Everyone’s a winner!

Previously:

Meanwhile in 1873 Wichita… A week had passed and those responsible for the range war had been arrested—or run off, and our heroes—minus Boomer, of course, were preparing to return to 2012. What they didn’t know—is they’d been gone for nearly a month; instead of the usual weekend days off—things in 2012 Danger Bay were—well, different than when they left…

Season 7—Chapter 10—Unclaimed—Episode 3:

Surprisingly, Cujo failed to greet them upon their return, but as usual, they found themselves at the Cabin-on-the-Rock when they found themselves back in the 21st Century—but just wasn’t the same with the apparent loss of Boomer—that was about all they could talk about. It wasn’t until Mac noticed the date on his watch that they realized how long in 2012 time they’d been gone.

Chris, with Wyatt Earp IV left immediately for PawZ, and Susan and Andrew for Williams’ Station fearing what they might find there.

Susie was a little surprised to see she was still wearing the Town Marshal’s badge and her Colt .45—she had submitted her resignation—hadn’t she? In any case, she was more concerned with her ranch and she and her new foreman, James Butler Hickok III left for the the ranch. What happened after they arrived is anyone’s guess.

Mac, Larry, Sarah and Jay decided to go to Silverthorn’s Café where they figured they could get caught-up on happenings faster that anywhere else. They weren’t pleased by what they learned.

Mac, Larry, Sarah and Jay decided to go to Silverthorn’s Café

The annual winter cruise was already under way, but with the MV Sparrow instead of the much larger MV Everett Jason Martin; there were simply too few passengers to merit the larger ship. There had been no scheduled air charters at all & Shaddock Farkleberry was considering closing Cooper’s General store. Karen’s Kozy Kabins had only a quarter of its rooms occupied in spite of it being bow hunting season, and the hardware store closed just in the past week.

After listening to all that had transpired and mulling it over a bit, “Why?”

Mac, Moosehead City elected a new mayor and almost all the city council incumbents were defeated a couple of months ago—they decided to open a casino in the old high school.”

Really Hiram? That’s what’s causing the slow-down? That’s a little hard to believe.”

It gets worse—at least in the ‘believability factor,’ the win-loss ratio is unbelievably high; and the word spread very quickly. Most of the patrons come away as winners.”

But—how?”
