“We share your fear.”

Trading Post BannerPreviously: The marshals rode along Main Street where they were welcomed by Professor Hare—still running his college, Adelbert Simpson, president of the bank, and finally, Ira Rohrbacher, owner and operator of “Ira Rohrbacher and Sons Lodging.”

“Welcome back, Marshals,” Rohrbacher smiled, “You folks planning on staying?”

“For now, Mr. Rohrbacher,” Chris replied, “When we left, there was a town marshal here.”

“Got sick last winter and died, I’m sorry to report.”

Season Ten—Chapter Five—Outpost—Episode 6… “Randy Kidd is DEAD?” Sarah was shocked—after all, he was still quite alive in the 21st Century.

“Yes, ma’am, I’m afraid so,” Rohrbacher replied, “It was a month, almost to the day, after we moved the marshal’s office out of the stockade at Randy’s request.”

“I wonder if there is a ‘real world’ Randolph Kidd?” Chris whispered.

“I don’t know,” Jay Cooper replied, “Cujo would know, but she’s otherwise occupied. At least 21st Century Randy exists.”

“Agreed.”

“Why did he move out of the stockade, Mr. Rohrbacher?” Sarah asked.

The marshals met Ira Rohrbacher on Main Street

“Why did he move out of the stockade, Mr. Rohrbacher?” Sarah asked.

“J. T. Goodfellow.”

“J. T. Goodfellow?”

“Yes, Marshal Cooper,” Rohrbacher replied, “A man long on ideas and short on performance. Although, it is thought that the ‘Devil Track Trading Company’ across the lake may have had something to do with it.”

“Is that in Moosehead County?”

“Cook County covers the north side of the lake, so it’s not part of Eagle Point Reservation,” Rohrbacher replied, “And we don’t think Goodfellow is alive.”

“Mac has not shared his orders with us,” Chris said, “I think this may what they involve.”

“We are tasked with turning the trading post into an army outpost,” Jay Cooper observed, “I expect that has priority.”

“Please excuse us, Mr. Rohrbacher,” Sarah was sure she knew their priorities, “We’d best return to the stockade. I’m sure we’ll be investigating Goodfellow’s fate.”

“I’m sure you will, but I fear what you’ll find. I will prepare the marshal’s office for you.”

“We share your fear.”
