“Who lives there?”

Every Day Danger Bay Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “Prisoners remain here generally just a few hours before being transferred to the main jail—there are no prisoners here at the moment. The desk is manned from 0800 to 1630 hours daily, by deputies who work both here and in Moosehead City.”

“Tina Carlson is our full-time desk officer and dispatcher. And on weekends, Deputy James Wilson covers the desk, and he works Monday and Tuesday at the Moosehead City desk.”

“The Chief Desk Deputy is Sylvia Moore who works Wednesday through Sunday. Vacation coverage for these three deputies is handled by regular patrol deputies as needed.”

“Excuse me, Wyatt,” Tina interrupted, “I have a call—it seems that someone is threatening Charlie Johnson—claiming he sold him some bad parts—or something—I can’t quite figure it out. The caller hung-up when I asked for more information.”

“Okay,” Wyatt grinned, “Let’s go Jimmy.”

Season 13—Adventure 8—Every Day Danger Bay—Episode 2—Scene 1 On Historic US 61, en route to Charlie’s “junkyard…” “In a few months the Lofts of Danger Bay will be nearly invisible from Danger Bay.”

Wyatt & Jimmy drove past the new Lofts of Danger Bay ©Jack Boardman“…the Lofts of Danger Bay will be nearly invisible from Danger Bay.”

“I hear, Wyatt, they’ve planted some fast growing shrubs to block the view of the buildings,” Jimmy replied, “And even transplanting several tall evergreens behind the shrubs—ain’t technology wonderful?”

“Still, it will take a year or more,” Wyatt added, “All the founding families have moved there—Camille Farkleberry developed the lofts as she was tired of living in the back of their gas station.”

“Yep. Our family invested in the lofts—my grandparents were tired of living in the old cabin the first Silverthorns built. It’s now a tourist attraction.”

“Is that where you live?”

“Still livin’ with my folks—for now. They’re in no hurry to get rid of me and I want to pay off my student loans before getting my own place.”

“You took out student loans?”

“Oh, no,” Jimmy laughed, “From my grandparents—zero interest.”

Jimmy slowed to a stop, “Who lives there?”

Wyatt & Jimmy drove past the Boomer & Halvorson Estate ©Jack Boardman“Who lives there?”

“It’s a retreat for hermits,” Wyatt grinned, “Complete with a private dock and two boats.”

“C’mon—who?” He asked, “I’ve wondered every time I go by, but forget to ask.”

“The sheriff and the Halvorsons,” Wyatt replied, “And they throw some epic parties.”

“The sheriff?” I don’t see him ever letting his hair down.”

“What hair?” Wyatt laughed, “Their parties are limited to their closest friends, and are quite laid-back.”

“That’s ‘cause they’re old—like you,” Jimmy teased.

“I can clearly see you’re campaigning for the graveyard shift,” Wyatt laughed, “You might just be successful.”

A few minutes later they pulled into Charlie’s place, “Oh GREAT—bikers!”

There were two bikers having an animated conversation with Charlie—this can’t be good!
