[[Trouble In The Mountains]]
A True Report of Suspicious Events in the Wilderness of the Yucca Mountains and Surrounding Areas (And A Warning to Any Foolhardy Cowpokes Who May or May Not Be Interested in Exploring Said Regions).
In other news, the explosives merchant, Mr. Io Martin (pictured). is making his quarterly visit to town. He & his wagon will mosey in on Saturday & stay for the week. Miners in the town are dependent on this merchant to continue their operations in the hills.
Currently, they can go no deeper mining entirely by hand. Mine Boss Kirk Fitzsimmons, current manager of the largest mining site in the foothills of the Yucca Mountains, tells the Advertiser the following:
“Without this visit every few months, our operations would completely fail. It’s certainly imperative we budget properly for this visit. Too little money in the bank & our business fails. We’ve been stocking up for months.”With luck, the merchant’s visit will go on without a hitch, & the lifeblood of our community in the desert will be safe for at least a little while longer.
