears poop in woods?
Now Jason groupies, are you going to still tell me he's an angel? ....and he's just being picked on by those nasty, evil, Freibergers?
After we found the cross in our meadow, and then it was gone....we could not find it again. So I decided to let his lawyer, Mr. Berry be aware of all this. Is this not the way things are done? Did I really care? I have included the fax I sent to Mr. Berry. The fax also included the pictures.

This is in regard to your client, Jason Meduna. The pictures I am faxing you, are of the log ‘cross’ that Jason Meduna had at the entrance of his property, to the left side of the road. Soon after the land (3-Strikes Ranch) was listed for sale, the cross was not there. We found the cross up the fence line to the west, thrown onto our land, where we had cows and calves at the time. I told my sons to throw it back over to his side. They did. We found the cross again, thrown over onto our land. When my sons, Justin and Josh, dug out Jason’s auto gate, (because he would not) and our calves were going to walk the auto gate, to lay in the shade of his entrance sign; they also carried the ‘cross’ and set in inside of Jason’s entrance. They did not trespass to do so, as my photos show. The next day, we noticed the ‘cross’ was gone. I looked in our pasture, and did not find it. I drove to the east of Jason’s entrance on our meadow, and up in the corner, I found the ‘cross’ laying in our meadow. Which, please note, he would have had to trespass onto our land, to position it where it lay. We decided to go and get the ‘cross’ and just take it home, so we didn’t have to worry about it anymore. Justin and Josh went to get the ‘cross’ a couple days after that, and could not find it. Which please note; when he came and retrieved the cross from our meadow, he had to trespass again.
We will be moving into this meadow to hay very soon. I do not know where he put the cross now, but I want you to know, that if we hit that ‘cross’ with our swather, (which by the way, it is a new, New Holland swather and this is the first summer we have used it) it will destroy the swather. The grass is tall, and it won’t be seen until it is too late. If we run into it, it will be Jason Meduna’s sole responsibility to replace it. The cost of this swather is $35,000 - $40,000. Jason C. Meduna will be liable for any damage the ‘cross’ causes to our land, our tractor, and our New Holland swather.
For the first time in 30 years of living on this ranch, there was also a gate dropped between our neighbor, Grover Thompson and us. Luckily, no cattle got mixed up. The gate is beside the road that goes to town. After Justin and Josh dug out Jason’s auto gate, it was filled back in, with even more sand than they dug out. There was also the salt and mineral bunk that was drug to the center of our auto gate, which our kids would have run into in the dark. My daughter-in-law is pregnant, what would have happened had they ran into that bunk, and her air-bag deployed? I would appreciate the shenanigans being ended.
Thank you for your time.
This is also being sent to the Sheriff of Morrill County, and to the Morrill County Attorney.
