Joey and Debra, after hours of flight—found nothing

Sheriffs Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 3—Sheriffs—Episode 3—Scene 1… Outside the Blue Swallow Motel… The first couple (of several making their way into Moosehead County) arrived at the Blue Swallow Motel and checked-in after having driven through Moosehead County on the expressway rather than Historic US 61—thus allowing them to bypass all the towns in the county. They’d arrived from the south—specifically from Grand Marais, where they’d spent the night at a Best Western.

“Well—yeah!”

Sheriffs Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 3—Sheriffs—Episode 2—Scene 1… Danger Bay Airfield… “Ready Sarah?”

“Let her rip!”

Mac spooled-up the two big Alison engines with his feet firmly on the brakes. When they reached maximum RPMs, Mac released the brakes and the big fighter accelerated down the runway.

A P38 requires only a little over 900 feet to become airborne—and moments later the big Night Lighting clawed her way into the air. Continue reading

“Too bad, Mac, you lose!”

Sheriffs Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 3—Sheriffs—Episode 2—Scene 1… Flying near Farenholt’s hideout… Joey and his crew didn’t see the hideout—the trees blocked their view. Joey would have had to fly directly over the cabins to see them.

They KNEW they were being watched

Strykerville Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 2—Strykerville—Episode 9—Scene 1… Danger Bay Airfield… The Sheriffs headed out on patrol as assigned by Sheriff Boomer—all were expecting trouble from the Farenholt gang.

None, however, were certain WHERE that expected trouble would occur—and where their hideout might be.

That is unfortunate. Continue reading

I reckon we’ll find out!

Strykerville Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 2—Strykerville—Episode 8—Scene 1… at Liam and Gypsy’s new home… “How could you know? I don’t even suspect that I’m pregnant.”

“One of my talents, I guess. We don’t have a ‘medicine-man’ in our Eagle Point Band of Ojibwe, we have a medicine woman—I am she. Go visit Doc McLean—he’ll confirm my diagnosis.” Continue reading

“Are the rumors true?”

Strykerville Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 2—Strykerville—Episode 7—Scene 1… Inside Silverthorn’s Café… it was quiet—no customers, just Hiram and Kiwi—perfect for the confrontation both Liam and Gypsy were expecting.

“Well,” Kiwi grinned, “Look who’s here!”

Strykerville Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 2—Strykerville—Episode 6—Scene 1… Moosehead County Road 65 Recovery… Sheriff’s Deputies Chris and Linda were the first to arrive and disturbed nothing as they photographed the scene from every possible angle, carefully dusted for prints, and bagged & tagged any other physical evidence they found.

“I saw a black car below in the trees.”

Strykerville Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 2—Strykerville—Episode 5—Scene 1… An Undisclosed Location… “You did WHAT?” Sylvester Farenholt was more than a little—perturbed—with his two minions, “Did I not tell you to lose those suits? Did I not tell you to keep a low profile? Threatening business-owners thus making our presence here OBVIOUS to even the most thick-headed locals? What have you done with your car? What did you do with the truck you stole—after killing its owners? Your survival depends upon you answers—ANSWER ME! Continue reading

They wouldn’t get there

Strykerville Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 2—Strykerville—Episode 4—Scene 1… Outside Stryker’s Service… “They ain’t gonna shoot live ammo into the town,” Larson speculated—correctly (sort of).

What he didn’t know—that the sheriff had already called his “Rootin’-Tootin’ Posse” to assemble in Forest City—less, of course, those four members piloting the airplanes.

Those four were circling back to make another pass over Strykerville.

Moments later the sound of five 12-cylinder high-performance airplane engines could be heard approaching—again from below the tree-line. Continue reading
